Wait, there’s a tourney that gives out commemorative swag?

http://www.pennsicwar.org

It’s less a tourney and more like…Ye Olde Burning Man. With battles and stuff.

The mugs are available for purchase from various vendors. If you buy one from one of the food court merchants, you pay $[FEE] and can get unlimited beverages from that merchant. It’s a sweet deal.

Hmm. I think we’ve been to #pennsic a few times… #mugs

YURT

Oh my god, this yurt is glorious.

I don’t feel like I’m camping. I feel like I’m indoors.

Fuck yeah, yurts.

This year’s #Pennsic medallion may be the nerdiest, most awesome thing I have ever seen. #42 #DontPanic

ERMAGERD PENNSIC

We are off on our yearly journey east.

We may or may not be listening to Welcome to Night Vale from the beginning. (We totally are.)

See you at Pennsic!!

With help from our friend Bret, the yurt got setup for the first time to find out if it stands up.  It does!  There’s a few last things to sort out, but we have a new home for Pennsic.

A lovely view of the Texas sky through the tono.

  

I AM SO EXCITED TO SLEEP IN A YURT AT PENNSIC.

So it looks like The Sisterhood of the Four Axles is going to have its own Ye Olde Rollercon this year. That group is possibly one of the best ideas I’ve had in a long time…
