Introduce Yourself  - 
 
Hello.  I am Tyler, AKA Lurch.  I just found a link to this group on Nearby Gamers.  I am over here looking for a new gaming group, preferably in pathfinder or shadowrun 4e.  My current group is deep in D&D 5e and I need something to take the bad taste of 5e out of my mouth.  I can work my schedule out to be free most nights other than monday and tuesday.

Happy rolling!

Gawd, I can't believe I've been here almost a year and haven't gotten into a game group!  Is there anyone in the Wisconsin Dells Area (or close enough, like Reedsburg or Baraboo) that has a established game group and is looking for another player, or would like to join me in the quest to assemble a game group? 

I'm very versatile and like to play a variety of games in a group where members take turns picking the game (or being GM for role playing).  I like board games, role playing games, and miniature games.

I'm 47, so while I'm pretty open minded, I'd like to have a group that is sort of in my "peer group" (people with real life responsibilities and jobs and families and such).  I'm looking for a group that meets one night a week (not weekends) after work, and wraps up early enough so we can all go home and get a good nights sleep before work the next morning. :)

This October, my goal is to run a Crimson Dragon Slayer game for three groups in the Madison area I've never had the pleasure of  gaming with in the past (or maybe once long ago).  Sort of a guest GM one-shot.  Let me know if your group would be open to that next month.

Hullo! I am Trun, AKA William Young and am new to Wisconsin. Moved up to Janesville about a year ago and well... sadly I had to leave my gaming group. I have had no luck finding a new one. Joined two and left two because of personal issues. I have twelve years of experience and have played all dnd editions except 5th and am a fair hand with pathfinder as well. I have played various other games included shadowrun and Savage worlds and am just really looking for someone local or localish to game with. Feel free if interested to contact me here or preferably at my email at Weirdwill@Hotmail.com which I check more often then this one. The dice... they call to me!

Thank you kindly I hope I can find a gaming group up here. I do like living in bigger city and easy access to other places. For example on october 8th going to see Welcome To Nightvale in Madison. Should be fun.

After seeing this, I knew I was going to see a Meetup invite in my own inbox. Sure enough, there it is. :D
What kind of games can be expected to collaborate on within the community? I have still failed to do my research on what games are popular in the Madison area. ;)

I only found out about this in the past week, but I'm glad to see it's making the rounds. But is it making them fast enough? Quite the lengths of a convention they are taking this, especially its first year. :o

Huh! Just stumbled across this community randomly. Looks like a fun place. I'm already fairly committed to various things, but this seems like a good sort of place to lurk around.

My RPG tastes tend to run the gamut, but I'm always interested in games that explore new ground and try to make RPGs a better gaming experience. I also try to dabble in game design, but haven't yet released anything concretely. I really should.

At the very least, I hope to make it to Forge Midwest 2015!

This afternoon I'm running a 70's unexplained phenomena RPG at the Madison central library. Still have a couple open seats:
http://www.meetup.com/Madison-Geekery/events/218662842/
This will be very similar to the Call of Cthulhu roleplaying game - paper & pencil, tabletop roleplaying games (RPGs) like Dungeons & Dragons - except set in the 1970's.   You'll play a character uncovering evil by the lurid glow of lava lamps, black lights, and whatever might be hiding under your waterbed.  Yeah, this might get a little weird. Bell Bottoms, Black Sabbath, and Beltane is a tribute to some of my favorite 70's TV shows like vintage...

About this community

Grumbling Dwarf is a way to connect with people in the local, Wisconsin, tabletop gaming scene. It is a place for Wisconsin gamers to interact with each other online AND and in person to discuss, and play, their favorite tabletop games to include role-playing games (rpgs), board games, and miniatures gaming.

I've got room for a couple more players!  *D&D 5e* (first session) happening tomorrow in Sun Prairie:  http://www.meetup.com/Sun-Prairie-Roleplaying-Games-Meetup/events/228039191/
Since this is a brand new meetup with some unknown people. I thought why not start off with a roleplaying game that's super popular? Dungeons & Dragons 5e is one of my favorite mainstream RPGs on the market. So, let's do that. Like everyone else in the world, I'm biased. My preference is old school. I prefer rulings over rules, roleplaying over dice rolling, sandbox over railroad adventures, theater of the mind over battle grids where everyon...

I'd like to find some local gamers (Sun Prairie / Madison area) to help me do a video shoot of an RPG.  Not the whole thing, but an abbreviated version that's interesting to watch.  Let me know if you're interested.

LFG. Heh. seriously though I am a Janesville gamer looking for group. Trying to find one has been.... not great and while not far from Madison or Milwaukee my car isn't exactly trust worthy to make that kinda trip every week so I am looking for something more local? Does anyone know a group in Janesville that is looking for people? I had one... it went off the tracks, another I left because of... personality conflicts. But the need to game is strrrongg... It has been over a year and roll20 well.. I have played on it but I need to make some flesh and blood friends you know?

I'm not quite sure which section of the community would be the best for this, but there's a number of RPGs that I'm looking to get rid of, and it'd be great to have someone in the local area who wanted some. Anyone interested in any of these?
Andy Hauge originally shared:
 
Who's looking to acquire RPGs? I'm needing to downsize my collection somewhat, and I want to give you all first crack at it. I've listed prices, and shipping/handling (S&H) is from 53711 to wherever you are. Apologies to my international folks. If you're local to Madison, you can also pick them up in person--I think I have a small handful of followers in the area. If you know someone who might be interested, feel free to let them know about this.

I'll also have a boardgame post going up sometime soon with a few things I'm aiming to sell.

Cross posting here since this community is about Wisconsin gaming.

Does anyone know of a complete and up-to-date listing of FLGS might be found for SE Wisconsin?

I know of an awesome store 90 minutes away, but would like to find a good one closer. I know of 5, but they're all kinda mediocre.

 I had known of some, but have lost touch now that my mother in law is no longer in Kenosha. 

My 'go to' is Game Universe on hwy 100 in West Allis/Greenfield.

Maybe +Erik Frankhouse knows about the ones in Waukesha/Milwaukee.

We love dice. Many rpg'ers have lots of them, but we use crappy containers to hold them - tupperware, Crown Royal bags, zip bags, old socks, etc. That needs to change!
