Braved the hour and a half badge line. Fortunately we had wonderful company to share the time with. Should probably be fine for the rest of you once the line gets going.

I just got in line. Whoosh, hope it doesn't last 1.5 hours, then it's a mad rush to find the table.

On the way home. As always, time went fast. Thank you to all the players who came down. There is no campaign without the players.

Safe travels to everybody still on the road. I miss you all.

Well, after stopping to play MORE games and watch Game of Thrones, finally home.

Leaving is not the worst. Waking up tomorrow and realizing I am not gaming today is worse.

But we have less than a year until we are doing this again.

Here's hoping you haven't come home just to watch Cleveland burn... ;)

Actually, I am kinda hoping for that. Just to watch the RNC have to deal with the mess.

We got home around 3:30am this morning.
Mark is probably still in bed asleep, but I'm home and finally up, because I couldn't get much sleep due to the fact that they are using a jackhammer right across the street from me at the gas station. Worse part is that they can't seem to get into a regular rhythm with working with it, to make it easier to try and relax.
Then there is the thought that they will hit something wrong and blow up the gas station, so I figured it was just best to get up and work around the house.

Had a great time being with everyone, and can't wait til next year. Stay safe!

Been home for about an hour and a half (had to start laundry and watch Game of Thrones), and missing the folks from the con something fierce. Many, many thanks to Mark and Dave for all of the time and effort put in to both prep and run the games (and thanks to Ken for stepping up and running overflow). I had a fantastic time playing, connecting with friends, and making some new ones. Cannot wait till next year!!!!!

So if any of you were curious how we did numbers-wise for Origins this year.
Total Games Run: 15
Max Player Total: 96
Actual Player Total: 139
% of Fill by Players: 145%

If this were GenCon I'd want to seriously lower those numbers. But since we have plenty of GMs here at Origins, I think we're doing just fine.
