Penny Arcade cult member Fatrick is setting up the con this year. Here is the latest word from him about how it’s gonna go down:
The Necrowombicon 2002 will be held in Vancouver (burnaby to be specific) British Columbia, Canada.
It will be on the weekend of August the 16th 17th and 18th
the plan is to attend Playdium (huge arcade) on the night of the 16th. We hang there from about 7 to 11 o’clock, and then the night is yours to enjoy.
The 17th I’m planning on renting a Room at the Bonsor Recration Center (attached to the mall that Playdium is in) from 9 am to 1 am. I’m trying to arrange for a few bands to play, grab your ‘puters for some LAN action (bring LAN gear if you can) and your RPG and tabletop games. (Warhammer, D&D….) and we’ll game the day away.
Sunday, you can enjoy the sights of Vancouver, I thought that going to Playland (amusement park, rollercoasters and such) would be a good Idea, but that’s not an official plan.
Anyways, all of the particulars are being arranged on the Penny-Arcade Cult website, in the Necrowombicon 2 forum. Post your questions and comments there.
if that is all the information that you need and you want to go RIGHT NOW, drop a message to [email protected] PLEASE do not send questions or comments to that e-mail address, all your questions will be answered in the forum on PACult. All I need from you to register, is your name, your online handle, and where you’re from. This is a list to see who’s going to be there so I can accurately set things up with appropriate sources (Hotel, Convention hall, Playdium)
Just like the last one, this is not an official PA convention. So if you don’t have a good time it’s not my fucking fault. I think the plan like last year is just to get a bunch of gamers together near an arcade and have a good time. Tycho and I will be there as will Jew and possibly Safety Monkey. I think I may even be able to talk Kara into showing up. If you’re not doing anything else that weekend maybe you could go to.
