Hi /tg/.

So I was at a con today. My first time as a merchant and it went surprisingly well.

I want to hear more convention stories now. Good stories, bad stories, unbelievable stories, tell me!

PnP, Tabletop, LARP, anything goes.

>> No.20921668

I went to a pretty terrible local convention for gaming. The only upside was reuniting with some kids I lost touch with. Everything else was outrageously bothersome. This kid with severe autism kept trying to interject himself in my conversations and touch my kindle.

How'd the merchant deal go?

I have HUNDREDS if not thousands of awesome stories.

But if we talking about con stories than I have only one that is worth to mention.
This happened at the end of the first and so far only anime con where I went.
Some random kid at the end sat near to a vending machine and tried to acquire a little money so they can purchase something from the vending machine.
As I walked past by them I realized that while they do it in a pathetic way people still gave them money.
So I just made a "ninja mask" from my sweater, acquired a piece of paper and wrote down "WILL KILL FOR FOOD" and sat literally next to them.

Long story short: I was the one who get soda from the vending machine first.

A story from a con WAY back, when I was a wee little kitten:

It was summer and we were playing a wacky, tongue-in-cheek campaign of WFRP over the course of two days.
We played outside on a big wooden table next to a big fire the con people set up. But there also was a oWoD Vampire LARP going on at the same con.
In the middle of the night, a scrawny looking goth dude slowly and awkwardly crept up to our table and once he got close to us went all "BLARGH BLARGH I AM A MONSTER, TREMBLE MORTALS A-BLOO-BLOO-BLOO".
We all stared at him in utter silence for like half a minute, before he shyly asked "You... you are not NPCs?" And we ALL replied in one voice "NO".

Seeing him blush and scuffle away was both heartbreaking and hilarious.

Yeah, I think a Rance costume would be hilarious to take to Pax, Gencon, or an anime convention. For the most part, you'd just look like a dude in green wearing armor. Then you'd get those occasional people who recognize it, and you can knowingly grin and say "heh, pervert!"

>> No.20922122

it's not really the derby thing that makes me dislike animecons. It's the fact that nearly nothing happens at them. There are vendors and a few people in costumes and... well some other things in a few rooms. But that's all. Everyone wanders around and do nothing.

PAX is pretty cool if you can get out here to Seattle. Though there's PAX East now, if you only want to go to the East Coast (West Coast is Best Coast). PAX is cool if 1) you like gaming of any kind, or anything remotely related to the internet, and 2) if you like Penny Arcade.

It was the summer of 2010, near the urban heart of Minnesota, CONvergeance '10 was taking place; a few friends of mine had gone to this Con a few times before and knew the scene, however I was a virgin to such wonders and knew not what to expect.

After trolling around Rosedale Mall for a few hours to looking for a purple sweatshirt (which are next to impossible to find mid-July), I was able to thrown on my Pokewalker in an attempt to cosplay Gary Motherfucking Oak. I had never cosplayed before so I was going casual mode: blue jeans, purple shirt, prop, and a little hair gel for a faux-anime look.

I walked into the Sherridan Hotel ready for all sorts of wonderful nerdy delights, but I was not prepared for the events that took place once the sun went down.

As I had said before, my friends were no freshmen to this particular Con, in fact, I learned that they ran on of the more successful themed rooms during the event: The Bearded Gnome. During most of the day, the Bearded Gnome was a simple room where we kept a kettlecorn machine, soda, and low level D&D adventured provided by my friend, who is honestly one of the best DMs I know and would fight to the death to defend that. But I digress, during the night, our little room was known as the best place to pick up a solid game of beer pong and trading tales with other gamers from around the country.

Before I continue I must introduce a character very important to the next bit of this story, The Barbarian.

>> No.20923093


Moral dilemmas for him would ensue, likely. The historical-nerd side of him would probably try to strangle his mental issues just long enough to get in.

>> No.20923149

The Barbarian, as I will call him in this adventure, is one of the most fascinating people I know, always playing the most interesting, but not That Guy, characters in every RPG. I call him the Barbarian due to the fact that he is over 6'2" and easily over 210lbs., in addition to his love of death metal he also participated in foam fighting leagues across the midwest and was no stranger to a bar brawl. Oh, and he wrote "Barbarian" on his name tag.

During the first night of the Con, we were all on the porch of our party room enjoying some beers, when two delightfully pleasant females entered our room, after carding them (we ran a tight room), we passed out drinks and got to talking. During this talking a certain member of our group began flirting with one of the girls, running quite a bit of "mad game" as the youth today call it.
After roughly ten minutes of this, Barbarian was growing disgusted by this (as it turns out, this man was engaged) and in a flight of fancy (and alcohol) offers me five dollars to cock block the poor sod.

I happily agreed

>> No.20923218

Approaching our Romeo (we'll call him Guy for simplicity), I asked him how we was and asked (loudly) why couldn't his fiance make it to the festivities. Several times. Noticing the game I was playing with Guy, our lovely lass decided to start up a conversation with a female friend dressed as Black Lantern Wonder Woman.
"That was gay, dude."
I apologize, asking him what I had done to offend him; but the situation quickly switched as Barbarian came over and started chatting up Guy. Not one to miss an opportunity I relocated myself amongst the women and apologized for interrupting their conversation earlier.

After a few hours, we decided to head up to the hotel rooms and relax there, inviting our friend our new friend with us.

After a while, Guy decided to approach me and begin again his issue with my cock blocking. I won't bore /tg/ with the details, but it reached a point where Guy wanted to resort to violence. Barbarian was having none of this, calling Guy and his second out for general douchebaggery, while Barbarian, mayself and Clockwork (on account of being dressed as Alex from A Clockwork Orange), told him that any acts of violence would be answered with disproportionally large retribution.

Leaving in a huff, Guy and his buddy leave the hotel for the night, while New Girl and Wonder Woman left the room to avoid drunk men fighting.

Being the up most example of gentleman roguishness, I followed the ladies to offer my apologies for our behavior and to take them back to their rooms.

Like I said, we had all been drinking that evening and ideas of maturity were not a high priority. Walking the women to their room had become an adventure of exploring the hotel at night.
Wandering around the various floors, checking out different party rooms, trying various drinks, heading out to the parking lot to converse with the smokers outside, many exciting moments were had. None, however matched the importance of taking a service elevator to the top floor and entering a very swanky washroom. Finding that this had one of the nicest views in the entire hotel we stayed there for quite sometime, reaching 2 am before Wonder Woman (in normal clothes by this point) had suggested she take her leave, either tired from the adventures of the day, or more probably, uncomfortable since New Girl had drunkenly requested that I take off my shirt and give it to her. To which I complied.

While taking the elevator upstairs, New Girl simply turned to me and asked that I gave her my shirt. Since sobriety had long retired for the night, I found nothing wrong with this request and promptly gave her my Power Rangers t-shirt.

After giving her my shirt, she reached into her purse to show me something. A pair of red, leather-bound, handcuffs.
>oh my
I won't lie, this got me far more interested in the night than anything previous.
After putting the handcuffs on me she threw me against the bathroom stall and asked Wonder Woman if she should whip me with my shirt.

Realizing that simple voyeurism was child's play to New Girl, WW decided that it was getting too real and that is when she decided to leave with a semblance of innocence.

She gave me a look while leaving, a look I misinterpreted as "you crazy bastard", which I should have read as "She's cray and you will regret this".

Well after she let, the whipping turned into other activities that I shall leave to the creative minds of /tg/ (I will say it involved a DC 15 Balance check)

Moving to WW's room, I frantically began knocking on their door, hoping a hotel worker wouldn't find me and try to have me removed.
Relief washed over me as the door opened, WW asked me what happened and gave me back my shirt (turns out she took it from New Girl, but left without giving it back [again too drunk and horny to notice]).

DC 15. Now, going by the SRD, this implies one of the following situations took place:
1. You attempted to balance on a severely obstructed or slippery surface between 7 and 12 inches wide.
2. You attempted to travel at your normal running speed across a surface between 7 and 12 inches wide.
3. You attempted to balance on a surface between 2 and 6 inches wide.

>> No.20923825

It was about 9 am when Clockwork woke me up to let me back into our room to crash (he and Barbarian ended up sharing a bed, because they wanted to make sure I had a place to sleep, true bros).
I slept well /tg/ if nothing else, I slept well.
But this sleep, like this story and all good things, had to end.
I awoke with damn my entire group in my room, I tried to hide my shit eating grin, but they already knew what had happened. A friend of WW's asked "You didn't actually sleep with her did you?", "Dude, you NEVER fuck at con..." Clockwork chimed in. It was true, that was one of the few things my veteran friends had told me; keep it in my pants and everything will be fine. They were right.
Wonder Woman looked pale when I told them my dirty details, "Bojo, New Girl didn't ditch Guy because he was engaged, she didn't want to fool around with him because she has the clap."
I died on the inside.
"You're....you're joking...right? Guys?"
The looks of seriousness on my friends face's cut through me like a laser. They were serious. It then hit me, all the shit WW and New Girl were talking about, the look of disbelief when she left the bathroom.
"Why didn't you warn me!" I shouted
"I didn't think you would fuck her!"
I was taken aback by that, "She had me handcuffed and was whipping me, why WOULDN'T I FUCK HER?"
"Did you at least wear a condom?"
>Oh shit
"Oh shit."
"You fucking moron."
The group around me began clapping, to applaud my idiocy and signal a new form of reminding me of the Blessing of Nurgle I had recieved.

Barbarian approached me, "Well dude, at least you made 5 bucks."

I'm glad my Minnesotan friends got me into conventions. Getting drunk in a hotel with a bunch of freaks for a weekend is fun as hell, and I always take a story or two home with me. This one is from anime detour, I think it was 2009.

My friend (Doc) drove up from Milwaukee the night before and crashed at a friends place in the cities. The next day we left early for the hotel so my friends could get their badges (I think the first time I actually got a badge was last year.) The first thing we'd do after getting to our room was unload all of our liquor onto a table. Each person would usually bring a handle or two, so we had about ten bottles of booze for six people. After getting unpacked, we'd all get together and take a couple 'start of the con' shots. But on this particular occasion, we started playing a drinking game.

>> No.20924026

We started drinking in the early afternoon, and before I know it, I'm drunk off my ass. Since there's no smoking in the hotel rooms, Doc and I decide to go outside to catch our breath. We make it down to the lobby, and are about to exit to the parking lot when a cute girl approaches us. We talk a little bit, and she asks if she can bum a smoke, but before I can give it to her, she gets real close and asks if I want to buy some extacy. I'm pretty drunk, so instead of just saying no, I ask how much it would cost to get some. She says 20 bucks a pill.

>> No.20924029


Ah, that is a mini leg quiver for Dry Erase Markers, the hoops and hoops next to it are for Pens and Pencils, or whatever you want to shove there.

The Six pockets across the top are for the major dice types, and the big pouch on the far left has sections inside of it, 3 of them so you can store mini figs in there, or whatever else, ALSO in the middle, is a pocket where you can keep Charactersheets! Folded twice, an normal 8x11 will fit in there, a bunch of them...

Is every thing a professional DM needs, Robe and Wizard hat not included.

>> No.20924035

Now, I've never purchased extacy before, and have no idea what a good price would be, but for some reason I thought 20 dollars was highway robbery. I call her a name and tell her to take her overpriced wares elsewhere. She got a little upset, and pushed me back a little bit. When she did this, I don't know what came over me. I put both my arms up and shoved her back, but I put a lot more force behind it than she did, and she wound up falling on her ass. Before I even think about what I did, she gets up and starts shouting at me. Now we're in the lobby of this hotel, and there's a crowd circling around us. She says something like, "Oh yeah? Wanna go asshole" To which I nod, take a step foreward, and rear back for a haymaker. I'm taking this bitch down. Before I get any closer, my friend Doc grabs me from behind and holds me in place. She started coming at me, and Doc thinks this girl is going to take some free shots on me, so he gets in the middle of us. He starts yelling for both of us to stop this, and we both say, "No, it's cool" The girl and I link arms, go out to the parking lot, and I bum her that cigarette.

Worst Times
> Gen Con Indy - bro warns me that some of the neckbeards can not into Hygiene.
> Think he's over exaggerating. Oh how wrong I was...
> Someone in the auction line *Literally* smelled like they had rotting animal carcases hidden on them.
> One of the THE MOST VILE smells ever.
> My bro looks at me and gagged out "I told you so!"

Other time
> At PAX East last year. Have great time with bro who lives in Boston
> Last night start to come down with nasty head cold.
> Bro's wife makes very nice dinner which I barely eat any of... (Feels bad man, she put a lot of effort into it.)
> Have miserable flight home, feel bad for everyone stuck next to me.

Favorite Con to date - PAX East in Boston.
> Go to restaurant a couple nights before Con starts with Bro and his friends from PA Forums.
> Whole roasted pig and damn near every flavor of Scotch know to mankind. Does NOT suck!
> Con - do damn near 3 days of straight board-gaming...
> 7-Wonders, Stone Age, Miskatonic School for Girls, and a butt-load more.
