Who's ready for Gen Con?

I'm in the process of getting ready for Gen Con. It's shaping up to be a busy weekend of reading, picking out assorted minis for my games, and other preparations for the trip on Wednesday. Oh, and I plan on being over at Scotty's for some games before jumping into module running.

By the way, this may be my first time DMing at Gen Con for Pathfinder, I have judged previously for LFR. And with my experience with the old Living Greyhawk days, I am used to manic prep work before a convention.

I just downloaded the special, and now I have to add "buy new color ink cartridge" to my list of things to do this weekend. *sigh*

I am a Tier 1 GM and this is my first GenCon. Am I supposed to receive my badge in the mail or will I be picking it up at the con? My GenCon account says I have a GM badge, is that badge also going to get me into the Con or just the Paizo games I am running?

You'll pick your badge up from Paizo HQ.

Are you sure? Mike said he was providing three different flip-mats for the special which you get to keep afterwards.

Okay, but is that badge also my ticket into GenCon or just for Paizo events?

Scarab Sages ***

It's your GenCon pass. You will have to purchase tickets for events that you aren't running.

How big are the tables at gencon? I'm building terrain for Storval Stairs and it wants .... some significant space.

They are 6 foot round tables I think.

You had the weekend to prepare and you're building terrain?! You've got more guts that I do. ;)

No, I have a theater major wife who likes playing with foam core. She'll be working HQ most of the weekend....

I think I have worked out the logistics of making a 3d map that'll feel and play "right". Making it work for *transport* is the interesting part... and we might not finish it before we leave tomorrow, since I would only need it for Thursday. :/

Golden Serpent just needs some accessories built.

I see you're an [OF] GM for Thursday evening when I'm playing this. Hoping for a lot of players :-)

Add in some errie banjo music and you got it nailed. :)

Gencon... tomorrow! Excited but also a little stressed. I think it's almost less stressful going by yourself instead of organizing a large group. Praying that the events will go great and don't suck.

Answer: Yes

Clint with probably sleep with his cheeks clenched, because "those aren't pillows".

Hehehe. I'm roughly 90 minutes away from hitting the road at this point. I'm honestly happier to be getting away from home for the weekend.

Scarab Sages ***

Lucky you. We'll be leaving in the morning and should be there around 5 PM Indy time. Just enough time to get checked in and ready to go to Scotty's.

This. My last Gen Con was 31 years ago, I'm going to go out on a limb here and assume it's changed a bit.

about to pack in the laptop and cpap, then the last map bits (I went with a much SIMPLER version of the map for 4-04, but we are custom tiling for it to skip packing my megamat and map markers, and have the act 3 map tiles to back and cut), then the road!

yep, only six hours behind schedule. sigh.

Sovereign Court ***** RPG Venture-Captain, Florida—Clearwater aka Magical_Beast

Woke up early today excited. Need to get ink to print last faction missions and final packing. Never enough time for prep.
In Indy in less than 7 hours!
