Very cool. I saw you mention this on the other forums, I'm sure that was a tough decision to make but I know Paul will really appreciate it.
Yeah, Paul's a good guy, and I'm happy to help him out. If it falls through that I don't need to DM, I can find my way into another game without too much difficulty, I imagine/hope! :D

Allan.

I was browsing through the events listing and saw someone is running a My Little Pony game. No kidding. :roll:

If it's Carlos' game, it's a game for kids (and Carlos knows his Greyhawk quite well, and is helping Darlene while she's at the show too; a good guy!).

Otherwise I'm right there with your eye-roll! :D

I'm gonna tell you a secret, but if you tell anyone, I'll come to Nebraska and gork you in the guzzle.

So Emmi is currently 3rd level working on 4th, lol. She watches the new My Little Pony cartoon on Netflix from time to time and collects the pony toys here and there, Of course I'm in the living room now and again when it's on, and to be honest, the writers of that show are definitely D&D gamers in some aspect or another. Not always, but every so often I'll get caught up in an episode because I'll catch a phrase or something that is definitely a loose reference to something D&D. So yeah, I admit I've watched the show and it's been known to be entertaining. :D

The cool thing is, there is an actual My Little Pony RPG with core book, gm screen, bestiary, dice packs, and even a campaign setting I believe. I've considered picking it up to run for Emmi when she's old enough. The local game shop here had the bestiary on the shelf and I thumbed through. There were some very iconic looking monsters that may or may not resemble monsters from the AD&D MM.

So while it might not seem fitting for GC at first glance, and technically it is tailored to kids, it's not as far from the mark as you think.

Ugh, still not a fan of the tiered registration for GC. Three of the games I wanted to shoot for were completely sold out after the Gold holders registered this weekend. It would be nice if at least one-fourth or one-half of the seats were reserved for Silver badge holders to at least get a shot at getting them.

That's a worthwhile suggestion to make to Luke and crew, Jay!

A few of the events I have on my planning spreadsheet are sold out as well. I put about 10 events on each day just in case sell outs were to occur. My problem is trying to decide what to go after due to too many timing overlaps.

I'm not expecting to get every game I have highlighted on my spreadsheet, but if I do its gonna be a hella busy con! My top events, due in no small part to scheduling conflicts, is for

Buried II and AD&D on Thursday
C&C and HackMaster on Friday
AS&SH and AD&D on Saturday

And I have alternates picked out for each day... just in case.

Good luck on registration!

Wow! This registration is probably the best experience I've ever had for a con. The interface worked flawlessly and I got every game targeted that fit within my scheduling parameters.

Thursday
Buried II: A Light in Dark Places, S&W White Box, 2 PM
Arden Vul - The Tomb of the Twins, AD&D, 7 PM

Friday
DA1, Dark Journey, C&C, 2 PM
Tower of the Mad Wizard, HackMaster, 8 PM

Saturday
Escape from Onja Cot, AS&SH, 10 AM
The Plague Monks of Gwent Ys Coed, AD&D, 6 PM

This has some great potential!
