Hey all!

We're getting closer and closer to Fear the Con 11 and boy are we excited!

Due to mitigating circumstances, Bob Arens has had to step down as an organizer. I want to stress that there are no hard feelings in this decision. We also ask that you do not inundate his inbox with queries as to why this occurred -- if you were meant to know, Bob would have shared it with you already. We will miss him dearly as a Con organizer.

That said, Derek and I both recognize we cannot do this alone and we are pleased to announce that Daniel Knutsen-Frey has bravely stepped up to fill the void. Daniel brings a sardonic sense of humor and dry wit to our meetings and has already proven to be a tremendous asset to the team. We are very pleased to have him! 

Various and sundry logistical reminders to you all!

1) If you have not already, please oh please remember to fill our our Backer Survey!

2) The room block closes in early May, so if you have not already gotten your room, do it now! I'll wait...

3) Sign up for games! We need players, we need GMs so go thee hence and sign thee up!

4) The Charity Games!
It should be noted that Churcher has posted his Traveler game and folks who were NOT backers of the event have been seated in it. I want to stress that anybody who backed his game is guaranteed a seat in his game. Everyone who signed up thereafter will be considered alternates if someone drops out. All charity games will be seated in this way.

Additionally, there will be one game in every slot that will be streamed live on Twitch (these being the charity games and several others at Derek's discretion). Further details to come...

We cannot wait to see you all in June!

      All pledge level games will be streamed. The two charity dungeon slots will be streamed. We will have one more streamed game. These will be defined in the description of the game.

      These 'several other' streamed games WILL have some sort of warning on the ConPlanner so that people can avoid them if they want, yes?

      It would be terribly uncool to just spring that on people AT the con, and force people who, for whatever reasons, aren't willing to be part of a stream to either sit out a slot, or scramble to find someone short on players and settle for what they can get.
