Hi folks. For those who don't know me, I'm a long time Forge-whatever and GenCon booth-goer, located in San Jose. As part of diving back in to the Forge-ish world, I'd like to play a lot of different games AND contribute something back to the on-line community . Here's what I'm thinking: a day of play dedicated to the Ronnies games (followed by Actual Play posts at the Forge, of course). Most of 'em (it seems to me) can be played in a substantive way in 3-4 hours, so with a little luck a group of 3-5 folks could get through 3 games in a day - more if (as I suspect) 2 hours-ish of play is enough to yield useful results. And depending on how many people are interested/available, we could have multiple groups cycling through the games . . .
Anyway, that's the rough idea. If it sounds interesting, post your interest and availability. I have a home that could accomodate (with some cramming) 20ish people. Or we could pick a day at DunDraCon (I'm not currently commited to attending, but some interest in this kind of play would change that right quick) on the 17th-20th.
I'm also thinking that this kind of multiple group, multiple game event ("game speed dating", someone at the Forge called it recently) would be a cool thing to do at some of the local conventions - Ronnies-focused or not. I have some friends that attend most of the local conventions, and they claim there were people clamoring for a "Forge booth" at the Labor Day con (I forget which one that is). I obviously can't make it happen for DunDraCon, but maybe in May at KublaCon?
