Pfft, what, have a character with split personalities and a different person plays each personality? Each session the active personality is just whoever was available. :p

Anyway, weekend times available... Uh, lessee, I sleep between... Then to GMT it's... Midnight to 2pm? That's aroundabout the full time that I'm reliably available, though the later it gets the more likely I am to have to leave because of exhaustion.

Well, I'll also be starting classes again soon, so there's no knowing how my sleep schedule will implode after that.
My game:
Hunters of Letrua; Character list
Also Player / Monster stats, skill lists.

My characters:
Tugs Tails, the goblin that was sort of a trapper and wears a bear's tail at his neck, for some reason - Lair of the Mountain King (Run by Thinks)
Alex Sparo, A city boy, poor of sight, who has learned to manipulate people and make the most of what he, and others, have - Trinity Isles (Run by Mort)
Mehriv Turajin, a Noble Dragonborn Sorcerer sent from his clan because he wasn't dragony enough. - The Wandering Archipelago (Run by Thinks)

I kind of don't want to tell, since I think it would be a neat surprise for the first time players... But I guess I can't exactly say how it works without revealing it, so... Spoiler time :P

That sounds super cool!!! Is be up for that, and I'm on est, so... Could start at 2pm GMT at the earliest and play for a few hours (3-5 at a time?). I love the premise and it's one I've wanted to try myself for a while but didn't know how to pull it off...

Know what, once I'm home later today I'll put up a proper introduction post in recruitment if I get the chance, and we can see if we can get this properly arranged... Or if timezones are going to ruin everything :P

I would potentially be up for your game Mort but time is the issue.

Yeah, working on a thread in recruitment right now, and I'm thinking of using some kind of online utility to mark when people would be available..? Anyone got a suggestion for one to use that'd fit, I know they exist :P

I'm also interested (and my timezone is probably the closest to yours :P ) but I've never used Roll20 before. I'm not even entirely sure what it is used for - is it just maps?

It can also keep your character sheets, roll for you and (voice) chat with each other

The voice chat is sketchy, my game usually runs in discord instead. Everything else is great. Oh and it has sound effects.

Layf ran one for a while until he got too busy with work, think we did discord or Skype for chat, roll20 was indeed sketchy.

It is basically a digital table where you can place maps with dynamic objects and lighting, roll, keep sheets, references, etc.

Dynamic lighting you got to pay for but it really makes dungeons more interesting. If you pay even more you can get visual effects like fireballs.

Ah, didn't know that. I just benefited from whatever he had I guess.

So I created the recruitment thread, which is... Probably a mess given how tired I am right now, but well, here you guys go. :roll:

I can play later than I marked but if that is the start time I can't stay a whole session (gotta sleep)! Start time is a little more flexible as long as I know a few days in advance.

Ah, that's a point to consider. The times I marked are ones that I can play through, rather than just start, since I don't know how long sessions last.

Duly noted, Rodgeir. :)

On first glance, it's looking like late Friday might be the best option after all? Got a bunch of options there, at least... So should probably start arranging characters in the appropriate thread, assuming everyone is willing? :)

... Also I'm not sure if the site did the time conversion automatically, but all those times should be GMT +1. I think so though, given the times Dlover picked. :P
