Lots of Missions on tap for this year.  Almost 100 events slated for this year, including the Tournament, the Scramble, two GM Bootcamps (Basic Training and Advanced Training!), Who's Run is it Anyway?, Welcome to the 6th World (In depth introduction to the game, including creating your own characters using the new Runners Toolkit), plus the 2010 & 2011 CMP adventures and the first few Season 4 Missions!

Should be fun!

Yeah... I'll be there for the Championship, but have to work out the details for anything else. (Mind you, in between games I'll be in the Exhibition Hall buggin' all you guys. ;))

Since I'm going with Critias and his friends I will probably be running in a BT game as well as some wargaming. I think he wants to do the SR LARP, too, but If just as soon let him say. He wrote one of those Missions games, and it's awesome. I wanted to write Burn Notice, but didn't have the time, and so I'm exited to see that in play.

Honestly though I have no idea what to choose to sign up for yet.

Gimme a week or two, and I will have written two of the CMP adventures (the second of which will also be awesome, of course).  ;)

I'm bring a pin to pop your ego, Critias ;)

Anyway...

And, here's a full list with times, though it's subject to change as it's not entirely final until Event Reg goes live.

Shadowrun Scramble? Sounds like an omlette with a lot of ham.. HA HA! funny.... ;)

Though "Who's Run is it Anyway" sounds right up my alley. Some say I look like a cross between Drew Carrey and Colin Mockery. I love improv.

If I didn't think the adventures were awesome, I wouldn't be writing 'em!  What, you'd prefer I aim for mediocre?   :P

Out of curiousity, what's with the half-beat slots?  Seems like running things half out of phase is going to make a mess of getting walk-ins seated at tables.

Gen Con doesn't actually have set slots, like some cons do.  There are games starting on the hour, every hour, all day long. 

We have a room with 12 tables, and I staggered the games so we have 6 events starting every two hours from 10 AM until the Tournament starts at 8 PM (At which time, all the tables are booked for the Tourney).  This way, chances are most folks can find a good starting time that fits in with other event scheduling.

It also helps a little with organization, as it means we don't have 84+ people (12 Tables with 6+ players and a GM) all getting up and leaving at once, while 84+ more people are trying to file in at the same time. And it makes it a little easier to arrange free time for the GMs to attend other events as well.

I signed up for:

Congressional Conspiracies on Thursday at noon

Shadowrun Scramble on Thursday at 4pm

Burn Notice on Friday at noon

I may have to drop CC because it and the Scramble are at two different locations and I don't know how lenient these schedules are, but I'll be damned if I miss out on an opportunity to LARP with Critias.

And, yes, I will figure out a way to mark my badge with my Internet handle. Might live tweet it too since GenCon is part of this whole ... Thing ... I'm going to be doing this summer.
