And away we go.
Unless there are going to be problems, I'd like to claim your 5pm to 10pm (ish) Sunday evening slots for about the next year or so. If that's cool.
I'd like to do chargen on Sunday, the 4th of September. Please let me know if you see any conflicts with this date or the timeslot.
Each of you, in addition to being added to this mailing list, should be receiving a Blogger invitation to join the Shackled City blog. It will be a bare bones place for me to hang information about the campaign. By accepting the invitation, you will be able to comment on my posts and make your own posts to the blog. This does require you to create a Blogger identity, which takes about 3 seconds and is relatively non-invasive. It is at your discretion whether or not you want to create an identity.
To follow the blog, which will mirror all DM posts to this list, point your RSS reader here: http://www.randomdialogue.net/gaming/shackledcity/shackledcity.xml
