in order to kick this off before the post-Con glow wears off, are there any GMs on these boards who would be interested in facilitating games again this year?

Once again I intend to model this off Games on Demand, but would like to be a little more organised around which games will be on offer when so GMs who also want to play will be able to.

Yes, I'll run some stuff for you. I'm prepared to offer Best Friends, Silver Kiss of the Magical Twilight of the Full Moon and Wuthering Heights.

I would also like to play some too Smile

I'll once again go for "I'd like to come but it will depend on what else is going on in my life then"

If I can make it, I'll bring games. I don't know what but I can probably manage Agon so Mash can try it. It will probably go best in a 4-hour session.

I'd be interested in facilitating:

Montsegur 1244 (4hr)
Monsters and Other Childish Things (probably 2hr)
Polaris (probably 2hr)

I have Agon and would be interested in running it but have been warned that I should probably play it before attempting to GM it. If there's interest, I might try to get a playtest group together to get my head around it and then offer it.

Would also run Bliss Stage if people want it (and if Morgue isn't offering it again), though at the moment I'm more interested in seeing that outside a con environment...

Oh and I'll be offering:

Mountain Witch (4 hrs) - Though if someone else is thinking of offering this I'd be keen to play it.

Derby of the Damned (2 hrs) - The still secret beta version 2!
Fiasco (2 or 4) I need to buy it and read it first, but sounds awesome!
Hot War (4 hrs) - Because it wouldn't be an on Demand con with out it!

How many more !! can I have in these sentences?!?!

Yep of course. I'll leave you off the list for now, but we can confirm closer to the time.

FWIW I have Greek and Persian minis, even 6 painted ones for the PCs (with roughly correct weapon choices) and a big bad + a range board for anyone who wants to run Agon.

Current thinking for the rounds are as follows:
Round 1 9 am - 1pm or 9 am - 11 am
Round 1a 11.15 - 1.15

Break

Round 2 2pm - 6pm or 2pm - 4pm
Round 2a 4.15pm - 6.15pm

Break

Round 3 7pm - 11pm or 7pm - 9pm
Round 3a 9.15pm - 11.15

Clean up and out by midnight.

Any thoughts, suggestions or concerns?

To keep the two streams in sync what about:

Round 1 9 am - 1pm or 9 am - 10.55 am
Round 1a 11.05 - 1.00

Break

Round 2 2pm - 6pm or 2pm - 3.55pm
Round 2a 4.05pm - 6.00pm

Break

Round 3 7pm - 11pm or 7pm - 8.55pm
Round 3a 9.05pm - 11.00

It might be a pain for groups of players who want to go to dinner together to wait 15 minutes (of a 60 minute break) for their friends to join them. Also, games at 2 hours are already running on at a tight clip, so 5 minutes is unlikely to even br noticed.

This may be too complicated -- I have mixed feelings myself -- but I thought I'd throw it out there for feedback:

How about making round 2 3 hours? The reason for suggesting this is that I was agonising over how long to estimate for "Polaris" -- 2 hours seems a bit tight what with character creation, but I'm not sure even I could take 4 hours of emo chivalric pixiedom.

Having one round pegged at 3 hours, while keeping the 2x2hr/1x4hr options for the other rounds, might provide a home for mid-length games while short and long games would still have plenty of available slots.

Not sure if it's worth the extra fiddliness or would do more harm than good, but just throwing it into the ring.

Yep that's also a good possibility. I'm intending to have each round set up fully before we start so there is less fluffing around between the end of 1 and the beginning of 1a (for example).
