    Default GenCon 2010: DDO Party / Meetup...

    So with all the new found fame and fortune that has come to Turbine and its Reincarnated baby called DDO...what's the likelyhood that you all (Turbine) will be hosting a party this year? Will we have to plan our own again? Just wondering

    Thanks!

    does Turbine usually go to GENCON?

    Gencon is in August. I would think (unless they were planning way out), anything Turbine has planned would still be in the preliminary stages. They might have a space, but no defined idea of what they will do exactly. At least, not anything that is ready for public consumption. I would guess August would be about the time we see Half-Orcs, but thats just a guess.
    The problem is never how to get new, innovative thoughts into your mind, but how to get old ones out. Every mind is a building filled with archaic furniture. Clean out a corner of your mind and creativity will instantly fill it.

    Last year Turbine was NOT there. Korthos and NPE were the year before. We had to get a party together at Jillians. Tolero was nice enough to convince her bosses to give her some promo stuff and she showed up on her own.

    Now that WB has it's hand in the DDO jar, what does this mean for the DDO Party at Gencon?

    Will it be a large one like year 3 where they gave out DDO/LotRO shirts, and free drinks, or like last year, where one-two reps showed up with free ddo point cards, (but STILL a LOT of FUN).

    Shaamis will be there Hell or High water anyway, I just need to know how many people I am going to dance drunk in front of.

    I also will have a budget specifically for drinks
    Shaamis is REBORN!

    Indeed.
    All of the above.


    Well, except the dancing part. I never did get drunk enough for that!


    maybe this year....

    Time to start mixing drinks Shaamis, we will have to test out some new recipes this year, and find some stronger ale, that stuff you guys drink down there is way too weak, if only I could smuggle some Canadian beer there....hmmm.....

    I have a strong suspicion that they will do something big this year.


    As for Drinks, be sure to check out the Official DDO Drink List thread in my signature.

    I remember asking them about this at PAX East but didn't get a definitive answer. Something along the lines of, "we're still working on our convention schedule."

    But, like last year, it doesn't take Turbine to get a bunch of DDO players together! We'll be hanging out (probably at Jillians) no matter whether Turbine's there or not. I thought last year went great!

    Shaamis will be there on Friday night or Saturday night, but if I drink like I did last year, I might need someone to carry me out!

    I think I am going to be there weather I want to be or not. I was told there will be a package at my door before I go to GenCon of things I have to give away to fellow DDO players.

    Sorry. Not trying to make it sound bad.


    Don't think she'll be sending me much to give away, but Thelanis' Cookie Queen Jaggie will not be making it to GenCon this year. So she might have a few things for me to give to random people.

    We'll see if I can make it this year...my husband has told me that I'm going, but I'm not sure he realizes what all that entails.
