I don't think it's been discussed yet, but I think it's a fine idea. Let's do it.

Here is a good a place as any. I'll bring game munchies (things to snack on while you play) and beer.

I believe I have two friends coming, and PK mentioned bringing Redfox, and Morgan (Ellis) is hopefully still at least a maybe -- all of which means we may hit or exceed our max of 19, even if Neuro and Morgan are the only Maybes to cross over. Record numbers!

One of my friends (David), if he comes, will probably bring Baron Munchausen, which he's been dying to play ever since I showed it to him. If that's the case, it may very well be possible to have a "breakout" game for a few people, if necessary, running alongside an established timeslot. And maybe Morgan could run Spirit of the Shattered Earth, if he feels like it -- that's another no-prep game.

I assume that we are doing signups the same way as last year: first come, first served at the venue itself?

Should we discuss alternatives or just leave it be?

We were planning on doing it as usual. Sign-up sheets, first come, first served.

Why, you have other ideas?

I've got 2 maybes from my tuesday night group (that Sadohara is also in) - Mark (whom some of you have met) and Chris (whom none of you have met). 'Maybes' in the sense that we have mentioned The Hyph to them and they showed some interest, but nothing firm yet.

Anyway, sounds like we have backup games fairly well covered, but I'll try to remember to throw Og into my gaming bag just in case.

No worries. Our backup games can provide spots for 10 more people or so. I think we've got it covered like a jimmy-hat.

I am very interested but not committed, as are two of my cohorts. We will decide shortly. However, I know some of us definitely will not be able to arrive until after the first session starts (maybe 2 PM). This also means we won't get dibs on the sign-up sheet (lame). So if I'm going to go, which I may, I don't like first come, first served, since I will be last served.

Sweet! That's at least, what, three guests already?

I have one guest confirmed for a noon game, and another who's on the fence for the full day.

I'm bringing a heart-cracking but delicious hashbrown casserole for all the vegetarians in the house.

Unless they are lactose-intolerant. In which case, there will be trouble in River City.

That's the bad side. The good side is that every game is going to be awesome, so you won't really lose out.

Thank you all for holding the con, accepting me, and to those who Hosted the event. Although I came really late 1800, and to leave early 1930ish it was fun ... In Space!
Hopefully we'll all see each other more and game together in the future.

Maybe next year I will get time off for the event and bring lumpia

Hyphen-Con was, indeed, awesome this year. I had a total blast, as normal. :)

I think for next year, I'm going to work on a Torg conversion for Savage Worlds.

Thanks again Mord for the venue, and letting us try DRYH.
As usual I had a great time. I only wish that I hadn't been so late on arriving so as to have gotten to see what all the Trek fuss was about.
