Does anyone know if S.T. Joshi will be there?

 

Good question. I hope so, but I have a weird feeling (get, it...weird) that he and Bob Price just may be awol. I sincerely hope I am wrong on both accounts.

Chaosium is planning to have a booth in the trade hall. We are also encouraging Cult of Chaos members (and anyone else) to register to run Call of Cthulhu games in the gaming areas - run enough games and you get free entry to the event.

 

Game registration is live now - make sure, if you're a member of the Cult of Chaos, to also register with Todd.

 

Nick and I should be there, so please come by to get books signed and say hi.

Game registration at the convention is open now?  I don't see it on the website.

Folks on the fence may want to act quickly, or at least somewhat quickly as it's being reported that almost a 2/3rds of the General passes are sold. So a rough estimate may be @ 200-250 are left. 

 

Food fer thought.

I've been to 4 Necronomicons - 2 in the nineties and the 2 recent ones that Niels and the Arts and Sciences have put on. I was quick enough to score a Gold pass this year.I'd be happy to try to answer any questions that my fellow Yogges have.

Nick - myself and a couple of the other Skype of Cthulhu guys also lucked into Gold passes this year. So we shall meet! Although perhaps hooded and cloaked...

 

A group of us are staying in an AirBnB. In 2015 WiseWolf and I tried to do a self-guided tour, mostly up by Brown - maybe we'll take you up on the offer of a tour!

Very cool! You guys have been to the last con and know about all the Gold Key perks? The prayer breakfast and the Black Lodge?

 

We can do the walking tour or use my SUV if you want to really get around and see all the farther stuff - like all the Joseph Curwen farm locations and where he secretly unloaded his unholy cargo on the riverbank. HPL Geography is one of my keen interests.

 

Finally, you should give Paul here on the Yog a PM and order a 'Yog Sothoth.com' enamel lapel pin. It's a cool tiny pin with an elder sign. All the cool cultist are wearin' em for identification. Had mine on last year and it worked nicely.

One of our number was a Gold Key last time, and the others are vaguely aware of the other perks, but he has been strangely silent about the details...perhaps sworn to secrecy?

 

I will talk with the guys about touring, as we get a bit closer to the date. Appreciate the offer, I'm certain we will take you up on something!

 

WiseWolf and I were both at the Yog meet in 2015 - I had both the pins (patron and regular) but somehow lost one of them (can't remember if it was the blue or the green). Had a nice chat after the meetup in the bar with Paul, Helen, Sandy, and others. Maybe we even met?

 

Anyway, looking forward to see you and other Yoggies this year.

I'm going again this year. I went solo to the last one and had great time, especially at the Yoggie meet up (bottom left of the photo). We’ll have to send you new pic Paul. You’ll be with us in spirit and will drink a round to ya.

I’m at the Biltmore this year but I stayed at the Omni last time and it was still very convenient and close by.

I mainly go for the gaming too. My plan is to play but probably bring some scenarios to run too in case we need to make our own fun. Glad to hear Chaosium will be there in full force!

There is also a surprising amount of good food and drink to be had in the easily walk-able neighborhood although you may want to plan ahead when it comes to grabbing a quick bite between games.

 

Look forward to seeing you all there.

I will definitely be with you in spirit! I look forward to regular updates about the convention so I can live vicariously through them. :-)

I'll be staying at the Omni, and splitting a hotel room with my friends from Vermont whose heads certainly don't change colors.

 

Over on Facebook they announced the final call for Armitage Symposium abstracts on June 5th.

 

If I can finish the !#$%@ thing, I may have a CoC or DG scenario to run.

I'll be running a 4 hour scenario of my own writing, on Sunday from 10am-2pm. They haven't announced the full schedule of gaming yet but they did confirm my game's timeslot with me. "The Heart of Darkness."

Gaming is the absolute hardest thing for me to shoehorn into my timeline - even harder this year with a paper to present. I will be bringing my painted and modded copy of Cthulhu Wars like I did in '15 and hope to have all the new Onslaught II stuff painted up by then. I had about 1.5 hours available to 'game' last Con and Sandy waxed wroth that I packed up my CW and left so soon. I would absolutely leave my copy with someone as long as they vouched for its safety.

 

Now a *good* LARP...I could be talked into that, perhaps, especially a LATE night one. Good ones are very hard to find though. Maybe someday Sean and Andrew will reset that bar. One can hope (and dream).

I'll be there, but there will be no time for gaming on my schedule. I'm on three panels -- The Fairy Folk, Clark Ashton Smith, and Lovecraft's Revisions -- and will spend the rest of my time attending other panels, shopping for books and (hopefully) socialising, because I did too little of that last time.

I'll be there as well, on two panels (Campaigns in Call of Cthulhu and CoC's Favorite Scenarios), running a couple of sessions of Feed the Shoggoth!, and possibly participating in the Extra Life charity event. :)

No, scratch that -- I'm on TWO panels: moderating (!! Cue gibbering stage fright here) the Clark Ashton Smith and sitting on the the R. H. Barlow panel.

As I mentioned in post #3, I had a great time at NecronomiCon 2015 and now N2017 is next month.

 

I shall be trying to live it vicariously through people's Twitter and Periscope feeds. :-) Do post your account usernames here if you plan on Tweeting during the con!

Panel times and panelists now up, though there may or may not be changes for the latter. S.T. Joshi is listed as being on several panels.

 

I'm surprised that Bobbie Derie isn't on the Erotic Lovecraftiana panel, having written a book on the subject.

Heads up that according to the Necronomicon Providence website:

 

Single day passes, and tickets to smaller events, film screenings, the Cthulhu Prayer Breakfast, Eldritch Ball, concerts, etc., will be available mid-July.

I'll be there, along with Matt Sanderson and Paul Fricker. We're down for a few panels, including a live crossover between The Good Friends of Jackson Elias and The Miskatonic University Podcast.

 

Can't wait!

Embarrassingly, I have no idea how ticketing works for panels. Can someone who has attended Necronomicon before help answer this?
