Isn't that what this Game is about? Diceyness?

There's diceyness, and then there's diceyness. This conversation is veering into territory (i.e. the intimate prowess of anyone—Paizo staff or otherwise) that is irrelevant to convention planning and doesn't really belong on our messageboards.

Hmm quietly dumps the bag of brownies. "It's okay. You can go now." They harrumph and give her dirty looks.

John, we're a Lodge given to both silliness and hyperbole. We did not mean to veer into uncomfortable territory. Sorry if our silliness struck the wrong tone.

Will you accept our apology?

My apologies for the offense. It was not intended.

Being a librarian, I looked up 'virility'. It's a complicated word with a complicated history. If you leave off the troublesome implications of gender and fertility (as I intend to do so as a female GM from this Lodge) it's also a word associated with such positive ideas as vigor, health, sturdiness and constitution.

I do like the concept of describing the Minnesota lodge by its combined vigor. We have a lot of positive energy, and we not only enjoy having fun, but we like to give back to the community at large.

So let's take our feet out of our collective mouths (because really, it would violate health code regulations) and concentrate on what makes this convention wonderful.

This is Skål Con 2016! We promise you pirates! We promise you excellent food! We promise you a big-hearted energetic community of gamers who will run a well-organized event, and raise money for charity at the same time.

Come join us, one and all!

Indeed! Who would not want to be part of this? Though perhaps even bigger this year! I still have fond memories of our high-tier table for that special silencing the entire room to see if there were any Caydenites with Create Ale handy.

We are the very model of a con of great vitality
Hosted by the lodge of the Twin Cities locality
We joke of vikings and pirates of questionable morality
(And none of us post on Paizo with very much neutrality)
But please come enjoy our legendary hospitality
Fundraising with philanthropic insanity!
SkålCon is where we drink and game and share
(And where we free our venture officers of their excess hair)
You cannot accuse us of much complacency
We raise funds for the awesome Tubman agency
Doubt neither our veracity nor our great audacity
We are the very model of a con of great vitality!

In order to keep with Paizo’s guidelines of civility
We are no longer allowed to boast of our virility
But we can make endless jokes of THUNDERLIPS’ senility
(I say this with a small measure of deniability)
You can see that although we may lack humility
We do not lack for great feats of verbal agility
SkålCon is where we drink and game and share
(And where we free our venture officers of their excess hair)
Come join us and eat at FFGC’s amazing grill
Enjoy food, fun and fellowship with grace and with good will
And if that’s not enough you might soon have the ability
To play a retired scenario by Boomer written quite wittily!

Why are there no bard-like archetypes for the vigilante so I can play the composed Sullivan by day and the liberating Gilbert by night?

Grand Lodge 5/5 5/55/55/5 Venture-Captain, Online—PbP aka Hmm

There is a masked performer archetype of bard, but alas it trades off bardic knowledge for the secret identity. I did look long and hard at that one, though!

Gilbert and Sullivan would be great names for a masked performer! And this convention needs more musical numbers! Really, it's the only thing that it lacks...

See you in September.

I will have to see what plans are, but I would greatly enjoy attending a convention with the Twin Cities lodge. We have hosted a few of your number at our local conventions, and it was my great privilege to play with them. I have never had more fun with a moose. I have never been more frustrated with a moose. I have never had to bargain with a moose. Because let's face it, at a certain point you're not the character any more, the moose is. I mean he has his own art.

I am attempting to figure out the logistics of traveling to SKAL from the Chicagoland area with rest and not the hassle of flying.

Is there anyone going from the Chicagoland area I could meet up with to ride up, or is my best option SpAmtrak?

My wife seems to think that Megabus is an answer. I remain suspicious.

What are good hotels and the like in the area?

I'm thinking of heading up a day before (at least) and heading down a day after (at least).

Most of the SkålCon group is staying here: Roseville Radisson.

Though if you want real Murder Hobo atmosphere from the "Ninth Circle of Hell", Earl suggests the Red Roof Inn.

The rest of us are staying in the Radisson, though! Come hang out with us!

I do not 'hit the Roof' after the horrific experience I had with one in Columbus a few years ago for Origins.

When you get 'concrud' on the second day, and you haven't been 'overdoing' it, there's something wrong.

*looks at the prices of the rooms, and winces*

Anyone mind a snoring person that can room with up to two other people, as he's gotten too old for 'barracks-style' housing?

Slowly, the hatch to the underground shelter labled MN-VL-STP-2 opens, the squinting form of a Sasquatch-like beast shying away from the light.
