Our Last, Best Hope.

Calling all GMs from the lost North Star mission. What if we were to offer to coordinate an online convention for you all?

This would probably take the form of a Google Docs sheet where GMs sign up and offer games as usual. We would coordinate the platforms offered and managing players into the games.

A virtual North Star, as it were, over the weekend originally planned? Let me know below...

Yes, I'd be interested.
I'm not an expert at running games online, but I've done Dr Who and Vampire over Google Hangouts. I suspect I will, however, be getting lots of online game practice in the next couple of months...
Quite so, I'm looking at VTT options right now. Roll20 is perhaps the obvious one but there are some really nice other ones about or there abouts.

Bloody Discord wants me to "claim the account" but keeps telling me "Email is already registered". How do I convince it to link this server to my Discord account???

Okay. We're going to programme in a jump route.

Our Last Best Hope (North Star Online) will be held virtually over the weekend of 30th and 31st May 2020. The North Star team will act to coordinate the setting up of a timetable and play groups.

There will be no registration fee.
Due to the lack of an ability to safeguard effectively, 18+ aged players only.
GM's will be able to offer games from this weekend once I've built that part of the spreadsheet. I intend to offer scenario allocation the same as North Star does usually.

Please sign up to show your interest here: Registration now closed due to demand

More coming this weekend.

Calibrating navigation computers, feeding data from the dodgy star maps acquired from the less than stellar dealer in the decrepit cantina at the edge of the galaxy.

Try wiping browser history including cached passwords, or if you don't want that just switch browsers to one you haven't used with discord before. I've seen this problem before and both the above solutions work. Obviously at some point you'll have used Chrome Firefox, IE and Edge with Discord and switching browsers will no longer be an option, but it works the first few times :)

Registration is now on hold as we have 40 signed up and we need to balance attendees vs games. There are 7 slots available for GMs which we need filled.

We may reopen the registration once we have allocated initial games if there are spaces.

GMs - please step up and fill those slots!
