Sorry for the trouble.


How about these (as before, follow the link to get the full resolution):

(Unfortunately, I've got too many games on right now to play myself at the moment.)


Morg didn't mention that being necessary, but I don't have a problem with it. What would that entail?


Nothing much. Just means I'll be keeping an eye on the game adjudications, and that I'm available if you've got a question or a player challenges a ruling, before bothering the main GMs list. (For trickier variants even experienced GMs will often run their adjudication past the 2nd Eyes before posting, but I don't think that's necessary here: you seem to know what you're doing.)

(Also it means in the unlikely event you disappeared I'd pick up the game as GM to prevent it dropping into the abyss.)

The map with the new font is perfect. Not as pretty but very functional. Thanks. I would be interested in giving the game a try.

Ignore me: got a PM from Morg saying you're clear as a GM. :) I'll still be watching the game with interest.

I'd be happy to play.

Thanks for fixing the font. Less pretty, way more functional.

Confirmation requests have been sent out. Anyone out there in the forums that still wants a spot should let me know, as I expect one or more of my original signups may not actually confirm.
