Pax East 2019....

    Good evening everyone! Your ex-admiral has returned... as a private (or whatever else Tann has called the new recruits...) I have no desire to re-assert my control, but I TOTALLY want to fun to come back.

    I have a new job and a new life... and for those of you interested in hearing about it, message me. I'm coming back to the forums.

    However, what I wanted to propose is that we schedule a meetup for Pax East 2019. For those of you early in the Star Citizen campaign, you will remember Pax East as some of the best events around Star Citizen in the early days. Given I am now making money again (a prospect I thought that was not possible only a few months ago), I would like to plan a get-together of people at Pax East in 2019.

    What I propose is that I get a house on AIRBNB for at least a few of us... Tann is free (and you all owe him more drinks than he can handle)... and we split the cost. (I will pay half, but I get the master...) The house will be for all 5 days (longer than the 3 it used to be), coming in the night before and leaving the day after.

    We can cook there or we can go out (and I suggest a mix of both... though I am MORE than happy to cook... and I can REALLY cook... but I will require good scotch to do so)...

    I want this to be a bash. I want to be drunk as a skunk. I want the geekiest of the geekiest to be there. I want to meet the people I have not met... I want the energy that was there in the early days of SUN and Star Citizen. I want to play (and buy) role playing games that we sit and play through the entire event.

    If anybody is interested, email me at james@home-of-james.com (My real name is James if you couldn't tell...).

    I don't want this to die... I want this to actually happen. I love SUN... I have watched it from afar and I am proud to see what has survived through the slow times. I also want you to reach out to ex-SUN members... the ones who left for one reason or another... and get them excited about the game again.

    If you are interested... message me... email me... fuck (sorry Tann) call me at work and we will figure out what works. I miss my friends. I miss the excitement around Star Citizen... and I FUCKING WANT IT BACK!

    Hope to hear from of a few of you soon... and just to piss a few people off... @Servicemen

    Lastly... to all my old friends from the early years... PLEASE message me. It has been too long. I have been a horrible friend... but I want to rekindle what we had.

    Wish I could go, but that's smack dab in pulling loads of all nighters to finish final projects part of the semester.

    You all have fun!

    This is just what I needed in my life rn.


    Especially if it's 2019 PAX as I'll be 'out' on march break hopefully. As well as potentially working in the area... hopefully.

    It is GREAT to hear from you all... it truly is! I have missed my time here.

    This will be a bash! I may even contact them ahead of time to see if I can secure enough tickets for our guild to go. It is still a long way off, but I have found that having something to look forward to makes life a LOT more fun to live.

    For those of you who can't make it... we will figure out a way to make it fun! I'm sure a skype cam or 7 will find their way to the house. And there will be a SUN drinking game for those old enough to imbibe (or old enough to know where your parents keep the keys to the liquor cabinet).

    What I realized during my time away is that SUN is about people... you guys! And me. If any of you remember the early days, I started out as the SUN reporter. I would like to bring that back, but to talk about you. I would love to bring that back in some fashion. (God knows there isn't enough news out of RSI for a weekly, or even a monthly report...)

    We have also lost people during our time apart, for many different reasons. Many will not come back to SUN, but that doesn't make them any less of our friends. If you know someone who has left, but they are still a friend, please reach out and tell them to check the forums again. The game may not be done, but the friendship bonded is far from over... no matter what politics got in the way. (Or how much vodka got in the way... )

    On a personal note, please reach out to me and tell me how your lives are going. I want to catch up on the time I let go by...

    Until we meet again!

    Fuck! I'm up, I'm up...what's happening y'all?

    PAX East 2019 huh?
    We'll I wasn't there for the very early days but yaknow what, fuck it, I'm in!!
    Massachusetts is my home turf, It's only fair I help you all live it up. I only ask that I be excused from my officer conduct by the second round or when I hit it off with some cosplay girl!
    It's about time I met some of you in person anyways!

    Oh Dom... officers have a notorious reputation for Pax East... and if you are hitting on only ONE cosplay girl, Armond Hammer may have to teach you to do it right... (That was a fun night... I don't think my bar bill has ever been bigger...)

    And good to see you Tyrus! I'll be in your neck of the woods (or at least neck of the world) in a couple of months. A quick work trip I've been trying to get the logistics down for.

    Well we have enough to have a go at it... We will talk more. Hopefully it will be a year to get excited about again!

    Exhibiting for which booth? You've come a long way since we first crossed paths at PAX East 2014.

    Glad to hear that things are going well now, James! Hopefully, this game starts adding content soon, so that we can get to playing.
