ReaperCon Survival Kits

Recommended Posts

 

 

This is the first year we have had to hire security. 

 

See Knarthex's first year & this....hmmm coincidence? I think not.  :devil:

 

Crazy to think that ReaperCon has gotten this big that this is now part of the con.

 

 

The need for security has a lot more to do with the building we are in than the attendees I believe.

 

Yes.

 

We are in a much more publicly accessible area with far less ability to assume well-regulated doors.

 

At the factory for 10 years, we were out of the way, hard (relatively) to find, and very specialty. Foot traffic was not a likely event.

 

At the hotel for 2 years, we were tucked in a corner, unlikely to be stumbled upon by other than hotel guests that were uninvolved, and thus equally as secure.

 

Our current venue is a former best-buy in a strip mall at a major intersection, with several very lively and active retail outlets and fast food places nearby, and pedestrian traffic is not unexpected, some of which may decide to come in to see what the "fuss is about". We do not know what the reaction of the Gen-Pop to our particular brand of geekery will be, so we are providing security.

Likely lots of staring and pointing at folks, especially those in costumes. ..

(I walked through downtown Atlanta in my Drow garb during DragonCon in the 90s...

People were hanging out of their car windows to take pics...)

Cough drops, I recommend Riccola cherry + honey.

 

I like the honey ones with echinacea in them!  Something I keep around all winter here.

Don't forget an essential part of your ReaperCon survival kit - food to share with me your new friends.

I will have many decorated cookies from the wife to share.  Even fit the theme.

This sounds suspiciously like my checked bag except I have double the questionable items! I'm also looking forward to going through security with my carryon filled with my paint entries - all nicely wrapped and boxed.

      This little guy is number 2 of 3 posts for now. 
      He was a lot of fun to paint up! His little spine-dies were fairly interesting to paint!

      C&C is always welcome!

      Number 3!
      Frumitty is supposed to resemble Mort from Madagascar. Also, check out his pockets, HE HAS STRAWBERRIES! How cute is that? I love that Jason Wiebe took the time to sculpt little strawberries. :D

      I just love this little guy!! I've been on a 'woodland critter' kick for a bit, and I'm so glad to have finished this guy. I'm working on a diorama for Reapercon, so that's why he doesn't appear to be based. 
      Let me know what you think! C&C is always welcome and appreciated!

      I sort of fell off the WIP thread because life made this take longer than I had originally intended. The minis are by Bombshell, and I have to say that they were a pleasure to paint. I will be picking up a few more at ReaperCon, for sure.
      The scenery is by Secret Weapon, Shadow's Edge, and Woodland Scenics. The base is from a cheap 3 pack from Michael's. All paint is from Reaper.
      I'll probably end up staining or painting the base, but I haven't yet decided which way to go with it.
      It feels really good to finish something for the MSPOpen. In hindsight, I probably should've started with something smaller, and worked my way up to this, but meh. I'm pretty proud of this.

      To help alleviate the last minute rush order or trying to have them shipped to the hotel, I'm reminding people that personalized badge ribbons are a thing.
       
      Because of forum rules we can't post a link to where to order them but if you post here, a certain @ub3r_n3rd fairy may PM you details.
       
      The standard size that Reaper makes their ribbons is: Personalized Badge Ribbon 1-5/8"H x 3-1/2"W
       
      FAQ
      What are the ribbons for?!
      Reaper gives out ribbons for various tasks like joining a faction, taking a class, spending a LOT of money in the Reaper Booth. Some are known, some are secret.
      Individuals also have their own ribbons made and have their own criteria for earning them. 
      In the past there has been a prize for longest chain (without duplicates) but this is subject to the whims of Reaper.
       
      Can I make my own ribbons?
      Absolutely. Anyone can have their own ribbon. Come up with fun (family appropriate) phrase and a task that you will have the receiver perform (again, family appropriate) then contact a ribbon company to have them printed.
       
      How many ribbons should I bring?
      If this is your first time giving out ribbons, 100 should be plenty. If you are teaching a class, running a game or a vendor, you probably want more as you will be interacting with more people.
       
      Is there a list of all the Ribbons and how to get them?
      Short answer, No.
      Part of the fun is talking to people to learn how they got a particular ribbon. When the con starts, I'll probably update this post with a list of known ribbons. like the ones Reaper gives out or ones individuals want to share. (Please don't share the how to unless you have the OK from the creator) 
       
      Not even one spoiler?
      Ok, if you want to get the "Ludo, Friend" ribbon, you have to bring Ludo a small rock. (Rocks from the hotel decor will not be accepted.) Bonus points will be awarded on how fancy the rock is.
