Re: F5 - The Refresh Strikes Back

I'm happy to turn around and run another game - it's not really that much effort for me, as long as you're all right with my relatively improv'd flavor-text and full-on vanilla (although I'm ruminating some Everyone's Special-ness). The issue with me running them is that you're bound by my time zon...

Re: TWG CXXVIII - Fancy Game Name

I'm thinking of implementing 24-hour days w/24-hour extension on missed votes. Start date: Day 0 - Tuesday, ...
