    How does this Hobby Shop feel about us bringing liquids (beer/wine?) and/or snacks?

    August 19, 2013

      I think snacks and non-adult beverages should be okay. Not sure about the big boy drinks, so lets not chance it.

  • Tom

    I would be willing to DM a 3.5 game. I could have an adventure ready by then if we do game. Are we going to game on the 19th, or is it more "meet and greet", character creation and such? Will both groups be going concurrently, or every other week?
    Sorry so many questions; most likely will touch on most of this the first meeting? I tend to over analyze...lol

    August 15, 2013

    • max

      i think the meet an greet is a given. Group breakdown and character creation is a yes. both groups will be playing at the same time, the location has plenty of room from what i gathered. i visit once and a small pathfinder group was there, about 4 people, taking up about 10-18% of aval. space. we can do every other week or one group one week and one group the next. the details i think will be up to everyone. i want this to be up to all who are involved and make sure both DM's are in agreement. i would also like to be able to take the reigns if you can't make it one week and vice versa so i think we'll focus on 3.5 for now.

      August 15, 2013

  • max

    part2:
    So i wouldn't wanna be the only person to have a say in all this. having two game groups will be a huge benefit to all if DMs stay in contact. so if we decide to have two different days in the future, if someones schedule changes they can take their character to the other game and hopefully have a smooth transition. I'm getting ahead of myself all the details will be worked out on Monday. i would like to have a 2nd edition game, but have been preparing for a 3.5. so ill start with that, if my group decides on 2nd we'll use the 3rd edition conversion book to retrofit and rollback into second if people want at a later game session. like i said all details will be worked out on Monday.

    August 15, 2013

  • max

    I am so stoked for this Monday. thanks in advance to everyone coming and a extra thanks to Tom for being another DM. A lot of the specifics for future game night we'll decide this Monday, that way everyone can have a part in deciding what will happen. As the meet-up name implies, must of us have jobs and/ or pretty rough schedules so this will allow as many of us an opportunity to participate in something we enjoy or are interested in.

    Might stop by to check it out. Never really gotten into DnD before, but always been interested.

    August 14, 2013

  • max

    alright had a few responses. so im thinking we'll do the 3.5 and for the old timers like me we'll throw in a little 2nd edition to keep role playing at a fun level. but no, you won't hear the word(even if it pains me slightly) thaco. we'll all ease into the game. i know some of you haven't played in a while. for some of you who want to play sec or dare i say 1st edition we'll make the accommodation as the group may grow to multiple days if people are interested.

    August 11, 2013

  • max

    need to get a the feel. is it 3.5 or 2nd edition. what does every one want to play. truthfully i was preping a 3.5 but it if everyone here wanted to or would be open to play 2nd i can get started on that now. need a response asap so i can hop to it, since we all meet up in less then 10 days

    August 9, 2013

    • Ryan

      I'm not familiar with second but willing to learn. I understand Pathfinder was based on 3.5, with many things fixed, so some of it may ba more familiar to me. I'm still not sure if I'll drop my Thirsday game for a while to play with you all closer to home, but I'll likely decide after the first session or 2.

      August 11, 2013

    • Ryan

      Thanks again by the way for coordinating and planning for all this!

    July 29, 2013

  • Carson S.

    looks like fun

    July 25, 2013

  • max

    Alright, looks like all that responded will be playing 3.5ed. since i have the space reserved for us at Bonnie brae for a few more lets see who wants to do 2nd edition as well. Also i moved the back one week since Rusty is running four every other Monday and looks like he maybe splitting into more groups. Given the proximity of the meetups to each other, this may allow folks to participate in both event spanning 2nd to forth editions. I am opening the door to more DMs. If your interested in 2nd now is the time to speak up, since we have plenty of time to arrange for more tables. i can book the second floor area as well and we'd be set for every other Monday to have 2 or more games going. So if you want to DM let the group know. If you haven't before, give it a shot. But please understand the game from the players perspective. We don't need anyone learning to while DMing

    1 · July 24, 2013

    • Tom

      This is looking great, thank you Max for getting this all organized! I am willing to DM, but will wait until after first meeting to fully commit to that. Give a chance to meet everyone, see how they like to play, etc. To be honest I usually DM, so would be nice to "play" instead. lol.

      July 25, 2013

    • Carson S.

      I'd like to play 2nd edition, either as a player or as a DM, I've had experience as both.

      July 25, 2013

  • Ryan

    I like the sound of this game even though I'm not familiar with 2nd or 3.5 (pathfinder some), but I would have to drop my Thursday night which just went to a savage worlds x-men game. So far that one is entertaining but your game is much closer to home! I'll keep tabs on you guys and may show up to meet you all for your 1st session if that's cool. It certainly looks like this is coming together nicely!

    alright talked to an employee at bonnie brae hobby shop. their into us playing their and leaving store open late for Monday sessions. their located at 3421 S Broadway Englewood, CO 80113. let me know who's cool with that. looking to flood in at 6:00- 6:30. Start building characters. and making a weekly thing. If its too far anyone let me know ill figure out a central location. But they seemed really cool. they sell reaper minis so you can pick one up there after character generation. i will finalize with them with the week. So if anyone's got objections, questions, or suggestions. let me know

    Hi I'm completely new to d&d I played 4e in school a little bit but I wasn't really explained a lot of things and I had a feeling that the dm just winged a lot of things....I'm interested in playing 4e or any other edition but I need would need to be taught everything......also I would be able to show up every other week at first because englewood is pretty far from where I live... Then once I have a stable job I think I could do every week..... I own the 4e players handbook and dm guide.... I've read the players guide but I still have a few questions that I didn't fully understand, if you guys aren't playing 4e though. I think I could get a hold of the 3.5 core rules but I guess what I'm asking is..... Would anyone be willing to teach me?

    July 24, 2013

    • max

      if you really want to play 4th edition check out rusty's forth edition meetup. its still in the suggested tab of the upcoming meetups. he wants to dm for the first time. check his thing out. but 3.5 or older is what we are looking at here. im also starting another meetup d&d for nebs. but that too will be proply 3.5 or older. And thats simply that D&D next (or 5th edition) will be more of a mix for 3.x and older(with a little 4th sprinkled in Im sure).

    July 23, 2013

    • max

      There a few pathfinder games going on already. But im open to the idea. I never played that before but may understanding is that its on off-shoot of 3.5 by a few former employees of wizard. im a wrong on that.

    I'd be interested depending on the location. I could also DM if people would be up for 2nd edition.

    July 23, 2013

    • max

      haven't played 2nd for a while. But that does sound pretty awesome. im not opposed to it, if anyone else wants to. ahh second edition takes me back

      location at this point is looking like bonnie brae in englewood

      July 23, 2013

  • Rusty

    Thanks for the invitation. I'm actually trying to get a group together to play 4e every other Monday. Between that and a game I play in, that is all the roleplaying I have time for. If you're interested in some 4e action let me know, we have two more spots open.

    July 23, 2013

    • max

      never played forth. willing to try.

      July 23, 2013

    • max

      But im all nostalgic. want to keep this group to sec. or 3.5 since D&D next is pretty much mostly a combo of the two.

      July 23, 2013

  • Alexander R.

    Where are you thinking about locating it? My roommate and I are up for a Monday evening 3.5 game.

    July 23, 2013

    • max

      Right now i'm just looking for a location. im thinking it will be 3 weeks out. monday sounds fine. and i dont want to run a single group of 10+. what i meant by that is you can have 10 and run a meet up multiple days. And you can pick the best time for yourself. i dont mind being dm. but it would be nice to have another. run it like the old rpga did. character sheets get shared and dms know how to integrate characters into their campaign should someones schedule change.

      July 23, 2013

    • max

      sorry about all the confusion. But had the idea at work while sifting thru meetups with no remaining slots. So i just got frustrated. So im starting this meet-up to give more people a chance to play and DM.
