I should know better than to go look at a bundle of holding. Both of the current sets purchased :-)

+Gordon McDonald I'll agree with that sentiment as well. But for me it's both that and the money. New apartment, upcoming wedding and so forth.

Tagging +Fred Hicks on this post, since he likes to share Kickstarters around and has a pile of folks who follow him.

Swinging Jivecat Voodoo Lounge looked super shiny at initial glance, but looking at the print-and-play (which is available, no strings attached, on the KS) game/rules and watching the playthrough / review videos, the game looks like solid fun.

They're creeping toward goal, but they need all the support they can get. I love supporting smaller folks with their games and this one has been play testing for quite a while apparently, so the game is pretty solid. Plus you get martini glasses and cocktail monkeys!

W David MacKenzie is raising funds for Swinging Jivecat Voodoo Lounge on Kickstarter! Sip your cocktail, warm up your power skulls. and get ready to score some magical monkey points at the Swinging Jivecat Voodoo Lounge!

[No Rest]

It looks like my rough intentions for my downtime for No Rest For The Wicked are going to be impractical. So I'm putting out feelers for endeavors I can get involved in.

Captain Bartholomew Nox is a capable Psyker with high Integrity and is an experienced criminal and pirate. He'll work on commission as long as the profit (in money, favours or resupply) is high enough as it's hard to keep a ship running beyond the line. You would need to pay a large premium to get him to take a job within imperial space.

He can probably be contacted without too much trouble by people with Criminal, Psyker, or less savoury Imperial Navy contacts.

He captains the Milady De Winter, a very fast Sloop with stealth capabilities. It's at it's most effective on criminal endeavors that involve the ship using its stealth capabilities.

Anyone planning something that I can help with? Or Anyone looking for  endeavors themselves and interested in teaming up for pirate action?

Because I must know someone that's a viable candidate for this role!
 
Roll20 is hiring a Game Master. As a job. As in, you'll get paid to be an RPG guru and run games. All online, so you can work from anywhere in the US. 

And they pay you. Money. To run games. It's almost like being a professional football player. 
We're Hiring We’re happy to announce we are looking for a new team member! Games Master Roll20 is seeking a seasoned Game Master (DM, GM) to become our roleplaying game system guru and Twitch...

Sadly also limited to the US (not even the US and Canada), for little discernible reason. ;)

No Rest Downtimes are open!

If you're considering joining the crew of the Milady De Winter or employing her services, get in touch asap!
 
Greetings to the notable and not-so-notable of the sector,

As previously announced, downtimes are now open! They will remain so until 23:59:59 on Friday 6th of February.

If you have any questions pertaining to downtimes, please get them in early. Rob will be answering queries on a strictly limited schedule which will be reduced to no more than 50 minutes once a day in the final week of downtimes.

We are still looking for volunteers to co-write downtime responses for other people/groups. Applicants would be expected to write around 1000 words of narrative fiction for a given endeavour over a two week period, and particularly productive pen-pushers may ask for more responses to write. Applicants should apply prior to Friday 6th of February so we know what resources are available.

In rule-related announcements, we are glad to welcome Phill Burnham to the team as our rules consultant. Phill will be working with us on improving our rules system and working out some of our chronic rules problems. He is not part of the storytelling team, but you can reach him (and us) by emailing rules@norestforthewicked.org.uk

Contrary to our previous announcement (we're sorry), we are looking at potentially changing the Seneschal talents Supply Cache and Emergency Supplies, particularly in respect to consumables prior to When Angels Fall. Phill has already presented options to us and we would like to give him a chance to form a solid solution before the event if possible as this is presenting a large problem at present. As you may know, vast quantities of consumables are being produced by these talents every game which are unbalancing our encounters at effectively zero cost. While we don't want to remove the edge that having consumables can give players, the ability to produce such quantities at zero cost is a severe problem. If we decide to go ahead with changes, we will make an announcement to this effect by the 13th of February, and we will offer XP refunds to anyone who is affected and wishes to drop the talents as a consequence.

We have also been working on a new trade system with Adam Ottaway, and while it isn't complete yet, we have an overview of what the new system entails available for interested parties. You can find that here: https://copy.com/nQjo3aoKLFltx2Gc

A final reminder that remainder payments for deposit holding players of When Angels Fall are due before Sunday 1st February. Remainder payments can be paid at http://billetto.co.uk/when-angels-fall/

We have arranged for catering for players and crew through Mhorish - Skian Mhor's catering arm. Player catering tickets will be available on Billetto shortly and will be available until the 27th of February. Those who prefer to self-cater or who miss the deadline for catering tickets will be able to use a second kitchen on the premises.

Be seeing you,

Yoda, Rob, Richard

Sharing to take a look at later.
 
Taking a starter look at Nerf and Larp. Also keen to hear from anyone who wants to share experiences of Larping with Nerf guns
Nerf weapons seem to be becoming a more and more popular resource in LARP games. Both as representing a ranged attack by an animal (such as a beastie firing quills) or as a representation of guns. ...
