Neat.  How'd the Scramble go?

Speaking as one of the runners who took part in the scramble I greatly enjoyed it as it offered something different than just sitting around a table, and a chance to find myself in competition with characters controlled/designed by other human beings rather than just blocks of stats at the GM's command.

That said there are several aspects of it that I feel could be improved upon, though I'm not sure if the five or so worth of pages of material I wrote on the subject would best be posted here, someplace else, or just kept to myself....

Always amused to hear how the Scramble goes at Origins, now that there's one there in addition to the Gencon one (which is the thing at Gencon that I look forward to the most).  The more info, the better would be my suggestion.

I'll try to get around to writing an unbiased account of what went down before the week is through.Before that though I plan to post my thoughts on the various other convention missions I went through here /on this form if not necessarily this thread obviously enough.

Thanks for sending up the thoughts James!  Glad you had some fun at it!

Next year we need to get the advertising going so we can get Origins Scramble as big as GenCon's has been

(This is Abraham, for those of you who met me at Origins)

I had a great time running and playing in missions at Origins. I have some feedback on some of the missions I ran - where should I send it? Should I post it here, or pm/email Bull, or what?

Relax guys.  I'm old and beat up.  It takes me a couple days to recover from cons.  I usually spend Monday largely in a coma and relaxing and catching up on a weeks worth of downloads, emails, and chatting with friends.  I'll be sending all the GMs an email later tonight. :)

As soemone who's never been to Irigins and only had a single, poorly-fated, trip to a GenCon, what, pray tell, is a Shadowrun Scramble?

It's about four hours o' Shadowrun LARP, and about four hours o' Shadowrun tabletop (with the same characters).  It's a good time!
