Pre Convention Planning...

I must be ill, I'm doing planning for Pheno next year...

The game I wanted to run at Pheno this year didn't end up running because I was too late by the time I submitted it. So I am intending to run it next year. The game is titled I'm Sorry, All I Can Provide Is Death, and I talked about it in this post almost a year ago.

The issue is that I'm going to need at least two assistant GM's for it, maybe more, at least one of those assistant GM's are going to have to be fairly experienced because they will have to run parts of the game effectively on their own, and it's going to work best if my assistant GM's are involved while I write it.

Plus they are going to have to be able to travel to Canberra for Pheno (9, 10 and 11 of June next year, I believe) so they can actually help me run it.

All in all, a fairly big ask at this stage.

I have already had psuedonym777 volunteer to be an assistant when we chatted some time earlier this year (while I was down for Conquest I do believe) but that was assuming that it was being run at Pheno this year.

So, is there anyone who wants to be involved in this endeavour? Word of warning: This game is currently looking at being vastly different to any of my previous games, and will be a very GM intensive game (hence the need to have organised assistant GM's).

The thing is that a lot of the people who I picture would volunteer to help me run it are the people who I would want to play in it. Having Fergie help me run it is probably ok, 'cause I think I would most likely break him if he played in it. :)

I'm happy to help, but I'd be just as happy to play it instead. Besides, if Fergie's running it, I can break him as a player ;)

The thing is, you're another one of the people that I'm afraid I'd break if you played in it. I'm not sure if that would be a good thing or a bad thing though.

I would love you have you on board this endeavour, if you wish.

I bounce pretty well, but am happy to GM if you prefer that.

I think I will grab you as a GM then. Thanks very muchly.

This means that you get to break Fergie as another GM. Enjoy! :)

He'll regret making that bet now! ;)

I'm looking forward to seeing you when you're in town. What's the latest estimate on the move South?

Current plan is end of April.

The current lease at this place ends April 30, 2007, so we are currently planning on moving sometime about then.

This gives us time to recover from Silly Season and Roleplaying Season :) before we move, and hopefully me some time to save some money.

You know I'm always up for helping, but I probably can't commit to being available for this one, due to extraneous matters. Sorry mate.

If you want to keep me in the loop on the off-chance that's fine, but don't rely on me for it.

Understood.

I'll probably bounce ideas off you, at any rate. As per usual. :)

Given that I already know the basics - he'll do well at the GMing.

Well, I wasn't planning to run anything at Pheno next year, I am intending to go, and I'd be conveniently available during the writing process. The title is intriging enough that I'll play it if I'm not helping to run it, but I'd be happy to be a GM instead. I guess it depends how much you'd want to have me as a player.

Hmm...

It's a game I see you having a lot of fun playing (or at least, you'll enjoy the game after it's over, as you were too caught up in it all while playing to realise that you were enjoying it), but also having a lot of fun running.

Your choice. I'd love to have you involved.

I suspect the phrase you are struggling to find is "co-writer" :)

Almost, but not quite.

The game is going to be written by me, but it's going to be easier if I discuss things with the people that are going to be helping me run it as I write them. That way I we can work out what is feasible and what isn't before we end up with these things happening in game while I'm out of the room doing "other stuff".

It all makes sense to me, at any rate. :)

Desert Rose

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of fire
Those dreams are tied to a horse that will never tire
And in the flames
Her shadows play in the shape of a man's desire

This desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

And as she turns
This way she moves in the logic of all my dreams
This fire burns
I realize that nothing's as it seems

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of rain
I lift my gaze to empty skies above
I close my eyes
This rare perfume is the sweet intoxication of her love

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

Sweet desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

Sweet desert rose
This memory of Eden haunts us all
This desert flower
This rare perfume, is the sweet intoxication of the fall
