James Fulbright was introduced to AD&D by a friend in 1979. Just a few years after joining his first gaming group, his friends convinced him to start attending conventions like StellarCon and Hexacon. It wasn’t long before attending cons led him to start helping out with those cons; which, in turn, led to running StellarCon (which he did for far too long). Over the years, James has also helped out with RavenCon, was on the founding board of ConCarolinas, and worked VIP Registration at DragonCon. In 2013, he, and a small group of other fans, started their own convention, ConGregate. In 2017, James chaired his first DeepSouthCon, DSC 55. In 2021, that honor came around again, in the form of DeepSouthCon 59. The summer of 2024 will mark ConGregate’s 10th Anniversary—how did that happen?

In addition to running cons, James has also been known to put together a costume or two, blog a bit about running cons, and even run a game or two at conventions.
