Local gaming and then some!
Back in mid-June, I decided to see if our local comic book stores or games shops had any public games going on... and found that Twilight Comics in Shiloh hosts a Monday night RPG game at 7 pm each week. I dropped in one week to find a group of guys playing Dresden Files (the ruleset is based on Fate RPG... completely new to me), and was welcomed to join in. I was given an NPC that had been written up earlier, and tried to follow along. Having seen the TV series, I knew a little of the background, but had never read the books, so my knowledge was scant. Between that and trying to figure out a new system, I wasn't much help... but I had a good time! Two weeks later, I returned, to find the PCs split into two groups and my character's group in a heated battle with a group of red court vampires! It wasn't pretty, and the dice were definitely NOT with me, but again, I had a great time.
It was clear the players had been gaming together for a long time, and they mentioned they had a website and weekly podcasts, so I checked them out, and urge you to do so as well!
Oh, and here's the link to Twilight Comics.
