I have both good news and bad news in this area.
Bad News (at least for us)
Larry Nemecek will not be joining us for this year's CONduit. He fell into a very good paying gig over the top of our weekend. Congrats to Larry!
Alexis Cruz of Stargate and Stargate SG1 fame will be joining us instead. Alexis is a great guy who has an acting background, is an avid gamer, and would love for us to become fans of his new graphic novel. Welcome to Alexis!
