The new Ambercon North web page has been updated, and both registration and game submission are now open. I know I’m planning on heading up to Toronto again this year, and I’ll be hoping to see a lot of you there.

: 8:02 pm: Playing

There’s a thread over at The Masters’ Council called “It’s not easy being green”, which talks about some of the problems new players can have when joining an existing campaign, and what can be done to help them not feel somehow left out because of the experience the other players have with the game.

It’s a topic that normally wouldn’t resonate with me, as I’ve rarely been in the position of that new player (or the GM who was trying to integrate them into a game), but this time it caused me to realize that the problems being discussed were the same ones I’ve been dealing with in a PBEM that I joined back in March.
