Numbers

On line rego for Conquest is closed, so I have final pre-con numbers for my games.

Session B - Powerplay: 21*/48
Session C - Friday Night Poker Club: 23/24
Session G - Ball of Dreams: 23/24
Session K - Ball of Dreams: 6/24
Session M - Friday Night Poker Club: 8/24

*I have had another six people reserve characters for Powerplay who haven't pre-registered, so that makes it 27 out of 48 which makes me feel better. I want at least 30 players for it to run well (in my opinion) and I don't think there should be a problem with me getting that.

The only one I am worried about is Session K Ball of Dreams. I've pencilled it in as a minimum of 12 players (more is better, as per usual) so I would really like to see more people in that session. However, since it's the second session of the game, hopefully it should pick up more people after the first session runs. That's what usually happens.

Poker and Ball of Dreams are just about complete (and I've even done prop shopping!) with all that I need to do now is count up the poker chips and work out how many more I need to buy, buy them and the cards and finish putting the props together. Oh, and buy a new copy of Labyrinth. I left mine at home.

Powerplay will be finished by tonight. It should have been finished last night, but I figured that since I do have extra time to do this, I may as well use the extra time I have and I've enhanced a few things that I wasn't intending to originally.

All in all, I'm really looking forward to this.

I printed up a set of Trumps for Powerplay last night, so you will get a chance to see the Visual Guide trumps. The paper I used is a bit light, and I didn't think to correct the darkness before printing so they have printed too dark, but they will certainly serve. Even at poor quality, I prefer them to the ADRPG trumps.

You should have some fairly spectacular costumes for session G Ball of Dreams, too. I know there are a few of use putting some effort in.

Your props didn't happen to include a bowler hat, by any chance?

No, but I'll see if we can visit The Warehouse again. If we do I'll see if they've got any green bowlers.

As for the costumes for Ball of Dreams, I know. I am rather scared by that, to be totally honest, but I can't wait to see them.

Oh, I'm bringing the chocolate poker set Koula gave me for Christmas with me. I figure I'll teach her to play poker tomorrow night, halfway to Melbourne, and the stakes will be significant because we will get to eat our winnings. :)

I don't suppose you have a purple dress shirt, do you?

No, sorry, I left my purple one behind I'm afraid.

I have a dusky blue one that might work, depending on the purple you were looking for.

Hmmm, not sure. I was after it for Caine. (Whose colours are purple and emerald green I seem to recall - DAMN shame I forgot THE SUIT!!)

Yes, such a shame.

I don't think mine would work for that unfortunately. :-(

Now should I wear a tie, a bow tie or get hold of a cravat and try to learn how to tie them before Saturday?

I have a Marvin the Martian bow tie...

I have a variety of bow ties and given that I'm playing Sorrow, I'm not sure a MtM one would be entirely appropriate :)

Oh well...

When's K? It looks like I may be turning up to (some of) Conquest after all. :)

Be nice to see you.

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
