  • GenCon: Pack List

    Since everyone else is doing it, I figured I’d share my GenCon packing list. This is pretty much a direct cut and paste from Remember the Milk, with some comments added.

    Oh a quick note, since I live about 4 hours from Indy I get to drive.  This allows me to pack and bring things that others would likely have to go without.

    • 5 hour energy – I have late night games on Wed, Thurs and Friday.  I may need an energy boost.
    • Bags – My D&D backpack for “daily supplies”, another bag if the backpack ends up being too small for somethings, and an empty garage bag for dirty clothes.
    • Clothes – Several changes of clothes, more than I will likely need.
    • cough drop (ricola) – Pretty sure I stole this from Ryan Macklin, but I can’t find the link right now.
    • Deodorant / Cologne – Don’t add to the gamer funk if you can avoid it.
    • DFRPG: Cheatsheets
    • DFRPG: Main plot
    • DFRPG: Opening Scene
    • DFRPG: Pre-Gens – All of these for my Dresden Files RPG game I’m running Friday night.
    • Dice: DnD, d6s, FATE – Have dice will game!
    • Drink (Mixes and Alcohol); Orange Crush, Coke – Putting the “drunk” in Drunken D&D.
    • Fate Point tokens – For my DRFPG game.
    • Food?
    • Granolla bars – Good for a fast snack.  I’ll munch on these throughout the day.  (Food was more of an issue at DDXP where I played in every slot, every day.)
