First I heard was to get into a "pickup" game at GaryCon....that was right towards the middle/middle-end of that thread...
Was that the game before opening at Gary Con 2? The one that involved a lot of beer, the night before the con officially started, before any of the tables were set up? I think there were like 8 players and we played through Portal Under the Stars. I still remember that game...it was a blast. That's the reason I love Gary Con...it's all about the gaming, nevermind all the other stuff, and there are always a bunch of guys around ready to roll dice! (And drink beer.)
Anyway, back on topic, it is interesting seeing this "blast from the past" thread. In retrospect some of the commentary seems like foreshadowing...but "in the moment" it was a bunch of ideas still coming together.
I think Allan Sugarbaker's blog ( http://ogrecave.com/
) was the first public mention on an outside site...Allan played in a session at DunDraCon 2010, if I remember correctly.
