Time: Tuesday nights, 6:00 PM - 12:00 AM
Location: Uptown, on Napoleon Avenue, near Claiborne
Situation: Having finally settled into my new place, I'm opening up a table. I've got 2 â€“ 3 players lined up already. I'm looking for 1 - 2 more, as I like 3 - 5 players for most games. The table will be friendly to non-smokers and smokers (outside only during breaks please), mild drinkers (please don't get trashed at my table). Anything else, the group can discuss in person. Most times, my fiancee and I will provide a meal of some sort, snacks and drinks would be welcome. Sometimes, we might just ask everyone to kick in on a pizza.
Approach: I don't take my gaming too seriously, but I am a busy person, so when we're playing, I want to play. Some small talk beforehand, and a bit of table-talk now and then is fine, but no major distractions while we're gaming. I use the rules as guidelines, putting the emphasis on role-playing.
First Meeting: December 9th or 16th, or whenever I can get a quorum. I'd like to get the group together, have a nice meal, discuss our interests, and perhaps play a few board games. You're welcome to post or message with questions. Directions and/or phone number requests should go that way. Once the game is established, I'll set-up a thread for discussions of character concepts, posting a copy of the rules, etc. All that will be over on http://dnd.batlh.com/cgi-bin/stark/YaBB.pl?num=1227303252 so navigate that way if interested.
1.Beyond the Mountains of Madness: Call of Cthulhu rules An epic Antarctic campaign chronicling the exploits of the Starkweather-Moore Expedition of 1933 - 1934. The players will be Mountaineers, Pilots, Sled Drivers, Photographers, Scientists, and Dilettantes. They'll join a privately funded expedition of exploration and discovery, continuing along the trail first blazed by the ill-fated Miskatonic University Expedition of 1930 - 1931.
2.Escape from Sub-Attica: Cyberpunk 2020 rules This campaign is a personal creation, influenced by John Carpenter (Assault on Precinct 13, Escape from New York, The Thing). The year is 2020. Back in 2008 on the eve of the Presidential election â€œIslamo-Fascistsâ€� kidnapped John McCain; Barack Obama was assassinated by the following morning by a white-supremacist nutjob. On national television President Bush announced to a stunned world that, to protect the Constitution during this difficult time, he would remain as â€œSteward of the Presidencyâ€� until such time as this matter could be sorted out. As bombs exploded in several major cities, his power was slowly cemented through a series of decrees that amounted to a declaration of martial law across much of the US. 12 years later, the steward still rules over a shattered land. The players will be â€œpolitical criminalsâ€� sentenced under a military tribunal for some offense, real or imagined, against the security of the â€œhomeland.â€� Their goal will probably be simply to survive, at least initially.
3.Any number of things: D&D 3.25 I've got a variety of adventures and campaigns that I've collected over the years. I usually run an established world, such as Greyhawk, Al-Qadim, or Conan, and printed adventures, but I put my own spin on things of course. I use some rules from 3.0, some from 3.5, and a bit of house rules, nothing complex or onerous.
A bit about your prospective GM: I've been gaming in one form or another for 17 years. I'm a 32 year old student at UNO (Elementary Education / History) and work part-time as a deli cashier. I'm originally from Northern California; moved down here in August. I have an incredibly supportive non-gaming fiancee who insisted I put up this post, as she feels I need a creative outlet. I have liberal political views, a sarcastic sense of humor, and trio of small to medium size dogs. Anything else, just ask...
