    Recently got back from ConnectiCon, where I went to the panel.

    I forgot to ask: are we allowed to spill some of the things said there in this forum? In particular, that announcement...?

    And by the way, for anyone on the edge about seeing the Erfworld panel at the con, I highly recommend it. Not only was it fun to listen to them, they gave us candy!

    I'll try to make it for Penguincon, seeing how it's about 15 minutes from me.

    I assure you I am actually quite the opposite. I just happen to value the desires of Rob and Jamie more than the people on this forum. Sorry.

    I do hope I get some sort of response soon, though I can understand the delay. They did say that the forum-goers scare them more than Wanda. And they went out of their way to say just how much Wanda scares them.

    The evil was that you stuck the question out there publicly, thereby taunting us, as opposed to sending them a PM.

    Shh, this is fun.

    All right, all right. They had the artist of the spinoff join them at their little table about halfway through the panel. It is the man with that smiley-face yarmulka, who happens to be an artist. Apparently, he mentioned to Rob Balder the idea of him doing some guest comics, and Rob decided to run with that into an idea of a spinoff. I think they said it's planned to be at least 100 pages long. They kept us in suspense about the plot itself.

    Some other details I can remember from the panel...

    They gave us candy!

    Apparently Wanda is so booping scary right now because Rob and Jamie keep one-upping her scariness, in both behavior and appearance.

    They have been approached by several gaming companies already about making a game based off Erfworld. They are going to wait and see what the best offer they receive is before they sign with any company.

    Rob does the lettering of the comic, which allows him to take a second pass at writing the dialog to better fit it to the art. This is apparently a genius strategy. The same system is being used for the spinoff, though with a different artist and author; results are reportedly similarly as good.

    As far as plot goes, all they gave us was that veiling has plenty of drawbacks. We'll find out what they are shortly.

    Speaking of plot, the "PLOT" panel is the central joke of Erfworld. And they were selling their first Erfworld t-shirts with had the panel on it, and they look very good.

    More details as my memory comes back to me (it was a exciting weekend, gimmie a break) and as other people from the panel hopefully start posting here.

    Okay, so not commenting on anything that was said at the panel, here's a summary of CTCon...

    It was a very good con, and we were treated graciously by the organizers. We thank them for their work and their kind hospitality. I think most of the people who were not with us had a great time.

    Unfortunately, we had a curse on our trip that lasted all 4 days. It was an uphill battle all the way, full of obstacles which were outside our control. From the screen printer delaying the shirts, to double-puncturing a tire in the rental van, to traffic and rain and other logistical nightmares, to personal drama (not between me and Jamie, for the record), to various other weirdness and disappointments and distractions...it was just an ordeal.

    There were good parts, for me at least.

    I loved seeing all of those other webcomics creators, too many to name. Suffice it to say that if you read many webcomics, some of the creators of your favorites were there. I'm as much a fan of creators as I am of their comics, and I got to spend time with some of my favorite people.

    The Erfworld panel was fun to do, but I wish I had thought more about what we'd say and do. Stolen candy is sweeter!

    My concert with The FuMP went well, and the crowd dug it. Thanks to Luke Ski and Sudden Death for coming out.

    All in all, there were things I wish we had done differently. But I don't know what we could have done to make this con work better for us.

    Next time, we fly.

    Hey, if you're flying to DragonCon but want to take some big/bulky stuff (within limits) let me know. I'd be happy to throw it in the back of my car. I'm driving down from Maryland that Thursday(30th). Only catch, we're going straight from the con to a VA timeshare the week after, so I wouldn't be back up here until the following Sunday (9th).

    In case anyone is interested, since this site isn't just OoTS, we are playing around with the idea of having a forum meetup for members attending GenCon.

    Get in on the planning and the details going on here in this thread on Friendly Banter.

    http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showthread.php?t=50949


    And I am looking forward to meeting pclips and whoever else might be around from these creative endeavors at GenCon.

    I saw on goblinscomic.com that the author will be sharing a booth with Rob.
    I thought you might be interested...
    This and more is in the "Goblin News" section at the bottom of the page.

    For those of you who will be at the Con, I'll be on two panels (Thursday 1pm and Saturday 8pm) and Danielle and I will be at our booth (number 2241) which we will be sharing with Rob Balder of Erfworld fame. Also at our booth, will be the infuriatingly talented Patrick Rothfuss. The amazing author of The Name of the Wind, who will be signing autographes and probably stealing my fries.

    thanx to Abardam for these fantastic Erfworldstyle sigatars
    For the awesome 'The Wolf'-sigatar I thank Sampi.

    From Rob's right to left (or left to right if you are looking at it):

    Goblin for Goblins webcomic: "Shouldn't that be 'Inter-Universal?'"

    Redcloak from OOTS: " Yes,and I'm sure nitpicking will fix it up right away."

    Gobwin from Erfworld: "Technically, I'm a Gobwin..."

    Edit: BTW, had a great time helping you out Rob. Actually turned out to be one of my happier memories of this years GenCon. Hope you got all the shirts sold! RP

    Yeah I am fairly annoyed at the general disorganization and lack of communication on the part of Dragon*Con this year, but I am going. I will be on the EFF Track webcomics panel. I will have concerts on the concourse and on the filk track and will be in the big comedy show. I will have a table in the Hyatt for selling CDs and some of that Erf merch, including whatever "Goblin Solidarity" shirts may be left after we put up the page for web sales of those. If you're at Dragon*Con you will be able to find me.

    Darnit! You reminded me that I wanted to get back the booth and pick up a T-Shirt. Grrrrrr.... Darn advancing in the NASCRAG 'tournament'. *shakes fist*

    Also, Trog forgot that pclips's Gf might be able to show him how to make a duct tape wallet.

    Well actually no I didn't forget. I stopped back to the booth and met her. She seemed very nice but was busily manning the booth. She was, however, fiddlling with duct tape at the time. Which made me remember the comment and I brought up the wallet comment but honestly I didn't figure any wallet was really forthcoming. She politely declined. Understandably.

    And the panel was very interesting I thought. And entertaining. Many good questions were asked and the answers varied from person to person which provided a more realistic and personal snapshot of what goes on behind comics. It would appear that I have a LOT more planning, writing and work to do before any comic of mine would be ready to be published it seems.

    Though I did get a bit of a kick out of Rob's reaction to one of the other panelists saying that they were working on the comic for several years before they started on it. The look would best be described as this one:

    Hrm if I read right the dealer room/comic alley will be at the Hilton. Does that mean you will be there instead of the Hyatt? Or are you grouped with the band/performer groups that will have tables at the Hyatt? sorry.. I'm a DragonCon newbie..
