Gamers in Central New York

Okey-dokey. I am in Ithaca now. I have a very satisfying new job here, I enjoy this fair town, and my second son was born just about a month ago. I am still swimming in chaos and care, and I don't expect to do much gaming or blogging in the near future, but nonetheless I have started google snooping about for others in the region with similar gaming and reading habits. I've been in touch with a few, but not with all. Here's a working list of local personalities with web presences, including link to blogs and websites. Because these folks have public websites and blogs I am assuming there's nothing creepy about my web surfing. If any of you don't like being on this list let me know and I'll take you off.

Of course I'd appreciate any more leads!

  2. Completely off-topic; if you have ever been interested in fencing or sword-play, there is a well-known fencing master in Ithica named Adam Crown.

    Here is a link to info on his salle d'armes:

  4. Reese here. I'm in Norwich, not too far from either Ithaca or Binghamton. Roughly and hour to either. Too far for regular gaming, but a one-off mini con might be fun at some point.
    There is also Mepacon down in Scranton in both April & November.

    1. Great! Between Binghamton, Syracuse, Rochester, and Ithaca there seem to be 7-8 candidate personalities that would make a lively mini-con. Ithaca is the central point, so might make sense to think about having something like this here. I'd be happy to help organize, as I did for the SoCal Minicon for a few years.

    2. He's down int eh Hudson Valley Area (Sleepy Hollow-ish). That's a 3-4 hour drive, unfortunately.

  6. I am in Mexico, NY, up in Oswego county; roughly 45 minutes north of Syracuse. This being CNY though, the drive to Ithaca doesn't frighten me, I used to make the drive to the Cornell campus every Sunday for SCA fighter practice.

  7. Congrats on the second child and glad you're still around.

    Nothing NY related to add.

  8. I am in Brockport, about twenty minutes west of Rochester and approximately two hours away from you in Ithaca. I am actively gaming in Brockport and my blog is The Lands of Ara:

    I've been slow on the blogging recently but am pretty active on the gaming and am interested in regional RPG'ing.

    Congratulations on your new job, new town, and new son. I hope we'll get to meet in person -- hopefully over a gaming table! -- one of these days soon.

  10. Good to hear from you - and great topic/question for a post. I'll be away for another year yet, but it'd be great to do some G+ gaming if possible.

    also the new captcha hardly ever gives anything interesting, but this one provided me with psychling. for which I must write some rules forthwith.

  11. I've been away from the blogosphere for a while, so I missed this when you posted it. I'm in Liverpool, a suburb just north/northwest of Syracuse.

    Congrats on the new job and family member!

  12. I'm in Lansing, directly next door to Ithaca. http://secretsoftheshadowend.blogspot.com/ You working at Cornell?
