I agree with HL Adalia.  I have always supported the idea of trying to 
recruit at various Sci-Fi, Comic, etc. conventions.  However, the cost 
of this one seems a bit excessive.  Has anyone looked into Her 
Excellency Talana's query about non-profit organizations as opposed to 

And thank you, Adalia.  I was curious to know how much/real /interest 
was found at Tokyo in Tulsa.  If we were searching for lost souls in a 
religious crusade, just saving one would be worth any cost, but there 
are other hopefully less expensive ways to recruit to our game.

Having not attended any conventions for many years, I must admit, 
however, I have no idea either whether this one is likely to be more 
fruitful.  Nor am I up to date on the cost of any of them. When Star 
Base Tulsa used to have them, I was always a volunteer and didn't have 
to pay.
