I'm running games independently, not part of a gaming group. Someone messaged me and asked if I could add two players to one of the RPG games I'm running or if I can add a session. He asked nicely. So, amongst my questions are:
- Can I just say, "I can create two more PCs for game X, so if you show up five minutes early, then I'll get you in." Or do I need to adjust the maximum number of players and hope no one preregisters before they do?
- I assume I need to collect generic tickets for the new players. Do I note anything special when I turn them in?
- If I create a new session, then is there a way to say, "two slots are taken?" If I'm envisioning seven players, do I mark "Max Players: 5" to limit the number of preregisters, or "Max Players: 7" and hope they preregister in time?
- How do other GMs handle this? Am I starting a bad precedent?
Thanks in advance.
