Tyrathia's 'First Day of Seminars' Notes

I'm losing my voice, limping and exhausted and going to find some FOOD as soon as these are posted.

I didn't necessarily agree or disagree with any of these, but decided to give the GMs the rest of Simucon and the other seminars to convince me one way or the other. Do with the information what you will.
