    who's going to GENCON ?

    I'll be heading down to gencon for 1 day ( sat.) Wondering if canonfire would be willing to do a " canonfire lunch " or just a gathering to say hello in person. I'll be going down to just spend a bunch of money Smile

    If anyone is interested, PM me or just say " hell yea " and we'll get something going.

    Sorry bout that TT. Someday!

    Rob, baronzemo. I shall be there for the duration. A Saturday lunch fits nicely as I am not scheduled for anything yet (seems eating is what I do there half the time). Anyone else we know going to be there? And more importantly, any ideas on a place to congregate?

    Well as far as a place to eat, Sullivan's Steakhouse is a great place to eat or we could always go to Happy Hooters Happy
    Also i thought i would repost this again about 1mo. before gencon to see if any one else can go at the last moment.
    Looking forward to meeting everyone.

    I would prefer dinner (or a at late lunch) at a reasonably-priced venue, preferably with alcohol.

    If Sullivan's is the place I'm thinking of, I'm afraid it might be a little too high-priced for some (though I wouldn't mind trying the food sometime--I hear it's good).

    I was thinking perhaps the Ram Brewery--most entrees are under 10-15 bucks, and they've got a decent beer selection, too.

    I'm sorta with Rob on this one mainly b/c I've seen that Ram Brewery many times and have never gone in it. A search of Sullivan's also shows me that it is way out from downtown, and I'd rather stick to things within walking distance of the con. Hooters -is- in walking distance by the way, I'm not ruling that out.

    I'm no longer sure if I'll be making Gen Con this year, as plans fell through with the people I was going with. If I do make it, I'll be there.

    So,

    I've really never been a big time poster, more of a reader. Nonetheless, I've been away from Canonfire and GH for far too long (over two years... long and sad story). Yet hope abounds.......

    I am rejoining the ranks of the 'Hawkers and Canonfire. And better yet, I will be at GenCon this year! So if you don't mind a new face, I would like to join the lunch get together.

    Still 1pm at Ram on Saturday?

    I am going to pencil Ram in at 1pm Saturday yes. I have no great plans beyond this and am open to meet-ups anywhere anytime at the con, but for starters this is good. I'd love to induce more people to show up with something as I'm a big face of Canonfire. Not sure what but I'll think on it for a few days. Anyhow, be you a long time fan of this site or new, or lurker, try and show up because well, the more the merrier, and it'll help us identify the GH fans from all else. rolleyes

    Raaaargh. Wanna hang with the 'Hawkers! I'll have to see how it goes when I get to the con.

    In chat last week, there was talk of "covering" the con on behalf of the CF! site. Is this something people would actually be interested in? We can rig Twitter or Facebook updates to display in a different site, or we could just link to the appropriate Twitter page. (Which I don't currently have, but could create) Web updates from my phone aren't real feasible, but texting/SMS updates would be fine. Alternately, all attendees could share highlights at the end of the day on this thread or elsewhere. Or we could do nothing at all.

    Anyway, I just recall it being mentioned in passing, and wanted to make sure that if the CF! PTB are/were interested, we get moving with plans in that direction.

    Looking forward to seeing all y'all at Gen Con! Happy

    Darn it grodog!

    As to Talin's assignment from chat (Gary Holian's thought it was a good idea to try). I'm not sure how to proceed beyond a sticky'd CF forum thread. I'm not up on how Twitter works nor have I ever done internet things from a phone (I'm behind on the times). Talin I'd suggest going with whatever you feel you have time for b/c any little info might be fun and interesting to read. I doubt anyone expects a constantly updated blog with tons of con coverage. It'll just be a challenge finding info relevant to GH this year. Also since this is the first time anyone here has done something like this it'll be a learning experience anyhow. I guess I'll bring my laptop this year so I can join in. I usually travel light.

    p.s. Any last minute takers for the Ram Brewery lunch, Sat. @1pm? Any and all canonfirees are welcome, be you long time or lurker. I don't eating by myself btw, but come on folks make the trip worth our time. Surprised

    All settled in to the hotel room! Played a hilarious yet oddly intense game of Red Dragon Inn down in the lobby, finally got the blasted laptop to claim one of the limited hotel internet connections, and I'm gonna be at the convention center, eagerly awaiting 11 to roll around so I can begin the hunt for awesome schwag, and pick up my pre-ordered Pathfinder books. I'll also be uploading/linking to pics of any amazingly cool, sexy, or entertainingly bad cosplayers I encounter, and of course, ever on the prowl for Greyhawk-related tidbits.

    Word to the wise, and you'd think I would have learned by now...have your badge mailed to you. The Will Call lines are just as long on Wednesday as they are any other day it seems.
    Let's see how Thursday goes. Have fun Talin, and all attending!

    There was an incredibly long line of people signing up for badges at Gen Con, but when I was there, the Will Call lines were moving quite swiftly and efficiently. I saw a leprechaun on stilts and a stormtrooper in a kilt, a lot of people who were extremely hot, and a lot of people who were not as hot as they imagined. A girl dressed up for True Dungeon was wearing little besides pointy ears and horns, and dazed my party for 1d4 rounds. Experienced an unfortunately rude and awkward waiter at the Marriott's restaurant, but unfailingly cheerful and helpful staff at the Staybridge. Women in Gaming panel produced much interesting discussion, though perhaps not interesting in the way the panelists intended. Demo'd the next expansion for Red Dragon Inn, raced from place to place, tried to take in the amazing masterpieces on Artist's Alley, and was just generally overwhelmed by all there is to see and do. Maybe I'll be able to be a bit more in command of my surroundings tomorrow. First up: attending (NOT entering!!!) Queen of the Geeks pageant.

    I want to find meaningful GH-themed news, but we'll see.
