And I like the Dayton area, but that's probably because I work on the Air Base and don't have to put up with the local job market. Hey, are you an engineer or a med tech? Cause the Air Force always has engineer and med tech jobs for civilians around here.

Why do I have a feeling that the only thing that bothered you more than the pain and discomfort was the unwanted attention from some people?

I have suffered huge burnout as a GM for home games. I finally just refused to GM for long periods of time so I could recharge the batteries. Currently the only GMing I do is for Society play because I've lucked into a plethora of home games I can play in. Maybe in a few more years I'll rebuild my home campaign, but for now I much prefer to be a player at home.
And yet I keep buying all the stuff I need to GM. Cause world building is its own fun.
Yeah, I'll agree that you're lucky as all hell Gaberlunzie. The few LGBTQA gaming friends that I have I found out they weren't straight years later. We were all so damned scared to admit we weren't hetero that none of us even realized we had friends that we could relate too. Now we're scattered all across the globe.
It was the '80s and admitting you weren't hetro cis was a social death sentence.
I turned 50 this year and the maturity range of my characters varies from a young adult Ifrit who is barely mature enough to be adventuring with his human counterparts to a venerable gnome who probably should be retired but just won't quit. I design a character concept and fit the age to that character.
I would say that more of my characters are teen to twenty something (or the equivalent) than any other group; but they certainly cover the entire gambit of age groups even now.
Monocle, my son would love you. He's a huge fan of that series.

Liz, I would be first in line to play in this one. Loved Council, love the struggle of being a tiefling in a well run game.

Mr. Keaton? Interesting. I guess that makes me Bat-Man. :)
Glad to hear you will be moving to the Dayton area next year. I manage PFS games at the Bookery game store near the base, and work on base in Area A. Look forward to meeting you eventually.
Okay, I wasn't there in 2012. My wife was thought, and running Are you a Werewolf all night.
And I am not the werewolf either, though I'm still not sure about Liz.
What year was that? I helped run Werewolf last year and the year before; working the midnight to 4 AM shift (which never ended before 5 or 5:30).

I will try to bring other items for snacks and stuff. I also have a friend who used to play pfs that usually bakes cookies and other treats to sell at conventions for charities. I could try getting some from her before leaving.
I also had my snack packed to have at my table. The one complaint I would have is the lack of a break between morning and afternoon slots. But even that was managable.
UDS, as somebody that can only afford GenCon as a volunteer I can honestly say that I had a blast this year. Its well worth it.
Something else to know. Outside the specials paizo tries to limit how many senarios you run so that you don't burn out preping 7 to 8 scenarios. I ran three specials and one other scenario as a tier 1 GM this year; and yeah that was rough but I made sure my tables had fun. It did mean I was slotted for the same scenario 5 times but that was cool. I wound up playing twice when HQ released exess GMs. So I only ran two games that didn't earn a chronicle sheet.
I highly recommend looking up the Venture Officers for your area. There are a lot of Pathfinder Society games in your area.
If you were a little closer to the Dayton area I'd recommend you join us at some of our local events, but Columbus has quite a few games much closer to you with several good GMs that are used to GMing for kids as well as adults.

I was at table Black 4 on Thursday and Friday. On table Black 10 Saturday afternoon and evening. I think you would have known it was me cause I was wearing both a Gaymer and an Ally ribbon; so it would have come up in conversation.

Next year y'all just need to look me up on day one. I had 100 of each as early as Wed evening, and still have a few if somebody missed out, but it's hard to pass them out when you're tied to the GM table. I passed about half of them off to the Paizo booth Thursday Afternoon as they hadn't been able to get any yet. They managed to get a bundle on Friday though and had them at the counter the rest of the con I believe.
Of course I didn't go over to Scotty's because I'm just not much of a partier; so it's my fault for not being a good advertiser Wednesday evening. Next year I'll try and buck up a little bravery and plunge into the social setting.
I hate halflings and like gnomes & dwarves because the later two can do anything the former one can, but better. There is no point to tolken ripped off hobbits when they don't have their own special niche.
I love RP over combat. Combat is actually kinda boring.
I prefer R-rated and adult gaming to Disney flavored PG and G rated games.
There is not enough misogyny to fight against in the game. Why are slavery, bondage, and murder the only habits of bad guys in Pathfinder? Some times bad guys should be all around bad guys and not simple and easy to spot bad guys.
I hate the concept of drow being black skinned elves with super powers. Why can't drow just be evil elves who's skin color doesn't matter. That's scarier. Then you have to actually figure them out like any other race.
And I hate the destruction of the Shadow Lodge. Why y'all hatin' on us?

Honestly, I'd rather trek the Himalaya range too; even if I wasn't stressed because that sounds way cool.

I slotted myself for three evening specials, then I'm scheduled to run 7-02 the rest of the time. All tier 1 and 2 GMs are also expected to have the Confirmation and Wounded Wisp prepped just in case. If I hadn't slotted all three big evening events I'd probably be less nervous.
111. We need a plan;
RR: If we're gonna get outta here, we gonna need to get into that goblin warren, and to do that, I'm gonna need a few things. The guards wear magic bands to control their ins and outs. I need one.
G: Leave it to me.
RR: That dude there. I need his wooden leg.
SL: His leg?
RR: Yeah. God knows I don't need the rest of him. Look at him. He's a goblin.
SL: ...All right.
RR: And finally, on the wall back there is a black panel. Blinky yellow light. You see it?
RR: There's a quantum battery behind it. Purplish box. Green ooz coming out. To get into that watch tower, I definitely need it.
