Okay, I’ve committed to running:
* Mutant: Year Zero — improvised event, ridiculously fun
* Sagas of the Icelanders — improvised event. Intense, fun, depends a lot on the engagement of the players.
* Burning Wheel — not improvised but I don’t want to run anything I’ve run before. So I’m sure I’m wasting Michael Miller’s time but I asked for a spot anyway. I’ll follow up with details as soon as I get the scenario hammered out.
I’m taking Rachel E.S. Walton’s advice and taking Sunday real easy. I’ll bring stuff to do just in case! Or I can fill tables where needed.

Rachel E.S. Walton, Daniel Levine, Mo Jave, Judd Karlman, Bret Gillan, Sara Williamson, Carly Knight – I think we should conspire to take over one of these games.
SotI or BW work for me.
Ha! Oh lordy.
Probs gonna try to get in all of them.
Don’t forget Carly Knight .
Shit, I also really need to decide if I’m running a Tribe 8 thing or not.
Carly Knight and Bret Gillan get dibs! Sorry, I’m playing favorites. They’re my favorites.
I will start walking to Morristown now to be in your Sagas game.
Google estimates it will take 71 days of walking 8 hours a day. I may be late.
Kit La Touche shhhhh! You’re breaking my undersell and overdeliver methodology.
Do not listen to Kit! The event will be perfectly adequate.
Carly is everyone’s favorite.
Also, I think Mikael Andersson and Andrew Medeiros might enjoy playing Mutant with me and Mark Diaz Truman and Marissa Kelly
MYZ is not to be underestimated. It looks frilly and disposable, and it totally is, but it’s also
ridiculously funperfectly adequate.
Shiiiiiii – I think i need another helping of both MYZ and Sagas!!
Maybe I should just design your tables for you.
I’m kind of hoping for cage fights.
Cage fights? I’ll have to pack a few extra toothbrushes…
I predict it’ll look like this:
Me, alone, waiting for someone to cage fight
Rumor has it there will also be a Montsegur flashmob at some point. Rachel E.S. Walton will your scifi version be ready?
Well, obviously, all those tables are full, but Paul Beakley, let’s scheme on playing something together elsewise!
I mean, I want to play all those games.
But I also wanna cage fight.
James Stuart Oh gosh yes.
I’m getting the sense that there’s a shadow con happening under/concurrent to Dreamation proper.
Excellent. I will do another schedule update later tonight.
Paul Beakley It’s actually not a big thing! I’m running one game off the books because the prep/game is really delicate, but I think the vast vast majority of play happens at booked events.
If I can’t make it (probably not), I’m sure as shit going to Dreamation next year and I’m going to hog-tie Paul Beakley down and we’re going to play Rogue Trader. All. Weekend.
I’ll register it as an event and make sure there’s plenty of seats for the rest of you. I’ll even bring complimentary popcorn.
The best plan is for Paul to run opposite my playtests so Brand Robins will be busy and can’t ruin them.
Anti+ for Marissa Kelly 🙁
I would love to play in any of these. 😀
Looking forward to signing up for all of Paul’s games only to end up with S4: Lost Caverns of Tsojcanth as my 15th choice because all you fuckers were 2ms ahead of me again
Paul, yeah, I’m hoping to run Mars 244: The Liberation of Sisyphus at Dreamation. Not sure if it will be on the books or not yet. I want to play it with people I know first!
Also, people. The SotI game is the one I voted for so…guess we’re gonna have to do this the hard way. ::Gets out period-appropriate beating stick::
We could totally take out a couple of people right Rachel E.S. Walton ::sharpens dagger::
WHAT THE HELL Marissa Kelly.
Now I have to redo all my seating charts.
PROTIP: Say your game has a player count of one less than it actually has so I can just walk up and play.
(I am joking about me in particular, but you can totally do this if there’s a specific someone you really want to play with. You’re coming a long way; do whatcha gotta do)
Jason Morningstar that’s an excellent tip. It’d probably be gauche to have my event listed as “three plus Bret and Jason I guess.”
Yeah don’t do that. If it is gonna be weird just arrange an off books game.
You mean “two plus Carly and maybe Bret and Jason if he brings snacks.”
I bring cherry orange bourbon. Just sayin.
Misha B oh shit that changes everything.
Now it’s Misha plus I don’t even care.
Maybe I should just require bribes.
I can be bought. Rented. I can be rented.
And that bourbon, it is so good.
Pro tip, don’t drink it while playing Blue Beard’s Bride with Marissa Kelly or she will give you wicked bad side-eye at the table.
Well my Sunday is still unscheduled. Odds are good I/we can pull together a shadowcon something.
Reminds me I need to start a batch.
When’s your flight out on Sunday, Paul?
8ish out of Newark
Update is up.
Michael Miller apparently I need to lower by player counts by 5.
I think that means I need -1 players for Burning Wheel. I’ll figure it out!
Don’t listen to Jason Morningstar. He shares his name with a certain fallen angel for a reason.
I feel like if you’re running a BW game with Judd in it, it should be Great Spiders. 😛
