KoL Con II
Okay, everybody, welcome to the temporary official announcement page for KoLCon II, tentatively titled "The Wrath of Con," because if there's one thing we here at Asymmetric Publications lack, it's originality.
Let's structure this like a FAQ, shall we?
Q: What's KoLCon II?
A: It's the second official Kingdom of Loathing gathering, which will
take place THIS WEEKEND (!), in and around Tempe, AZ (which is, itself, in and
around Phoenix, AZ.)
Q: I didn't know about the first one. Was it fun?
A: Yes. It was small, but so was the game, back then. It was
awesome, but so was the game, back then. Read all about it here.
Q: Is this one gonna be fun?
A: Heck yeah, good golly yes sir it is.
A: Yes. These gatherings are ALWAYS fun. And this one is shaping up
to be huge.
Q: What's goin' down?
A: Tons of stuff! Here's the basic schedule:
Friday, September 23
- 7 PM: Party at Gameworks.
We'll provide snacks and soft drinks for people who have purchased a Registration Packet, and we'll have a
central room to socialize. (Look/ask for the "Asymmetric Publications" party
if you can't find us.) People should bring moolah (Gameworks will not,
apparently, accept payment in meat) to pay for games, dinner, and booze (if
you're 21+). We'll likely stick around as long as it continues to be fun,
probably until at least 11 PM or so (they close at 1 AM).
If you purchased a Registration Packet after the point at which we stopped
mailing them, you can pick it up at Gameworks or at the Saturday BBQ.
Saturday, September 24
Sunday, September 25
Q: What should we do about plane/hotel reservations?
A: Hopefully, you should already have arranged all this if you're
planning on coming. You should fly into Phoenix. There's only one airport,
so whichever airport you pick will be the correct one. For a hotel room,
we're recommending Candlewood
Suites on Baseline -- it's close to everything (everything being the
airport and the park, and according to their website, the brand new IKEA!
Huzzah!) and the rooms are around 50 bucks a night. (Though we've gotten word
that Candlewood Suites is booked up -- picking something else nearby would be
a good plan if you can.)
If you guys want to arrange to share rooms, rides, etc., the best place to do
so is probably this forum
Q: What's the weather gonna be like?
A: Hot. Seriously.
Q: OMG! This weekend is coming up SOON!back to login
A: Yeah, tell us about it. Also, that wasn't a question. In any
case, we hope to see each and every one of you real soon!
