From I-40 from the East:
Take I-40 to the Gorman St exit. At the bottom of the exit ramp turn toward Raleigh (not tryon). I think it's a Left. Follow this to Avent Ferry Road and turn Right. Follow Avent Ferry Road across Western and it will dump you literally in front of the Student Center. To park, take a Right at the mutilated T intersection and there will be a parking lot on your left down the street.

From the West: Take I-40 to the Wade Avenue exit in Raleigh. Follow Wade Avenue until you reach Faircloth. Take a Right on Faircloth. Turn Left onto Hillsborough Street and follow until you reach campus. Turn Right onto Dan Allen Drive. You go under the overpass and then you'll pass a small parking lot on the left. Take your Next Left (I think it's Cates). Next Light you come to you'll see the Student Center on your Left. To park, follow the road straight across and there is a parking lot on your left down the street.

If you're coming from Raleigh, take the beltline (I440) to Hillsborough street and follow the directions for "from the west".

I'm in Concord, just north of Charlotte, but I wouldn't mind attending something in Cary. I could run a 3E game if you want. However, it would have to be planned at least a couple of months ahead of time, so I could make arrangements for my kids (and get some projects I'm in the middle of finished).

If there is enough interest on the thread, pick a date, and see who can make it. Sounds like the Fallen Orc would be a logical first place to do it, even if you have enough for the community center. If there are too many people, then you can organize a second event for a fee at a larger place; but I would start small.

Wonderful!

Abso-freakin-lutely! I live in Cary and desperately want to find a game group to play with. This would be a great opportunity to meet other gamers and maybe hook up with a group. Count me in.

Where is the Fallen Orc?

I'm willing to help how I can to support this.

Thanks.

I'm glad to see all the responses so far.

For anybody interested, Fallen Orc Games is located in the old Kroger shopping center (the Kroger ain't there any more) at the intersection of Kildaire Farm Road and Maynard Road.

Like Pielorinho/Daniel, I live in the western part of the state (about 15 mins from Asheville). My dad lives in Durham and so does my sister-in-law, so I'm there infrequently. I'd be interested, but it all depends on date and location. I'll keep checking the thread.

Thanks for the info on the Fallen Orc. I just went there during lunch to have a look-see. Nice little place -- not a dump hole-in-the-wall like some small, owner-operated game (and comic) stores.

He is a gamer himself, and apparently wants to talk about the game(s). Cool. I will buy all my game book and minis from him. [An added bonus: he doesn't shrink wrap his books; let's you look through them without having to ask permission.]

I bought a pack of minis today.

Great Idea

I'm a student at NC State (big surprise :D) and I could probably get us free space on campus if I had enough notice. I'm president of the student SCA chapter and can reserve space through our "club."

Definately interested in a game day, it sounds like a lot of fun!

If we wind up with a largeish group (I'm thinking anything bigger than 25 people), having it at NCSU campus might be our best bet. Especially if we could get the space for free or for relatively low cost.

The community center I'm talking about is south of Cary about half way to Holly Springs. It is easily large enough to accomodate any group I could foresee us having. I'm familiar with the cost because my sister is having her wedding reception there later this year.

As far as trying to set up a time, I say we let the thread run for another day or so and see how many folks check in. Once we have a better grasp of how many people we are talking about we should be able to pick a venue. Then we'll have an idea about how much notice we need.

Gladiatorial game

How about I propose an event I'd be willing to oversee.

Everyone who is coming brings a gladiator PC. During the game day, I'd referee fight matches between the PC's. The overall winner could receive some kind of prize. Maybe just the applause of the game day revellers, or maybe a gift cert to a game store (all depending on how many people show up).

If this sounds like a good idea for an event for the day, I'll make another thread to get ideas on how to run it.

The more I sit here and think about it, the more fun it seems it would be. It would be so easy. And it might even be fun for spectators.

I can reserve space at Talley Student Center on NCSU campus for free, although they tend to book early, so that's very date dependant. I can reserve space for the current semester in the academic buildings on campus. (also free) So basically it depends on whether we're talking short-term scheduling (use academic space) or long-term scheduling (use talley), but they are both free :)

As for a head count, I could probably bring 7-10 people who don't read the boards, and I could post a message on the local game shop's peg board.

Glad I just happened to check the boards today. If we can schedule it out, I should be able to attend. Thanks for the directions, Rel. I'll be riding past the Orc tonight, so I'll stop and give it a run-through.

If it's convenient, my parents give the thumbs-up, and none of you mind a 14 year old ubernerd, I'd love to participate. :)
