NC GAME DAY II (Aug 23): Man, was that fun or what?!

The dinner that is the subject of the above poll is for Friday night.

Unless Rel contradicts me, we're still getting together after the Game day Saturday night also, likely at the Rock-Ola Cafe just down the street from the NCSU campus, like we did at the First Game Day.

I didn't see it explicitly stated in the opening posts, so I'll ask here just to make sure:

Is this in the same building as last Game Day? I see we're in the Blue Room, of whatever building.

I've just sent my Planescape character sheet to Shemeska. Looking forward to much sneak attack fun. :)

I'll try and do a drive by on the Cinelli's in Cary tomorrow afternoon...
Erm...is that like, with a gun or something? Because, I'm pretty sure you can get arrested for stuff like that. ;)

I can ask for utility tables, sure. I had figured that a good portion of most of the single tables would be empty, so I didn't think of such a thing. I'll check with Talley tomorrow.

Quasqueton, the game day will indeed be in the same building, and on the same floor. In fact, I think the blue room is across the hall from where we held it last time.

You'll have your sneak attack fun hopefully :)

However I would like to announce that one of my friends who had a slot, Gabriel, won't be able to come down from Maryland as originally planned, and so I've got a slot left open in the game.

I'll leave the slot open till Saturday morning, but 7 levels of class or ecl race; looking for a wizard, sorcerer, psion, or perhaps druid character, since we've got rogues, fighters, and clerics already handled.

First come, first serve, though I'd prefer someone with at least some knowledge of the Planescape setting or the MotP and not a complete n00b to the system (DnD 3e). *grins* Makes my job easier for getting a hook ready on short notice and for character creation.

Just ask for it here and email me, and I'll send the info on the game and character creation stuff.

This better work...

Even if I'd had a gun, NCSUCM, the folks at Cinelli's in Cary had nothing to fear, because I couldn't even find the place. I think I found where it is supposed to be because I recognized the building but there was a different restaurant there.

If the boards wind up being down and this is the last message you see then assume that we'll meet at the Applebees at Six Forks Road and Wake Forest Road. I'll be there at 8:00 but feel free to show up sooner if you like.

The alternative, if folks still have a hankering for italian food, would be Erico's Ristorante in Cary at the corner of Kildaire Farm Road and Maynard Road in the same shopping center as Fallen Orc Games. The food is good, the prices are reasonable (they've got pizza too) and I think the atmosphere would suit us.

Tonight is your last chance to chime in on the decision. I'll make a call one way or the other and the "official" result will be posted by morning. Hopefully the boards will cooperate and stay up.

I say Applebee's. That way I can take a taxi over and down some Mudslides. But I shouldn't have a problem with anywhere else y'all pick.

I vote Applebee's as well.

I can't believe I'm voting mass-market food over a local Italian joint, but Cary is like the Bermuda Triangle to me. I've lived here for 6+ years and still manage to get lost in Cary at least half the time.
 

Update on the room set-up: I received an e-mail today from the staff of Talley with a diagram of our room layout. I had been worried that the room would not be big enough to support double tables, but I may have been wrong. They are going to play with putting four 5 ft x 6ft tables in the room (that's what we did at the last game day). Assuming it fits without us sitting in our neighbor's lap, we will go with that setup. That means nice, big tables for everyone! :)

Talley rocks.

If the setup is not feasible, and we go with the 8ft tables instead, I'm not sure that there will be room for card-table sized stuff, but TV tray tables would probably be OK.

Indeed, Applebees it is.

NCSUCodeMonkey, pleased don't let me forget, assuming that everything goes fine on Saturday, to write a thank you note and commendation to the folks at Talley. It sure seems like they have been very accomadating to all our requests. Especially considering that this is costing us NOTHING, they deserve a big pat on the back.

I'm looking forward to seeing many of you tonight and all of you tomorrow.

I'm not quite sure how many to expect tonight but I'm going to assume somewhere around 8 or so. I think I'll call ahead to Applebees and set us a reservation. That'll be Noah, party of 8 ;) .

Rel, this is something I think we wished we had done in hindsight last time, but could you print out a list of everyone signed up the morning of before you go to game day? That way, it'll be up-to-date, and we'll also have a list of who's supposed to be there.

Actually, we had such a list last time and I'm planning on printing out the schedule before I leave work today so we should have it this time too.
 

Anybody out there willing to bring a DVD player? I'm borrowing a copy of The Gamers, and I could bring a TV. It's only 45 minutes long so it would probably fit in the lunch break (for people who aren't going far to get food). Just a thought :). I don't want to try and cram too much in to one day, but it is a funny flick. Anyway, let me know if you're interested in bringing a player.

My DVD players is enmeshed in a tangle of wires at the back of my entertainment center. I don't see unpluging it to bring to Game Day, plus I'm lugging a ton of stuff already. But I'd love to see The Gamers. If it doesn't work out to watch it at Game Day maybe we could get together some other time in the near future.

Regarding tonight's gathering at Applebees, I just called them and they DON'T take reservations. I was also advised that they tend to be pretty busy on Friday nights around 8:00. The bartender (which is who I spoke with) advised somebody to get there a bit early (15-20 minutes) to reserve us a spot. I'm probably not going to be able to swing that so if somebody else wants to take point on this one, I'd appreciate it.

If that doesn't work out then we'll just have to mill around outside and talk with each other for 20 minutes while they get us a table ready. Hardly the end of the world.

Hand o' Vecna, to the rescue! I can bring my DVD player, but since I'm only playing in one game (Henry's afternoon Mutants & Masterminds game), I was planning to use the morning to run some errands and do some cleaning up at my place. 'Course, if enough people persuaded me to come in the morning....

Also, due to unforseen monetary shortages, plus a lack of a vehicle, I won't be able to join y'all for dinner at Applbee's in Cary tonight, nor will I be able to join you for dinner at Rockola Cafe after Gamer Day (unless I find a 10-spot in my couch cushions) :(

Oh, Henry, did you ever get my reply to the 2 questions/comments you'd asked about my character via e-mail?

10-4; all is cool. You taught me something new about Energy Fields, too. :)

You just KNOW you want to get "Down and Dirty on the Farm" in the morning slot, don't you? Don't you?

And, BTW, "Hand o'Vecna, to the rescue!" is something I bet most folks don't hear for their entire gaming careers. ;)
 

I think Hand 'o Vecna would make a perfect Father McCallister...with the good book in your left hand and a longsword in the right. Playing an inebriated preacher is MUCH better than running errands, methinks. :) I'll bring the DVD and TV tomorrow regardless, and if we wind up with a player then that'll be a fun lunchtime activity.

Rel, I'll try to get to the Applebee's a little early tonight and request a table for Morrus, party of 8.

Grrrrrr.

I have a lost minute conflict, and I won't be able to attend. So please offer my slot in NSCUCM's FR game to someone else. I'm sorry for the late notice. I feel really bad I won't be able to attend. I was looking forward to meeting you guys.
