Okay, that explains why it was so hard to get a room nearby. At first I was like, "Hey, maybe Origins is coming back in a big way," but this makes more sense...

Please let it be the Gideons again! They are sooo touchy about the larpers and cosplayers.

And Jeremy says we are booked for next year, so I am ready.

Regretfully, I have to cancel my trip to Origins due to a family emergency. I had prereg'd for ep8 (6/17 9am) and DOMINGO GIGANTE!, so there will be an available seat for generics.

I'm sorry that Miguel is going to miss out on the fun. Hopefully I can get to another con before Origins next year.

Bunch of things to post today

FIRST, TWO DAYS LEFT


Second, Miguel, any chance we'll see you at GenCon? (if not, never fear we will see you!)

Third, checked weather.com and it looks like low 80's to low 90's for the con with the obligatory thunderstorm on Thurs. So pack appropriately.

Fourth, did I mention two more days until we leave?

So question about chairs at the con. Are they comfortable? Would i be pointless to pack a seat cushion?

I've never noticed them to be particularly uncomfortable. But no reason why you suffer. So sure bring one along.

I am mostly packed, have dinner reservations with Dad for 6 pm (since I won't be here on Sunday for Father's Day), and in approximately 17 hours, I will be on the road. :D Cannot wait....

Anyone who provides me with a recliner gets double drama dice to start with, and ten points of the new "Francois society" reputation.

Mark should be on the road. So I get to jump in.

ONE day left before the coolest 5 days ever!

I just printed out the PA adventure and I can say that I have never written a game like this one for the campaign. You have never played a session like this for the campaign. And I am pretty sure you will be talking about it for a while.

I'd hold out for an upholstered sedan chair and porters.
