PAX East is in Boston, Massachusettes, USA March 22-24, 2013


We need ONE volunteer who can get to the convention under their own power to help us work the booth and/or Paint and Take. The best candidates for the position will be able to help on the 21st and 25th also.


We will provide:

  • Badge in to the show as an Exhibitor.
  • Food before/after work shifts as necessary
  • Hotel room (shared with 1 other adult)
  • Time during the show to play and shop (an hour or two each day)
  • Time to hang with our staff and guests
  • Transportation to and from the con&hotel&meals if necessary
  • Product as additional compensation for time


We need:

  • A commitment to be there to help during the show, and with booth set-up and tear down OR to know with certainty that you will not be available for specific times
  • A decent working knowledge of our product, how to assemble, paint, etc.
  • Friendly and well groomed volunteers
  • you to get to us in Boston at our hotel or the Convention Center.

Volunteers please send a PM to me. I will select based on how well I know you and whether I believe you will be a good "face" for Reaper in my stead as I cannot myself be there this year*.


*That's smack in the middle of planning and real fulfillment, and my responsibilities prevent me from traveling for the duration.

It's about a 9 hour drive for me. I already have my vacation spent for the year so I can't add the 3 days I'd need for this. Or I'd be up for it. Might have to have a word with the boss. *rubs hands together*


Edit: 6 hour drive.

Oh, oh me me! Except with booth set up. And tear down too. Not sure about my assembly and painting skills either. Not so sure about well groomed either, heard something about hippy-long hair the other day. Getting to Boston may be problematic too. Uh, never mind! Sorry to disturb.

-the conversation in my head...

If I lived close enough to be convenient I'd do this just to find out if I'm as good at making people buy things in person as I am over the interwebz. I'd even show up well-groomed, silly requirement that it is. I'd leave the stanky shoes at home.


People would come back from PAX and be all like "Wow, Buglips sold everything!"


"Why are you all wearing sacks?"


"He sold our clothes!"


"Where's the booth?"




"Where's the new guy I sent out to get some experience?"



*somewhere in the trunk of a car*


thump thump


"Lemme out! Lemme out! Somebody help!"



"Quiet, boy. I boughtcha, and imma keepya."

As we are both former PAX enforcers, I had a very serious talk with my girlfriend about volunteering. We figured with the hotel cost covered and some meals taken care of, it would only be a couple hundred more than driving to PAX Prime. But then the big question arose... what to do with the kids. And bam, dreams dashed ::(:

Buglips, I had actually suggested you as an option, and we decided to put out an open call rather than target specifics. Mostly because, living in Texas, my perspective of what's "far away" is very different from new Englanders. it takes longer than 12 hours to go from the east border to the west border of our state, and up there, that gets you ... to our state. SO I was going, The Carolina's are pretty close, we can ask them. Vancouver's by the Great Lakes. That's just a short drive.


Short Drive being defined as less than sunrise-sunset....

I'm actually closer to Boston than you are, matter of fact. Heck, Boston's closer than Toronto. I'd be tied up that week anyway, though. I'm probably going to be tied up into June. Busy year in Buglipsia.


But it's nice that you thought of me as a possible ReaperBryan understudy.


ETA: Also, I have many years of carnival/fair experience - and not just as a sideshow! Lemme tell ya, after a whole day in the hot, scorching sun, with no sleep in three days, running a Pikachu dart game next to a cotton candy booth - being shot by kids with bad (or good) aim - and wearing a coin apron made up of like 200 pounds of stuck together canadian coins?


PAX would seem like a vacation.


I still have nightmares about sticky-faced evil children with their gooey, candy-smeared money. Especially that little guy who shot me in the eye and giggled maniacally.

      My husband and I run the Paint and Take table at a local convention, Recruits.  It's held at the high school, admission is free for all area students, games are child friendly, etc.  We get really good turnout.  The paint table is free for kids of all ages, even grownup kids, and it is funded entirely with donations.  All of the figures, all of the paint, water cups, brushes, etc come from the wonderful community we have here, from the internet, and from vendors.  It's typical for me to arrive early Saturday to set up and find one or more anonymous boxes of figures or paint waiting.  A couple of years ago at Reapercon folks helped fill a box with mouslings for me to give away.  I could not do this without the support I get from the painting and gaming community. 
      So here is this year's class:
      (BTW, if you got stuff in your Bones4 core that you do not want, find me at next year's Reapercon, I will see it goes to a good cause)
      This is our table about ten minutes after setting up.  Busy the entire day. 

      Some of the fine works of art created by the kids who participated.  They look forward to this all year. 



      Got to pick up more baby dragons next year. I only had the one and it resulted in crying. :(  




      More later,

      I'd asked after last year's Reapercon who to contact about volunteering. Initially it was Lady Storm but when she retired it changed and I think it was @ReaperAHawk that became the new point of contact. 
      Who, what and where do I need to send a request to help at Reapercon?
      Posted here in case others were wondering the same.

      For the last three years, I've gotten to attend Origins in Ohio, and have really loved doing the Reaper Speedpaint (and even won last year). I was hoping to go and participate in the Speedpaint again this year, but I was going through the Origins 2019 event schedule and didn't see a single entry from Reaper. Is Reaper not going to be at Origins this year, or at least not hosting any events?

      My crew of five drew an earliest hotel registration time of 2:00 this afternoon, which wasn't enough to score a room in a connected hotel.  It looks like we'll be out by the airport again this year, so that will place a premium on traveling light, and shopping responsibly. 
      Next task, decide whether we're driving, and how to configure two different miniature war-games for air travel.  Perhaps this is the year when Fat Dragon fold-flat buildings will cover the table...

      Sooo .... who else is going to Paizocon?
      That's .. erm, May 25th to 28th - so I might be a bit late asking for some of you. ^^;
      I know Mr. Thorne and I will be there. Don't know what all we'll be doing exactly, but I know we'll be there.
