For convenience purposes here's a list of RPPR games:

Caleb's:
Games-
Better Angel's: RPG1454026

Seminars- (Also starring Ross Payton)
Economics in games: SEM1454021
RPPR Game Design: SEM1455039
NOTE- These seminars are nearly back to back so you'll need a 3 hours block of time to do both


That ended up being alot short than I thought it might be. Oh well. Anyone I forgot?

Caleb also has two No Security games during the Con, Bryson Springs (RPG1454022) and The Fall Without End (RPG1454027).

Ross has Base Raiders: Transit (RPG1459357), Elder Godlike: Operation Auger (RPG1459362), and Kerberos Club: The Grandfather Paradox (RPG1459358).

Its gonna be a mad dash to get into any games, let alone these, but hopefully I'll manage to get into at least one. Best of luck to everybody!

Apparently keyword searchs for words in the description, not the GM's name. Ha. Oops. Sorry Ross.

As much as I would like to be in a Caleb game I feel having read the source material and run Bryson Spring it would be disservice to other attendees if I got lucky and got in on that game.

May throw my name into the hat for the golden ticket for the Ross Kerboros Club game.

Hope to see many of you there are the meet up.

This is quite tough. So many things overlap. I guess I will put in my list tomorrow and see what happens.

Yeah, it was difficult for me as well. I'm running some D&D games for Baldman Games and unfortunately most of the RPPR guys' games overlapped with times I'm running games.

Edit: Bummer, couldn't get into the two that I could possibly play in. Ah well.

Well I got into Ross's Operation AUGUR game so expect to die horribly as well as a nights black agent game and a Timewatch game so pretty happy.

Had a conflict with the live Ken and Robin talk about stuff but it was my backup.

Going to troll for some seminars and maybe a delta green game or CoC game to round out the weekend.

Also even though she will not see this need to give some serious props to my wife who actually submitted my wish list and purchased my tickets at the opening time since I was unable to be near a computer at the time. Not sure what I did to deserve it but I will take it.

Just checked my games and everyting is sold out. Everything Delta Green is sold out actually. I think I recognize a few names (one I know I recognize) which is pretty cool.

Haven't managed to buy into a single game yet.

On the bright side, if i do nothing except hit panel discussions, see celebrities, and wander the con with a camera in hand it'll still be fun; getting to meet up with all of you'll just be the icing  ^_^

For people who have been before do games sort of open up at all? I know they say you can buy day of event tickets and pop into games that are missing players but how real is that?

I've found that the easiest thing to do is buy Generic Tickets and show up to the game you want to get into. I've had several games where either a player didn't show up or the GM had enough pregen characters to add people. I know the Posthuman guys are pretty good about extra players in games since they have tons of pregen characters in the books. Just be prepared to have to swap out if the player with the actual ticket shows up.

What Kamen says. Go for generics and wait for people not to show.
