Time is getting close, Now less than 2 weeks away. Note I still have openings for some of my games. On a second note, there seem to be some issues with the Tabletop.Events site showing that though some events have no tickets taken, they also show no tickets available I notified the Totalcon managers about it.

Bob, FWIW, I cancelled two of my events for low interest. (I wanted the one or two players to have a chance to sign up for something else.) Those games show 6/6 tickets available, but you can’t get one. That may be what you’re seeing.

I am very much looking forward to meeting some of the folks from the forum at Total Con! Only a couple of days away!

Looking forward to seeing everyone also. Went out and had to buy a printer to make sure I have all my handouts ready, The four sessions are going to have the same pregens, and I'm going to have the players track the usage of their items and anything they gain and use the characters through all four sessions as if they were being run by the same players. Thursday they will be given names, and sex, (ethnicities and classes are already assigned). All their items have been gone over and each has a certain number of scrolls and potions to last all four sessions.

It was suggested to me by one of the Knights of Next Tuesday (My cousin) that he had played a couple of games where the GM did something like this and it went over extremely well.  I'm going to have 8 players at each session, so it will take a bit of me being a traffic cop to make sure everyone has fun. https://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/cute.png

Wait I took that pic! I really enjoyed playing Brindle the Pict Druid!  Total Con was a blast.

Total Con is definitely on the list for next year! I was able to run 4 ASSH games and play in two (Thanks Bob!). The Saturday morning cartoons were awesome and the D&D cartoon game was great. Alex Jackl presented a gms masters class that had a ton of practical takeaways.  Good times.

Very nice...are the black t-shirts with the red two-headed serpent a North Wind Adventures item?

Ah, looks similar to the drawing on the AS&SH character sheet, around the character portrait.
