    Sorry for the lack of updates as I have been out of town for the past week. Everything should be fully updated now including any PMs I have received. The biggest news right now is that Team Red Group A is permanently closed barring anyone dropping out.

    To browncoatbeath, chinhang, ky13, metatron: I moved you all to Group B since I was not around when Group A filled up. Group B is almost as good as Group A. Like store brand cereal or Megablox. If this is an issue please let me know and we can get you changed to another team.


    awww, sadness. i heard group A was where the invincible livers belonged... ;)

    Don't worry, you will not be disappointed by the B Team.

    sweet. it's probably best i'm not starting with the A team anyway given it's my first year for the crawl. gotta ease a toe in before i jump. ;) so the B team's super-solid-but-perhaps-not-life-threatening approach will be good. :)

    I hate to break it to you, but the B in Team B stands for Brofessional. You feel free to keep your own pace, but there are some serious drinkers on B. I've drank with Atlus a number of times and he has yet to drink me under the table.

    I think the true decider is which team fat_idiot will end up on, as he drinks with such determination that even I feel a bit humbled.


    Also, I see that you are from NC. Can you please bring Scotts bbq sauce and some hush puppies? I shall barter using lobster rolls or perhaps chowder.

    Group A is indeed the home of invincible Livers, but you can be the immortal livers.

    Yes! Team B ftw! Though... my liver is anything but immortal. It will probably disown the rest of my body Friday morning. Luckily, though, I've never had a hang over to date (despite blacking-out, and other drunken disasters), so hopefully that will remain true.

    Well... maybe it's better to say that I haven't had a ~physical~ hang over. I've had some mental ones... that inevitable "Oh my god...what the hell happened last night?" moment.

    A Wild Snorlax Appears!

    Alright Pokecrawlers, I have come here to issue a warning to you all. Somewhere along your path you may encounter the dreaded Snorlax. This sleeping Pokemon has been known to block the path of many Pokeventurers in the most inconvenient ways. Your encounter may be no different, and on your way to battle Mewtwo you may have to come up with creative ways to move this beast from your path.

    Should you encounter Team Snorlax on your journey towards the final battle, your further progression will be blocked. You will then need to coax Team Snorlax to move from your path.

    More details to come.

    I would like to point out that at Prime, the green team, @SlytherinTWDT, was the only team awesome enough to have its own twitter account. ^5 to the most awesome team. We have already won.

    :lol: yes that is over 300. If the rosters fill up it should be 400 folks. Be prepared to be stared at curiously by the general public as you move along in the crawl. Afterall, 100 people moving together in a group dressed alike is not a common sight. You should have seen the looks we were getting at Prime 2010 on the TWDT. We were stopping traffic.

    It's going to be a blast.

    Everyone was looking at us like they knew something fun was going on, but that they could not be a part of it. Big sad puppy-dog eyes.

    That said, we would have happily welcomed any muggles into Ravenclaw that wanted to tag along. The more the merrier!

    I'm not sure on the rules, but there is a Team Snorlax in place if you jump back a couple pages of the thread. They sound like a very exciting/welcoming bunch, if it turns out you can't be on a team (or if you decide on your own to forego the "official" teams)

    heh

    it's a bit of a logistical nightmare ... Boston is pretty busy on Thursday nights and there aren't exactly a ton of large bars.

    I think the route this year is looking fairly good, just need to hear from a few bars to confirm some info ...
