When should I host my game?

I do apologize for the highly focused nature of my blog as of late, but I do want to get this game going before the summer slips away from me.

So, latest update: I’m pretty much decided on Open Quest, a free version of RuneQuest as the rule system for my game. It is fantasy based, so it has a magic system that looks pretty interesting, it is based on BRP, which I’ve been using with Call of Cthulhu for several years now, so I already know most of the rules, and importantly for an online game were I can’t lend rulebooks, it is free.

This means I’m ready to start planning an adventure and making characters.

So, to everyone interested in playing my game: Would Saturdays or Sundays be better? Also, what time? Make sure you specify timezone, I’m free pretty much all weekend. Once I have filtered things down to time-compatible people we can pick which of the setting ideas to run. Note: The settings that I specified last time That doesn’t have to be for the entire summer- I’m having more energy on weekends and after work as of late, so I think I might be up for my Dimension Travelling game after the dungeon crawl, and the two systems are almost identical except for the magic.

I don’t expect people to be at every session, though I would like you to try for half, and I am very open to players joining in part way. So if you can’t make it this weekend don’t sweat it, just let me know when you are interested. If I have several players who can only make it some of the time I might even set up a ‘and you return to the town at the end of every session’ type deal, so players can drop in and out at will.

I guess that about wraps it up, so until next time, Stay Geeky.


Update: I’ve decided that 1 pm pacific time would be a good time to start making characters at irc.otherworlders.net #RuneQuest. Let me know if you need help getting on IRC or figuring out what time that is in your area.

  1. Weekends can be goofy for me, because of my performance schedule. Also, I teach drum lessons on the weekends. I tend to have a fair bit of free time on the weekends, but my commitments are scattered. The time selected will pretty much tell me if I can commit regularly or not. :)

    • Ada has said that either day should be fine for her: I’ve heard from 3 people so far, and am trying to decide if that is the right number to start with. If you have any recommendations for good places to recruit- I fear putting up something on RPG.net as I’ve heard some horror stories about recruiting there. Well, I guess we can make characters at least. I’m going to default to Saturday, as if no one can make it then we can reschedule.

  2. Hopefully you guys will have a good time! When I get through with Weird Adventures maybe I’ll actually have some time for so online gaming! ;)

  3. Saturday at 1 Pacific is 4 my time, I believe. I almost did it backwards and reckoned on 10 Eastern! This Saturday, I’d be doing a major multitasking as I’ll be doing prep for my father’s birthday party, but I’m willing to try that for character creation.
