I heard, if you're playing a 5e game, if you're a VIG and your character dies, you can pick another player's character to die instead. Just once per game though, and only 5e, harsh.
That's only if your playing in a game I'm running. However your character is also instantly resurrected in my game if you give the DM a Maple Bar, so...
Maple bar? I am unfamiliar with Canadian nightlife, so I don't know that I can take advantage of that rule.
I'm from Alaska...although some of my best friends are Canadian! They don't have Maple Bars where you're from?Did I just derail a conversation?
I'll say something VIGish to get us back on track. The program's biggest draws are the hotel perk, Lounge (and all it's amenities) and the Swag. Which is largely different games or merchandise from the Exhibitorrs and a few extra goodies we throw in.
Just googled maple bars. We have them in Iowa, we just call them Long Johns. Not to be confused with the old school knitted thermal underwear called long johns. Maple as a donut topping only got popular here maybe five or six years ago though.
I have never been a VIG, but I did find a VIG swag bag one Gen Con Sunday sitting on a window ledge in a hotel crosswalk with a sign saying "Free, Take It" on it. It had some cool stuff in it indeed.
