I've been meaning to ask you guys if you've played Rome: Total War. It's an RTS, but all the unit building is regulated to a sort of civ-lite overhead map. The actual real time battles focus solely on strategy and unit tactics. Unit positioning, elevation, troop moral, weather, and several other such variables are taken heavily into account. It's design almost completely eliminates the "I can click faster than you" element of other RTS games. Even the sheer number of units (sometimes numbering in the thousands) makes the battles fairly entertaining on it's own.I have been told that Medieval: Total War is better than Rome, but my computer cannot run it so I can't really vouch for it.
Right now, I'm planning to come to Otakon & East Coast PAX, hopefully I can convince more of my friends to come along so we hang out and game.
Just remember that if they don't come with you, you will have people on the east coast willing to hang out with you.
For all you Pax goers that DON'T live in the area, how much money did you end up spending?
And the tickets for the con?
So, one thing you guys keep saying is that PAX is one-whateverth of the population of Seattle, which, much as I like the idea, is untrue. PAX registration numbers are turnstile counts, measured in person-days. Each day you attend the con, you count as one person; There's only ~1/3 that number of people in the convention center at any one time.
The reason why people probably aren't joining the forums, is because you're, (SCRYM), such Grammar Nazis.

Before you do a D&D; 4E episode, you guys really should listen to some of thePA/PVPpodcasts where they play through an adventure. I've listened to them all a few times, just because those guys are fucking hilarious - especially when you add Scott Kurtz - and I could listen to them open their mail and still laugh. They provide a good indicator of what the game would be like to play through, and I was NOT sold; you're totally right on with your first impressions. The podcast is entertaining just for the banter and the comedic timing, not D&D.;
In general, I recommend checking outGrammar Girlif you really want help improving your grammar. It's a really neat, friendly site and podcast. ^_^
