New Semester, New Games. [Jan. 18th, 2006|12:01 am]
NIU Gamers' Association


This semester, I'm aiming to get a group together for some regular gaming. I'd be more than willing to run a game, although I can't currently host (conveniently, at least). I'm interested in running:

a) An Iron Kingdoms d20 campaign, which is a d20 fantasy setting with a roughly 18-19th century tech level. It's a very fun, flavorful, detailed setting with a lot to offer players. This game would be d20 at core, but houseruled to make it a bit more "rules light" and narrative.

b) A series of "old school"-style d20 adventures. Straightforward dungeon-delving and dragon-slaying action, predominately using published modules. I'd keep the rules more straightforward for this game, depending on the group.

C) A Dogs in the Vineyard campaign. Dogs is a game where players play gun-toting paladins / inquisitors in an alternate 19th C Utah. Mainly notable for it's excellent mechanics, which emphasize narrative storytelling and grant the players a lot more control than most RPGs. Fun, fun game. I'd prefer not to run it as a campaign, though...maybe as a random one-or-two shot sometime if we get bored.

Let me know if you're interested! I'm hoping to get something running in the next couple weeks.

Are any of the games (RPGs, card games, wtfever) for NIU students only? I've had the .... experience -_- of having to witness a drugged out townie adventure near the campus parking garage on Tues. night. Theres no way in hell some of those people are students. Not to sound elitest or anything, but are any of the games for students only?

Re: question

Well, in my experience, the most irritating / unnerving ones ARE students, unfortunately. I doubt the drugged-out townie was looking for a pickup game of YuGiOh, honestly. Most of us geeks in general are good people. :)

But...in short, not really. The NIUGA itself is not student-limited, though I don't know of any regulars who aren't students or alums. Most of the games that get put together through us ARE student-only games, although my current game also has one alum. Shrug. Mileage may vary.
