But seriously, Cy, you can put me on the reserve list so that more newcomers can have another slot.  O:-)

To say that Jim and I are delighted to see the response to this is an understatement. It's nice to see that there are more crazy people in this world...


After some discussion, we've decided that with so many potential players, it would be a shame to not allow as many people to play as possible. As such, we're going to run a second instance of this campaign, with me as umpire. This will allow all of the "reserves" to play right away, as allow some who have already signed up but are gluttons for punishment to play on the other side. Finally, and not the least reason for doing this, Jim/Cyrano/JK will get a chance to play too!


So, stay tuned. As I get a chance to get my arms around this tonight after work we'll start getting the second instance organized.


Good thing I bought a new dice tower at Origins...

If there is room in either game, I'd be happy to join in; otherwise, I'd be happy to be a RESERVE.

It took a while to concoct this elaborate scheme...OK, not that elaborate...but I'm glad Doug has taken it into the light of day.

I've caught up the reserves as I know them and we are very nearly full with game TWO.

My present goal is to have commands, &c., for Game ONE resolved this evening.

Thereafter, I'll shortly get packets out to players.

For those in Game ONE, please, if you were not in the Jena KS, send me a "hey, it's me" e-mail to jenacampaignATgmailDOTcom and tell me your forum moniker.

Best,

Jim

If there is room in the second game I would like to be included in that one also.

Thank you for any consideration.
