After a long break, we are back at Fanboy 3 in Manchester City Centre on Sunday 14th November, in the afternoon 1 to 5 pm.
This is our traditional post-Grogmeet meetup. This is a public event. If you are a GPM regular, a Grogmeet attendee who wants one more game before going home, or someone who has never come to one of our event’s before, simply register for the event when we open registration in about a week or two. Join our email newsletter to be alerted when this happens.
Player registration and games sign up will be via Warhorn, an online game sign up system. Registration will open up in one to two weeks, once we have more GMs. Sign up to our email newsletter to be told when. Games sign up will open be two weeks before the event, on Sunday, October 31st at 8 pm. Again we will notify registrants via email beforehand.
Please note, Fanboy 3 do have Covid 19 prevention measures in places, such as space between tables and a maximum of four players per game, which we will be following. This is a cautious return, and the meetup will be smaller and less busy than it was previously.
Also if the situation changes, such as cases rising and new measures being brought into place, we will communicate this to attendees in a timely manner.
Just to let you know that after the grand total of one person (Blythy) answering my call for GMs for our next online meetup, I’ve decided to put Go Play Manchester into hibernation for the foreseeable future. No reflection on anyone, it’s just the GMs are all busy with regular commitments.
I’m going to review the situation in early spring (March 1st) next year 2021, and hopefully, things will have significantly improved by then.
Please note the previously advertised Go Play Manchester this coming Saturday 24th October is not going ahead.
The next date is Sunday 15th November – our post-Grogmeet meet-up.
If you would like to run a game at this meetup, please visit the GM’s Information page and submit a game using the form. I’m going to hold sign up for the games on Sunday 1st November – so please submit your game details by then.
The attendee list has been updated with all the names of the attendees.
Game Sign Up will open here at 9 pm tonight.
Also when you give us your 1st and 2nd choice of game, please indicate if you are coming to the social on Saturday night (7.30-10 pm) or either of the planned panels that are due to be held on Friday night ( 9-10.30pm ) and Sunday Morning (11.30-1 pm). Roderick our social organiser will then email you the joining details for those events. More details about these events when I send out the email this evening.
You are a survey team working for Chigusa Corporation, en-route to one of CC’s asteroid mining operations when you’re unexpectedly told to make a diversion. A team of scientists have sent out a distress beacon requesting assistance. Their ship is crashing into JWL-5, a lifeless planet with a toxic, corrosive atmosphere. They need rescue before their supplies run out and they succumb to the planet’s poisons. It’s a routine job. Go in, pick up survivors, get out. What could possibly go wrong?
System: Swords Against the Shroud
GM: Newt Newport
In the slave ship, your ragtag band of adventurers are getting a free ride to the Lost Lands of Grungamesh. The land is full of ancient ruins, untouched by looters. You share this hold with a group of Melonfarmers from the old country, who are making the long voyage into the unknown in the hope tier new land is more fertile. Amongst the hope and excitement, there is fear. They talk about a haunted tower on the edge of the lands they are going to take up. An old sorcerer’s tower that glows eerie in depths of the night. Apparent their new Lord and Master has been talking about sending someone up there to sort it out. People have been going missing, the previous tenant farmers they say. Where your new farmer friends see terror, you see adventure.
