Glad to have you!

The majority of us are Oshkosh based, (with a few even further north) buta few of us even work in Fondy, so you are in the right neighborhood! We have a good spread of tastes in gaming, so there is no doubt you will fit in somewhere.

Welcome. We are having a gathering at Fire for Effect Games in Oshkosh this Thursday if you are interested in meeting some of us. It is a new venue for us as well, so we will all be 'new'.
Memoir wouldn't do that...

Hi,

I'm also new to the area and also moved from WA in July (though from further afield a few months before that), looking forward to saying hello sometime.

There are a lot of us transplanted to the Lake Winnebago/Fox Valley area. The group have a very warm and open door policy to new gamers.

I am a living proof that they will let anyone play games with them...

And some of us were born here, managed to slip away for a few years, but were drawn back for some reason only Cthulhu knows.

Welcome.

Yes, welcome to the area. Look forward to playing with you in the future.

4 of us working Fondy, sometimes.....

Anyways , I thought I saw you at a stop light in your Delorian, with a life preserver on. I was thinking to myself "dork here thinks he's gonna drownd", so I made like a tree and got out of there....

Welcome, hope to be see you at the game table sometime.
I find your lack of faith disturbing.
The circle is now complete.
When I left you I was but the learner.
Now I am the Game Master.

Sorry for not doing actual math on how many people work in Fondy. It was just a quick draw response to put a regional context to our group.

If the exact number of people who commute to Fondy is vital to the needs of assessing our group, then I guess I have failed this new arrival on all counts.

Flogging will be at 6, bring some plastic in the front row, it might get messy.

Well, it pained me to do so, but I felt I must report your henious behavior to the Fondy department of whoever tracks that stuff. We're buds and all but I'm and American first and foremost.

Next I must file my report to the Non-Fans of Back to the Future Moive Franchise. The NFBFMF will be veeeerrrry interested in seeing this thread....

CD worries that Superhawk will start monitoring and reporting his unAmerican behaviour as well

It's okay coffeedrinker...you have a fun personality, good taste, and are a crack Artemis weapons officer! You might have to lay off the Euro games for a while and play something with unnecessary amounts of dice rolling and plastic bits just to be safe.

I'll hide you in my attic when the mulleted goon squads come looking for you.

Also, HEY YOU...GET YOUR DAMN HAND OFF HER!

Keep in mind that SB's attic is where all the looneys live. He doesn't really have an attic. He just thinks he does from all the meth he has been making and all the MaryJane he has been smokin. :wink: :wink:
