As we get further along into this, just a few pointers about getting involved with the games I run:

1.  Sign up here at the forums and introduce yourself.  One of the great joys of this has been meeting new people.  It also gives us a slight assurance that you're not a reprobate.  Re: excluding reprobates, Doug and I are grand-fathered.

2:  Friend me on Steam.  I am "Cyrano" there along with a billion others, but I use the same avatar there as I do here.  Or you could look in the Armchair Dragoons Steam group.

3:  You don't need a flame-throwing computer to run these games, but it's got to be mid-range.  Also, your connection is as if not more important.

4:  Headset and microphone, please.  We use Steam chat for voice and it works well.  Better than TTS itself some nights.   If you've got that echo thing going on, we'll as you to "push-to-talk" to prevent everybody from going buggy.

5.  On game nights, usually 1800-1900 Wednesday and Saturday I will look about and see who is present.  If there are slots available, I will invite you.  I always feel dreadful if I don't tap people on the shoulder and offer.

6.  Once in game, if you haven't, turn your lift height to the minimum.  This is the little weight-lifter dude at the top right of your screen.

7.  There is no note #7.

8.  Be excellent to each other.

Phew, I'm glad you threw in that grandfathering thing...


I actually don't really like games.

I always enjoy watching / listening to the games although its after the event due to the damn time-zone wozname :-(

Its great to see that there is now a means that allows multiple people to enjoy gaming together live on-line. Hats off especially to Jim who has put so much effort into make this possible, and the unflagging enthusiasm that goes with it.  :2thumbs:

It's not like you couldn't take a couple of naps on Saturday and sleep in on Sunday so you could join us.   :whistle:

A small clarification of Note 8: enjoying a drink while playing is fine. Becoming too impaired to remember rules and play reasonably is not.

They'll need to add staff.

Couldn't have said it better.
