FGDaze! games announcement thread.
Saturday January 19th 2019!
GMs please make a discussion thread specific to your game in this forum, create a game calendar entry (with the time of your event in the "Scheduled play times" section) and then announce your game(s) in this thread with links to your discussion thread and game calender entry.
Remember to use [FGDAZE] in your Calendar Campaign name
Please DONT reply to posts here - this is a listing of all games only.
Other posts will be removed from this thread.

FGDaze! is an opportunity for GMs to run a one shot of something special, something different, something fast and fun!
Its a great opportunity for new GMs to try their hand at a short session.

Its also a great place for new players to grab a game and get to experience some role playing fun.

And most importantly its a great place for players and GMs, new and old, to meet some other gamers.

GMs Your game post should include the following minimum information:

Session Time:
Calendar Link:
Number of Players:
Short Description:
Text/Voice:
GM License/Player License:

Other useful info includes:

Game System:
Genre:
Newbie Friendly:
Pre-requisites (esp for AL and PFS):

Create a Calendar Entry. Dont put a time up for voting - set the time and accept it so players know when the session runs. Its a great idea to make a separate thread for your game so that you and your players can discuss anything pre-game. Communicate regularly with your players so they have confidence the game is on and they know what is expected of them.

Players you should read the GM post carefully. Get the timezone stuff right. If you sign up - turn up - dont leave everyone else hanging. Express your interest in the Forum Thread (not this one - the one for your game) and sign up on the Calendar. If you are new make sure you have set your Timezone in your Profile (hit this link and scroll down.... https://www.fantasygrounds.com/forums/profile.php?do=editoptions).

[FG Daze] Encounter League (alpha) - streamlined oneshot encoutners and arena battles
This is a bit different... I've started a group that is something like a west marches meets one shots meets lair assualts meets arena battles hybrid. It is just in it's alpha verison, but to give players more options on FG Daze, I figured I would open the alpha to a wider audience that day. I recommend joining one of the other sessions if you are looking for a full one shot experience, but if they don't work out for you logistically, or if you just want to get some 5E combat in (with light story), while testing out a new character idea and meeting some other players, feel free to sign up and jump in.

I'll be starting the sessions at 2pm EST but I can't say exactly what time you'll be able to jump in an encounter. It'll depend on # of players. But I'll try to keep it rotating quickly and it's very flexible, so feel free to pop in and out as you please. For more info on the concept and the style of play, check out the website, or join the discord channel.

Website: http://encounterleague.com/how-it-works/
Discord Server: https://discord.gg/KqYvUu3

If you plan to join, I recommend creating a 3rd level PC before hand to be able to jump in the action quicker. You can view the fantasy grounds forums for more info on how to do this. I will have some pregens available though.

Calendar Link: https://www.fantasygrounds.com/calen...ex.xcp?id=3341
Number of Players: Open, but up to 5 players at a time for 30-60 minute sessions. You may be able to play in multiple sessions depending on # of players in queue.
Short Description: You are part of a large mercenary guild taking on short contracts and peforming in a legendary arena to recruit new customers.

GM License/Player License: Ultimate

So this is the 1st FG game I have signed up for I did so reached out on the forums as was told I should contact the GM prior to play I did so yesterday and still have not heard anything back and am not sure how FG works entirely. I have tried tutorial videos but am still unclear I have discord installed and running I hope I can figure everything out. Any other suggestions. Also I have no books or modules as not sure what I need yet so the FG app does not work entirely. Please assist.

Welcome, Ready Player 1, and sorry for the confusion. Looks like the DM didn't finalize a time and ever confirm the game. You took the right steps on your end. (You may want to send the GM a personal email, for good measure or ask about a reschedule.) You might post to the other 5e games to see if they'll accept an alternate, or go to the LFG group in Discord.

The game was actually filled a few days ago as was posted in the separate thread I had created. Sorry that you didn't get into the game Ready Player 1. I plan on running some one-shots in the future.

Oops. Just realized it wasn't for my game lol.
