Hello everybody who couldn't join us (or doesn't remember), here's our selected selection of carefully selected photos. (Sorry Vainamoinen, somehow you didn't end up on any of the pictures... is it possible that you're a vampire?). Note that we took artistic liberties regarding chronology or actual events:

image
It's a hot summer day in Cologne.

image
What better thing to do than spending the day in a dark, crowded, sweaty, smelly, foggy huddle of nerds?

image
Two unknown, grumpy nerds taking the train to god knows where...

image
Mermaid is wearing a red wristband, indicating she's obviously a grown-up already (having access to all the violence and porn you could imagine).

image
One lanyard to bind them all!

image
Laserschwert's evil twin brother...

image
image
image
A fine piece of art.

image
image
Do want!

image
Yay!

image
A mighty pirate on his mighty way home.


Later that (or some other) day:

image
Majus eagerly waiting for goodies...

image
The goodies arrive!

image
Goodies for Mermaid :D

image
No goodies for Majus :(

image
I got to sign something for Mark! It's a mad world...

image
Now everyone's happy...

image
... even Majus. No goodies, but beer :)

image
image

image
That's the second biggest bottle of Vitamalz I've ever seen!

image
Honey, I'm home!

image
Laserschwert, Majus, Mermaid and Mark!
(also note Mermaid's freakishly long arm)


Bonus picture:

The morning after...

    Thanks a bunch! And yes, I always try very hard to be the vampire and actually don't want to be in any picture posted online. I'm more of a grey eminence... you can see parts of me in the "signing" picture, that's about enough.


    xspider has shot one of me while I was unsuspecting... may he be gentle... or be banned... ;)



    /edit: WAIT!! Was that the ORIGINAL of Purcell's painting??? Damn, I knew there was at least one reason to go to the gamescom.

    If Laserschwert has to sign it, there's actually only one explanation.

    ENJOY!

    Looks like you guys had a marvellous time! Thanks for posting pics so we can all live it vicariously in retrospect.
  • How happy and balanced you are, such vibrations.
  • The coolest thing was actually having Mark (Darin) at my apartment, while we were playing "The Trial and Execution of Guybrush Threepwood" via my HD-projector and getting somewhat of an interactive live developer commentary by him, although Mark was terribly tired from countless hours of interviews at the Con that day... thanks so much, man!!

    That sounds awesome. Wish I could have been there! Could you share some of the anecdotes he mentioned?
