GPM dates for October, November 2019 and Jan 2020

It’s like buses this time out, with not one but three dates!  One of them is jolly exciting, so read on!

Sunday 27th October Our usual 1 pm to 5 pm meet up. If you want to GM contact me over the next couple of days and I’ll open player sign up on Sunday evening.

Sunday 10th November. Since this date is post-Grogmeet, a one-day RPG meet up mainly for old games, which runs on Saturday, I’m opening up attendance to Grogmeeters who’ve not yet fled Manchester to go home.

So if you are coming please let me know, by registering here.

I will be asking everyone to do this so I can plan GMs in advance to match numbers.

So far I have myself, Roderick and Chris (aka Dirk the Dice) who is Grogmeet organiser are down to GM. We need more GMs. So let me know if you would like to when you sign up.

December – No Go Play this month, while Fanboy is happy to have us. I’m going to be swamped with end of term school Christmas concerts.

GPM Winter Con 2019, Saturday 11th January.
To celebrate Go Play Manchester’s 1st Birthday, we shall be holding a one-day mini-con at Fanboy 3. 10 am start – 5 pm finish, with an hour or so for lunch. Two slots, with a possible social afterwards.

I floated this one past some of our regular GM’s so we’ve already got three or so GMs, but with Hedi offering all six tables on the ground floor and me inviting folk from far and wide, we are going to need more GMs. You lot get first dibs, but you need to let me know by return since when I announce it to the wider audience, I’m sure there be no shortage of offers.

Like the Nov GPM, I’m asking everyone to pre-sign via a form on the mini-con’s page.

(BTW advertise this page and let your friends know)

Like a normal GPM, all games will be pre-signed before the event, so you can sit down and play.

I am looking forward to seeing you on the day(s).

All the best

Go Play Manchester V Player Allocation

This comes a day early, because all three games being offered for GPM V on Sunday, June 23rd, 1-5pm at Fanboy 3, are completely full.

Please note because Liminal was very popular as a first choice, I’m now running a second Liminal adventure called “A Walk in the Park” (see details after player allocation table).  So if you didn’t get into Paul’s “Benneth the Stones” as your first choice then I’ve put you in “A Walk…”.

System Alien RPG Liminal Liminal
GM Paul B Mitch Newt
Player 1 Roderick Dorte Martin
Player 2 Andy H Udo Fil
Player 3 Jeremy Lynn May
Player 4 Richard John R Daniel
Player 5 Dan Andrew A-W Debbie

Here are the details of my Liminal game

A Walk In the Park

You wanted a break from the Liminal World. A world full of ghosts jumping out of old cupboards, werewolves on the moors, schemes of magical societies in the houses of power and vampires at the disco. So, you wanted to get out of the city, to somewhere remote but not the middle of nowhere. Where you could enjoy the creature comforts while being able to take a peaceful walk in the countryside. A friend on your network of contacts came up with just the place.

A mate of theirs needs a house sitter while they are on holiday. Their 1930s house is large enough for you and the rest of your crew and is in Royton, an old mill town just down the road from Manchester in the North West.  All they ask is that walk their dog in the county park at the end of the street at least once a day. Should be a nice and relaxing break?
