My whole family is amped and ready. Can't wait for Thursday (minus the formal junk grab at the airport), and will be open for any game of any type throughout the weekend.

Game on.

Great Con guys! I'll have to write a lot of notes before my senile old brain makes me forget all the fun I had meeting everyone again, all the new people I got to meet, the talks I got to have with Luke and even Skip Williams in the waning hours of the Con, etc...

Not to mention the great gaming memories of flaming kobold skulls, Druids taken out by Wyverns, exploding Staves of Power, Hooker bait, 400 foot falls from chasms, Thrones of Command, vampire drow, etc....

Tons of boardgames
Loads of junk food
Mucho excellente choices of RPGs
Gallons of caffeine
Many gallons of New Glarus craft brews
Excellent amount of Crusaders (but we need more)
Near perfect liters of superior distilled spirits

D&D
C&C
Jousting (Chainmail rules)
Chariot racing
Le Mans sports car racing
F.I.T.S./Dawn Patrol (WWI airplane combat in the skies)
et. al.

The Trolls Lord ran a huge table of players!! Someone said like 19 or so players. Largest game I've ever seen and I think it was the largest game at GC!

Well done, Steve!

God Bless Gary!

:D

I didn't take very many pictures, but I sure should have! Its what happens when you get too wrapped up having such a good time! I really wish I took more pictures of the games I played in so I can remember everyone I met, especially for the first time.

I met Luke G., Skip Williams, lots of Kenzer crew and fans, new C&C fans, including Heather, her husband "sajFlorida", their son, Brooke, Roz, Tim, his wife, who are also from Florida, I even got the chance to talk to Gail for a few seconds and at least thank her for having the Con. I wanted to talk to her more, but she looked like she was resting, and even though she responded very warmly and friendly I made myself leave her alone.

Thanks to Shane, Brian and John for some great gaming, and to Morty, Rigon, Tim, Brooke, Roz, Gerry, Mona, Heather, Brianna, Steve W., et al for helping making the games great fun!

Oh, and John wins "Killer CK" for the weekend, he killed the most PC's over the weekend, with the most kills by falling I think I have ever seen! He even killed his own wife's character! BALLS of STEEL! Then again Mona took it all in stride, then went on to mention how he killed her first PC when they met, so...

Anyways, great fun, great memories, and had a great time seeing everyone again and meeting others for the first time. You all know who you are even if I am too senile (or too drunk right now) to remember every ones names, etc...

Oh, and Jaybird, I am going to have to pay you back for messing with my mind like that...

Gerry, it was my fault your Pringles got eaten...

Back at work. Tired as hell, but I have a ton of great memories and many more new friends. Thanks again Morty for letting crash on the floor by the door. Jay, you are no longer allowed to give me Jamesons. Ever. Great con all around.

Great meeting all of you! I'll do a wrap up of the Con on the blog, including pics (including Steve's epic 20 or so people game and Rigon's sweatshirt death throw if I have it), as soon as we get a break; tons of books to be made today, so all of us are pitching in today. Thanks again for making my first big Con great fun! Tim

Gary Con was a blast! Best con I've been too in years. Was great finally getting to see and game with Treebore and others from the TLG forums! Great seeing Skip Williams too. Been 20 years since we coordinated conventions for RPGA, but he hasn't changed a bit. Still a great DM and awesome adventure writer. Got him in one of my C&C games. New C&C convert? lol.

Been gone from the forums for awhile. Nice to be back. Got plenty of free C&C mods for anyone who's interested. If so, let me know. :)

"Give" is such a loose term. I wasn't the one pouring you quintiples. ;) Anyway, we'll see if you still feel that way in October!

My 400 foot fall of death was awesome, great people, great games, great beer, and great times. As for pictures my wife took a bunch so I'll try to get some up here in the next couple days.

Great to meet Tim Burns and also great to see the elephant riding Troll, miller6, Treebore, Rigon, Morty, seskis and other Crusaders at the CON.

I'm just wondering why Jay was absent so much and hanging out with hawt chicks instead of us men?? :cry:

Jay, get yer priorities straight!! :lol:

I would vote that that was exactly what he was doing. Who wants to hang around a bunch of dudes anyway? :)

Sounds like you guys had an awesome time. Now I'm sorry I missed the event. :(

Wow, it really sounds like everyone had a great time. Can't wait to see some of these epic pics. Going to try to make TrollCon and GenCon this year so maybe I will have a chance to get in on some of the Crusader fun. :)

Well . .

you are a good lookin' dude, very intelligent, funny and creative ~ so as an artiste you no doubt attract the ladies.

But, since you are jokester and a trickster, I suppose you are kidding about the marriage.

On the other hand, you are one crazy bastard - who probably did duck out of the CON to go get married!!

Well done, good sir - congrats!! :mrgreen:

He didn't get married. He was just messing with our minds. If I make Con on the Cob I vote we keel haul him a few times in the pool!

Would not someone need to bring a keel for that to work properly?

It was great for me as well. Still tough-going, bit it was great to be with gamers again. Met some folks, for sure, but my joy is always running my stuff. Didn't participate in any C&C to speak of (missed my event), but I did sit in on one of seskis' sessions for awhile. Met a few Crusaders there and chatted with a few around the Troll's table. Did want to give a shout out to Smokin'! You weren't what I expected, my man, but it was a pleasure talkin' at you!

Well. I've been to GenCon (West and Indy), Origins, even GAMA, with a host of other cons in between and now, GaryCon. Now, I just need to make a TrollCon (btw, the other biggie, DragonCon, I have no interest in, it's too big)!
