Brought a camera for the 1st couple of years, I just don't take enough pictures so have stopped doing that. Maybe use my cell phone, but no promises.

http://www.dragonsfoot.org/forums/viewtopic.php?t=19206


Okay so far I have 12 to pick up (guess Goodman Games is my first stop), so hopefully they have them then and not 'coming on a UPS truck be here whenever..'

To answer some questions:
No need to send money, I have enough funds or ability to pay as there are plenty of ATMs around if they don't take a credit card.

Shall work out details later for payment/shipping

Probably less then 24 hours to get a request for one of these in.

Sorry, not being a frequent forumer either here or anywhere else, I can't figure this one out.

Oops- just found it on a marvelous site for dummies like me.

Thanks for the answers

Late word: We'll have a PVQ. No idea yet which printing. And two other OCE's, for what it's worth. No sign of Tamo, Inver, or Tsoj, but you never can tell. Two rounds of original Needle tourneys tho (prepubs); they're pretty rare. (Betcha Stratochamp gets 'em...)

Woodburning kit, Model Kits, CrossStitch, and Record Albums, eh? You wacky guys... ;> (Got any open-mouth Dragon Toilet Seats, or 3e toilet paper?)

In addition to the Big Beautiful Burnt Brothers Banner we'll also have 3 Dealer Room banners from GenCon's last year in Milwaukee, the ones with Aisle numbers (100, 200, 300, etc). Not sure which numbers, tho. Last year's going rate (we had 3 then too) was $100-125 each. You DO need a two-story venue to display them, and they weigh at least 20 pounds, industrial-quality vinyl. (Maybe you UK folks should place proxies; we Yanks are all sure that you live in castles.)

Around here, the words "3e toilet paper" are interchangable with "Pages torn from a 3e rulebook of choice"
Rimshot!!

Gee, MikeTheBod, I thought you'd politely point out that "3e toilet paper" is redundant...

Hmm, that line IS funnier. Must be slipping....I'll be glad when GenCon is over, the thought of you guys having so much fun this weekend is distracting me....
