    Dungeons and Dragons
    Well we finally decided to do some DnD campaigns here in the EF. Now if you don't know what DnD is, then just know that it is a tabletop RPG and is commonly recognized to be the game that launched the modern RPG games industry.
    Given that campaigns in DnD can drag on for weeks, regular attendance is always an issues, hampering a consitent story line. As such we will host 4 one-off campaigns, using the DnD 5.0 system of rules. The characters will be pregenerated to allow for fun 2-4 hour sessions.
    We will host the second DnD event this Saturday, the 13th of May at 3pm EDT/ 8 pm BST, however people wishing to play are asked to attend 30 min early for the briefing about the session. 
    Dedicated Players

    We encourage commitment and attendance within the EF, thus we offer attendance pips for those players who register themselves as dedicated players (You can still attend all events without making this commitment). As such dedicated players promise to attend at least 50% of the events, for which they will receive said attendance pip at the end of the month.
    If you want to suggest ideas, discuss the game or make other recommendations, then feel free to do so in the EF forum here: http://angryjoeshow.com/ajsa/forums/topic/31185-future-ef-games-post-your-suggestions-here/   If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact any of the EF leaders, namely Acepilot666, ArisingFlame, Brandykins1982, Conan or Digs.
