Nerd Nite Detroit July 2015

Join us on Thursday, July 16 at 6:30 for Nerd Nite Gets Around, an interactive Nerd Nite event featuring a bunch of short talks and Q&As on all things transportation in and around Detroit.

Michael Schrader, an experienced engineer and PhD student at Wayne State will explain to us what the heck is up with the “Michigan Left”; Sommer Woods, Director of External Relations at M1 Rail, will discuss the future of light rail in Detroit; and Todd Scott, Executive Director of Detroit Greenways, will teach us about the benefits of a more walkable, ridable Detroit.

Drinks will be available from the wonderful Tangent Gallery / Hastings Street Ballroom bar, with food provided by Sidecar Detroit! Purchase a ticket ahead of time on Eventbrite, or at the door. (Don’t forget, annual memberships also available!)

Plan for it. Put it on your calendars, or in your phones/other smart devices (how about FitBit’s huge IPO everyone!?!).

As always, be there and be square.

CARPS July Event 2015

Central Action Role-Playing Society
We are a high-fantasy LARP (Live Action Role-Playing) group that is currently based in Southeast Michigan. You may already be familiar with tabletop role-playing games (RPGs) such as Dungeons and Dragons or White Wolf products. If you are, the difference between an RPG and a LARP is that RPGs consist of half a dozen or so players sitting around a kitchen table with dice and a single Game Master, whereas a LARP is a cross between an elaborate theatre production, live combat, and a hike in the woods. LARPs such as ours have costuming, boffer weapons, and dozens of players whose actions influence not only what you can accomplish but the course of an entire fantasy world. If you aren’t, well, them’s the basics

We currently hold weekend-long events (Friday night through Sunday afternoon) 6-8 times per year at campgrounds such as Brighton State Recreation Area, Bald Mountain Recreation Area, Camp Talahi and Camp Kiwanis.

Greetings to all new and prospective players! As always, your first event is free, with a free rewrite should you decide you would rather play a different sort of character or have a different set of skills. (You must be 18 to play.)

Protospiel

Started in 2001 by game designers Stephen Glenn, Dominic Crapuchettes, and Mike Petty, Protospiel is an annual get-together of amateur and established game designers to test and promote nearly-finished game prototypes.

The atmosphere is casual, yet everyone is serious about their goals and dreams of publishing games.
