This means a lot of people have been left high & dry by Ken "Whit" Whitman, who has attempted, and failed, to run his scams (highly biased, but what would you call all of these fraudulent activities?) under the "protection" of a company, in this case d20 Entertainment, that doesn't exist.
Basically Ken "Whit" Whitman is on the hook for the plethora of small and large cons and instead of making his victims "whole" he invests in a con? No, not the type of "con" you'd normally associate with Ken "Whit" Whitman, but the type normally associated with those he normally fleeces: a gaming convention.
We hadn't heard of BobCon before, mostly because all of us live outside of the area. Luckily our readers do not and "Chuck M" gave us a head's up.
"Special thanks to our friends and Patron-level sponsors d20 Entertainment. You may know them as the creators of the Brothers Barbarian web series, the Knights of the Dinner Table live action series, based on Jolly Blackburn's timeless gamer comic series, or the recently funded Spinward Traveller, based on Mark Miller's classic space role-playing game Traveller. d20 Entertainment is gamer culture, for gamers, by gamers."
Of course you usually want to keep connected to your money source in some fashion. Hard to come around for another scam if you don't have an audience to take from....
