Hi,

I appreciate we are under level, Dave seemed accepting and happy about this, This is only my 2nd time at the caves (after a 25 year break!) so I really wanted another go at playing. Obviously it's disappointing for me that the pre 8th is likely to be cancelled, although there are more players booked on that then either of the other dungeons.

I also travel up from Southampton, so, when I'm still very new and keen on playing my characters, it is a long way to come to monster at this early stage. And i don't think i would do it justice.

Thanks

Good Morning

After reading the previous comments about the 3k and low point players I want to let you guys know that if the pre-8th doesnt run then I wont be booking onto the guild special / 3k dungeons.

I dont want to force out higher level players and dont feel, being a returning player, that I will do justice to the 3k's by monstering.

Just wanted to let you know so you dont expect me down to play/monster on the 3k's.

Cheers

Steve

I think you have got the wrong end of the stick. I wasn't say that either of you should, everyone has the right to play, but there is s likely hood that should the worst happen, there will likely be a request for people to book off and crew, or no one gets to play at all.

Many of us have often found ourselves in this situation and honestly crewing is often a fun experience in itself, you get to mess around with other aspects of the system that you wouldn't normally try and may in fact enjoy enough to want to make a character from.

Dave is a good multi tier ref having often run excellent events to cater to all levels of play. This extends to the crew side, you wouldn't have much better a start to crew such an event. and truly I wasn't saying, if your low level you should crew, I was just suggesting that if you feel you would be out of your depth playing that monstering was an option.
Steve I hope I read your post wrong but stamping your feet and saying "if I can't play I won't come" isn't conductive to the club as a community. But the very real fact is that if no one offers up then straws would be drawn to see who crews, but it very rarely comes to that as people such as Ed, Stacy and myself often step up. But in this case Ed has done this a couple of weeks in a row, so I was asking if anyone who offer pre hand so that he doesn't get the chance to sacrifice himself again.

But who knows, we may get down the caves and some people may surprise us, it happened the other week to me when I was reffing with no crew, but if you choose to not come then you'll never know either way.

The point i was trying to make is that I havent played for 20+ years, and i want to play, at this very early stage of returning (my 2nd event) RATHER than monster. Your post read, to me, that the higher point dungeons are more important than the pre 8th. Dave seemed happy, so your post surprised me to be honest. As i mentioned, the pre 8th had the most players anyway, but that is the one that has to book off?

If pre 8ths dont run we NEVER get to play on the higher points. Sure, i can drive 300+ miles on my 2nd visit and monster and get some points, but have to be 8th to apply them? I only had the opportunity to play a 8th with some points as i made a gold cave fund donation, because i enjoyed my 1st returning session so much, although i think this may have been premature.

It isn't like i would never have the intention to monster, far from it, but it's my 2nd visit down, there is very few pre 8ths on the diary, and it seems very few sign ups for those that are there, so any opportunity to play is welcomed. That is also why I would like to play rather than monster.

As one of the low end of the system referees, I agree with you 100% and it's great that you are returning after so long. My post, as I said, wasn't to make you monster, it was to offer those who were concerned that it was "suicide" or "viable" to play on an unbalanced dungeon, an alternative to playing if the concern was that you would just die all the time. Dave of course was happy to run what was needed, it's what we ref's do, we are here to make the players happy. However I'd hate to have what happened to me a few weeks back, to happen to Dave when it can be prevented, I solo crewed a dungeon (Ref/Aref/Monstered) and while the players were great about it, it was exhausting, but I did it because the players on the dungeon were people who crew ALL the time and deserved to get to play.

Pre 8ths are booked often, and fill up often, but this is a bad time of year, with summer fests and Exams going on, people aren't at the caves and we have to work together to get dungeons working. And yes that may mean someone who makes a 104 mile journey to the caves and the same amount back may sometimes be requested to crew, but that is all, a request. Never will anyone make you do something, but we may ask. But if you look at the benefits rather than the negatives, you may see that it might be worth doing:
Monster points on your character (character advancement without the threat of loss of vitea smile.gif )
Credits to pay with next time
Getting to experience a side of the game you might not try because you don't want to waste your money on a character that you're not sure about
Helping the club community
And more

many other systems will make you crew regardless of where you come from and you don't even get half of that list.

And this is where we all stand, we all would love to play everytime, some of us also come from far away. But someone has to crew or noone plays. But don't think I'm saying YOU HAVE TOO!!!!! I was simply suggesting that if you are concerned about the dungeon you would be playing, that crewing was an alternative option that people would love you for. Sorry that you read the wrong tone into my post, I just want the best for everyone involved and there are a couple of people in this group of people on saturday, who have given more than their share.

Okay.

In order to clarify things.

I will be reffing a max 3k on sat.

There will be a seperate brief for Top Secret.

Monsters will be volunteers only.

I am happy to run solo if I have to.

Due to the nature of solo run events being prop/setting heavy I will probably be timing in a little late

Noone should feel out of their depth either monsters or players. (But regard my post re. Choosing the right moments)

If people who decide they would like to play please post class/points and if Top Secret or not. (If your not getting their brief might ruin the fun...)

I would be playing Dipp, that is unless there are no monsters, in which case I will likely swap over.

Hi Dave.

I was due to play the pre 8th but will monster for you instead if thats okay ?

I've booked off the pre 8th and will book onto this instead.

I am relatively new (returned about six months ago) and I still do not know all the classes yet but happy to step up and play the trash ;-)

Otherwise, wack me a PM on whats playing monster wise and I will read up on the spells and abilities etc

Edd and Stacey frequently monster and its the least I can do (I know others do, but I dont know you all yet) - I look forward to watching Edd in his armour on those hills in Perth-y-Pia even though he is a machine with weird ant like superhuman strength and stamina and I am guessing he would like the points wink.gif

No problem James.

TBH most of the stats are neither here nor there .. the key thing for my dungeons is roleplay... I can give you a rough breakdown of abilities, and write verbal sheets next to parts if you'd like.

But it's more about the talking to and making the players care about the npc they are butchering .... either not wanting to kill them or just really wanting to be rid of them!!! Both work !!

I'm a bit bogged down at work but if you PM me an email address I can send over a copy of the dungeon in advance for you to read - probably tomorrow night/Friday - that way you have an idea of the plot and can ask any questions in the morning.

Speaking of which - I aim to be there for 9 and will likely do a bit of setting and then a walk around - (basically walking the route through the caves that I 'think' the party will take explaining what is going to be where) - I would recommend coming down in time for that if you can as it does make the day easier knowing what you are going to do and where in advance...


Dave

PS Jules - you're call but if you are going for Dipp can you confirm by Friday as don't want to give you the wrong brief wink.gif
