Dungeons & Dragons [Lausanne]

It sort of comes under "free time" (of which I don't have much) ... does anybody know, is anything happening as far as role-playing games are concerned? Are there any gaming groups in Lausanne? What's the rpg scene like in this part of Switzerland?

Re: Dungeons & Dragons [Lausanne]

Are there any website where gamers congregate in Switzerland or is it pretty much find-as-find-can?

Re: Dungeons & Dragons [Lausanne]

I think it's pretty much find-as-can. There used to be a pretty large group in Fribourg, but I don't know if it's still going.

The best thing to do is ask at your local gaming stores. There is at least one in Lausanne, but I can't remember exactly where.

Just googled and found this:

Re: Dungeons & Dragons [Lausanne]

Yeah, I've seen the boardgamesgeek forum page and wasn't blown away

It looks like the gamers here are staying much more underground - or perhaps they're just using French. Now to work out how to say "le gaming shoppe" in that language ...

Re: Dungeons & Dragons [Lausanne]

I don't play myself, but I am pretty sure there is a shop just next to the Metropole theatre in Bel Air. I expect they could help.

Re: Dungeons & Dragons [Lausanne]

Googled again and I think this is the store I was thinking of

http://www.xenomorphe.ch/?v=accueil

Mostly Flames of War, but they do have other stuff and they might know of any RPG groups in the area.

Re: Dungeons & Dragons [Lausanne]

I'm in Fribourg and wouldn't mind getting back into a regular game. In fact that would be awesome!

I've got a good collection of rule books ranging from basic d&d, d&d cyclopedia (my fav), d&d 3e, stormbringer, etc.

Well, if your French is not too bad and if they're still around there used to be a group in Fribourg who played regularly in the nuclear bunker in Parking des Alpes. You could try enquiring there to see if they're still going.

Re: Dungeons & Dragons [Lausanne]

If all people that replied in this topic get together, it would be a group big enough...
I joined to forum today just because of this topic, I moved to Switzerland (Lausanne) last year and didnt find a D&D group yet (didnt look for it very hard to be honest).
I was DM back home, but english is not my native language, so I am not sure how it would turn out. I have some books of D&D 3.5. My personal favorite is to play in Eberron world, but forgotten realms is nice too, or any other one.
I could be the DM, but not full time, I enjoy being the adventurer also

So, anyone around willing to start a new group?

Re: Dungeons & Dragons [Lausanne]

hey there Konrad,

welcome to EF! i would gladly be interested in starting/joining a new group if we have enough interest. i've DM'ed a few campaigns in home grown settings but i'm probably *very* rusty.

perhaps we should setup something on meetup.com and advertise in this thread?

cheers,
-Jacques

Re: Dungeons & Dragons [Lausanne]

I am rusty too, haven't play much in the past 2~3 years. But in a few session I should be up to speed.
I have no idea about that meetup.com, never used it, but if you know, go for it

Anyhow, we dont need too many people, a group of 5~6 should be ok (or maybe start slow with only 4).

Re: Dungeons & Dragons [Lausanne]

I'll setup something on meetup.com then. I'm flying back to South Africa today but I'll be back Tuesday next week.

I'm based in Fribourg so we need a location in Lausanne. Any volunteers?

Re: Dungeons & Dragons [Lausanne]

To whoever is still interested and not yet in a group, we were able to form a small group and will start playing soon, but there is still place for new people. Just send me a message

Hi Dan,

I see Konrad caught you before me. We've set up a small group with 2 DMs, so we can play around things like work and travel.
