Has anyone got any extra room  in their hotel they're looking to fill (Obviously I'm willing to pay)? I've slept on the floor before so I'm not particularly concerned about that, and I figure that if one of you has his mind set on a bit of 'Orrible murder this thread will act as a paper trail to find my corpse.
I cast summon pedant.

I'm trying to run Delta Green for ArcDream but I'm still waiting on the games to be approved by GenCon. There was some confusion about who should enter what three months ago so now we're here. Hopefully that works out soon.

So in a wonderful twist of Karma, after my astounding luck with hotel reservations, all but two of the events on my wishlist sold out before my request processed... even the tables of Twilight Imperium (do you see Caleb?  it is possible for that game to be run during GenCon).

So I am making grape juice out of Lemons and I am going to just run/play/organize my own games with/for friends/fans as time allows.

If I need to make my own thread for this, fine.  But right now I am taking suggestions on games to run/bring.

Currently pondering:  5th Ed DnD, Dresden (low-tier Springfield one-shots, yay!), Anima (if I can find pregens), Numenera, or things related to Fate or ORE.

Hell, I'll haul TI up there if either 3 or 7 (in my experience, the game runs fastest with all 8 Strategies being picked/played) others can find time/space.

I am also considering pulling together a Monsters One-Shot to submit to Arc Dream.

Run MAOCT for Arc Dream - they give you stuff and players will love you. You could run Road Trip. That would be neat.

Kicking a scenario at them I've been pondering for awhile.  If that falls flat of if they need more help I'll offer to do Road Trip.

I need to get a copy of Road Trip at some point.

I've never seen an Anima game run. Never seen a pre-gen character either. I've cracked that book open many times over the years to try and figure it out: still haven't to this day.

The moment I laid eyes on an Anima character sheet I knew that was a game I would never play. For those not in the know, it's 4 pages long, 2 if you do front-and-back printing, and... here, just go here.

Not to say it's a bad game, just, yeah, not my thing.

I love that the damage meter goes to 400%. That game is anime as fuck. Which is, of course, why I have the corebook and an expansion despite never coming close to actually running it. I really should try and run it someday, as a test of my GM ability.

Not only does it go to 400%, you also get a Kabbalalistic Sephiroth on your sheet, for some reason! It's so damn anime! This makes me want an even more anime version of Katanas & Trenchcoats.

Anything with the Sephiroth worked into hits a soft place in my heart, even if it makes no damn sense.

So, in GenCon business, what are we going to do to Ross and Caleb at their panels? As proper fans we absolutely have to make their lives more difficult. What're those annoying horn things people played at the World Cup? Let's get some of those.

Find a copy of any Rifts supplement and ask Caleb to sign it

Yeah, at first I figured it just looked like a slightly more complicated D&D 3.5 sheet. Then I saw that big ol' 400% damage meter, and began to wonder...hmmm...

It's almost like I'm being challenged to run Anima....

If Envoy doesn't work out for ArcDream, then I might just have to...

Might be a fun excuse to try and actually learn Anima... hey Dan, how about we both study up and, if the chance presents itself, one of us can give it a try for some RPPR fans?

The Envoy thing is pretty weird; hope it works out well. Really ArcDream's games in general have been odd. When I first checked the system I thought I saw several games listed and now there's basically nothing. Not sure what happened.
