A Message From Red Deer

So Red Deer said he will be giving rides to anyone going to Savage Worlds  on Sunday. If you do wish for a ride from him, please give him your address with the postal code. While not necessary, he would also appreciate money for gas.

Introductory Post

Hello everypony!

The powers that be (Darcy) has decided to grace me with the ability to admin for this here blog.
So expect a good bit of sprucing up 'round here as I get into the swing of things.

...Because somepony hasn't been keeping this place tidied up. There's cobwebs everywhere!
But that's all for now, expect to see some stuff move around for the next month or two.

Your faithful admin,

In other news, we are the news!

OK so it seems a reporter from the Calgary Journal has talked to me and wishes to come to the next meetup! (yay!) They will be most likely interviewing a few of you so dont feel to unsettled from there questions or cameras (etc). This is our first real press visit so i hope everyone can be on their best behaviour. In the immortal words of rainbow dash, ohmygoshohmygoshohmygoshohmygoshohmygosh!

X-mas is around the corner

OK so with Christmas around the corner. we need to address some things.

first i was told from one of the members they wish to do a secret Santa. personally this is a lovely idea. and to do it i can only think of getting every ones names as to who wants to do this. and maybe some kind off pony wish list or picture of your collection or something so you don't get them something they all ready got.

the other thing that came to mind is about one of my personal fave pass times. shopping! however we are not shopping for just anything. we are doing a pony hunt.
now. we have done pony hunts before. its a common thing for a few people in the group to go explore the city and pick up a few pony paraphernalia for there personal collections.

but how can we make a mundane thing like a pony hunt and turn the dial to 11?

well why not go to West Edmonton Mall. quoted to being the largest mall on the planet. that was until china decided it would be cool to take that title away.
but still... lets go and have a a grand pony hunt. and why not try to make it so we do it on one of the best sale times of the year? boxing day. now this may sound insane... in fact it is insane. going to West Ed on boxing day? the prices will be awesome. but the crowds will be killer.

so i guess its up to you if you feel up to this. personally i think its a great and horrid idea at the same time.

PS. we need to do some carpooling for this to work so if anyone is up for it... also we will find a way to compensate for gas or something.

Darcys brony code of honor

hey everypony.

for a while now i wanted to write something. something to let everyone know what i stand for within the group.

i. Darcyblue, will be the best leader that i can be. but more then a leader. i want to be your friend.

as your leader, i wish for you to respect and honor me. and bring me anything from ideas to some item of sorts you think will make the meetup better. it is OUR JOB make this meetup the best that the earth has ever known!

as your friend, i want to get to know you. share your interests, and generally have fun. i want to know the good and the bad. and be there for you when things become downright rotten. i want to share the worlds experiences with you and learn from them.

i know i can be seriously busy sometimes but i will do whatever i can to get to know you and be a good friend.


so very savage.

hey everypony! Darcy here.

well I'm liking how things are going with the meetup. we are so damn close to getting our first button press for otafest and the comic convention in Calgary i can almost taste it. so i will toss my fair share into the pot and get one soonish.
so keep bringing in the artwork. love to get some things to sell there.

lately ive been working on learning the rules to Savage Worlds after Phoenix Swift found a pony modal for it. i figured i would DM the game. and after allot of reading and organising i have placed a date as to when we will be playing.

Sunday, November 27th. my house. 6-6:30ish. and we finish whenever.
i will require people to bring...
dice, a notebook, pencils, erasers
a snack item (bag 0 chips or a 2L of soda and the like) for communal snacking. i will have some things for everypony who decides to play. however i am not here to feed you. there is a Safeway a short walk down the road in case somepony gets peckish. however a 7\11 run will be a bit of a jaunt.
i can give some players dice, pencils and erasers. but not egnough for everyone. i am also religious towards people touching my dice. so i would wish it if you had your own.
you can obtain Dice at Sentry box near the main till downstairs. you will need a standard set.
