Re: Gary Con IX (2017)

With event registration looming on Weds (gold) and Sat (silver), here's my schedule this year. These are all games I'm running.

Weds evening - Foolsgrave off-grid (full: Handy [and crew], Cloak n' Dagger, Ancalagon)

Thurs 2-6PM - Corpse Creek (full)
Thurs evening - Foolsgrave off-grid (full: JoeMac and crew [3], capitalbill, ligedog, francisca)

Fri 2-6PM - Corpse Creek (full)
Fri evening - Foolsgrave off-grid (full: gizmo, capitalbill, ligedog, Ernesto, Josh, Del)

Sat 10-2PM - Crystal Point (full)
Sat 8PM - Foolsgrave (full)

I'm planning on keeping my schedule open on Weds, Thurs and Fri nights 8PM+ for anyone who wants to explore my Foolsgrave megadungeon off-grid (Sat night it's an on-grid event). Happy to run it for folks until we run out of beer or pass out. My goal with Foolsgrave is that it exists as a persistent environment that can be revisited again and again by your same PC (if he can stay alive!). I'm also considering running it online once a month much later this year. Again, totally persistent and continuous from session to session whether at Gary Con, NTRPG Con or online.

Re: Gary Con IX (2017)

As part of my data munging ways I've calculated the seats remaining for each GM at Gary Con. Here are the Hyperborea GMs seat utility as of 9:21 PM EST, January 18, 2017:

Chainsaw : 1 of 23 seats, 4.35%
ligedog : 15 of 25 seats, 60.00%
Eric Petersen : 29 of 41 seats, 70.73%
Ghul  : 3 of 18 seats, 16.67%
Handy  : 1 of 12 seats, 8.33%
Mabon  : 11 of 24 seats, 45.83%
Francisca : 13 of 18 seats, 72.22%
WSmith : 11 of 18 seats, 61.11%

I think that is everyone, if not let me know.


What? Me worry?

Re: Gary Con IX (2017)

mabon,

I'm with you waiting for silver. My hope is to get into at least one Chainsaw game, one Ghul game, and one Handy game. I think I'm $h*t out of luck on the Ghul and Handy games, but hope that Chains lets me in one of his!

If I screw it up like I did last year I may be begging to sit and watch!

I bet there will be chairs enough around on Sunday that you can get in my noon game then even if it's filled up.

My Thurs/Fri Foolsgrave megadungeon game is "off grid" and has seats open now both nights. Depending on how Sat goes for you, that might be your best option. If you want in now, let me know and I'll pencil it in.

I appreciate that but I'm leaving on Sunday this year!

If you can't get one of those I would love to have you in one of mine!  Getting into one of Ghul's is like wining the lottery. Good luck!

Re: Gary Con IX (2017)

Chainsaw,
Pencil me in for sat night. What time? Where? I'll let you know if I'm in or not depending on what happens once silver opens up. 
Hey maybe we need a Garycon thread for off grid games?

Thanks

Mabon, 
Thanks, I'll take a look at your events. See if I can snag a game with you.

Hey man. I think I miscommunicated. I only have room in my Thursday and Friday evening off-grid games at this point. So, if you can't get into any other games on those nights when you register on Saturday, let me know. Love to have you join us!

These games will probably start around 8ish at a location to be determined. We will try to find a relatively quiet spot somewhere. PM me your phone number.

Re: Gary Con IX (2017)

Handy, 

I'll keep sunday in mind, but depending on how stressed the wife is (she will be all weekend with our two boys at Timber Ridge Waterpark) I am betting she'll want to leave by noon. Thanks tho.

I'll put this out here too, I am setting up with Jeff at his booth most hours during the day, all weekend. Stop by, chat with me and Jeff, I'll have some originals available to peruse as well. Look forward to seeing you all there.

Wow, only 6/130 seats left in Hyperborea games! Awesome reception!

So, now that the dust has settled, what's everyone's schedule look like?
