Recruitment Game -- D&D 3.5 Sword & Sorcery

This one's going to be a wee bit different than our usual monthly fare.

On the surface, it's the same basic deal: Come out and spend an afternoon playing an RPG (in this case, good ol' Dungeons & Dragons 3.5E).

The goal of this session, however, would be carrying the game forward, and if, after the first session, we've all decided that we can be in a room together on a regular basis without killing one another, I'd like to discuss the possibility of finishing out the module as a group. We could, at that point, talk logistics for a semi-permanent game.

I'm going to be posting some particulars in a message board thread attached to this meetup; if you think that you're interested in taking part in this one, I'd encourage you to give it a look, and chime in with any questions, comments, etc.

tl;dnr -- This one won't stop after one session at Labyrinth...

    Good game, guys! I'll try to work out the email list before the end of the long weekend.

      Thanks for running it Jim! Looking forward to more.

    Just a heads-up: We've had another person drop out, so we now have one open seat. If you're on the Wait List, and are still into coming to play, now's a good time to update your RSVP.

    With the game about a week or so away, this just a reminder for everyone who has RSVPed Yes to make sure that they can still attend. Also, for the waiting list, it seems that a spot has opened up; it's first-come-first-served.

    I also understand that we have a couple of folks here who either aren't familiar with this version of D&D, or possibly aren't familiar with D&D at all. If you want to get a look at how things are structured, have a look at this site: http://www.d20srd.org/ D&D 3.5 was party to the "D20 license" (probably too long to explain here), and thus the vast majority of the basic rules can be found, legally, for free online.

    Quick Note: Andrew is getting the ball rolling on character-building on the discussion thread; if you get a chance, you might want to chime in, and discuss who wants to play what sort of character.

    For those who find themselves on the Wait List, another of our members (Ben) just posted a similar event for the Arlington area. If you're not sure that you want to wait, this might be a chance to move to the front of the proverbial line! :-)

    Mathias, this version is a little "crunchier" than its predecessors, a little more rules-oriented. Starting at 1st level should remove most of the learning curve, though. And it sounds like I should bring you a character, rather than ask you to make your own. :-)

    Andrew, this one would meet every other week at best, every month at worst. That, and some notes on character creation, are touched on in the message board thread; feel free to discuss there as well. :-)

    Hey everyone! If you get a chance, could you please update your RSVPs with a note on whether you're looking for a long-term game, or just coming out to kill monsters and get treasure for an afternoon? Either one is cool by me, but remember: If this one does turn into a long-term game, we'll be playing it somewhere either in VA or (possibly) DC, and I don't want folks to get the wrong idea about logistics/location. Thanks!

      EDIT: Declaring "long term" or "one shot" will also help me get a handle on how many premades I should think about bringing. Thanks!

    Damn, full already? Waitlist for me, I suppose. I hope I get to join in; I've been looking for a local group since I moved to the area over 2 years ago.

      Nolan: Not sure what the 19th will look like for you (hell, I'm not yet sure what it will look like for me), but if you're not busy, you might want to come 'round to the game. I'm not sure how many folks will want to continue, and how many are just looking to play a one-shot.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
