    I'd love to go but I recently joined the ranks of penniless students and can't realistically spend a weekend away...

    Anyway, are there any playgrounders down in the South-West who'd be up for a mini-meet?

    Seems good!

    Hazyshade does enjoy gaming, just not so much RPGs in particular.
    Oh, sounds good then

    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?
    On the 25th? That's good! I'll be free! I only have a few things in the morning

    Hazyshade, apologies if I mistook your gender. Since the gender logo doesn't appear, you have a female avatar and "Haz.." names have been usually been taken by people of the feminine gender, I assumed one way over the other.

    Now if you excuse me, I have motion sickness.

    You might want to read the discussion immediately preceding yours, since it's talking about people to be found in the Newcastle area--yes, I know that Mackems don't like to mix with those types, but it's probably your best bet for finding someone.

    Mackems are people from Sunderland. Middlesbrough is a bit further away and its people are called something else, though I'm not sure what (Other than 'people from Middlesbrough').

    Actually, I knew that, but for some reason I was thinking Teesside was Sunderland...it's actually on the Wear, isn't it? D'oh. disapproves of my stupidity.

    Hi Newcastlers!

    Are we still on for next Tuesday? Can one of you PM me where that will happen?

    I have still problems making my phone work at the moment.

    That would in fact be Serp's. She was able to buy a new one for cheap in Hastings, and figured that'd be easier than troubling you to post it down.

    Haymarket, 12:30pm on tuesday, unless Cikomyr contradicts me on that, or just back at mine/Tasroth's subsequently.

    Well, I still think of them as IRL people rather than Playgrounders and I thought I'd avoid overwhelming Cikomyr with meeting ALL OF MY FRIENDS when he's only just met me, but we could. Though the latter will be otherwise engaged at the Freshers' Fair until 4:30 I believe.

    I do back on it. My event is scheduled to end at 12:30, and I'd rather not to have to sprint across town or break the light barrier.

    I proposed 13:30, or maybe a bit earlier if you want to catch lunch together?

    Sounds fine. I actually have no idea where I'd choose to eat lunch in town, plus I'm somewhat of a cheapskate, so 13:30 it is!

    Ah, yes, well, what I mean by I'm probably free tomorrow is that I'm probably free after I finish work at 5-ish.

    Rooms are booked! Yay!

    Right. Accomodation wise, my recommendation would be the Premier Inn, which is pretty much next to the train station (and easy to spot - it's the big blue building with red, orange, and yellow rectangles all over it), and about 15 minutes walk from the university. Apparently a room for 2 nights for 2 adults is £66 currently. I don't know if I'll be able to put anyone up on the floors of student houses here - most likely not, but I'll bug people when termtime starts and everyone's back.

    Room wise, we have a room in the Ken Edwards Building (apparently only 1, which is irritating when I asked for the 3 on the floor... eh, c'est la vie. I'll message them and see if I can get a second one as well). It's all signposted on the uni campus, so should be easy to get to. We have it from 9 am 'til 10pm. My plan is to game all day, then at 10 I will drag you all down to the Old Horse, which is the best pub ever. Pub closes at 11:30 / 11:45, and from there we can head back to premier Inn to do more games or we might be able to steal a living room at a nearby friend's house to do werewolf games.


    ... I should probably make that more concise.

    SUGGESTED PLANS
    Friday evening: Some people arrive. Gaming happens in the evening.
    Saturday 9am: Gaming at Ken Edwards 526. For lunch there's Morrisons, Sainsburys, Dominos, and Subway all reasonably close by. There's also tesco enroute to the uni from the train station.
    Saturday 10pm: pub pub pub pub pub.
    Sunday wee hours: Werewolf at undecided location.
    Sunday morning: Farewells to the brave few who remained.

    I'm happy to stay at the Premier Inn as long as there's going to be a few other Playgrounders there so that I can join in the fun and games afterwards.

    Well, considering that I don't really know where else I could be staying (I'm assuming it's the Premier Inn in the city centre, but I could be wrong), I'd be more than happy to share a room if need be, although I'd have to vacate either Sunday evening or early Monday morning (lectures start at midday on mondays for me). Just give me whatever info you think I'll need when you can and I'll get back to you.
