I know the Ordo Malleus group out of Nanuet is coming for the FoW tournies. I can't make it due to work :(

Sigh. Flint and Feather Demo, with the incomparable, the improbable, the inexplicable Howard Whitehouse as GM. Lucky bastiches….

I'm leaving first thing in the morning. I'm going to be running a Dropzone Commander game Friday night.

Great time was had by all on Saturday, myself included.

Many good looking games with plenty of players in them. Not a surprise, since NJCON draws many of the best GMs in the Northeast. The HAWKS also made the ride up from MD.

The vendor room also looked busy. The "Bring and Buy" room was also packed.

Hope to see some pictures soon.

Had a great time this weekend. Awesome show!

However my computer died shortly after I downloaded all my photos from the show! Not good at all!
I'm hoping I can recover the hard drive… Wish me luck.

Another great convention!

Seemed like a good turn out to me, I really like this relaxed event. Only down side was some crazy guy on Friday night cursing and screaming about something he didn't like in the game he was playing, it's a game people, get over it. Had I been the GM I would have either told him to leave or had the convention staff toss him out. Guess there has to be at least one.,,

I posted some photos at link

Thanks for the photos, Michael.

Good luck with your hard drive, TRU.

I just posted pics from my Friday visit to the convention.


I had such a great time, and everyone was so friendly! I'll definitely be coming again next year!
