We are still looking for people. we have 3 more slots left to fill. If we don't get a few more people by Sunday I will be forced to cancel this game which I really don't want to do.

Give it more time Daedalus. A lot of people will sign up at the last minute. I had 4 sign up on the last day for last FGDaze.

We're about to do another ad campaign on social media here. In the meantime, spread the word about FGDaze to your circles, forums you frequent, Facebook, G+, Twitter, etc.

The main reason we started FGDaze! was to give newbies chances to get a taste of FG. Most new people will sign up very close to the game, not 10 days in advance. Please give it more time and only cancel very close to the session time, and only if you really have to. Thanks.

There are other games (Including a Savage Worlds Game) that has filled up. It's not about the people, the setting is just a bust. It happens

I will give it until Wednesday. If I don't have the people by the time I get home on Wednesday (and I doubt I will) I will cancel it. I don't want to waste time preparing for a game that no one shows up to

Understandable, Daedalus. It's a shame, though. I'm not a huge fan of the A-Team, but what a great setting for some Savage Worlds. Was this entirely your idea? I think it's just fantastic.

Daedulus as others have said, many do not enroll until closer to the date simply because they are waiting to see what all may be offered and what has already filled up. Right now DnD 5e sessions are over booked, while other rulesets take more time. For instance, the only reason I have not yet signed for your game is I have one starting at ten on Saturday, yours starts at 3 and I am not certain I would have time between games to go back to back like that, though I have done. Also even game day if you are short players, if you put looking for players behind your nic on the teamspeak server you can sometimes pick up one or two at the last minute as well. The only thing else I can think of that might be helpful is those GM's finding they have too many players enrolled too drop a note to the extras directing them to other games that are either similar and still have openings, or in a similar time frame and still have openings. Other than that, I have found the FGDaze and FG-Cons to be be a great opportunity to meet new players for your regular games, so if any way at all to hang in there you will find down the road you are glad you did. Just my 2 cents worth.

Yes it was. Luckily in the core book there were archetypes which fit all 4 of the characters. I took those archetypes, put them into hero builder and modified them a bit to more fit the characters. The setting and background are all original from a cult group that I wrote up and applied to the setting.

Thank you for the kind words

Crymoricus

You are right. It was a lot of fun and it was a very memorable game that's for sure

It was a lot of fun, playing characters that are pretty much iconic in our times. And our B.A. Baracus was absolutely brilliant well done.

Hey, Ellspeth,

Did you know your PM box is full, and that you can't accept anymore PM's until you clear some out? At least that's the message I'm getting.

Ellspeth

No I didn't realize I was full on messages, and it doesn't seem to delete individually I had to dump the entire inbox folder, I hope I didn't lose anything I should have saved. But yes, it told me my folder was full and to empty it which I did so it should be good now.
