Wow, what a weekend. Not only did I run around waving my arms like Kermit, but Lightning Octopus crashed for a few days.
I’m not savvy enough to say exactly what happened, but I believe the technical explanation is that it fell off of a wall, some king’s horses and king’s men from the hosting company gathered around the mess, and somehow (magic?) it was sort of put it back together again.
I did lose a few posts and pictures, so I apologize if you find a section of the site that seems a little janky.
That said, I had a really fun weekend, thanks to the awesome folks from Vul-Con and The Gamers’ Inn.
(I also hit up the Horror & SciFi Film Festival, which I’ll post about later.)
It’s difficult to really convey the scope and majesty of what the Vul-Con guys put together with this thing. I could say it was huge, but saying it can’t fully share the impressive experience of walking around the 20+ foot Circus Maximus. I’m a big fan of local people taking their resources and making awesome things, and what they made is certainly awesome.
In addition to their chariot race and gladiatorial Colosseum, other local gaming groups hosted a ton of games smattered throughout the space, including the Table Top Gaming Society, The Arizona Men in Black, & Todd VanHooser.
The guys behind Vul-Con, Jay and Rick, turned out to be really easy to talk to, passionate about gaming (obviously), and overall nice guys.
