Game time set!

Ok, everyone who answered the poll (and diantha) can game on the 27th, so that's the date I'm setting. Unless anyone has a clever idea why not, I'm going to say "afternoon", since the consensus on length was 4-5 hours, and that seems like a nice afternoon-y length. So, unless there are any objections, I'm going to say 1400 on Monday the 27th, with a planned end time of 1600 or 1700, or when everyone gets hungry and scatters for dinner.

Everyone's place is available then, so I don't know if anyone has any strong opinions of where to meet. I'm tentatively going to say qousqous's for old time's sake, because it's the most convenient for me, because he has a table with chairs, and because he has KITTENS. If anyone has any reasons to hold it elsewhere, let me know and we can change that.

I will announce character building guidelines on Christmas day. If anyone needs a run through my GURPS library or other such things, let me know and I'll see what I can work out. If anyone knows someone else who might like our style of game, we could take on a few more players, but we have a nice-sized group as-is. I *might* try to contact Chris D., but I'm not sure I know his number anymore. Anyone else who does is welcome to take that on instead. Also, I assume that Elizabeth is out of town for break, and Kelly is in Eugene. Anyone who can challenge that assumption and provide contact information is welcome to do so, because then it would be all old time reunion-y and stuff.

See y'all on the 27th!

One-shot?

So, I'm thinking of running a one-shot over break. GURPS 3rd edition (no way am I spending money on all new books, I already have a huge stack, thanks), characters made before showing up (I'll work with people on it over phone/IM/email/lj), haven't decided on a setting or plot quite yet. After I see who's interested and how many people, I'll have a much better idea. There's already been one suggestion to just run the group adventure out of the back of the old 3rd ed (not revised) book, if no one remembers it well enough that that would be a problem (and assuming I can find it in my gaming stuff). Otherwise, I have a few different ideas, but will probably do another modern running-around-Europe-or-something type game unless I get suggestions or inspiration strikes.

This game will, in terms of where the players will be expected to be showing up to, be in Portland somewhere, so bear that in mind when filling in the poll.

New game!

I'm going to run a new GURPS game this summer. Probably TL 4ish. I'm thinking fantasy world with only clerical magic. Let me know if you're interested, along with what type of character would be most interesting to you, if you have a specific idea in mind.

Game?

Are we having game this weekend? I seem to recall delegating booking a room to either diantha or ebalmer but never heard what came of it. Did that happen? If so, when (and where) are we meeting? If not, what's plan B? Or is everyone so swamped with school that they don't want to think about game yet?

Game......!!!!

Game? On Tuesday? At noon? Grilled cheese and ramen or pizza? Or other assorted random things? I have less than a week left. We need to finish this. School starts the monday following next, and since it seems Im going by train, I have to leave two days befor I arrive, it also helps to arrive on Sunday, rather than Monday. So anyways, Chris? Good for you? Let me know when you can.N

GAME!!!

Well, Sarah and I are back, along with Mary in tow. I realized very recently, that I do not have very much more time left here. Infact, I have anywhere from a week to two. Which means, we need to start stepping up things if we dare want to finish my little adventure. When does anyone want to game? And how far should we push it up to? I sorta talked to Mary, sorta as in just slightly, and she did show interest in being a fighter. The earliest I can be at school is the 18th. Which is out of the question for me, the latest, when school starts, is the 26th. Im thinking of going by train, which means I have to leave two days before I want to be there. But anyways... GAME GAME GAME!!!.

ps.. I hope everyone had a good time while we were gone. *waves*

Introducting Carvel

carvel is in his early forties. He is the current leader figure of a small religious commune (I'm thinking from what is now Alberta or Saskatchewan, but I should probably do a bit more research) which raises sheep and trains dogs. His wife, Kelda, is the veterinarian for the commune's animals and they also have five children, Sosanna, Betka, Nikolais, Geofri, and Teresina . Sosanna is 21 and married, Betka is 19 and married, Nikolais is 18 and due to be wedded at the spring ceremony this year, Geofri is 16 and due to become an adult at the fall ceremony this year, and Teresina is 14. All of them are accompanying him, along with most of the commune. A few chose to stay back on Earth, so that new converts would have a place to go as they discovered the faith. His youngest brother, Tynko, is now leading those who have chosen to stay.

As the religious and unofficial political leader of his commune, Carvel has spent much of his life in the study of his faith. His position is a hereditary one, held by his father until his father's death and which his eldest son is already in training for. His father died a few years back when he was hit by a car while trying to rescue a sheep which had strayed, and Carvel is considered to be very young for his position. Previously opposed to leaving Earth, his father's death convinced him that his people needed to be on a new world with more space for their rustic lifestyle. Carvel is very devout in his faith, and has spent many hours studying the holy writings and the journals of former leaders.

Carvel loves animals and invites some of the family dogs to sleep inside at night, which is uncommon for working dogs such as they have. He is also often found talking to the dogs and sheep. As with other members of the commune, he wears mainly clothes made out of wool and woven by members of the commune, although he does not often have time to weave them himself. Although he has special robes for ceremonial occasions, he is normally seen in a simple sweater and pair of slacks. He wears his long blond hair in a braid down his back, and has a full beard which he trims when he remembers to, often using equipment meant to be used on the sheep.

So....Questions? Corrections? Comments?
