I would expect that any GM running an adventure at GenCon would have read it beforehand, so slot zeroing at Gencon so you can play it before reading it, does not compute. From experience, waiting to read an adventure at the con never works. You think you will find a quiet space durng a dinner break or one of your open slots, but there are no quite spaces and someone always manages to find you and start a multi-hour conversaion. A person reading quitely is like waving a sign that says, "TALK TO ME NOW!"

Now if a GM wanred to play it in order to become even more familiar with the adventure, I'd buy that.

Blaudy, blah, blah, blah.....LOL. Everyone will have their take on Slot-O's and what they mean to them, but they used to be very important as someone usually had to eat them in previous Living Campaigns as you couldn't play it once you'd ran it.

I simply would love to play it BEFORE I read it...run it, as it then ruins it for me as a player. Now the getting to know the module better or w/e you want to say is ALL very good and is so obvious that it need not be mentioned. But, for me, I'd love to play it before I run it and thus the question to see if anyone's going to do anything as such.

Tracy,

What "slots" need a GM still for either location? I will be in town Wed and may have an afternoon free. I don't follow the message-boards very much so I'm late, but if you still need someone...let me know plz.

Also, if anyone's doing any hotel gaming. I'm looking for #4-01 to play before I have to "eat" in on Sunday, if we can't Slot 0 in here.

Tiamack

You can take my Midnight Mailer at Scotty's if you want. I just volunteered to make sure the slot was covered while all the VCs are at the dinner.

On 4-01, I would love to play it or even GM it as a slot-0 with others running it at Gen Con. I'm currently set to play something at Scotty's Wed afternoon, but would gladly do 4-01 instead. I could also be convinced to do it late Wed (in our room?).

Mike,

I'll sign up on Warhorn and gladly run "Midnight Mauler" as I'm confirmed that I'll have the time.

Thanks,

Tiamack

Mike,

I appreciate your offer and just need to check one major thing before I accept. I'll let you know in the next 24 hours though if that's not a problem:)

IIRC Tracy was clear that the GMs for Scotty's were not to run any scenario being offered up at Gen Con.
Already checking on that. The suggestion was as a hotel game, so it wouldn't be public anyhow.

The whole reason behind Slot-0's is so that a GM may play it before running it as it often ruins the playability for most players if they know what is to happen (as it is w/ me:(). I understand the non-public aspect as it's a premiere, but to make a table some players that may only ever be players should be allowed...IMHO, or atleast that's the way it used to be handled. It's not supposed to just be to play it before everyone else, but to get the potential GM's ready to GM it better while not spoiling it for themselves.

As this looks like a split basically 50/50 for a ruling, can we get someone official to have a say? I see both sides, but would like to "know" how to officially rule this one!

Pretty please:)

Just a comment:

That's Coup de Grâce, not coup de gras.

Oh come now, we can spell check each other all day:) Everyone knows what it means......lol

But other than that, great post. CdG can definitely be used IMO, and should be if the situation is right as I'm sure PLENTY of PC's use it on the baddies out there when they can.

Does anyone know if the Animal Shaman variant for Druids will ONLY include the animals listed in the book or will there be more? Pretty limited imo, they should atleast be able to worship any animal orginally listed as available for companion use in the Core. Not looking for anything weird, just like a Panther or Tiger Shaman. Any more info on this subject yet?
