Hello Everyone,

Well, Historicon is history (so to speak), and we wanted to give an update and also distribute a data call for our Lard Day at FALL-In get together.

We are posting this to TMP because we received a number of responses on TMP but do not have a personal email address from folks who expressed interest. In those instances, please send me an email at As we get into more details we hope to take this off the forums and just communicate within the group of interested gamers/ gamemasters.

Patrick is going to work with the Fall-In organizers so all the Lardie games can be kept in a common area so that we can get displays up and have a community feel to the event. Therefore, we're asking for gamemaster info to be sent to us as opposed to submitting individual gamemaster forms to Fall-In.

Prospective Lard Day Gamemasters

We will be hosting Lard Days all day Friday and Saturday at Fall-In (Nov 3 and 4). Please provide the following information by 8/1/2017 if you wish to host one or more games.

Hello again,

Just wanted to remind everyone, if you expressed interest in participating in the Fall-In Lard days (either running a game, playing in a game or anything else), by responding on TMP, we probably don't have your email address. We've heard from a few TMPers but not everyone who expressed interest. So, if you want to be included on our email updates please let us have your email address. You can send it to me at
