View Full Version : The DDO Party @ Gencon Indy



Merlask

A reminder to those going to the DDO party @ Gencon that the party location is now at Jillians.

Previously, the party was to be located at the Spaghetti Factory. However, as more and more of you are coming forward, I have opted to splurge and relocate the party over to Jillians! There will be


A private roped off area for the DDO players on the game room floor
Appetizers for you to enjoy free of charge (though anything beyond what I have pre-ordered for you, you will have to purchase seperately, and drinks must also be purchased seperately from the bar)
Activies that your non-DDO friends/spouses can enjoy within Jillians - or even you if you like - such as the game room, bowling, billiards (bowling and billiards availability depends on if another group has that section on reserve or not)
Very convenient access to the bar... our area will be right near it!
Jillians is still within walking distance of the convention center
I will still have the Turbine prizes and souveniers for you (and I'm still not telling you what those are yet )
No gencon badge rerquired to get in and attend the party
Your family - for those with spouses and children - are welcome to attend! Feel free to drag along your friends who might not play DDO, or are thinking of trying it.


Date and time are still the same: Saturday, August 18th, 7pm EST
(for information about what/where Jillians is, you can visit their website for an overview at www.jillians.com )

PLEASE NOTE THAT AFTER 9:00PM EST, JILLIANS BECOMES 21 AND UP FOR THOSE OF YOU UNDER AGE!!

Why the change:


Because you all are worth it.
Originally I was trying to be a bit conservative, and I wasn't so certain how many folks would even be interested in something like this (especially considering all the things there are to do at Gencon). I have come to realize that this was fast outgrowing my original location. I also came to denote that I spend about 20-40 hours a week with you all, and that you are a very big part of my life... whether I intended it to be that way or not. How often do I get the chance to spend some true face-to-face time with you? Little to none. This means hosting the party in a way/location that is worthy of you. What more appropriate place for a gamer's party than at a gaming facility?

So... as this will be a once in a lifetime opportunity, I wanted to give you all the biggest and best party I possibly could, in every conceivable way that is within my power to grant you.

What I need:

If you all would be so kind... if you are planning on attending this party PLEASE PLEASE respond to this thread and let me know, so that I can keep a more accurate head count for the poor folks at Jillians. Even if you just plan on swinging in/out for 10 minutes on your way to another gencon activity, please let me know. Remember also that you need not have a badge to the convention to get into this party. If you are local to the Indianapolis area, or just in that sort of mood to drive out for this, you are more than welcome to just come for the party without going to gencon at all! Think of this as a mini-ddo convention fan-fair ^^

In the next couple weeks I will have another special little treat for you related to this, so keep watching the forums / listening to DDOCast!

Hey Merlask,

This is the first I heard about a DDO party at GenCon. My brother, a buddy of ours and myself (all DDO players) will be at GenCon this year and are interested in attending the party. What do we need to do to get on the invite? 10,000 platinum? A vorpal?

Thanks,
Kinjal

What is Gencon:

Listen to last half of the podcast episode from DDOCast (http://files.techsol.org/cyberears/audio/1639.mp3)and all the answers will unfold for ya on 'what is gencon' (eh...except ignore the part where I talk about the location being at the Spaghetti Factory... that has subsequently changed)

It is episode 22, where I guest hosted that week, and the explaination for Gencon occurs in the later part of that podcast after the commercial break. You can also access it by www.ddocast.com and select from the episode list on the right hand side. You can play through a media player or you can click/save the mp3

Basically it is a gaming convention is the SHORT story, now located in downtown Indianapolis.

You need nothing to attend the party! I have picked a location for the party that enables you to get into the party even if you DONT buy a badge for the gencon convention! Jillians is located outside of - but near - the convention center :D There will be snacks, if you're in the mood for drinks you can hit up the bar (sorry gang I sprang for food only for ya), and I will have official Turbine doorprizes to give away. There will also be some special guests, and I have other activities and surprises that I will announce veeeeeeeeeeery soon for ya, such as a fun game I call 'spot your fellow DDOer'

Our reserved area will be a roped off area on the game room floor specifically for DDO players near the bar

Count one more as going to be there. Too bad though, Spaghetti Factory has great food/prices.

Merlask
07-28-2007, 10:46 AM
yeah I actually really like their food too, but I think we'll be a little too many/too rowdy and loud for their tastes hehehe. The Jillians ppl will be more or less 'used' to a buncha loud drunk gamers :D

Thank you so much for setting this up, Merlask!

Alas, I probably won't be able to go this year :(

Do you know if Turbine will be there?

I caught wind of the part when you first mentioned it on the DDO site. I'm glad they gave you a forum here :)

Many thanks for the shindig, Merlask :D

Looking forward to Geek Fest this year!

any way we can get a tape or some video of this? i wanna see the face that goes along with the voice, merlask! And if there is a guest apperance by any of our devs or "yay" gary, Im sure the rest of community will feel left out.

Merlask
07-29-2007, 10:49 AM
Eh I'm not so sure about audio recording, but I had planned on taking many pictures for you all, which I'll post post-trip... but I'll see if maybe I can't get some short video clips (no sound, sorry guys, I went for optical zoom and not video capabilities on my camera lol)

Plus I'm sure other players will perhaps have some cameras that DO record sound, and maybe they'll be kind enough to take some footage too and put it up for us to see!

BuzzSaw
07-29-2007, 11:56 AM
I will do my 100% best to be there, but I cannot guarantee anything since maybe one of my multi-part session might conflict.

But if I do not have a conflict, count on me being there!

Might bring my guild mates too! But I do not know their schedules at this point yet.

I know, useful right ?

Anyway, count me in!

I was wondering way back, whether GenCon would have a Turbine/DDO showing.

I stopped looking after I saw that the one day badge was $30+.

I am a big visitor to GenCon, going 10+ times since 1995 (my first GenCon in Milwaukee) and even was part of the Virtual GenCon team led by Mark Jindra, of WotC.

Great times, and great friends.

I will be there, and I will get others around me locally as well.

I'll instruct them to sign up here as well.

Thanks for doing this!

Sincerely,

Shaamis
08-01-2007, 01:14 PM
whats Gencon? :p

BLASPHEMY!

GenCon is THE role-playing game convention.

It also has a lot of other stuff, like board games, Anime, collectible card-games, fantasy/Sci-Fi actirs and personalities, and Live Action roleplaying.

It has a lot of new video game booths, and a growing MMO section.

AWESOME. To rub shoulders with your favorite Professional Wrestler, actor, Sci-Fi personality, game-designer, and playin some of the newest games, playtest and win rare versions of games, and be involved in world-wide gaming competitions, GenCon is it!

hehehhe and yes I have to confess that gencon is a BLAST for all things gamer ^^

Shaamis

ryan, stop bragging about going to gencon and come do some scale runs before the server dries up! :) lol

I do enjoy DDO very much, take offense to people that poo-poo it, and have just as much fun looking for that cool set of armor, than adventuring.

I will do some scale runs, I just have to get Shaamis to leave the bar, and THAT is a high-level quest in itself!

PS: Merlask, will there be a wi-fi connection, cuz I might be able to bring a webcam and slap it on my laptop, and see what we can do for everyone not able to go to GenCon

It's a thought.....

Sincerely,

Merlask
08-01-2007, 07:01 PM
I'm not sure about wi-fi at Jillians or not... or in Indy for that matter. I know in my home town, there is a section of the city that is free wi-fi but don't know who else is following suit

Post Script: have some more party announcements for you folks, just hang in there

Gonna seriously get some ppl motivated to get there myself as there is quite a few DDO ppl located in/around the Cleveland area here :D


Hey Shaamis, I'll load a keg into the trunk for backup when u drink the bar dry!! NOW how bout that ride? :P

I tried finding the exact address of the Jillian's but didnt have much luck from their website.

i'd like to get parked as close as possible to it, do you have the address?

Thanks for any help.

Mockduck

Jillians

141 South Meridian Street
Indianapolis, IN 46225


Parking right by Jillians can be a little tough on weekends as its located near a bunch of other places where people like to hang out, but there's a whole bunch of lots within a block or two from there - just look for the parking signs. There is some street parking as well, but it goes quick.

Mockduck
08-14-2007, 09:21 AM
You can also walk there pretty easy from the convention center if you are actually attending GenCon. Just go outside and head east until you hit Meridian Street. Jillians is easy to spot.

Merlask
08-14-2007, 10:37 AM
Yeah your two best bets for parking for Jillians are:

- The mall garage located beneath the convention center, then walk over

or

- If you feel like a bit mroe of a jog (and in past years, a cheaper rate) the above ground government garage that is directly across from the main convention center entrance (Marriotte is next to it) is another good one. You'll jsut have to walk a couple blocks if you park there

Not really sure if coming or not. I'm attempting to drag guildy along if I do since we are both local.

Hey Merlask and all,

Looks like there might be four of us here droppin by. 3 of us play DDO (me more than the other two) and 1 who we can't seem to get off his Dial up arse and get into the swing of things.

Hope to see you there.

I am afraid to report that I was unable to obtain a Teleport Without Error spell and therefore cannot participate in the festivities. I wish all the celebrants the best! Roll a d20 for me at the convention and related parties! (And don't forget to perform your best in-character dance emote!)

That would be awesome. Get some people in beholder and troll outfits. Hand out nerf swords to the party-goers. Have the monsters run into Jillians. Everyone starts whacking the costumed. The wait staff at Jillians thinks, "oh.my.god.why did I agree to work on Saturday!"

Dood. That thing was freaking DISGUSTING looking.

For anyone who wasnt there: She made a drink 'The Waterworks' - and it looked like sewage. The only thing it needed was a terd floating in it to complete the visual.

I dont care WHAT it tasted like ;)

Great seeing all of you at the party, sorry I didnt stay for "the waterworks" taste test, I would have downed it on a dare, just to keep the "Kegtapper" legacy going......

I have completed a list of items that Shaamis has collected from various locations around his "house".

These items are all up for "grabs"

Rules:
1) Everyone that wants to play will get a piece of paper to write their name, and the character's name they wish to have their "prize" sent to (after Gencon)
2) One grab per player.
3) All are in-game items/collectibles/plat, no RL rewards (this year....)
