    I know it is a bit early but I am able to attend this year and I want it to be great. Let's start the ideas rolling. Here are some of mine.

    1. A decorating contest with a real piece of land (vendor size area) with real deco, crafted or bought/donated
    2. Crafting stations for small pieces of jewelry (maybe necklaces, rings, or bracelets with SOTA charms/runes)
    3. Player suggested Real Life Quest approved by Chris
    4. Mining nodes using glass crafting beads (which could be used in #2 above)

    By October there should be a lot of suggestions to choose from.

    I can show how to make chainmail, multiple weaves, as well as jewelry - made my daughters a really fine weave bracelet for Christmas last year (was a little bit of a pita, but worth it in the end) I can do crafting more than just ingame, haven't figured out how to get effects tho yet.

    Unfortunately your a day or 3 years late.

    Last one was in 2019. Hasn't been one since.

    Yep I have been following them. Last one was a virtual. I am hoping that we can resurrect it this year as this is the first year I have been in a position to attend. RL dictates actions most times. What would you like to see at SOTACom Lazarus Long ?

    If SotACon were to take place, I wouldn't be able to attend, but if I could, I'd like a mini silver automaton that translates all conversations into its owner's language :D

    Speaking of real life events, how did the New York meet-up go?
    I remember reading 2 cellphone screens worth of COVID restrictions, which didn't sound any fun for me. Can anyone share their experience in the event?

    Thanks!

    Uh... well you haven't been following too close. That never happened. It was a plan but never developed.

    I'd like to see someone else run it :)
    I'll be happy to assist.

    It was small, because of Covid19 and such - but Alley Oop, Sean Silverfoot, 2 really nice Ultima dragon ladies whose names are eluding me ATM, Lord British, Ravalox, and myself. We hung at Applebee's for about 2 hours. Discussed a lot about the history of Ultima starting with Sierra Online and Origin. LB had a bunch of great nostalgia, stories, and info to share. Alley and I got our ONBEs delivered in person. A night I won't soon forget, if ever :)

    I suggest we gather at a bar with several bottles of whiskey. On our turn we take a shot of whiskey and discuss how we wish SOTA had turned out differently.

    At least we have fond memories of SotACon East in 2016, for those of us fortunate enough to attend.

    When Laz got busted up coming to Baltimore, Sean Silverfoot stayed with Laz at the hospital and both missed some of the early events. Sean's compassion and kinship displayed his qualities as a gentleman (despite his favorite greeting of F.U.!). :eek::)

    Oh, I almost forgot. HEY SEAN, F.U.! :D

    True story! This is how I first met them at the hotel bar. Where, over copious amounts of malted beverages, I got to hear the whole story. It's actually f*cking hilarious! :)
