New in town
Hello, everybody. I just moved to Philly a few months ago, and I recently got it in my head to see if I could find gamers in town. Specifically I'm wondering if there are old school, tabletop, pen-and-paper roleplayers out there, wondering what the FLGS situation is, and seeing if anyone knew anything or had any feedback to offer about PAGE. Thanks!

Travellercon , Lancaster, Pa. Oct 17-19
OK, so its Lancaster, but still pretty close. Travellercon features the various incarnations of the classic GDW role-playing game: TRAVELLER

Greetings all,

With the 2008 summer convention season now passing into shining memory,
we've been busy preparing for TRAVELLERcon II in October.

Actually, TRAVELLERcon II is only a bit over EIGHT weeks away.

We've added more games to the schedule, and we're talking with a
potential guest to speak on Saturday. I shouldn't tell you who it is,
but I'll confirm right away that it isn't one of the Big Three (Marc
Miller, Frank Chadwick or Loren Wiseman). It's one of the Second
Generation
GDWers and prolific MegaTraveller authors. More details anon.

So, check out the updated schedule and please get your registrations in.

www.travellercon-usa.com

That is all for now,
Keith F.

They claim you can make cash by just clicking and scrolling but
..but can you really trust them? Cause if it’s legit it’s like free money!




Every Sunday at midnight the website starts the countdown for the next competition. Each week is another chance to be number one.

Area Breakdown
For fairly obvious reasons (paranoia), a lot of us don't have our locations listed. Even for those of us who do, it's kind of a pain to click through everyone's profiles. Still, the Philadelphia area is pretty large; if you don't mind, please post your preferred gaming area(s) here. If you'd like, also post your preferred type of gaming or genre- just because we live near each other doesn't mean we'll all want to play together. ;)

EVIL SHADOWS THE DARKNESS
SOULS ARE TRAPPED BY NIGHT
GOOD INTENTIONS… GO ASTRAY


Philadelphia has not even begun to level out, and perhaps that’s no ones fault at all. Shadows that lurk behind every corner could be just that, and those low moans that you hear between just waking and fully awake could just be the wind in the rafters. But more than likely…. It’s not. Beware your good intentions, and beware your false hopes and dreams, the Sandman is on his way to Philadelphia, and you may not meet him until you are already, Dead…. Asleep.

What will happen next in The Requiem?
Come to Liberty By Night this Friday to find out!


What? Philly Cam game- Requiem Venue

Greetings Programs
Greeting everyone!

I have just found this, and to be truthful, I am somewhat excited. I have been trying to look for something fairly local as far as gaming groups go, and recently my interests have crossed over to live action role playing. I am a strategy gamer by habit and I am usually not a big fan of role playing but recently, I am somewhat curious.

The games I enjoy and play regularly are: Classic BattleTech, Warhammer 40k, Warhammer FB, Magic the Gathering, various historical strategy games, and a few others. I am rather curious as to the local groups of live action role players and their activities and I would be most grateful for any information about it, how to get involved, et cetera.

Well, I look forward to posting here and being a part of the community.

Current Mood: cheerful

PERSONAL HORRORS!
PROFFESIONAL KILLERS!
& UNKNOWN DANGERS!

LIBERTY BY NIGHT!


No News, everything has been quiet. The police have enjoyed a respite, and less and less people are seeing monsters in the dark. The university district is enjoying a nice Semester, and South Street has been pleasantly buzzing. Why does this seem so nice? And where did all the shadows go? Welcome to the calm before the storm my friends… and beware of where you tread.

THE WORLD OF DARKNESS LIKE YOU’VE NEVER SEEN IT BEFORE!
(Now with extra angst and suffering)

Philadelphia was being plagued by a series of murders, a young girl was suspected to have killed now more than 10 young men, 5 of them right in or near center city Philly. But the girl has gone missing, and no one seems care. The University District has been plagued by odd happenings, and another suicide has been discovered, and a memorial serious is to be held this Friday night. The elders are acting, odd. Or at least odder than usual and they wind their way around the new prince and his court. The Lancea Sanctum has come to power within this usually Dragon held city, politics are afoot, and no one wants to be beneath the sturdy shoes of the newly appointed Archbishop Steege. The fountains of energy in the city seem to be drying up, or at least slowing to a trickle for some odd reason, and the newly reformed Kindred City is about to have a number of surprises. Not all of them pleasant or even profitable.

MURDER MYSTERY MAYHEM!

… and a spot of tea with your politics.


Philadelphia is being plagued by a series of murders, a young girl is suspected to have killed now more than 10 young men, 5 of them right in or near center city Philly. The University District has been plagued by odd happenings, and another suicide has been discovered… horribly too late. The elders are acting, odd. The fountains of energy in the city seem to be drying up, or at least slowing to a trickle, and the newly reformed Kindred City is about to have a number of surprises. Not all of them pleasant or even profitable.

Hey All!

So I’m plugging Requiem once again. :)

Come out every other Friday and try Vampire the Requiem for yourself. Requiem is a Dark gothic horror story with you as the Storyteller. At the Philadelphia chapter of the Camarilla, Liberty by Night, we strive to make the players into the creators of the story, and allow everyone a chance to live in The World Of Darkness.

Not sure if your ready to come out and play, can’t make it to the games? Play online!
Contact the ST list at VTRSTList@yahoogroups.com to make your character.

In the words of my man,
Nightmares and Shattered Dreams…

Vampire LARP in Philly
Hello all,

I'm currently part of a team of three STs, including yagathai and thomas_molitor, running a Vampire LARP in Philly. The game is called VIGOR MORTIS and it's been going on since April of this year, having grown into a steady LARP from its roots as a one-shot at last year's PhilCon.

There is an LJ community already existing for the game: necrophilarp. There's some backstory amongst the entries and some other information about the game. If you have some interest or your curiosity is piqued, you can e-mail me for any further details, such as available characters, background, etc.

So far, the game has grown by invite, recommendation, and word of mouth. Knowing mamcdowell and several other folks on this list, I wanted to extend an invitation along through this community and bring new players in on a game that has some great players and a social atmosphere.

We're having a big year-end four session game at PhilCon during the weekend of Dec. 9th-11th. Our game is separate from PhilCon itself, but will be run from within the same area. This saves our players the obligation of having to spend the extra money on a PhilCon badge if they were hesitant to do so.

I look forward to hearing from you and meeting some new people in the gaming community.

uh...hi there
Hey guys, saw this while searching for RPGs and such

Name's Govind, I live in West Chester, PA, graduated from Henderson High in 2002, and I've been attending Rochester Institute of Technology up in Rochester, NY, where I'm hoping to get my BS in Computer Science & Minor in Criminal Justice in 2007.

I've play regular D&D 3.5, RPGA's D&D 3.5 Living Greyhawk, and Rifts. I've had all three of my characters die in regular D&D 3.5, one out of three characters die in Living Greyhawk. Other than that, I have currently a Level 1 Elven Fighter & a Level 3 Half-Elf Ranger for Living Greyhawk, and a Level 4 Canadian Headhunter Techno-warrior and a Level 3 Wilderness Scout for Rifts.

Currently, I'd be interested in any Rifts games that would be going on in the Philadelphia area during the summer / college breaks, or somehow online. I also have a D20 Modern character, a Level 1 Smart Technician, set up, but I haven't been able to find a D20 Modern game.

Any questions or something like that, feel free to comment or send an IM or something (contact info is in my LJ user info). Hope to talk to you guys soon :).

Current Mood: calm
