    I was able to get a room at the Embassy Suites for 1 Sep - 4 Sep, but not for Wednesday Aug 31st. I will either have to find another hotel for the night or come in on Thursday direct. But I really like being there Wednesday night!

     

    Lue.

    Contact the Embassy Suites hotel directly ((940) 243-3799)  and let them know you need a update your stay for Wed. night. This should work.

    We have left early before the auction nearly every year for the past 15+ years in order to get home before midnight.  DH used to take Monday off from work, because the drive leaves him pretty ragged.  Some people who leave Sunday don't get home until the following day. Some won't get home for several days. 

     

     

    I'm willing to bet that most of the artists would prefer to not teach additional classes on Sunday. Most are pretty tired by the award ceremony Sat night, and have to face the horde of contestants seeking feedback on Sunday morning.  But I could be wrong about that. 

     

    Classes will continue to sell out, due to limited seating.  The con has expanded for years, and continues to fill up. 

     

     

    You are correct. We can't get artists to teach on Sundays.  Many are so tired and then this year Sunday was for feedback day. This is why Sundays are not filled with classes and activities.....We just can't get it scheduled if no one is willing to teach....Monday is also a holiday for our employees and many hourly employees are working the con all weekend too.....so Sunday is really the only day we have employee help to "Move-out" of the convention center by 6pm. We don't see our employees back to work until thursday due to working the weekend, and monday is paid day off holiday. We will try in the future to get as many events/activities for Sunday before closing ceremonies at 2-3pm.

    Just wondering if there is going to be any CAV games this year and is Talon Games is going to be at the conversation this year also?

     

    Sorry, Talon Games won't be at the show this year and No CAV games either.

    Hi! I am looking for a room for the weekend (or as many days as I can get). I have medical conditions that make hotel hopping less than ideal, but I’m willing to work with what I can get. 

    There may still be a room available on our ReaperCon block at the Embassy Suites onsite with the Denton Convention Center. I would call them and speak with Andrew or Dixie.  Phone: 940.243.3799

    True, but when 20 people are trying to do that at the same time it's not super effective.

     

    I know I've seen it discussed though, using the document cameras and a TV in the classrooms, so a blown up image can be seen by all of the students.

     

    Yes, that is the goal for 2021 RCon to have document cameras and TVs in every classroom for easy visibility.

    @Reaper Ron@ReaperAHawk@Reaper_Jon---assuming (fingers crossed) we are able to have in person Reapercon this year, are plans being made to snag all of/ as many rooms as possible at the Hilton convention center as opposed to the limited number available last year?

    Thanks.

     

    Yes, we are working on a F2F ReaperCon this year.

    Every year we have a contract for most of their rooms....In fact every year they give us more than what is contracted for because I always go back to get more room blocks opened. After they have exhausted all the rooms they can give us, that's usually when I go to get other room contracts  at surrounding hotels in the area. Hope this helps.

    If these are going to be listed on the Reapermini.com Store, where will the Swag boxes be listed under (Accessories, Metal figures, Plastic figures--What is the best way to find them on the Store once they become available? 

    As fast as limited inventory items fly out off the shelves (anybody else miss the Ma'al Drakar resin warehouse find or the Bonus box from a month or so ago?) it seems wise to know exactly where to be F5'ing the hell out of to get to the listing in time.

     

    *What is the plan for any of the individual components of the boxes that are left over--will they be made available once the boxes are gone? Obviously the paints (with exceptions) will eventually be put up for sale, and the pretty much all the figures will either reappear or be remade into Bones eventually, but what about any of the limited resin pieces and Con gear? I kind of expect that the extra con stuff might end up as Store order bonuses until they run out, but if we are willing to pay cash now wouldn't that be better than giving it away or sitting on it until it becomes a warehouse find in a year or three? asking for a friend...

     

    There will be a banner on our front page of reapermini.com to click and will take you directly to purchase the sets.

     

    As far as individual items, those may not be on until during the Con weekend or after as we are still making swag/hobby/brinewind box sets and need those items to complete sets. We will make an announcement for those items when they come available on reapermini.com.

    Are sales restricted to only the full boxes, or are any of the individual components in the boxes (paints, figures, etc) going to be made available at the same time, or at a later date?

     

     

     

    Individual items will go on sale at a later date if items are available. *While supplies last

    Are classes on the schedule still shuffling or do they disappear from the list at some point if they're considered full?

     

    I did my registration earlier today and was just now going through the classes to make sure I have or will have the materials used on hand.  One of the classes I registered for (and got the email confirming) doesn't show on the schedule any more.

     

    Specifically: FR0515 David Diamondstone - OSL and Lighting Effects Sep 4 3pm Central.

     

    Correct!

     

    We have not made an OFFICIAL announcement on classes due to corrections still needing to be made and there were some last minute shuffling of classes that changed on Friday that didn't make it online.

     

    David's OSL Class will be on Twitch, not zoom, but more info on that specific class to come soon on our website. He was one of those changes on Friday that didn't make it online.

     

    Please stay tuned for our OFFICIAL announcement of ReaperU classes for ReaperCon Live on all our social medias, here on the forums, and our website!

    Thanks!

    Are you doing classes over Twitch or Xoom or have you decided?

     

    Zoom classes

    If I understand the Tech, the Twitch Platform would easily allow someone to present a class to 300 or more people who signed up. But it does not support voice interaction. Zoom, (last I heard had security issues) probably has a limit of less than 50 (maybe 24-25) persons plus an instructor. ISDs that tried using it for virtual classrooms would know its limits. Know any teachers? They would be who to ask.

     

    We have purchased the highest tier for Zoom allowing 1000+ per classroom. We also already have our twitch schedule defined and planned. Most (98%) of our instructors for ReaperCon Live will be on Zoom. Hope to see y'all there! :)

    Worth mentioning, the rinse cups are all different themes, so really it's just Angelica that's the duplication.

    What makes me giggle is that the mega pack is the same price as buying them individually....

     

    Yes, because each pack is already discount individually,  but the Mega box is a one stop click and you get another free figure that is exclusive to the mega box. You only get the captain black figure by purchasing the mega bundle.

    Thanks, everyone! Those summaries were really helpful.

     

    @ReaperAHawk, you get all your Reaper colleagues thinking about what to do about the gaming yet? :)

     

    Not yet...we had very long meeting this morning, but didn't get that far. to talk about how games would work...it will be on our agenda as soon as we lock in Classes (Reaper U) for this virtual RCon. We are trying to make sure all/most facets of RCon will be apart of this one too!

    @ReaperAHawk, I just thought of something. You should touch base with Aaron & Liz with Miniature Monthly. They hosted some Zoom sessions when Adepticon was cancelled. That might be an option in addition to Discord.

     

    I believe we have already reached out to Aaron and Liz. Thanks!

    @ReaperAHawk, will someone be available here after the show or in the morning to answer questions for those of us that are unable to watch the stream "live"?

     

    I'm always here. The thing is we have had to make a  big decision very quickly (but NOT without a HUGE amount of consideration) to pivot our planing for an online show. At this time, we don't have all the answers to your questions because...well we are in the midst of planning it all now.

     

    We and/or I will answer questions if we can. Somethings are still very vague until we have more planning meetings....that and still be socially distance in our meetings. :/

     

    Also, the Twitch Live episodes (most) are on our YouTube channel for you to watch later if you can't watch Twitch Live. I will let the guys know this episode needs to be posted to our YouTube channel ASAP. Thanks and hope this helps.
