CMP 2014-02      Boundless Mercy 2: Search                   Wednesday, 5pm

CMP 2014-06      Company Men 2: A Night’s Work           Friday, 8 am   
CMP 2014-04      Boundless Mercy 4: Destroy                  Friday, 1pm 
CMP 2010-02      Carbon Copy (only 1 time slot)             Friday, 6pm

CMP 2010-04      Humanitarian Aid (only 1 time slot)       Sunday, 10am

I've never been to Origins, but I've bought my ticket.  How do I register for games so I can make sure I get into the schedule above.  I think any change to this schedule means I'll have to do something twice or not play.  NOOOOOO!!

Thanks for any help/guidance you can give me.

Justkelly,

We have to wait till GAMA puts the origins event registration online. Worse case if you get locked out buy generics and bring them to the Shadowrun room, we did not turn a single player away last year and we intended to repeat that this year.

Just got done with Origins registration.  It took me 30 minutes, and I got EVERYTHING I wanted.  I'm very excited.

Have no fear the gm's will be there just show up with generics at the proper time slot and we will find you a table.

It's a real shame I'm European, so I can't GM here. If I ever go to the USA on vacation, I'll probably aim for Origins and see if I can aim for 32 hours. ^_^ But who knows if/when that might happen.

Just a note for folks that like me that had difficulty finding it - the Shadowrun Live event is called "Abandoned Assets" and is under the LARP section, not Roleplaying, and is event #2617.

I would be running a similar itinerary like that. This will also be my first time to Origins and I plan to get as much gaming in as possible, especially if I can get older mods in.

I know the tendency will be wanting to play every minute you're there, but it's not a bad idea to schedule at leat one slot "off".

It'll give you some time to refresh yourself and visit the rest of the  convention.

There's a lot going on - Origins occupies several city blocks and it would be a shame if ya'll spent the entire convention cooped up in one tiny function room. The dealer room itself is large enough to take a couple of hours just to browse through, even longer if you stop to participate in various demos being run by game companies.

I would like to thank the Catalyst Team for putting on a great show at Origins. It was my first time attending the event and to participate and be part of what was voted Best RPG of the Convention was thrilling.

I would like to thank all the GMs and players I sat along side. I learned a lot and hopefully I will be able to attend next year and possibly GenCon (next year).

I wholeheartedly agree with the above.

Glad you all had fun. It was a rockin' time for the GMs, and I'm glad we were able to seat everyone (or almost everyone, I'm not sure) who showed up to play. Can't make GenCon but see you all in Columbus next year!

It was an incredible show, and I'm glad y'all had fun. :) 

All told we shattered all previous Origins Attendance records, with an increase of 30% in the number of players we ran this weekend (813, not including all the folks who ran through the interactive demo and the quick play demos), and we even beat out our Gen Con 2012 attendance numbers with that.  Incredible. 

You guys are awesome.  On behalf of all of us on the Missions design/writing crew (ANd I'm sure Ray and the GMs wouldn't mind my saying this on their behalf as well), thanks for coming out.
