There is a small gaming-only convention running in north Atlanta
(Norcross) in October specifically for the purpose of playing D&D 4E.
These games will be part of the Living Forgotten Realms system. This
convention will have plenty of mods for new players. So if you
haven't played Dungeons and Dragons 4th Edition, or haven't played
Living Forgotten Realms (LFR) here's your chance to start a new
character. The campaign is still very new (it just started in August)
so most people have first, second, or third level characters - so this
is a great time to start playing.
If you're not familiar with LFR, it's a D&D 4th Edition shared game
world. People literally all over the world play it, and unlike with
your local home game, you can take your character, as-is and go play
with them. Fun at big cons, meeting new people, good stuff. Wizards of
the Coast has a whole group of people dedicated to putting out FREE
adventures for you to play and making sure you have fun doing it. Of
course, there are a few rules. Think of them as your "house rules"
that a GM might lay down for a new campaign.
This is a great way to meet more gamers in the Atlanta area, as well
as to get some exposure to the D&D 4th Edition system if it's new to
If you want to play, go ahead and sign up for the convention. There
will be a cover charge to play (as we are renting a meeting room in a
hotel, and we have to pay for it). When you get the email about
paying your fees, then pay them and sign up for the games that sound
interesting to you.
If you have some questions, post 'em here or email me.
