Da Rules

--We're a laid-back group of players and developers who want to chill and have a good time, so in order to maintain a welcoming and hostility-free environment, here are some things that you shouldn't do in our group: hating on or joking about individual character traits or identities (race, gender, sex, orientation, neurotype, etc.), rape and other jokes that can trigger individuals with PTSD, and content with the intent of upsetting, offending or provoking other groups or individuals. These things are uncool and have no place in our group.

--Try not to be elitist or snobby; everyone has different tastes, and our group includes both casual players and seasoned tournament vets. Neither is more sophisticated or correct in their tastes than the other, so there's no need to act otherwise.

Gaming in Public DC (Continental Beer Garden AND Discord)

Games, drinks, and friends. That's the Gaming in Public way! We are slowly transitioning from our online-only quaranteen-ups to in-person once again. But many are understandably worried, so we will attempt to simulcast the in-person meetings at Continental Beer Garden on our discord channel. Come to the venue or jump in the discord: https://discord.gg/KNFafb3
