The ideal candidate for our campaign is an experienced D&D player in the metro area who has enough time to play once a month. Our D&D4 game is set in the geography of Harn. The game tends to focus on overcoming challenges, rather than a steady stream of hack'n'slash, although there is no shortage of critters to deal with.
We are a group of IT professionals, many with families, who play every 3ird Thursday evening. Hosting rotates among the group - at least among the players who do not have cats (allergy issues). A player who misses 3 games in a row must either host the next scheduled game else be automatically dropped from the campaign. Dinner is usually served and this is as much a social event as a RPG game. We have been running the current campaign for more than seven years and make every effort to have fun, even if it means resisting the urge to get obsessive about rules.
