    So if I started at Noon on a Sunday, that would be around 6:00pm for the UK (?) and around 10:00 am (?) for Western Canada.  Would that work?

    That should be a good time frame for me! Are you planning on every week though? Just wondering because I do record podcasts on Sundays sometimes too, including this coming. And when are you thinking of starting? I've only had chance to just glimpse at the rules since I didn't think I'd get to play it anytime soon, and have no real experience with D&D (only played a single game). I've only really played the Free League engine.

    It is perhaps a little bit ironic that it could be perceived that the Stargate TV shows are the actual alternate takes on things, while the McCay novels could have been a matching-continuity continuation from the original movie. I don't remember where I read it or if it was even from a legitimate source - Dean or Roland - but I thought there was mention somewhere at some point, way back in the day, that the McCay novels were intended to serve as the continuation of the original story. That may not make much sense if the creators also wanted the original Stargate to turn into a trilogy. Although, the making a trilogy - at least as a reboot - may have been a more recent idea, while prior to that they may have wanted to continue the story in McCay's books after the original Stargate movie was, in itself, adapted into a book.

    I would take all of that with a grain of salt, just chalk it up to being gossip.

    It's gossip that gets around, though. I've heard it before that the books took in Devlin and Emmerich's notes for sequels, but I've never seen the source myself. Same sort of gossip that ID4 is a Stargate sequel because of some of the similarities between the third book and ID4, I guess. Speaking of, I'm now onto Book 3 of my rereads! I try not to binge read series these days, so I always take breaks between series and franchises, and started Retribution last week. I'd forgot all about the Setim's defence system on Earth!

    Is there room for Bill McCay sourcebook on the schedule perhaps?

    Probably not. It's so far removed from SG1. 

  3. I'm revisiting Bill McCay's Stargate novels for the first time in a while. I read them through a few times about 10+ years back. I'm a sucker for alternate takes on things so I've always really enjoyed the experience of reading these. I'm about a third of the way through the first book, Rebellion.

    Any other fans on here?
