Getting Ready for the Con

Tomorrow I leave for Con on the Cob.  Three days of gaming.  This will be my longest time gaming since I used to do marathon gaming sessions when I was a kid.  Remember those all nighters?  I do.  I remember never having money for anything to eat and I would be starving by the time I got home a day and half later. 

This time around most of the Monday night crew will be there.  +Rob Conley+Ken H , +Chris C. and +Daniel McEntee.  It'll be good to game with the guys in person.  I know we are signed up for one game Rob is running and then I'll be running a Esoterrorist game for the guys on the off time.  I think it'll be fun.  The anti-social bastard that I can become, doesn't seem to be rearing its head so I should be good.

Here are some of the things I changed from last year when I went to the con.
  • Made a loose gaming schedule.  No two, 4-hour sessions in a row.  I don't have the stamina to concentrate that long.  I want to be able to kickback and BS with the guys also.  And while I don't mind reliving a little of the marathon session, I don't want to relive the not eating for 12-hours. 
  • As I said above, run my own game.  GM for live and in person people.  Holy crap on a cracker Batman what a novel fucking concept.  However, I'm not sure how everyone's schedule will jive, but we'll figure it out.
  • Bringing something with me so I can take some picture, hell, maybe do a video.  I'll take along a tablet.  My wife's tablet in which she has already got over one orientation with me on how to use it....a second orientation is schedule for tonight because I goofed around too much for the first one.  
  • Play new games or games I've had very little chance to play.
  • Don't get sick!
 Well I've got about 15-hours worth of work to fit into the next 8-hours so I better get at it.

  1. "anti-social bastard"--as your roommate for the con, I find that a bit unsettling.

    I will wear something that matches the hotel dumpster, just in case you need to dispose of my corpse.

    1. Good thinking. I think I have a tarp that matches also.

  2. You need to hustle it up, man. I'm headed out to the con a day later than you and I've already got half my stuff packed. :)

    1. As long as you are wearing your official wife uniform it'll be fine.

    1. Yeah, you are DMing quite a few events along with playing in them. Dust off your Kirby hand.

  5. Tomorrow? TOMORROW?!? I'm in my room RIGHT NOW. (I always like to get in the day before then hit the ground running the first hour of that first day.)

  6. Shucks -- a con about 10 minutes from me and I won't be there. Maybe next year.
    Say hi to Bob (Light Trading Co., sells dice and knew Tom Moldvay pretty well), and buy some of his dice.

    1. Very cool. If I remember this. Which I am sure I'll remember part of it, but not all of it.

  7. Wish I could be there. Sigh. Have some additional fun on my behalf, eh?
