    So yesterday GenCon has filed for Chapter 11 and declared bankruptcy. GenCon was also responsible for this years' Star Wars Celebration, and according to George Lucas' spokesmen, failed to deliver specified profits to the Make A Wish Foundation. I didn't post a link because there are numerous sources on this, I just find stuff like this interesting.

    I didn't know the exact details but if Gen Con was suppose to deliver X amount of money to those Make A Wish foundation, they should be held accountable.

    They must have failed their saving throw against bankruptcy and taken d20 damage.

    I thought this would be chapter 11 of the serialized adventures of a gamer obsessed with tabletop gaming and his plucky skeptic companion.

    :(
