T-Party Discussion Forum

Post by millionwaves » Sun Feb 14, 2010 6:24 pm

Cross-posted:

I've just set up a hidden forum for the discussion of T-Party. TO ENTER:

From your user control panel, select usergroups. Find T-Party at the bottom of the list, then click the radio button and submit as "join selected." Andy, Rob, and Bernadette will be in charge of approving people to join the T-Party discussion, so if you think they might not recognize your username, let them know who you are. This would be a good thread in which to do so.

I did not play T-Party but am not an active player and will never play this set. I requested to join the group because I am always curious to see discussion of sets in order to improve my own skills as a writer/editor.
