So, Toady posted about this some time ago in the dev log. It's an entire day of roguelike and roguelike celebrations!

It's going to be my first time really being in California, but I'm definitely going to be attending. If anyone needs a ride or wants to carpool, I'm game to drive anywhere in a 200 miles radius thereabouts. Also, if there's any interest in a mini-bay 12 meet-up afterwards, we could organize something like that as well.

Yes! I'm totally excited for this. In fact, I was so excited I bought a ticket without really thinking about how to get down there (or if I can even make time). So, depending on a lot of factors yet to be decided I might want to carpool or have an extra ticket for someone.

It's going to be a pretty defining moment for roguelikes, especially if it starts an annual tradition.

So uh I have an extra ticket if anyone wants it. I can't make it and I'm really sad ;_; but if you think you can use it then PM me. Note that I'm not sure if I can safely transfer the ticket without compromising my personal information, but if you express interest I will take a look.

eeeee I'm so frustrated I can't go. .

It was nice to hear from the Adam's brothers about what inspired DF.

Reading some coverage of the event, I came across this brief blurb regarding the brothers Adams:

The creators of Dwarf Fortress, Zach and Tarn Adams, also gave a talk. Afterward, they were swarmed by adoring fans desperate for a moment of facetime. “Am I the only one entirely infatuated by Tarn?” a viewer of the Twitch livestream had commented. “What a sexy man.”

Figure that I can log back into this account for some necromancy. Roguelike Celebration 2018 is occurring in San Fransisco on October 6th-7th. Toady is scheduled to talk (and he even has top billing on the eventbrite page!).

I'm a bit on the fence about going, but if anyone else is going to make the trip, I can do a few miles of driving if someone is willing to comp me gas, or we could always do a mini-meet-up there.
