I'm down with the 4th floor. There are also tables and a sitdown area adjacent to the third floor terrace if we wanted to retreat inside for socializing.

The 4th floor has terrible lighting, though. I remember trying to do a FF shoot up there a few years back, and none of the pictures turned out well at all because of the way the light comes in those windows. It was around noon, too, if I recall, so we'd probably run into the same problem - and with no artificial lighting on. I'd say 3rd floor terrace is a better option, because there's seating indoors and outdoors, AND if it's nice enough and not too hot for people, we can take pictures in <s>Milich's</s> the garden. But I will happily meet up with folks anywhere, as long as my health and scheduling allow for it.

Random note on the Leknaat costume - since I had time and got a fun idea, I'm almost certainly going to be wearing it late some evening, as in after sunset... because I'm making a Gate Rune that lights up.

In light of the schedule being released, and the fact that a lot of people want to attend the concert, I think we should make the morning meeting official.

The 11am morning meeting would conflict with the Kenshin live-action movie premiere.

My sporadic psychic senses already figured that would happen and I was already prepared to skip it.....so I'm good with attending both meets either way but yar......

You should also note though that Pokemon will be on the 3rd floor terrace at 11am...(as well as Dragon Age) highly likely we might need to move....

Monopoly money probably has less chance of melting and staining costumes -- hm, can anyone think of anything vaguely potch-like?

...Foil-wrapped chocolate coins? If I was likely to be at the later gathering, I even know where to get them...

Chocolate could melt though >_> That wouldn't be fun lol

We don't necessarily have to gamble with anything unless you WANT to. Could just play for fun. :P But it could be fun to gamble with something small lol. What exactly does potch look like?

I don't know if anyone has or wants to go buy these or something....but there is this kind of flat glass marble that always reminds me of "potch".... (Even though real potch probably look just like coins...)


The look like this...

Yeah, I don't think potch are ever actually shown in game, so they could be anything. They're probably coins or something, if the Sui1 translation is anything to go by. It might be interesting if we all brought different things to gamble, though. : P

Personally, I wish I still knew where to get pogs. Those would be perfect, haha. Or poker chips. I don't have either, though, so I'll probably bring Monopoly money if I remember to/am able to find the game somewhere in the depths of the basement.

You guys take any pics of playing Chinchiron btw?
In hindsight I should've stuck around for one game but I was starting to die a little in my armor and needed AC break....(not to mention...Flail was misbehaving and kept wanting off)

BTW....didn't get to mention it there....but if we're really doing Suikoden 3 next year I'll aim to fix/bring Sanae Y ^.~
