~ About Us ~
We Gamers are some of the weirdest, most socially / culturally / ethnically diverse people you'll ever meet. We quite literally come in all shapes, ages, sizes, and genders. We are anime costume-wearing wanna-be cartoon characters who moonlight as Doctors / Lawyers / Entrepreneurs / Etc.., we are astronauts and janitors, we are the people who go to Star Trek conventions (trekkies and trekkers) and dress our kids up in pointy rubber ears, we are your neighbors down the street and the awkward geeky kid dating your daughter...
So, what is gaming? That's a question with many answers which vary widely depending on who you ask.
Gaming is RolePlaying through difficult morale quandaries that one's real life does not have, or intense strategic planning to best utilize small-unit tactics in a simulated life-or-death situation. Gaming can be puzzles and riddles, fantasy / sci-fi or horror and drama. Gaming is the limitless reach of our imaginations and has the power to take us to the edge of our own humanity - and back. Perhaps most importantly of all, Gaming is education; and it is quite literally the last Oral Tradition I know of in the mainstream Western World today. Gamers game for many reasons, if one game doesn't suit you there are a thousand more to try.
Roleplay Games include but are by no means limited to Legend of the Five Rings, 7th Sea, Dungeons and Dragons, World of Darkness, Traveler, Space 1889, Cyberpunk, Twilight 2000, Star Trek RPG, Star Wars RPG, Serenity Role Playing Game, Bushido, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Marvel Superheros, and many, many more.
Unfortunately, we as a subculture don't organize very well. This site is dedicated to the Gamers of the greater Lawton / Ft. Sill area (Southwest Oklahoma), in hope that they organize and Stay In The Game.
