GenCon 2014 and the 5th RPPR Fan Meet-up
« on: November 29, 2013, 03:08:56 PM »
It's not even time to think about getting pre-badge purchases yet but when has that stopped me thinking out the next GenCon?

Last year's meet-up was alot of fun for me and I only spent an hour or two there because of my schedule.

As a celebration of Base Raiders being release I had an idea for a possible event to do at the meet-up in 2014: giant murder base death trap. Much like the death matches past, except in a huge, pre-designed base filled with powers sources, implements of murder, and traps.

Thoughts? Objections?

EDIT: Thursday night, at the Hyatt is the plan - try to get there around 6 pm. We will then go to the Delta Green panel at 8 pm http://gencon.highprogrammer.com/gencon-indy-2014.cgi/event/SEM1459823 and then hang out after the panel

There is a GroupMe thing set up for RPPR listeners: https://groupme.com/join_group/9334088/kIcxoS

Lookin' forward to having you. I figure that since it's the 5th meet-up we should try to do something bigger than we've done previously and that puts minimals strain on the RPPR crew, by which I mostly mean Ross.

Don't worry, we're gonna make this a GenCon you won't forget.

I approve of this deathtrap base game idea. We could do a mini-tourney thing: Tad, Caleb, and I can each run a 1 hour game using Fate Accelerated (to speed things up) and then the survivors meet for a single game in the end. Anyone who dies in the first round becomes a zombie who tries to kill the remaining players. Or something like that. I don't know.

I don't know as that really did not work out for me the last time.....

I like the idea of doing enclosed areas that are actually connected and then for the championship round all the doors are thrown open. Like, we have a map for each game and then for the final we put them all on the same table so they connect, allowing the survivors to go between areas and letting the zombified PCs act.

If we only give the zombies one action (you can move or you can do something simple) and they all have to act at the same time than we can actually turn them into an honest to god zombie horde.

I am in favor of the idea. I just like to know if we'd also be playing some card games like we did last year while we are waiting for more people to show up?

Channel A was really fun before and after some of us acquired "spirits" power-ups.

Things are looking shaky now, financially I can go but my wingman isn't looking so great. I'd go by myself but it's a big step to fly across the world from the UK by myself and I'm not the worldly wise traveller Ross is. It may have to wait a year for my buddy to save up again... One cold horrible slow year.

The game sounds fun to me. I didn't make the meet up last year due to some scheduling issues. I won't make that mistake this year.

I did have the pleasure to meet Tad though. He was running a Better Angels game next to a Reign game I was playing in. Everyone at your table was in stitches laughing Tad, it sounded like an awesome game.

I wanna go to GenCon so very badly this year. However, being a working schlub prevents me from doing it.

We need some video and pictures of the RPPR meetup this year, if only to satisfy the vicarious whims of those of us not sensible (or crazy) enough to show up this year!

I can assure you that more pictures and videos will be available this year as both myself and my brother will be bringing cameras.

Besides, this is the 5th Meet-Up; time to get serious about.
