Next weekend!

With less than  a week to go until Hydra, most of you should have your games and characters (if  not character sheets). If you haven't heard anything, please get in touch with your GMs. If you are still looking for transportation, check out the rideshare thread on diatribe. The weather reports aren't all good, so remember to bring warm clothing and bedding.

Good luck with your costuming!

Game allocation

GMs have gotten their player lists; the first batch of completed player game choices have been processed.

If you want to find out which games you are in, login and take at look at your games. You will have ticks next to the games you are in. As always Scott has tried to give everyone as many of their first picks as he could. Where he couldn't (and yes there were some popular games) you will find you only got 1 second choice game.

Scott will email everyone soon (in a few days) with an email about your games and other convention details.

Hopefully you will start hearing from your GMs over the next few weeks and get casting questionnaires and/or other info.

Status update: Game selection

Scott has started looking at allocating players to games, based on the 55 responses we have had so far. This may take some time, but I expect he will be in touch sometime in the near future. If you have yet to choose games, its not too late! It's also not too late to register

67 days until Hydra!

Game selection

Game selection will open on Friday the 23rd of January! It will be a few days before people start being assigned to games, however the sooner you can get your game choices in the better. 

You will also get the chance to specify the one game you don't want to miss out on by assigning it a heart. When it comes to putting people into games, this will be taken into account.   

Here's a preview of the drag and drop game selection interface:
