All packed up and set to head off tomorrow to the Burlington, Vermont, area for the Northeast Wars convention. I attended last year and it’s a nice little con. I’m slated to run some M&M games, do a seminar, and a podcast interview. This year’s con is held at a hotel associated with the New England Culinary Institute, so there should be some good eats to go along with the weekend of geekery.
Plans are set for me to make my record fourth trip to Ohio this year for Con on the Cob in Akron, November 8-11. (For those keeping score at home, the other three were Pagan Spirit Gathering in June, Origins in July, and Between the Worlds in September; airport visits don’t count.)

I’m running various Green Ronin related events at the con, mainly as part of the “Massive Mutants & Masterminds Mega-Meet”. I’m sure there will also be much assorted geekery, some business-related talk and, you know, drinking and stuff. If you’re in the area, feel free to come on by and say hi.
We're out the door to the airport in about 10 minutes to catch our flight to Columbus. If we're going to see you there, see you soon (either at Origins, Pearls of Wisdom, or just in town). If not, we'll be back on Monday. Be good while we're gone!
Yay, I’m finally home! Had fun in San Jose, San Ramon, San Francisco, and New York City (not a “San” anything, and proud of it) but oh so glad to finally be home.

If I owe you a call or e-mail or something, expect it later this week. For now, unpacking and much settling back in to do. See ya!

From sunny and 70s California to icy New York City and the craziness that is New York Comic Con.

Green Ronin has a small booth at the con to fly the flag and get stuff like our M&M Beginner's Guide out in front of potential new superhero RPG players. I'm staying with [livejournal.com profile] freeport_pirate and [livejournal.com profile] iamnikchick at the New Yorker Hotel which is, as Nicole puts it, "old school" (in other words, small).

Yesterday (the first day of the con) was mostly made up of the "trade hours." The main hall opens at 10:00 AM, but only to people with professional badges: comic industry, media, publishing, etc. and the trade hours last for six hours until 4:00 PM, when the hall opens to the general public and stays open until 9:00. So it was a pretty slow first day, to say the least. Today the hall is open to the public all day from 10:00 AM until 9:00 PM, which makes for a long day.

Of course, when the Ronin get together, we eat well. Everyone in the company likes a good meal, and Nicole has been tracking down restaurants on her Palm Pilot. Thursday night was vegetarian Chinese, while last night, in contrast was Brazilian barbeque (meat on swords!). Dunno about tonight yet, but tomorrow night (post-con) we're planning on going to this restaurant specializing in cheese. The amount of choice is almost embarassing, although getting reservations can be the tricky part.

When I talked to Christopher yesterday, it sounded like his experience at ConVocation was going better (after being picked up late at the airport and put in a smoking room initially at his hotel). I'm really looking forward to us both being home soon.
