    Too many players (RPG)

    Thank you to everyone who has commented, lots of really good advice. I think the issue for me is just the number of players and the associated difficulty of keeping them all indulged and the game interested. In Call of Cthulhu it's the impact on tone and theme. Having 8 characters turn up to interview someone, or 8 people in a suddenly very crowded haunted house just feels wrong. So we've decided that we'll go with the two groups option with room at the Cthulhu table for extras whenever we can fit them in. The remaining issue is finding someone to GM another game, nobody seems to want to.

    Too many players (RPG)

    This is all good advice. I think the sessions are manageable but at the back of my mind I know the sessions are not as good as they could be because I have less time to spend with each player. Maybe we need two GMs as Jordan says but maybe we run two different games on a fortnightly cycle with 4 players prioritised for each game, any vacancies at each game can then be filled by the back up players who have priority at the 'other' game. Does that make sense? I just need to find someone else willing to GM
  3. Last Summer I started running a Call of Cthulhu campaign after 15 years away from roleplaying games. I was a little concerned that it would feel awkward, especially as I knew only 1 of the 4 players. But that wasn't the case, we've gelled, the campaign has gone from strength to strength and we've attracted other players along the way, all of whom are keen and are sticking with it. On Halloween we started the epic Masks of Nyarlathotep campaign. It's going really well, we're through the Peru chapter and just about to conclude the New York chapter, but I've come to the difficult conclusion that eight players is too many and I need to get back down to a maximum of six. I reasoned at the start of the campaign that a couple of players would be unable to attend each week and so the numbers issue would not be a problem, this has not happened. Has anyone else been in this situation? What did you do?
  4. CMON came good on the Black Friday haul. I received lots of Wrath of Kings stuff at a great price even when you add in shipping and customs fees. About 70% of the other items I ordered weren't in stock including all of the Dark Sword Minis (shame because I really wanted some of the anthropomorphic ones). Overall though I'm really pleased, it takes away some of the regret I have about cancelling my order from the previous years Christmas sale and missing out on some of the Judge Dredd models. The two standout Wrath of Kings sets

    Carnevale 2.0 kickstarter by TT Combat

    Fulfilment is complete, and the models are really nice.

    Low Life Miniatures

    An update form Andy Hopp. Incredibly, 7 years after it was launched, this campaign is still limping along and Andy is still trying to deliver it. I'm grateful to him for hanging in there but also a little cynical that the 'further delayed' updates tend to coincide with the launch of a new kickstarter.
  7. Just watched The Force Awakens for the first time since seeing The Last Jedi. Confirmed my thoughts that the latter is a much much weaker film which squandered the opportunities set out by the former.
