I have a purely non-political question:

Is anyone going? Bbarsh? Marlith? Is anyone going to make a day of it in Columbus? Or is everyone saving up for GenCon? :)

I had not planned on going. It seems like it has gone downhill from its hayday. There is an outside chance I might stop by on Saturday just for the auction. As I recall the RP stuff is sold mostly on Saturday. If anyone is going and has a laptop and finds out the auction schedule would you mind perhaps posting it here?

I am not going to make it. I am closing out a house over the next couple days - a bit ahead of schedule. It would be just too hard to make it all work.

I'll try again for Gen Con. Maybe next year I will plan ahead a little better. I really let it sneak up on me before I got serious.


And I could've bought these damn modules off the 1$ rack!!!

Obviously since Origins got underway they blew up Acaeum for dissing them. ;>

But it's back now ::whew::

Server had a progressive meltdown starting two days ago.  By last night it was completely down.  Thankfully, nothing was lost, and all's well now.

Does anyone else think having 2 of the 3 biggest conventions (correct?) in the country in consecutive months in adjoining (only moderately populous) states is weird?

What does the East Coast or the South have for conventions anyway?


I live in the northern KY region, and have to say that Origins and GenCon are appropriately located(not just becuase they are about 2 hours away from my house each).  This region is within one day's drive (600 highway miles) from half the country's population.  That aside, I did not have quite the enjoyable time I was hoping to at Origins, almost no new RPGs to be found this year and the only decent "old" game I found was SLUGS (#73 of 200, signed) for 7 bucks.  Hoping GenCon will be better.
