Yeah. Mrlost and Savage Slacker have both reported to me that they're sadly unable to attend Hyphen-Con this year. Of course, the troublesome part of that is that they're both scheduled to run games.

So! I've already contacted ekomega about stepping up to the plate to run his Eberron game in place of "The Programmer of OZZ Sector." But what will take the place of "The Savage Sands of Set"? Good question!

I can tell you one thing, though: We're not having another poll for it.

Also, everyone remember to bring your used games you don't want anymore. Last year a lot of people brought them and we had lots of fun exchanging games.

Especially if you have a crap-ton of the same Heavy Gear supplement -- bring 'em all!

I really want to go to Hyphen con but I really shouldn't because I'll be missing my GIS classes which are all on the weekend and are the whole reason I moved up to San Bernardino. Ugh. Its extra frustrating because I really want to run the scenario and I'm doing well in the class. But I feel irresponsible about it.

Sorry, that I keep waffling on the issue I've been very deprived of gaming until recently.

EDIT expect me to waffle on this back and forth

Waffling complete. I'm coming with Devlin...

Nope -- we're back up to eight games, counting the Paranoia game and ekomega's D&D game.

Unless I'm misunderstanding you, which is a distinct possibility.

Well, I really think that Danger Patrol will work better with 4 players, but I can do 6 if there's a need.

Four or five. Four's ideal, but I wouldn't turn away a fifth.

If a sixth player shows up, though? Fuck you, sixth person.

Take that, laws of probability! (or did you win because it all evened out in the end? whatever).

Really glad you guys came down -- you were 40% of the reason why that Leftovers game was as fun as it was.

Glad you had a good time! It was great that you came down, unlike last year when you wimped out. Sorry I didn't get to play in your Dresden Files game, but that's the way the scheduling cookie crumbles, I guess.

Plus, your presence there reinforced the idea that, from my perspective, you exist only in the context of conventions.
