Edinburgh Gamers

I created this community because there is no a dedicated community for all Edinburgh gamers. It's designed to allow as many gamers as possible to interact with each other, share info and meet up and plan games. I'm also going to try and get as much in the way of Edinburgh specific role playing info gathered here in the biography as possible. If anyone notices anything we are missing, then make a post or add a comment and I'll try and get it added ASAP.

Useful Info

Orc Edinburgh (http://www.orcedinburgh.co.uk/)

We meet every Saturday in Caffe Nero/EasyInternet on Rose Street, Edinburgh between 12.15pm and 12:45pm. You'll find us upstairs in the seating area. Just look for a collection of people with small rucksacks ;-). New faces are always welcome!
After meeting in Caffe Nero we then head off to The Three Tuns pub (which has an under18s license until 8pm) where we play normally until 5pmish.
