Necromunda in Reno is still alive and doing pretty well, if my thoughts on the subject are to be believed.
The game mentioned in the last post went really well as a refresher for our existing group members, and as an introductory game for a potential new member. A friend of one of the members has played Warhammer 40,000 in the past (he mentioned playing games a number of years ago), and he got a taste of a Necromunda game, playing my Cawdor gang Nex Manus Imperator against the Delaque gang KFC's Voodoo Posse. The result was a four-round loss for the new guy and NMI but he enjoyed himself immensely and we had a good game all around, the four of us helping to explain the game mechanics and make suggestions, as well as talking a fair amount of trash and cracking jokes.
Hopefully this will be a more or less permanent addition to the club roster. In addition to this new player, I've gotten word from a couple of Necromunda gamers in the area who just got started playing and have expressed interest in meeting up to have a game or two. With this in mind, I'd like to extend the invitation to other interested gamers in the Reno-Sparks area (or further out if you feel like making the trip).
Our meetup will be taking place at Heroes Hobbies and Games on Baring Blvd. in Sparks, NV, on Sunday, July 12 between 4:00pm and going until closing time at Heroes (about 9:00). We're hoping to get two games running at once, but we will run at least one game regardless of turnout. If you are interested in joining us, I'd love to know about it, so feel free to leave a comment for me here at the blog with some contact info, and I'll try to coordinate as best as I can.
Our group has four table-ready gangs available along with a handful of creatures, hazards, and hired guns, but if you have a gang available (table-ready or not) please bring it along, as well as rosters, notes, etc. I hope that this gaming session can serve as a bit of a recruitment Q&A as well as a meet-and-greet/orientation, so even a casual interest in the game is welcome.
Well, that's it for the time being but keep an eye on this blog. I'm having problems with my PC at home, but once that's sorted I hope to post up more frequently and include some workbench photos as well as proposed "permanent" hired guns and other rules ideas I've been mulling over.
