Well, tis the season to begin thinking about ICON. Three months to go. Put your thinking caps on and begin toying about those ideas you all have for running games at ICON. Looking forward to seeing everyone on April 4th.

OK, birthday buddy telepathy going on or something because I almost posted about ICON earlier today (well, yesterday by now).

When I logged into the site, saw there were 99 days left until ICON and thought about typing a message to the tune of "99 Bottles of Beer On the Wall" but then sanity briefly re-asserted itself and I didn't do it.

They updated their guest schedule and I have to say, I'm impressed. I'm also shocked they got major slots filled this early (well, early for them). Last year they almost went to the wire before they announced media guests.

And for the first time in years they have a good comics guest. Dwayne McDuffie is AMAZING and the genius behind Justice League Unlimited. I can't wait to meet him face to face. I interviewed him years ago but it was all by phone.

Is this also known as the New York Comic Con?

Is anyone in for discounted group tickets this year, or is everyone just buying their own on-line?

What's our schedule (Fri - Sat - Sun)? Who's scheduling what and when?

Thanks,
Bob

To Jame: No, NY Comic Con is something else entirely and held in Manhattan (and not at all affiliated with San Diego Comic Con International even though NYCC is following SDCCI's playbook for growth). ICON is totally different and held out on the eastern part of LI.

To Bob: Count me out for group discount tickets. I get my membership through a different route. Speaking of which, I have to start hunting down who my contact will be this year...

I already pre-ordered my weekend pass, for the first time, so I wouldn't be taking part in a group package, either.

I did something dumb and got rid of my Stony Brook idea last year... I'm sure I totally could have tricked them into thinking I was a student! Laughing

That's a shame because, no, they don't check student IDs very carefully. I know someone who used their Suffolk Community College ID a year after it expired to get student registration prices. Oh well.

Ah, so they're different. Thanks, Morgan!

*Notes at self to look at Comic Con location, day price and train fare*

uh-uh. Expect tighter security at ICON this year. In case you haven't heard, someone on campus today might have had a gun.

According to the news report, a guy around the age of 20 tried to steal something from the cafeteria in the Student Activity Center (you all know that building well) but as he failed and tried to leave, his jacket opened and one person thought they saw a gun inside his jacket. Now they have no proof this person had a gun and the person ran away before security intervened but the campus acted as if there was someone with a gun around.

Nothing bad happened, no one was threatened let alone hurt and when/if they catch the guy, it might turn out to have been something else entirely BUT while the campus has gone back to normal, expect backpacks and such to be searched a little more thoroughly when we first show up to get badges. If we're lucky, things will have calmed down by then but with about 5 weeks to go, they might still be very cautious by then.

With us there security improves anyway.

Oh, Pat - guess you won't be able to bring your Back-Pack Razz

Seriously though, most of us are in that line of work and all of us will be understanding.

Yeah, but it still means the lines to search everyone will take longer. Having a badge doesn't affect that.

I can only hope they perform a few well-selected strip searches in public areas. Laughing

Then again, I can't wait to see someone dressed as a Gorn or a Wookie or a storm trooper being asked to take off the costume so security can check for weapons. After all, probably 25% of the show's population is carrying around some kind of plastic gun.

It would be tragic though to see all the gamers, who are actively "in-character", attempt to pull out their phaser/light saber/sword/magic spell/etc and try to take out an actual terrorist. Someone please hold Bill back if a real event should occur.

Amen to that! I might have to take a gaming break for a related time honored tradition: grabbing a window seat in the SAC (Student Activity Center) cafe with a cheesesteak while hunting for eye-candy. I think that's an accurate depiction of how I spent my time between classes. Or the time I was supposed to be spending in classes, for that matter. Laughing
