Getting Ready for Origins

Origins is a kind of a small big con. Its has the small con feel as the atmoshpere is very, very laid back. But its got the big con size. Everything usually goes pretty smoothly at Origins and the pace is very laid back. I'm looking forward to the trip with one exception, the flight to Columbus because Chris Aven booked a early morning departure from OKC, the type of flight that only insomniacs willingly book. Oh well, live, learn, die and forget it all, but remember to never book a flight before six AM if you can avoid it.

What to do at Origins if you're a warlord players.

If you're new to the warlord con scene, know that everyone is really pretty easy to get along with and that if you just be yourself and be outgoing you'll have a great time. Origins is a place where sleep is a crutch, you can sleep when you get back home. Here's a list of what you need to know in the way of non-AEG warlord related events.

Thursday 8-9PM, Warlord Player Gathering (for those 21 and Older) at the Bar On Two. This event is brought to you by the Order of the Doomed Liver.

Friday starting between 7 and 8 PM, Midnight Madness charity tournament, $20.00 entry fee, net proceeds go to charity. The Format is open (Smoke 'em if you've got 'em). Top prizes for Top CE legal deck, Top of Factions, Top Highlander and Top EE Legal deck. This tournament will have some of the best prize support of the weekend

Saturday is for Strategic. Strategic is planned to start around 7 to 7:30 PM on Saturday.

Food, The best place to get food at origins is the North Market, there's a ton of variety. However, I'll tell you where you want to eat. There's a little deli just to the right of the main entrance into the north market. The guy who runs it makes amazing sandwiches. If you see me, you know I'll be eating a Roast beef and Genoa Salami Sandwich w/ Swiss Cheese (Fontinella cheese if he has it available) on Rye.

Anyway, if you make it out to origins, come say hello.
