Much Ado About Friday! (ITT we Japan now)
« on: December 23, 2011, 03:27:01 pm »
Well, hello everyone! I hope you're having a  fantastic Festivus. I know I am, seeing as my liquor supplies are quickly dwindling down to nothing as I come to terms with my Arts degree. Anyways, I'm here to talk to you about what we should do about Friday.

Now that Hot War is over (for the time being), there are now three people vying the now vacant but ever popular Friday evening slot.

The contenders are:

Alex, who will be running 3:16 - Carnage Among The Stars , a rules light mix between Starship Troopers and Warhammer 40k. Just google it.

John H with Scion , where you (and a few friends) will roleplay as the manchildren of the Gods in a modern-day setting. I think John might be going with a Norse theme with this campaign, but you'll have to ask him to find out more.

Finally, we have the worst GM in Wargamers (yours truly). I'll be trying my hand at running Deadlands: Reloaded, which seems to be a very nice mix of action, comedy and horror all with a Western aesthetic.

In conclusion, feel free to post post post about which campaign setting you'd like to join for the next upcoming term. We're using democracy here folks, so whoever draws the most interest will probably get the spot. Yup. Post post post.

i'm voting for what ever gives me the best chance at watching comedy central. 
Things die.  People burn.  This is the way of all things.   This is my way *cackle*

I'm lazy and am quite willing to vote against myself since I would rather play than run.  :)  That said, if the votes go for 3:16, I am willing to run it.

I am slightly biased towards the system of Deadlands:Reloaded over Scion, but am happy with either setting.  And hey, a Norse theme could be cool.  I like it when the party is united by a theme.

News: I will not be interfering with the Ffriday evening games, as I am suddenly unavailable Friday evenings.  So I revoke my vote, and also will be able to run 3:16 on Friday afternoons (say noon to 5 pm?) if anyone is interested.

Btw, wrt Friday evenings (which I can't play in so don't take me too seriously here) if people can't decide between Savage Worlds and Norse myth, there is always Hellfrost.  :)

no no he's got every reason to be jamie'd.  I endorse this move for comedy central.

While I'm good for both options, I think that Deadlands: Reloaded would fit our group the best.

I would say let John run Scion.  Jamie's grasp of the wild west is still. *magic 8 ball says hazy*.   However if jamie does deadlands comedy central will ensue..

My personal enjoyment. or watching you guys play scion.,

Cowboys: The RPG? Sounds cool, gets my vote. But is Hot War really over?

My vote would be for Deadlands, although I'm fine playing either one.

I've got classes Friday evenings now, so Jan 6th will be my only day in whatever campaign is starting.

Another option is the 2 GMs alternating weeks, if they have the same group of players.

Out of curiosity if I tried to run the Dresden Files either on Friday, or on another day would anyone be interested in it. It's a modern day real world setting with magic overlayed and uses the fate system

I would be very much interested in a Dresden Files game, but friday's wouldn't work for me, unfortunately.
