No, this isn't a pitch for a Shadowrun game or something. It's just that I posted an announcement re: Hyphen-Con, and in it I made some executive decisions.

If anyone has a problem with closing the date poll on the 7th, or with a March 14th deadline for game submissions, please let me know and we'll work it out. We need to start setting some deadlines for this stuff so it doesn't drag out forever.

This works for me.

Why not just make everything for the 7th

I dunno -- two weeks seems like a nice round number. I figure if we close submissions on the 14th, we have 10 days to do the two rounds of voting. Do you think we need more than 10 days? Maybe we need more than 10 days.

Okay, then we'll go with that: All games in by March 7, Round 1 of voting begins March 8th, Round 2 begins March 14th and ends March 21st.

I'm starting to get curious as to how many people will be showing up this year. Will we have to have four games per session this time? Kinda sounds like it. Will the Kore orifices even be big enough? Hope so!!

Assuming a full compliment of 6 players each game, plus GM, we're talking 21 folks for 3 games per session, or 28 folks for 4 games per session.

I think we might have to plan for 4 games per session plus two alternates. Thoughts?

I don't see any indication that attendance would jump by that much. It'd be cool, but we haven't even had half that many replies to the date poll. Still, we'll see how many people vote for games (counting voters here, not votes) -- that'll give us a better idea of what to plan for.

Last year we had 24 people. The second session had to accomodate a 4th game. 28 is only 4 more than last year. Morgan, Sayler, your other LA gaming buddies... Could happen.

No way of telling how many people might show up. Hopefully the RSVP thread will help but we can plan for 4 games each session. I believe there were four games in session two last year (Trans Space, D&D4, Kung Fu Fate, In Space).

I'd like to drive down from LA to make it, especially if I can get in on the Danger Patrol game. How do I sign up? Whose palm do I have to grease?

Oh, our palms are greasy enough, I think. If you drive down from LA, you're guaranteed* to get in the Danger Patrol game. I mean, if you get there early enough -- probably sometime late-morning. How's that?

If you're interested in playing anything else besides that, there's still a chance to make your voice heard. We're all very democratic here, y'know. Check out the tie-breaker poll and vote for two games. It ends at midnight tomorrow (essentially), so get on it.
