    Hi Guys - We met up but nothing came of it I'd be willing to try and get something going. What sort of stuff do you like to play. I can currently keen on Dungeon Crawl Classics, Dungeon world but would also like to try and run torchbearer or burning wheel. I've also been coaxing a newbie to have a go at gaming using a free rpg day scenario for the zombie game aAl Flesh Must be Eaten. I'm based in Bradford well you guys be based?

      I know the feeling we're trying to sell our house too. OK well if Patrick is up for it perhaps we can meet for a pint and char first and then arrange something from there?

      June 27, 2014

  • Eadwin

    Hello - I'm wondering who is coming to this now we have a date and venue?
    I was also wondering how we'll identify ourselves - Red 20 sided dice?

    January 3, 2013

    • Eadwin

      Your +1 obviously hasn't been playing the right games! but you have a point on the alcohol.

      January 7, 2013

    • Ted S.

      I sadly will not be in attendance as it is the anniversary of my sisters birth and so I will be getting arsefaced somewhere in bristol I suspect.

      But i'm sure i'll eventually show my face.

      January 7, 2013

  • Ted S.

    Live in Frome, have been holding DnD sessions with my friends on and off for about a year.
    Because of work or college, we've been unable to get together recently, looking to find another group to roll some dice with.
    Familliar with 4e and 3.5, DM'd for my groups campaign.

    Red d20? Very cloak and dagger. ;)

    January 5, 2013

    • Oz S.

      that all sounds like alot of effort tow as my last monk guy got killed of.
      so i can do a red tie
      or a mobile number

      January 5, 2013

    • steve c.

    December 21, 2012

  • Eadwin

    December 19, 2012

    • Oz S.

      well i just chose 6 as a random time as i wasn't sure what time everyone is free

      December 21, 2012

  • Oz S.

    well i hope all goes well and if any of you have friends interested bring then along if you want

    1 · December 19, 2012

  • Oz Searle changed the location to the Barge

    December 19, 2012

  • Oz Searle changed the date and time to Friday, January 11, 2013 at 6:00 PM

    December 19, 2012

  • Eadwin

    Oz - Do you want to suggest a date and location to meet then? seems like boa is preferred for starters and 2-4th week in Jan preferably Wednesday or Friday (based on comments below)

    December 19, 2012

  • Eadwin

    Connor - I think the point of this thread was for people unable to attend the already existing Bristol meet ups and organise something more local, i.e. Bath, Chippenham, Westbury etc...

    December 17, 2012

    • Connor Rain O'sullivan F.

      ah, my bad ..... =S (still new to this site ha ha.)

      December 18, 2012

    • Eadwin

      Connor not a problem we're all learning the ropes here. I suggest you contact one of the group moderators/owners about meet ups in Bristol. Of course you're welcome to join us (once we finally get organised) if you don't mind the trip!

      December 19, 2012

  • Eadwin

    Ok well Bradford-on-Avon is fine by me!
    I would suggest the Barge or the Canal Tavern (the Barge has better beer and food but is further from the station). I can come down any Wednesday and some Fridays with a bit of notice. I won't be around at the end of Jan as I'm going to Conception UK (it's a RPG con)

    December 18, 2012

  • Oz S.

    yes Eadwin you've got what i meant completely, and I'm happy to travel as far as bath.
    I just admitted it from the forum title as then the next step is why not Bristol (as it will cost me at least £12 with a young persons rail card); so can everyone interested say where they can go out of bath, Westbury, Trowbridge, or Bradford-on-Avon.
    Then well pick a pub as location and i mean this with no offense intended, but if I'm going to part of a long term social contentment with people.
    And I imagine most of you would like to at least mutually get along with the group before throwing in your dice (oh the wit).

    also when in the new year is good for everyone interested as I'm available an unfortunately large amount of the time

    December 17, 2012

  • steve c.

    as we're only meeting up for a "meet and greet" and not actyually gaming we don't need to find a pub with a function room.....and I've been told there are some lovley ppubs in Bradford-on-Avon

    December 17, 2012

  • Eadwin

    I guess I just need to determine where people would travel to?!
    There's triple helix (http://www.triplehelixwargames.co.uk/) in Westbury but that might be a bit of a stretch for some. It's a bunch of wargamers but we can forgive them for not knowing any better :)

    December 17, 2012

  • Connor Rain O'sullivan F.

    here are the sites for two pubs i would recomend (both walking distance from bristol city centre and parking)

    http://www.omtbristol.co.uk/index.html

    http://www.yelp.co.uk/biz/the-ship-inn-bristol

    the second one is the ship inn, fantastic pub, very quiet, has downstairs big enough for folk music sessions and thus suitable for rpgs, no function room that i know off but only room for one party downstairs and they dont charge for it, alot of the woodwork is also origional

    December 16, 2012

  • Connor Rain O'sullivan F.

    i have a slight recomendation, theres a pub with a free function room called the portcullis in bristol (in staple hill), alternatively i know the inn on the green has both a good bar and upstairs function room but its not the greatest room (no table to speak of) gloucter road (misspelled) also has a plethora of pubs, and there might be access to a room in the cut n thrust wargamming shop in oldmarket, and theres also the pub called the market tavern across the road from it that has the perfect setting and may have a second floor (and thus a room)

    i can travel via public transport but directions and tips on it would be useful when we decide a place,

    December 16, 2012

  • Eadwin

    I've just done a quick search - the old road tavern near Chippenham station has a function room. Might be worth asking in there.

    December 13, 2012

  • Stephen E.

    I don't know any of the locations that well either, so can't make any sensible suggestions. I should be OK for most dates however.

    December 13, 2012

  • steve c.

    We don't know Trowbridge/Westbury or Bradford-on-Avon at all, so can't recommend a good pub. But we are happy to attend a meet. Dates for us would have to be flexible due to work commitments "sometime in week2/sometime in week 3/sometime in week 4"
    We can host games, I can run D&D 3.5/3/2 - and I have dabbled in rolemaster (although not for many years)

    December 12, 2012

  • Eadwin

    I'm up for a game in the New Year - I can't host but would be happy to travel as far as Chippenham for a game.

    December 12, 2012

  • Oz S.

    im glad to see there are people who are interested we should have a meeting after Christmas are there any dates and places that are ideal in the arier around Trowbrage Westbury or Bradford on Avon for you guys

    December 12, 2012

  • Stephen E.

    Based in Bath, but willing to travel if that is any good.

    Hey my girlfriend and I are looking to get into DnD in Bristol. And groups going?

    December 8, 2012

  • Eadwin

    Oh I play pretty much anything but my current favourites are Burning Wheel and Fiasco...

    November 21, 2012

  • Eadwin

    Hello I live in Bradford On Avon and would be up for meeting with people more local.

    November 21, 2012

  • steve c.

    I live in Chippenham too - and I've been DMing for over 25 years (the debate goes on as to whether I'm good or not though)

    July 13, 2012

  • Robin P.

    im live in chippenham and im a complete novice but would like to learn

    February 23, 2012

  • Oz S.

    hello Bristol is along way from central Trowbridge/Westbury
    so i was wondering if there was anyone in the group more localized to me
    (and hopefully one of you is a good DM)
