DDO Party @ Gencon Update!!

Normally I'm not one to throw around buzz words such as 'exciting' or 'most awesome thing ever' but...

Some very exciting surprises are in store for you for the party @ Gencon!

SPECIAL GUESTS:
In attendence at the party, we will have two very special guests! We will have Eldorudo and Silthe of Turbine!

SPECIAL BADGES:
Worried about how to spot your fellow DDO player at the party, or wandering around Gencon? I've created these special little badges for you (http://www.nemonon.com/assets/images/ddogenconbadge.pdf). I've measured them so that they will fit inside your badge holders when you print them out.

You can do one of 4 things with them

Simply print them off and you can slide them in the plastic holders (careful about covering up your gencon badge though... those badge ppl at the convention are picky).
Pin them to your outfit where others can see it
Laminate them or put them on sticky lables
Eat them (I don't recommend this one)


Don't want to mess with it? Have no fear... I've had some less nifty ones put onto sticker lables, and a marker will be handy for ya at the party.

SPECIAL PRIZES
We will have some very awesome things for you as gifts, but you're going to have to work for it!!

Game 1: The DDO Treasure Chest!
Merlask will offer you the chance to roll a d20 with her. Beat her roll, and get your choice of one of our gifts from the Treasure Chest! Some of the known drops from this chest include:

DDO T-Shirts
Copies of DDO signed by the development team
Framed & signed DDO Art
. . .and some other surprises!!

If you don't beat her roll, you'll get a D&D sticker, and she might let you keep the d20 ;)

Game 2: Fill The Raid
The first 25 players to approach Merlask and ask to be 'In The Raid' will receive a free ddo game card!

Game 3: The Best Badge
So I'm giving you these printed badges (http://www.nemonon.com/assets/images/ddogenconbadge.pdf), yes? The top 3 party goers, who are most creative with their display/use of their badge, will receive a special prize! No premature submissions however, I don't wanna see your ideas until the day of the party ^^

MISS THE PARTY?
If you see Merlask (http://www.nemonon.com/assets/images/genconmerlask.jpg)around the convention, still come up and say hello! Wear your badge so she can spot you! She may have a little something to offer you for saying hi! (I of course am the one in the purple dress :P ) I will have the black cavalier hat with the red feather, and you'll see me walking about with a man who has a soul patch (yes, husband's soul patch came before Varro's)

So here's to the party, and seeing you there! There may be yet some more surprises and contests/games that I haven't told you about. Details of the original party announcement can be located here (http://forums.ddo.com/showthread.php?t=115539)

oh you are SO on! Hopefully I will hear soon if I get my vacation approved and can find doggie sitters. If this works out I am thinking I might as well make it worth my while and get my Ironbutt certification! (ooo the pain I can already imagine)

You know, I hadnt intended to come to this, but since Silthe is going to be there, I absolutely have to attend! He is so dreamy!

Hrm, is there a ban on adult...umm..placement of the badges? Im sure I can talk Eldarin into doing something that will surely be a crowd pleaser.

Not to be nitpicky, (although that IS my job), but that other party is on Friday night and ours is on Saturday.

This of course doesn't mean we can't crash theirs, of course...

BAH! They have spies and are coping you...doing a day before to attempt to lessen the coolness of our party. All this is an attempt to kill DDO and save their dying Vanguard.

AND not informing me that specializing as a lumberjack would lead to emotional problems.* ..

And take many pix. ;)

Merlask
08-15-2007, 08:05 PM
don't worry... many MANY pics will be taken. My husband goes crazy when we go on vacation because I get a little shutter-buggy.

When we were on honeymoon, I asked him how many pictures I could take on the new memory card

Him: "At the max setting?"
Me: "Yeah... for the whole week."
Him: "Well I'll put it to you this way... you could take 80 pictures a day"
Me: "And I WILL!"

eh yeah and I did :X

I'll be sure to post the con pictures once we get back ^^

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!)

You would have to form into 12 man groups then. Preferably 3-5 man teams actually if you want to maximize loot... O wait...
