I plan on attending and would be willing to try my hand DMing at a con if you need some GMs Doug.

I would welcome the help. The local organizers have informed me they won't be supporting the convention due to a disagreement with the con leadership so it'll be my show. I'm going to aim for 30 sessions over six slots so I will need five GMs at a minimum. I'll take whatever you can give me. I should have a schedule posted next week.

Hey Doug. If you have a difficult time filling your tables with DMs, come on down to Chattanooga that same weekend for ConNooga and bring all the players with you. We'd love to have the Ohio crowd join us in TN. If you show up, then we can alternate DMing the PFS Special Event I am planning. Anyone who DMs 5 games gets a free weekend badge. We have DMs for 74 of the 80 tables we are running but I can certainly give up some of the games I am DMing, as well as several of my DMs scheduled to DM 7-8 games. Of the 80 tables, we are running 51 different scenarios of all levels! Come on down now, ya hear?

Hmmm...I had planned on going East Coast for a Con, but maybe I'll go only halfway to Ohio and visit my brother (Dayton) as well.

DougDoug, I will judge for you if I can confirm things and if you will have me. The first hurdle is overcome (Wife Approval=check).

Let me start making plans. Is there going to be a Warhorn for sign ups? Scheduling?

It's a pretty safe bet that players from Toledo aren't going to drive 500 miles to go to a con when there's an active association in their city. Players from southern Ohio (Cincinnati) and Kentucky will probably be drawn to your larger spread of events. More power to ya, I have to minister to my own flock :)

I will use Warhorn for sign-up but I have found that most PFS players are not familiar with the site. It is a lot of cat-herding to get them to register and sign up, and I've found most players at BASHCon are simply walk-ups. This will be the third year PFS events have been run there so maybe it's time to raise my expectations. I have requested a Warhorn site and will start populating it as soon as the admin sets it up.

Regardless, I would welcome the GM assistance. Schedule to follow soon.

Doug,

Is the cat out of the bag? Is your "Special Surprise" "The Midnight Mauler" a Tier 1–7 ?

If not, are you going to be running "The Midnight Mauler"?

Affirmative, the "Special Surprise" will be the 4-Star GM/Venture-Captain exclusive "The Midnight Mauler". I am only offering it three times at BASHCon in order to keep demand high. Who's Yer Con (March 11-13) is coming up and I want to make sure that I'm not leeching players from that event. If you want to wait I will offer it at Marmalade Dog (April 15-17).

I'm sure that some of these can be "slot 0" at our local venue so you can run them without spoiling the player experience.

The Exchange

Sign-up on Warhorn is now open for Pathfinder Society events at BASHCon.

You still have to register on BASHCon's convention website for convention admission and to reserve event tickets. Warhorn is only for table mustering and estimating demand.

Remember, if you GM three slots I will get you into the convention for free. If you GM six slots I will take care of your hotel arrangements.

A weekend with Doug at a con is ALWAYS a wild ride ... he's also kind of a taskmaster, you'll need to the clean underwear... personally I'm thinking of depends since he doesn't allow bathroom breaks...

I think you misunderstandified me...I was just talking about my one chance to sit at your table.

I can handle DougDoug, from what I hear, you just wave a table full of players but lacking a judge at him and that usually keeps him busy for 4 hours or so.

I just having an expectation of pain at your table.

I am still in need of GM volunteers for BASHCon. I need the following slots/scenarios covered:
Friday, 7PM The Chasm of Screams
Saturday, 9AM Master of the Fallen Fortress
Saturday, 7PM Darkest Vengeance
Sunday, 9AM Fingerprints of the Fiend
Sunday, 2PM Delirium's Tangle, Fury of the Fiend, The Penumbral Accords

GM 3 slots and convention admission is free. GM 6 slots and I will put you up in a local hotel.

Grand Lodge 4/5 Regional Venture-Coordinator, Great Lakes aka TwilightKnight

Add me to the GM slot for Friday night's The Chasm of Screams. Also, if any of my other tables do not run, you can count on me as a back-up for any scenario you need me to cover.

The Exchange

Bob .. email me later today .. we'll get travel plans hashed out ... and I'll try to remember to make the hotel reservation :P

Sovereign Court 4/5

I will be attending but will miss Friday and the last slot on Sunday.

I have run both Master of the Fallen Fortress and Darkest Vengeance before and could run them again if needed.

I could also run Fingerprints of the Fiend but I'd much rather play that one than run it.

The Exchange

Thanks everyone!

Reservation made - check
Gaming supplies in order - check
5 weeks to travel time -- check

Though if you find someone else willing to GM Darkest engeance I wouldn't mind playing that slot instead.

Yo MidWestern Peeps--

I guess I should get off my scaly hide and begin making plans to get my face smashed in Toledo. I need a bit of help with my travel plans.

So...
Signed up to judge 3 mods? Check.
Signed up to get smashed by Thea? Check.
Signed up to get crushed by Twilight? Check.
Signed up to get facegouged by DougDoug? Check.
Hotel reservations? Check.

Flight plans? Mostly check....

I'm flying in from my layer of the Abyss to Toledo on Friday, 2/18. I assume that I can get to the hotel/con without too much difficulty.

I fly back to the Abyss on Friday, 2/25 at 10am from Toledo.

What I need help with is getting to and fro the University of Dayton (where my brother is) from Sunday night after the con to Friday morning.

Yes, I have a driver's license, but little experience driving in ice/snow.

What are my public transportation options? Rail/bus/whatever? Any thoughts?

Thanks.

Yes. I am quite upset that I can't be there to properly smash your face in. If I were, I would be expecting a "Painlord's Guide to Surviving Kyle's Table." ;-)

Have fun, and don't let intimidate you. He's a big softy, Thea's the real killer.

Greyhound bus line

Looks like $58 will get you a Greyhound bus round-trip ticket from Toledo to Dayton (the bus station is in Trotwood, 21 minutes NW of the University of Dayton proper) if you schedule it and pay in advance.

You're going in the opposite direction from me so I won't be able to assist.
