Where is the schedule? My attention span is so short that I couldn't spend more than 30 seconds looking.



I admit that I have a problem.

I did not see the Savage Seminar anywhere. Don't forget the event sign up is Sunday.

I found it at SEM1230265. It's under Pinnacle. There are only 10 left according to the system.

Also, tickets for SW games are selling out fast. Three of four I've arranged are already gone. Two are during Savage Saturday Night and two aren't.

Yeah, the Savage stuff apparently went really, really quick. I was lucky and was #330 in line at the start. I ended up with:

Thursday, 3pm Deadlands the Maze (Savage Deadlands)
Thursday, 8 pm Suffer the Little Children (Savage)
Friday, 9 am League of Extraordinary Gentlemen (Savage)
Friday, 2 pm The Xious Chronicles (Saga Edition Star Wars)
Friday, 6 pm Escape from the Byss (Savage Star Wars)
Saturday, 10 am Deadlands Hell on Wheels (Savage Deadlands)
Saturday, 1 pm Victorian-Victoria (Savage)
Saturday, 8 pm Savage Saturday: Apocalypse Prevention Incorporated (Savage API)

I'm hoping that Chitownroy and his son are able to pick up some Savage games in the next couple days, particularly on Saturday night because they got shut out for Saturday night.

Wow, that is VERY lucky. I clicked when the countdown ended and got 2011. After waiting 28 minutes for my games to be checked I only got in one of five... :-?

If anyone is going to add a Savage Saturday game then please let me know as I would like to pickup tickets for me and my son.

Did you two get into any SW games? I just saw that every single one of the 63 SW games is sold out.

If you search for Obatron in the keywords and any of the three games sounds like something you'd both want to play, let me know (private message is fine). I'll see if they'll let me add one more, although it couldn't be for SSN since Bob and I are already GMing there.

I noticed that all four of our slots show tickets bought in bulk (4-6 at a time). I suspect some folks might have bought tickets to any one game hoping that some other game will open up. Keep an eye on the ticketing system since this year Gen Con added a feature to let change their minds on events, putting tickets back into inventory.

We actually just picked up two API tickets for Saturday night which was what we originally wanted.

@PurdueBrad - I'm excited that you signed up for Escape From Byss. I created and am running that module. It is going to be SWEET!

Awesome, I'm really jazzed about that game. Look forward to seeing you at GenCon Zamboni!

It looks like I have an extra ticket for RPG1232401, Deadlands: The Maze, Fri at 3:00 PM for 2 hrs. Our group of 6 bought out the event, but then my buddy's event was approved and he'll be GMing during that time.

If you are interested, send me a message.

I managed to get in to the Terminator Revelations game on SSN with a few of my friends; really looking forward to it.

I'd like to run a SW game on SSN at GenCon this year. Am I too late to get my game in, or can I still make the deadline?

If anyone wants to be an alternate GM for Savage Saturday Night, please send an email to Mike/Steve so they can add you to the list. [Noting that they are at Origins right now, so they likely can't reply right away.]

Also, anyone looking to play in any open spots should try to have 2 generic tickets. Each ticket counts for a 2-hour game, and so 4-hour game slots like SSN need 2 tickets. It's important for us to get the tickets, so we can show GenCon the kind of attendance we're bringing in, so we can get a big enough space for next year.

This is my first Gencon, and I was really late in signing up for events. If I just show up to SSN with generic tickets in hand, what are the chances that I'll be able to get into something?
