    Eh, it isn't really a good place for a meet. It's loud, crowded, and generally dark. A poor place to actually socialize.

    It's a good time to be had AFTER a meet though. I've been to Kissimmee's and Toronto's and both were fun shows.

    Edit: Okay I guess it's in Orlando, not K-SC

    I've never ever been, the Dallas one was built after I moved from there. I'd still love to go, sis and I could dust off our renn faire clothes!

    Lived there for a short bit.

    I could throw a rock and hit Knott's Berry Farm.

    To get back on topic though, I would be down for such a meeting. If you all are serious and can get to Lex KY, we can do it in an empty barn on a 60acre horse farm.

    I imagine you need to find a spot near Virginia if you want the Dev Team there. But it sounds neat. Wouldn't any Renaissance Festival be about the same thing and a lot more player friendly? I know ours has meeting areas for groups.

    Yearly Renaissance Fairs, as suggested by Capt., would probably be better. And given the general environment, would be even cooler if anyone wanted to dress up. :)

    And you can't dress up like Dr. Who and say your time traveling. That's BS!

    I'm not a real life pirate :p I have a chainmail tunic, white shirt with the puffy sleeves, and a sword belt. That's about it. Have to work with that. Plus the festival is being a butt about swords these days so that's out. So I gotta leave the sword at home. To many drunks sword fighting, lol. They even got rid of the pickle man here, he was the best too. Most insulting off color person I ever heard, lol.

    OMG your Renn. Faire isn't Scarbourgh Faire in Tx is it? The OK Renn Faire used to have the BEST pirate group and the owner of the Castle (the guy's renown for his acts of ****** baggery) screwed them over and ticked them. Full story long and complicated but they'll come back to OK Ren Faire when hades freezes over. So it's OU Renn Faire but it falls in Apr. always hard to get a weekend free in Apr. Best bunch of pirates! Here's their website http://www.thebilgepumps.com/. LOL last time I was at OK Renn Faire a drunken "Scot" in a kilt mooned the whole Ceilidh. Have any of those at yours? Oooof there's a sight best Unseen! LOL

    Ours is in Michigan. It gets a little racy but I haven't seen anything over the top. Although tipping the bar maids seems to turn into something from a strip club. http://www.michrenfest.com/ As long as Ded Bob is there I'll go. http://www.dedbob.com/ Hey audience! Hey what?

    Well in your case we could make an exception. You could also dress as a time traveling Catholic school girl or a nurse. Just an idea...

    Medieval Times is fun but it's really not good for a gathering--it's more like watching a play with a table and food in front of you. A Ren Faire would probably be better--more sandbox and less linear quest. ;)

    Medieval Times is the equivalent of watching a movie in terms of its function as a social gathering, I would say. Still an enjoyable show though.

    If you do go, just remember that the Green Knight is the superior knight. Red and Blue Knight are fatherless bastards who also smell like elderberries. I don't remember the other colors because they are irrelevant fodder for Green Knight.

    Chicago is strategically located in the middle of the US. Two big airports, decent sized hotels, lots to do.

    Chicago is an absolute cesspit and I'd sooner spend a week in a warzone.

    Edit: I mean an actual, declared warzone, as opposed to Chicago's average weekend statistics.

    That is only a small area outside of downtown. Downtown is quite beautiful, clean, architecturally interesting. Trip Advisor ranks Chicago as #2 for top destinations in the US.
