Re: [roleplayers-530] Story Games February Meetup: People's Choice - Cool -- making characters is always more fun and more involving. I've run 3:16 before so I could definitely run that another time.

Re: [roleplayers-530] Story Games February Meetup: People's Choice - Dogs sounds like a lot of fun if you're up for running it.
