  1. It’s rare that I regret my choice of occupation. Were I in a more lucrative line of work, I’d be able to attend — and nothing would keep me from going. Your beer is far better than ours.


  2. If I can create some excuse and time for business to go to Frankfort Germany, I will be there. I will see if I can set-up some business meetings and schedule a flight.


  3. Heya,
    I finally made an account to comment here.
    At our convention, I would like to suggest some activities. Specifically, it would be nice to hear some experts talk about playing certain races. How about a lecture from Spacesquad on the crystals, or Thin Lizzy on the lizards? Mentar might like to lecture on the colonies, and DM on the borg. Robijntje could speak on the privateers, and I know a lot about the fascists. Of course these things depend on who will be there.

    Perhaps people prefer a more informal gathering, but I found myself thinking about what we could learn from each other. And filling an agenda this way is a lot easier than it seems.


  4. we can definetely work something like that out 🙂 i think most of us are interested in the races that they are beginning with or never have played before, and it would be a great way to get some real and practical insights from expert players.

    i will set-up the registration in the next days btw – we have the poll running for a month now, so it might be the right time to make things happen 🙂


  5. I have not been in Germany in over 20 years. Wish I could get there, sounds great.
    Any plans to video some of the discussions and post on line?


  6. there are plans to record the convention yes, at least partially – it depends a bit on the footage and the results of the discussions if there will be something publisheable in the end.. but yes. since not so many people are reading this: theres also a plan to organize something to dial in inbetween for those who can’t come 😉
