We usually stay for the Monday after GenCon (our flight leaves around 4pm, so we're not catching the Sunday flight - we stay for Mon) and it would be cool to catch the Solar Eclipse.

I'm planning to employ this tactic for the first time this year. Our usual drive back to Maryland is so congested with traffic and the horrible rush of everyone trying to leave Indy at around the same time, I'm hoping a Monday departure will make the last day with the vendor hall and the mass exodus just a little more bearable and relaxing.

Getting a chance to catch some proper sleep before you begin your journey home is also a plus! Our group usually sleep 'til an hour before hotel check out, and then goes out for a nice breakfast before we leave.
It's so neat to see Indianapolis in "normal downtown" mode, instead of crawling with convention attendees :)

Google knows all.

I wish it wasn't so close to GenCon. Driving several hours monday morning while still not recovered from GenCon is going to be interesting.

That's in 2017... Unless I'm missing something I don't believe there is one this year on mainland USA... I'm hoping I'm wrong? Help?

The 2017 eclipse is the one mentioned in this thread. Coincides with the 50th Gen Con as Brad says.

I've been making plans for the eclipse for almost a year now. For me it will be after I get back though. Closest point of totality to Indianapolis looks to be about 3.5 hours at about 1824 UTC.

Quick reminder: If you're looking for something to do in the evening, check out the Rogues' Game!
(See first post for details)

I've just finished inventorying the Guildmaster's Pouch o' Loot, and it is overflowing with wealth, ready to be redistributed among the citizenry of Greyhawk.

There are NO COMMONS in the pouch this year.
Over HALF of the pouch is GP.
Due to a generous donation from Jeff, there's over 10,000 GP in the pouch (Some of it in trade bar form)
And as usual, there will be at least 1 UR token available to be won per night.
(If no one pulls the UR on a given night, it will remain in the pouch for the next night - doubling the chances of a lucky winner for the next round.)

This year, the URs include:

Medallion of Heroism
+2 Shortsword of the Sun
Ektdar's Tinkering Tool


Depending on a couple trades, we may also have:
Rod of Seven parts, Segment #6 (+1 Dex)
Hat of Healing
Dirtdazzy's Boots of Skipping

So come test your skills, and maybe go home a little richer!

This sounds very interesting. Could you give me a quick bit of information on this event by any chance?

I'm really trying to dig into TD hardcore this year.
