I hope everyone enjoyed this comic! Its been a while since I really went all out on a strip, and its so satisfying to create something, especially if other people like it too!

Good wrap up of the con. Glad you like the game of Werewolves of Miller's Hollow I had a blast running it.

I just wished I could have gotten in another game or two, but there was so much to do I had to head on to the next thing!

I missed a couple panels I would have liked to go to that I was up for just because they would conflict with something else.

While I would have LOVED to run Basic Dungeons & Dragons there was honestly little time for me to actually do it during con hours. A shame that the people who asked to play on the forums this year didn't call me on my cellphone. I had it on every time I wasn't sleeping. It might have been fun to run it in the Starbucks lounge or even as an insanely nerdy room party!

One gamer stated they looked in the RPG room for me a couple of times, but I was never there.

I DIDN'T HAVE ANY TIME TO SIT AROUND.

I did so last year, and it basically cost me 2 hours of con time doing nothing. Hell, last year trying to run a Warhammer 40K 2nd edition game as a semi official thing cost me a good 6 hours and wasn't anything resembling fun. (And wasn't even finished as a semi local friend called to hang out and grab a bite to eat with us. Then 15 minutes after we started to pack up from what was basically a disaster he called back to cancel the plans. Yeah.)

This year time was scheduled much better for actually DOING stuff. And getting to talk with a lot of great people.

I just still didn't have all the time I needed!

I'm not sure if I mentioned this while were we playing Werewolves, but I run the gaming rooms at another con here in CT that will be going on this October.

Can I interest you in running a few games?

Captain Rufus said...

Another con in CT? I didn't even know there was another one, outside of Ellis Con!

SpotWeld said...

Well, in all fairness, it's not a gaming convention and it still rather small, so it may have been under your radar.

I don't do the fur thing, so I shall have to pass.

SpotWeld said...

No worries. It's not everyone's thing.

While were on the subject, you did know about ConnCon, right?

Captain Rufus said...

No, I did not. But as I only have a small amount of vacation time every year and Stamford is a bit far away from me (I am closer to Providence than I am Hartford nearly!) its probably not doable.

As is I am debating to join the Camarilla and join in a Changeling LARP that is really close to my house. Ill have to use vacation days to play, and won't get more than 1-2 games a season!

Hey! Because of you we got to meet even more cool people to talk to and such. You brought the radness and whatnot!

And now I have the Changeling book, so curse you getting me to buy it!

Apparently MagicDrew was gonna buy it to replace his dying copy, but I got to the nearest Borders before he did!
