Re:ForgeCon??! 2 Years, 4 Months ago  
VladTaltos, great to see another Rush fan out there. Still my fav group even after all these years. I'm always playing one of their CD's in my garage as I work on my DF projects. Fortunately they are still touring these days and my friend and I are going to see them in November. Great solo too - I'm so envious of people who have talent.

Shadox, your con weekend sounds great. Keep us posted on it. BTW, I can sympathize with your situation with your gaming group. I've been in a very long campaign (30+ years) and it seems like the DM has fizzled out over the last few years. I don't even recall the last time we played it. Sad. But fortunately I've found a new group of guys who are really into playing. We've been bantering around the idea of doing a Con of our own in the next few months. Which leads me to:

Arcarius2000, I'm in southern California, south of Anaheim. Anyone else around here?

I think Neil Peart could be a gamer, given some of his lyrics. Rush has always had a bit of fantasy and sci fi flavor. '"Bytor and the SnowDog" and "Red Barchetta" come to mind as examples. Brilliant guitar work, Vlad. He paints AND he shreds! Vlad must be a New World Man.
As for my location, I am in Modesto so not close to Richens unfortunately. Years ago used to live down in Stanton and then Yorba Linda. I have heard that Strategicon down in LA area is good. If I ever come down for that, I will let you know.

Great riff, big rush fan here also, I wish we had a great San Diego gaming con.. I cant even find a decent gaming store anymore. I live 1 hour north of san diego and 1 hour south of LA. If any one knows wine then you will know of this place. Temecula.

Thanks Reydendragons glad you like the riff.About two weeks ago Shadox gave me a Quadruple You Rock the Free World on my first posted build.It may sound silly.but it really made feel good.I had an extra spring in my step there for a few days.When I read his post about "The Dungeon of Doom" Super hero D&D crossover I thought it was a great Idea.So Thanks Shadox.
For those having problems with finding gamers to fill your tables two things have really worked for me.I went to the local game store and joined the D&D Encounter group on Wednesday evenings.This has given me the opportunity to meet a steady flow of gamers.Plus I get to roll some dice with them and get to know them before I invite to my group. If there is no game store near you to do this,another way I have found people is Penandpapergames.com Its a really good way to advertise your game to people in your area and its free.Penandpapergames.com will also email you when a player near you is looking for a game or when a DM is looking for players. I hope these suggestions help and I wish you all luck.Happy Hunting!

My brother works in Temecula. There's got to be some gamers down there or at least in Escondido. That's a bigger town than here and I was able to get a group together. With all the techie and biotech types at Abbot Labs, there must be a few that play DnD.

Most likely there are some gamers available, just have not started to look yet, I have two players that will play once I start up again, they been core players and we have been playing togther for 20 years I will pick up a few more once we start up again after I get my game room done. We used to gather and play at my brothers house in escondido, but with gas prices over $4.00 a gallon, it was costing me 20 dollars in gas every friday to play. So now we kinda disbanded as of late. We will start up agian once my game room is done and we will most likely go to a twice a month game day.that way we will make it a all day / all night event. CAN'T WAIT.

GAME ON

I will be going to the 5th Gary Con in March in Lake Geneva, WI....Zaltar will also come! That would be a good place for Dwarven Forge'ers to assemble perhaps....I play 1st Edition, for me the game is not about the numbers, it's about having fun, pretty much hack and slash and roleplaying as your character, in character....I haven't worked out the details yet, but I may run more than one game...I would also like to play in some Dwarven Forge If that was possible:)

Re:ForgeCon??! 2 Years, 3 Months ago  
I would love to play and would be willing to travel... Keep us posted...

Ol' Joel or Letum Fortis would love to make an appearance.

Ol' Joel, LG human Ranger past his prime, Worked him from 1st to high teens in 3 systems now. Love his personality... Black or White... "If it ain't natural... it ain't for Ol' Joel"

Letum Fortis, CN Halfling rogue with a cool not good for hack and slash but fun to roleplay skill set. Think of the guys from jabbawockeez but on crack and ready to kill... Run, Jump, Dance, oh and kill. "Why do I where a mask when I end someone's time on this rock... Well I do not want them to remember my face on their way to the afterlife and presumably they will not be able to haunt me." another quote "I do not do anything unless I do it with a flair and it is artistically challenging."

Re:ForgeCon??! 1 Year, 3 Months ago  
Hi all, since the topic came up again in another thread, and there seems to be a fair number of California, I thought I would let you all know that I'm heading to the above mentioned Strategicon (in LA, very close to LAX) this weekend.

I'll be running Paizo's Pathfinder Rise of the Runelords, part 2 on Saturday, and will plan to bring out some of my DF for that.

I'll ask the organizers too about the possibility of having a side room which we could have a dedicated DF space (that could be separately locked at night maybe?) for the next one in Feb 2014.
