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 to register (and let us know what sorts of roles you prefer!), or if you have questions about NPCing. A basic guide to NPCing Madrigal may be found online.
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.

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.
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:
Aralis The Calling The Isles Lost Eidolons Madrigal Pirate Island 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!
Please note service times may be changed as needed. Prices and offerings may change. If they do this will be posted. Pre pay links will be set up in a few weeks. Please address any dietary concerns to me through e-mail or PM.

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!
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...
