I was in the costume parade on Saturday behind a huge group of homestucks(Grey body paint and all) and holy shit they were bad.

I thought people were exaggerating how horrible they were

They literally slow marched down the center of the parade, holding their middle fingers in the air, reciting shit I assume was from the comic, and yelling obscenities.

Fuck big groups of them. I saw that group all con and they were almost never not being a nuisance

Minor thing but I want to see this thread grow fat with good stories.

I'm a backer on a few kickstarters, and it kind of sorta irks me to see games I backed for sale at gencon before I receive them. I mean, I'm happy that baby beastiary sold like hot cakes, but a part of me is sour because I supported it since its inception, and I'm not one of the first to get my hands on it.

It was large, but much of the events sucked this time around.
GWS had only a 10x10 booth and no demos, with AoS boxes taking up much of the FW booth

Palladium's Robotech tactics was being sold at regular price, after the 30% off coupon. Wave 2 delayed until the end of the year or next year due to engineering problems.
Some store called Geek Chic was in the mall selling gaming tables, art prints for $500+, and a knight statue made of spoons for $30k.
Hall was hot since they didn't turn on the AC until Wednesday, and some of those setting up suffered heat exhaustion.
Lines went faster this year for prereg, and walk in was empty as usual.
Some new giant robot game with 12" figures. Mek Wars or something like that.
Comic/Live action movie featuring the Duke, who has hand made over 7 million metal historical figurines in his lifetime was great. Sadly, the movie is brought down a bit by the quality of the comic art, but you can feel what they're trying to do with it. It's going to be a web series called War Room.
Less vidya in the game roim this year, and no Konami.
No releae date for Battletech Alpha Strike box, but they had a few plastic minis on display.
Grimtooth's Traps released in a nice paperback book containing all the old books plus historical info.
Many of the pony cosplayers from last year repurposed and moved on to furry or anime cosplay. The fat dude in the spandex white ranger outfit was there again.
True Dungeon didn't have enough volunteers and had some other minor issues.
No event took place after 3 am this year except mtg shit.
Police called because homeless dude off his meds attacked a few cosplayers.

Y-you get that I was being sarcastic, right? I mean, that *is* why people do it, but it's also retarded but I'm ever so slightly biased in saying that seeing as I'm a socialist, and this shit runs counter to the fundamentals of socialism.

That said, it's also because a lot of the people- especially girls- who get into nerdy shit are also into feminism shit (and no, I'm not equating feminism to SJWs, let's not start that flame war) because they're both "not mainstream" (despite this either rapidly shifting or already having shifted).

A tip for the both of you: $600 is the minimum amount of cash you should bring. This includes hotel costs, gas, and food. Go with 3 or 4 friends to reduce costs.

Downtown hotels in Indy during con time are about 100-150 a night, figure you arrive the night before and leave the day after and that's 5 nights of stays for about 750. Food is also a bit spendy at the convention and all the trucks outside, so unless you go out of our way 10 bucks a meal twice a day knocks it up another 100 or so. Say you have badge and ticket costs of about 150 and that's an even thousand before any games you buy.

I wouldn't say you need 2 grand, but if you're really into buying things as soon as you can, it's not a bad idea.

My first time I went, I did so pretty much blind. I had no idea how cons worked in general or what to expect, but I paid the daily cost and just started wandering.

There's all kinds of events going on throughout the day and all comes down to what you're interested in. If you like playing a certain game, there's almost always games going on that you can be a part of like Flames or Battletech, and now even video games like LoL and Hearthstone. There's traveling bards/minstrels/bands in the halls if you ever just want to chill out and watch a wookie play a cello. There's even movies and series playing at the Westin if you want to just sit down and take a break from the crowds and noise. The dealer room is huge and filled with booths you could literally spend all hours of the day in just looking at stuff and demoing games.

If I had to give advice, spend a day just walking around and taking it all in, that will honestly give you the best idea on how you'll want to spend your time. Some people really like scheduling things out and buying tickets based on schedules down to the minute, others just like hanging out with friends and bouncing around.

Good advice. I can back up all those price estimates.

One way we save money is to bring a FUCK load of snacks and beer with us. We've gotten lucky the last few years and had hotel rooms with fridges - but even without a cooler and a hotel ice machine will keep your beer cold JUST FINE.

Yeah, some of those hotels really push the line in what they actually offer. You'd probably be better off getting a flat rate motel 6, which you know will have a fridge and a microwave, and just bite the bullet with parking fees.

Wreaked my vocal cords from maintaining unnatural accents and animal sounds in several Cthulhu LARPs.
It's really hard to deliberately impersonate Rick Morranis for 2.5 hours, growl and snort like a hell hound, and the violently narrate an end-of-world scenario, and not feel it the next morning.

Was charmed as all get out by Two Rooms And A Boom. Might use it as a party game at my wedding. I can also see how it could blow up with home-brew mods.

I tried to maintain a count of every time I saw:

>My Little Pony ANYTHING (6)
>PokeMon ANYTHING (10)
>Link cosplay (5)

>Fedoras (8)

The Sun King Brewery con special was especially good. As a resident of NE MPLS, we take craft beer seriously, and this beer was incredible.

Observed a Geek Wedding at Union Station while helping run a Steampunk LARP. It was cute, but I suspect it would've been more special if there were less strangers attending it. Bride was also cute and busty.

Don't True Dungeon, but got a status report from members of my group who do. End grade was poor. "That Guy" room GMs, really weak puzzles, and not enough interesting use of technology. TD needs to step up next year, from what I've gathered.

The models you choose to paint and the cards you choose to play are influenced by your culture, and the politics that both created that culture and were influenced by that culture. Where the cards aND models were made were influenced by the economy, which is controlled by political action. The choice of whether or not you spend money on these things or just pirate/3-D print them is also an inherently political act. You may not consensually participate in politics, but you are always making political acts.

>>41651279

Of course you don't, socialism in a vaccuum is just a catch all term for variations on a certain kind of economic system. And yet the games you play came from the fiction you read that came fro the culture you live in, which is hand in hand with the political structure of the present and the past political structures that influenced the present. Politics and ideology leaks into every single thought and opinion we have, even the most banal. The reason people are freaking out about this stuff is because the latest generation is finally seeing just how deep this rabbit hole goes, and it can be immensely exhausting.

I do not want my games to have a political bent to them (not the same thing as not wanting to play a political game, of course). This does extend to socialism, even though I am a socialist. Sure, *I* might want to start a socialist revolution in 1520s Germany, but that's only because...that's what was actually happening in 1520s Germany.

Because such people are sad and pathetic individuals. Even more so than people on /tg/. Let that sink in.

We define ourselves by our hobbies, silly though they may be. But we create and express ourselves, we grow our community, and we teach others to have fun. For the most part we contribute positively to humanity, even if only in a narrow niche, and excepting the occasional That Guy. Because we DO THINGS.

People that define themselves by politics, though? They don't even do anything of value to anyone, their sole value lies in being a drone that recites the correct doctrines. A normal person (even us) identify themselves by what they DO; "I paint minis", "I run a boardgame club", "I'm an electrician", "I referee little league hockey". SJW types, they are so devoid of any identity, they have to align themselves with an exterior identity, not by what they DO, but what they FEEL.

Get a hotel like 20-30 mins away from indy (carmel, fishers, greenfield, greenwood, etc.) and drive in, saves so much from hotels in downtown, parking is cheap, restaurants are cheaper farther out, then bring however much you want to spend, so I'd say around 1.2k if you do that.

I haven't been to Dragoncon, but Gencon this year was a major letdown with almost every event priced at least $2-4 in generics, and nothing going on between 2-8 am except MtG. Maybe it's because of the shit some guests pulled due to RFRA. I know some authors and companies aren't doing anything with Indiana any more because of it.

Or Hasbro, which owns the con, severely overestimated how much shit bronies are willing to put up with and are trying to recoup losses from selling their TV network and the failing pony series since the network aired the same damn advertisement every week.

Or because D&D isn't selling as well due to the low quality of 5E books with misprints of abilities and maps in everything released so far.

Or they're not making enough tranny bucks having that futa mage in MtG.
Who the fuck knows?

The trannies at the con that were there were mostly annoying as fuck and worse than the homestuck players, with the exception of the one demoing the 3d tabletop in one of the hotels.

That sounds like the same sort of bullshit we put up with. We got one puzzle because the clue was really good. But this lava puzzle.. It's such bs man. Like you have to jump from letter to letter and i do it in the right order spelling "second" out, but i jumped from e to the other side. He said i fell in and was back at the start. He *should* have let me stay but made me jump on the s before continuing. Then we could have rushed everyone else across. It was just bad dming and kind of railroady. Also there's no way to get the treasure for that one without knowing the answer instantly because getting two stones wrong destroys it. I couldn't use my grappling hook to get across. I was allowed to use a club to test stones, but it still counted for treasure destruction.

All in all an infuriating experience. Like playing dnd with a dm who barely thought through his puzzles. Just frustrating. We felt like we lost at every step. I got injured during combat because someone else knocked my slider into a rock on the picture.

Nah, if anything it felt like there was less.

The Anime side of things has actually shrunk rather drastically in the past five years or so. Since the move to the Westin for their programming, it's rather out of sight for most viewers, but they've been rather stagnant since then.

Speaking of, what the heck is up with Mysterium? Every day I'd see a huge line at the Asmodee' booth and eventually someone would come out and say "We only have 10 copies of Mysterium left for today" and half the line would leave.

Made Top 8 in the Marvel Legendary 10k after literally learning the game in the first round of the tournament (granted, it's yet another deckbuilder). Didn't make Top 5, though, so they'll mail me a check for less than $100 a month from now. Yay. Also, Oomba is hot turd.

Played in the NSDM Doomsday Scenario as Russia. People seemed surprised when our team built a Doomsday Device.

Got a bunch of prerelease Malifaux stuff and then lost the GenCon promo in my hotel room because an unboxed individually packaged mini is tiny.

Only thing for sale was the sci-fi Twilight Knight pinup, which will eventually make it's way to the store. Playing demos you could win items. If you mentioned you were a backer they'd just give you both of them(One item was for losing to the lion, the other for winning).

$600 is the minimum definitely. We stayed off site, parked every morning at 7-8, and had a blast. Even ate St. Elmo's. Of course I only spent about $200 on games this year, so if there's a ton of shit you want bring more money.

>>41648728

That's where you fucked up. They want to go somewhere else they take a cab or walk. Our group always settles gas and parking fees beforehand(split it 4 ways). You park once, stay all day, cough up $20 at night when you leave. Only thing the car does is hold your shit when you drop it off. Circle Center Mall has the best garage IMO. $22/day of you stay more than 12 hours like we do though.
