NC GAME DAY II (Aug 23): Man, was that fun or what?!


Liquid Awesome
It is that time.

I have returned from vacation full of vim and vigor (and utterly swamped at work) ready to start anew a discussion of the particulars of NC Game Day II. In case you missed the earlier thread, it is going to be held the same place as NC Game Day I, the Talley Student Center at NC State Campus.

What I propose is this:

Step 1 - Determine that yes, you are in fact interested in attending NC Game Day II.

Step 2 - Determine that you can get to NC Game Day II (if you live in a far away land like Tibet or Boston, you may have a tough time with the drive).

Step 3 - Clear your calendar for August 23. This should include telling people like friends, relatives, bosses and spouses that you will be strangely absent that day. Precisely how strangely is up to you.

Step 4 - Post your interest in attending in this thread. You should include in your post whether you want to run a game or just play. If you plan on running a game, include some sort of brief description of the game and how many players you would like to have in the game. If you just want to play, note which, if any, of the posted games you want to participate in. If none of the presently posted games strike your fancy, mention what sorts of games you would like to play in.

Step 5 - Check back in the thread from time to time (I'd suggest subscribing to it if you don't normally) and check to see if there are any additional games you wish to sign up for.

Step 6 - Relax until August 23.

I will periodically update this first post with any important new information. I'll post that info right up at the top of the post and probably put it in bold (itallics too if I'm feeling sassy).

The post after this one will eventually include all scheduling information and I will promise to try and accomodate people as much as possible when slotting games and players. For right now I'll leave it empty until we get at least a skeletal outline of what games are going to be run and how many players will be in attendance.

I'll kick things off by saying that I'd tentatively like to run one game and play one game like I did last time. The game I'll be running will be:


If you've ever wanted to see how the other half lives (and sometimes dies), Orcz! is the adventure for you! Get a chance to play one of a motley crew of orcish misfits including:

Mugnutz the Blue - Wizard of Chaos!
Thag - Mugnutz's apprentice who is too dumb to cast spells!
Honka Thonka - Cleric of Grumsh and wielder of sharp objects!
Gronka Thonka - Gronka's twin brother and wearer of The Stinking Hide of Grumsh!
Gouge - The Half-Goblin Rogue who would spit in your one good eye just as soon as look at ya.

I look forward to hearing from everyone soon.

Hmm... if my current Saturday game players will forgive my absence, I might like to try my hand running a 3rd ed Planescape game for some random folks aside from my current two groups. I'll give some more info as the date gets closer and I come up with an idea from my big bag o'unused plots.

Thanks for the support, Mark. I can say without hesitation that your help and that of CMG tremendously enhanced the last NCGD.

Shemeska, don't beg off from your Saturday players. Bring em' along! The more, the merrier.



I mean.. err... I'd like to play Mugnutz the Blue in your game. :)

I would also offer to run one of three choices for people:

1) A Mutants and Masterminds Superhero Game - "Doom of the Fusigoid!" (an original creation)

2) A d20 Modern Psuedo-Horror Game - "Try the Pork!" (this would use the characters from the previous d20 Modern game I ran.)

3) Dungeons and Dragons Game (to be announced, because I'm hoping if I run it that Mark Clover will provide me with a kick-butt scenario.) :)

Your selection has been noted and your spot reserved.

My vote for your game would be option 2 or 3. I'll also note that you have provided us with our first bit of structure for the game day in that since you will be playing in my game, you'll be GMing in the other time slot (be it morning or afternoon).

Also Henry, I recall you saying that your attendance was somewhat dependant on you getting accomodations in the area. If you have trouble with that, let me know and I can probably find a bed for you at my house.

EDIT: One other little thing dawned on me. When people talk about running D&D games, they should probably specify if they will be using 3E or 3.5E. This is especially if they are going to be generating their own characters. I'll go ahead and say that my Orcz game will be 3E so I can accomodate anybody who hasn't learned the 3.5 rules yet (like possibly me).

After a set back early this year due to family difficulties (ill mother), I was unable to keep my promise to provide Crothian with a scenario for his last Ohio Gameday. That will not be a problem with the next NC gameday given the timeframe, so you can count on several from which to choose. :)


First Post
Step 1 - I am interested in NCGD2.

Step 2 - I can get there.

Step 3 - Clear calendar.

Step 4 - I want to play. D&D (any/either) or d20 Modern.

Step 5 - Will check back.

Step 6 - Relaxing.



Liquid Awesome
It's so nice to work with people who can follow directions. :D

Great to have you on board, Quasqueton. Can we count once again on your "madd kamera skillz" for recording the event for posterity?


Liquid Awesome
Hmm. It seems that this thread is not turning out to be as popular as I thought. Perhaps I need to directly e-mail the attendees from NC Game Day I.


First Post
Let the games ... begin planning

I'm most definitely up for it, and whatever game Henry is planning is the one I want to play. BTW, Henry, you're more than welcome to crash here. As for running a game :) I fail miserably at that so I wouldn't touch it yet with a 49 and a half foot pole. Respect to those few who are indeed blessed with storytelling ability.

Thanks again Henry ;) Great movie.

Thanks for pointing me here, Rel!

I may, in fact, be interested in attending as a player. Your Orcz game and Henry's D&D apeal to me the most. The Planescape setting has always intrigued me, but I've never gamed in it before.

My interest is of course partly dependent that you don't mind having an old guy there with a questionable grasp of the rules. :D

I think it's been more than twelve years since I sat down at a game as a player. How novel!

I'm almost afraid to ask, but what exactly is "The Stinking Hide of Grumsh"?

Can you tell what character I'm leaning toward? Although Thag is worth a look as well...

It would be great to see you there, Jon!

As for my game, I'm not solid on whether what I run will be D&D or Modern, but there will be two slots and I will be running one and playing one. Rest assured that assuming we get a few more GM's that there will be plenty of D&D to go 'round.

Let's see some more North Carolinians! I'm coming from Florence, South Carolina - The least we can do is get some more Fayettevillians and Ashevillians at this soiree! :)


And I'm most definately in for running a 3e Planescape game, title and number of players as yet undecided. I have a number of one shot ideas I'm throwing around right now, and most any of them would be good. Just have yet to decide which one I'll sit down and fully develop, and how to keep it workable for a single gaming session. I rarely do things to last a single session. *chuckle* A shortcoming when you're making a one shot.

As soon as I know in more detail the plot and such I'll let the folks in charge know.

And while I'm running, I'll be pimping Planescape 3e over at since I'm on the team. *pimp pimp pimp*
