I was appalled at the quality of the game masters at the last one.  :P

He didn't even clip the counters for the games I was running.

Oh, I don't know.  I had several drunken phone calls from mirth trying to talk him in to driving to Origins and out of whining about how he was going to have to work.

My Call of Cthulhu scenario was accepted by Rogue Cthulhu so I'll be going as a "club member" this year.  I'm not sure if I'll run more than one session of my scenario.  I could also run Eldritch Horror - but I probably won't so I can play more games myself.

You were a Cthulu playin' fool in June.  When I met you Sunday morning, you had been at it since Wednesday.  That's some dedication, brother!   O0

It galls me that I need to reserve a room this flipping early, but I really should get around to that.

No, not for sure.  No one is "for sure" until there's a deposit down.

I'm trying to make it happen, but we have to make it happen w/in the framework Origins has given us  :-\
