Awesome time everyone. We had record attendance and games this year. And the trades actually worked this time around!

Had a blast in both games. Thank you Mord for running OD&D and making it a lot of fun. I feel like I've earned a merit badge for both being TPKed and grognard gaming.

And thanks to Cthulhu for running Transhuman Space. He came up with some brilliant character concepts (the uplifted octopus great) , made GURPS fun, and kept the game interesting.

My only regret was not getting to play in the other games. Looking forward to next year.

That was hilarious


No way. It was totally Jimmy Corrigan's fault.

Maybe we can follow this up with a meet up @ SDCC or go to a Padres Game together.

There have been bonfire meet-ups in the past at Fiesta Island. They usually happen late summer. Look for it!

Incidentally, I posted all the pictures I took on my Facebook page. I will work on getting them shrunk down for posting here, but in the meantime, if you're not friends with me on Facebook yet, why the fuck not?!?

Y'know what's bullshit? Facebook won't let me tag the pictures of the finger puppets. Bullshit!

What's wrong with that?:mrgreen:

Wait, wait, there are also some women on it, gay men, and some nerds. Much better than Facebook's demographic, musicians excepted, obviously.

EDIT: I'm just bummed my digital camera is teh suck, otherwise I'd totally post picts of my hella hot new outfits like 24/7, dudette. NeoRetro Edwardian is so in right now! OMG can you believe it?

Congratulations, you passed your turing test. I do have a FB account, but not in my name and with no personal info. I think that kind of broad info sharing is... creepy.

I don't know what any of this means.

And proves my point to Jimmy Corrigan about playing anything related to Star Trek.

I've been told I'm very human like, so that's a relief.

(oh, BTW, I ran into your facebook page before, but thought you never went so didn't add you as a friend, should I rectify that?)

pay no mind to him, jalu3. it's an inside joke of sorts between sadohara and i. sadohara has an irrational fear of games with franchised or otherwise licensed setting material (except for amber, for some unknowable reason), especially sci-fi. he's a weirdy.
