[OT] Madrigal is looking for NPCs!
Madrigal is actively recruiting NPCs for our first "Revel" event of the year, February 12-14. Come to fight, roleplay, and earn more sweet, sweet CP!
Our Monster Camp is a large, heated
building which sleeps 40 - each with a built-in bunk. It also has two large bathrooms with several showers in-house, a large common area, a small kitchen area, and a sweeping back porch which overlooks the lake. Two nearby cabins have also been set aside for additional NPC sleeping space. Saturday night dinner is provided for all NPCs who stay for the majority of the weekend.
We have AMPLE need for both fight-y and roleplay-y peoples, so if you'd like to join in the fun, please email us at madrigalnpc AT accelerantgames DOT com

The forums are being wonky right now, so here is the last update for this weekend's weather.
Well, any good news here? Let's see.NWS Boston Wrote
Today: Partly sunny, with a high near 57. West wind between 3 and 6 mph.
Tonight: Showers likely, mainly after 1am. Cloudy, with a low around 46. South wind around 6 mph. Chance of precipitation is 70%. New rainfall amounts of less than a tenth of an inch possible.
Saturday: Showers, with thunderstorms also possible after 9am. Some of the storms could produce heavy rain. Patchy fog before 9am. High near 66. East wind between 3 and 10 mph. Chance of precipitation is 90%. New rainfall amounts between a half and three quarters of an inch possible.
Saturday Night: Showers likely, mainly before 1am. Cloudy, with a low around 51. South wind at 7 mph becoming west. Chance of precipitation is 70%. New rainfall amounts between a half and three quarters of an inch possible.
Sunday: A chance of showers, mainly before 11am. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 66. North wind between 3 and 7 mph. Chance of precipitation is 30%. New rainfall amounts of less than a tenth of an inch possible.
Sure, it looks to be more of the same from yesterday. There still is a storm system that will spin up through the Great Lakes and will drop a frontal boundry across New England. There are some subtle changes to this weekend's forecast however.
Currently, there is a slug of rain associated with a warm front in Western New York and Pennsylvania. For the most part will pass to our north and west this afternoon. There may be a few showers with it, but we'll be spared the worst of it. After that passes we'll briefly get into the dry sector of the system. The good thing about this front is temperatures should hold steady tonight or even rise towards morning. However, the only ones who will be out will be "team stupid", so let's move on to Saturday.
The widespread rain for Saturday is looking much more scattered on the models than previously thought. So yes, there will be rain around, but the only time it could be heavy is in an isolated thunderstorm that could pop up due to some rather dynamic upper air features. The forecast rain for the course of the day on Saturday is now around only 1 inch.
It also looks like the front will spin towards the Maritimes quicker than yesterday. Most of the rain should shut off sometime Sunday morning, leaving the last fight of the weekend and clean-up mostly dry.
So yeah, another weekend of rain, but at least it looks like it won't be a total washout. So, see everyone there and I promise to be less grumpy about the weather this time around. Current Mood: rainy

Endgame is even now seeking NPCs for our October 2-4 event. We're really looking forward to some great times at this event and would very much like to get as many NPCs as we can! Please remember that we prefer to hear from NPCs ahead of time so that we know how much food to buy for you and whether we can cast you in roleplaying roles. That's right, we shall feed you all weekend, and the cost to NPC an Endgame event is only five dollars to make sure you're insured.
Endgame is a Post-Apocalyptic Heroic Horror game. It takes place in the near future of our modern Earth. History in Endgame Earth is essentially identical to that of the real world, up until May, 2006. During that fateful month, the barriers that kept magic at bay are swept aside, and Earth is invaded by several races of monstrous alien creatures, all hostile to humanity. With the magic, mental arts, and advanced science they brought with them, they swept human defenses aside, killed or enslaved the vast majority of us, and fell to fighting amongst themselves over the ruins of our civilization.
We currently feature CP exchange with the following games:
Secrets of the Mesa
And now 7 Virtues!
Please let us know ASAP if you're planning on coming, so we can have fun stuff for you to do and plenty of food and drink!

At least it won't be windy?

Sunday: A slight chance of showers. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 77. West wind between 5 and 8 mph. Chance of precipitation is 20%.
The forecast may not say it, but there is a chance of a stray shower early tonight as well. A small area of showers not associated with Danny has been trying to work its way into Southern New England and could impact set-up in some way.
Danny is no more organized this morning. In fact he has weakened even more to just barely a tropical storm. However, his movement has increased and models are agreeing he'll be influencing our weather during the day tomorrow. Danny will interact with an area of low pressure over Georgia and the approaching upper level system over the Great Lakes. As his energy merges with these other features, it will become quite the extratropical system, throwing quite a bit of rain across Southern New England.
The rain should start sometime before dawn on Saturday and while it won't be heavy all the time, it should be persistent with possible tropical downpours. We'll be on the western fringes of the heaviest rain, but we should see the forecasted amount of 1-2 inches of rain during the day on Saturday. Models still show the rain tapering off sometime after dark and should be completely over around 11:00pm Saturday night.
Sunday still looks unsettled with scattered showers as the upper level low pulls away.
I would suggest putting at least a couple of the storm windows up on Dave's. That way we can least open a couple windows to let some natural light in on Saturday while still keeping the rain and wind out.
I'll be monitoring the data all day today and if an update is needed, I'll make a note of it at opening. See everyone there later tonight!

It's all over...
Well, after all the hype of a couple of days ago, Danny has become a sheared mess of a system that may not even be totally tropical anymore.
Current thinking is Danny will interact in some way with the approaching frontal boundary. Rain should start falling sometime around dawn on Saturday and persist throughout most of the daylight hours. Rain could be heavy at times, but it shouldn't be a total washout. It should taper off sometime after dark as whatever is left of Danny and the front sweep into the Canadian Maritimes.
Sunday will be unsettled as the upper level low hangs back and throws clouds and showers across the area.
Sorry for any anxiety I may have imposed for the weekend. I only do this as a hobby. There are plenty of pro meteorologists who got Danny wrong too.
We now return you to your normally rainy Temple...
|Wednesday, August 26th, 2009|
Well, I give you Tropical Storm Danny. Currently at 24.9N 70.3W, winds at 45mph and moving WNW at 18. Here is the first "official" image of our weekend party crasher.
Not much to look at as the swirl in the center is exposed, but most storms start out this way. Also, here is the first 5-day track issued by the Hurricane Center.
The center of the cone is a very 1991 Hurricane Bob-like track. Now, the storm could still go anywhere in the cone, so there is much to watch over the next 48 hours.

... for those who don't read the forums.
Well, here we go. Let's first see what the NWS says...

Friday: Mostly sunny, with a high near 69.
Friday Night: A chance of showers. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 50. Chance of precipitation is 30%.
Saturday: A chance of showers. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 68. Chance of precipitation is 40%.

Alright, let's get the easy part of the forecast out of the way. It's an Endgame weekend. It's going to rain.
Now the hard part. As mentioned yesterday, there is a component of this rain that could be associated with a tropical system making its way up the Eastern Seaboard and interacting with another low pressure area coming east out of the Great Lakes. All the models have the tropical feature coming up this way. However, they are split on where it goes. A couple of them have the storm tracking much like Bill did last weekend. This would have a set-up like last weekend. The rain from the front gets hug up over Central New England waiting for the tropical cyclone to pass. This would result in scattered, but persistent showers for much of the weekend. (Peterborough had some bad flooding last Saturday when a cell parked itself over the town and produced about 5 inches of rain in 12 hours.)
However, a couple of the models run the system just inland from the Carolinas to New England. A track like this would produce a tremendous amount of rain for everyone very late Saturday night and all day Sunday. There would be some gusty winds as well when the storm passes over Southern New England. (I won't mention here what happens if it splits the difference and pulls a Gloria or Bob. Really, I won't...)
The trick is, the system hasn't really formed yet. It's still a tropical wave northeast of Puerto Rico. The National Hurricane Center is saying there is a very good chance of it becoming a depression in the next 48 hours and will have a recon plane out there today looking at it. Once the system becomes organized into a depression, the models will get a better handle on where it will go, but now it's pretty much a guessing game.
I sense updates will come more often this week than normal.

Mealtimes Endgame Aug 09
Had a question on meal times, so posting this...
Breakfast on Saturday will be from 9:30 to 10:30. Leftovers may be available after that but I don't promise anything.
Lunch will be served around 1-2ish. This will be decided and announced at the event, but it needs to mesh with plot, so the serving time is flexible right now.
Dinner will be served around 6-7ish. This will also be decided and announced at the event, but it needs to mesh with plot, so the serving time is flexible right now.
Brunch on Sunday will be from 10:00 until it runs out. I've planned Sunday's brunch to be stuff that can stay out with food that needs to stay cold being kept on ice. There will be plenty of food and it shouldn't run out. I can't promise that you will have every item available if you don't get down to eat until after noon, but there should still be food left.
I'll be in the kitchen on Sunday before 10, so if you're there and hungry, I will be happy to get you food. However the commitment is to have it all out and ready to serve by 10.
Menu for Endgame Aug 09
The food has been planned and budgeted and Paypal buttons have been made!
Please go to the website listed at the bottom to pre-pay for your food. The meals are priced individually but there is a reduced rate for buying all the meals at once.
There will be a late night snack on Friday as well as Saturday and also freezy pops during the afternoons. These will all be free of charge.
I strongly encourage everyone to pre-buy food! This way you don't have to worry about carrying money around and I'll have the money to actually buy the food before shopping!
If you will not be able to pre-pay or if you will not be eating these meals, please drop me an e-mail to let me know which meals, if any you will be eating. This will help me ensure we have enough food for everyone. My e-mail is email@example.com.
You can also contact me there if you have any questions about the food or ingredients.
There will be no msg, sesame seeds, fish, shellfish or pork in anything. There will be onions in the veggie chili and the chicken soup only. There will be tomatoes in the veggie chili and available on the side for the salad only. There will be chili powder in both meat and veggie chili only. There will be milk in the marine beef breakfast. There will be milk in the biscuits and bread but dairy free bagels will be available at all times as alternatives. The scrambled eggs and the hard-boiled eggs will contain eggs. Cheese is always served for you to add it yourself. The only nuts will be in the peanut butter. If I have missed an allergy, feel free to ask about it.
I will have the Paypal buttons available until Friday morning. They will be taken down then because I will be headed out to shop and get to the site. If you want to pre-pay after I print up the 'people who have paid' list, I won't have a record of it so the buttons will be down and you will need to pay on site.
Thank you all,
Buttons can be found here:

Just dropping a quick line in LiveJournal land from the player of Nicole Weller. I'm bad about keeping up with LJ, but for some of you, this may be your only way outside of the forums to get in touch with me. So hey, and let the friending begin, I suppose? Current Mood: tired
|Sunday, January 25th, 2009|
This is Mike, but you all know me lovingly as Gilligan ( or Little Cross if you're Abel). Just started using livejournal again and just joined the community and wanted to say hello.
Thats all, just saying hello and looking forward to seeing you all at the revel.

NPCs for the Revel.
Please be advised that Endgame is at capacity for NPC housing for the revel. This does not mean that we don't want to see your awesome selves if you're coming to help out, but it does mean that we cannot offer housing and would recommend seeking alternative arrangements. Thank you!
