With 2-3 conventions within 3 hour drives and GaryCon / GameHole con, I've spent my luck points with the wife.

I have not been to Origins in years and was earlier considering this.

I am going. Looking forward to seeing the events schedule. Thinking about finally trying out True Dungeon this year, since it's Kingkiller Chronicles-themed.

Last year I ended up writing a C&C adventure and running it on the spot when the planned CK no-showed. It was a blast, and probably not a feat I could’ve easily accomplished in any other system.

I want to come down for at least one day, but the lack of hotel space is a problem. I would definitely play in a TrueDungeon event if I could.

I would like to but the odds are about my age to 0.

How did I miss your game at Origins last year? Damn.. I too had to run two CnC games when the CK was a no show.. watch for me this year.

Assuming this refers to me, after realizing that the CK was a no-show, it was a “hey, if you guys still want to play, my brother can teach you the rules and I’ll come up with something I can run” moment. I'm guessing it was the same CK that you had to shoulder the burden for.

I’ll keep an eye open!

I attended Origins in 2010 and 2011 then hit Gen Con in 2012 - 2014 and Gary Con ever since. Wouldn't mind hitting Origins again one of these days but Gary Con just has so much Old School goodness compared to every other con that i don't know when it would happen.

Post Re: Origins... who's going?
We should try to coordinate running games on Fri and Sat. I'm trying to talk some of the Trolls into coming on a social manner I do not think they will do a booth.

The date to sign up to run is early April.

I'm going to run "Three Faces of Evil", its a four hour to six hour game. For 4-5th lvl 6-8 players. Simple enough for beginners. I was going to run it once each day. I'm going to run it ideal for new to CnC players with seasoned players mixed in with give aways of CnC stuff and low cost books. Kind of a play it before you buy it cheap. Sales idea... much more fun for the Trolls than standing in a booth. How better to sell the game.

We will likely go down Thur night and head home Sunday.

Thoughts?

I will be there Thursday, Friday and Saturday. I'm all in for any C&C game. Let's figure out a day and time. :)

Post Re: Origins... who's going?
Whomever is going to run a game please email or pm me so that we can attempt to coordinate times and not be assigned an overlapping time slot. I'm going to run 4 hours or 5 at most and the other at 5 or 6. Same game, two times, trying to get a feel for how long it really takes, 4 hours is a bit to short for most folks, but I think 6 hours is too long.

We have to sign up in a matter of days (April 4th or so).

I think the event submission deadline has passed at Origins. If there are no official TLG events, is anyone going to do an *unofficial* game? I'd be down for that as well.

Post Re: Origins... who's going?
I just realized April 2 was the end of submissions, not the start.. :oops: so, I just pleaded my case to run a game with the admin folks. I'm still shooting for official games. If not I will run unofficial games 8-)

Can't believe I blew that!

I've got no news on Trolls coming for fun, but I hear nothing official.

Anyway, those going should see what we can do about some gaming.

There is one CnC game. #4963 "Day Job for the Dark One".

Who's running it? We cannot seem to sign up to play.

Plus I have great stuff for whomever is running the game.

Post Re: Origins... who's going?
I haven't been to Origins in 17-18 years. I would love to make it out but I don't think the dice are with me.
I've gone to GaryCon and will be going to Gamehole later this year.
Finance wise - I think the wife would be happy with me not going.
One must pick battles carefully. ;)

Well, the evil demon known as Budget has struck me. :) I hope to still go to Origins, but if I do, I will only be there Saturday (all day) and Sunday morning. Any word on any TLG games to be played there?

Post Re: Origins... who's going?
If someone does go, would you do me a favor?

Please stop by both C150 (Steve Jackson Games' dedicated game room) and booth 935 (Adventure Retail) and grab any Munchkin promos (preferably not the collectible card game [CCG]) they have. There should also be a "card machine" at one of the places and get some of the cards out of it -- I think they're usually ¢50 ($.5) each.

I'm willing to pay you for the effort and, if you find the card machine, $10 for that (so if they are half a dollar each, that's 20 cards) and of course shipping.

Thanks.

Post Re: Origins... who's going?
I'm going. I'm going to run "Three Faces of Evil"... I need players and spread the word of mouth as this game did not get registered officially. That said, I'm also looking for NEW players to CnC so if you have friends or those with you or just met that want to try CnC that is the purpose of the game. Plus there is one registered CnC game too. Saturday, 1 pm, "Day Job for the Dark One". I will have PH (new) for new players to borrow and ideally buy if they like the game for just $10! Plus prozes and give aways.. so spread the word, again, ideally for some CnC players who know the game but largely to introduce the game to new folks.

I will be there Fri - Sun. Hope to see you at the tables.. I think none of the Trolls are going this year.
