Fair enough. There's a lot to be said for having nice shiny visible books at these events.

And the December convention is scrapped because reasons. Some good, rest pretty garbage to be honest.

Might be some satellite sessions, but I doubt I will get to run anything

Have to put my faith in the library RPG day in November (probably too soon to have a hardcover or even electronic Discworld) and the sessions are both exactly two and a half hours.

We will see if that happens.

Next chance Easter when I want to travel and then middle of the year when I might no longer have car to reliably get to these far off places.


oh well

And International Games day report back.

Something like five GMs turned up.

First spot. Just one player who I brought. But we ended up having to play CoC with all the GMs who wanted to stay rather than go home.

Second session.

Someone brought their primary school kids, a few other players showed up late for first season, but then left before second session and one other player showed up.

There was one extra name on my sign up sheet, but I dont know what happy them (maybe she went into D&D group)

That gave a big enough group for D&D.

And we had to end up in an Unknown Armies game because a bunch of volunteers were rangled into it.


So no GURPS game this year probably.


Lessons

Next time try harder to bring two players let alone three!

Probably tout a little harder at lunch. Though I think you either want to play Discworld or you don't. My player certainly had no idea what it was he just came for the GURPS.

Ok, I advertised a Discworld RPG session at a 'new' gaming club. 8 players have already signed up and I'm running it as an open session.


I decided to go with my own session instead of the ones I got off Phil.

We will see how many people come on the day.

(I've got to pay an entry fee even as the GM!)
