When conflicts do occur, can always drop back by after. In all the years the Gatherings have taken place, we have yet failed to close the place down.

Apparently the gurus of Gen Con are thinking about adding a second con per year.

A survey on the topic is here:

As the count-down continues, am curious if any of the Powers will be dropping by this year.

Last year, Coco's appearance was enjoyed with stories from the QA corner.

81 days and counting, but who's counting anyway :)

Also, Event Registration is on Sunday at Noon (EST) for those looking to get events!

Looking forward to dropping by (Even though I"m super shy, I know I have a podcast and I'm shy, makes no sense eh)

Due to a change of events in August, I'll not be attending Gen Con this year, and will therefore be missing the Gathering™.

I'll still monitor this thread and keep it active so everyone has a point of reference.

Couple of interesting tidbits arrived in the GenCon newsletter.

Can now buy parking spaces - 1-day or multi-days!

And they're gonna set up an old-fashioned arcade along a public hallway. Quarter op. Not those new-fangled monstrosities that take a dollar or more per play. :)


Gen Con 2016 will feature an old-school Coin-Op Arcade on the Pedestrian Corridor from the Indiana Convention Center to Lucas Oil Stadium. This is an all-new attraction in an all-new space. Approximately 16 classic arcade machines will line this area, and one quarter is all you need to relive your childhood gaming memories. Perhaps, this will be your first chance to try classic digital gaming?! This area is not far from the Exhibit Hall, so it won't even require a platform jump or a power pellet to get here. Bring your quarters!

Indeed. Especially as they [the arcade machines] will be placed in a common hallway so can be accessed without a GenCon badge, and will be available 24 hours.

Most of our crew or guild members from the Knights Templars guild on the cannith server will be attending on Saturday. Most of us live in or around the Indy area. Only the ones out of the country will not be attending.

Keep moving west. Most populous state in the Union is California and it also has the best looking people.

I'll be making my GenCon rounds again this year armed with ddo dice bags and drow minis. I maaaay have a schedule conflict though during the traditional friday night bar meet up, so worse case I'll try to make my presence known on Twitter a few times throughout the event and maybe we can revisit the bar on a different night.

Welp, as of this august it's almost a decade of time spent with this game and its fans for me (and a decade of existence for my DDO characters as of May heh). DDO's a life long love ^_^ My secret nerd goal is to reach the point in time where more of my years on this planet have been spent with DDO in my life than without hehehe.

I and a few others from our guild will be at Gen-Con this Saturday.
Question about the gathering for buffs though, I noticed it is for the Friday night. Is there going to be one for the Saturday night and if so how will I know those from DDO? Will you all be sitting under a banner or something lol?

We've never had a banner or anything since it became a non-official event. (I never thought to ask Jerry if I/we could borrow one.) Usually at least some of us would wear our DDO t-shirts to help identify our group.

This year there may be extra gathering times. Looks like Twitter is the media to watch for info.

Everyone: Don't forget to stop back by here during/after any gathering to post pix! :)
