Meh, I'm mostly coming for the socialization, so I have no qualms about what I really play.

Damn that was freaking awesome!

My only regret was not getting to play in Jimmy's Planescape game.

Yep, good times. I had a ball in all the games I played in, and there was a noticeable crescendo of craziness as the day went on. Etherscope was an interesting, All Flesh Must Be Eaten was wacky fun, and InSpectres was the final nail in the insanity coffin. Thanks to Mord, Mr. Lost, and Cczernia for running and Winter and Neuro for hosting. Well worth the drive!

That was great! Jimmy Corrigan, Mr. Lost and Cczernia ran some really fun azz game.
My high light Short Synopsis of each game:
Bounty Hunter Alternity
1. Gotetsu running after everything he sees and shooting it
2. It be came obvious that the game was a metaphor for the guy that towed his car. Slave labor, Azzhole crochety old fart who wont let us park, avoids talking reason and lil' bugger runs when we bring our lawyer Blooth to settle things.
3. I got to play with Brian and experience his extreme rolling...I'm not sure I got to see him roll any 2 thru 19 on a D20. It was either bitching or Catastrophic.

AFMBE- Geriatrics a go go
1. Devlin played A deaf entertainer singing Kareoke(sp?) to the grateful dead. I got to play a 7 year old girl, who's allergic to cats(wow that was a stretch), visiting my 90 year old grandmother Neuro on dialysis who is more homicidal than the zombies. Wintermute was a one legged smack talking retired general who apparently keeps a loaded 10 lbs M-1 Garand in his room for such an occassion. Oh and best of all Brian was a semi-retired $10 ho.
Obviously fun times ensued.
2. Ummm...really, where should I start
3. I'm laughing too hard to write

Inspectre- The game that almost was not
1. Same people that played AFMBE, just add Ccernia as a faux GM. I mean, really the game could ALMOST play without a GM. So now we have the guy, Mr. Lost, who just ran the AFMBE as a player now saying "Juran Juran." Devlin is passive-aggressive and worried about the plot making sense because really he wants the madness to end. Wintermute has gambling issues and gives birth to aliens. Neuro and Brian characters (Forever known as Bob Lob-blob) ditch their kid at the office with a box of pizza to fend for herself. I'm playing a guy that just laughs thru out.
2. Wintermute can make sense out of anything...really he can
3. Now I know I play really weird and sometimes irritating characters but I obviously took a back seat tonight. I was laughing so hard I couldn't keep a thought straight

The movie Gamer's was cool afterwards

Thank you for hosting Neuro and Wintermute!

Thank you all so much for coming to the meet. I had a lovely time. It was wonderful to see everyone. I haven't laughed so hard in ages. Thanks, too, for being so tidy. I can hardly tell you were all here, except there are all these leftovers. I'd propose we do round 2 if it weren't for an icky stats midterm in three days and that I expect six different races of aliens to converge on the planet to destroy it in something like 10 more hours. I, personally, welcome our new alien overlords, particularly Juran Juran.

Thanks to Winter and Neuro for hosting, and to JC for running a couple of kick-ass games!

It was good to see you all, and great to meet a few new people.

And thanks for sharing my B&T, Mord. As much as I wanted it, my body probably wasn't going to be able to handle it! :cheers:

We missed you SM. :lol:

It was great. Had too much fun. I'm still laughing over the InSpectres game. How often does it happen when the GM has no idea what is going on.

Planescape and Etherscope were a ton of fun, too. I love to share... more I love it when people share with me.

Wintermute & cczernia at the same time: Yes we do!

I'm just looking forward to that Saints vs the Redsocks game :mrgreen:

Much craziness and good times ensued.

Favorite moments:

* Stardrive: When our group tried to explain that we were there to beat down a rude hick, not get the slaves in trouble with same. Language barrier present, so we just played some audio of the dude and pointed our guns menacingly ;) They got the idea and gave direction (via pointing) post-haste.

* Planescape: "Do we know what these strange spell focus crystals are for? Nope, but there's like 10,000 of them, so let's have the villagers rake them up. What do we do with them afterwards? Eh, we take em with us in case we can screw over those guys we hate!" :mrgreen:

It was nice to meet those of you I hadn't - good to put a face with a name. Mr Lost gets the door prize for the 'resembles avatar the most' category.
