@mike I didn't, but I thought about it.

Nerdlouvia 2018 - GMs and Volunteers Needed
Hey all, I am currently recruiting GMs for Nerdlouvia 2018. If you are interested in running a game, send an e-mail to Jonathan@Nerdlouisville.org.
2 4-hour slots will net you a free ticket, 1 4-hour slot nets you half off.
We also need volunteers to help out at the merch table and to run board games. 8 = free badge, 4 hours = half price.
Dates aren't nailed down yet but will be soon. Expect sometime around Mid November - early December.
RE: Quick Questions About Slur
@mike Yeah, I just about always have table numbers. The last Slur you made it to I was under the weather and I didn't put them together.
They don't always deliver to the table, I think it's just something they do when they aren't slammed since it's just one guy. I'd love it if it was every order, but I am going to talk to John about some kind of notification system so it doesn't interrupt games and anyone who orders can go out and get the food when it's ready if they can't deliver it in.
RE: Brother Caleb
As Brother Caleb studies The Book of Shadows, he learns the following:
The Shadow-Desert is a bleak parallel version of our world, a sort of “pocket universe” where the sun shines dimly at best, where shadows are long and indistinct and sometimes appear where no shadow should be. The book states that in many ways, the Shadow-Desert resembles something called the Dreamlands, as it is accessible both physically and via dreams. The book also references a pharmaceutical method of entering the eerie desert world and you learn the spell Create Shadow-Drug (see below).
Many real-world roads exist as faint trails in the Shadow-Desert. Familiar cities and towns may appear as mirages or shadows, and in other cases the settlements (or slightly different versions of them) may actually exist as ghost towns inhabited only by specters and more shadows. The only supplies to be found in the Shadow-Desert are those that can be gathered (like firewood), hunted (animals), or taken from other inhabitants (e.g. ammunition or gear taken from a fellow traveler); in the ghost towns of Shadow only the buildings exist, not the whiskey, food, guns, or horses.
Anyone physically present in the Shadow-Desert who dies is actually dead, though he or she may stalk the Shadows as a specter thereafter; dreamers slain there lose 1D8 Sanity points and awaken in the real world when the spell or drug that sent them there wears off.
• Cost: 5 POW and 1D3 Sanity points
• Casting time: 5 minutes of singing
This rare recipe is known to a few southwestern American Indian medicine men. It requires a variety of ingredients, mostly animal bones and herbs (some of which can only be obtained in the Shadow-Desert itself ). Each casting creates 1D6+6 individual doses of the drug. The drug can either be ingested or smoked, and costs 1D6 magic points and 1D4 Sanity points to use. The effects appear 15 to 20 minutes after the drug has been taken.
The drug makes the user sleepy, and when it takes effect he or she falls into a deep sleep from which they will not rise until the dose has worn off. Each dose lasts 2D6+2 hours; additional doses add the same amount of time again. Additional doses are dangerous, however, as each dose after the first requires a successful CON roll, otherwise the user’s body enters a coma, leaving his or her mind trapped in the Shadow-Desert. For up to two doses, the CON roll is Regular, for three to four doses it is Hard, and for any more the roll is Extreme.
RE: Quick Questions About Slur
@TonyM, thanks for the heads up, I have fixed the time on the Meetup event. When I was creating it, the new interface was giving me some issues so I had to put the information in several times. I'd say something got screwed up the last time I added the data in.
In regards to the food truck, I agree with @mike. We lost a lot of control unfortunately when Kaiju started making us use their truck. You have to order food from the bar now, not the truck, and we don't have a lot of control over when the truck sets up. Typically I think it's open all day now. @Mike, I think the last time you were at Slur, the food truck actually ran out of food, and a lot of people were unhappy about that. It sucks that we don't really have control over the menu or the truck like we did in the past. It was easier to plan breaks and send people by table.
I guess the benefit is, a lot of times they'll deliver the food right to the table. You can order at the bar and I often see the food delivered inside so players aren't waiting around when they could be gaming.
