Re: Mongoose Infantry and RPGs

I see the economic reasons behind this but the news is very disappointing. Complete removal of support seems too absolute. Perhaps a change in reward to a simple much lower cost per game discount voucher (5 per game)would be much more economical but as you said all options were considered. Solomani ...

Priority will be given to those willing to run a game in one or more slots, as one of the attendees was a referee and we have gaps in the schedule t...

The scenario you advise is a con scenario and has never been published officially by BITS UK Ltd.

It is a hostage rescue scenario and is rather fun, having GM'ed it many times as a BITS Demo GM.

I will enquire with our Commander in Chief if we have plans to issue it.

Orange Safeguard is the anti porn filter to stop U18's getting corrupted.

Sadly it stops so many other sites. UK Roleplayers for awhile was also blocked.

Call Orange Customer Services from your handset and they will turn it off.

Conpulsion 2010 is 27th to 28th March 2010

Website here: http://www.geas.org.uk/conpulsion/

Would an Easyjet flight from Luton/Stansted be easier though of course never cheaper than the coach?

Unlikely my carcass won't be there this year as Conpulsion clashes with 2 other cons.

It was great to meet some faces and put them to names/aliases and handles. For those of you who played Strontium Dog thanks to Tentacles Tim, Chirps (who I will now have nightmares about after those sound effects), Digby Jones III, Cat Stevens, Stone Face Stevens and Chins McGowan.

My understanding

Will it be first-come-first-served? Do you expect only one session to be played for each of the scenarios? My understanding, as I am running 2 of the scenarios (Masks and Strontium Dogs) is that each one will run once though the skirmish games may have multiple sessions. I have never attended an Op...

I have ran Traveller with BE as a one off but no notes on it.

It would be nice for Mongoose to get a signature artist in to develop the OTU look but that probably does not fit in with the whole "generic" thing they are prostituting.

Gotta say this was an excellent con and my first year there. We ran four tables of Mongoose Traveller and they all worked well. Plenty of varied stuff to do/see/play and help was always on hand. Having the red dalek chase me because I was ginger haired was rather disturbing though. I can only ask th...
