I hope the collectable auction is still Friday night!! I actually go to Gencon to play games and socialize with people.  Spending all day waiting for the 5-10 items I want to go up for auction just won't happen for me.  If the collectable portion is not scheduled then I can't participate :?

The core question to me is "what's a Collectible"? If someone decides that all the OD&D supplements are Semi-, they'll be sprinkled in... and you won't find any Sup2 Blackmoors in the evening.

No word on any of that as yet. :/

I read the post from the link finally.

So Larry is running the auction now?

Hopefully they will ask Frank to be an auctioneer. I see that Tom will still be auctioning the train games so as far as I'm concerned it would be detrimental to the auction if Frank isn't there for at least the "collectible" auctions. Some people(myself included) may think twice about putting items in the aution if the knowledgeable auctioneers aren't going to be involved.

Well, SO far -- think twice, then.

As yet we have very little information... more as they dribble it out I guess.

When Auction God posted that he and Jon Huston were being considered to run it, Jeannette (GenCon Events manager) felt it necessary to clarify that they were in negotiations and that GenCon would post when something was Official.

God (and Jane Zoet) are posting some details about major changes (all to benefit the auction staff -- fewer hours, no set slots, no Sunday; nothing to help the attendees afaik). But GenCon has not posted anything about the auction as yet, so none of that is official.

So we all wait. :/

Update.

I've had a good phone chat with Jon Huston, and we're tentatively go/green for me to come and auctioneer, primarily collectibles.

Although the GenCon board has not yet assembled its fecal output, and has claimed that Jon and "Bruce Campbell" are running the auction (LOL), Jon and Bruce Carson do seem to be in charge, with Larry Zoet (a good man) as lead auctioneer and head of sales.

How does one go about being involved in the auction if one is not actually at GenCon? I mean, if I were to bid on something. Is it possible?


Those who can, don't. Those who should not, do.

As I'm no longer part of management, you'll have to contact Acaeum member renvhoek for details of that sort.

Hey!

Who's going to GenCon and who can pick up whatever Dungeon Crawl Classic module Goodman is going to have for me?   (I'm paying, naturally.)

I claw at my wrists whenever I think about not asking Blackmoor to get me one last year.  :cry:

Badmike and I are going.  But I havent seen anything stating that Goodman is going to have a special release this year.  I have heard rumors that they will be releasing DCC 51 Castle Whiterock at GenCon but it is just rumor so far.  And if they do release it I doubt we will be able to pick up any extras since they are retailing for $100.  8O

Over on the Goodman Games boards they've mentioned that they'll have some copies of the Free RPG Day Dungeon Crawl Classic at their Gen Con booth.  A second chance for people who missed it on Free RPG Day, perhaps?

Well if I can get permission I'll try and grab any for those that can't make it. I hope to get a copy of the DCC #51.5 as I missed out from Noble Knight.
As for the box set, I think I'll buy it online...
