Dragonmeet 2015 20 December 2015

On a chilly December morning I went to Dragonmeet again. All images are cc-by-sa.

I got the Men in Black table set up early, then walked around to chat with some of the dealers as they were working.

An interesting new approach to people who don't want to be photographed. I don't particularly like it.

One of the role-playing rooms; the game I ran was at the last table on the right. Things got a bit noisy at times. Total casualties 1.3, against 1.5 last time I ran TRUANT INKWELL: two half-dead from radiation sickness, one with a third of her memories erased, but everyone was still breathing by the end of the game. I'll run this again at Expo and probably Stabcon.

The demo and playtest room, again during setup.

The dealers once things had got started.

I thought Cowboys and Aliens was a dismal failure? (Mongoose stand.)

Munchkin Steampunk. (Second player from the left was known as "the girl on level 8" for about four rounds.)

Of course the Steamhunk is backed up by Robot Queen Victoria!

More Munchkin Steampunk. I may not be a huge fan of Munchkin in general, but there are clearly still plenty of people who like to play it.

    In my (almost) 22 years of working in TV, that's only the 2nd time I've seen someone put "the universe" instead of "worldwide" on their rights release form. Do they know something about space exploration that we don't? :-)

    That form seems to be a horrible mish-mash of a contributor consent form and various other rights paperwork. Where was it placed? Why does it not have a paragraph about parents and children. Seriously, kids can't give their own consent to stuff like this - they need a responsible adult to agree.

    Where was it placed? Was it in a small area of the con or did it cover the whole thing? Must be annoying to have paid up for travel and the con, and then be told the only option is to throw that money down the drain and leave the venue...

    It was on a pillar between the entrance/ticket desk and the main hall. You certainly wouldn't have been able to see it before you had paid and got inside.
