Too far and already have long distance trips planned this year.

Maybe will go to an event that is a bit closer, relatively as no major city nearer than 4 hour drive (albuquerque)and phoenix about 6-7 hours. Dallas 9-12 hours as is Los Angeles.

Yay - I hadn't seen this and started a thread elsewhere.

But I certainly plan to be there!

For those who might not know, the theme for Origins this year is "Superheroes".  :'(

Miss you guys!

Going to Origins itself is still up in the air as far as I'm concerned, but it would be nice to meet some of you all at BD's.   :D


Hmm might just have to make up a CoH/X ID Badge with Icons/Images of my Main/favorite chars from ingame.

As always, you'll be able to find me in the dealer hall at the Catalyst Game Labs booth.

And now, to scare the crap out of you:



No.  Not the gun.  That's just for general crowd control at cons....   ;D

The face.  The "Oh my flarking Bob!  WHAT THE HELL IS THAT?" face.

Well, dang!

A very close friend won MidRealm Crown Tournament and will be holding his first Court on June 15 up near Cleveland, so I can't be at Origins this year.

And since the day pass is only for Saturday, I guess I can't even tour the vendor hall on another day. :'(

Hope to see folks next year, and possibly at GenCon.

By the way, I just saw a news story that Indy will have a ComicCon in 2014 - fingers crossed that it will be great and I will see folks there as well.

If you need a hall pass for a short period of time, I'm sure we could arrange something...

Sadly, the last two Origins my wife and I went too ended up being a poor time. Last minute game cancellations all around. But hearing that a CoH M&G might be enough for me to give it one more chance.

Hmmm, intriguing. I will need to check my work schedule for that week.

Does anyone know if any former Paragon devs live on the east coast? Perhaps one of them would like to come talk with us at the meet and greet.

Not that I know of.  I believe all of them are still out living in Yuppieland.  Err...Trail-Mix-Land.  Err...California.

Okay, I'm on site.
6 hour drive.
Played taxi service for some of my cohorts coming in from Seattle.
An hour or so to hump stuff off the truck and get some of our flooring put down.
Gonna make a Wally-world (Wal-Mart) run this evening.

I'll be at BD's on Saturday. Looking forward to meeting some of you :)

btw is this in a reserved area, like will I need to tell them: "I'm here for the coh meet and greet?" I've never ate here before either so how much can I expect to spend?

Had about 14 people there.  Good times had by all!

Great to be able to talk to people about the game in a face-to-face manner!

Sorry to all those who couldn't make it.  Hope to see some of you back for next year, or at GenCon.

Will try to post my pics tomorrow evening.  This is one of the nights I haven't been worn down to a bone.  So I'm going to go out and game till I feel that way!
