This meetup is for anyone interested in playing in (or running) a RPG Game...starting off as an introductory/one-off session but potentially becoming something more long term.
I've tentatively scheduled the session for Sunday, July 21, but I'd consider doing it on Saturday, July 27 as well if that is better for people. We are using doodle to determine best play times. Go to http://doodle.com/23nu8vkphfcbvhv9 and let us know what days/times are best for you!
The actual RPG we decide to go with will be up to the group, but we are considering all listed below. Please let me know which sparks your interest in the comments. The idea is we will have introductory sessions ready to go for all of them and we can vote and decide.
1) Marvel Heroics, some info can be found at http://boardgamegeek.com/rpg/16869/marvel-heroic-roleplaying
2) One-off Durance campaign, system info at http://www.bullypulpitgames.com/games/durance
3) Dungeon World campaign, bought this as well and would love to run it...it's getting rave reviews and essentially has all the good stuff from D&D without all the crappy stuff. As close to a perfect Fantasy RPG as I've ever seen...here's a review http://www.rpg.net/reviews/archive/15/15793.phtml
4) A GURPS campaign set either in a ShadowRun like Cyberpunk setting or a time travelling Infinite Worlds setting. If you don't know anything about GURPS, here's a lite edition of the basic rules http://www.ligo.caltech.edu/~tdcreigh/Downloads/gurpslite4.pdf
