The party was spiffy and I was able to show off some of my acquisitions. I had purchased laser-burned wooden badges for everyone in the DnD group and also got to show them the metal magic item collectables I had purchased. Everyone prtty much thinks I'm crazy when it concerns the latter.
Anyway, full recap within the next few days I'd imagine after I get all the pictures downloaded to the computer, resized, and then uploaded to photobucket. Overall, it was a lot of fun and I was very pleased with the trip. Next year, I'm hoping to be able to convince more members of the game group into coming along.
