    Hey Borusa - I think you usually play CoC which definitey lends itself to text too. I would appreciate it though if you would clearly indicate Text for all In Game Actions in your description to help those looking for tetxt and to avoid dissapointment for those who dont like Text only. I think I played a game of Cthulhu a couple of Cons ago with you... a Roman setting?

    Finally posted a game, waiting for approval

    This game will use text only for roleplaying, which can lead to a more immersive game. Whilst it is only a short 'dungeon' it is hoped that this demo will give an appreciation of how text games run in Fantasy Grounds. Out of character questions, rules clarifications, etc will be handled by voice.

    In the heart of the wastelands, surrounded by steaming pools of foul water and broken mountains that rumble in their sleep, lie the ruins of a dark sepulcher never completed. Dug into the raw stone of a towering cliff, the first chambers were barely hewn when something ancient and evil awoke within the depths. Now the temple stands abandoned while the caverns below writhe with activity. Forsaken servants of the slain cultists await the return of their masters, inhuman creatures have been drawn to the power awakened, and far below the great evil broods within its lair. The Demon Delve Caverns await.

    A short dungeon style adventure for level 4 characters using the D&D Basic Rules (5e).

    Happy to see at least one game being offered that is primarily text based. I haven't actually played in FG yet, but I much prefer text based games in Roll20.

    I still need to look into scheduling to see if I can actually attend this year (signed up for an event last year and things fell apart on my end...and I'm not going to let that happen this year), but if possible I'll be signing up for this just to show support for text only games.

    How familiar would one need to be with D&D 5th ed to play this game?

    Slightly derailing here... where is it okay to advertise our games/ sessions for the con? I've put up two so far, but I feel like no one's going to notice them on the huge list unless I shout about them! (Also one of them, Dawn of the Scarlet Sun, is primarily text based too, so less of a derail...).

    In the FGCon forum here, on social media, any other roleplaying site where you can or is relevant.
    Current Regular Games: European FG2 RPG

    Using Ultimate FGII - that means anyone can play.

    levinth - please promote shamelessly anywhere that you think it might find an audience.
    i am making at least 6 posts a day on various sites but it needs more people talking about it in more places.
    if you see someone else posting - reply and add something extra to it - keep the ball rolling
    way too early to worry if you dont have enough bookings at this stage.
    about 1/4 of games fill up real quick, another 1/4 fill up by about 3weeks out, 1/4 fill up pretty close to the event and about 10% of games do get cancelled for lack of players

    i think your sessions were only posted this week. i wont have pimped those myself just yet but I also tend to try and look after the non pathfinder ones first because they traditionally need more help.
    please share them and some other stats on your favorite sites - particularly Pathfinder related ones.
    i will do a few bumps of your sessions over the weekend.

    one place im not at all active is Facebook - i know the SXG guys are - but there is a big opportunity to share out there too.

    quick stats:

    68hours of nearly non stop, round the clock gaming!
    5 intro sessions
    20+ pathfinder sessions
    15+ savage worlds sessions
    20 sessions of other RPG rulesets
    3 non english sessions
    at least 5 text only sessions
    totally free to play, no license required
    http://www.fg-con.com/events
    Over 150 player slots booked already
