What kind of showdown would you like? I could run something for you and Tom. I love showdowns!

You and me both, brutha! I've been mulling over a FPS style game similar to Call of Duty; killstreaks and all. But yeah, lets put something together.

Since I am going under the DriveThruRPG banner, I don't think I can check the sign up grids.

Can anyone tell me if folks have signed up for any of the Shaintar games?

Thanks!

It would appear the SSN game I signed up for has been cancelled (Talk is Cheap but Bullets are Cheaper).

Does anyone know if there will be unofficial games run at SSN?

If I had my druthers, I'd *love* to play a Berserk: The Manga showdown. if you've never read the comic you need to do yourself a favor and track it down. It's up to about 4000 pages now I think.

Barring that, I'd go for superheroes or even a scene from a classic western! Like Tuco and Blondoe in Good, Bad and the Ugly. I'm easy.

Norm I can assure you anything I run on at SSN or Origins will be unofficial to the point of obscurity!

Norm, you are NOT allowed in my game. Your half orc barbarian does too much damage. :razz:

Just decided @ last minute to head up to Origins for SSN.
Is there anyway I can still get into an event or all they all sold out?
Will there be pick up games @ SSN?

cheers!

Booo - Origins is over.

I did get to drop a big green slime on most of the PCs in my Savage Hommlet game (SSN). Olde Skoole ways are still the best :twisted:

Had a great! time at my first Origins! Good to see my old friend John from CA and to play in games run by Chaos Steve, Jeff (hommlet) and Sean Fannon. Also nice to game with Norm, Al and Dave.
Thanks to Tom (count zero) for driving and making sure the vehicle made it there and back! Way more fun than Gen Con. Now to just make it to Con on the Cob!

Another great year at Origins!!! Thanks to Jim for an awesome Serenity game on SSN and to Sean for letting me jump into the end of a Shaintar game and nuke the Big Bad Guy with the best die roll I had all weekend...
:blam:

Looking forward to Con on the Cob!!!

This was definitely one of the best Origins for me. I got to run a lot of Savage Worlds and play a little too. For those who are interested, I've posted the Savage Serenity adventure "Price of Success" that I ran during the con (including Savage Saturday Night) up on my website for free download: Dragonlaird Gaming.

Thanks to the Savage Worlds family for creating such an enjoyable game but more for creating a warm, welcoming, and entertaining community of Savages.
