Not mine. larp duties now belong to Sam and Alexandra. I am just consulting and maybe serving as a GM/NPC.
I don't mind growing old... but I hate growing up.

So, Sam and Alexandra? My main question this early is: have you decided on a day?

Logistics for wig, robe, prophet's cross, and such, isn't so easy to coordinate for those of us staying at a motel miles away.

However, if there could be a room/place for us to place our stuff ahead of time, that might be a good thing! Not a dressing room, but just a place to put our stuff. (Perhaps someone staying on a room by him/herself?)

We haven't decided on a day since last time we ran a LARP we had a whole evening free (friday night) now it's all full. But never fear we'll find a place.

And yes, Mike, you can store your stuff in my room.

Just booked a hotel room for next year already. It's getting harder and harder to find a decent price closer to the con now.

Also, I will attend the larp in sweatpants, swilling beer and likely having chili breath.

This happens to also be very much in character. This is by design.

I understand your pain. When Origins first was established in Columbus, I used to get a room at a motel in the German Village area, then take a public bus to and from the Con.

Now it's just easier to drive from a motel in Worthington, costing less than $60, then park for $5.

Ok despite the fact that there's no movement on the Origins website, the hotels have the Origins discount in their system. So feel free to go get your room as of today (I got the Crowne Plaza as usual).

Also got an email from Paul regarding fill rates and some date information. If you're curious, we ran 21 of the 22 games scheduled and turned in 113 tickets of a possible 132. I don't know what that means (save it's a solid "B" grade) But I don't think it means we should make any changes.

As for the dates. They won't be opening Event Submission today (like that have in the past) because they're trying to improve the system (an admirable goal). They'd like us, the GMs to give them feedback by the 15th (in order for them to implement the changes). I personally would like to see a system more similar to GenCon's (in which you put the events in directly to the system and can edit and make copies) rather than a spreadsheet. But I assume that's so basic they'll get a ton of suggestions for that kind of thing.

Unfortunately, there was no mention of fixing Event Registration. This is just for us GMs to have an easier time imputing our events into the system.

I just booked my room at the Crowne Plaza, and they only had 5 rooms left in the GAMA Origins block.

So, funny story. Turns out Hotel Reg was not supposed to start until today at noon. BUT since they got the info early, those of us who did it early get to keep our rooms. Woo!

Hmm, oddity. I just stopped by the Origins website to see if they had info about Event Submission up. That page still says they're in the process of updating the system and they'll announce the go-live date soon. That said, if you go to the Registration page, it says Registration opens November 15 (this upcoming Wednesday). Not sure how Event Submission fits into that but this is Origins after all.

Booked a room at the Residence Inn. Nervous about the LARP, but ready to try it.

Still in a holding pattern for event submission. Website says (as it has for a while) that they aren't quite ready but keep checking back in.

HOWEVER, Registration is live. We, of course, have to wait until we get the group code, just wanted those of you who can't wait to know.
