Lets Organize a Game!

I'm still pretty new to the GM scene so I don't think I'd be willing to run another game just yet, but I'd love to get in on a game online with other Beta testers. Who is up, for what, and when?

I have lots of time on my hands. I get up around 2000 UTC and like to be in bed by 1400 UTC. I teach from 0600 to 0900 UTC on Mondays and Wednesdays, and I have a scheduled game from 0930 to 1330 UTC on Wednesdays. This week I have people coming to dinner about 0800 to 1100 UTC. Otherwise I'm free. I'd like to run or play in something rules-light in improv-storytelling style, with little emphasis on counter-shoving combat. Adventure fiction in any genre from Alexandre Dumas (pere) to, say, Steven Spielberg. Including either Cubby Broccoli or Ian Fleming. Or I have an SF mystery I designed for a con once that I could run under ForeSight with very little further prep. That runs well in three to four hours at a table, and setting up the character sheets, scenes, briefings, and props in Roll20 might be an interesting exercise. That needs at least three character-players and has room for five.

I'd love to play a space SF game, however i don't have a good system to play it. Not in a Star Trek or Star Wars universe, but a general future world game. There are a ton of tokens in roll20 for it too! Also I'm intersted in playing an Avatar (The last Airbender) style game.

Sorry, but the SF adventure I'm offering now is a planet SF game. It's still pretty good, though. I would be running it using ForeSight, which is excellent for the purpose.

I wonder if this should be its own separate forum for game organizing? I probably can't start anything this upcoming week, but I'd like to get in on a game the week after if anyone's running. SF mystery sounds neat, I've never played Foresight.

What time-zone are you in, Kage? I'm thinking of running 9,401 twice for up to five players each time, once in a time-slot convenient to Europeans and once in a time-slot convenient to Americans. I'll have to work out when that is, because I'm in UTC+10. I understand that "looking for players" and "looking for groups" facilities are something that the designers plan to take on after beta testing. When the app goes gold then it will be time to start developing a market.

I'm in CST.

There are four time-zones known as "CST". I'm going to assume that you aren't in Australian Central Standard Time, China Standard Time, or Chungyuan Standard Time. Consulting Wikipedia, I find that US Central time is UTC-6, so I'm sixteen hours ahead of you. If you wanted to play at 7–11 PM and we picked up some people in USEST who wanted to play 8–midnight, I would be GMing at about 11 AM to 3 PM the next day. That seems practicable.

Er, yes, sorry. Central Standard. I'm normally on around at that time, so that would work great for me if we could find a few more people.

Agemegos, I'm USEST (UTC-5) which puts me in your 8-12 category. Depending what day you choose (as I have a variable work schedule and a 4-year old who I have custody half the week) I might be interested in giving this a try. I've never tried ForeSight, but my own plying of the internet leads me to believe it's pretty easy to pick up?

The scenario I'm planning to run is designed so that it can be played at a con by players with no previous experience of ForeSight . That's not to say that there aren't complexities in ForeSight 's design systems (for characters, vehicles, and weapons) and even in its combat system (and chase-scene system), but I have pre-generated the characters for this scenario and their weapons and armour, and am adept at talking players through their choices in combat. I can do 11AM to 3PM (Australian) EST any day, but I have a couple of things on this afternoon and might not have the scene prep done until tomorrow.

Okay, I have a campaign sufficiently prepped that I would be able to run it as well as I did at the con it was designed for. Setting up pages for the standard encounters will be some help, but isn't necessary. I'll do that if I get a couple of days. The adventure ran in four-hour slots at the con. It's designed for five players but can get by with four and maybe even with three. • I'm willing to run it at about 11 AM to 3 PM my time, which would be 7 PM – 11 PM American Central standard time, and ought to be okay for someone in the US Eastern time zone if they are okay staying up to midnight and for someone in the US Mountain time zone if they can get home from work and start at 6 PM. • I'm willing to run it 1 PM to 5 PM my time, which is 7PM – 11 PM Pacific standard time, 8 PM – midnight Mountain standard time. Or perhaps an hour later if that would suit the players. But I couldn't do that on Monday or Wednesday, which would be Sunday night or Tuesday night in the USA. • I'm willing to run it from 8 PM to midnight my time, which would be 10 AM to 2 PM standard time in the UK and Portugal, 11 AM to 3 PM standard time in western and central Europe and in Scandinavia. That might be suitable on a Saturday or Sunday, but I can't do it this coming Saturday (the 12th of May). Are there five beta-testers (including beta-test minions) keen to play in any of those time zones? I'll post more about the adventure in its own thread shortly.

Splendid! Let's not flood this discussion with details of organising one particular game. I have a started a discussion for my game offer at <a href="http://community.roll20.net/discussion/comment/1451#Comment_1451" rel="nofollow">http://community.roll20.net/discussion/comment/1451#Comment_1451</a> .
