We were very happy to welcome Vincent Baker aka Lumpley Games to AnonyCon, and we hope to enjoy Dogs in the Vineyard, Apocalypse World and more throughout the year. Vincent's games have opened up wonderful worlds of narrative RPGs to me and many others on staff, and we're so glad to have him join us.
Where to start?!
We all owe a huge batch of gratitude to Alisa for coordinating our volunteers most ably. She recruited our fantastic team, scheduled them for all the various duties and made sure our HQ was always staffed and ready for action. Thanks to Alisa we have smiling faces ready to answer all your questions, badges ready to go for pick-up if you pre-registered, and food circulated around to our generous GMs.
I'm very grateful to have Alisa's help, and I look forward to working with her each year because I know she's so talented with logistics and with Getting It Done.
Thanks Matt and Meghan (and James and Katie too) for making our video game room happen as well as supplying a boatload of board games for open play. We're always glad to have these extra options for periods of downtime or those odd in-between hours. Thank you also for being patient and knowledgeable while teaching any number of games to new and old players.
Big thank you to Art for organizing Pathfinder Society, Legend of the Shining Jewel, and Fellowship of the White Star games and judges. We always love expanding the diversity of our games and scenarios, and Art helps us make that happen through his network and work recruiting players.
We're all grateful for the help of Lisa S, bringing tons of carefully made and protected muffins for the benefit of our staff, volunteers and GMs. Her cooking kept us happy morning, noon and night, and she provided valuable support at our prize table and the upstairs badge pick-up desk. Thanks again Lisa!
Emily brings great energy to the registration desk with her experienced and upbeat help. She greeted attendees upstairs to distribute preregistered badges, helped with the main desk downstairs, and often ran up and down to assist with all the little logistical issues that crop up. Our desk is smoother and smily-er because of her help, and we're very grateful.
Adam's been with AnonyCon from the very beginning, so there's no way I'm able to enumerate all the awesome things for which he deserves my (and our) gratitude. This year his invaluable help with marshaling players made sure both players and GMs were happy and could always participate. He also went above and beyond and wrote games spanning various rule systems, and helped me with the final schedule for the AnonyCon Originals. Thank you Adam, we would not even be here without you.
With so many to thank, I'm throwing the order to the mercy of chaos, and using a polyhedral random number generator to tell me which Thank You I write first.
Thanks to Jennifer J for excellent baking contributions, helping keep volunteers and GMs well fed with tasty muffins brought from the big city. We were very glad for your cooking and your company.
Thank you all for another wonderful convention. AnonyCon 2010 brought great fun and we appreciate all your help in making it a success.
We could not have done it without the help of our dedicated staff and volunteer team, our GMs running the games, and of course all the players who showed up to help us tell our stories and laugh.
Many specific thanks are deserved, so watch the AnonyCon Blog for updates on the awesome folks who make AnonyCon happen.
As we pack everything up and get set for this weekend, our core staff will be offline through Monday. There will likely be some recovery time and rest required before emails resume again. We're excited about an awesome weekend, and we look forward to seeing you there!
