Re: Gary Con IX (2017)

I've updated my web app with event catalog data as of 10am EST (January 09, 2016).

http://gizmomathboy.com/

username: gary
password: gygax

If you want an account on it let me know and I'll create it. Having an account will let you save your filters/searches from session to session. You can save them in the gary account but anyone else can see it/f*** with it.


What? Me worry?

Re: Gary Con IX (2017)

Reposting this to p. 5 just in case . . .

So I spent a few hours yesterday working on the next (pre)generation of pregens for my games this year. Figured the last batch had done yeoman's work already! I thought I might a request submit to the hivemind for help with images to paste onto the character sheets (I'm using Maezar's Sheet of Wondrous Automation). So if anyone can post a link to publicly accessible images that fit any of these, I'd appreciate it! (Will update once I do the cleric and thief subclasses, too):

Keltic barbarian (male)
Esquimmeaux berserker (female)
Atlantean cleric (m)
Kimmerian warlock (death soldier) (f)
Ixian fighter (f)
Viking warlock (fire lord) (f)
Hyperborean pyromancer (m)
Common illusionist (f)
Kimmerian magician (m)
Ixian necromancer (m)
Atlantean ranger (f)
Amazon thief (f)
Pict warlock (m)
Esquimmeaux witch (m)

Or a decent search engine for same?

Thanks!

Re: Gary Con IX (2017)

This is your clever way to get Jeff to commission more art, right? Almost as if turning Waifs of the Boreas into a full-fledged supplement?

If we can summon BLACKADDER, he has some kind of generator that does this...

Re: Gary Con IX (2017)

Wish I could help, but I'm not doing so great at the moment.  More pain and new medications.  Sorry. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/sad.png

If you want to make your own, I recommend HeroMachine3.  It's free and fairly flexible.

Thanks BA23! You helped me out a couple of years ago. I didn't want to bother you again, esp. with your back troubles. Will check out the machine.

Gizmo, man, there are a lot of 5e and PF events these days! What a world.

Yeah most of them are two hour events but I have to wonder how they get the number of folks to GM that they did.  It is pretty cool the showing that ASSH made.

They're "organized play" to a great extent, yes? I bet WotC subsidizes.

I suppose I should post my data over here as well.

001: Adventurer's League GM           : 414
002: Steve Mulhern                    : 64
003: Nicole Baker                     : 56
004: Alex Clark                       : 44

I think Thomas Valley is the AL host nominally.

#2 is the PFS stuff, #3 is Dragon Wars of Trayth, #4 is Artemis.

I probably should figure out a way to break out PFS and AL stuff from those numbers to see how many "non-organized play" events there are for each system.
