I have been running CoC for many years (as well as D&D, Mutants and Masterminds, etc). And for a couple of years I helped write and run the Cthulhu Master tournament at GenCon. It does take a lil' extra in running that game and making it fun when it can be really deadly.

On a side note: One of the newest editions to The Geektown Tavern is a framed rubbing of H.P. Lovcrafts tombstone (we went to Providence for vacation last year). Have I said how much I love my bar? ;)

Still Have not made A GenCon... It is On the List, but Usually if I have the Time and Money I Shoot for Dragon since it is Closer to Home... Mutants and Masterminds, is that a Tongue 'n Cheek System on par with Champions?

You must make it to GenCon at some point. It is the grand daddy of all conventions! Hey, I even make it from here every blue moon or so.

Which is How the GTI Has 100K on the Odometer Right? ...<Chuckle>... I Have every Desire to Give GenCon a Shot... It Would Be Fun to Go to a Con where Games were the Focus... I Always Feel like I am Missing Something at Other Cons if I Spend "Too" Much time in the Game Room... At Dragon though I always try to at least Shmooze the Game Area Every Now and then, as Much to See the Homemade Terrain as anything... But I Always Figured GenCon would be a different Story since I would be there Specifically to Game...

Nah, we actually took the van to GenCon last year as we were heading to Montreal afterwards. The milage is more due to 30+ miles each way to work while we were in Dallas. Most of my miles these days are due to doing a lot of road work the last few years. I do contract computer work and work all of south, central and west Texas. The prevous GenCON I flew in 1999.
I still spend the bulk of my time at GenCON in the dealers area and spend more money there than on everything else put together<G>!

It is Interesting that You Mention this as not Two days ago, a Few of us were Talking about our "Motives" for Going to Dragon Con... My Secret Admission has a Time Line so it Depends on The Time Period Historically... I Used to Go To Party... And Would Wear Awsome Costumes to "Justify" the Party... Then It Gradually Shifted to Politics, and Doing Costumeing to Justify the Klingon Business Stuff that we were Going up For... Then It Became the Costumes them Selves and Getting My Picture Taken... (Which I Of Course Love, Almost as Much as Hearing my own Voice or Hearing my Name Said out loud...<Grin>...) Then It Finally Became the Dealers Room... Now I Happily "Justify" My Shopping by Telling Everyone I am so Vain that I can not Go for a year With out getting My Picture Taken all the Time...<Chuckle>... Fact is it is all a lot of Fun... I Have Discovered some Kewl Music there as well of Course...

O.k. guys... I finally got my gaming area put back together after two months of weeding, cleaning & home improvements. As I mentioned before, we're moving so I'm going to lose all of this great space when we sell this house. I figured I might as well document the legacy for posterity.

Here's the link to the pics (there's about 40 of them so be warned):

Pics of the actual gaming tables are coming late tomorrow. It's very late and I have to get some sleep. ;-}~

Very Kewl... I Love The "Tree House" in the Terrain Room... Looks Like You Have Quite the Village Available too... Nice... Posterity Is Good, But I Hope You Find a New Game Space that Makes You As Happy...

Yeah, me too. As long as the new house has a good, dry basement I'll be o.k. I can remodel & build up another "gaming pit."

heh heh.... You know, I was so tired when I responded today that I actually *meant* to tell you what that was--at least I did in my head if not on the keys... ;-}~

I picked that piece up on eBay about four years ago. Guy claims to have been a "professional terrain modeler for motion pictures." After I saw the pics and then the real thing, I wasn't about to doubt it.

It's entirely made of styrofoam and balsa wood and it is indeed a very large Elven-type "treehouse" (could also be a Ranger's house...). In the pic you're seeing, I have a couple of other pieces stacked on top of it so it looks weird. I'll snap some more pics tomorrow and post them for you to see the closeup details.
