Dublin 2019 An Irish Worldcon – a handful of memories, part 1

I love Worldcons. I have only been to three of them, but I have fallen in love with the very first one. With each Worldcon I attended I was more and more involved in them. In Dublin, I have not only been a gopher and not only helped in promotions, but I also had a chance to work in the Programme team.

ZjAva 10 – once again on playing RPGs at conventions

This year marks the tenth anniversary of the ZjAva convention. I did not participate in all of the previous editions, but this one was not my first either. It is a con that concentrates on gaming (and, in my opinion, mainly on RPGs). With over 130 RPG sessions over the weekend it is currently, I believe, the biggest RPG event in Poland.
