Game Weekend

A typical game weekend might go something like this:

  • Friday evening, say 8pm–midnight: Possible side session
  • Saturday morning, say 10am–12n: Probable side session(s)
  • Saturday midday, 12n-1pm: Lunch break. Bring money if you want to order in.
  • Saturday afternoon, say 1pm–4pm: Likely side session(s)
  • Saturday afternoon, 4–5pm: Dinner break. Again, bring money.
  • Saturday evening, 5–6pm: Check-in, collect game fees, distribute character envelopes, etc.
  • Saturday night, 6–11pm: Main Salon session. Limited refreshments will be provided.
  • Saturday night, 11pm-12m: Checkout, wrap-up, submit between time actions


Extra-curricular gatherings: There are a large number of fabulous restaurants and bars in the area. We highly encourage players to gather socially before and after game times, and we may or may not join you. But due to the large numbers of players and varied interests, the GMs will not be organizing such things ourselves. We will let those with more bandwidth handle that.
