Hey, I don’t know how many of you play Dungeons & Dragons or other Tabletop RPGs so I thought I’d leave this here if there are any.
There is an online convention coming up called, BrigadeCon. It was started by the Facebook group The RPG Brigade  www.facebook.com/groups/RPGBrigade/  , which is a group of RPG YouTubers and just players and DMs. There will be live games, topic panels, and Q&As. It’s all free, but they are trying to get people to donate to Child’s Play. Child’s Play is a charity that gives board games etc to kids that were victims of abuse and to Children’s Hospitals for kids and theirs siblings there for extended stays. (I love this because my 16mo old niece has eye cancer and is in Children’s a lot, I’ve seen how bored the kids there can get.)
Since, I’m on the subject thought I’d link some FB groups you may not know about if you’re into RPGs and some YouTube channels with great content. Also, if you’re intrigued by D&D and other games like it but have never played and would like to see what it’s all about, I’ll leave you a list of games on YouTube that you can search for and see what’s up.

Games to watch on YouTube:
Acquisitions Incorporated (Pax celebrity game)  – This game is a bit on the sillier side, but very entertaining. It started at PAX (Penny Arcade Expo) in like 2010 as a celebrity DND game with Wil Wheaton, the guys from Penny Arcade and others playing and Chris Perkins Game Designer and Lead Editor at Wizards of the Coast (WotC – Company that makes D&D). Perkins is an amazing DM. Later in the series Patrick Rothfuss (author of The KingKiller Chronicles) joins.  Some of their games happened on Podcasts so there may be continuity issues.  [Search Pax Celebrity DND game or Acquisitions Incorporated]  https://www.youtube.com/w ... atch?v=gp0PgnXXf_A

Titansgrave  – Bit serious, bit fun. DM’d by Wil Wheaton himself. Great production value.

Critical Role  – A More serious game that is played by all voice actors. Very good.
https://www.youtube.com/p ... CkC062rKwXTvJtcqFB8i
Force Grey: Giant Hunters  – GM’d by same GM as Critical Role. Chris Hardwick (Nerdist, Talking Dead, Talking Bad, etc.) plays, more voice actors, and general geeky celebs ( Brian Posehn )
https://www.youtube.com/p ... fMrrEpm9mFzuP-TSmDMe
The Provokers  – Serious Game. Great game. DM’d and played by people you won’t know, but great story. They are all members of the Facebook groups below and this game produced enough of a following that they started their own publishing company, Absolute Tabletop.

I've always had an interest, there's a "cards and more" tabletop and novelty store that has several tables set up for D&D that always has players hanging out of all ages. I venture in whenever I get tired of the drunks my family hangs out with at the bar next door at "family events". Usually get the hard eye and cold shoulder being an outsider... Doesn't help that I look like a redneck/ jock douche type, lol

Watch a game online, especially Provokers. Most games will take anyone in. I play with family. 3 uncles, 2-4 cousins, spouses occasionally, and their grown kids.

I watch Critical Role every Thursday night when they stream it live, love the characters and story.

My group plays Pathfinder every other weekend. Great way to have a low cost hobby together and have an excuse to drink and grill out.

I've wanted to get into DnD locally but haven't had any luck nor do I have the first clue in how to start or even play.

Matt Colville has a some good youtube videos on what it is and how to start. In person is much better than online, that I agree with.

I need to go to the gym, sadly I am too skinny to care
Angry_Cuban13 12:58 PM
No gym at your college?
Texas_Flexas 12:53 PM
Absolutly, too bad thats a drive. But worth it
Angry_Cuban13 12:36 PM
Long enough to go to the gym though.

Having a 2 hour break between classes kinda blows. Too short to go home, too long to stay entertained.

Also, the PVP aspect of it is really fun. It is comparable to Quake and Unreal Tournament.

If we keep growing we are planning on adding fireteam channels under the Destiny 2 channel so it isn't so crazy in the main channel.
Angry_Cuban13 6:48 AM
I mean, I personally enjoy it. We have a pretty active crew (2-4) people who log in every day that can help you out if you have any questions.
