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

@Brant:  Re: Commitment to playing one game, "they" are coming for sure, right?

Wow, I would have thought it would be too late by now. I snagged a room as soon as they started taking reservations.  :o

I've for whatever reason abandoned hope of being close a couple years ago.

The family and I stay at the Hyatt Place not too far away and we've never had a problem.

Free breakfast is nice, parking is included, and the walk is now familiar.

If I drive to Origins (highly likely) I'm going to take a sack of books with me.  I have horrible allergies and paperbacks are printed on cheap paper which deteriorates over time.  I've been discarding physical books and picking up ebooks.  Ah, the sweet, sweet non-smell of electrons.

Anyway, I'll drop off the books at the Grogheads booth (if Brant allows) and let people pick up what they will.  As we get closer to Origins and I'm confirmed that I'll be driving, I'll post a list and people can preclaim and/or nerd fight over them.

I've just submitted "Baltimore Gang War" for the rogue Cthulhu track at origins.

Those with a firm grip on their sanity are welcome to play!

Could you put that in English or Haiku?

Larry Correia (Monster Hunter International, Grim Noir series) will be coming to Origins.

I hope he will have a signing, but he is an avid gamer and may just be there to play.

I think he’ll be there to pimp his new Monster Hunter RPG and minis-combat games.

Quite possibly, but he is also an avid gamer.  His kids are also.

I think Origins 2018 will be trousers-mandatory.

Floating that out there for further deliberation.

^Yeah, but it's so far down the list to play that the shrink wrap is still on it.  :-[
