Chainsaw, are you taking slot pre-regs for your off-grid games? If so, mark me down for Thursday and Friday! :-)

Yeah count me in Wed-Fri as well if you're doing that. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/grin.png
 

I'm flattered, man. So let it be written, so let it be done!

Exciting! I'm sure you will do a great job. Make sure to let us know how it goes. 

And don't go easy on them!

I'm not sure if I'll be running it Friday or Saturday but I'll be running Descent into Krimmea at Gary Con. As I figure out my schedule with the 3 other games I want to run, I'll post here what day/time slot for DiK.

Cool! This one has a neat description. Krimmea's always been a place I wanted to explore.

This sounds fun!

Thanks!

What is a site-based adventure specifically?

I put that in mostly for newer-school players who may be expecting more of an linear adventure "path," where they're guided along from set piece to set piece, as opposed to a "site" where they wander around a bit more freely. May not be helping make that clear though, so I may ditch it.

While I have yet to buy my badge for the weekend, I do plan to attend MACE again this year along with the rest of the 'Atlanta Invasion'. And I look forward to seeing what you're available to do, Chainsaw.

Me too! Let's coordinate. I'm happy to run a couple of games for you and your crew. Check your email!

I imagine the underside of Hyperborea as a vast expanse of jagged, mountainous stalactites hanging down miles long, some inhabited by the deepest-dwelling denizens of the Underborea - research facilities of wicked sorcerer-scientists, nightmarish lairs of the worst demons, ancient spaceports for extraplanar invaders, cursed temple-tombs of long-dead gods, abandoned prisons brimming with damned souls, etc. Maybe others are active volcanoes, spewing hot lava into the Black Gulf (the beginnings of new asteroids, moons or even planets) or huge hives releasing horrific abominations into the Black Gulf.

The official event list has been released, so I updated our AS&SH list as well. Ironman Eric Petersen's running six events - damn! He's an animal!

Submitted last night. I even put a blurb in the special request section about "Please place in the Hyperborea section/room that might be given to NorthWind (AKA Jeff Talanian)."

You rock! 

Eric Peterson had planned to run several games as well, but I'm not sure what he ultimately submitted.

Ah, I see, I see. Makes sense. For now I'll add them to our top-of-thread summary as you have presented them here and if something changes, I'll change the summary as well. 

Did you submit any of them? Or not yet? If you submit your Fri/Sat/Sun games, it might help us secure a room. I think whether we get a room is somewhat contingent on whether there are enough games to warrant it.

Ok. Here's my contributions:

Schedule (all tentative as of this writing):
Thursday: Descent into Krimmea 6-10pm
Friday: Escape from Kor 10-2pm
Saturday: Descent into Krimmea 12-4pm
Sunday: Escape from Kor 8-12am.

Nice, Michael! Those are really cool locations and fun ways to use them. 

Are the events only tentative because you're waiting on formal approval? Or because you're not sure if you intend to submit them as presented here? Asking because if it's the former, I'll go ahead and add them to the main list we have. I would be surprised if they're not approved.

And then as a three-sport athlete (gaming, canoeing, softball), with a pretty rigorous alcohol-training regimen for all three, the time just disappears.

It's hard being Handy Haversack!

Hi, Hyperboreans,

I am still alive, in case anyone was wondering! The summer has been brutally busy, in both the broad scope and the narrow. Seems like I never have a chance to check in. Still gaming, though, and still trying to keep current. Blargh.

Glad to hear it, Handy! I have to admit, I was wondering if all was well.

Submitted Shooting Star Watcher for 8am-12pm on Friday and Saturday. Both have been approved.

Nice! Is that an adventure you wrote?

If you want to give me the full description, I'll add it to the master Gamehole list (above).

The Mid Atlantic Convention Expo (MACE) is scheduled for November 10-12, 2017 at the Hilton Charlotte University Place hotel in Charlotte, NC. The convention bills itself as, "one of the largest gatherings of gamers in the Carolinas," and features, "Board games, war games, role playing games, live action, video games, and miniature games."

I have never been to this one before (even though it's in my backyard), but I'll be there this year for the first time (and running AS&SH games). If you're thinking of attending, please chime in, so we can coordinate where possible.
