Games are run on the "1st", "2nd" , "3rd" or "4th" Friday of the month. We have found the weekly rotation the best way to keep track of what's running when. We ad-hoc when there is a "5th" Friday. (3) Note that these plans are always subject to change; there is always a chance of cancellation. It is the nature of "open-gaming" there are often impromptu games, unplanned openings, and no shows; so bring your favorite game; you never know.

OPENINGS. From the GM: "We are building a presence in the small town of Sandpoint (from Rise of the Runelords) as an adventurer's guild/business consortium. Part of the premise is that each character who joins this group has some kind of grievance or a checkered past with the Pathfinder Society (which is why they aren't working for them). They might have it in their heads that they could one day rival the Pathfinders (whether they are deluded or not remains to be seen). For details on character creation etc: Email Mark at: • Pathfinder - GM Tom - New game not a lot of info yet but atom is an excellent GM.. Email the game master direct at: Openings • Traveller - Full GM Ben (me) - Science-fiction adventure in the far future using the updated rerelease of the classic system & setting from Mongoose Games. Trying something new; players are members of the Imperial Scout Service; going to run two or three session and see how we like it. Ironically the most difficult branch of service to join and the most dangerous. Emphases on roleplaying, story & exploring the Traveller setting. Easy rules. One opening. The game is limited to a max of 5 players.> Friday Night open-gaming notes E-mailing directly to the gamemaster is the most reliable way to confirm an event. Games that I know have "openings" or are "full" I have so marked; unmarked means I don't know. One of the lessons we have learned over the years is that over-crowded games hurts the fun for everyone. We need more events, so if you feel like running a game, we've got room and I can find players. Note also that the first Friday of the month is our business meeting as well, usually about 10 minutes, open to guests and members.
