    Well, as of now it looks like the missus and I will indeed be attending Con on the Cob for the first time. As in, days off work scheduled, funds being squirreled away, and officially registering will likely be a part of my birthday shenanigans tomorrow. Funny enough, it will also be my first real convention.

    The 12- to 15-hour drive up there will be rough, but I’m pretty stoked. The biggest concern I have is making sure the wife stays entertained. She’s down for some board and card games but is otherwise not much for nerditry. I almost had her playing Mouse Guard with us once (she got as far as making a character)… But who knows, she might come around. You guys can help. We may also end up bopping around Cleveland for a little while one day simply because we’ve never been there.

    Anyhow, once I get a badge number and such I’ll be sure to hit up the registration board and get a spot in Andy’s Low Life game, the Oithling panel, and Wap’s X-Wing happenin’. I’m seriously eyeballing the Ghostbusters International thing too.

    See you suckas in October.

    Well. Scratch that. As responsibility has that awesome way of kicking you square in the short and curlies while showing you crude and horrifying crayon drawings of your mother, I will sadly not be able to make it this year.

    We’ll pin partial blame on finances, but the majority goes to me “volunteering” to work a huge banquet at the supposed richest people in the state’s palatial hilltop money boner. Of course it happens to be on the very same weekend we’d set aside to be Ohio-bound. So I’ll get to see nauseating displays of wealth, cook some stuff, get yelled at by a chef I don’t even work for, and be paid a relative pittance for it afterward while said chef gets all the credit.

    Best-case scenario, I’ll be able to swipe a leftover bottle of expensive champagne and possibly one of the solid gold toilet handles they sadly do have. Because, y’know, Arkansas.

    In lieu of con awesomeness, I think the wife and I decided to spend the rest of the weekend in Eureka Springs. They have a haunted hotel and a huge statue of Jesus or something. And hippies. I’m pretty sure there are a lot of hippies there too. I might be able to go see GWAR for the 24987463th time too, so there’s that.

    So yet again I’m forced to say: Maybe next year.

    Will do, man. I’ll get it to you sometime this week while I’m in full-speed Low Life mode. I’m working on the first two adventures for the campaign I’m kicking off next week for my meatspace group, y’see.

    Let me know what you’re stuck on macro-wise and I might be able to help out. Either here or we can hop on Roll20 one night and figure it out real-time.

    Yeah, come Hell or high water I’ll be there next year without dumb ol’ work crapping on my plans.

    Quite possibly. The one I’m doing right now is just a straight re-skin of a short Deadlands Reloaded adventure, and wouldn’t feel right posting it anywhere freely downloadable, but everything after that is all me.

    I love one sheets because, y’know, everything is there on one sheet… despite my tendency to expand every one that I’ve ever ran into something like four or five.

    There is nothing I didn’t like about that last sentence. It is usually the last moment add ons that the players remember, for good or ill.
