Actually, sign me up for that FATE CORE game...

Afternoon slot, Game 7 (Tomb of Horrors/House of Cards Remix)

Sign me up for Afternoon Game 4 Fate Core Vs. Tomb of Horrors.

I think for the afternoon I'll try Tomb with Vyv.

Buzz, my afternoon game should be 5 seats, not 6.

Vyvyan Basterd and everyone else playing in afternoon events 5 and 7... A proposal.

What do you guys think of combining these two events into a Tomb of Horrors double feature in the afternoon?

I mean, really... it's Tomb of Horrors. How long do we expect either event will last on it's own, before TPK?

*snicker*

It may be a good thing Reidzilla's bringing SotM...y'all may have some free bodies with time to kill, heh-heh. (SotM makes an AWESOME pick-up game & only takes 1-2 hours with 3+ players- -maybe a touch more for first timers. Kill Der Spot off first; he can show people how to play! *g*)
 


Buzz, if you could tweak my event description slightly, I'd be much obliged.

Since I've got a full house, and am possibly accommodating an extra guest, also, I'm going to say that if you want to bring a Next character of your own, please make it level 7, rather than 10. All of my pregens will be level 7. If you're interested in bringing your own, please get a hold of me in the thread, or via PM or something, and let me know, and we'll work out the building guidelines.

Depending on how the week goes, they may get updated to the latest playtest documents which are coming out on Wednesday, I believe.

So, it doesn't look like my DRYH game is gonna go off either. I think I'll just grab that last spot in Willow's ApoWest game, and give the system one fair shot before I give up on it.

We've been playtesting TOMB at home and have had to add rules to move the game along quicker so we can finish within the time slot.

You mean you're not going to just have a stack of PCs at the ready?

And this is why. :)

There are LITERALLY stacks of PCs waiting to fill in for the numerous dead that are assured to pile up.

Yeah, because of the schtick, I'm dealing with just the six characters from the Cartoon show... and they, surprisingly, never had a healer in the group. I don't expect they'll last long. :devil:

The original box claims 1 1/2 to 2 hours, the expansion ups that number. It really depends who you play with. The more tactically-minded in my group suffer horribly from analysis paralysis when playing this and it can drag the game on. If you stay with the spirit of delving in head-first without abandon and revel in defeat and victory alike, the game still can run a good 4 hours.

We've added some house-rules, assuming that no one other than Laurie and I will have played before, that should help cut down some of the more time-consuming choices that are harder to make when you are still unfamiliar with the game.

Tweaked! Please take a look and make sure I've done what you require.

Please add me to the Dawn Patrol game. Thanks!
Added!

Welcome to ENWorld and welcome to Gameday, Severian!

So, it doesn't look like my DRYH game is gonna go off either. I think I'll just grab that last spot in Willow's ApoWest game, and give the system one fair shot before I give up on it.
Done! ApocaWest is now full!

If someone could get in touch with Catt and make sure she chooses an alternate event for the morning, that would be great.

Hey Severian, glad you will be joining us for some Dawn Patrol!

Buzz, could you also add Ken S to the list as well?

Thanks!
Added!

Also, expect to see table assignments in the near future.

Who needs sleep, right?

Sign me up for Sentinels of the Multiverse! I love the game, and can't pass up the opportunity to play, despite getting off work at 2AM Saturday morning. :)
