MORE INFO

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!


Admin,

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
When: Saturday, March 12, 2016 @ 1:00 pm
Where: Party Room at 5460 Yonge Street (Yonge & Finch)

We'll meet in the main lobby of 5460 Yonge Street at 1:00 pm sharp and proceed to the Party Room. You are encouraged to send justMANGO a note requesting her mobile number so that you can call to gain entry if you're late.

(Note from justMANGO: I will be outside the building holding a dA logo (the old one) at roughly 12:50, and I will wait until no later than 1:10. If you know you will be arriving late, please let me know as soon as you are able. I will keep an eye on my dA notes as well.)

:emailsend: RSVP HERE

Agenda:

:bulletblack: 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm – games
:bulletblack: 5:00 pm to 6:30 pm – dinner
:bulletblack: 6:30 pm to 11:00 pm – movies

Join us for a night of sword-wielding adventure and politically incorrect mix-n-match, followed by a movie or TV series screening.

G A M E S

For the Games portion of the evening, attendees are asked to choose one of the following options. Please “sign up” for the option you prefer by indicating your choice in the comments.

:bulletred: Dungeons & Dragons – If you've ever wanted to play the Dungeons & Dragons fantasy tabletop roleplaying game but had no idea how or where to start, this is your chance. We'll be running a short, one-shot adventure for 3 to 6 players. No prior experience with roleplaying games is required. Dice and pre-generated characters will be provided.

:bulletred: Cards Against Humanity – If you think you've reached the limits of your dark side, then you probably haven't played Cards Against Humanity yet. This is the infectiously fun card game where you mix and match your randomly drawn cards in hilarious and, often, hilariously irreverent ways. Learn just how creatively depraved you and your fellow deviants truly are.

D I N N E R

Dinner will be whatever we order in or take out, so bring some money for that.

M O V I E

The Movie portion of the evening will take place after the dinner break. Feel free to bring a favourite DVD movie or TV series and we'll take a vote on what to watch.

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.

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.
