I dunno, I'm not all that paranoid, but then, I'm 37, a big guy, and have never had any problems in meeting folks.

Meeting folks for lunch or something before playing is a good idea.

I've had some great experiences in playing complete strangers off a post card in the FLGS. Had a few that I wouldn't play again either.

Considering most of our readership are minors, I'd recommend being extra cautious and following some of Jac's advise though.

Self-defense classes are good.
You can also get a concealed carry permit, if you live in a sane country.
And of course you can also go to the first game with the bunch of fellow bikers that's accompanying you to Sturgis.
Or is that just me...?

Or well, depending on one's point-of-view...

It`s nice to see our mods care about our safety so much, since I`m only 14 I wont be organizing anything like that so I`m pretty much safe from stuff like this.

I like dreadnoughts ALOT!

I'm glad I live in Norway, where the cops still have whistles. "Pfeeeeeet" Stop, you there!!

Some nice tips tho Jac, It didn't even cross my mind that people could host alternate motives for a gaming session..

Here is my 2 tips

1 "Whatever you do, dont wear a knife"
2 "whatever you do, be sure to land the first punch"


Orks - Salamanders - IG -Tau - Necron - Csm - Nids - Dark Eldar
