  2. Free Comic Book Day

    We had mentioned at the last meeting that free comic book day is coming up on May 7th. If you are interested in finding a store near you that participates, you can find it on their site here http://www.freecomicbookday.com/StoreLocator. This should be a great opportunity to go out and recruit some new people. I know from past years that if you get to the stores right around open there has typically been a good immediate rush. If we have something to hand out to people or if you want to try recruiting people you shouldn't need to stay there very long. I'm going to try talking to off the wagon in Kent about maybe being able to put up a sign and talk to people about joining.
  3. EVE Online, the MMO famous for tales of thievery, betrayal, and massive wars, has a series of graphic novels based on actual events set into motion and carried out by its players. Oh, and the entire run of the story is available for free until June. EVE: True Stories, "Thieves Among Us," is set to be a four issue run. It tells the story of the dismantling of EVE Online's galactic super-power known as the Band of Brothers as seen from the perspective of the player Haargoth Agamar, who was instrumental to the empire's collapse. Developer CCP worked closely with Dark Horse to bring in talented writers and artists onto this series and their work shows. CCP only interfered to make sure that ship models and the language used was accurate with the EVE Online setting, otherwise writer Daniel Way and artists Tomm Coker, Alejandro Aragón, Federico Dallocchio and Daniel Warren Johnson were given free artistic reign to interpret the story. The result is one of the most interesting video game comic series to be released in quite some time. Certainly the first to be based on player events within an MMO. The final installment in "Thieves Among Us" will be released on April 2. From now until June, CCP has allowed the comic to be free through Dark Horse digital, meaning it can be read for free online, or via Android or iOS apps. When June swings around, the series will release as a physical hardcover of all four issues in stores and the digital versions will be available for purchase as e-books. If you're interested in reading the comics, head over to Dark Horse Digital. You'll have to make an account, but they give you a bunch of free comics for joining, so it isn't such a bad deal. For those interested in reading more interesting stories from the EVE universe, check out CCP's True Stories forum where they have collected insanely interesting stories from their players.
  4. Holiday Matsuri

    until
    Holiday Matsuri 2016 is a festive holiday convention held every year in Orlando, FL! This year, the convention will be at the glorious Orlando World Center Marriot, from December 16-18! Last year, the Orlando Guild was invited to table at Holiday Matsuri, and we were even the benefactors of their benefit ball where we raised over $2,000! This year should be even better as attendance is expected to increase, which will help with sign-ups AND the benefit ball fundraiser. Info: This will be updated as more information arrives, but as of right now, this is what we know. Two tables Vendor Hall Gaming Room Benefit Ball All proceeds donated to Extra Life Orlando Guild We are looking for any and all volunteers, so if you're interested, please let this be know. We can't wait for this event, and we look forward to making a great impact for the kids!

  6. GraniteCon 2016 Sept. 17th and 18th

    Link to Calendar Event Hello everyone! We will once again be hosting a table at the Granite State ComicCon on September 17th and 18th. Microsoft will be supplying devices to get sign ups as well as GAEM units again this year! We don't HAVE to put Xbox Ones in the GAEMS units either. I will be bringing Xbox Ones but if anyone has other systems that you would like to hook up, I'm am totally down for that. It may be good for the table to have things other than just Xbox games. Also, if you have any Xbox games you would like to play, bring them! We should have plenty of passes for everyone, but if you are planning to be there all weekend, please buy a pass to help support the Cons that support us! Volunteers needed: Sat. 9am-2pm 3 Volunteers Needed (2 Volunteers/1 Senior Volunteer/Leader) Sat. 1pm-6pm 3 Volunteers Needed (2 Volunteers/1 Senior Volunteer/Leader) Sun. 9am-2pm 3 Volunteers Needed (2 Volunteers/1 Senior Volunteer/Leader) Sun. 1pm-5pm 3 Volunteers Needed (2 Volunteers/1 Senior Volunteer/Leader)
  7. Baltimore Comic Con

    until
    Baltimore Comic Con is held at the Baltimore Convention Center, and is the largest local comic convention. Baltimore Comic Con hosts an Artist Alley small-volume dealer area (similar to many other conventions) and this is where our table/booth will be located. It appears that we will only have one small table and space for chairs behind it. This will be a much smaller area than what we had at Otakon. We will be directly across from concessions, and it appears that we are facing a wall with one of the main entrances to this space in the BCC, so we should get a fair amount of foot traffic. AS THIS IS A LARGE EVENT THAT DRAWS IN ATTENDEES FROM MANY STATES, WE ENCOURAGE VOLUNTEERS FROM OTHER AREA GUILDS TO JOIN US! COVERAGE We will be staffing this booth at Otakon in hopes of recruiting new Extra Lifers to participate in this year's Game Day. Unfortunately, two of our core volunteering team are attending/presenting at the convention and will not be able to provide significant coverage. Since we were unable to confirm our space until the last minute, we are going to be scrambling for coverage. Any individuals interested in volunteering are encouraged to message @Sarah with any questions, or in the comments below. Please RSVP on this page if you intend to help, and comment with which times you are available. Further instructions will be provided throughout the week. We have secured two badges for volunteers, which will need to be switched off throughout the weekend. If it appears that we could schedule a lot more than two people per block of time, then I am able to purchase an additional two badges for a very low price ($25/each). Since we do not have anyone staying in a hotel for this convention, passing badges off may have to happen off-site. PLEASE DO NOT PLAN ON TAKING YOUR CONVENTION BADGE HOME; AS COVERAGE IS CONFIRMED ARRANGEMENTS FOR HAND-OFFS WILL BE MADE. We are in need of volunteer coverage for the following windows: Thursday 7 pm - 9 pm includes badge pickup and booth setup/drop off (no participant-facing time) @Sarah Friday 12 pm - 7 pm @Aaron @Ceraph1216 Saturday 9:30 am - 4 pm @Sarah 11 am - 6 pm @NodnarbDude 12 pm - 7 pm @KJCoin Sunday 9:30 am - 4 pm @KJCoin 11 am - 6 pm - includes booth breakdown @Sarah 1 pm - 6 pm @NodnarbDude PARKING Please plan on parking 1 hour prior to your volunteering shift. Traffic in the city gets heavy in the late morning, particularly on Friday and Saturday. It may become harder to find a garage that is not full on Saturday or Sunday. If you are not staying at the convention late into the evening, it may be better to use public transit into the city. Please reference Google Maps to assist you in locating a parking garage close to the convention center. The Sheraton parking garage is most convenient and obvious as you turn in on Conway (not marked on this Maps search), however it fills up very quickly and it is unlikely you will get a spot there during the convention. Google Map of Parking Garages close to the Baltimore Convention Center Parking passes are pre-purchasable through this link on the Baltimore Comic Con website: http://baltimorecomiccon.com/about/directions/ Parking garages will fill up quickly and it is recommended to pre-purchase parking once you know which days you can volunteer. Volunteers who will be driving to the convention will incur parking expenses. These parking expenses will not be reimbursed, however they can be written off at your end-of-year tax return as volunteer expenses. Please be sure to request a receipt if you use cash-paid event parking. Retain a copy of your receipts for your tax records. PUBLIC TRANSIT The Baltimore Convention Center has it's own light rail stop with service from the Red, Yellow, and Blue lines. MARC Trains run into Baltimore from more distant county departure points, and stop nearest to the Baltimore Convention Center at Camden Yards, which is a comfortable walking distance of several blocks. For further information about using public transit, please visit the Maryland Transit Authority website at https://mta.maryland.gov/. If choosing the Light Rail, it is suggested that you purchase a day pass. You can also message @NodnarbDude with public transit questions. IF YOU INTEND TO USE PUBLIC TRANSIT, PLEASE BE AWARE OF HOURS OF SERVICE BEFORE COMMITTING TO A SHIFT. Volunteers who will be driving to the convention will incur transit expenses. These transit expenses will not be reimbursed, however they can be written off at your end-of-year tax return as volunteer expenses. Retain a copy of your receipts for your tax records. ATTENDING PANELS, EVENTS, OR EXPLORING THE CONVENTION At this time, we are not entirely sure if the industry badges provided by Baltimore Comic Con will allow normal access to non-dealer areas of the convention. This section will be updated with further information as it becomes available. During your volunteer shift (especially since coverage is going to be minimal), you are not permitted to use your badge to attend events or panels. You are expected to be present at the table and actively recruiting future Extra Life participants. Before or after your volunteer shift, if your badge does not need to be handed off to another volunteer, you are welcome to explore the convention. All badges MUST be turned in before leaving the Baltimore Convention Center/Hilton unless otherwise instructed. You may not attend off-site events, and you may not attend 18+ panels. Badge hand-offs will be coordinated via group text message. If you attend an event, please be sure to remove/conceal your Extra Life name badge. Before, during, and after your shift — especially every minute that you wear that convention badge — you are representing Extra Life, Johns Hopkins Children's Center, and the Extra Life Baltimore Guild. Baltimore Comic Con has generously waived their fees for us in order to make it possible for us to attend and volunteer at this event, It is very important that we maintain a great relationship with the staff at Baltimore Comic Con so that we can continue to attend. Remember, you are representing a children's charity. Use common sense, and check with @Sarah if you aren't sure if the panel or event you'd like to attend is appropriate. To consider and plan out panels and events you'd like to attend, download the Guidebook app from Google Play or iTunes. This is a great resource for additional information about the convention (hours, directions, and updates). LUNCHES AND POTTY BREAKS If you need to take a quick bathroom break and you do not have backup coverage at the booth, please take any loose valuable items with you (i.e. laptops, tablets, cell phones). There will be a small lock box available in our booth as well. There are bathrooms conveniently located in the Artist Alley space. If you have backup coverage at the booth and need to leave to get food or take a bathroom break, please be courteous and let the other volunteer know that you are leaving the table. Lines at the food vendors nearest the gaming hall are horrendous, and it is not practical to leave the convention to purchase food (trust me, the lines will be even worse at normal restaurants). Any food you may be able to purchase will be overpriced convention food. It is strongly suggested to pack a lunch if possible. SIGNING UP TO VOLUNTEER Please let us know when you can volunteer. I will update the event with confirmed volunteer names below the shifts they have agreed to work. We need one volunteer minimum per shift to start off with, however extra coverage during periods that there is a badge free would be appreciated! For additional details, please message @Sarah, @NodnarbDude or @Ceraph1216. Volunteers will receive ongoing updates and instructions throughout the week and during the convention. Thanks so very much for donating your time and energy for the kids! TABLE SETUP & STRATEGY Our table number is A344 and can be located on the map attached below under "Resources." As we will only have one 6 foot table available, our table space will be limited. Electricity is not available without incurring additional fees, so we will probably be operating without electricity for this convention. The Baltimore Convention Center does not provide reliable wi-fi, and we will need to use our own cellular devices to create a hotspot for sign-ups. At this time, I expect that the following will be featured at our table: Prize Wheel with small prizes and raffle for giveaways donated by @KJCoin and @Sarah Participant Brochures Volunteer Brochures Tablets for Sign-up (will be fully charged and have battery backup available for recharge) Our specific strategies for this convention will be finalized in our planning meeting on Saturday, August 27 at Noon. This is a virtual meeting and will be conducted as a conference call. For further up-to-date information about the planning meeting, please see the official post at: RESOURCES Maryland Transit Authority Regional Transit Map Downtown Baltimore Parking Map Downtown Baltimore Visitors Map (Includes Light Rail and Bus Information) Map of Artist Alley Official Artist Alley Instructions
  8. Baltimore Comic Con is coming up on September 2nd and continuing until September 4th. As this is a large scale event that will draw in attendees from the surrounding states, we encourage volunteers from nearby guilds to participate! We have two badges, and will be able to secure two additional badges as needed. These badges will be handed off throughout the weekend. If we are able to flex our coverage up to enough people that we would have more than two people available at any given time, then we can shorten some of the shifts to allow additional time to explore the convention. We will be planning out details of this event this upcoming Saturday during a virtual meeting/conference call. You can find the details at the event page: If coverage (and terms of the badges) allows for it, participants will be allowed to attend panels or events before or after their volunteering shifts however this cannot be guaranteed. People attending Baltimore Comic Con for fun who are willing to provide brief lunch break coverage to volunteers are also encouraged to RSVP at the event below. Looking forward to seeing everyone!

  10. After Titan Comics' first Dark Souls comics series sold out not once, but twice (it is currently on its third printing), it was almost inevitable that Titan would release a new collection tied in with Dark Souls 3. Titled Dark Souls: Legends of the Flame #1, the anthology will feature the work of over six writers adding their own bits and pieces to the twisted, dying world of Dark Souls. Those writers include two returning writers George Mann (Doctor Who) and Alan Quah (Orphan Black) who will pen their tales alongside newcomers Dan Watters (Image Comics’ Limbo), Tauriq Moosa (The Guardian, Mary Sue), Damien Worm (The October Faction), Piotr Kowalski (The Dark Tower, Robocop) and more who haven't been announced yet. Dark Souls: Legends of the Flame #1 will come in several cover variations. Artistic talents from across the industry are lending their skills to illustrate the covers. These include: Alan Quah (Dark Souls), Tyler Crook (Harrow County), Robert Hack(Afterlife with Archie), Jana Heidersdorf and Nick Percival (Judge Dredd, Slaine). If you can't get enough Dark Souls, you don't have long to wait. Dark Souls: Legends of the Flame #1 will release on September 14. View full article
