Cave of Secrets: Closed Casket Funeral
Okay, so... not sure what to really add before getting to the post on this one, aside from mentioning that I'll be at Gencon this year with my roommate Sean. We'll be arriving at the convention on the 16th, and leaving on the 21st if anyone wants to hang ou...

One of life's little pains in the ass: When you're someplace public but inside where the AC is on because it's summer... but it's raining outside so it's actually fucking freezing indoors.

It's a minor, stupid, first-world-problem annoyance, but it bugs the hell out of me when a mobile website is deliberately screwed up or made unusable to force you to use an app which requires you to sign up for an account... when the original website can be used without any sort of credentials at all.

That's right up there with "You know, you can download an app to use this forum" pop-ups.

This has been Random Bitching About Petty Shit Theatre.

So one of those "fun in game plotting" moments. I'm scribbling out the 'what happens if the player characters don't intervene' countdown for one of my Gencon Monster of the Week games. I just got to type this phrase out in my notes for the endgame result for if the player characters fail: "Holy shit a demon lord born of one of the worst horror movie scripts ever is stomping around Hollywood."

So, y'know. Enjoying myself tonight.

Welp, home from the convention. Time to put off unpacking for a couple hours.

Forgot to post these earlier. They're from just after closing ceremonies, as folks filter out of the convention center and back towards hotels and such.

EDIT: I removed a couple of pictures, because I found out some things about the guy wearing the fursuit that made me feel like I'd rather not have him on the post.

Con's winding down and closing ceremonies begin in an hour so this might be the last one of these I do.

But who knows.

Feel free to comment, ask questions, etc.

And in case it needs to be said, there is no judgement here, don't yuck anyone's yum, and so forth. This applies to all of these posts.

By the way, this year's con charity is Hope Haven Farm Sanctuary (hopehavenfarm.org ). They've been bringing by critters for people to see and pet, like exotic breeds of turkeys and chickens and such, all rescues. Today's special guest stars are pictured here.

So somebody asked if I was taking any pictures at Anthrocon this year. And admittedly, I don't take as many as I used to but as there is some interest in what's going on at the con, I grabbed a few pics last night and today and may get some more in the next couple of hours. For good measure I've set up a collection in case anyone wants to opt out. But it's mostly gonna be fursuiters and the occasional crowd shot. The last couple of pics here are the dealer's room, or at least as much as is visible from the walkway I was on (there's about a full aisle that isn't visible).

Feel free to ask questions!

(BTW, this is my first collection so let me know if I screwed anything up.)

EDIT: Are all of the pics showing up? The post says 9 photos but only 7 are actually showing up on my end and I dunno if I screwed something up or not.

EDIT 2, Electric Boogaloo: I think they show up if you select 'view album.'

War Orphans: Planet of the Cybermen
So
I've been writing this in fits and spurts during quiet moments at
Anthrocon to try and get it out there before I forget too many details.
(You'll see how well that's worked out, which can probably be chalked up
to all manner of distractions at said c...
