MurghBpurn,

White Haired Man would be willing to supply demo scenario for you to run. We have some new Simple Scenario products that would probably work out terrific for a demo run. Let me know if you are interested.

Four people have expressed an interest so far, 2 of which have the following preferences:

I'm in Eastern time, and daytime Eastern/afternoon-evening GMT is best for me during the week.

I'm in GMT-7, but I'm a stay-at-home dad going to school so I can play just about any time.

@pjrake, PM sent

@Andugus, I've just puchased The Hideout and I'm reading through it :)

How about any of the following dates:
I can do Saturday evening, Sunday, Evening, next Tuesday, or Wednesday.

I can do any but Saturday.

So looking at the following:

I would be interested in one of the Weekend times. (EST or GMT-5).
Other than Sun Jan 10th, & Sat. Jan 23rd I should be able to make it.

I could probably make Saturday evening. Definitely cannot make games after this weekend.
Friday I can't do

I can do Saturday evening, Sunday, Evening, next Tuesday, or Wednesday.

I am free tomorrow after 6:30 PM GMT and have several good days next week.

I can do any but Saturday.

I am GMT-6 and can typically do later evenings (8pm - 12am) or possibly on weekends starting a little sooner.
If I was to schedule one for this Saturday at this time (http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/fixedtime.html?day=9&month=1&year=2010&hour=20&min=0&sec=0&p1=0), who would be interested?

For those that can't make (and even again for those that can) it I can do another next week.

OK, that's not Saturday evening for me - I can do that.

This link (http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/fixedtime.html?day=9&month=1&year=2010&hour=20&min=0&sec=0&p1=0) gives the time.

Download the installer (not the demo) from here (http://www.fantasygrounds.com/downloads/).

Thanks for the info.I will download the installer right now. I have been wanting to give this a try before buying the full product for a while now.

The time works out great for me also. Eastern time equivalent is Sat 9th at 3:00pm.

Will the installer have Savage Worlds rules built in?
Can you give us a brief info about the game?
Since it is a intro game will you be handing out pre-gen characters or will we create our own?

Thanks, I look foreword to playing this weekend.

I have the Savage Worlds ruleset installed and you'll download an encrypted version from me.
The session we'll be playing is The Hideout (https://www.fantasygrounds.com/store/product.xcp?id=WHM-KS12-SW).
If you want to create PCs feel free and pm them to me, otherwise I'll have pre-gens available.

Look forward to introducing you to an excellent product for online RPGing :)

To clarify, make sure you check the checkbox to install the unregistered version.

Alias is soft monk ugly fang, Server is up if anyone wants to connect and downolad the ruleset (can take up to 20mins first time).

SavageGreek
January 9th, 2010, 19:56
Downloading rules now. can't wait to try this out.

JoeGun
January 11th, 2010, 02:11
Just tried to connect and download the ruleset, is the server still up? Also any idea when you plan on running this again?

VenomousFiligree
January 11th, 2010, 06:38
No it's down at the moment. As mentioned before I can do 2000 GMT, what days are you free?

Phil

JoeGun
January 11th, 2010, 06:51
I'm on PST and 2000 GMT is right as I get off work, so I prob couldn't start until 2100 or 2130 GMT during the weekdays, and I booked this weekend... I'm not sure what timezone your in and how late you want stay up...

VenomousFiligree
January 11th, 2010, 07:12
I could start a session at 2100 GMT. A few guys are waiting for a midweek demo so would prefer to do it then.

JoeGun
January 11th, 2010, 07:15
midweek is good with me. I'm game just give me a day...I'll check out of work a bit early :)

VenomousFiligree
January 11th, 2010, 07:31
OK, I'll check with the other guys that have expressed an interest.

Maybe some of the previous players could give feedback on what was good, what needed explaining better on the last demo?

Also for the guys that want to play the upcoming demo, what do you want out of the demo? Do you want some RPing or straight into the nity gritty of FG and SW? Introduce everything at the start or explain things as they come up?

Phil

SavageGreek
January 11th, 2010, 08:21
I would like to see more of the nitty gritty of FG and SW. It was cool the way you did a general intro and then explained things as we went along (as the situation arose). I don't know how close we were to finishing but would like to complete the scenario. Need more explanation on how to cast spells and use modifiers while rolling. I enjoyed it very much last time and would like to try again. Thanks.

The sceanrio was practically complete, if it was an ongoing campaign the information you might obtain from captives could lead on to further adventures.

How about another demo 18th / 19th, for those that are interested?

Phil

Saberx7
January 11th, 2010, 18:43
I'm interested in this.

I won't have a reliable connection tomorrow-Thursday night. After that I'm good but can't do Tuesday (19th) or Thursday (21st) until late (2200 GMT).

JoeGun
January 11th, 2010, 19:08
18th or 19th is great for me.

VenomousFiligree
January 11th, 2010, 19:33
So 18th is looking good :)

JoeGun
January 11th, 2010, 19:38
awesome I'll be ready. are we going to connect to the server then and get the required SW files? or are you going to setup an earlier time to cut down on setup?

VenomousFiligree
January 11th, 2010, 19:42
I'll put the server up Sunday night, to allow downloading of the ruleset.

JoeGun
January 11th, 2010, 19:44
ok sounds great! thanks!

VenomousFiligree
January 12th, 2010, 14:56
OK, I'm getting a conflict in times that people can make, who can make a start time of 1900 GMT (http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/fixedtime.html?day=18&month=1&year=2010&hour=19&min=0&sec=0&p1=0) and who can make a start time of 2100 GMT (http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/fixedtime.html?day=18&month=1&year=2010&hour=21&min=0&sec=0&p1=0)?

Phil

Saberx7
January 12th, 2010, 17:11
I can make either on the 18th.

JoeGun
January 12th, 2010, 17:41
I can make either as well. I'm off that day :)

Answulf
January 12th, 2010, 17:49
18th is good, I can make either but prefer 1900 GMT.

VenomousFiligree
January 12th, 2010, 17:49
Lets make it 1900 then?

January 12th, 2010, 22:05
BTW, thanks for running these demos. I actually sat in the last one and it was nice to see the SW ruleset in action.

Good to play with you Doug and I enjoy running the games! :)

And on that note, who's on for tomorrow!?

Phil

undakai
January 17th, 2010, 14:36
Depends on what time tomorrow?

JoeGun
January 18th, 2010, 04:39
I'm in. 1900GMT is great. are you going to put up the server today so we can get the ruleset? or are we just going to do that tomorrow?

VenomousFiligree
January 18th, 2010, 07:36
Depends on what time tomorrow?
As JoeGun has said 1900 GMT (http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/fixedtime.html?day=18&month=1&year=2010&hour=19&min=0&sec=0&p1=0).

The server is up (soft monk ugly fang) and will be until we play.

VenomousFiligree
January 18th, 2010, 15:12
With only JoeGun expressing an interest, maybe we need to postpone? 2 in this thread haven't committed and 1 from email can't make it.

Phil

January 18th, 2010, 16:24
If you're in need of more players, I'll jump in; I'd like a chance to see how the ruleset is implemented. I assume we'll be using PreGen Characters?

Saberx7
January 18th, 2010, 17:40
I can definitely do it, so count me in. Still got like a hour and 20 minutes til the time right?

VenomousFiligree
January 18th, 2010, 17:43
OK if we have JoeGun, mygrey and Sabrex7 I'll run.

Yes there's about an hour 20 left, however try and connect as soon as you can to download the ruleset.

JoeGun
January 19th, 2010, 01:31
Thanks for running the game! It was awesome!

Saberx7
January 19th, 2010, 03:41
Yeah, I had a load of fun too. Thanks :)

Sorry I was unable to make that game. If you hold one in the near future between 1 and 10 AM GMT I'd be in.
