    You have to admit Roberts is a funny guy. Always struck me funny when Roberts named it CitizenCon.  LOL

    In other words, more big money for SC. I give them credit though, they have built up a Star Trek/Star Wars type mania and haven't even had to release the game to do it.

    "Cosplay is appreciated; however, local laws and venue restrictions prohibit prop weapons (the Long Center is effectively an Armistice Zone) so please leave those at home."

    Ok so I am thinking the US now has declared armistice zones, what the hell is going on. But after I google this I think I can safely say this is a one of? You don't have armistice zones popping up all over the country?

    I've never heard of this. I know in Boston, for PAX, people can bring fake weapons into the convention center.

    CIG has been releasing early development builds to it's backers since 2013.

     So they have actualy been releasing the game! Bit by bit with every one of their updates and their backers are fine with it as the continuous financial support shows.

    As much as it hurts the haters, naysayers and "are we there yet" crew lol

    I've never heard if that either.  Is there a link?  I've looked at other conventions requirements regarding props.  It gets complicated with inspections and all, perhaps they decided to skip all of that by not allowing any at all.

    It's a gathering of thousands of people + prop weapons + US messed up mass shootings reality = Risky stuff. 

    Things like Comic-Con are facing bans on weapon props on several parts of the US, in London Comic-Con they were also banned.

    No link, just what I read in OP's post, maybe the idea of the term "armistice zone" was conjured up by a no prop gun ban?

    It's just a random term that is used on the game itself to describe a "no-weapons" zone, fancier way to cope with cosplayers unable to bring prop weapons inside the venue.
