Greetings San Diegeons,

Many of you are members of the Dead Gamers Society, I like to invite you all to the DGS Membership Conclave at Gamex, Saturday from 6:00pm to 8:00pm.

Basically, it's a chance to socialize, talk the con, talk games and eat & drink. We'll have food, lots of Chinese food, so don't go eat at the nearby Subway or the lobby bar and it'll be free to all members* I dare say, a party might even break out.

You'll see the event listed on the Event schedule of the Stratcon website.

*If you're not a member of the DGS, you can still attend, the secret password to attend is "Blue Rose"

The wilds are calling. Pre-gen character sheets to by provided. 6 players.

Dogs in the Vineyard. GM'd by Nicole
A game set in the "old West that never was". Players are "God's Watchdogs" (Dogs), who travel from town to town delivering mail, helping out the community and enforcing the judgments of the True Faith of the King of Life. Dogs have absolute authority within the Faith, but not within the laws of the Territorial Authority, and so their actions can lead to conflict with the government in the East. Pre-Gens provided for 6 players

The Daimyo Oni Harakuri has called his most trusted servants to him, suspicious of treachery. One among them wishes him dead. This is no surprise as he truly is an inhuman monster seeking to dominate his followers and crush his enimes without pity or remorse. He has heard the talk. Better to keep your enemies close to hear their poisoned tongues.... You shall be one of these followers. You may even be the traitor. Welcome to the Night Dragon Shogunate. A Vampire: The Requiem game for 6 honorable players

3:30 pm to 7:30pm

Unknown Armies: The Spanish Inquisition. GM'd by Jeff Pederson

DGS: RPG Rendezvous at DiceHouse: Sunday March 27th

Greetings all,

Hello San Diego friends, it was good seeing many of you at Strategicon: OrcCon a couple of weeks ago.

I'd like to annouce and invite you to the Dead Gamers Society RPG Rendezvous at DiceHouse Games in Fullerton on Sunday, March 27th.

As a refresher, every quarter, the DGS organizes a one day micro RPG con at DiceHouse Games. Roughly 7 to 8 different games are run that day, in two shifts, (shift 1- 10:30am to 2:30pm & shift 2- 3:00pm to 7:00pm).

The theme of this event is historical RPG or RPG's set in a historial setting.

If you are interesting in running a game, we'd like to have all the games lined up by the end of the upcoming weekend. Post what game you'd like to run, with a few sentences about the game and what shift you'd like.

Next Monday (3-7), we'll post the events and make them available for RSVP'ing.

-Louis

PS-I know the famous Hyphen-Con is the following weekend in April, I know this event, the weekend before, might make it tough on your schedules.

I like to thank all the San Diego guys who came up to the Fall RPG Rendezvous at DiceHouse today (Sunday October 24th)

Thank you to Chris for GM'ing A Song of Fire and Ice. If you need a courier check with the courtier. A classic moment indeed.

Also a shout out to Morgin Ellis (I know, not a San Diego resident) for GM'ing InSpectres on the fly, looks like it was a good time.

We hope to see you at OrcCon in Feburary.

Ok folks heres the latest and the schedule...

The Dead Gamers Society presents the Fall RPG Rendezvous. This is our quarterly micro RPG con at DiceHouse were we play some of todays most intriquing RPG's, this is our chance to try some non-World of Darkness RPG's. Think of it like an RPG wine tasting.

To RSVP for these fine games, visit the DGS website at

http://www.meetup.com/Dead-Gamers-Society/

The schedule is as follows.

10:00 am to 2:00pm


-A Song of Fire and Ice Roleplaying
Presenting Green Ronin's Song of Fire and Ice Roleplaying. For years, readers have thrilled to the saga of Westeros as told in George R.R. Martin's best-selling A Song of Ice and Fire series. Now you can tell your own tales of the Seven Kingdoms and play the game of thrones in A Song of Ice and Fire Roleplaying. This is GM'd by San Diego's own Chris Czerniak.

-World of Darkness: Haus of Mirrors
Like Alice through the looking glass, this game takes you a trip through the World of Darkness like you never seen it before. With the recent publication of World of Darkness Mirrors, the window in which we see the World of Darkness has shattered and we now see a world twisted, frayed and mutated, but no less scary and mysterious. The Haus of Mirrors beckons you, come...enter. This is GM'd by Geist GM, Julie Scott.

-All Flesh Must Be Eaten
All Flesh Must Be Eaten is a roleplaying game set in a world of survival horror. A world where the dead have come back from their graves. You have no clue as to why they have returned but one thing is certain... They crave living flesh! Zombie games never get old and this is one of the best. This game is GM'd by Joe Sosta

3:00pm to 7:00pm

-Gamma World 4th Edition
The D&D Gamma World Roleplaying Game offers hours of rollicking entertainment in a savage land of adventure, where the survivors of some mythical future disaster must contend with radioactive wastes, ravaged cities, and rampant lawlessness. Against a nuclear backdrop, heroic scavengers search crumbled ruins for lost artifacts while battling mutants and other perils. This is DM'd by Joel Arellano

-Leverage the Roleplaying Game
Based on the popluar TV Shoe, the Leverage Role Playing Game puts you in the middle of a dysfunctional but highly-specialized group of con-artists, criminals, and crooks who are trying to turn over a new leaf. You protect the victims of corporations, mobsters, and corrupt politicians by using your expert skills to outwit and overcome the real bad guys. Using the award-winning Cortex System as its foundation, the Leverage RPG includes all the rules you need to create a team of rogues, plan a job, and get it done... even if it means going to Plan B. This game is GM'd by Tim James

-Savage Worlds: Weird War II
In the horror of war, dark things rise, and World War II is history's greatest conflict. The Japanese stalk the jungles of Southeast Asia. Carriers battle in the South Pacific. Tanks trundle across North Africa. Planes duel over England. The Nazi blitzkrieg conquers most of Europe with a genocidal madman at the controls. Prepare to battle the evil of the Axis powers and the hideous things that rise in their wake. This isn't just war-this is Weird War! This game is GM'd by Mike Cantin

-Unknown Armies
In Unknown Armies, players take the roles of movers and shakers in the occult underground, fighting a battle for the ultimate prize: ascension to a higher plane and a hand in creating the next incarnation of reality. Loathsome monsters, bizarre supernatural forces, mind-bending magic, warring cults, and ten thousand bullets -- it's a pulp apocalypse, and the players have front-row seats for the steel-cage death match of all eternity. GM Steve Ramirez will bring his twisted mind for the forey into Unknown Armies
