Hi all, this is a thread for us to introduce ourselves and discuss how this is all going to work. More tonight.

So... My name is John and I will be your moderator for this game :D

I have a confession to make. I bought Android for the purpose of playing it online but never got around to it (and I bought it about 5 years ago now). So let's see if we can make this work.

I have been running a RPG on this site for about 12 months now, so I am very familiar with how it runs - feel free to ask any questions you feel like.

Oh, and give me your opinions on the proof of concept boards as well thanks. Why are they appearing so small? Are they loading quick enough?

Hi
My name is Matthias. I've played Android once using my own copy of the game. I enjoyed the experience but it's hard to find some players for a long game like this.
What's the best way to go for playing Android with RPoL? Do I set up my physical copy and replay the RPoL turns there?

As a player I don't think you need to set the board up, you just need your cards: i.e. Plot, your character light cards and other players dark cards that you have in your hand, somewhere nearby. Using the electronic board will work well enough for keeping track of players.

My name is Carl. I have played Android on my copy once or twice, but it has been a few years because the time commitment is a challenge with small kids in the picture.

I am going to poke around this site for a bit before the game starts to see if I have subscription options, or if I need to log on frequently to check the game state. If there is a primer on the features of the site, can someone please post a link to it to help everyone get set up?

In reply to Turambur (msg # 5):

Hi Carl. Click on the 'help' link in the top right hand corner, but you can just ask me if you like, that might be easier.

Nope, there isn't email notification of new posts, although you could set up RSS feed notification if you really wanted to. Just log in once a day and check, that adequate for the speed this game will move at.

Oh, and welcome Matthias and Carl!

So 'Turambur', you get first choice of character. Who do you want to play?

We now have four players signed up, including Matthias who has indicated that he wants to be a lurker. I think three players is a good idea. This will keep the game time down to a quick nine months :D :P

I will start with Rachael. I haven't had the chance to play her yet, and am eager to explore the moon.

Also, I did find a way to get email notices. It is under the "User Preferences" link at the top of the page, and works very similarly to BGG's subscriptions.

Hello, Mike here.  I am SirWashington on bgg.  I have multiple personality order on the internet, which is not a disorder these days. :)

I am fine with either Floyd or Caprice.  If you want me to choose, i will go floyd.

Looking forward to the game!  It seems i will have to break out my game to plan moves etc.  That will be ok, just means i won't be able to really make any progress on turns until i get home every evening.  But still looking forward to the game!!!
