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?

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.

(I use "HC" and "SC" to designate hardcover and softcover books, respectively.)

$80 + S&H Warhammer Fantasy 3E core boxed set (http://www.amazon.com/Warhammer-Fantasy-Roleplay-Core-Set/dp/1589946960/)
$40 + S&H The One Ring boxed set (http://www.amazon.com/The-One-Ring-Adventures-Over/dp/1907204148/)
$35 + S&H Dresden Files RPG vol 1: Your Story HC (http://www.amazon.com/Dresden-Files-Roleplaying-Game-Vol/dp/0977153479/)
$25 + S&H Tianxia: Blood, Sweat, and Jade HC (http://www.indiepressrevolution.com/xcart/product.php?productid=19207&cat=0&featured=Y)
$25 + S&H Legend of the Five Rings 4E, Special Edition Crab clan corebook HC (https://plus.google.com/photos?pid=5877660746483995074&oid=102653333914811527237 I can't find a store link to this one, but it's a spiffy hardcover with shiny gold embossing and a clan emblem on the back)
$15 + S&H Legend of the Five Rings 1E, HC (I cannot find a store link to this ANYWHERE)
25 + S&H Night's Black Agents HC (http://www.amazon.com/Nights-Black-Agents-Kenneth-Hite/dp/1908983396, I can't find the hardcover listing, but it's not the limited edition hardcover)
$20 + S&H Leverage HC (http://www.amazon.com/Leverage-Roleplaying-Game-Cam-Banks/dp/1931567247/)

Pathfinder vs. D&D 5th Ed. Talk to me gamers. Haven't tried 5th Ed., but have heard good things.

+Brian Ross Wakeham Can you define what you mean by 'roleplaying in the group'? Or 'flavor'?

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.

Myself and +Brett B, both Wisconsin gamers, put together a podcast and are releasing it weekly. We'd be interested in any feedback.

Oh, and if you need a cool dice bag, you can visit our sponsor and use a promo code to get a bit of a discount!
 
Gamers Have Dice - You Need A Dice Bag

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!

It is with great pleasure to announce an official supporter of the show...

This would be my purchase if I was in need of one. Because friendship IS magic. :D

No photos to prove it and didn't have the guts to buy it, but for real: saw a Grumbling Dwarf T-Shirt at the east side Goodwill store last Friday. Just thought I would share, because it got me nostalgic. ;)

Introduce Yourself  - 
 
Hi guys.  I'm a long time role player, board gamer, and miniature gamer who has lived most his life in Wisconsin.  Right now I'm in the Green Bay area but will be moving to the Wisconsin Dells area soon. 

I figured this looks like a good place to keep informed on things going on in Wisconsin, and maybe meet some people to eventually game with in my new location.

I've played a zillion (yeah, really) games in my life (written a few too), but I have to admit as I've gotten older I've gravitated more to the games of my youth (playing Star Frontiers right now).  I'm pretty open minded, but my own collection has pretty much shrunk to games like B/X D&D, Gamma World, Star Frontiers, CHILL, Mekton (1st edition), SUPERS! and some of my own games and the random thing I find interesting.

I have a pretty large board game collection, but have a soft spot for miniature based story or combat games, like Descent, Last Night on Earth, Mice & Mystics, ect. 

Battlelore is my favorite board game and has replaced a lot of my miniature wargame playing.  I do still have my wild west town and plan to slowly keep expanding that for Fistful of Lead (I did a video review of this on youtube if you are interested).

So that's a little about me, hope I can get to know you guys over time and become a productive contributor.

Everyone, it's my hope to run Dungeon Crawl Classics game at this month's Madison Traditional Gaming event. I say hope because I dropped them a line on the meetup to ensure it was okay. 

It would be module The Emerald Enchanter. A test run for Gamehole con in November. Six players. Pregens will be provided. Knowledge of rules not needed.

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...

Hail local gamers. Let me know if you're interested in any of these. I'm going to put them on Craigslist to see if I can unload them locally before sending them to ebay.
Sean P Kelley originally shared:
 
Sean's RPG Sale

Here is much of the stuff I'm going to be unloading. 

I'm going to list 'em on Craigslist first, see if anyone local wants them. No shipping, easy to manage.

Then I'm considering ebay and maybe the community that is buy/sell rpgs here on G+. The name escapes me.

I'd like to get half price on the more recent stuff, if possible.
