I've been a fan of D&D for a long time, reading the novels and stuff, but never actually got to playing in a game. So I'm a noob when it comes to D&D!
I live on the UofA campus, just by garneau, willing to meet whenever for games when I'm available, have a pretty large imagination and open to new stuff. Ideally I'd like to join a fresh game and get the hang of the game but I'd also be happy joining in an existing game.
I have access to almost all of the 4E books and have read through the main ones
give me a shout! Looking forward to playing!
hey to both of you, i'd be good fer it as well, travel doesnt bother me and i also could host if needed (abo 122nd and st albert trail) any of you guys dm?
I'm glad some people responded! I don't think i could DM because of my limited experience (maybe in time though!), I can also host on campus.
My email is firstname.lastname@example.org, let's try to set up something?
Hey all. I might be interested as well. New to the city. I have been dm'ing for a long time and might be interested. Either post here or drop me a line at email@example.com.
Maybe we should start setting something up? Looks like there is enough interest to get something going.
Wow this board is on fire (in respect to normal amount of posts) we have five i say again FIVE people that have posted on here in 2012...myself, sfgiants, kerok, crossedx and jillik, plus apparantly we have someone willing to dm...we NEED to get this set up. so when is everyone available for coffee, so we can figure this out. my availability in the next week is: today monday tuesday, wednesday evening, thursday evening, friday morning, saturday morn, sunday mornin, then the next five days...
I'm pumped guys! Looks like we can get something going.
My availability is always pretty flexible and I can do most days/times, BUT I am currently in finals so until the 26th it might not be the best time. After that, i'm free whenever!
So far we have;
Sfgiants (potential DM)
Kerok? - (or are you just looking for a DM?)
finals thing is fine, im currently covering off another guy at a site, so im on shift work till the end of the month, i just posted those times for a coffee meet'n'greet, once we meet we can go over what the best days are whether weekly bi weely ect. ect.
Yeah a couple of weeks prior to starting would be fine. Meeting up in the meantime would be a good idea. Next Sunday might work for me otherwise I will need to check my schedule.
Sunday works for me if it works for others, but it'd have to be the afternoon i got a night shift at 4:30 on sunday so if 1:00 works for everyone else that's be perfect
I could do 1 on Sunday. If possible somewhere near the west end as I am ducking out on a family function.
ataboy sfgiants :P, Also jillik seems to have died on us, kerok still is alivee though he checks this a little less often though, but the four of us(sf, cros, ker, myeself), are all in the west...ish...i dont think we could get any better luck.
Anyway dont know where any coffee places (or similar venue) are around the west end though as i am originally a fort saskatchewanian. So I will leave that up to you guys, I live at 122nd ave and 129th street, i know kerok is NW not sure streets just NW. Crossed is campus, and sf is west...so west central? possibly west ed...dunno.
Anyway my real name is Ian and number for sunday is 780-218-9877 (its the wives so dont go crazy on me here, just for sunday ill steal it from her) if you guys dont wanna post your numbers here you can text me the nums and Ill forward all the numbers on to the rest...and if you wanna keep numbers out that fine too, just makes it easier to connect come sunday.
Sounds all good to me
I don't know the city overly well (university... I stick to Campus, Whyte and Jasper usually haha), so if you guys want to pick a spot I'm sure I can make my way.
Cell # is 7809652336
Real name is Max
How about a Tim hortons? Maybe the one at west mount ? I am not particular but would be good to choose a place ASAP.
I actually know where Westmount is and how to get there easily, so that works perfectly for me. Tim Hortons at Westmount it is. (if that works for Ian)
alright sounbds good, hopefully kerok is gettin all this i think i have his email somewhere ill send him one just in case
Maybe someone could arrange to carpool with whomever is coming from the u of a. It would be a long bus ride maybe.
Also maybe everyone could send contact info to me and I can coordinate. E mail and cell would be great. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org
i'd go pick 'im up but it'd be way out of the way and im relly pushin my sleep time for the coffee at 1 (night shift) ill send you my contact in email though lookin forward to meetin you guys
See you then. I will be the one wearing the sf giants hoodie (grey).
hey garth just looked it up appears there are two timmys by westmount just talked to max and me an him will be at the one in the mall (if there is one hopefully thats the one you mean, you can text me at 7802189877
just went into all my old boxes, it would seem that all my previous books have been either misplaced or my old group has em. I was able to find dm 3.0 3.0 phb and the quintessential paladin. sucks cause i used to have the f realms campaign book 3.5 phb dm and mm, plus arms and equipment guide ill keep lookin but hopefully garth has some of the books still.
Sorry I missed the coffee meet and greet thing yesterday I was at work all weekend and just got back late last night.
I could be part of the group, but only as a part time player. With my job I'm on call 24/7 so you can imagine how it's hard to commit to regular sessions. There is another person I could ask if he'd be interested as well though. I have a bunch of 3.5 books and a ton of 4E books.
It might be better to keep me informed through texts than this forum thread as sometimes I get busy with work and can't check for several days. my number (780) 935-9537. My name is Derek btw.
That player from my old group messaged me back an has expressed intrest into this group as well. Garth, I'm going to send him your email address. His name is Ian.
lol is the player from your old group me, lol cause my name is ian and im the same guy that was talkin to you on the other thread? OH also max whats parking like at your place? if its really difficult to park there then we may have to use mine and ill just come pick you up when we get together for a game.
lol I'm pretty sure it's somebody different. If we have two ians it wont be as bad as my last group. we had two derek's and two jason's in the group.
Also this is the hotest thread in this group right now sporting over 3 times the max number of posts from any previous threads.
lol kinda figured but had to make sure. and its about time something on this site got 'hot' cause ive been checkin in on it for about a year and this is the first time something happened lol
We also have a date set for March 13th, hope you can make it!
ok 3.5 and sunday may 13 is first session. What type of character(s) is everyone playing?
I'm ok with playing almost any type of character but keep in mind that I wont be able to make it to every session. I'm ok with working something out with you guys to either have another player play my character or let the DM run him when I can't make it.
Also, is anything printed for 3.5 allowed or are there any restrictions? (I'll probably either pick something from the PHB or the Psionics handbook).
Garth just checked his schedule and realized that the 13th won't work so sorry about the previous post, but we're looking at 18th-19th now. Will update as stuff is more concrete! Last I know Ian was thinking of Scout and I was thinking Monk, Sorcerer or Druid depending on what's needed (although really I'll go with whatever)
Ok I'll probably go with a ranger, fighter or barbarian then.
You can be whatever you want, personally I hate the typical fighter mage rogue cleric 4 man grp. its alot more fun when its random. plus if the group has a weakness (such as no cleric) it makes strategy a hell of alot more important and my character will be a scout (eventually a scout/dervish) also points-light-fr.wikispaces.com/ thats the campaign nicely made by garth. also would you (derek...i think thats what your name is lol) wanna meet up for another coffee its nice to put faces to names max and garth are invited as well
I would like that sometime. I should have some time off this weekend prob sat night or sun would work best but I wont be able to confirm till friday night. If this weekend is no good I don't have any set days off so just shoot me a txt (780) 935-9537 or msg me here and I'll try and get back to you right away.
As far as characters go I think I'll end up going with a Ranger (I've always liked that class). How are the ability scores being generated?
I've also liked random group configurations as well hence why I like playing characers that will add more to the adventure side as opposed to just being useful in combat.
ability scores are rolled, i imagine 4d6, but we'll figure that out on game day, takes 5 minutes to finish a char if all you got left is ab scores. This weekend could work i work both sat and sun but im off at 4:30 on sunday and then got two days off, so sunday would work best
Ok so I probably wont be back from work till late saturday night or early sunday morning. So if sunday evening is ok that should work for me. If you need to get a hold of me you can call or txt my cell number from my above post. Is there a number I can contact you at?
yeah sunday evening works out, you can in touch with me at 780-218-9877
I should have mon/tue off this week or I start a week of holidays on the 11th if you want to try that meet and greet again.
yeah i could do monday/tuesday as long as its after 5 I get off work at 4
Tonight would be ok but I'll probably be working tuesday night. Maybe sometime after supper tonight if you are still free?
If not, I start a week of holidays on friday.
And your Gmail adress isn't working heres mine
I'm new to DnD and would like to join a new game or join. Not sure if I can join an in progress session.
I am looking to join or start a regular game, preferably on the west side of Edmonton or in the Spruce Grove/Alberta Beach area. Myself and a couple other guys have a casual game out here right now but would enjoy having a few more folks around the table. I am happy to DM or to join a group as a player.
Me and about 3-4 others are interested in D&D 4th ed. and would like it get into it. We have played the Red Box starter and would like to move on from there. We don't really have experience with the regular editions so help would also be appreciated
Thanks in advance!
Tried sending an email but I figured I'd post here as well. I've played a lot of 3.5 edition but I've recently started learning the 4.0 system. I'd be interested in playing.
If the spot is still open you can catch me here or email me at email@example.com
