Madison WI Gaming Community

I'm a gamer, fairly recently transplanted to the Madison area (as of this past August), and I've finally started craving gaming enough to go hunting for the gamer community. A little bit of google-fu, and I found you guys. You look like a fun bunch, so I thought I'd introduce myself.

Hi, I'm Gelf, and I do go by that in the real world too, at least among fellow gamers and geeks. I started gaming in college, and would be rather sad if my gaming career ended back when college did. I'm familiar with the standard set of board games (Carcassonne, Settlers, etc), and a somewhat less standard set of tabletop RPGs. In no particular order, I've played some Deliria, Exalted, assorted old World of Darkness, D20 Modern, Obsidian, and lots and lots of Shadowrun, both 3rd and 4th editions. There's probably a few others that I'm forgetting, I'd have to go through my old character sheets for a complete list. I'm also perfectly willing to learn new games and systems.

What I'd really love to find is a table top gaming group willing to take another player for a campaign. At this point, though, I'm not too picky, and I'll take just about anything I can find. One shots, board games, etc. Any suggestions for where else to put out feelers?

Hey, thanks. I've also been meaning to stop by Netherworld and Misty to check things out, maybe I'll finally do that this week.

I've never been to Netherworld and I won't recommend Misty (I've had nothing but lousy customer service there).

Pegasus is my favorite local shop, even though it is a bit away for me. The local Half Priced Books often have good deals as well.

I've driven past it once or twice, I'll make sure to stop in there as well next time I'm out west.

Thanks for the recommendation. Any reason you mention the Beloit crowd?

Yep, guilty as charged. :) I do know the folks who helped start/hung out at Netherworld games, but they weren't really my crowd. I was wondering if people in Madison had any sort of stereotype about Beloit gamers, and figured I'd go fishing for more info before owning up that I knew Sam, Lex, and Zee.
