What we're about

Friendly Geeks of Greater Cleveland is a group for adults of all ages who are nerds, geeks, and quite possibly dorks.

This is a group of people who want to hang out with other people who like these things too and get a bunch of people together who like imaginative, crazy, fun things. No one will ever have to start a sentence with any sort of apology for being a nerd (because if you're a nerd, you belong here).

We have weekly meetings as well as random events through out the week. We'll go see movies, hit a comic-con, play Pokémon Go, go for hikes, play board games and loads of other things that any group member can suggest!

We like Star Trek, Star Wars, Doctor Who, The Big Bang Theory, New Girl, Sherlock Holmes, X-files, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, Monty Python, The Outer Limits, Farscape, The Walking Dead, Princess Bride, Twilight Zone, Pride and Prejudice, the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, science, biology, technology, coloring books, artists, superhero movies, comic books, board games, card games, role-playing games, video games, anime, comic-cons, puns, pirates, ninjas, zombies, and much, much, more...

Disclaimers :)
Also, we are all FRIENDLY GEEKS AND GEEKETTES. Please be kind to each other. If anyone in the group is not following the golden rule, please message an organizer immediately. We are very diplomatic & will review the situation. If the person is socially awkward or introverted (two terms used with complete adoration❤️), we will see this is a simple misunderstanding and straighten things out to the best of our ability. However, if the person is having trouble understanding the "be nice" concept, they will be warned and, if needed, dealt with as the situation sees fit. This is for the benefit of the entire group.

We require all new members to have a MeetUp profile picture showing their face. This is to reduce scammers (yes, they happen) and help us identify new members so we can greet them. :) If any member is disrespectful to any venue or event host, it is grounds for that member's removal with or without warning. Some examples of this include (but are not limited to) not heeding warnings or directions of the event host or venue staff, rough-housing behavior, or vandalism.

This will be another session of the Friendly Geeks Dungeons and Dragons pseudo-campaign. If you have not played with us before, you are welcome to join. First-Time player info is below. Everyone who has RSVP'd will have to agree on what to do for this session and let me know. Here is the job board as it stands now: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1CDi6AyfGEYrr1iAxM8sMpi2HPEkwg6aOGGhTAOSAl5o/edit?usp=sharing Here are the guidelines for what your character can do as far as crafting and training between sessions: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1uPxHWPUeii5iMMSVsl9MwB9ichczH0Z52Ev5UkYNu5Q/edit?usp=sharing I'll personally be using dndbeyond.com as a resource. I'll be attempting to update notes as we go. Here is the campaign I've set up there: https://ddb.ac/campaigns/join/6439312096806149 Looks like we filled that one up, so here is a second: https://ddb.ac/campaigns/join/8193411635256257 And here is a third in case those are both filled: https://ddb.ac/campaigns/join/134643435238705 Also, I'll be available to talk on the Friendly Geeks' discord here: https://discord.gg/nZmbkdZ Just introduce yourself in the general channel, and I'll give you access from there. And, as a final note, if you haven't been to a Friendly Geeks D&D before, here is what you'll need to know to get started. It is just a short bit on the world, and guidance on character building. All less than a page. If you have any questions, just ask and I'll answer as quickly as I am able. https://docs.google.com/document/d/1hqh-IehII9yKg2t9_leRS94z-riJB8iguHZ9Y-B_BZs/edit Guild Bank doc: https://docs.google.com/document/d/17JMY3uBPN9UaiNio8UFafzw4-t_9ZQkcE553-89Ev5A/edit?usp=sharing
