FINAL prep for the travel

Here is where I will be keeping somewhat of a live journal up to when the con starts

A Place To Stay: 2/28/16

OK, got my head a place to rest for a few hours on Wednesday Night... All I gotta do is Get to Wisconsin, check in at the con (since I plan on driving all night) Pick up a Friend of Ernest Gary Gygax Jr., Take him To Frank Mentzer's open house and home later in the evening, then take him to the Con in the morning... Very grateful to Scott for a roof and warmth... and saving me from having to Show up to the gathering on my own

Who is Frank: He is one that was in charge of these:

Waiting on loading up, then a nap.... Then it is off tonight. It has been a long time since I was on an adventure by myself. Kinda scared and excited.... My last true adventure by myself was going to North Carolina to see a friend a long time ago, but when you are married 21 years, you don't do much

We did drive to Florida overnight 11years ago and that was pretty good adventure....ended with another Disney baby.... I am going to miss my girls something terrible.... I love my wife and appreciate her support for me doing this.....

Stories from the Kinniggetts of the the Tabletop

OK, here are some true incidents that as a DM / GM / Animator / Storyteller/ Player that are worth retelling:

Now the list of infamous lines from our games has long been lost and we relied on pen and paper... so I will do my best to create the list over


As we were approaching a den of creatures and hear them but not see them, our fearless fighter goes and says
        Player  "I shoot them with an arrow"

                   DM "How are you going to shoot them?"

        Player:  "Shortbow"


The Party, having a folding boat, prepares to head down the river... player takes out the boat, says the activation word "Float".... Whereas another player says "GO, GO, Gadget Boat!"

At a convention Running "So you think you have an attitude" the Female dwarf passes out and one of the other dwarfs says,

              "I jump the passed out female"

and a second dwarf says "I jump on him!"

The first dwarf rolls a dice and then says "I like it!!"

                     I lost it and it took me 15 minutes to recover

A little background is needed for this one. We attended many cons, and usually it was my gaming group and another gaming group we all played in... They usually ended up with 10 people in their room and their tub was filled with alcohol... when you walked into their room, usually you got cheezits thrown at you like throwing stars... literally they had boxes and boxes and all out cheesit war

We were checking out and passing the room as the Maids were entering, and we heard them say: "Ain't no way I am cleaning this Fucking mess"

We Were starting a new campaign and we were in a town.. I was playing a Kender, Steve was a Militant Black Zulu Warrior, Dave was a Fighter and the Other Greg was a Fighter...
In the middle of the night the town gets attacked so we wake up and start heading down to fight...

The Zulu yells out the window "Shut the Fuck up, I am trying to sleep!!" 


Another Mini One day con I will be attending...
