Run out the Guns at Origins 2000
Steve Hess here, once again soliciting for GMs for RUN OUT THE GUNS at
Origins 2000 in Columbus, Ohio, July 13th-16th!
Last year's event, organized at the very last minute and lacking even the
slightest mention in the onsite program, attracted more than sixty players.
This coming July, with full write-ups in both the prereg and the onsite
books, we'd like to run 4 to 6 tables with 6 to 8 players at each table in
each of our time slots...and we'll get the players if we have the GMs to
We are planning on running 2 slots per day, at 10 AM and 7 PM (or the
nearest WotC-approved times) Thursday through Saturday with a 10 AM final on
Sunday to end at 3 PM at the latest. This way, we all have our afternoons
free for other games and browsing in the exhibit hall.
We're open to constructive suggestions on this and all other topics, of
Just like last year, I will serve as master GM, running my own table and
keeping the metaplot moving. This year's metaplot will center on the rich
sugar-producing island of St. Lucia, which changed hands 14 times between
the French and the English between 1660 and 1814. In the mid-1660's, the
French lost control to the English but both nations struggled with a large
and very determined native Caribe population. How much loot is there to be
siezed in the midst of an invasion? Only your players will know for sure!
Of course, like last year, GMs will be provided with background data, a full
portfolio of photocopies, and tons of research. All a GM will have to do is
show up, distribute characters and backgrounds, and go to sea! And
naturally, we'll be incorporating all the new information from ALL HANDS ON
DECK into our GM packs. I promise to arm and armor you against the storm:
All you need do is weather it.
If you're interested, please reply to firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as you
can. We must commit ourselves to a number of tables and players to be
served by the January submission deadline for the prereg book!
Thanks for your time and your continuing efforts!
