Johnny of Greensboro's Curse of Strahd

Email Before 27th Game

Hey Lost Souls,

The sad saga continues on Friday. Hopefully, the Lost Souls can turn things around.

I posted my perspective at OP. Not much XP, sadly.

Justin, you can either play a resurrected (thanks to the Morning Lord) Allewyn (with a badly burned scar) or roll up a new character (remember to use the 27-point buy). Let me know if you have any questions.

Everyone, see you at 6:30. Don’t be late, so we can play longer.

Johnny

Hey Lost Souls,

Don’t forget that we’re gaming tomorrow. We start at 6:30. Be on time. It’s precious! We aren’t meeting as much for a while. I’ll try to make it to midnight.

Level up to 7! Send my a copy of your new character sheet. We’ll roll hit points at the table.

See ya tomorrow,

Email Before 24th Game Part 5

Hello Lost Souls,

I’ve heard back from most of you. Let’s go ahead and confirm these dates:

October 20, November 4 (Saturday Fall Festival), November 17, December 15

The reduced game dates are because the only times that Joel and Brian can play at the same time is the 3rd Friday of the month, but it looks like we can reset this in December. Also, Brian works the 2nd and 4th Saturdays, so we can’t play on those Saturdays.

Because of the long wait, go ahead and level your characters. Cool, huh! And email them to me! Before the 20th!

Thanks,

Johnny

Email Before 24th Game Part 4

Hey Lost Souls,

Thanks for getting back with me in a timely manner.

Here is my proposal for the next four game dates:

October 20, November 4 (Saturday Fall Festival), November 17, December 15

I think they will fit in with Joel’s and Brian’s schedules. Their schedules make it incredibly difficult to get them both to play at the same time. I prefer to have them both there at the game table.

I’m willing to listen to counter proposals.

Everyone, please check your calendars, and get back with me ASAP. Then, I can confirm these dates.

Thanks,

Johnny

Email Before 24th Game Part 3

Hey Lost Souls,

We will ‘not’ be playing this Friday, because Joel cannot make it.

Typically, we play every other Friday, but September had five Fridays. Joel cannot play on the first Friday of the month. Therefore, we sometimes skip a Friday.

Having said that, the skip causes a wrinkle, because Brian can only play every other Friday due to his work schedule. If we skip this Friday, then play the next Friday, Brian cannot make it. In fact, he wouldn’t be able to play with us again until December (it has five Fridays).

Therefore, I propose that we play the 2nd Saturday and the 3rd Friday of the month. For a while, anyway. We can reset our schedules in December (it has five Fridays) and get back to two Fridays a month.

Please let me know if you can play the 2nd Saturday and the 3rd Friday of October and November. ASAP. Everyone needs to respond to me, so that we can make a prompt and agreeable decision.

Thanks for your understanding,

Johnny

View
Email Before 24th Game Part 2

Hey Lost Souls,

This Friday (the 6th) is the first Friday of the month. Therefore, Joel is not able to play. So, the next game would actually be the 13th.

However, I do understand that this may cause a wrinkle in Brian’s schedule, because he works every other Friday. Can you tell me your schedule for this month, Brian?

Hopefully, we can work something out where everyone can be at the table.

Concerning our Fall Festival date, Harold and Joel can make it, but I haven’t heard from the rest of you.

Let me know,

Johnny
