A scattering of opportunities

We’ll go by looming deadline:

I am the gaming coordinator for Leprecon 47 – a virtual convention happening March 20-21. My end of it is at the end, starting 5pm on March 21.

To whit:

I am still seeking game-masters to run one-shots over Zoom with players who would not reliably have copies of said game in hand. This creates some challenges I’ll cover later. Right now, if you want to be one of these brave masters, contact me at my convention address: tpadegimas@leprecon.org

If you just want to play:

Player Recruitment Blurb:

Our virtual game room opens at 5pm on Sunday, March 21st. All are welcome to join one of several RPG’s conducted over our Zoom channel.

To join you must:

  • Become a member of the convention (free!) [link]
  • Choose a game. [link]
  • Email the GM from the email address you want to use to send and receive PDF documents. 
    • Pre-generated characters and other game documents come as PDF’s. [acrobat link]
  • Choose your character (first chosen – first got).
  • Join the Zoom meeting at 5pm on Sunday. 

All of our games are intended for general audiences and geared towards novice players. 

This is not approved verbage (the place-holders for links give that away). But knowing how this works, I am three days away from the full stop of asking permission and just doing what needs to be done.

As the blurb indicates, the ony way to manage this across all common platforms is to all sign up on RollD20 exchange emails and traffic in PDF files.

It’s 2021. Figure out PDF files.

This one is mine!

I am already down to six Executive Producer comp copies of Go Action Fun Time (See last post). But I will still get them to you on those same terms. Hand-delivered in the Phoenix Metro area – as long as you can wait until I’m in the neighborhood. (I drive 100 miles a day for my day job. This will happen.)

Pushing it at real cons has slowly paid off it seems.

Congruently, in investigating strategies for running RPG’s over Zoom (the format imposed upon me), I came across RollD20 – which may make me the last player to find it. It is now a firm part of the marketing-strategy-in-my-head that GAFT gets incorporated into this format and any other similar formats we find reasonable. This effort will likely be the subject of future updates.

Unobtanium Bazaar is still doing all those things we announced last post. (no link -scroll down).

Ford Canyon Trail

I finally updated Are We Lost Yet with a hike I took over the weekend, and remain sore from.

I learned that I have, comfortably, an eight mile hiking range through mountainous terrain. The route I took covered ten miles. So, even though I limped to the car, I have no regrets.

It took 10-12 man-hours to produce that blog article, from trailhead to the publish button, and not counting drive time.

I was hoping to announce an equal time-sinking article on integrating the Star Trek Universe with Traveller – but social obligations ate those hours, and I am past bedtime as I write this.

Even so, WORD COUNT is high:

Another chapter for the next 64 novel. 1800 words.

Writer’s Group: 500 words.

Hiking research – half-day = 1000 words.

Hike research and draft document = 750 words

Ford Canyon Blog Post = 1000 words plus photos and format = 500 words

GAFT GM Recruitment: = 500 words.

This blog = 1000 words.

TOTAL= 6500

{My goal is 5000}.

I don’t count Leprecon things.

Whiskey and bed.

Now we know.
