Just a follow-up:

Very spotty gaming attendance.

Friday Night:
- Erik got 1 player for his Heroquest Game.  Did not run.
- Mark played Capes for 90 minutes with some folks waiting to go to another event

Saturday-Day
- DaveL Runs "Fire over Omac" for Burning Empires and Mark and Erik join him.  Fun.
- Erik (after a run of Robo Rally) finally gets to play his Heroquest/Transhuman Space zombies in space game.  He confuses task resolution with conflict resolution and ends up doing a lot of repeated rolls instead of quick scene resolution.  A flashback s

[continued after crash]

scene gets botched and the players end up getting bonuses for dealing with a NPC that they met during the intro scene but who disappears afterwards. 

Saturday:
Frag for Deadlands and Once Upon a Time fill up a few hours of gaming fun.

I am thinking that we will simply come in as a team.  Players can sign up for which game will be run.  The GM for that GAme runs the scenario and 2 of us act as players to ensure that quorum is made.  If more than 3 players show up, the IndieRPG Toronto folks can drop out and play card games.
