And given the poor showing for Episodes 11 and 12 (23 tickets still remain out of 32), I'm wondering if I should feel insulted :roll:

If we're getting new players, I wouldn't worry about it. No one likes to start a series in the middle. :-)

Updated the events list to reflect that we have a location now!

Mariott Ballroom 2 (tables vary but always nearby one another).

We're back up on the second floor in the back hallway this year (as opposed to the first floor middle hallway like last year).

Are we two tables a session again this year, or back to one?

Never trust a con that puts your events in a hallway.

Does have a point there. Good foot traffic, easy access to the food court, close to the bathrooms. Could have been worse. ;)

You didn't spend 12 hours fighting to keep attention on the game instead if the escalator and shouting. Hallways suck for gaming venues.

Heya All you GenCon HoA peeps! Apparently someone started turning in tickets so we now have a couple of openings to the Personal Agendas AND one to one of the Flashbacks on Friday. Now's your chance!

I made a LOT of time-commitments this year, volunteering with Paizo, so I don't think I'm'a make any of the HoA sessions. :-(

I'll try to drop by and say "Hi", at least.

Yes definitely stop by and say Hi. We have a couple of regulars who didn't show up to Origins this year and so I'm worrying about them.

I'm looking forward to starting the HoA campaign with Episode 7 at GenCon.

Yeah, I was supposed to be at Domingo Gigante during Origins, but I stayed up until 4:30 on Saturday night drinking. That shouldn't have been a problem, however, as I always sleep terribly away from home and usually only get 3-4 hours of shuteye. But somehow I managed SIX miraculous hours in a foreign bed, which caused me to miss the slot.

I don't think I'll have any problems like that in Indy, though, seeing as it's the first slot of the con. I feel good about my chances...

Good luck with construction! Dunno which route you're taking, but this past weekend I-80 was squeezed to single lanes...

Mark just hung up. They are just past Akron and heading the the 76/71 interchange. So about an hour and twenty north of Columbus.

I heard the big deal was Floki and the impending nuptials. (And something unrelated about someone joining a club... It's a good day to meet good company)

Player who kicked Carlos in the groin with a roll of 69 to hit.
Cow surfing achieved.
