HMGS-Midwest's Autumn Wars is over. Great day of gaming in a new and vibrant venue. Set up began on Friday night, and we finished in the wee hours of Sunday morn. We had 10 games, broken into morning, afternoon and evening sessions. 10 Gm's ran games for 41 players. This was also a trial for our Tabletop Events system for online registration. Feedback was so positive we will do this again next year. Thanks to all who supported, GM'ed, and attended.
