(We're all friends now, of course!) See demonstrations of military music, drill, musketry and artillery; watch the march of the uniformed guard; and tour restored buildings from the original fort. We'll meet at the main gates at 12:30 pm. Hope to see you there!

Hello everyone,

I know it's a little late, but I've been messed up by being sick and all the wacky time zone change stuff. Anyway, you missed one heck of a DeviantArt meet up, it was pretty adventurous! So it was myself (Midnitez-REMIX), Pasiphilo, our hostess justMANGO, May-Guess, hazle2020, ProjectHYPOCRISY, Furilas and WhimsicalSquidCo who all made it to the main portion of the meet; a pretty good turn out! We met up at Mango's place and had the option of D&D or Cards Against Humanity; but there wasn't enough people for CAH so we ended up all flocking to the D&D table.

Pasiphilo was out Dungeon Master and I was the dedicated hardworking valiant leader of the rest of the group; my band of misfit companions. I was a Cleric because every group needs a healer, Hazle was our shady rogue, Mango was our hot-headed sorcerer, May was our silent Paladin, Furilas was our stealthy yet mouthy bard, ProjectHypocrisy decided to just watch and Whimsy was our odd Ranger. We were on the hunt to find the evil group of Viper Power Ranger Assassins who had used a magic poison apple to poison one of our fictional allies into a deep slumber! We scoured the city for them, the darkest forests and even ancient ruins to find the cowardly scoundrels. Well I say "we", but Mango just wanted to hang upside down obsessing about apples for most of the time. I'd like to think I did most of the work, but I can't take all the credit.

D&D aside, we also went to a great Ramen place in Mango's neighborhood where we also met up with sirbiatch who stayed for dinner. We had great food, great conversation and it was a good night of fun! Afterwords we were heading back and both the Sir and May had to leave early so we said goodbye to them as they parted ways. ProjectHypocrisy also had to leave early, it was too bad, but it was nice at least that she could come. I will admit that I was feeling sick that day so my experience wasn't as great as everyone elses, but it was still lots of fun and we hope you can come / come again to the next meet!


PS: Some of the events in the middle paragraph are a bit more fictional; but only those who came will know which parts were stretched. :D

At the top of the group's Home page is a button that reads "Join our Group"; click it and then you're set.
Godzilla725 Featured By Owner Mar 1, 2016
It's not there on mobile browser I've downloaded 5 different apps.on my own group when j added group info or group stats it gives you the option to join from there
Midnitez-REMIX Featured By Owner Mar 1, 2016  Professional Digital Artist
Well I guess you'd have to find a computer or laptop. Anyway, as long as you watch the group it's essentially the same thing; you can still join meet and all the other stuff.

There should be a 'request to join' button at the top somewhere.
Godzilla725 Featured By Owner Feb 29, 2016
I'm on mobile browser I noticed on other groups I could only join when they had a group stats box. I am experiencing technical difficulties all around because I can't get my PC to hook up to my wifi because it's ancient. And I'm trying to revive my group SongofthePoets I started 7 years I ran it for 4-5 years but went on a bit of a hiatus for a while. I'm trying to bring it back to its former glory which I'm learning every day is much harder off my cell phone.

I'm not sure what to suggest aside from switching to the desktop site (at the bottom under the copyright of dA)
