Kurt: That's just a racial ability you have.

Oh!  Thanks, Jess.  Time to start hounding Derek about having some sort of presence at the con.

looking into having a presence myself there
Children yet, the tale to hear, Eager eye and willing ear, Lovingly shall nestle near.  In a Wonderland they lie, Dreaming as the days go by, Dreaming as the summers die: Ever drifting down the stream --Lingering in the golden gleam --Life, what is it but a dream?

I ordered passes for Jess and I last night. It's a great con to have a presence at, the tabletop section was really popular last year (and at PAX Prime as well), plus a lot of new players who want to check out stuff besides video games. At both East and Prime this year, there were a ton of people who were new to D&D and excited to check it out. I know WotC's "Learn to Play" games had huge lines at PAX East last year, and at Prime, they were packed out as well. Also, the board game borrowing section was really popular and I know people were scrambling to pick up the popular ones from the few vendors that were there last time.

It's the only con I've been to where I've been super excited to go back again.

What are the odds of you guys moving a WoW night down to Plainville sometime in October?  If it's too much trouble maybe I'll swing by Abington some Thursday night, chat, and raid with you guys.

I'd really like to talk to you and Jess about PAX.

In all honesty the likelyhood of me driving from Weymouth to Plainville after getting home from work is pretty low as much as I miss you :)
It would be about 40 minutes with no traffic, I have no idea where the other peeps live relative to the Plainville store.

Hell I bought unpainted minis for the first time and we got more WoW cards... people buy just to buy.

Yeah, it's a tough haul for a work night.

We were thinking of checking out the Plainville store though since it looks pretty cool. We'd probably check it out on a weekend of something. I think Jess mentioned that going to the grand opening weekend.

@Chase, I know it isn't the same as getting to chat with the others about PAX but I'm happy to run a WoW Raid sometime.  Kurt had me run Molten Core last time we played in Abington (I think during PAX West) and I had fun...don't know how well I did but it was enjoyable.

I e-mailed the guy mentioned on the link you supplied and requested some information. So far, I haven't heard back from him yet.

Is PAX East in the same location as last year (Back Bay)? I was having lunch with Garet Jax, and we saw all these people dressed like Anime characters. I will definately swing by on my lunch, or just take a vacation day.
