    SSG Community Meetup: Adventure Pub - Friday, February 28th 7-10p Eastern

    +

    Community Meetup - Friday, February 29th 2020 7:00pm - 10:00pm Eastern at the Adventure Pub in Arlington, MA



    We are excited to announce that we will be holding a community meetup for Dungeons & Dragons Online and The Lord of the Rings Online players in the Boston area on Friday, February 28th, from 7:00pm to 10:00pm Eastern! This is the Friday evening of PAX East, although no badge is required to attend. If you are in the area, or think you want to make the drive, please RSVP! We usually see a mix of PAX East attendees and players who live close enough to want to attend, and everyone is welcome!

    This will be our first year holding this meetup away from the PAX East convention area, so please let us know how things go. If getting to the venue from the convention center is a deal-breaker for you, get in touch with Cordovan through PM and we'll see if there is anything we can do.

    Here are the details:

    Where: Adventure Pub in Arlington, Massachusetts
    When: Friday, February 28th 7:00pm-10:00pm Eastern
    What: Free food and games, full cash bar available, Q&A, fun, swag, and surprises!

    People under the age of 21 are welcome at the venue as long as they are with a responsible adult. There will be plenty of non-alchoholic choices to purchase at the bar as well.

    There is free street parking in the area, and the venue is a 1/4 mile or so walk from public transportation.

    Additionally, Adventure Pub is a tabletop-focused gastropub, so make sure to bring any games you picked up at PAX East or elsewhere and play them with your group or others! Tabletop RPGs like Dungeons & Dragons or The One Ring RPG are also welcomed and encouraged here.

    Location:
    190 Massachusetts Ave, Arlington, MA 02474 (Google Maps Link)

    We will be taking RSVPs through Wednesday, February 19th, 2020 here: RSVP is now closed. Please PM Cordovan on the forums if you wish to attend.

    If you still want to RSVP after February 19th, please contact me directly through a Private Message here. We need to get a "final" head count to the venue a week prior.

    Members of the DDO and LOTRO development teams will be there, as will Executive Producer Rob Ciccolini. I'll be there of course. We'll have new swag, too!

    Expect time for both personal and general Q&A, free food, fun and games, and probably even a few secrets. If you are a streamer or broadcaster, we expect to have the capability to have you do something from the venue if you want. We're also exploring whether there is enough interest to set up a few computers to play DDO/LOTRO on.

    We have enough space to accept more RSVPs than in previous years at a different venue, so please come!

    Also just to repeat: This is literally a pub catering to tabletop gamers and RPG players. Also happens to be run by someone you might know who used to go by the name Vyvyanne here.

    Thanks again, everyone! I am here to let people know that we've now submitted our RSVP to the venue, so we're basically closing RSVPs for now. If you missed your chance, just PM me and let me know so we can make sure we can accommodate you. We're above projections and will have a nice full Adventure Pub gathering of up to 60 people! There is room, food, and table gaming space for everyone.

    Here's the highlights of the fun announcements from the meetup in press article form, including a hastily-shot handheld phone video of Severlin's comments. I will be doing a formal interview with Severlin and a world-first exclusive interview with Bill 'DarthCeltics' Champagne on Monday, so keep an eye out for that as well. Some pretty exciting tidbits about upcoming content for the game, to be sure.

    Thanks for posting this. It says Gundabad expansion in spring of 2021 so I guess this means NO expansion this year 2020?

    Not surprising. There was a two-year downtime between Mordor and Minas Morgul, plus DDO is getting an xpac this fall. They've tended to avoid having both games doing their big expansions at the same time (therein lies the way to dev madness when some of them work on both games). This would make it a year and a half between expansions for us, so that's not too bad.

    It was asked today on Cord of the Rings if there were any pictures of the meetup. I did manage to snap a few during the swag giveaways, overview, an awesome Hobbit cosplay and when our Executive Producer was speaking. I've stuck them on google drive because its higher quality image if anyone was there and sees themself in a picture they can download it that way. https://drive.google.com/open?id=1Nz...VIU0muZBRQE8UI

    I'm sorry for posting weeks after the event!

    Cordovan thanks for putting together a fun time. We really enjoyed meeting you, the devs, Rob, Druidsfire, and all the players who attended. And your pic of venue was perfect! I hope we can have SSG meetups there for years to come.

    And hey, if anyone from the event is on Landroval, look me up! I'm usually on as my Loremaster Ethuilin.
