Las Vegas Gaming

Post by Count Zero » Wed Feb 25, 2009 10:44 pm

So, is there any plan to do another Vegas gaming trip? If it happens at all, please let me know.
Whenever I get confused about D&D alignment morality, I just imagine Abraham Lincoln and Mahatma Ghandi arm wrestling shirtless on the back of a killer whale.

In other words, I remember that it doesn't really make a whole lot of sense and deal with it best I can.

Hmmm... maybe I could use my Hilton Honors points to get a free room! This is an interesting proposition.

I think I'd be interested in this. At the very least, I'd be interested in hearing about the planning for this.

Can we just hang around the lobby of the Hilton wearing Spock ears?

So, now that the latest meet-up is done, shall we plan a Las Vegas meet-up?

re: neoncon in vegas, i just got this information via pm:


[quote="mike from neoncon"]
Hello Jimmy,



I came across your post about our show. I was unable to post to it for some reason. I don't want you to feel as though I am sending you spam. I'm only emailing you because I saw you guys were interested. I basically want to let you and your buddies know we have opened registration and have a promotion going right now. Check out the site [url]http://www.neoncon.com/[/url]



The early bird rates are good till the end of the month and the promo code is jimp09 to get an extra 10% off anything you get from rooms and badges to meals and drinks, through our site. The code is good till the 15th for sure though we may leave that till the end of the month as well. If you have any questions message me back or my email is [email]mike.fey@neoncon.com[/email]. Thanks for your time.

I don't know why I didn't make the connection before, but we actually saw these guys at Gamex back in May, promoting Neon-Con. In fact, I gamed with a few of them in two games. They played in my Spirit of the Fist game at OrcCon, too.



There's absolutely no way I'm going, though, seeing as how I'll have a two-week-old tax deduction by then.
