Quick Questions and Answers
What does theThe Berwyn Gaming Group Meetup offer? -We offer a safe, supervised environment to experience D&D (or any roleplaying system). The Meetup Organizer and Assistant Organizers provide a structure for the Meetup to smoothly operate and assistance when needed.
How do I get started? -Players: A quick look at the Campaigns page would be the first step if you're looking to join an existing campaign. Once you find a campaign you like, contact the DM to request a seat at the session. He/she should contact you in return with the specifics of the campaign.
-DMs: If you intend on beginning a new campaign, contacting an Organizer for more information would be a good idea. We're always looking for talented DMs to create more roleplaying opportunities for The Berwyn Gaming Group!
What's a Meetup? -If you check out our Calendar, a meetup is when the community comes together at the Berwyn Moose Lodge in Berwyn to enjoy some D&D. Meetups are held where you can get down to some serious recreation with other roleplaying enthusiasts. Meetups are usually scheduled on Sundays start between 12pm and 1pm and end by 6:30PM. Contact your DM regarding session length/rules.
What should I bring? -Generally speaking you'll need at least paper and a pencil to participate in any campaign. Additional (and recommended) supplies include a set of your own dice, core rulebooks, character sheets, a miniature to represent your character, a snack, and money to get food during the session. We do ask that you purchase drinks from the Lodge. Check with your DM or ask an Organizer for more specific supplies or questions regarding what you can/should bring.
Wait! You didn't answer all my questions! -If you have further questions regarding the Meetup you can either post a reply to this thread in the general forum or email an Organizer directly. We'll do our best to answer whatever questions you may have :)
