Dan Reeser is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker from Maryland who has lived in Montana for that past eight years. He enjoys video games, table top games, and RPGs. Dan loves science fiction and fantasy with some occasional horror. He is the Game Master that doesn't want to actively kill or maim your characters. And the rules can always be bent if they entertain the Game Master. Dan will forget your name and will usually be too embarrassed to ask. Dan also has a great book in him that will eventually be written.

(Tentative)

  • moderator Sat 1:00 - 1:50 PM, Was the Book/Comic Really Better?, Patio Tent (1)
    Moderator: Dan Reeser; Panelists: Tony Gregori, Frog Jones, Dan Reeser

    It seems that every time there's a book/comic & movie/TV series of the same story, somebody claims "the book/comic was better," but is that always true? What stories do you feel were better told in visuals than in text?

  • Break Sat 1:50 - Sat 4:00
  • panel Sat 4:00 - 4:50 PM, Session Zero, Rocket Tent (1)
    Moderator: Kyle Elliott (Big Kyle); Panelists: Kyle Elliott (Big Kyle), Frank Pruett, Dan Reeser

    It's not really a gaming session, but it might be the most important part of a successful campaign. Come learn how a Session Zero (or even two of them) can revolutionize your games, and change your gaming group for the best. Frankly, you won't know how you got along without it once you've tried it for yourself.

  • Break Sat 4:50 - Sun 11:00
  • panel Sun 11:00 - 11:50 AM, The Legend of Zelda: Which is Best?, Ballroom B
    Moderator: Mary Beth Horvath; Panelists: Erik Evjen, Mary Beth Horvath, Dan Reeser

    Come discuss the Legend of Zelda franchise. Why do we love it so much? Why is Skyward Sword the worst?

  • Break Sun 11:50 - Mon 10:00
  • moderator Mon 10:00 - 10:50 AM, Personality Goes a Long Way, Yellowstone
    Moderator: Dan Reeser; Panelists: Dan Reeser

    The Myers-Briggs personality test is the most popular of our time, & writers of all kinds use it to guide their characters. Is this a good way to build a realistic person, & how can we keep from having the same 16 characters over & over?

  • moderator Mon 11:00 - 11:50 AM, Should I Stay or Should I Go?, Yellowstone
    Moderator: Dan Reeser; Panelists: Dan Reeser

    Battlestar Galactica's last season on Earth & Buck Rogers's last season in space. Which was better/worse?
