Weekly 3.5 or 4e meetup in Crystal City

Hello gents,

Tried this once before and had some interest, unfortunately life got in the way and I was unable to make the session happen. That said, I am looking to start a weekly (Sunday afternoons and evenings) 3.5 or 4e game in the Crystal City Shops, with either myself or a brave volunteer as the DM. I have a year and a half of experience DMing a 4e game and experience playing 3.5. All we need are players!

The specific place that I have in mind is right next to the Crystal City Metro stop. It is the large courtyard in front of the Subway/Mind Your Body Oasis, known as "The Landing." I am more than willing to teach newcomers!

    Hi everyone! I'm back in Los Angeles, and it's been great playing with you guys.

    There is one thing. My cell phone plan charges me when I get a text...can you guys start a new conversation without me? Thanks!

    August 11, 2013

    • Mike

      Already done. I would have let you know, but I figured sending you a text would have been bad form.

      August 11, 2013

    • Mike

      It was great to have you for a few weeks, though. If you're ever in the DC area again in the future, feel free to drop in on a session!

    Hi all, I'm back in state. Are we playing today? I'll text when its not 4:30 am to confirm.

    August 11, 2013

  • Ben S.

    Are we playing today?

    July 21, 2013

  • Chris C.

    We've started meeting around 4:30, in order to give Sam (Snake) time to arrive from work. Ending about 9ish.

    Nate is going to be out of town for a while (enjoy Vegas!) but there will still be myself, Ben and Sam.

    We've also exchanged phone numbers, in the thought that group-texting would work better than here. My # is[masked] if you want to text me, then I'll shoot you everyone else.

    July 11, 2013

    • Mike

      He'll have to cut out early but he can make it. Wouldn't you, myself and Ben make 3 PCs anyway?

      July 14, 2013

    • Chris C.

      Yeah, I was going to DM a one shot last week, and offering to play a PC didn't save the game either. So it'll be up to Ben!

      July 14, 2013

  • Mike

    Good news, everyone! My life has settled down and I should be able to make sessions through the rest of the month. Is everyone still good for it, and are we still doing 1:30pm at the usual place?

    July 11, 2013

  • Chris C.

    So looking at a 4:30 start today?

    June 30, 2013

    • Chris C.

      That's what I understand

      June 30, 2013

    • Mike

      Sorry for the late response, but I just found out I won't be able to make it tonight, or next week either. Work settles down after that though so I'll be able to be able to make regular sessions for the foreseeable future.

      June 30, 2013

  • Snake

    Yeah, I had a great time as well. Nate did a fantastic job setting things up even if we did fubar everything, lol.

    As far as the next sessions go, it looks like they are gonna keep scheduling me to work on Sunday mornings which means I wouldn't be able to leave for Crystal City until 4pm each week, getting there around 4.15-4.30. It seems that there are a couple options, so I'll leave it up to you guys:
    1) We could just start later
    2) Someone could control my character as an NPC until I get there
    3) You guys can just continue without me

    June 26, 2013

    • Ben S.

      I'm flexible

      June 26, 2013

    • A former member
      A former member

      I'm ok with starting later.

      June 27, 2013

  • Chris C.

    Nice playing tonight guys. Sorry I died! Do we want to make a new meetup to schedule the next one?

    June 23, 2013

  • Chris C.

    Im stupid I went to the wrong shops. Be there in a sec

    June 23, 2013

  • Chris C.

    Do you guys know of a decent card/comic shop in alexandria/arlington?

    June 23, 2013

    A former member

    Alright everyone, does 500 sound like a good time to meet up? (excluding snake who will arrive later?) I'll try to get down there a little early of course, but 5pm in general?

    In the event of Mike dropping Sunday, I'd be willing to run a one-shot or improv continuation if enough people are interested. I need at least two players, and an opinion of what you'd like. I can do 3.5, 4, or be willing to try something else out. If i don't get enough feedback, then i'll see you all a week from this sunday.

    1 · June 19, 2013

    • Chris C.

      I've got a touch of experience, but not really enough to matter, haha

      June 20, 2013

    • Chris C.

      i'll have a character for you by tom evening. expect a sorc from me

      June 20, 2013

  • Mike

    Ditto myself for working this Sunday, as well--until at least 6-7pm. Sorry for having to duck out this week as well. As before, anyone who wants to DM either a one-off or pick up where I left off can feel free!

    June 19, 2013

  • Snake

    It looks like I'm going to be working this Sunday until 4pm. I'm planning on heading there right after work, but just a heads up that I will be there for only the last half of the session, unless it gets moved to a later time.

    June 18, 2013

    • Chris C.

      I'm good with most any time. I'll just need heads up if we are going to push too far into dinnertime. I'm totally cool with a subway dinner there though

      June 18, 2013

  • Travis

    Sorry guys, it seems like Sundays aren't as good as I thought they would be. The next several weekends are all looking pretty busy, so I have to back out. I hope you are able to keep the game going and have fun. Thanks Mike for putting everything together.

    June 17, 2013

  • Mike

    Hey guys, sorry about the late notice but unfortunately I'm not going to be able to make this Sunday's session (6/16). I have to work the whole afternoon (for sure this time). It doesn't have to be cancelled completely--if someone wants to DM a one-off or improv on my plotline I would be all for it. I'll see you guys again on the 23rd.

    June 14, 2013

      A former member

      I was going to have to cancel too, big school project this weekend. Look forward to next session!

      June 15, 2013

    • Chris C.

      I can't say that I'm disappointed I only missed one session :-)

      June 17, 2013

  • Mike

    It appears I may be called in to work on Sunday evening, but I will still be free during the day. Would everyone be open to me moving the start time for this week's session to 12:00?

    June 7, 2013

    • Mike

      Two additional, so we had a four person party yesterday. We'll see you on the 23rd--my apologies in advance for what happens to your character in the meantime.

      June 10, 2013

    • Chris C.

      Ha! Oh my...

      June 12, 2013

  • Chris C.

    I'll be away this Sunday but look forward to picking back up on the 23rd!

    We are playing 3.5, and we've got a Paladin, a Fighter, a Barbarian, and a Druid.

    June 1, 2013

    • Ben S.

      Great, thanks!

      June 1, 2013

  • Ben S.

    Hi! I should be there on the 9th. What version are you guys playing and you need any specific role filled?

    June 1, 2013

  • Snake

    I'm still interested and able to meet weekly barring another con and the like. I just had some questions about what characters the party already has and what the rules for character creation are so that I can jump right in on the 9th instead of wasting everyone's time while I try to create a character on the spot.

    May 28, 2013

  • Mike

    So for those who didn't make it--we currently have a party of four characters, and could certainly fit in more. While I did mention above that I intend for this to be a weekly event, I will not be able to make it next week due to work reasons. So I will see you all on the 9th!

    May 27, 2013

  • Chris C.

    yeah definitely! however, looking at my schedule, i won't be available for the next few weeks (family next week, vacation taking up the following two sundays) i don't want to hold the group up, so hopefully ben and/or snake will be there to help pick up my slack!

    Great time guys, look forward to next session

    May 26, 2013

  • Chris C.

    i might be a touch late but i'm heading that way now

    May 26, 2013

  • Mike

    I'll be there around 1:15 or so--I'll try to grab a section of the high table near the TVs (and wall outlets). I should be easy enough to spot with a laptop and battlemat. If you need directions, my number is[masked]

    May 26, 2013

  • Chris C.

    Im much more comfortable with 3.5e but will be willing to go with whatever the group wants

    May 26, 2013

  • Travis

    It looks like a good number of people are interested this time around. I'd be most interested in playing Pathfinder, which is pretty similar to 3.5. I'll bring the core books, some dice, PF character sheets, and all the material in PDF form in case that's interesting to others.

    May 26, 2013

  • Chris C.

    I also have several sets of die

    May 26, 2013

  • Chris C.

    I have 3.5e complete divine and warrior books

    May 26, 2013

  • A former member
    A former member

    I have the core book and pdf's as well. Both editions.

    May 26, 2013

  • Mike

    Looks like we should have a decent-sized group tomorrow. Nice! As far as what to bring, pencils and polyhedral dice (I only have one set) would be great. Also any 3.5/4e Players Handbooks would be a benefit for character creation as I only have a laptop and books in .pdf form

    Then again, you could also bring a laptop and I'll get you the .pdf books, which would work just as well. I'll see you guys tomorrow!

  • Ben S.

    Hello! My name is Ben Schwartz. I'm from Los Angeles and will be in D.C. for the summer. I'm flying out on June 1 and hope to make the June 2 session. I'm happy playing either 3.5 or 4th.

    May 25, 2013

  • A former member

    If 4e is a sticking point, then i'm prefectly ok with 3.5.

    May 24, 2013

  • Snake

    I'm currently in a pathfinder game and would be interested in playing a 3.5 game. I've tried 4e, but I'll pass if that's what you guys decide to play. I'm actually in Raleigh this weekend, so probably couldn't make it until late on Sunday, but rsvp yes just to show my interest. My email address is [masked] if you guys need to contact me.

    May 24, 2013

  • A former member

    I'd be down. I'm fine with either edition, but i'll be rusty on the rules.

    May 23, 2013

  • Chris C.

    Sounds fun!
