The very extra tippy-top last playtest game of The Islands of Purple-Haunted Putrescence.  Hope some of you can make it:

This will probably be the last RPG session I GM for awhile.  The summer is almost here...

Nice little con, as usual. Played a bunch of card and board games. Drank beer, ate pizza. Was reminded why small children don't always belong at the table with hard core adult gamers.

It would seem I've forgotten to note people here about a Dungeons & Dragons related venture happening over at Broom Street Theater. My frantic fanboy drive must have lost some steam, and it slipped my mind. As it goes. But to the point! A show called Requiem for a Dungeon Master is playing Thursdays - Saturdays till February 1st, which means there are just 6 shows left. Includes a telling of Gygax's rise and fall, characters geeking out, and of course...MATH!!! :D

Been far too long since I've delved into gaming with another. Will put in mind, but I can't guarantee my participation. Fairly out of my mind these days. :P

Yes, your comments on Dungeon World have helped shape my own philosophy on old school gaming.  DW is still on my list of RPGs to buy.

GameHoleCon - 2014

They already scheduled next year's con. If you missed this past this weekend, here's a heads up for next year's! They also pushed it out a weekend, Nov 7-9th with added space. One con and they're already expanding.

Hope to see you there!

Question for the Grumbling Dwarf community: Are there are any figure/model painting groups/clubs in Central or Southeastern Wisconsin?  Thanks!

Welcome to Strange I've heard a lot of words being thrown around like "gonzo", "old school", and "weird". Ok, fair enough. I believe Mutant Epoch (after awhile the "The" just gets dropped like a radioactive potato sprouting...

A couple other reviewers have compared it to older editions of Gamma World (early 90's in particular).  Yeah, it's cool.

Gamers Looking for F2F Games  - 
 
After taking a holiday break, I'll be starting up the weekly home game again in Sun Prairie using a combination of Swords & Wizardry, D&D/AD&D, and perhaps Dungeon Crawl Classics or Astonishing Swordsmen & Sorcerers of Hyboria.  The adventure begins Saturday January 25th from 1 - 5pm.  

Anyone interested?

You'll be just fine.  No game/rule knowledge is needed.  In fact, sometimes it's better if you don't know.  Characters rarely die... maybe one PC every third session.

Email me direct or through Madison Geekery for details, like where I live and stuff.

There's a variety of reasons why I schedule these monthly games.  One of them is to meeting those I've never had the pleasure of gaming with.  The weekend after 1/11, I'm starting up my weekly home game.  Our group is down a couple players, and the meetups are a way of getting to know prospects.

If you have any questions about the one-shot, Jacob, let me know.
