Conception Early Booking

Postby Mick Red » 8:28am on 06 Jul 12

Due to the awesome amount of games run by Pompey GM's last year we(you) are in a position to pre book 2 x 3 bed lodges before booking commences on the 1st august.... I will not be attending but thought this info may be useful for anyone wishing to go without the lottery of booking at midnight as it will sell out in under 30 seconds

I'm looking to book a 4 bed lodge. That's a reliability of 100%. Full payment up front just like last year. None of this deposit business, then the rest of the paymen, Full payment via cheque made out to the Conception organisers. Old school roleplay reliability from the AD&D Campaign group.

Mike you've just texted me to ask if I'd like to take one and I said yes but have you already given them out? If not I will have one if you have no worries will get in touch with organisers to see what I need to do to secure one

Ang on a minute, I'm after 4 bed (as per my message). That sorts the amount of people we have, with no one left out. Can that booking you've made be made for two 4 beds instead? That way, Conception team have a guaranteed sale of two lodges, and must get more for 4 bed, as compared to a three bedder. If not I'll be trying to book on the first August, but would prefer to not, and to pay up front, via cheque made out to the Conception team.

People may combine their tickets to qualify for this offer.


So, not a 4 bed apparently.

Both,

I don't mean to put a downer on it but I don't see how you are going to fill these lodges with the remnants of the crew.
You are better off giving both lodges to Elysium. Then if people like Al or Macca want to go along and as long as Elysium, Arky, Darren and James (assuming that's who is going) don't mind then they bunk in with those lot.

I'm struggling to think of anyone who will be going to be honest. Maybe Shane is also up for it but I don't know.

For the record I'm out this time round, Ned will (hopefully) be out of the country, Rich and Cathy are busy spawning and I haven't heard from anyone else.

So if it were me like I said I would give the two lodges to the DnD crew and let them advertise the two extra beds they would have. Sure they would be split between 2 lodges but at least they are guaranteed a place. First things first though....

Who wants to go? and can commit to it? I don't mind helping to organize but you must show an interest by posting an 'I'm in on this topic' and be prepared to pay your deposit BEFORE 1ST AUGUST

Cheers

You know, the whole way Conception works. To play a game you buy game cards from the desk. Every player hands over a game card to play the game. The GM takes the game cards and the sign up sheet back to the desk and swaps them for a GM card. That GM card is what is giving you the booking perks. It's the whole economy of the Con and how it makes most of its money for charity.

Mick has pointed out that Pompey earned enough GM cards to qualify for the perk of early booking. It doesn't 'cost' cards to get the perk, they just have to have been earnt at Conception 2012 and they have been.

It's the thread that's about the new perk.

I received a pm on this thread, but we Dutch Invaders have already secured our own 3-bedder I think. Brenda should know more 'bout that. Me, IJdo, Brenda and Derek at least are going :)

You know, I didn't know that! I didn't know that's how it worked. Anyway, The D&D crew want a 4 bed all to themselves. Sorry, but that size, it just suits as perfectly. So we'll try and get one on 1st August. I'll likely be running a game, I will be banging my name down for a stack of games (as I didn't get one last year), and also intend to leave the lodge, get into the big wide world and maybe even socialise a bit. So, sorry, but we need a 4 bed.
