I should remind everyone, that we have almost two full days at the con to finish entries, being that they are not due until 5:00 pm on Friday.

 

Immediately following last year's andrenaline-fueled sprint of Ma'al Drakar madness, I swore on my left boot I'd not bring any entry to the con that wasn't finished (barring touch-ups from traveling). I'm sticking to that too. I spent too much time last year with my dragon and not enough just hanging out with friends. :)

 

Huzzah!

Speaking of Growtix, any ideas on how to cancel a class? I accidentally scheduled myself out of the factory tour again.

Has the schedule for the factory tours been announced yet?

1.  Go to Growtix.

2. Login

3. Upper right side click on your name.  This opens a drop down menu.

4. Click on my schedules or orders

5. You should see all you orders or schedules there.

Hope this helps.

Email questions@reapercon.com if you have additional questions.

I now see what so many are confused about.  Have not really been back to pay attention because I knew that I had 2 classes on Thurs, 2 on Fri, and 1 on Sat.  Just hit the site and clicking on schedules shows me all the classes I took but not enough info to tell me day/time of class.  One would need to go through the page with classes that day and try to find the name of the one they took to match it up. 

 

When we show up and check in will we get anything that tells us the classes we took and the day/time? Not a problem if I need to run through my list and get each class listed out and the date/time so I have it.

Agreed about Growtix being somewhat painful to try to use.

Compared to last year around this time, I'm actually ahead of the minis for the rpgs. Really nice feeling (first time since I've started running games at RCon). Other things I'm lagging but I should have those caught up in a week or so. I've got everything I needed so no need to order anything except foam trays if I need those. I did order extra last year so we shall see. I do have things coming in the mail that should be here next week, including a toy ship & not-Legos!!! ^_^

 

EDIT: I do recall I have a few 3d printed stuff coming. Hoping those come early next week as those will need to be painted.

I was sitting in church the other day and one of the elders got up to speak. 

long white hair (usually in a pony tail) and a beard to match.   As always I thought he was a dead ringer for Saruman the White. 

If I looked like that I would just get some wizard robes and go with it... then it occurred to me 

 

Why don't I own Wizard Robes? 

at least moderately nice ones, suitable for Renfairs, LARPing and Cons rather than just Halloween. 

anyone have a fav place to buy such garments? 

 

I should get some before the Con.

Etsy or Ebay.  Remember that "moderately nice" does not equate to "moderately inexpensive".  

 

If I had time I could make you one, but I don't even have my own costume started.

I’ve always heard to dress for the job you want, so why not wizard?

 

I’d dress for the job I want, but I’m not quite sure what an exoplanetary ground survey lead would wear. Probably something comfortable. Cargo shorts, but more likely pants. So, er, done I guess. Just have to avoid the red shirt when I go down to the surface.

Add a belt to commencement robes and Bob's your uncle.

Is there a way to sign up for games? Are your games sign upable?(iiis that a word?) Or are you just doing random impromptu?

So, twelve new colors in the all-access bag, plus whatever exclusives are in there? That's pretty fantastic!

My games are Table 08 in the Con schedule. However you go about registering for games on the Growtix/ReaperCon site applies to mine.
