Discussion article for the meetup : Berkeley: Dungeons & Discourse
This week's meetup is about Scott's philosophy RPG Dungeons and Discourse. Here is the comic strip that inspired Dungeons & Discourse:
Scott's rulebook is available here:
It includes an epic narration of the first campaign/musical, The King Under The Mountain. There's an html version of that here, complete with music: http://lesswrong.com/lw/8kn/king_under_the_mountain_adventure_log_soundtrack/ I'm going to print out a couple copies of the rulebook. The purpose of the meetup is to do some combination of the following:
- Look at the rules.
- Kibitz about the rules.
- Ask each other to explain all the references.
- Ask each other how role-playing games work.
- Make characters (just for fun).
- Listen to Less Wrong filk.
- Decide whether or not to join a group to play Scott's upcoming campaign Fermat's Last Stand.
We will not be starting a campaign at this meetup this week. You can have fun at this meetup even if you don't intend to play or DM the campaign! If you do want to play the campaign, I encourage you to post to the coordination thread on Scott's blog:
There are people interested in playing in Berkeley and in the South Bay.
The meetup will begin on Wednesday at 7:30pm. For directions to Zendo, see the mailing list:
