Do I go with:

Nefertiti Overdrive?
Polaris: Chivalric Tragedy at Utmost North?
The Word for the World is...?

Or do I run something that I know has worked in the past?

Go for Nefertiti Overdrive. I want to watch. Polaris might be really hard on total rookies.

But to forewarn, I may be hoping for no newbies to join because I've been wanting to play that game for ages

My game should hopefully wrap up in early July. It's a shame because I was really hoping to have it done before I travelled (as that will likely delay the end a bit) but I don't mind as long as it successfully wraps and the players enjoy. Then to start brainstorming games for the next initiative!

God bless,
Kezle

Not sure what I'll run yet, but maybe Paranoia. I have the 2nd Edition but I've never played the game at all so I'm not sure...

We're almost done! My players managed a partial win in the showdown phase and now we just need to do final scenes and XP awards! I can hardly believe it's coming to a close.

We finished our game! 47 pages of posts and 5.5 months! We’ve done the final home scenes and are just doing the XP and evolutions in the OOC thread.

After loosing a couple players in the first part of character generation we kept the rest through to the end so those that started the first posts IC were the same that did the last posts.

Thanks for organizing the initiative, from the new players and the new GM.

I was lurking the whole time, and it was a fabulous scenario from beginning to end !

...124 to run fleeing from the mountain. ...125 to use a rope to climb the steep cliff. ...126 to quickly cast "summon stairs." ...127 to dodge under the falling rocks.

I'm so jealous! Some of my players have really slowed down - right when we are at the endgame... I just want to complete my game!

I know the feeling too - my second game of Lexicon is almost to the end... I'm moving us on the W, X, Y, & Z this week, and after that, well, I'll be calling it done.

My Newbie game is now just wrapping up! A few "finishing off" posts and we'll be done!


I am very very happy to say that both of the children (playing as the witches) have had fun playing Tales of the Village, as have the parents (playing the animal companions). In fact they have asked if we could carry on playing into another story!!


So I'll be devising a new story for them to play in shortly and setting up new IC and OOC threads to continue their adventures, this time without the "newbie" part of the title as they now are not noobs!


For those who havn't peeked into our game, here are the banners skillfully made for us by the banner guild:




(These are also available in their componant parts, so each person can post their own part of the image.)

Well, we / I’ve finished the game by skipping a few scenes and pulling the aftermath forward. It’s been a tough one.
