We would like to acknowledge the efforts of Tom Graves in putting this together, and Col. Khlnck for locating a venue. We would also like to thank the presenters, without whom there would be no PlanetsCon. Most especially, we would like to thank Tim Wisseman ( @Tim Wisseman ) for creating this wonderful game and Joshua ( @Joshua ) for providing a modern interface for it.
