Practice session on the 29th/character roll up for new people coming to the campaign. The actual campaign starts off on the 5th. So the more the merrier. As of now, we have two players and a DM for sure, but are looking for some more. Let me know if you are interested!

    Hey! Was great meeting everyone! Max was great - very patient in teaching newbies - I can already tell he is a great storyteller! This should be fun!
    Here is the event I was telling our group about - in case any of you want to check out what else is going on at the event:

    Would love people to give a talk, run a game (not necessarily D&D), etc...
    I'll be emailing Brett & Max more about it - looks like I have a couple of presenters lined up! Yea! Thanks guys!

    Sorry guys. Can't make it on the 28th. Really bad head cold. Is it still possible to roll up on the 5th?

    December 29, 2013

  • Leslie L. S.

    Turns out we can make it! And bring Max! Max I'll call you in a few if you see this first!

    If I can't get a ride from Austin I can't run game. Message me if you're driving from central or north central Austin.

    Merry Christmas All!

    So game plan for Sunday is as follows, my group will be starting their campaign, and the other group can roll up characters. Max has volunteered to DM the other group, he just needs a battle mat, so if anyone has one, let him know/bring it with them. My group will take the table, and the other group can use our game room. We have a few bean bag chairs in there, and some metal ones that we can setup as well.

    There are a few reasons for this setup, one being that the DM does not need to fight the other group to explain to his players what is going on. Also, it allows the players to focus on their campaign/scenario a lot easier.

      Leslie said on the 18th that she could give rides from Austin, might suggest hitting her up for one.

      Sadly, we don't have a way out now. Dag nabbit!

    Sadly, my car went in the shop today - hoping to be out Monday - but that means we are without a way to get out there :(

    I might be interested, have to look at my schedules. Is this a 4E game, a 5E test game, old 3.5? Thanks!

    • hogunthegrim

      Any further discussion on the PCs in play and which party they might be in? This was a few days ago - Rogue, Bard, Cleric, Fighter, Wizard and Ranger.

      Appreciate that a ton man, thank you! Getting more people interested in the game = easier finding/forming a group to play with regularly :)

    As far as this Sunday goes, Max are you willing to DM for the second group?

    December 24, 2013

    • Maximilian

      I could run a second table if you have the space. Do you have any map or minis? I don't have anything but dice.

      I have a coffee table that would work for the map easy enough, but only one battle map.

    My boyfriend and I may be interested in joining, if you still have room? He played a lot of D&D about years ago, I played one campaign about 20 years ago, then recently got the idea to get back into it - since my son has started playing since :D We started a beginning 4e adventure on Thanksgiving, had fun with that, and are hungry for more!

      I was thinking 5.76 - so that is pretty close :D

      See I thought that too, and then forgot that I was not factoring in gnomes, and they are not real people, so it takes it to 5.5 ...

      No worries if you can not make it, with both my wife and I playing, our friends kid, and Alex and his family, we had a party of 6 rolled up!

      December 18, 2013

  • Markis M.

    Just curious, which edition will you be playing?

    December 15, 2013

    • Maximilian

      I'm a big fan of 4th. Does anyone coming have an active D&D Insider account?

      Not to my knowledge. It was almost everyone's first time playing 4E, and some their first time playing D&D to begin with. Had a good group though with 6 players! looking forward to the next game we set up.

      December 16, 2013

  • Maximilian

    My attendance is contingent on finding a ride from Austin. Any friendly drivers want to share the commute?

    December 15, 2013

  • Maximilian

    I can help people make characters as I've run 4th ed weekly for just over a year in a public venue, so plenty of experience with newbies, and I wouldn't mind filling in whatever role is necessary, but could sit out the official campaign if there are too many players.
