I am interested, but unfortunately since I am a veteran I have to hold back. For now.

I didn't read the game in detail until just.

Now I'm torn, but less torn because Foo Foo will not be a mouse. Anyways, I made Foo Foo a halfling elsewhere, not that it matters here.

But if your table doesn't fill up on 22 Mar, this will probably be my application:

Quote:
Mdm President.

It is without prejudice to Mr William Barr that I seek your consideration that he be replaced. While he may be academically qualified to fill the position, the political climate has changed and is unpredictably capricious. Situations on the ground do not get driven by academics alone, and Mr Barr has not shown yet to be fully competent in providing you best advice in previous crises, including considering the practicable solutions and alternatives such as for the recent currency speculations and dip.

While I may not hold the best academic qualifications if these be imperative to your Cabinet, I offer precious experience. My experience comes from having performed pro bono work for many of my associates, many of whom hold high positions that I cannot name, transpiring into the outcomes they desired. I have helped many people on the street, neighbours and friends, who otherwise cannot afford the costs of legal advice, so that they are accorded fairer treatment amongst bureaucrats or the richer who would otherwise trump over them. I don't just talk the walk, I walk the talk. In the premises, my allegiance will not just be to you but also to the people we serve, which in my personal opinion, should rightly be so.

For the avoidance of doubt, my application is for the appointment as Attorney General. I would be willing to consider working beside Mr Barr, provided you consider offering me certain veto powers during a state of crisis or to prevent the same from happening should my opinion sit opposite of Mr Barr's.

If you truly require a single sentence for this application, semi-colons may well do to replace all the full-stops applied in the aforementioned, although I will advise that nothing is truly absolute or variable, as the case may be.

All good things,
Norman Gold (Mr).

If the table fills, I think it'd be equally fun playing an orc (because I did goblin).

To be perfectly honest, if I do get zero newbies by end of tomorrow, I might not actually run this. I like to do my part in terms of community service, but I don't feel I necessarily need to run a game solely for established PbF-ers at this time. whistle

I have no newbies interested in my game either, which is fine. Unusual games tend to fill up after all the standard games are filled. And sometimes all it takes is one person and the snowball of applicants starts!

As for the other games on the list...

I'm sad the cat game filled up. cry I'll probably lurk on it anyway. ninja

But I'm thrilled CYOA is still open!

Yep, some folks are hesitant to sign up for an empty table, feeling like they might be signing up for a game that isn't going to get enough players to start.

I'd personally be excited to play in all of the games being offered.

Cheat your own adventure filled up.

I think there were enough veteran players wanting to play to open a second table. If I did that, would you guys want the same art/title, or something else whacky?

I got into the Knave scenario! cool

Both my offerings are half full. I could run with what I have, although more would be preferable. I'm especially proud that 3 of the newbies for the initiative are friends I invited, 2 of whom would not be playing if I hadn't.

As of now, out of 24 games, the following are starting, with the number of "new" players, some of which seem a bit suspicious. Counting it up, that would be 90 new to PbF!

Orc in the Well, 1 new
DnD, 5e -- Hourglass Realm, 5 new
DnD, 5e -- Search for Valhallaran's Locket, 5 new
DnD, 5e -- The Broken Seal, 6 new
DnD, 5e -- Vault of the Devourer, 5 new
Cthulhu -- Red Mist, 2 new
Cthulhu -- Dying of St. Margaret's, 6 new
Cat, 4 new,
Knave, 1 new
Fragment, 5 new
DnD, 5e -- The Pudding Faire, 5 new
Pathfinder -- We Be Goblins, 3 new
Melee, 3 new
Pathfinder -- The King's Last Wish, 5 new
DnD, 5e -- Necropolis, 4 new
Dead Planet, 4 new
DnD, 5e -- Lost Mine of Phandelver, 6 new
Cheat Your Own Adventure, 4 new
Star Trek Adventures -- Klingon, 4 new
Mouse Guard, 5 new

Gazetteer, 1 new
Executive Decision, 2 new
Havoc Brigade, 2 new
and Project Ninja Taco Panda has room for 1, looks like everyone is experienced?

Actually, the 2 players that signed up on the 22nd, when experienced players were allowed to grab one seat, have played in PbF games before. Both of them came about during last year's Initiative.

One of those backed out.

Plus, in general, aren't those players allowed 2 games each?

As of the 22nd new players could sign up for a second game and experienced PbF players could grab one seat. On the 25th anyone can grab any seats that are left with no limits.
