Time is running out...always.

There are a couple of important points in time coming soon which you want to know about.  First, early registration for Scarefest is ending this Friday at midnight.  Early registration gets you early notification when the schedule goes up, which means you get first pick of games to play.  And secondly, Early Roc rates for rooms at the Winsborough Lodge end on the 31st (that's the new moon, y'all...the long, dark night of the soul you do not want to spend contemplating how you could have saved money if you had just reserved your room sooner).  So go get your tickets and room reservations now: NOT PROCRASTINATING

Meal Tickets

Those of you who attended last year's Scarefest had one, universal complaint: food, and the lack thereof.  Running out and back, wait times at restaurants, lack of both vegetarian and human blood options in delivery services.  This year, we offer a solution: $70 will get you a meal ticket for the whole weekend which includes boxed lunches for Saturday and Sunday, buffet-style breakfast on Saturday and brunchy breakfast on Sunday (brought down to the gaming hall so you don't have to miss any of the demo games), and all-you-can-eat buffet-style dinner on Friday and Saturday (please note this does not include dinner on Sunday, so you may want to plan to visit one of Black Mountain's fabulous restaurants on your way out of town after the con).   FEED ME   We're all about making your gaming experience more enjoyable, and this will be infinitely more enjoyable than wresting fish sticks from a Yeti.  Speaking of which...

Please welcome Minion #24

We didn't mean for this to happen.  We really didn't.  But when a rampaging Yeti bursts into your office and starts eating the fish out of the tank you keep around to reduce stress levels (RIP Egon, Pumpkinhead, and Carol Ann), what do you do?  You hide under your desks, naturally.  But when that Yeti eats the white noise machine, then what do you do?  You cover your ears and rock back and forth praying to The Overlord that it will all end.  But then what if the Yeti goes after the Tiny Turtles, which all the Minions love because they wander around nibbling our toes while we're working and that makes us laugh and that makes us stop crying?  Well, then a Yeti has gone too far and you have to club it over the head with whatever comes to hand.

The problem, however, is that Yetis are actually really big, really badass, and have surprisingly thick skulls.  So clobbering them with rolls of paperwork does not actually discourage them from eating Tiny Turtles for dessert.  We had to make a plan, and fast.  So...we offered the Yeti Minion status and all he could eat in frozen fish sticks and chocolate custard.  Which seemed to work.  And then we felt taken advantage of, so we made him official SpokesYeti on Twitter, too.  We don't know what he's going to do with it, but hopefully it will be entertaining enough to make up for the cost of all those fish sticks.

And no, that's not a picture of him.  That's a Bigfoot, obviously.  But the Yeti is camera shy.
