- Sewing and crafting and fixing with Amtgards and Pirates and others, oh my!
Every Wednesday night, 5 pm to 9 pm, the Amtgards and some of the Pirates and few random others get together to sew costumes, make/repair foam weapons and work on various other projects, and they are happy to have others join them to share in the big open useful space afforded by the back warehouse at Great Escape Games. So if you got stuff to work on and would rather work on it around people and get out of the house, or need some more room to spread out, or want to pick someone's brain, or want to find out more about Amtgard or Pirates, or need to do some gaming shopping, or just about any excuse you can think of, feel free to come on over to Great Escape Games near the corner of Howe and Hurley! If you've never been there, there store can be kinda hard to find the first time, it's in the backside of the shopping center, on the right side of it. 1250 Howe Avenue, Ste. A. greatescapegames.com

- Historical German Longsword Group
Tired of pretending? You want to know what the masters knew? Now is your chance! Sacramento HEMA is looking for students. We are part of a movement to recapture the historical European martial arts, the real martial arts, not Hollywood. Master like Liechtenaur, Meyer, Faulkner, Ringeck, and Liberi left their knowledge written in treatises for the ages to study. You can be part of it. We practice Historical European Martial Arts (HEMA), starting from the writings of Liechtenauer and Ringeck. Our weapon of choice is the German longsword. Let’s get together and learn what has been lost. We meet weekly. Aaron Harmon can be reached at [masked]. For more info: http://sactohema.com/ (http://sactohema.blogspot.com/)

- RPG meet and greet
Hello everyone! If you're interested in RPGs, I'm running a little event where we talk about RPGs, get to know each other, and then try to play a little adventure. The main purpose is to try to find GMs, that we can network and function as a middle man between player and GM so as to eliminate the stress of trying to find a group on your own. It's still really small with only a couple of GMs, but its picking up rather quickly within this past month of starting this endeavor. We'll be meeting at A-1 Comics in Roseville on Sundays for the time being until we can find a more accommodating place. Space here is limited as there are card tournaments taking place, and most of the space, so we've only ever been able to claim one table. With that in mind it could get packed, but I'd still like to meet people on an individual basis and just get to know them. Bis bald!
