    Of course, the ideal expression of the Oots game would be via PM's or similar as something of a correspondence game...

    A PbP of OotS. Such an idea would be utter madness.

    So why do I feel an urge to do exactly that? oO

    *bump*

    I am aiming to send off an application for booking this weekend. I am thinking either 1st or 8th December (Saturdays). Which would people prefer?

    Am also looking into accomodation options for people who want to stay over a few nights.

    1st probably works better for me--less chance it'll clash with the usual family Christmas meetup.

    1st works better for us too, as we'll probably be in Italy on the 8th.

    I like the idea of having it a bit earlier and not so close to Christmas.

    That being said, I most likely will not be able to make it on the 8th (like 99% sure I won't), and I will definitely not be able to make it on the 1st.

    So you should ignore me in this discussion.

    Hi Kingdomers!

    I shall move to Newcastle, England, next week (Wednesday, specifically). Any Geordie here which are interested in meeting and befriending a friendly chap who will reside at the university?

    Likes RPGs, video games and geeky stuff in general. No real aversion to any universe, except maybe Twilight. A friend told me of a gaming store not far from the Uni, but I was hoping to diversify my sources of geeklore.

    In Newcastle, you have Thufir, Tasroth, Qwaz and HazyShade.
    You also have Dvil residing not to far away, as long as he's not at Uni in Glasgow. So quite a few Playgrounders in that area.

    Well, if any of you four gents don't mind showing a Quebecois around Tyneland, or may be looking for an additional member for a relatively serious RPG group, I'd be happy to try it out :)

    Qwaz is amazing. Get to know him. You will not regret it.

    Re: dates: either is fine for me at the moment although the job search goes on. If I get the one I'm angling for most I might even be able to move Up North too!

    It's Up North by my standards.
    Bristol to be exact. So, London basically.

    Damn, I was hoping for a bit further north. Oh well, I suppose that would still pretty much half the travel time if I were to go visit you. I'm sure someone will be angered by that "London basically" comment, but I don't care enough to make a thing of it myself.

    I had considered asking whether we were talking up north by Oxford standards or Cornwall standards- but I thought I'd let someone else ask that one.

    I do like Chess, and board games in general! Strategy-game wise, I prefer Go, but the good ol' classic are great anyway!

    If you or other Playgrounders have no plans already, maybe we could make a Welcome to Tyneside evening with Judge Dredd 3D on the evening of the 21st or 22nd? I am kind of looking forward for that movie

    Well, Hazyshade and I are at a party one of those evenings, and personally I'm loth to break my record of never seeing a movie in 3D...
    Not to mention I spent a bunch of money travelling around down south with Serpentine the past two weeks and kind of want to live cheaply for a bit.

    Oh.. Well.. maybe, sure. Is it after the 16th of December? Because I fly back to Montreal on the 16th for Christmas.

    I already have a dinner scheduled in London on the 19th of October, and I was planning to visit the city then.

    It was just a suggestion. I don't NEED to go see Dredd 3D, I am simply looking forward to it. I hope to find geekmates to go enjoy that sort of entertainment.

    Hazyshade mentioned she ain't much into gaming, what about you?

    As recently discussed, we're looking at either the 1st or 8th of December.

    Hazyshade does enjoy gaming, just not so much RPGs in particular.

    My suggestion for a simple and easy way of meeting and getting to know each other a bit would be to congregate either here or at Qwaz's for assorted games (That'd be with me, Qwaz and Tasroth definitely; and possibly Hazyshade and Avaris if we can get ahold of them). Unless things have changed without me being told, the good days for Qwaz being free are tuesdays and wednesdays. So, next tuesday perhaps?
