I am talking about the 10th.

As for session length, that's a good question. Given that starting time how long can people go? I was thinking that as an introductory session designed to show off rules systems that it would be something like 3 hours, but what would people prefer?

I was thinking of the context of a barebones plot that focuses on scenes that utilize each of the main parts of the rules, to introduce the whole system, and would include people making characters, to show character creation, as well. Another option would be to go a little longer and do a full scenario with perhaps pregen characters. Any preferences here?

Speaking for myself, this Saturday should work fine. If we do 8 PM PDT (which is 10 PM my time) I'd rather do a 3-hour intro session. If people would prefer a full scenario, it might work better to split the game up into 2 or more sessions. I'll run out of gas by 1 AM my time.

Sorry... this Saturday, May 10th, doesn't work for me. My wife has already made plans for us that will most likely go into the late evening. What about Friday the 9th?

Friday the 9th also works. As for starting time, I was mixing up Mountain and Central time. How does 7 pm PDT work?

7pm PDT = 9pm in Central, so I'm good with that.

I'm willing to run two sessions. One this weekend and one next weekend. More Trail of Cthulhu experience on the podcast would be great. More exposure for a great system.

Considering we're looking at s start one hour earlier. I'm inclined to run an adventure from Arkhsm Detective Tales. This could easily be followed up with another the following week, with returning characters.

Looks like we have three people for Friday. I'd prefer to use Google Hangouts, so I'll need people's Google+ usernames so I can initiate the Hangout. Feel free to message me with that.
