Finally decided to join the forums, because I ran out of episodes to listen to. I've been playing (sparingly) for a couple years, but haven't really had a consistent game in that time. =( I'm currently DM'ing a game for my brothers and I'm going to DM a one shot at an upcoming camping/TTRPG event near me.
Looking forward to having more conversations with you all!
Glad you have joined the forums! Welcome to the Block Party. I definitely want to know more about this camping/TTRPG event. That sounds amazing!
There is a "Role-playing Guild" in my area and some of the founders enjoy camping. The event started as their personal thing: several friends, camping, hiking, gaming, etc. Eventually, they decided to turn it into a guild event.
They rent a couple campsites for the weekend and members of the guild come out and can basically do whatever mix of camping and board/tabletop game trips their trigger. They do have scheduled events, including one-shots (like mine), mini-seminars (like mini-painting, etc), and one year had a demonstration by the "live dungeon" company in the area.
This is actually my first year (new to the area), but it sounds like a load of fun.
