Random Conquest thoughts

Really random...

Because I was running so much, I really didn't get to say more than hi to many people - I found that I was breezing through so much that it was a *wave* and "hope you're having fun". I sort of missed chatting to loads of folks that I only see at cons.

Food was ok, but a bit over cooked a couple of times. Somehow I got sick from a vegetable roll. I think the manufacturor snuck pumpkin into it. Running out of some of the drinks was a touch annoying, but I also wouldn't have predicted that it would be so warm, so I get why.

I really hate the layout the con uses. The more I think about it, the more I dislike it. The rego desk becomes a real bottleneck, and it looks like there's not enough space behind it for the orgs. Everything feels spread out a bit too much, and so there's a disjointed sensation. Having to use the backway to the canteen because the trader area closed early was frustrating, especially when the "Don't go this way" sign kept getting moved.

Other than that, and ending up with a crap room once :), things seemed pretty good. Orgs were around and helpful, nothing seemed to stutter too badly. I'm annoyed at some people that didn't show up, but I can beat them to death myself.

Of the 11 sessions I ran, Walter got killed 5 times, including being eaten twice. The Mars Rover remote control cars got nicked twice. One whole group was eaten by their totem. One of the playtesting groups frenzied on the building and destroyed it. A special mention to James Goldfinch for "Why don't you just flick the switch?". One group, on being confronted with a house full of bugs just sort of shrugged resignedly, walked in, got beer, walked out, crunching all the way. More urine than I care to think about was sprayed around someone else's territory. One team was a majority of Michaels.

Garouuuuuuu Innnnnnnnn Spaaaaaaace!!!!!!


Had much fun. One of the great parts of being in your games is watching you run it. You're the most animated GM I know, and your world is alive and vibrant right from the get-go. I'd love to have the chance one day to have a full, untimed session, so all your labours can be appreciated!

When one group started saying "In your face, Space Coyote!" I thought people had been anecdoting a little early :)

Huzzah :-) I am always wondering if its more like a crpg where things only activate when the players get closeby.

After Friday's canteen sales there was a "OMG! There is so much coke etc left! Don't buy any more drinks!" So running out of other stuff was seen as probable but better than ending up with a huge pile of drinks that would be difficult to onsell. And it got very warm towards the end of the con causing an unforseen run on bottled water.

Yah, fair enough - I figured the 27C day had something to do with the water. I'm getting old, coke and red eye really don't appeal any more :-)
