So, who are the people in the photo?

Not sure if it’s a browser thing (using Chrome), but the video auto downloads every single time I come to the home page. I image it was meant to be embedded.

I have a temporary fix in place. WordPress isn’t playing nicely with me on this one. :-)

The lovechild of a traffic cone and PT Barnum is Lou Agresta, the guy with the book is IronGM Nik Palmer, The guy with the sunglasses looks like Joshua AC Newman, and I’m not sure who the young lady is.

I’ll come challenge you at TotalCon next year, sir. This year I had deadlines, next year, you’re in for it. ;)

Apparently the download every time thing is a Chrome issue. Miranda’s got the fix.

Upon closer inspection, I think the man on the left is actually Rone Barton (the Jade), which makes sense, since he’s one of the MCs with Lou. :D

I am indeed the Kung-Fu DJ in shades… a Shaolin Punk… a doofus among doofi.

And thus the final fix is in place. I am keeping the hyperlink in place so that we all have a direct YouTube link, too!

So, we still don’t know who the mystery young lady is?

Was she actually there in physical form when the photo was taken? This isn’t one of those ‘ghost captured in a photograph’ kind of things, is it???

That was one of our Iron GM models, Madeline Lee.

That shot wasn’t choreographed. I just said “Everyone kick at the camera!” and bang… just like that. :)

Tee Hee! Yes, the kick shot was spontaneous and turned out really nicely.

Thanks all for the opportunity to run a great game.

I’ve been digging into the KQ Design book and am enjoying it muchly!
