North of Boston, MA

I am looking for any Eclipse Phase players who are either North of Boston (MA/USA) or can get there easily; having played a session in Cambridge which I enjoyed but would like to gather a group which is easier to get to.

I also live north of Boston and am looking for a game. I PM'd Jame to see if he's still looking, and I'm also interested in events happening in the Boston area. Anyone know about open one-shots or think there might be interest in having one to attract players?

Well, as soon as I can print out the quick-start, I'm going to set something up at Toys N Things. I'll keep this thread updated in case anyone is interested.

I'm north of Boston and my regular group has played some Eclipse Phase. I don't have time to take on another regular group, but could probably do a one-shot here and there. I'm available evenings, Tue, Weds, Thurs.

Hey Everyone, we have an Eclipse Phase group starting up in Cambridge/Allston. Send me an email at seatac11 via gmail. Two of the players in our group were in a previous EP group (one that I ran, although now the other guy is the GM) and the other two players are D&D players who we're trying to convert.

We meet Thursdays at 6. Red-Line accessible btw.

I would love to but I can't make it to Cambridge; I'm coming from Lynn and using the MBTA. So it's a bit too expensive (*not* time consuming*) for me right now.

Re: North of Boston, MA

We just had the funniest RPG session I've ever had. Our group was heading down the Elevator from Phobos to Mars' surface, when we got hit by a minor meteor shower. Our GM had just intended that to be innocent flavor text (the pilot of the craft told us to enjoy the meteor shower) but one of the PCs decided to try and "help" us avoid it by hacking into the system and taking over the controls, speeding us up and then accidentally disabling the breaks. It resulted in us stealing some orbital divers' high-alt parachutes and escaping before the elevator crashed.

Less than a game-day later our group had botched a delivery and was eaten by an exsurgent nanoswarm. My character, the last one alive, had barely enough time (thanks to immunogenic armor coating) to fire off a quick text message to an NPC associate letting him know how we died, so we could get restored from backups quickly despite leaving no corpses.

A literal and figurative crash and burn of an adventure. Very, very fun, and I'm glad to have met such an exciting and interesting player right here on the official forum!

I could be up for a one-off or a few (hard to balance time with other commitments). You can reach me at william.nourse at google mail

I still maintain we'd have all been killed by those meteors if I hadn't hacked the elevator. :)

If you guys can make it over to Danvers I'm going to try to set up a game day of EP at my local game store, Toys N Things. Gotta talk to the guy who owns it, so I'll tell more when I have more info.

(Adept, I did reply to your PM, but never got any response to it; what happened?)

More excitement is always better than less, indeed! I'll just remake my character with more survival tools and a built-in parachute, just in case.

I would definitely be up for that (schedule permitting of course). I've got at least one other person who would probably be interested as wel.

If you mean in Danvers, then let's see what we can set up. I'd love to get in on an EP game around here.

Yes, can do Danvers - evenings better than weekends usually, but with enough notice, can probably swing it.

Re: North of Boston, MA

I'm up for anything except mondays and fridays. Mondays I might go for Battletech, and Fridays are ALWAYS and let me be clear ALWAYS packed with Friday Night Magic.

Hmmm. I should send you a PM about this.

Octomorph, have you checked your inbox?

Hmmm...

Well, it seems I'm still looking for a game of Eclipse Phase on the North Shore area of Massachusetts.

I would even be interested in dropping in occasionally on games that are playing in further areas, such as Boston/MBTA-area.

Jame, you can borrow the poster I made and put it up in your local game shops. Hopefully you'll find something way up there in Lynn!

Re: North of Boston, MA

Thanks; I'll take it and post it, but I don't expect anything (I'm still waiting for Octomorph to reply to my last PM).

EDIT: I seem to not comprehend how to get that poster off the internet; is there any other way you could send it to me?

I would love to find an Eclipse Phase group in the area. I live in Exeter, NH so I am close to Boston. I am available on the weekends only, because I work two jobs during the week. Online play is also an option.
