I held a Fireside gathering today and I am very surprised at the lack of tools that were offered to me. I couldn't find any official forums with tips on who to start the event so I was going in very blind. The building manager also called me and told me that I would have to move up the event two hours 4 days in advance because they were going to have to close early. I could not alter the event in anyway whatsoever or delete it and make a new one. I did link to a Facebook page and about 8 people showed up at the new time, but about 8 more showed up when the event was ending an I had to tell them that the building was closing. I purpose a system that lets people say that they are going to event, allowing the Innkeeper to see how many people are expected, and to allowing them to make changes to, or cancel the event, with an automatic update being sent to all those going. Wiz Kids uses a similar system in their Heroclix organizing and Facebook has a system like this as well. I know that this entire warlock promotion is considered a failure, but this was the kick that needed to become an Innkeeper like I wanted to for a long time. Learn from this Blizzard, and add more tools for the Innkeeper and participants beyond a single post that can never be altered.
True. Also many didn't know that it has to be tavern fireside gathering to get nemsy. At my place many are just normal fireside gathering. When the host knew about it the current gathering can't be changed to tavern and it can be set 48hours later. What a waste of time blizzard has caused everyone just because they made alot of hoohah about new hero but the fine print is so small.
