Jeremy Crawford, Dungeons and Dragons, PAX Unplugged Keynote
PHILADELPHIA – Oct. 29, 2018 – Jeremy Crawford, lead rules designer and managing editor on Dungeons and Dragons at Wizards of the Coast, will give the “Storytime” keynote at PAX Unplugged 2018, taking place Nov. 30 – Dec. 2, 2018 at Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia, PA.
The lead designer of Dungeons and Dragons Player’s Handbook (5th Ed.), the definitive ruleset for “D&D” players, Crawford joined Wizards of the Coast in 2007 before going on to contribute to many crucial tomes for players and dungeon masters, such as the Dungeon Master’s Guide, Xanathar’s Guide to Everything, and Mordenkainen’s Tome of Foes. He then leveled up to become the company’s lead rules designer on the renowned tabletop game.
“Dungeons and Dragons is among the important tabletop games ever created, and we still love and enjoy it to this day,” said Penny Arcade co-founder and Acquisitions Incorporated host Jerry Holkins. “We’re honored to have such an influential figure in the game’s history share his experience with PAX Unplugged attendees and can’t wait to hear his stories at the show.”

Families can pick up Sunday kids badges (for children age 7 – 12) for $10 apiece.
