I'm free any weekend in both May and June :)

Anyone else got any feelings about dates in May or June? (Which is only 2/3 months off now).

If no-one has anything to say, I may just take an executive decision and see if Dark Sphere has any tables free for the 20th May (not sure, as they list a Magic event on that day), which would be one of the easiest days for me to run an IRE playtest.

(I could run the IRE play-test at WHW if people *really* want, but it'd mean I had to get out of bed more than three hours earlier, which isn't ideal when it's me teaching/reviewing the rules).

Dark sphere is only an hour and change away from me so it's not too bad.
I'd prefer a sunday though where possible. But if it has to be a saturday. Then i can't currently remember anything important on that date.

The problem there is that Dark Sphere's Sunday opening times are an hour shorter on each end than their Saturday hours (12-5, rather than 11-6), unless you pay for the privilege of them staying open longer. That heavily restricts how much can be got through in a day.

After a bit of procrastination (entirely on my part, not theirs), I've finally got in contact with Dark Sphere, and they've confirmed they still have some tables available on Saturday May 20th. As such, I'm announcing an IRE playtest day.

Exact details will be forthcoming - I'm not yet certain whether the day will take the normal narrative format or be handled as stand-alone scenarios.
Given that IRE is an experimental ruleset that will take getting used to and will have some kinks, games may take a little longer to run. (Although in the long run I hope that it will streamline a few of the clunkier parts of Inquisitor).

Can people please get back to me as soon as possible so I can confirm numbers and get things booked in properly?

I should be free on the 20th May. So count me in.

Well, the response so far is hardly a resounding vote of confidence. I suppose I don't need many people, but I do have a back-up plan.

If there's people who just want a game day rather than worrying about any of the new-fangled IRE nonsense, I'm content to set it up as a conventional three game narrative day; I can run any games I am GMing as IRE rules, but any other tables will be free to run with LRB rules.

If we do it that way, anyone who's wary of IRE can just avoid the games I'm running for the day.

(This is arguably easier for me, as it will let me focus on running one game rather than having to tutor several).
