London D&D Meetup - Beginner Tuesdays - RSVP required

Normally in Crosse Keys upstairs rear function room, go past the rope barrier and up the stairs (the 'private function' is us!). Otherwise in downstairs rear room. Games Calendar

RSVP Policy

You must RSVP. If you have not RSVP'd you can not attend that Beginners Tuesday event, and if you do turn up you may be required to leave. If you did not RSVP before the Meetup filled up, you should still RSVP, and will then go on the Waiting List. RSVPs close 3.30pm on the day.

1. If you have not attended before, check back then and see if you have made it onto the list - if so, you can attend. If not, better luck next time.

2. If you have attended before, and have a spot in a GM's game, but are still on the waiting list at 3.30pm on the day, you can still attend, and we will try to get you a spot, but please try to avoid this situation if possible.

Our Games

You can message our GMs via their Profile pages (linked below) to ask about available spaces in their games. Even if a game's regular slots are full there may still be spaces on the night for drop-in players due to player absence etc.

1. Simon - 4e D&D "Punjar Saga" (thread) & campaign blog

2. Mo - Pathfinder "Arcadia Falling" (thread) & campaign blog

3. Dana - 3.5e D&D "Atropus Awakens" (thread)

4. Joe Churcher - 4e D&D "Lost Crown of Neverwinter" (thread)

4. James Parsons - 4e D&D Dark Sun "Dragon's Tyr" (thread)

GMing a game

If you are interested in GMing any RPG at Beginners Tuesday please contact me, Simon, via PM or thread comment post. Games running on Beginners Tuesday should be suitable for beginners, and should be open to new players if there is space available, either a temporary spot/drop-in player, or potentially long-term. I normally use six players + GM as a guideline maximum number per table; let me know if your game can only take a smaller number.

4e GM's Kit: In case of a GM shortage, I'm bringing a printout of the 4e Quickstart guide with player characters, cardboard figures, dice, and the start of the free adventure Rescue at Rivenroar, where the town of Brindol is attacked by goblinoids - enough for a new GM to step up and run a session with zero notice, hopefully!

4e D&D Resources

1) 4e D&D Quickstart Guide

2) 4e D&D Player's Handbook on amazon

3) If you don't have a Player's Handbook or DDI subscription you may find WoTC's free, updated postings of most of the 4e PHB classes useful (no Paladin or Ranger, sorry):

Fighter Warlord Warlock Cleric Rogue Wizard

For GMs - don't like prep? Use Sly Flourish's GM Cheat Sheet withMonster Manual 3 on a business card and never prep again! :D

    NB We only have 4 GMs for Tuesday March 26th, whereas the next Meetup Tuesday April 9th we should have 7 GMs including two new games. So if you missed the slots for the 26th I suggest you RSVP for the 9th instead, thanks.

    Hi, this will also be my first meet.Am a complete newbie and don't know much except from what i gleaned from Baldur's Gate. I have RSVP'd .Is that all that is required?Do I need to talk to a GM tojoin a game or is it just show up and play?Also , do I have to bring my own dice or character sheet?

    March 18, 2013

    • Simon N.

      Hi Lee - you should be able to get in a Tuesday game if you just show up, but if you can book a spot with a GM in advance that's great too. Dice are always good, you don't need to bring a character sheet unless you know what game you'll be playing.

      March 18, 2013

  • Simon N.

    If you change your mind about attending, please be sure to cancel your attendance. We had a lot of no-shows last time which meant that one of our tables had to cancel, wasting the time of the people who had turned up. Although RSVPs close at 3.30pm on the day it's still possible to cancel after that time.

    Joe Churcher won't be running his game this time - would anyone else like to step up and run a game?
