All Quiet on the RPG Front

After the recent promise shown by my initial foray into finding/creating a tabletop gaming presence in Cairns, things seem to have slowed down a bit. The Meetup Group isn't really active, and hasn't been since the first (and last) meetup. Now that Meetup.com has introduced monthly fees, I'm debating whether to just let it die in a week or two (otherwise I'm paying $11 to $25 a month depending on how quickly I start paying).

One of the gamers we met tried to hook up with us again, but unfortunately conflicting schedules put paid to that. It's got to the point that I'm starting to suffer withdrawal symptoms! :-)

Still, there's a little recent light at the end of the tunnel. I joined a site called Fantasy Sci-Fi, an Australian outfit dedicated to finding and organising local gamers and fans, over a year ago. It too has been a bit quiet of late (heck, I hardly ever used my ID since I first signed in). However, after reactivating my ID (thanks to Trent, the owner/operator), I did notice a post by a gamer who lives up the Gillies Highway from us, looking for fellow gamers in Cairns. I replied, and so did he, so I'm privately hopeful things might eventuate soon...

I have, I think, another editorial coming up on the general gaming subject. It's prompted by this post over on the 20' By 20' Room. It's still percolating some right now.

Oh, and Vickie and I will probably spend most of Anzac Day playing Hordes of the Underdark.
