February Games and Events

From: Carl S.

Ok, just becuase there's so much going on, I thought I'd drop a line to 
the group. As always, if you don't want to receive on topic e-mails from 
the meetup group, check the bottom of this e-mail for how to remove 
yourself from the list.

From the calendar, there are quite a few gaming things going on this 

Yesterday, two games were run:

Twilight 2000 in Arvada (every other Sunday).

Twilight 2000 is a role-playing game set in the aftermath of World War III 
(the "Twilight War"). The premise is that the United States/NATO and the 
Soviet Union/Warsaw Pact have fought a (limited) nuclear war with all its 
consequences. Characters in the game are survivors of the war.

Denver Shadowrun in Erie (every other Sunday).

Shadowrun is a pen-and-paper role-playing game set in an imaginary future 
where huge corporations control the lives of their employees and the 
return of magic has altered people, politics and power. When conflicts 
arise the corporations, governments, wealthy individuals and even 
organized crime can subcontract their dirty work to specialists. The most 
skilled of these specialists, called shadowrunners, have earned a 
reputation for getting the job done and have developed a knack for staying 
alive. In this game the player characters are shadowrunners who try to 
accomplish the mission presented by the game master.

Tuesday nights are Call of Cthulhu in Aurora (not sure of the setting, I 
prefer 1920's).

Call of Cthulhu is a horror fiction role-playing game based on H. P. 
Lovecraft's story of the same name and the associated Cthulhu Mythos. The 
game, often abbreviated as CoC, is published by Chaosium. It has won 
several major awards.

Thursday (and alternate Thursdays) is Seattle Shadowrun in Denver.

Next Sunday (and alternate Sundays) is Eberron (D&D 3.5) in Wheat Ridge.

Eberron is a campaign setting for the Dungeons & Dragons role-playing 
game, set in a period after a vast destructive war on the continent of 
Khorvaire. Eberron is designed to accommodate traditional D&D elements and 
races within a differently toned setting; Eberron combines a fantasy tone 
with pulp and dark adventure elements, and some non-traditional fantasy 
technologies such as trains, skyships, and mechanical beings which are all 
powered by magic.

The following Wednesday (and alternate Wednesdays) is Battle Tech in 

BattleTech is a wargaming and science fiction franchise, launched by FASA 
Corporation. In 2000, FASA properties were acquired by WizKids. WizKids in 
2003 was later purchaed by Topps, Inc. in 2003. and became current owner 
of the property. The series began in 1984 with FASA's debut of the board 
game BattleTech (originally named BattleDroids) by Jordan Weisman and L. 
Ross Babcock III, and has since grown to include numerous expansions to 
the original game, several computer and video games, a collectible card 
game, a series of more than 100 novels, an animated television series and 

In addition, Genghis Con is starting next Thursday (the 12th) and runs 
through the weekend. We've organized a meet and greet at the con just to 
say hi.

We've had several new members join in the past month who have expressed 
interest in other games such as Warhammer and I'm currently checking out 
CthulhuTech with an eye towards running a game.

If you're interested in getting new blood in your group, drop one of the 
organizers a line and we'll be happy to add your game to the calendar for 
whatever time period you want. There's a pretty good chance you'll get one 
or two new faces.

If you want to join a game, check out the calendar for an upcoming game or 
event (like Genghis Con) and post an RSVP.

See you at the next game.
