Seeking DM + 1-2 near Chantilly/Fairfax, Pathfinder or 3.5

We are a couple looking for 1-2 more for a weekly Pathfinder or 3.5 game on Monday, Thursday and/or Friday nights. Need a DM, plus 1-2 more. Would like to keep the group smallish.

We can host, and live within walking distance of Fairfax Towne Center. We have a copy of Pathfinder core rules and 3.5 PHB/DMG.

Would prefer to have a casual first meetup at a coffee shop or similar, as we're all a bunch of crazy strangers. :-P First meetup should probably include nailing down everyone's expectations and commitment levels. If the DM prefers, it could also include character creation and developing character backgrounds so the DM has something to work with for the first real session. (just brainstorming here)

About us: As my profile says, I'm coming back to gaming after a long hiatus, so I'm familiar with the concepts and most of the rules. My girlfriend is new to tabletop gaming, but I've been running her through a solo campaign to show her the ropes. I'm rusty, she's new, but we're both fast learners.

If we host: we have a 45 pound dog. He's a harmless wimp, but I wanted to mention in case anyone has allergies. We have no children.

    Is there still space available in this group? I have Friday evening and all weekends off. I have been playing pathfinder for the last year, and have been playing DnD since the red box.

    • David

      Okay, Trenton, I just sent you my email.

    • Paul T. M.

      David I believe we are planning on playing Saturday nights...

    Got roped into a yard sale tomorrow and won't be able to get there until late...still interested in the game though...

    • Kate F.

      OK we will look for you and send details if you end up not making it :-)

      June 23, 2013

  • Kate F.

    OK so, we have staked out a table. Max is wearing his D&D red T-shirt so he's easy to find :-)

    June 23, 2013

  • Trenton Elijha S.

    Do we maybe want to go through character creation?

    June 23, 2013

    • Kate F.

      Probably not... we don't even have a dm picked for sure, do we? A few ppl have expressed interest.

      June 23, 2013

  • Kate F.

    OK guys! I've set the meetup for THIS SUNDAY at 3 PM at the Corner Bakery Cafe at Fair Oaks Mall! It's a nice place to sit and have coffee, plus they have food and snacks if people are hungry or whatever.

    Anyone who wants to join, we'll discuss upcoming campaigns, pick a DM for our first campaign, and choose a permanent meeting place and time based on who's there.

    If you can't come on Sunday or you hate Fair Oaks Mall or something else, please reply ASAP so we can either change the location (if enough people object), or set up a new Meetup for another/different campaign.

    Hooray! D&D!

    June 20, 2013

    • David

      Okay, I'll try to make it, but Sundays aren't good for me. :-)

      June 22, 2013

    • Trenton Elijha S.

      Sounds like a great plan. Look forward to tomorrow.

      June 22, 2013

    If it's okay to ask, who made the initial post here? There's no name showing up for me.

      I made the original post, but then life got in the way. I'm no longer going to be able to attend this, but it looks like Kate has picked up the ball and is running full speed ahead with it.

      June 21, 2013

  • Trenton Elijha S.

    You mean who made the "Seeking DM +1-2 near chantilly/fairfax" or who started posting yesterday?

    June 21, 2013

  • Trenton Elijha S.

    Sounds great. Look forward to meeting everybody that is going to be coming Sunday.

    June 20, 2013

  • Paul T. M.

    Are spots still available? I am looking to join a 3.5 group (have never played Pathfinder). I have every 3.5 book (core, realm, etc.) on pdf and have been playing D&D since 1980. Looking for a good group who will meet regularly. Coffee meet and greet sounds perfect.

    June 20, 2013

    • Kate F.

      Sure, no problem! Sounds like a few people who are signed up right now won't be able to come, and hey...we could always start a second campaign. ;) Come on by!

      June 20, 2013

  • Kate Ferreri changed the location to Corner Bakery Cafe

    June 20, 2013

  • Trenton Elijha S.

    Mon-thur after 7. Sat after 5, all day Sunday.

    June 20, 2013

  • Trenton Elijha S.

    I'm ok with Sunday at 3. Just need a place to show up at now.

    June 20, 2013

  • Kate F.

    OK, I suggested a date. Where do people want to meet? I vote for Tysons Corner or Fair Oaks Mall but am open to suggestions. :)

    June 20, 2013

  • Kate Ferreri changed the date and time to Sunday, June 23, 2013 at 3:00 PM

  • Ryan H.

    If you all still need a DM, and are open to the idea of letting me host (I'm in Alexandria), I can do all Mondays and some Thursdays. I know the Pathfinder system very well and have a campaign ready.

    June 20, 2013

  • Kate F.

    Well, when are people available? We're available most weeknights and on weekends. We're coming from Fairfax/Chantilly.

    June 20, 2013

  • Trenton Elijha S.

    Let's come up with a date then

    1 · June 20, 2013

  • Max

    Super interested, as we live in the area and have been looking for a group just like this!

    I'm an experienced GM for both DnD 3.5 and Pathfinder, and I would love to run a game or play in one any time! My girlfriend Kate is in the same boat.

    A coffee and character creation meetup sounds like a great start!

    I'm definitely interested...I live in Manassas, so could be a good halfway spot for those coming from Fredericksburg if needed...I have a dedicated gaming room,and I've been DMing 3.5 and Pathfinder for years...I'll throw my hat in for the DM spot and echo the call for a casual first meetup to, well, meet...

    Hey, if you are still looking for a game, I'm currently hosting a weekly Wed night (6:30 - 10pm) D&D Next game at my place in Chantilly (around the corner from Game Parlor). We're looking for a couple of new players.

    We started out with D&D 3.5 and may shortly go back to that ruleset. If you're interested, let me know and I can fill you in on some more details

    May 29, 2013

    • Ben S.

      Hi Eddy. Are you still looking for new players? I would be able to play via Skype for the summer.

      June 20, 2013

    • Trenton Elijha S.

      I'm looking to play too

      June 20, 2013

  • Trenton Elijha S.

    Depending on what day and time. I could give you a ride to and from Ben if that would make it easier for you to play

    June 20, 2013

  • Ben S.

    If you're desperate for players, I could join on Skype - I'm in Alexandria, but only for the summer and as I rely on public transportation and am working full time, coming in person wouldn't be possible (except maybe for a meet and greet)

    June 20, 2013

  • Trenton Elijha S.

    Hi, definitely interested in your idea of starting a group. I live near Fredericksburg but traveling isn't a problem. Have really been able to find a closer group so I've started looking for a group with 30-40miles of Fred. I do have so DM experience with 3.5e and playing experience with 3.5 and pathfinder.

  • Jason

    Hey, I'm definitely interested in joining a weekly game. I just started playing again about 6 months ago, but the group had to break up due to work commitments.

    Hi, I have also not played for many years. I'd be interested in the group you are attempting to start, but since I live much closer to the beltway I probably couldn't do weeknights. If you decide to pursue a recurring weekend day please let me know. Thanks!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
