    But yus, barring things I should be going to Leicester with some form of cooked food. Christmas cookies perhaps? With cinnaminamon and raisins?
    Or perhaps some coconut and chocolate cookies?
    Sausage rolls? Spinach and cheese rolls?
    Mayhap something with chicken?

    But things cover many a category. Eh, if worst comes to worst I'll pass the weekend off as Networking if parents wish to enquire.

    Just got to find her sheet and update it, it's got loads of scribbles on it after . . . oh my, four years or so of games.

    Yes, this is me saying I'm in, providing work (if I ever get any >.>) lets me off, which it should as it's a pre-arranged holiday or something like that.
    Excellent - another player enmeshed in my evil plots.


    re: Sorrel in Scarlet. Or possibly Scarlet in Sorrel: so that's what that facebook message was about. Put me down as tentatively interested, although really the amazon synopsis isn't very good at all. (Someone should change that)

    Writing the synopsis was probably the single hardest task - I went through about six drafts, and I'm still not happy with what I've got. Advice and suggestions would be really, really appreciated! (Not sure if they belong in this thread or in the Marketing a Kindle Novel thread, but so what?).

    I'm pretty sure that most of the generic d6 system materials are available free (and legitimately) on t'internet, so you might be able to familiarise yourself with the system in advance.

    From what I've seen, it's fairly standard -- you have attributes, skills, advantages, disadvantages, and equipment. Advantages and disadvantages work almost exactly how you might expect. The GM decides whether you want to use hit points, wound levels, or both.

    Most stats are expressed as die codes -- when you test one, you roll its die code and compare the result to a target number. Every time you make a dice roll, one of the dice is rolled separately and determines whether things blow up pleasingly, in your face, or not at all.

    All the important information is on your character sheet. You roll xd6, and then Lensman tells you if it was a good roll or a bad roll. Once every session you can blow a force point meaning you get 2xd6 for that one roll.

    That's all I know about the mechanics of the game and it seems to work well enough for me.

    Ku is helping me find the rules for it, so depending on player space, I might be interested in joining. =)

    EDIT: Does buying a copy of Sorrel In Scarlet add +1 to my dice rolls? =P

    OK, so as previously stated, I would rather like to be in the next Star Wars session if both Curly and Grlump are, since I'd quite like to see the outcome of Koorly's plan to castrate Amasa for his treachery. Otherwise, I don't mind sitting out to let someone else have a go, since it seems quite a few have expressed interest.

    Actually, that's pretty much all I know about the mechanics, too... And yes, it is the old West End system. I'll sort out a character sheet for you.

    So that's the Succubus and Thufir for Star Wars, too. Ummm. Looking rather full - not sure there is room for anyone else. Of course, Amasa may not be in any fit shape to do much if Koorly gets him... (Remind me I ought to put a Bacta tank in the scenario somewhere).

    Usually, if you're burning a Force Point, it's a critical moment in the scenario. If you do get all "1"s it is not a pretty sight... (And yes, I've seen it happen. Once. That character won't have to worry about blowing rolls again. Ever.)

    I can be graphic. I've been working it out. I have my knife, rope and a lot of medipacks to make sure he doesn't die of blood loss.

    You do realise this means Archie technically knows more about the mechanics (particularly the weapons/explosive side of things) than you?
    This could be a problem.

    Do tell.
    And castrating a traitor on his last chance is critical to the scenario.

    That's what I thought- at least give me a chance to come up with fluff on the fly about Ithorian Castrati singers who can sing Soprano and Descant at the same time before you do anything permanent... just for the psychological warfare value...

    Huh?
    Sounds interesting. Give me a few Ithorians and I can have my own ominous choir following me to provide appropriate music for when I get slightly more diabolical than normal.

    But where does the flavour text come from?! Besides, I have the worrying thought that just letting me loose on everyone in the game would amount to something verging on torture porn.
    (Yes, I've worked out future characterisation based upon my recent bout of insanity. That betrayal by Amasa will have Consequences.)

    Sausage rolls, unsausage rolls, cinnaminaminamon and raisin cookies, normal cookies, coconut and chocolate cookies (so you're not allergic to coconut then?), and maybe something liked spicy breaded chicken strips?
    Maybe garlic chicken strips?

    I don't know.
    People can make suggestions, I can dick around in the kitchen and see what I can do?

    Garlic chicken - definitely.

    Sausage rolls - ditto.

    Coconut and chocolate - no problem. (Coconut, despite the name, is not a nut in the meaning of the term as far as my allergic reaction is concerned).

    As to the other suggestion - I approve wholeheartedly. It's sinful. (Ducks hastily).

    No allergies or dietary restrictions whatsoever for us. Oh, and it should be Snow Leopard, but I personally kind of prefer Cream

    re: baking: I should be able to do some cooking this year!
    Uhmmm..... I could maybe whip up a cake. No promises, but I'll try to bake it if I can. Or maybe a savoury snack.... choices, choices....

    EDIT @ Lensman: would almonds be all right? (I suppose no, but just to check)

    Just had a quick look-see at a few garlic chicken recipes, and yeah, easy enough to do. Good thing chicken lasts three to four days isn't it?

    Good to know about the coconut, I have some nut allergic friends who also can't eat coconut (okay, just two, but still) so I like making sure.

    My mind's blanked out on the other suggestion, so I can't smack you over the head though. Lucky.

    Oh. How about bacon sausages? If they'll last the journey.

    Concerning the book: post has been made in appropriate thread.

    Excellent! S'always good to know. Uni makes for odd acquaintances, so I became especially concerned about dietary requirements/restrictions/preferences after my first month or so.
    Didn't even know you could get kosher sweets, but you can, and for especially orthodox Jews they're a must. So yeah.

    Cake is good!
    See, I have to travel hundreds of miles and many hours, so I make lots of small bite-size things that fit into boxes easily.
    Then I fill an entire bag-for-life full of boxes of cookies and muffins and things.

    Well, I did that for Christmas two years ago. Mostly it's just a box or two of cookies and things.

    Hey! Just realised no one's been asking for muffins lately.

    ALSO: Strawberries: if you do bake a cake bring a knife. EVERY SINGLE TIME someone's made a cake or just bought a cake we never had any knives to cut the cake.
    Chocolate cake is always a good basic one everyone likes. Or a sponge cake.

    Anyone think that Curly's insanity might have been manufactured by Imperial Intelligence? Lusankya went in for that sort of thing sometimes as I recall...

    If her BDSM methodology with explosive collars is also the result of Imperial Intelligence, it raises rather dubious questions about the Empire's morality.

    To be honest, explosive collars are a little crude for them really- they prefer to place bombs inside people

    Don't you mean Ysanne Isard aboard the Lusankya? Or that's how I'm reading the articles.

    Also slightly concerned with the fact that I kind of, maybe admire Isard a bit? And slightly worried considering that little letter-thing quoted at the top of her article sounds more than a bit like it could apply to a certain Rebel Senator . . .

    Eerie.

    As opposed to everything else the Empire does?

    Which isn't crude?
    I mean, you just lost yourself a potential sleeper agent/spy; there are far more subtle ways to go about killing people.

    Not just Iceheart, but she's the main ringleader... to be honest I wasn't thinking so much the bombs in people's heads as much as creating brainwashed murder-puppets...

    Are there still free spaces in the Star Wars game? I had great fun with the mercenary I played last time.
