Manifest is coming up in two weeks, and Conquest is returning the favour by running some role-playing games during the festival. I've volunteered one of mine, This Party Proudly Brought To You By Unstable Robert's Crazy World of Discount Spells. I figure that Discworld is a well known universe, so that the players won't have to deal to wrapping their heads around something completely new, plus it's a light, fun game with nothing too over the top.
However, the game will work better if I have a Orangutan. The game is a frat party at the Unseen University, and I usually have someone playing the Librarian behind the bar serving drinks (and dealing with the drink counters so I know how drunk the characters are). Previous times I've run it, I've had one or two people doing the role (being a Orangutan, his arms are very bloody long).
So, anyone want to be my assistant on Saturday the 22nd of August at Manifest at the Melbourne Showgrounds? The game starts 12:45 and goes for two and a half hours, and my assistant will be serving drinks (water/cordial/etc) during that time, and occasionally bashing up characters if they make the mistake of calling him a monkey. :)
I get in free to Manifest because I'm a writer, but I don't think that covers any assistant GM's, so anyone wanting to help me will probably have to want to go anyway. I may be able to get an assistant in, not sure.
Anyone want to help?
