Thank you for doing this; I appreciate it, and it's a fun way to set aside a particular day to celebrate this thing we love.

Thanks for the kind words - I like to do stuff that creates new traveller players.

One way is through promoting the game and raising awareness about it and all its incarnations. Some flavors work better for some people but its all good because it comes from the same roots.

I live in the middle of the desert, the nearest convention is Bubonicon, so I thought why not do a virtual con in honor of the game? Other people pitched in and helped make it happen, so I am grateful for that. It was Marc Miller's idea- I just organized it.

I forgot to mention: in addition to the Mayday prizes, TRPGHQ is giving out 2 prize bundles to celebrate crossing the 1000 member mark.

One bundle will go to member #1000, an identical bundle will go to a member randomly drawn from the members list (member #1000, and TRPGHQ staff are not qualified to win).

Good luck!

Perhaps he should take a leaf from Donald Knuth's book and offer a cheque for $11.05 to the first person to spot any given mistake. For some reason very few people actually cashed DEK's famous $2.56 cheques.

Just uploaded to YouTube.. subscribers should have just gotten a 30 minute notice.

Event Videos Uploaded
If you missed the live event, you can catch up tonight at your leisure.
I have uploaded the Discussion Panel, Interview with Omer G. Joel, and Interview with John Watts, they are scheduled to go live in less than an hour (at 6pm MST).
If you subscribe to the channel you will get a notification when the shows go live.
I am processing Marc Miller's interview for broadcast on YouTube now - it's an hour and a half long so it will take a little time to upload.
