I have heard that a whole lot of awesome happened at Gen Con this year. I wouldn’t know from personal experience, as I wasn’t there. But one of the awesomes was this: There is a new award given out by Wizards of the Coast and Baldman Games, called DM of the Year! And the first award goes to none other than my brother-in-law, David Stark.

To learn more about David, the award, and all things Gen Con D&D, head over to GeekDad and read Rory’s post on the matter. Since he’s David’s brother, he got the inside scoop on what the event was like. You can also visit David’s new website to get a feel for his ideas.

I have not yet had the privilege of role playing with David, but I’m sure that day will come.
