Did you at least get all your stuff back? Thank god. Please let us know the details when you can.

Everyone else - assume at any big convention that there are people that will steal you bags. There are groups of thieves that go to these places and swipe bags. True dungeon is not any safer than mtg. Be vigilant people.

It was not stolen but picked up by mistake. There is a greater story here but it likely will wait till post Gen Con.

I was sitting next to my chair (if you saw me on Friday you know what I mean) on Thursday afternoon sorting tokens with my bag next to me. It is just a black backpack without anything to make it stand out from anyother black backpack (which I will fix for next year). It is an awesome fishing backpack though that I got this year for tokens exclusively. www.dickssportinggoods.com/p/samurai-tactical-hamachi-tackle-back-pack-19frtuhmchbckpckbtbx/19frtuhmchbckpckbtbx in case anyone wants to see it.

After sorting tokens I decide to put somethings in my backpack to prepare for my run at 3:14PM. This is when I notice it is not next to me. I look under chairs and tables and under other peoples bags. I know it has been taken. I just don't know if someone did it as a poor joke, on accident, or on purpose. If it is on purpose someone most have known there is $20k to $30k in tokens in it or has the biggest set of balls to take it when it is sitting right next to me without knowing its worth.

So I immediately check the with anyone I know who may have done the a joke on me or saw in the area. None of them have it I assess very quickly. After that I start talking to TD about if they can deactivate the RFID's or marked them as deactivated/stolen so they cannot be used. TD tells me they are going to see if there is anything they can do. I run to my 3:14PM run tell them I cannot make it because I have to find my bad as the highest priority. I feel really bad for them because I was hooking them up with full TE's and a few level bumps from Rings of Heroism. I give them my wristband and starter pack and they them to ghost it and that I am really sorry. I walk out and someone suggest I get to gaming etc to let them know in case someone attempts to sell my tokens there.

Gaming Etc was really cool about taking my info and the various things taken. Ro7P being individually numbered helps a lot since it is easy to identify. I am walking back from TD area when I get a message saying that Lucas Oil Stadium has agreed to pulls video from the cameras in the area in question to see if we can find out who picked up my bag. It will not be immediately but it is something. Much better than the ICC security that wouldn't do anything years ago when my wallet was stolen but that is another story. As I am continuing to walk back I get another message saying TD has my bag.

I am go to Kelly to have her take me to the TD HQ. Kelly and I walk into the bowels of LOS and I mention that I was supposed to be on a run and she says, "We will get you to your run." I say that I am more excited about getting my bag back so I am not worried too much about the run but if we can cool if not ohhh well. I arrive at the show office and yes my bag is there and it appears everything is still there (the bag with the 30 various TE's is there so I am good).

Kelly and I book it to the training room and I am delivered to the training with 3 left before the first room. Someone runs and gets me a character card, a single paper clip and a light. I have no lanyard, but it will work. The coach records my stats for first dwarven fighter I can find (not the better one I should be playing but hey it works well enough). He even fixed the treasure for everyone to what it should be because I would have shown the epilogue room we had the full compliment anyway. So away we go.

From then on I was know as the guy that lost his bag. I however reminded whomever said that my bag was taken not lost.

Glad to hear you got it back but the big question that you left out: how did TD get your bag?

Ooops I thought I included that. I was telling the story to co-workers while typing it so I thought I included it. Players in the same run I was on either 1 or 2 runs before mine picked it up by mistake and started their adventure. I don't know when they realized they had an extra bag (in coaching, training or the first room) but they realized their mistake and turned it into to TD. Apparently they apologized a lot about having grabbed it to TD. It was going to sit wherever it was turned into but luckily Laz was going off shift and offered to take it to HQ. It was at that point that the two separate stories got combined (one of a taken bag from me and one of "Hey we have an extra bag" by them). So I definitely had a more than a bit of panic where I went through everything from this ends my TD adventuring because I cannot build up the sets again nor afford to replace them to remembering on Saturday I had a run that I had a friend that I had guaranteed she would not die because I was provided her with lots of tokens vs just a starter pack.

Glad it was all just a misunderstanding and no harm no foul. I know your feeling because a similar event happened to me.

Glad it came back to you. I use two things for my runs - a somewhat hideous yellow case and an orange backpack. Main reason for the colors is to prevent any confusion about grabbing the wrong thing. I've almost left airports with the wrong bag before so I know it can definitely happen!
