The Dragon Con Report

Dragon Con is one of the ESO Network’s favorite conventions of the year.

Since 2012, we’ve devoted a monthly podcast to a countdown to the big event over Labor Day weekend. While you work to perfect your costume, and your batch of apple pie ferments, give a listen to Mike Gordon, Mike Faber, Darren Nowell, Mary Lou Who and many others while we deliver all the news, notes, tips, and tricks for newbies and veterans alike.
