I have to disagree, having anyone under 18 isn't something I'd really be interested in doing.  Not only would any group with underage players have to deal with the kids' lack of control over their schedules, parental consent issues, etc.., they'd also be looking at censoring games.  I know a lot of games I have run and played in in the past have certainly not been suitable for younger kids.

Just to play Devils Advocate on the age decision,
there are reasons and possibilities in allowing
younger people to play.

One interesting part of allowing 12-16s to enter is
that we are in effect cultivating the next generation
of roleplayers.

While people might be worried that we would get
immature players I would like to remind you of a few
things.

1) Roleplaying is not a common hobby, especially not
in the Netherlands.

2) We might be playing the games in English

3) We can always require parental consent for people
below a certain age (if nobody else volunteers I will
call the parents myself).

In any case we're not likely to get many adolescents
and any immature ones will probably be scared off by
having to speak English etc.

till the 26th,

Ramsey

Hi everyone,



The same applies to a decision that I've discussed
with Tim. We think that it might be a good idea to
restrict access to the group to adolescents and
children. What do you think about it? Should we
restrict our meetups to say 18+ or maybe 17+ years old


Anyway, I wish you all a great weekend,

See you later,

Yann
