    I found a hotel and airfare package for 550 dollars...
    A little more info would help... anyone familiar with Fairfax should post the nearest airport.. cheapest hotels.. etc..
    Be nice if EA ran a shuttle from the airport.
    Long as cabs aren't too expensive there.. I can eat at King Soopers and be back home under 650 bucks.

    you probably want to fly into dulles. not sure about cab fares. the mythic office is in the suburbs so a rental car might be the way to go. not sure if the metro (dc subway) runs in that area. i don't think it does but i could be wrong. i don't recommend flying into national airport.

    You have to send in multiple invites. And only a certain number of people who send in enough invites to reach Tier 4 will be allowed to attend.

    Were they there together? I don't remember... I do remember the elderly gentleman that passionately stated that the direction of the game was going (Age of Shadows) was going to destroy the village smithy. It was a moving plea.

    Damn i am on the road by that date....but anyway, since i will need to get a new passport first to be able to pass through immigration, and dont want to have to put my fingerprints on it and dont want my iris scanned and a pic made of me as i set my foot again on US ground, i pass....

    I had my fun with immigration officers back in 2002 as i last visited the USA...still cant believe how i was treated *shrugs*

    Its not easy for people outside the USA to visit you guys over there in World 2.0

    But, have fun all, and SPOILER the heck out of it pls!

    Sounds cool. I live like 15 minutes away.
    Yep! The drunk guy came in with like a six pack. I don't remember the lady everyone is talking about, though.

    If you guys want laser tag you're going to need to head to Chantilly. The closest entertainment to Mythic is an upscale theater at Fairfax Corner, and a sandwich from Potbelly's wouldn't hurt either.

    *Doh* Looks like its in Fairfax, VA way on the other side near the DC border. Can the carolinas get some love one of these events?
