Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Fishman in San Francisco! (NorCalPAX over, it was awesome)
So, it seems like the tentative plan is to hit up the Santa Cruz boardwalk on Saturday the 6th with as many forumers who care to make it. The more the merrier! If you need something arranged for transport, speak up so that we might arrange it.
Anyway, if you could make this/need transport/can't come/wish to whine, post about it in here and we'll try to finalise the details.
I'll try to keep this updated with attendees and events and what have you, but I'll have to work with the 24-odd hours of travel time I'm going to have starting tomorrow.
Boring original Original Post:
So... uhhh, well, it turns out I'm getting a paid trip to the continental United States in just a few weeks. Well, actually next week. On the 3rd of June.
The details are boring (let's just say I'm totally not smuggling drugs inside any bodily orifices. Totally), but the upshot of it is I've added 5 days of holiday onto the trip, so I've got 5 days to fill with, well, I'm not sure what there is to do around there. I think there's a bridge, and some kind of wharf with seals or something, and maybe the headquarters of starfleet? Look, this all happened on extremely short notice. I've got a copy of Lonely Planet San Francisco, I'm sure I can read it on the 14 hour plane flight over.
Anyway, seeing as I'm so rarely in the same hemisphere as 99% of the people on these boards and a good number of people have, at least in the past, indicated that they would like to know if I was ever within a Wook-rape minimum safe distance from them, I thought I might give a heads up to let people know I'd be around and see if anyone had any suggestions of how I might spend this time (other than join starfleet).
I thought I might spend it, you know, seeing tourist sights (which ones? suggestions go here), hang with friends, maybe catch up with a few forum-type people, play vidjagames or something. For the far-too-nosy crowd, Moriveth has helped organise me some accommodation for the trip down by him in San Jose.
So yeah. San Francisco & San Jose.
Also looking forward to D&D with Dubh, DE?AD, et al. on Sunday.
