Finally, finally, ...FINALLY! I started playing an RPG, after what feels like an eternity of nipping my friends' ankles to herd them together. Off the bat, one of the players went out of town so the second session was postponed. I've been sitting on my hands awaiting anxiously to play again. We're trudging in the heat, clustered destruction, and disease of the post-apocalyptic world: Deadlands.
Hark! An obstacle ahead! I sense flaking on the horizon!
Question: How do other gamers' groups meet every week consistently?
Meeting week after week can really grow tedious if you're not entirely invested in your character, the DM, or the world. Personally, I'd flip a table guerilla-style if my character died. I feel invested. I even bought pretty sparkly dice, damnit! In my favorite color... with a matching dice bag. I'm in this for the long run.
I dabbled with the idea of starting a club at my school for RPG tabletop gaming. I asked for an application and it turns out you need three or five other responsible members to be officers before submitting the application. It's a meta problem. Lady, I am making this group to find students at this school with this common interest. If I already knew them, why would I be making this club?
Somehow I stumbled upon a game master in my video production class but to my chagrin, he'd been burned out on GMing far before I met him. According to him, he'd been the lone GM in his entire town growing up. But! He did say he would be an officer, so I'd only need like five other people. Hell yea!
