GMs: The Game Timetable for North Star 2019 is live. Please lay in your navigational coordinates and plan your jump routes. Feel free to post your games below and/or on the Facebook page.


Notes
-------
1) Do not book a game unless you have registered.
2) I will accept TBCs at the moment and will look to firm up in the new year.
3) Message me if you make a multi-slot booking so I can confirm it doesn't mess up numbers
4) Please consider maximising the number of players you can take. There are presently 7 games available each slot. If everyone offers 4 player games then we are marginal vs the numbers we need for the con to be viable.
5) I can see your changes to the timetable, please do not alter other people's entries.
6) No more than 2 games per GM (this may well change).

Please don't bother Elaine McCourt about games as I have taken over the Games Star role from her for North Star. A big thank you to Elaine for setting up the booking system.

I've just sent off my registration dosh to Graham.
If there is space I'd like to run Doctor Who (any slot except Sat evening).

UNIT: COLD WAR
It’s 1985 and the Cold War is going strong. UNIT HQ have sent you on a tricky diplomatic mission. The Soviet Army has discovered something weird. There’s just one teeny, tiny problem: the weird thing is in Afghanistan and there’s a war on. The PCs need to investigate without riling up the Soviets, annoying the CIA or accidentally starting World War 3.

Players: 5

We'll be finalising off the initial games list to move into pre-booking once Seven Hills is done.
Ideally, we could do with another 4-6 players so if you know anyone who's interested, let them know to register soon.

We have one GM slot in Slot 3 left and 2 in Slot 5 if anyone wants to run. If you're running 2 slots already, contact me first.

First week back after the Easter holidays, so getting time off might be hard and my technician is off the following week so I’d need to drive back Sunday and be in work Monday which might be tough. And I’m guessing accommodation is going to be scarce now too. All adds up to me being able to make up numbers a little hard ☹️

Oops! Looks like I got my dates wrong (was looking at the 2018 event on Facebook, no 2019 event listed), which removes the work clash issues, however does still leave the accommodation issue. More thought required...

Canceled my room today since the open roads call to me instead. There should be rooms available.

I called the Garrison on Monday and they found a room for me. Initially I was told that they were fully booked but they subsequently called me back to say they had a room.

PS FYI any organisers of the con, the con site (http://www.northstarcon.org.uk/) is constantly timing out. I've not been able to get on to it since Sunday.
Servage are a bit poo. I will rehost everything as soon as I can. Anyway, welcome!!!

If you need hosting for the Garrison cons, just shout. Still have a stake in a private hosting operation and would be happy to help. Can do DNS too if required.

- Neil.
That is a great offer. Not sure how Graham, Dom and Tom pay hosting bills, spikes in traffic and fight off bots, but it is not free of charge in my experience.
