I vaguely recall the ad for Austin Powers in theatres. This was back in 1999, when the hype for Episode I was really intense.
"If you see one movie this summer, . . . see STAR WARS!
"But if you see two movies this summer, . . . see Austin Powers!"
Now, this year, they're releasing Austin Powers 3: Goldmember in competition with Episode II.
"If you see one movie this summer, . . . see Austin Powers!
"But if you see two movies this summer, . . . see Austin Powers again!"
What does that have to do with The Book of Eldritch Might II? Well, there's probably a lot of eagerness for it, as there was a lot of eagerness for Episode I. And even though I am positive that BoEM2 will be much better than Episode I, we should still realize that the competition did not cause people to avoid seeing Austin Powers.
And yes, I have an ongoing game, and I'm at Emory University (in North East Atlanta) right now. I currently have about 7 players in my game, but it is rare that they can all make it. Problem is, I'll be transfering elsewhere after the end of this semester, so there won't be much time to get a long game going. But if you want to try to game some time, we try to game every other weekend, including next week.
