Keeping you all updated, but the dice have been ordered, and I just received a notification that the KantCon mugs have officially shipped from the factory in Miami, Florida.

As soon as they arrive, I'll be posting pictures.

These mugs are going to some lucky supporters, and we will have mugs to sell at the registration table this year!

Thanks, again!

Update #7

TheLoneGunman to be at KantCon 2011

Comment
Alex Boyd, aka ... TheLoneGunman

Yep, we're gonna have a Lone Gunman at KantCon ... well, ok, perhaps some explanation!

Kansas City area Filk artist, TheLoneGunman (Alex Boyd), is going to be on hand at KantCon 2011 to play his assortment of oddball, geek-related, acoustic music during the breaks between gaming slots.

Alex is a local musician who has a love for all things geeky, nerdy, silly, science fiction, the people that love that stuff too and his love for folk music.

So come on down to KantCon 2011, and enjoy some local music at the same time you're enjoying hours of great gameplay!

A Statement from TheLoneGunman

"My music is simple, stemming from the fact that I spend all my time practicing drums and not guitar and my love for the Ramones. The songs are about whatever it is I feel like singing about, from silly songs with no point whats so ever, to epic stories where the tunes are like chapters in a book and everything in between."

You can learn more about TheLoneGunman by visiting his website where you can listen to some of his tracks.

So what are you waiting for?  Pre-Pre-Register to attend KantCon 2011!

    Finally, our Road Warrior from last year, Tracy, will be putting his own skin on the line, and you get to choose his next tattoo. As Tracy is going into teaching, there are some restrictions, of course, but he's a good sport. The tattoo will be put on his body sometime in the year between KantCon 2011 and KantCon 2012. The purchaser of the tier will pick the tattoo but Tracy will pick the size and location of said tattoo. The tattoo must be something related to tabletop RPGs. Tracy will be funding the tattoo but if the purchaser of the tier wishes to contribute, it would not be unwelcome.
