Club locator for USA & Canada (perhaps elsewhere too?)

Postby Harlock » Wed Apr 04, 2007 4:58 am

Hi all,
I noticed the stickey club locater in UK thread and thought one for north america (or elsewhere even) would be an excellent idea.

There are those such as myself who dont live in a big city with a con, 3 game shops and 2 clubs that are easily found. I'm in Port Hope (Canada) and the nearest games shops are in Peterborough (45 minutes north), Oshawa (30minutes west), or Toronto area (over hour west). I'm not new to rpg's but I am new to the Conan rpg and would love to find a group with a running campaign or failing that start one myself.

These days with fewer games shops & publishers around (and fewer players) finding a rpg / strategy group is that much harder for most of us.

Hi again,

If its not too much trouble I say please do sticky it. I'll go first here if its ok.

I'm in Ontario Canada, Town I live in is Port Hope (east of toronto) which is next to cobourg. I'm looking for gaming group / club running a Conan campaign. Alternatively I'd be interested in starting a Conan campaign myself.

Any Conan RPG players in Missouri, USA??? :shock:

(AD&D groups are much easier to find, but then again that's been around for 30+ years. :wink: )

Anybody willing to give a try to a 35 year old;) I'm willing to drive around
North/Northwest Suburbs of Chicago. Weekends are the best but I'm willing to make it during the week as long as it's after 5 PM:)

As far as games, I'm willing to give pretty much anything a try.

And likewise is there anything in the Vancouver area (of BC).

If not I'll have to try a web-based campaign using VOIP, IM and a shared real-time "white board" system...

Makes me envious of Jersey. If I was close enough I'd go for it, but alas I'm too far away, and to top it all off theres literally nowhere to by the current version of traveller anywhere within driving distance.

Try online?

Postby Aragorn300 » Wed Jul 02, 2008 2:36 pm

Anybody interested in playing via e-mail posts? I just moved to NC from kansas and i'm going to be playing my old buddies that way. .. does require trust on the part that they aren't lying about rolls, but if you can't trust gamers who can you trust? :twisted:
