Hi, all,

I'm actually a member of Echo Base, but I attend Gen Con every year and was wondering if the RL has plans for a presence there. If so, would you all mind if I trooped with you at some point during the weekend? It would be my first troop, in all probability, so you'd have to be gentle with me Wink.

Thanks!

GenCon is, as one member once told a reporter, "Practice" for dragon Con. Mos Espa and Bloodfin always try to get together for a day of trooping, seeing the sights, and of course visiting the ram for some fun. We welcome all fans, weather rebel, empire, or nef herder. The more the merrier.

I dream of some day making Dragoncon.

But I will def. be at Gen Con. What would the procedure be for meeting up with you guys? Bear with me if I'm asking stupid questions--I apologize. As I said, never trooped before. Not sure what all is involved.

I usually can be found at Gen Con wandering around. I think it was last year we had a Picture shoot with a ton of RFT's

You may wanna hook up with the Hoff on this, see if there are plans to do it again this year.

We're in the pre-planning discussion area right now, but there might be some fun trooping opportunities coming and our standard Saturday nite debauchery at The Ram. I'll post here when specifics are up, but also feel free to join us on starwarsindiana.com to stay up to date Smile

For those coming to GenCon and bringing costumes, there were be a troop all weekend at Scotty's Brewhouse a couple blocks away from the convention center. They'd like to have SW characters there Thurs-Sunday evenings at least at this point but might expand on Saturday and Sunday.

There'll be a photo area for charity, special stuff for kids, a couple special incentives and possibly some surprise guests, but I'll have more info as it gets closer. If you're coming into town and would like to troop if you're bringing costumes (SW or otherwise as long as they look good) post here, PM me, or come join up on starwarsindiana.com and introduce yourself!

Sounds good! Saturday is my birthday and I'm supposed to be hooking up with friends...but my preference is to go to the Ram, so maybe I will see you guys there. I would like to try and hook up to troop for a little while at least once during the con...my plan (which never survives contact with the enemy) is to cosplay at the con with three different costumes on three different days...though only one of them (my Jedi) is RL-approved at the moment. The second (my Han Solo costume) needs some tweaking before it's ready, but it's good enough to wear for fun at the con, and the third is my Imperial Knight (assuming I can finish it).

Yeah, just let me know what day you think you can troop, Jason, and I'll write your name down, thanks!

Lemme check my event schedule (I'm attending a ton of writing seminars). By when do you need to know?

What are the rules for trooping at GC so far as time commitment goes? It looks like I have seminars every day--here is my schedule of events:

WKS1009699 (The Rules of Writing - Thursday at 04:00PM)

WKS1009735 (21 Days to a Novel - Friday at 04:00PM)

WKS1009892 (How to Make a Living as a Writer - Saturday at 01:00PM)
WKS1009898 (Characterization - Saturday at 03:00PM)

WKS1009911 (The Business of Writing - Sunday at 11:00AM)

It looks like Saturday is out, but Thursday or Friday could work, so long as I could still attend the seminars (they were a bit pricey and are with Michael Stackpole, who always hosts great seminars).

Thursday and Friday trooping will be in the evenings, so you should be okay. I'll have a schedule in another week or two.

I'm coming up probably Friday night and staying until Sunday around noon or so. Not sure WHAT I am bringing costume wise. Maybe pilot but maybe Jill Valentine from RE

Never been, just figured its only about 5 hours away and Q and Otter are going and might beat me if I dont come visit.

Great, put me down for Thursday, if you would! Probably best to meet everyone as early as possible Smile

Also, it looks like my birthday plans fell through (if you can believe it, EVERYONE I normally go to GC to see is not attending this year), so if you all are heading to the Ram on Saturday evening, ok if my wife and I join the fun?
