    5 people, including myself, from Baja will be flying in Thursday afternoon. Our beloved EM Obsidian will be arriving most likely when we least expect him and scare the bejesus out of us. Again.......

    First update on the party:

    In addition to the UO Party being held here, there is some sort of beauty pageant on-going it seems. Lots of women wearing "Miss State" sashes and high heels walking around.

    Been up and down from room to the main event area a few times. They're setting up the main room for the party... big "UO" banner out front. Got in a quick peak at some of the goodies. Looks like they have a nice package for us!

    Probably going to get some hibachi or sushi for dinner later tonite, and then hang near the hotel bar. Picked up a few bottles of booze as well!

    Got to meet some good folks so far... @Riyana @Speranza @Keith of Sonoma @Zuckuss @kelmo @Obsidian and many other folks from Seige, Atlantic, Catskills, etc. Looking forward to how the rest of the party will turn out.

    Saw Star Long and got in a few words with Richard Garriot. It was very cool to see King Blackthorn and Lord British in the flesh!

    Okay, so I just dreamed, for what seemed like all night, that my trip was cancelled at the last minute, and I was PISSED! But here I am, awake at 6:15 and getting ready for the commute into NoVa

    It is authentic though, most medieval rulers had very simple crowns that were pretty much just a metal circlet like that.

    The more powerful ones would have 2 or 3 gems in it, but they just looked like colored rocks, not the shiny rubies and sapphires at jewelry stores currently.

    I'm sure with all that's going on there, questions, socializing...they'd have to keep moving the camera cus ppl move ;)

    I'm sure it's being recorded and we'll get to see it....or snippets of it, when all this chaos is over :)

    Agreed.. with the following exception.. the "Dev Team - What's Coming - Q&A" should be a mandatory live stream imo.
