    For those of us who haven't attended a Sota-related con, do you have anyone who can help us out? In addition, I hope there are others such as myself who are new to the game (3+ months) besides the veterans who have been playing it for years. I know duke is too busy to respond to my email. That's why I'm posting it here.

    Thanks to @Winfield And everyone else that came to opening night of The Dead of Winter last night! The Baron's Men always appreciate a good audience. And welcome to those that are planning to come out tonight. I won't be there tonight, but may see a few of you if you come out to Scare for a Cure on Saturday. Save a salute for General Weaver if you make it to the resistance at FOB Omega!

    Looks like I'm late to the party. Hopefully someone will be willing to part with their cloak at a nominal fee at a later date.

    Here! Here! Incredible to meet so many friendly faces in person. Had a blast. Five stars.

    P.S. @Serafina, get that challenge coin ready - won't be so forgiving the next time. ;)

    Thank you Berek!

    What to expect in the future for SOTACON-Austin...

    Guys, we had a great SOTACON!!!
    During which, I tried to make my way from guest to guest to have a personal sit down with them and get their feedback.
    I appreciate everyone's ideas and input to make this event bigger and better.
    A few things that are definite that I can report to the community immediately...

    #1. The SOTACON-Austin venue will be perpetual... In other words, the show MUST go on.
    #2. The location of every year's SOTACON-Austin will be at the Renaissance Hotel until they can no longer accommodate.
    #3. Ticket sales will always START on January 1st at midnight and END about 60 days before the event.
    #4. Hotel room blocks will NEVER be part of the equation again when setting up the CON.

    Holy smokes! What a great time!
    To me, the dance party and raffle was freaking EPIC!!!
    I had to pinch myself a few times to make sure it was really happening.

    Folks, the team and I are already planning the 2018 SOTACON-Austin, and started before we left Austin.

    CLOAKS!!!
    I gotta nail down how Port wants to do it, whether they are gonna put the cloaks in everyone's account or if I give them out in game.
    If I give them out in game, I will probably mail them all out when I receive them via the in-game mail system.

    Hell of a time guys... LOVED IT, LOVED IT, LOVED IT!!!

    I need to chime in here and tell everyone how much fun I had! OMG...from beginning to end, it was epic. :)

    Thanks to everyone who worked so hard to organize it, to all the Devs who participated and to the community members who were able to attend. I have many fond memories and I had so many laughs it hurt...lol.

    Hugs to all!
