Happy Birthday, Pen & Paper Games!

Pen & Paper Games officially opened it's doors on September 24th, 2006, marking today as the site's two-year anniversary. Simultaneously, we also reached our 5,000th registration today! I'd like to thank all of you here at P&PG for helping make this site such a success. Truly, although I may have provided a framework for the community and our Player Registry, all of the nifty tools and wizbangs would be worthless without you all -- who make this such a great community.

In honor of the site's birthday, we will be having a get together here in Seattle. If you are in the area, we'd love to have you join us this Saturday, September 27th at 2pm. You can find location information and RSVP here: http://www.penandpapergames.com/forums/calendar.php?do=getinfo&day=2008-9-27&e=3239&c=1

Estas son las maņanitas que cantaba el Rey David,
Hoy por ser dia de tu santo te las cantamos a ti ....

Despierta PNPG .... despierta, mira que ya amanecio!
Ya los pajarillos cantan, la luna ya se metio ...


Happy Birthday!

Had a great time meeting you all, good to put faces to names. Ate some pizza, drank some soda, and got into a few inn-fights!

As promised, here are the pictures from the first ever Seattle Area P&PG's Get-Together. For being our first ever gathering, we got a pretty great turn out.


I'm not a great photo taker, so I really have to take two or more shots of everything... And, if I was a good photographer, I'd probably have had people actually look towards the camera :o


And here's my group, such as they are... It's amazing that they came, since they're all mad at me for recently cutting our games back to biweekly.


In honor of Pen & Paper Game's 2nd birthday, we gave away an autographed copy of the 4th edition Player's Handbook. To pick the winner, everyone rolled a fresh d20 from the Games and Gizmos dice bin. It was a close one. Jon, one of my players actually, and Cybit had to roll off after they boy rolled a 19. Cybit followed up on the second roll with natural-20 for the win!


Jon may not have won the autographed Player's Handbook, but he did followup with yet another 19 to win a $10 gift card to Games & Gizmos... Which he used to buy a much needed copy of the 4e PHB, to the joy of the rest of our gaming group :)


And Steve855 scored the second $10 gift card at Games & Gizmos. Not sure what he bought with it -- I hope it was something good!

Had a great time, even if I didn't win anything. But what inspired me to post a response is the fact that we added two great new players to our group, bringing a new vibrancy and excitement to the group which had been suffering for a long time! I am *so* glad I made the effort to come to the gathering!
