G'Day,

I am looking for people interested in playing Burning Midnight in Melbourne Australia.

What I mean by that is Burning Wheel in a Midnight setting.

It is not important to me that you know how to play Burning Wheel, just that you want to play Midnight.

I am interested in playing once a fortnight on a weeknight. I am happy to GM.

Justin.

If any of you know of any Australians on the board I would love to know.

A few years back I ran a campaign set in the foothills of the Kaladruns. I would love to start anbother one up.

Wow, I have been told by a Kiwi that confusing them with the Aussies is about one of the worst thing you can do. Maby aussies take it better.

I would say that there are analogues between the relationships Canada-USA and New Zealand-Australia.

One is larger than the other.
The rest of the world can not tell the difference between the two accents.
However, in the countries in question, there is a rich vein of jokes taking the piss out of each others acccents.
Canadians get angry if mistaken for Yanks. The Yanks don't really care.

You are right, the Kiwis do get their feathers ina ruffle if mistaken for Aussies.

I think there's a good joke about Australia starting as a penal colony there.  Grin

In news that's actually relevant, I am a Burning Wheel fan and would love to see anything you come up with for this project. Some Midnight flavored life path stuff would be awesome.

I second this. I was speaking in broad generalities.

I have lived with and worked with both Kiwis and Kanucks.

I have found them to be good and honorable people.
