RPGChicago: Back to Basics

From: Nate S.

Hi folks,

Thanks for being a member of RPGChicago.

In this update (long overdue):
1. D&D Encounters
2. ENWorld Game Day is today!
3. Monthly Meetup & our 2nd GM Clinic

1. D&D Encounters
We're now sponsored by Wizards of the Coast: D&D Encounters! This is part of a larger push by WOTC to actively market and promote the game we know and love (you may have seen this recent article on CNN).

D&D Encounters is a great way for you to get a little gaming in on a weeknight without the commitment of a campaign, and currently you can get sneak peeks of the new Dark Sun campaign setting... months before its official release! D&D Encounters is being offered exclusively to retailers, check out the RPGChicago calendar for locations and times.


2. ENWorld Game Day

If you don't have plans today, June 12th, you should head up to Games Plus in Mt. Prospect! ENWorld Game Day is today, a periodic event that is practically a mini-convention in its own right. Their last event drew over 40 RPG players and was abuzz with activity.


3. Monthly Meetup and our 2nd GM Clinic

I haven't done quite as much as I'd like to with this group, and I'm taking things back to basics... a consistent monthly meetup in hopefully a consistent venue.

If you'd like to run something concurrently, let me know. There is ample street parking near the venue, and they have a spacious upper floor.

Additionally, Michael has offered to run a GM Clinic on Sandbox campaigns... how can you effectively run a game where the options are limitless? What do you need to do in order to keep the players interested? We talked about this in April, and he posted his idea. We'll be scheduling this shortly. I'm looking forward to it!

Thanks again for being a member,
