Glad to hear you found a couple spots, Vlad. Also glad to hear GenCon will be what it's supposed to be -- a break from all the irritations and responsibilities of bein' a grown-up, even if just for a few days it's nice to play army men and cops-and-robbers again.

Who else is planning on the Scramble, on Saturday? We wanna coordinate, maybe show up with a whole crew, ready to go (instead of being randomly grouped up)? I've got a Technomancer ready to go, costume's almost all set, etc, etc. He's...ah...interesting, but effective enough. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/rotfl.gif)

I will be at Gen Con as usual. I first attended Gen Con in Milwaukee in 2001, as a last minute substitute for someone else who couldn't go. I started running Shadowrun at Gen Con in 2003, and have run every year since. This year, I will be running an adventure I wrote called Combat Biking Rules! Dropkick's Return to the Arena. I will be playing several Missions, as well as some other game systems I am interested in.

Grendel: my boyfriend and I game at home with Red Jack and LadyJack, and we would like to play in your Wednesday pickup game, if possible. We will arrive by noon on Wednesday. I already have Code Red on the shopping list!

As far as where to game, didn't Gen Con provide some open gaming table space last year?

Plenty of time. Should we all meet you at the station? We could hire some Hawai'ian/Polynesian gals to flop leis around your neck and offer you boat drinks with lots of rum and little umbrellas.

I am looking forward to meeting you after all these years of your smart ass comments ... sarcasm witty responses on the forums.

Seriously, if you need transport, I can probably arrange it for you. I am more or less a former Indy native. Born and raised in Kokomo, 45 miles north of Indy and lived there all my life until about 5 years ago. Most of my best friends migrated to Indy years ago. And while I now live in Kansas, I am staying locally with old HS chummers the week of Gencon. (Read: Unabashedly flopping at their doss to sleep and shower for 6 days.) I'll have my own wheels as I am driving up in the Durango.

I pretty much have the Home turf quality... well, at least Knowledge Skill: Indy Locations 2(Runner hangouts +2) (IMG:style_emoticons/default/wink.gif)

"Smart Assed Bastard"

By Canadian standards, I'm a very rude asshole. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif)

EDIT: By ONTARIAN standards, I'm a very rude asshole. I have a 40% survival chance in New York City according to some folks. Damned high for Canadians. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/wink.gif)

All right, for the Wednesday night pick-up game here is what I'm proposing. The Meet & Greet goes down at 2000. We'll start the game at 2100 at some appropriate location adjacent to where the Meet & Greet is happening. This should allow us to at least participate in a little bit of the socialization before we immerse ourselves once more in the Sixth World. The game will be non-missions, SR4A rules, bring your own character with a karma cap of 100. We'll run for four hours or however long it takes me to kill everyone. Right now I've got six in the game: Redjack, Ladyjack, Alicia + boyfriend, 3, and Vellie. I've got room for two more, first come, first served. Let me know here or via PM if you want a seat at the table. Almost time to gear up and get going!

See the M&G trhead. We're still working on it, and Gen Con is giving us the run around. The default will be Claddagh once more if we can't get an official meet spot.

Just a heads up. the What's up With Shadowrun? Seminar on Friday at Noon will not only feature Jason Hardy, Peter Andrew, and myself talking upcoming books, but we will also have reps for both Harebrained Schemes (For Shadowrun Returns) and Cliffhanger productions (Shadowrun Online). If you have questions or want the lowdown on what's coming, you may want to come check this out (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

They can't even give you an updated ETA? Just "yeah, we're going slower now, you'll get there eventually" type of thing? Yikes.

Good luck, man. I look forward to runnin' into ya.

2-5 hours. They can't tell any longer until the work crews get to the affected rails.

This is to be expected in extreme weather, and is common in Canada (Although more due to freezing/thawing issues) and I'm not surprised at the lack of a better ETA.

Family and friends worked for the rail lines back home, so I got a good idea what's going down.

All packed up, and ready to go. Bringing startlingly little gaming stuff this year (just trusting my Kindle to do the heavy lifting where game books are concerned), and that feels kind of weird.

See a bunch of ya right around this time tomorrow!

Quick update. We're now scheduled from 4 to 8. Which is weird, and sucks. Apparently, it's no longer open gaming area. So, umm. Yeah. Sucks. So 4 to 8, then from 8 on at Claddagh.

At our hotel in Indy. Tomorrow the wind up begins as gamers take over this town. Nothing cooler than walking downtown (as will happen starting tomorrow) and passing knights, fairies, anime girls, elves, orks, robots, and the rabble that are gamers!

Packed and ready to go. Forecast says hot tomorrow, hotter with the possibility of a severe thunderstorm Thursday, and then mild temps the rest of the con. With a 70% chance of APDS ammo.

Yeah, I know it's the 2070's but that is depressing.
