As the con draws a bit sooner, I will book a room for the entire weekend this year. We're going to have to get even more C&C (and BattleTech for me) in this year! But otherwise, count me in.

I'm planning on being there, but I won't be running an official game this year (to much real life stuff going on to organize it). However, I am willing to run an open game or two , if there is enough interest.

Rigon, I need to get into one of your C&C games. Just one Fields of Battle game will not suffice. THIS I COMMAND!/Serpentor.

I can't get to the COB until Friday. :( Thursday is usally a good gaming night too. *boo-boo lip* Keep that spot warm for me jaybird216 until Friday!

Rigon, what are you thinking about your C&C game? A special time? Place? Keep me in the loop if ya can, 'cus I needs me some Rigon CK-action!

What type of hooch should I bring this year? After last year I swore off the Jameson (that lasted for about 6 months). But this year should be something else tasty... but, what?

Another CotC in the books. A great time was had by all and there was even some gaming involved this year. It was great seeing everyone that could make it. Only 361 days til the next one.

Oh yeah Boooooooyyyyyyy!

It was a great COB as usual. Lots of drinkin', lots of dancin', lots of friendin'.

Didn't get to play any C&C, but some of us had long talks about the philosophy behind the game, the rules, and all things Crusader. We argued about the battlemat grid, and swooned over the amazing Land and Title as Treasure rules from the CKG. That was pretty cool in itself. So to was the ~18 hours of BattleTech. Datsa lot o' Batt-el'Tech.

What will happen in 2012 at THE COB? I anticipate meyhem, carnage and the continued effects of cirrhosis of the liver.

One thing I love about CotC, aside from seeing Omote tear up the MF'in dance floor, is that no two years are ever the same for me. They're always great! For me, this Con is way more about the people than about any other activity. I attend every year because it's the only chance I get to see some truly amazing friends and to share countless laughs. It's not about the gaming, the art, or even the booze (although all three are present in abundance). CotC just feels good.

This year, the only gaming I got in was a single session of d20 Conan with Rigon and Glad. We had a blast, though! Even if I hadn't loved the setting and the system, you really can't complain when the GM is a cute girl in a corset. :shock:

I even managed to keep from getting completely obliterated this year, which was a nice change. Though that could have been due to Rigon drinking up all my hooch ;)
