Starting an RPG!

  • Nov 16, 2013 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

We all had an awesome time at game night and it was decided that we would start an RPG campaign. It will be run by David and the game will be either Shadowrun or World of Darkness. David, please correct me if I got those names wrong, I feel like I might have lol. 

He wants to limit the campaign to about five people, but if there is enough interest he is willing to run two games so that everyone who wants to play can play. If two games happen then both Shadowrun and World of Darkness will be played.

This game will most likely be a biweekly event until the campaign has ended. The starting date of the campaign is still open for debate, I just chose a random date.

If you have never played an RPG before and you've been wanting to jump in without feeling like you're the only person who has no clue what they're doing, then this is the perfect opportunity for you. I, and quite a few other people in the group, have never played an RPG before so we'll be right there with you in the clueless section. Rest assured that David will explain everything from the very beginning :)

    I want to get in on the game thats set in the future, but i wanna go to a show at the hideout where the band plays theremins (theremins guys!! How cool is that?)

    I think if i take off from the meetup around 8:30 ill get to th show on time. But does that give me time to set up a character?

      An hour an a half will not be enough time for shadow run character creation... but you can start...

    I know I've yet to meet any of you despite RSVPing for pretty much every event, but work sucks and I'm almost always on call. Tomorrow I should FINALLY be able to make it. I'm excited because it's been a couple years since I played cWoD!

    They need a maybe category, I might be there. I feel like such a flake since I haven't been able to make these.

      So is it all right if I need to leave at 9pm? There's a friend's anniversary party that I can be late to, but cannot miss completely, possibly under pain of my bloody demise.

    I would like to try this, but as (bad) luck would have it, I am on call that weekend. It looks like you already have five, so I can wait and see if there is enough for another group.

      Dave doesn't count as one if the 5, so we have room for another

      We can always do character creation another time too, as long as we do it before the first serious session it shouldn't be a problem

    Hello everyone, I am happy about the turn out. It looks like for the first time in about a year and a half I will have an actual gaming group. The Meetup is coming up this Saturday. We currently have 8 people signed up. I think at this point if everyone came it would be fine. This will be a character creation and organizational session.

    I've updated this event with a wait list. If there are no more spots available and you want to play, go ahead and get on the wait list and we'll use that to determine if there are enough people to run a second game.

    I have a couple comments and or thoughts. This is just so people have some context between the two proposed systems.
    World of Darkness- I will be using owod 3rd edition. This system is fairly easy to use. It is simple to use and out of print. This system is modern fantasy. Secret societies or supernatural creatures: Vampires, Werewolf and mages (ohhhh-myyy) they are manipulating humans to their own ends. This system is mechanically easy to pick up. This game as all about personal horror for the characters from fighting the monster to releasing you have become the monsters you abhor.

      This game will have everyone start as a highschooler in Silver Springs, CO a fictional suburb of Colorado Springs, CO. This is near Fort Peterson, This Game would have you all start as freshman. This game would be reminiscent of buffy or similar coming of age highschool dramas that involve supernatural elements.
      Shadowrun 5th edition- this main book has just come out so this system will remain in print for a long time. This is the a game system that is similar to the movies Johny nemonic. Setting wise is considered cyber punk. Imagine a world where the world is run by corporations, and you play people who do the dirty deeds that these corp’s need. This game take place in the future where magic and the internet have come alive.

      System wise this one is a bit harder, as it almost three worlds overlaid on top of each other: The matrix, the astral world, and the material world. In this game everyone would play a mercenary trying to make it in the 6th world. A world with gangers, runners, and dragons. Watch your back, shoot straight, conserve ammo, and never, EVER cut a deal with a dragon.
      This game will take place in seatle. It will start out being more mission based but there is a planed metaplot.
