A 7:30 start works for me, and we can make sure the game doesn't go beyond 10pm. It's absolutely fine with me for you to forward Paul a copy of the rules. In terms of clients, I intend to try out the Tavern's Discord server. I also need to play with that before the time.
Next question: what's the pitch? I need to get Paul organised ASAP - I know what he's like at coming up with character concepts. (From previous games of these these types, he may well go for some kind of magus.)
