Origins 2012 - May 30-June 3rd

#1 Postby chitownroy » Thu Jan 12, 2012 11:35 pm

I know we are a few months off but I was looking to get an idea of who all is thinking of heading to Origins. It looks like I will be able to at least spend a couple days at Origins and go to Gencon as well. So who's going to Origins?

I was thinking about attending Origins this year, but the date change kind of killed it for me for a couple of reasons. :(

I've been contemplating attending on Saturday only - probably depends upon if I can find someone to go with.

I've signed up to run a Savage Serenity adventure four times across the con (gimme that sweet free GM badge!). I'll have the gear so I could run it at Savage Saturday Night as well.

For those looking for it when listed, it is "Price of Success".

I'm out for 2012 due to the date change. Origins is now on the same weekend as a local favorite con and I've decided to attend the local con instead. That said, there's a chance I'll be going to GenCon this year, depending on my ability to save money to do so and a friend also attending to save hotel costs.

I'm at the Hyatt Regency Tom. It's been very user friendly for me and I like being able to hang out late with everyone at the Big Bar on 2 then be at my room in 3 minutes.

The events lists are up!

Looks like 8 Savage Saturday Night games? Although Event 6698 (Savage Saturday Night: Talk is Cheap, but Bullets are Cheaper) looks like it has 8:00AM instead of 8:00PM. I don't suppose the GM is a forum member?

So what are you signing up for?

How does event registration work? Is it like Gencon where you have mash the refresh buttons and hope you get a game that you want to play in?

We actually have 9 games. One of them has SSN at the end of the event name. But it's all good because the great folks at Origins caught it and it's in the same room with the rest of us.

Now to go see if I screwed up any of MY events. :-?

Does anyone know if I need to buy my pass before I register for events or can I do all at the same time? My reason for asking is I am still not sure if I am going so I would like to see what I can get signed up for in order to decide what days I go.
