The Countdown Begins

Hey folks!

Welcome to a brand new year. As you can see, we aren't quite up and running yet. It's only January 2nd, and I'm already behind schedule. Don't worry though. The site will open for business sometime this weekend. Come back on Monday and we'll be ready for you.

Closed for the Season

OK, folks. All the bodies have been counted, and we are officially closed for the season. We'll be opening for more business on January 1st, 2013.

I placed the order for Child's Play Charity to benefit the Women and Children's Hospital of Buffalo, NY.
I selected as many items as I could afford from their Amazon Wish List, in order of priority, as determined by the hospital.
Ended up adding $11 of my own cash to cover the cost of shipping for all the new toys for the girls and boys.

Thank you to everyone who donated.

Crunch Time

Hi, folks. It's me again.

We need you to purchase your badges and event tickets for the convention.

I don't like posting these messages, but they are a necessity. We've just made payment for all but one of our expenses with the ticket/badges sales we've had so far. Unfortunately, the last expense is the biggest one; the Convention Center itself. Payment for the convention center is due in just 4 short weeks. This is our crunch time.

Again, we need you to purchase your badges and event tickets, so we can make payment on the convention center.

Taking a look at the QCC: Savage Worlds

Savage Worlds is arguably the 3rd biggest RPG in the market place these days and for good reason. It takes the flexibility or GURPS and makes it much more playable. It looks simple on the surface but is like an iceberg with the depth of play it can bring to the table. It puts a new spin on traditional gaming by using dice types as stats and brings some Indy sensibilities with bennies being a currency able to mold the story in some small ways. All these reasons plus many fine publishers putting out settings and supplements give a wide variety of gamers reasons to play Savage World.

Taking a look at the QCC: The Badge

Hey folks. Chris Sniezak here again with a QCC update. I just wanted to encourage all you folks to get yourself a badge to our convention of conquering conquest. Oh you have questions. Let's hear em.

What do I get for just my badge?
