I've often thought about watching a History channel style show narrated by Adam Scott Glancy. Something like "Drunk History" where you get the narration and then have actors match it, not the actual historical events. I invision a story that keeps jumping from horrible event or horrible event across time and distance.

Sadly it seems the USPS has lost my con packet which is less than cool. Apparently it can be reprinted at customer service but I am told getting into the con door via will call or customer service is not for the feint of heart. I am getting in at 8AM on Thursday so hopefully I can beat some of the crazy hordes but if you see a broken man wailing in pain and confusion at customer service have pity on him for that man might be me. I mean likely it is not me because it will all be fine but it could be.

I ran in the exact same situation last year and the people at the badge pick-up counter were very understanding. As long as you have sufficent documentation to prove you are who you say you are then you should be okay. I ended up taking my digital receipt, the one that was mailed to me (sans my badge), a copy of my bank statement with the purchase and my photo ID.

Listen GenCon customer service person, I totally bought a badge and had tickets to all the really cool games at the most desirable times, you can trust me, I got a trust worthy face don't I.

Actually happily the USPS did have my package sitting in a backroom somewhere and I was able to retrieve it this morning so no having to fight the hordes at customer service. In the immortal words of one of our greatest philosophers, "Looks like everything is coming up Tim."

Hi all, I live in Indy and would love to meet up with some fellow listeners. Is this going to be around 6pm at the Hyatt, have I read this thread right?

"The usual meet-up day has been Thursday around 6:00 p.m." BeyondSandrock
"We used to do the lobby/bar at the Embassy but that got really crowded. Last year's plan of meeting at the bar of the Hyatt and them moving to a conference room worked great." Tadanori Oyama

A quick recap so people don't have to go digging through the other pages. Tad and I will be at the meet-up location, like the Hyatt again, early with a marker so folks can find the gathering.

Can't wait to see everyone there.  ;D

In order to facilitate communications more easily - I've set up a new GroupMe group for RPPR fans - https://groupme.com/join_group/9334088/kIcxoS

Not know what GroupMe is? It's a free mobile messaging app. With it, we should be able to coordinate more easily during Gencon.

We have evolved to speak in only pictures, at least for now.

Soon we shall transcend pictures and take our place amongst the others who speak in Youtube memes as their means of communication.

BTW i'll be carrying around a pirate box loaded with RPPR episodes - it's a portable wifi media server with a message board built into it - you can leave a message there so I can check it out later.

Also, Caleb and I do have to go to the Posthuman Studios freelancer meeting so we will have to leave around 7 but we will be back after it. Also, with the groupme, we can coordinate additional meetups and games, so get in on that shit.
