I was at a local store yesterday and they told me that not only have the locations been chosen but the day is set for Sept 13th as the day FFG wants the event run.  just thought i would give you guys a heads up.

My store received their kit, without being told they were getting it. 

 

Reading through it, it looks really great.

I know FFG in the original post said that there would be a list of stores holding the event released for everyone by the end of August.

 

I don't think that's going to happen.

Dragon's Lair in Austin got back to me, they are having a WizKids event on Saturday, Sept 13 but they offered to let me run the event on Sunday, Sept 14, so I said sure!

None of my local haunts are running it seems.  :(  I hope that put out the the adventure and NPC's out for sale at some point or I can find it on ebay or something.

Same here. Well, except I can't read it as someone else is GMing it. So I'm hoping to play. :D

Did they get multiple kits?

 

How are they going to manage multiple GMs with only one adventure book?

 

I'm running it at Dragon's Lair, I think I'm the only one. Hopefully people will sign up :)

If I understand correctly it's setup to be run multiple times in one day but not at the same time.

Ah, I see. My original expectation is that we'll get through it all once.

 

The book describes Episode I as taking an estimated time of about an hour and Episodes II to III as taking about three hours. We've got 12pm to 6pm booked for it, and what with explaining the rules and breaking at some points between episodes, that seems reasonable to me.

Yeah my FLGS only got one as well - apparently response was overwhelming (who'da thunk). There's another GM ahead of me signed up to run; if we don't get a lot of interest I hope to still at least play, but if we have a bunch of folks wanting to play I've volunteered to run the Beginner Box instead.

 

As a side note, they called either the FFG wholesalers or FFG directly, I'm not certain which, to see if they were allowed to photocopy the adventure book/ character sheets so we both could run it at once; but they were not sure if/when they'd get a callback on it. It might be an option to keep in mind unless someone In The Know here will chime in to say one way or the other.

After getting familiar with the adventure, I let Dragon's Lair know that I think we could run it twice in 6 hours. I don't think that would be a problem, and otherwise it probably wouldn't go more than 4 hours at the most.

My favorite store in Austin, Dragon's Lair, is hosting a WizKids event that day, so it doesn't look like they're involved. I'll have to try someplace else.


Have you tried Whose Turn Is It Games? DL is much larger, but WTIIG is definitely my favorite store in town.

Unless stated otherwise, these are just my personal opinions about how I feel things should work.  Even if I quote chapter and verse of a particular rulebook, only the part that's quoted is likely to actually be official.  Each GM will have to decide for themselves what rules they will use and which ones they won't, and how they will interpret the rules they do use.  That is their right -- and their responsibility.

I game at Whose Turn on Wednesdays so I thought about asking them, but Dragon's Lair got back to me.

 

I'm running Glare Peak at Dragon's Lair on Sunday, September 14, from 12pm to 6pm. I'll be running it twice if there is enough interest.
