Conspicuously missing from this convention are TSR events. Even the term GM takes over for DM across the board. There is an excerpt toward the front of the book detailing that Origins is not allow to use specific brand names without permission under the threat of lawsuit.

Following is an article from this issue (page 8)

Jack Scruby was the guest of honor for this convention. Following is a scan of a reprint inside this issue (page 39), that was originally printed in the COURIER, Vol. 1 #5 article by Bob Beattie.
