A thought for ReaperCon 2017....

Okay prepare for lengthy thought.....

​(Before it dies of neglect and loneliness....)

 

Whilst on the hangouts over this weekend, the old "dungeon romps" that we used to do in these threads was mentioned, I believe by Adept Legacy.

As we batted the Idea around, we wondered if people would be interested in painting up their "Forum Personae" for use in a diorama.

 

It would go something like this, (Maybe)

 

People find a mini that they feel represents them self in their "forum personae"

 

IE A Drow Elf for myself, the axe toting Barbarian with an INT dump stat for Ub3r, a Jedi Hamster for David B, etc

(you folks get the idea!)

 

and paint it up by ReaperCon 2017.

(That would give us over a year.....)

 

Someone (Some group?) that builds terrain, and lives close enough to Reaper HQ to be able to transport it there, could build some dungeon terrain of various sorts to place all of the minis on as our erratic, eclectic, eccentric adventuring party.....

(Hopefully with a mushroom patch or two.... :B): )

(Size to be determined by number of folks that 'sign up')

 

Everyone brings (or mails for those that can't attend) their contribution to the thing, and it is set up there for us all to look and smile and remember things....

 

Then, everything gets donated to Reaper for display in their corporate HQ, as a THANK YOU! from all of us for hosting such a wonderful Insane Asylum forum for us all to play in.....

 

Would anyone be interested in doing something like this?????

And does Reaper have a place that they could display it?

 

Maybe it could become a yearly thing, that new folks bring "Themselves" to add in, and if folks change their personae, they could change their mini too!

 

I can only imagine some of the possibilities....

(Certain 'people' sneaking and peeking from air vents for example.....)

Not really so much, no.  Nice idea, but impractical for us.

 

There is extremely limited space at HQ and we cannot host a permanent display nor storage of any display yall chose to leave.

Would it be something that could be stored for use at ReaperCon only?

 

Don't want to clutter you up....

 

 

Maybe we could do it for display at the con, and then everyone brings their piece home?

Go visit HQ this year when at RCon and you will see the space they have. Even the room with figures displayed in it is pretty packed or was when I last visited and took a peek inside. Your best bet is to find out if they could be displayed as one big entry into the paint contest or something.

I'm guessing the contest folks will vote a great big "Thanks but no thanks" to a group entry that takes up enough space for a dungeon crawl.

 

That said, they did work out the rules for a group diorama submission last year, if you want to scale down to something on that level.

Would you consider bringing it to the con as an event game? They usually have some space for those, including dungeon crawls. You could always display it out there, and run games for con-goers.
