Who has met whom in real life

It's never great meeting Pydro, he's just a scurvy pirate!

Actually, Pydro seems pretty cool.  Having never met Ronway, however...

I think only two semi-regular forum goers have met me. Reckless and dshields.

You're not a mere forum goer. You are a forum master, along with Adam, Paul, and Jodie. Someday I will meet the other two forum masters.

Well if Ronway won't say it, I was glad if only briefly to meet Christopher and you in person at Origins.   One of these days I'll make it to a PAX or Gencon to either volunteer or act like I'm a volunteer at your booth.

My fiancee did demos at PAX East, so some of you might have met her. I put in a brief appearance at the pre-dinner before I had to fly out of town. We both got a whiskey recommendation from Craig there! It was...smoky.

I've met a lot of awesome people thanks to these forums. I remember meeting grysqurl, arenson9, Rabit, Donnor, Craig, Christopher, Paul, Adam, HumbleKnight......and I'm sure I've met more, but I don't remember forum names too well.....I need to work on that. I remember faces though!

DanMarshall14 and I met last month. Unsurprisingly, SotM made for a good conversation starter of a fast-developing game-friendship (and maybe I can rope him into costuming...)

I have also met Cam Banks, who is a forum user, um... three times? Four? At a few local events. I'm sure he also saw me in the TC Pride Parade, but doubt he noticed. Big fan of his since MHR days!

I look forward to attending GenCon next year, which is my plan, and hopefully I can meet more-- and maybe do some volunteering. Teaching and running these games pleases me very much. Especially if the RPG needs some help by then...

There are occasions at Origins and GenCon where I feel like I'm accidentally stalking Cam Banks.  

One day, at Origins, I ended up in his proximity something like 4-5 times at various places:  behind him in line at North Market, at a restaurant for dinner a few tables away, ahead of me in the Dealer Hall.  It was a surreal experience, to be sure!

We need a separate league for Europeans! It's much harder for us to meet lots of forum people.

I have met (in no particular order): Christopher, Paul, Arenson9, Matchstickman, Pwatson, Ameena, Mezike, grysqgl. Am I forgetting anyone?

I plan to collect a few more in November. ;)


Just assume I'm always doing that.

Damn it, Ronway!

I even bought him a water, but he drank it wrong.

As much as I think you are a pretty cool person, I unfortunately haven't met anyone on the forums. I have played on G+ and show up to handelabra streams but noone in real life. Unless you know who I am without me knowing who you are, ultimately becoming a very sneaky person

So have I. But I can't remember names now. One of the forum goers demo'ed Villains for me and my friend, and I talked to another who asked me who my favorite hero was. I said Legacy, but my mind ALWAYS changes because of the multitude of cool characters.

 

Anyway, I made my avatar a picture of myself so people can recognize me from Gen Con. I will change it soon enough, but I thought it would be a good way for people to put a forum name to a face.

This.

This was the first GenCon that I really spent much time hanging out at the >G booth/room and it was great. Apologies to anyone who I didn't get to talk to much while I was running demos. If only the convention were another 72 hours, then there would be time for everything...right?

I remember in the Apostate battle where Silverleaf said she calls squirrels squiggles, but i didnt think that was in typing...

And do cameos count? Because if so, I've met poor PWatson's corpse several times.

I have family living in St. louis about 5 minutes from GTG and back before Villains of the Multiverse shipped I was able to go to GTG headquarters after receiving an invitation from Craig to drop by and say hello, tour the facility as well as play a game in a prototype version of MMFF. During that day visit I met/was introduced to Craig, Jenifer, Adam, Jodie and Paul,(I even got autographs from Paul and Adam on an index card!) Unfortunatly Christopher had already left a few hours earlier, so I have yet to meet/get an autograph from him.(Although I have played a game or two with him on the video game.) I don't think I have met any of the "forum people",dice hate me or Handelabra team yet but I'm sure that they are just as cool.

I met a bunch at Gen-Con also, Donner, Pydro, arenson9, to name a few, and of course the GTG Staff, Jennifer is the best and I am glad she got to be in a video she and her hubby are so cool.

 

Ronway came to play at my game store, he even wore paints :)

 

Everyone I met has been great. Especially the Tactics teams, I found it hard not to root for them all.  

 

I will be at Universal Studios Next week Getting My Harry Potter on :), So everyone have a good week.

Other than most of the GTG/Dice Hate Me (As much as I love Tactics, I don't think I've ever met Luther!) Dshields at GenCon 2015 and BraithWhite at the most recent Pax East are all that I concretely know I've met.

I'm sure I interacted with a lot of you volunteering at Pax East/ playing the tactics tourneys but since I've never thought to ask forum names, I don't know!
