Remember the old games? Where even Rangers and Guardians didn't exist? Awwww....

Just to make clear: I don't demand to be next or anything. If someone has a hot idea then please step up.

I could certainly throw something together, I'm sure.

But I want to play again first. Eomer, you're welcome to go before me.

I'm game for an old time simple WW game. Does that mean we can pick our town occupations again? :-)

If there is a modding queue I would love to join. I'm not too keen on playing, so if someone needs time to plan and wants to play in the meantime I can jump in whenever. I'll be gone for a couple of days in July but other than that my schedule is fairly open.

Oh, don't tell me that we've all had our fix already.

I am all for Oddwen modding the next one so count me in among the players.

I'd be more keen to play than to mod, but I may have an idea for a small game if other mods need some time.

I'm working full-time at the moment so the deadline will be weird for someone. Something like 10 MT, midnight Eastern, 7am Finlandtime. But I'd be happy to mod if there's still interest.

Thumbs up and even more thumbs up for doing the job of figuring out and posting about the different timezones. Wonderful. Won't certainly sit around for DL (heck, even Nog wouldn't... unless he does it over morning coffee), but anyway, WW is WW, no matter the deadline time. I'd be up for that.

How marvelous! I'm definitely (and perhaps defiantly) in.

How many would be keen on a game once the new year starts? I have an idea I'd like to try depending on the number of interested parties, or I could run a pretty basic game if that better suits people's current tastes. It would be lovely to see the forum alight with suspicion once more.

I think I could play if we start around the new year. I'd love to get back into another game!

Doubt it. School starts the very first Monday of January. If you start just after New Year, that'd be the first week of term.

I was just re-reading some games and thinking, "this might be a bit of fun again."

My problem is I have completely changed from previous years (ack, years...depression ) and I am not really interested in conventional games anymore. It has to have some kind of bang to it to catch my interest, and those can be hard to set up...especially with the comparative stillness that pervades now.

What I really want to do is play in a Dead Thread game, but those are excruciatingly hard to set up because you need a lot of people.

We should start drumming up some players then, because I might have just such a game.

I'll give the rules another mulling over and will get an admin thread up when I get the chance.

I don't know about my WW potential nowadays.
I have a new work assignment with 12 hour shifts and limited computer time, though it's somewhat balanced by more frequent off days. I'm not sure if I'd be able to give a game enough attention.

Many apologies for the radio silence. I had a few personal things come up and didn't want to get things rolling here until I was sure I'd have time.

The admin thread will be up by tomorrow evening at the latest.
