the dealio: so originally a bunch of us met at the original Reckoning. It was pretty cool. So a lot of us were like "hey let's all be friends" and we were. And then everyone kinda migrated to Raleigh. Pie moved from Virginia into ScumHaus (RIP) then left again. While the actual ScumHaus doesn't exist anymore, we're all still here and we're all still living life and would love to meet you! We've had meets for specific people before (hey it's how we convinced singer to move here) so post here if you wanna come visit and we'll work something out :)

Spoiler: old shit
what you need to know: so a bunch of us met at the original Reckoning and were like "oh shit, we all get along kinda well, maybe we should be actual friends and stuff" and then everyone went "yeah that's a good idea, also I'm going to mill your body for bone dust for my ancient demon summoning ritual" and we were all cool with it

The SCUMHAUS is centered in Raleigh, NC and Reck/Grimm/Ythan/Pie all live there. The rest of the peeps live within 2-3 hours away so we have regular gatherings filled with absolutely no debauchery whatsoever and even a toddler would be safe at these events.

If you are coming to NC, or want to come to NC, post here and let us know and maybe we'll even plan a meet for you (hey we did it with singersigner/esurio). We're a loving little dysfunctional family and we like meeting new people to put them under our toxic spell and forcing them to move to NC so we can sacrifice them to our blood god to join our happy little family!


Spoiler: the original reckoning

eat your heart out, dick clark.

(expired on 2011-12-29 00:00:00)


Dates
Thursday, December 29th, 2011
through
Friday, January 6th, 2011
Special arrangements can be made if you need to arrive earlier/leave later.

Activities
Board Games: I personally own Munchkin, Shadow Hunters (with expansion), Cranium, Pop5, Balderdash, and Clue. We'll need more.
Vidya Games: The ManCave at my place will have a 360, Wii, N64, and PS3. Bring games/controllers (except for N64, I have like six) if you want to use those. Also, we have pretty fast internet at the house, so any internet gaming can be done if you feel like bringing your laptop (or even a PC rig, if you want). LAN night?
Foosball: Reck has will have a foosball table. Tournaments will be had.
New Year's Eve!: We can all either hop the bus to downtown Raleigh for the big downtown celebration, or go out and bar hop, or stay at home and shoot off fireworks from the comfort of our own backyard.
Fire Pit: We will have a fire pit installed in our back yard if you guys want to do a cookout or just have a fire pit night. Mafia by the Fire, perhaps.

Meals
Grimmjow wants to cook for everyone a few nights, so any sort of chipping-in that you guys can muster to help subsidize our costs would be great (feeding 15+ people isn't cheap). On nights we're not cooking, we'll either order delivery or take cars of people out to local restaurants. If you're in the south, you'll have to try some North Carolina BBQ. It's famous for a reason.

Lodging
Reck/Grimmjow's house: We have a four bedroom, 2200sqft house. One room is a guest bedroom. Upstairs, there is a living room with two couches. Downstairs in the ManCave, we have two sleeper sofas, a few comfy chairs, and ample floor space. Bring a sleeping bag/pillow/air mattress just in case.
Gammagooey's Place: Gammagooey has offered for people to crash at his apartment if my place is too cramped.
Hotel, Motel, Holiday Inn?: If you don't feel comfortable being snuggled up right next to another scummer, then there are plenty of local hotels to choose from. I can get more info on this if anyone is interested.

Relevant transportation information:
By car: I live literally within walking distance of I-40 in Raleigh, NC. So pretty much, do whatever it takes to get to I-40, head towards Raleigh, and you're good. I can give more specific directions in private to those who are driving.

--------- Carpool list:
Looking for rides:
Battousai, Fort Wayne, IN
Ranmaru, Philadelphia, PA
Kinetic, FL

By train: The Amtrak station in Cary, NC is the closest to my house. If for some reason you just OH MY GOD CANNOT DO CARY, we can make a trip downtown to pick people up.
By plane: RDU-International is the closest airport (about fifteen minutes away on the highway) and I will gladly pick anyone up who needs a ride. If it's cheaper to fly into Charlotte, NC then you can take a train from CLT to RGH for only $26.
By boat: Don't be a dick. Unless you're CDB.

Summer would be better, as I'd be at State anyway

but I'd probably be able to show up for anything.

Well, I live in Roanoke VA, which is like two-three hours away. If I acquire a car and license by the end of 2011, I might be able to attend some sort of meet around that time.

Also gives me an excuse to meetup with another friend of mine/MS user that lives near Raleigh.

Dec/Jan '12 would work better for me, but this is a total guess on my part - I haven't finalized all my plans for this fall yet.

on a less snark note, tentative yes for it depending on date and whether or not you guys'd be willing to pick me up from the train station (since it's apparently just a $50 train fare from deland to raleigh)

There's a train station less than two miles from my apartment, so picking people up wouldn't be an issue.

Alternatively, the airport is only about 5-10mins. down the highway from my apartment as well.

@Starbuck: Like you have a choice.

taking a plane will be the preferable option should i sometime between now and then have the part of my brain that says don't spend 5x more on travel arrangements forcibly removed by rabid wolverines

the main issues for me will be can i afford to take the time off and when i find a new job will i be able to take the time off (hoping to get an apartment and whatnot sometime within the next couple of months, might make $50 + days of lost wages out of the question)

between dec 18 and jan 16 works best for me; jan 22 is the absolute latest i could go

if you go with summer, i'm available from may 12 or so onwards

I'm trying to figure out when we could do it in December where people wouldn't be busy with family. Perhaps after Christmas. A New Year's meet would be fucking awesome.

PS, if anyone has suggestions for the meet's title, I'm open.

I somehow think people's parents would pass on letting their children attend a meet called "Homorama" or "Fagotron".
I do like "The Reckoning". Perhaps this should just be the sequel to Caffwagon?

Caffwagon II: The Reckoning.

Except, I refuse to give Ether that much credit. >_>

It depends Homorama is more welcoming, Fagotron is more intimidating (you have to say it in a deep voice) but it pairs better with glow sticks

I'd definitely be able to at least stop by for a few hours if it's during winter, I might have an out-of-state internship/job or something by that summer but it's more likely than not that I could be there then too.

The Reckoning is pretty clearly the best title for this.

It needs something involving X's or x-rated. Possible as a subtitle...

But I do like The Reckoning.

Isn't Fagotron Bumblebee's nickname?
