All right, got off the phone today with Jillians and it's a go.

Their private rooms are booked for events, but they said there would be plenty of room for our group to hang out, especially on the 2nd and 3rd floors. 2nd - drunken arcade, 3rd - drunken bowling.

So, let's make this OFFICIAL: The DDO Meetup at GenCon will take place on FRIDAY, August 14th starting at 7pm Eastern time until 10pm Eastern (or whenever, I'm sure some of us will be there all night). Just show up, no RSVP needed. Wear your DDO shirts if ya got em!

Let's gather on the 2nd floor, say hi and do whatever!

I'm putting this in a separate thread as well to make it easier to find.

Any questions? Send me an email at ddocast((((AT)))))gmail(DOT)com

I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed meeting everyone and seeing everyone again at the party this year! Me and my whole family had a GREAT time! The entire Gen Con Experience felt like I was coming back to see old friends!

My favorite part of the whole weekend had to be My experience playing *Zombie Busters* with my daughter, where she was a zombie buster and I was a zombie! It was great fun!!!!
My kids are already looking forward to next year!

*hugs all around

After downing "The Waterworks in two <GULP>s, Shaamis received this RAID LOOT from Tolero:

Then Shaamis moved on and defeated "The Big Green Monster" drink, and received this from Tolero:

http://i107.photobucket.com/albums/m285/mtmouse3/PIC-0187.jpg

Shaamis was pretty whooped after The Green Monster, so he drank a Healing Balm drink, and then was able to receive the final piece of raid loot from Tolero:

All in all, Shaamis was in rare form at the DDO Party, and had a GREAT time.

This is so true. It was great to hang with everyone, play games, run true dungeon, grab some drinks, take some pics and overall just have a blast with both the DDOcast crew and DDO players and friends in general! The past four days were really great. I miss y'all already!

Thanks everyone for coming out to Jillians, I thought it was a perfect way to spend Friday night.

Naw. I actually came out of Friday night hangover free - much to my surprise. :D TD was something new, and I was being "alert" for more jumping brush piles. ;)
Plus, new folks around.... kinda the same reason I rarely pug. :o


Besides, you know how the news stories go. Everyone the news crew interviews always says, "Well, he was a quiet man, really." :p

Not long enough. Some of us were still able to walk when we left... :rolleyes:

Or were being told it was time to go as they were being drug out of the bar. :rolleyes: I'm sure I had more time in me.

It was awesome meeting and talking with everyone. I think I spent too much time chatting with everyone, and not enough time taking pictures or sampling the drink list.

I too am already planning on next year. Gonna be there Wednesday night, so that I am not runnning around like a mad man agian, or is it too late for that?

It was truly an honor and pleasure meeting everyone, GenCon and the party was kind of like Christmas in the summer.

Til next year....
