A Wizard World convention was in Austin this past weekend... It was pretty cool to be in Artist Alley during the show, and even cooler to meet a few D-toid community members who were able to come by and say hello (thanks guys!!).
But on a whim, the gf and I brought our DS's to the show and popped in a copy of Dragon Quest IX. We hopped into the Stornway Inn and set the mode to "Canvas for Guests." sure enough, by the end of the weekend we had no less than seven new guests!
Not only is that a cool feature for the game that works great in public gatherings (one can only imagine the crowds amassed at something like PAX), but I think it's super cool that there are perfect strangers out there who also got my own character to show up in their game. So if any of you out there have a couple new guests by the name of Edco and Vinx, thanks for the canvas!
