TOPIC: Blown away by awesomeness

Blown away by awesomeness 2 years 10 months ago #1

This was our first time playing at Origins -> GenCon -> GHC.

Each iteration saw an improvement in my opinion.

GHC in particular had particularly expert GMs. I’m not sure if that is typical, but I was blown away. Maybe it’s because everybody has more practice on the runs? Maybe it’s because we played on Saturday instead of Thursday and all the little imperfections get ironed out? Our two runs were probably the smoothest we’ve seen: from check in to being handed treasure.
100% coming back to GHC next year.

GMs and volunteers in general as always awesome, no mistake about that. But GHC was a cut above - especially combat GMs and ready-room GMs with helping new players (we had 8 veterans, with 2 random people joining, who were new - in both runs - and they were great and had an awesome time!).

Thanks to the whole team!

I concur. My two runs through N3 had great combat DMs. I didn't run N2 because I was a combat DM there for the whole weekend :)

GHC is my favourite con for all these reasons. They had the cream of the crop for volunteers this year. My N3 run was fabulous and all the folks involved were amazing.

We're allowed to have imperfections?

Man, I must've missed that part of the meeting.

Seriously, though, I'm jazzed it was such a great experience for y'all. All the sweat and exhaustion and blood (there's sometimes blood) is totally worth it when I see the parties having a blast - I'm smiling under that mask even if my eyes are still doing the creepy stare trying to unnerve you.

My favorite Con as well. Close to home is one reason. A much more relaxed and informal Con. Getting to coach/train people like Pat Rothfuss, Matt Mercer, Ed Greenwood, Satine Phoenix and other WOTC folk is awesome.

Seeing old friends and making new is always a bonus to the volunteer experience.

I’m part of Bhorg’s guild and completely agree. N2 and N3 were good at GenCon, but each had a few lumps and bumps. By GHC, all of those creases were ironed out. Both runs were really great.

And a fine job you did too! My apologies for the brain freeze I had on sneak attack damage. There’s a reason I’ll never be a combat room DM. :silly:

I would have to agree. This GHC made me realize this is one of the best places to play TD. I was quite impressed with everyone on the staff this year. , Cool puzzle changes from GC and frankly I wanted to jump into the snow puzzle. (I hear it was made of diaper filler)



Extra Credit points to the transmute team, as it was super easy to slim down on some of the bulk chips I'd collected. I could see why this could be overburdening to the TD staff at a larger con. Thanks for giving us a place to do IN PERSON transmutes.

+1. The transmute team made short work of 250+ trade good transmutes for me on Friday night, and then did an incredibly fast turnaround on some Charms of Awakened Synergy on Saturday morning before our first run. A+ performance.
