Welcome to one of the best kept secrets in gaming! Gary Con is an annual game convention held every March in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin. It honors the memory of the Father of Role Playing Games, E. Gary Gygax.
Born into a world with a bewildering array of worthless “life choices” and meaningless “life options.” As a youth, it was with great insight and eagerness he took to examine those options and pathways, promptly ridiculed them and dumped them into the waste bin that would become other’s lives. Stephen chose the path of the brutal verbal assaults which, on occasion, lead to brutal physical rebuttals. Brittle teeth in hand, Stephen chose an academic path to lengthen what was about to become a shorter than average life span. He wasted years of his life pursuing higher education in history before realizing that we all are, no matter what, doomed to repeat it.
Forsaking those noble causes rife in academia (such as bra burning, speech filtration, self-aggrandizement and longer summer breaks), Stephen foundered for mere moments before, in a dollar bill induced stupor, and he decided to strike it rich by creating a company that sold games. He is presently the CEO and chief partner in Chenault & Gray publishing, doing business as Troll Lord Games. He has written a bundle of adventures, articles and books: chief among them the codex of Aihrde, Monsters & treasures of Aihrde, Lion in the ropes, Shades of Mist, and much more. He is well known for his curt phone conversations and one word emails.
