    As the warden says ... "What we have heyah ... is faihl--yure to communicate"

    R1 must have missed my off line IMs to him, and probably did not have a chance to see all the sign ups. He sent me a PM that his internet service is having problems, and he is not getting consistent connections.

    I've sent him a PM and new IMs about the GK-Xteam merger. Hopefully there is still room for one more ... leif?

    Alan,

    When do you plan to open team Threads so we can discuss the starting location. Due to a shorter game time this might be useful. Are you waiting for teams to be fully allocated?

    I think you should amalgamate Fifth Element and T'dr'duzk (Fifth Elephant has a good ring), and just put the free transfers to the slightly short teams.

    The teams shouldn't start discussing strategy while (a) their members might get reallocated, or (b) before all their members are known, so I won't open team threads until we've assigned everyone.

    If you feel the game time is too short, we can review it. SGOTM 11 was played for four months. I thought three months might be preferred this time to avoid the Christmas holiday period. But we could change to a four month deadline if you prefer.

    That makes four teams of six, which may be a little light. Another option is to merge each of the groups/teams of three with each of the teams of five, making three more viable teams of eight. However, it is still six days to the 13th, which was the date I asked players to sign up by, and people may still be drifting back from vacations.

    I thought I wouldn't have much time, but these games are more fun than individual play and the scenario looks interesting.

    1) Not sure what team (was on Gypsy Kings), I'm okay joining another team since Gypsy Kings seem to have merged with Xteam and they already have quite a big team.
    1) One Short Straw
    2) yes played before
    3) Immortal

    The scenario looks incredibly interesting, and I am in school and might not have the most time all things considered but I figure I'll try to sign up, follow along at least. (edit: one other comment on timetables - I am actually happy with a quicker timetable. I see no reason it isn't doable, and last time for me and some others the longer time became a problem, since we had folks on vacation and skipped turns and so on and for like a month we barely played any turnsets after going strong at the start, and then some folks like me didn't catch back up. But then again other teams and players may have serious ideas or inputs on timetable, just my own thoughts and I plan to be better personally this time) So:

    T'dr'duzk b'hazg t't again is great if they'll have me, even read some Discworld now :)D but angry I can't really find much more in any libraries I've been going to) I'll try to be consistent in what I can and intend to do at least. Happy to contribute to another group if that works out better for signups though
    Plenty of GOTM, only the past SGOTM though

    Who Dat and Fifth Element are tentatively merging for SGOTM12. Just need to make sure everyone is onboard from the two teams ...
