Redemption day 2

Redemption is going very well so far. I'm playing a spy game as a member of of team Raiders, which involves solving lots of SF-themed puzzles throughout the con. I earned some Drazi points for one of the puzzles, though I see my team is currently losing by 110 points to 175. Some of us just took part in Nigel and Sabine Furlong's Crisis Management live-action role playing game, which was scary but in a good way. The scenario was that we were controlling a nuclear power station in the Battlestar Galactica universe when the second Cylon attack broke, and we had to try to deal with the crisis as best we could. It isn't possible to "win" the game as far as I can tell, it's a question of how badly things have gone wrong when you run out of time. The worst part for me was when I had to order the site security team to use lethal force if necessary to prevent panicked civilians breaking in through the main gates, and they refused.

Apparently Orbital has taken plenty of new members today. I suspect we're going to get some Redemption regulars coming to Orbital as their first Eastercon because it's being run by the same people. As for myself, I'll almost certainly be coming back to Redemption '09. I managed to limit myself to one small book in the dealers' room, which is probably a good thing considering how little space I have in my rucksack.

A bit of a break now, then the masquerade, cabaret, disco, and maybe I'll take a look in at Wobblevision later.
