YAAAAAAAARRRRRRRR!!!!!!!

Spent the weekend getting some good prep done for my games. Actually have an idea to run past the hivemind once I get a chance to write it up . . .

Nearly done with editing TTS#3, and working on redrawing some maps of the Castle!  Looking forward to seeing everyone :D

Good news! I managed to weasel out of my work obligation, so I should be able to attend.

Eh... I spoke too soon! Part of my job is supporting transactions that I don’t get much notice of, and a few of those arose over the past few days and created a conflict for this week. So, sorry for the head fake earlier and for people who had been expecting an off-grid game, but I can’t make it. Again, apologies. Have fun and post some good pics!

Well dang!  Sorry to hear that a period of fun, relaxing, activity has been replaced with work.

Re: Gary Con X (2018)

Not to pile on but I just got some work meetings for the Monday afterwards that I have no choice but to make. So I'm now going to have to head home after my SL game ends at 2pm and I won't be able to run Descent into Krimmea Sunday night. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/depressed.png

Iron, DMAngelo and Stahlnee, my apologies for having to cancel on you. I wasn't expecting these meetings with these particular folks but when these types set something, I need to make it.

My heart can't take this constant toying with. Even monsters cry, Chainsaw.

We'll miss you!

We shall endeavor to tip a glass for you Chainsaw!

Ar'Parazon, at least you are going to be there for the best parts!

Who's running off grid games? I need to fill the foolsgrave slot on Friday and/or saturday night!

Re: Gary Con X (2018)

I spent three hours on the phone with Delta to move our flight from Wed. morning to Tue night because a foot of snow is coming our way here in the metropole. What a shitshow. If anyone's staying at the airport hotel tomorrow night, shout.

I'm heading out from northern Virginia at 4am tomorrow with some peeps. See y'all when I get there. I'll be the nerd with the Washington Capitals hoodie on. 

Anyone going to Mentzer's par-tay?

Re: Gary Con X (2018)

My ride from Milwaukee to Lake Geneva had to switch which days he's flying in, so I'm looking to carpool.  Anyone else getting into Milwaukee around 1:30pm Wednesday have an extra seat available?

Re: Gary Con X (2018)

Well... Gary con is over. What a blast. I was able to reconnect with old friends, make a lot of new one, and just enjoy those that are drawn to this magnificent game system! I am convinced that the nicest people in gaming play AS&SH. Truly. 

I ran two slots of Charnel Crypt of the Sightless Serpent (an original adventure published by Ghul, though heavily modified by me.) Once on Friday night and once on Saturday. Both groups did well, and looked to be having a good time. I am very appreciative of all of those guys and girl who took a chance to play in my first Con events ever. I was nervous as all hell, when I found out that both of my games had sold out at the diamond, platinum and gold levels. Truely suprised and humbled. 

I would like to take a moment to thank each of the groups who participated. In Fridays game; Dale E, Keith and Bjorn N, Thomas C, Michael Y and Burl Z. I think only Michael said he had played Hyperborea once before, though several of them had already purchased one version or the other. This group did a great job, their roleplaying and interactions with eachother were great to watch and experience. They chose to follow clues to the main crypt area, but when encountering the crypt guardian they all found themselves in a petrified position.

The second group had me more nervous once I found out who all was going to be in it. Jeff S, Jay, Em, Michael S, Erik, and Philippe. Too this group found the signs to the main crypt entrance and made it into the main vaults. They bypassed the crypt guardian, and ended up getting caught up in what Ar'Pharazon called "Del's Tomb of Horrors". I think I kept them all on their feet, and even though they didnt have much combat I had them intrigued the whole time. (I shall change that in the scenario for the next time I run it...there needs to be at least one or two more combat encounters.) I think our berserker was a bit anxious to beat on something, but never really got the chance too. This group fought their way through every trick and trap, losing their guide to a crushing trap with the help of the Shaman, and their pyromancer to a series of unfortunate traps. All in all I think they all had a good time. 

I hope everyone enjoyed playing in Hyperborea with me. I most certainly enjoyed meeting everyone who played in my games. 

My only regret of the con was that I didnt get to play in more games with my old friends. I shall endeavor to change that at future cons. 

Thank you to everyone from these forums for making Gary Con X a very good con for me!

Sounds like you had a great time with your first Convention games!!  That second group is very intimidating!  Some of the BEST players ever as they will find ways to take on an adventure that one would never think of!

I had a good time, and clearly everyone was enjoying themselves, so thanks again for running it. You did a great job and I must compliment you on your props. You've upped the ante for all of us who run games!
And, as always, it was great to see you again Del.

Re: Gary Con X (2018)

I'd like to thank everyone who ran games that I played in. I had a fantastic time and really enjoyed myself. I'd also like to thank those who played in my games, I am humbled that mine all sold out and everyone actually showed up! It looked like everyone was having a good time, which is my goal when I run stuff. 

Most of all, thanks to Ghul for creating and supporting a kick ass game. Even telling new players about Hyperborea and directing them to your booth is a blast!

Tom and Michael were in my game on Thu. and were great. I'll reach out to them and point them to the forum because they were exactly the kind of player we should be recruiting: imaginative, fun, ready to rock and/or roll. They were a lot of fun.

I completely agree handy! Even when their session of mine only lasted 2.45 hours of the four hour slot they were gracious and good about it. I felt bad for turning that whole group to stone....
