The Washtenaw County 2nd Saturday RPG Meetup

  • Jul 12, 2014 · 3:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Please note this is an alcohol-free location.

I am running a specialty game designed for kids around 8 and up.  It is called "Mermaids".  This event is NOT a kids game.  I am running it for adults who want to learn a game for kids.  This way we adults can explore how to play it for kids.  I also have to say it is a girl game. (Tracey's note: it's a kinder, gentler kids' game. Boys may also be interested.) There are not any weapons ...... although I am adding some.  The game system is under the sea with players being half human and some other sea creature like a fish, octopus, or jellyfish.  Please let me know if you want to play in it. It is a very simple system and does have magic.

Ungy and Rejeana will be running a Pathfinder adventure. 

Jim is bringing a fantasy game with pre-gen characters.

Tracey will only run Cthulhu if the attendance requires a 3rd table and Jim and Ungy both get hit by a bus between now and then. She is really hoping that parents try "Mermaids," as it's never too early to start indoctrinating our next generation. :)

We would like people to arrive no earlier than 2:45 and before 3:30.  4:00 is too late unless you have made special arrangements. We will place an order from Marco's Pizza around 5:30. 

The purpose of the 2nd Saturday Meetup is to bring together experienced players with people new to, or rejoining the RPG world. The games are short one time adventures. No experience is necessary. We do rely on members to run events and help us out when needed. Our biggest need is for DM's. I like to have 2 DM's so we can handle about 14 players. Any game system is OK to DM. There are a whole bunch of great systems other than D&D and we feel it is valuable for players to experience them. We want all players to have fun, meet other like minded people and make connections for opportunities to play outside the Meetup.

If you ever have questions Tracey, Jim or I are always willing to help.

Roll a 20, 
Dennis

      Thank you

  • Jim C.

    Here are the occupations to choose from for my game. Since this is my first time running this game system, we will not be creating characters or doing much customization. I am running a dungeon crawl that will probably carry over to the next month. But, since characters don't level "classes" in this system, there should not be a problem. If you play the following month, your skills (Weapons, jump, spot hidden, etc...) will increase.
    Heavy Fighter
    Archer
    Sneak Thief
    Healer/Scribe
    Outdoorsman
    Minor Noble
    Sorcerer
    I am creating a forum thread to post some additional information here.

    It looks like I'll actually be able to make it to this one. As the father of a 6-year-old girl obsessed with mermaids, I'm very much interested in learning the "Mermaids" game. I'd also be happy to sit in on the Pathfinder game depending on numbers.
