That's great. I guess I was thinking more of a 24 hour spot. Was the 18th floor open all the time?

 

No, gaming was more or less from 9:00 till 11:00ish as I recal. With LARPs being down on the Second floor. I didn't see a lot of pick up games but I was mostly playing scheduled stuff.

They had enough 'pick up game' tables available anytime. Gaming was 9am to midnight I think, but yes, there needs to be an 'all night' game area. Afterall, Grandpa Theobald was up all night, so why shouldn't we.

Don't worry, Niels is very social media / Forum / Fan page savvy. He will probably read this very thread.

Thanks. I was mostly joking, but if he reads it here it will save me an email 😀

Adam, you can contact Jesse, the one in charge of gaming, at gaming@necronomicon-providence.com

 

She was actively looking for feedback, so would welcome anything you have to say!

 

In other news:


NecronomiCon has posted what I assume is a response to Joshi's blog post here:

Wait, what...Niels played an RPG??

 

He did! And i got to both drive his character insane AND kill him off. He was great!

 

Meh, I think that any prep in that game would have been thrown right out the window in the first few minutes! I had a blast! :D

 

Well, that's great to hear. I know i had a lot of fun with it; having a table filled with awesome players certainly helps!

Ah...a few minutes in the name of Charity. I get it. Yea, I can't see Niels 'gaming'. I really can't.


I don't know if he plays Call of Cthulhu these days, but he once was an honest-to-goodness player of roleplaying games. (I could be completely mis-remembering this, but CoC may have been his first real introduction to Lovecraft.)

Next time I see him, I'll see if I can get him to admit to gaming in the past.

Yes, we used to play COC in Albuquerque when he was working on his undergrad degree, about 1996 or so.
