Alright everyone. A little bit of a slow start to getting people signed up for this, but that's okay. We still have 46 spots available for players to sign up. I know a lot of people are holding off to assess their finances and whatnot until after Christmas, but remember that it costs you nothing to put your name down.

We'll probably do a confirmation e-mail in mid-January to double check and let people back out if they don't think they'll be able to make it.

Trust me, this is going to be something different than you've seen before. Should be a lot of fun.

I'm now registered and have a hotel room reserved. However, airfare to Detroit may make me rethink going. I pretty much always fly business class because I'm tall (coach ranges from quite uncomfortable to I literally can just barely fit into the seat) and business class to Detroit is stupidly expensive ($1500 which really makes no sense since I'd be going from a Delta hub to a Delta hub). I can fly to Orlando for 1/3 the price I can get to Detroit (even Cancun is about half the price of Detroit). Even coach is around $400 for Detroit.

For next year, can Arcanicon please be somewhere other than Michigan? I'd love to see Minneapolis area but, realistically, I know there are lots of players in Ohio and Michigan - what about Chicago (again)? Kansas City would also work well for me.

Have you considered MegaBus? I took it to Chicago last year for ArcaniCon and traveled 7 hours. It was actually a comfortable and timely way to travel and cost about $50 each way.

The bigger concern is the time. I would never take a bus - I'd just drive but it's a 10 hour drive iirc. I could (and might) do that but it means taking off 1-2 extra days (depending on what time events start on Friday and what time events end on Sunday).

Speaking of which, is there any info available on when events will be running at Arcanicon (especially when they start on Friday and end on Sunday)? That would help me figure out possible alternatives to air travel.

edit: A quick Google search shows several people complaining about lack of legroom on Megabus if you are "taller than average" so it's probably not an option for me.

As there are still some 5 months before the Con, I'm reasonably sure that most of the adventures are still outlines on Mr. Nijssen's computer. To that end, I doubt we'll get an 'official' list of adventures until after Christmas ;)

Oh yeah and you should register for Arcanicon

Any chance of emails or PMs being sent out to those of us that have registered? The form submitted successfully back when I registered but it's always good to get confirmation that everything did work properly.
