Austin D&D and Tabletop RPG Meetup Pages

Austin D&D and Tabletop RPG Meetup is a fun and easy way for local gamers to gather, meet each other, recruit players for "home" games, find game stores that host games or simply to socialize. This group plays multiple versions of Dungeons and Dragons, from Original D&D (Red Box) to Pathfinder to 5th Edition. We also welcome all RPGs; such as Dungeon Crawl Classics, GURPS, Savage Worlds, Star Wars.

If you want to schedule events please contact one of the meetup organizers, and they can make you an Event Organizer.

Great video explains what are Role Playing Games and how to "play".

Getting an Austin area game started

[This originated from a post to our forums by Doogie. ]

If you don't want to play at someone's house several of the local game stores have tables and space for people to run games. Definitely view the store's calendar and contact them to determine when they are not overcrowded.

One of the biggest problems sometimes is that people want to play and not DM or don't think they are cut out for it. A couple of ways to resolve this is to implement a DM Rotation system so that everyone gets to play. Either do a series of modules and then switch or switch back and forth every time you get together. You can get 2 or 3 campaigns running and everyone gets to play. Finally, grab some modules I recommend any of the new Wizard's supermodules, Paizo's Shackled City, or go to one of the local game shops to browse their selection.

Getting players:
It's usually not enough to just post. But do post place and time for your game. It also helps to describe a bit about the campaign & gamemaster, what sort of playstyle(hack'n'slash, hvy rp, etc). Then keep showing up, you'll be surprised to see that people will show up eventually. Also, check out the available players, message each other, attend meetups to announce your game and recruit players, perhaps even run a 1-shot to give them a taste and make them hunger for more. Don't get discouraged! Some people will play and leave but there will always be those that will stay and eventually you'll have a stable running group.

Good Luck! Game on!
