This forum was used by my group right after Katrina and I made some public areas for the general public.    It served its purpose but now gaming stores have opened and are a better place to find active gamers.

Hello everybody,

I am French (Paris) so sorry for my English.

I am preparing a big contemporary campaign (setting : FBI members in January – February 2017 - True Detective S01 style) with an important part going on in Nola.
I have read CoC New Orleans Guidebook, NOLA World of Darkness rpg, Hoodoo Blues rpg but I don’t found exactly what I want.
I have never visited Big Easy and I would like some informations to be more credible in my descriptions.
I've been looking for a lot of tourist sites too but I would like your informations as a rpg players living at NOLA.

So By the Garry’s Great Dices, I therefore invoke the Sacred spirit of the rpg and the solidarity of its gamers !  Smiley

If you have the kindness to give me info, it would be very cool on your part.

1) I use this map:

Can you give me an opinion on these areas, what is there, what type of population, standard of living, cool stuff and, of course, dangers and all things I can add for rpg.
In short all, the information necessary for a gamemaster when  PCs’s will go to these areas. I do not need 200,000 words each time. Just few keywords to know and understand the atmosphere will be great.

2) What is the NOLA situation since Katrina? Is everything rebuilt ? Do you still have many devastated areas ? What the majors evolutions for you ?

3) It is often said that NOLA's police are corrupt and racist. What are your impressions of the subject? I do not want to make a polemic on the subject. But when you live far from a city, you often have false ideas. For example, Paris is not a battlefield  with ISIS terrorists on each corners and we live quite normally. Do not believe FoxNews!  Wink

4) Same for gangs, drugs and violence in NOLA. If you have gang names and more generally information about criminal activities in NOLA... Don't want murder ratio but your ideas as true people and rpg masters and players who begin an adventure here.

5) my campagne happens during January-February 2017 : You talked about what to Nola at this time ? facts, events, in short the morning news ...

6) My PCs are FBI agents. If I have found a lot of things at the national level, I have nothing at NOLA level (except the address and name of the director). Do you know where I can find information about the local office, its structure, composition and what it usually works on.

7) Much of my story is going to happen in the 3rd NOPD District.

Can you give me more detailled informations  about this district (population, etc...) ? Same thing concerning NOPD 3rd district and the criminality.

Well, that's all for the moment...
Thank you by advance for your answers and Lâchez pas la patateCheesy

For yugioh I would try +1 gaming in Metairie.

For new players for D&D if you don't get any luck at the game stores pm me.  I run a game that alternates between the westback and north shore.

I am new to tabletop gaming and am looking for a friendly group willing to be patient with a novice Smiley I have experience with improv theatre and a fairly flexible schedule.  I'm on the westbank but am willing to come into the city. Thanks

It occurred to me this last session I hadn’t fully explained to the group my perspective on D&D. The encounter with the pack of raptors clued me into something that I’m not entirely sure I’ve communicated. Many times (and especially for random encounters) I don’t spoon feed encounters to the players. I don’t expect that any encounter you happen to come across is either “balanced for your level” or capable for you to defeat. It is entirely possible to get into a situation totally above your head.  Consider the “reality of the circumstances” and try to act accordingly. I see my role as “set up the world and narrate the interactions with it.” I don’t try to kill your characters though I’m not going to save you from yourselves.

I try to place 4 or 5 adventure options in front of you guys and let you decide what you want to tackle. Some stuff is hinted to you several levels above your level. I don’t care which threads you pick up and decide to pursue (though I do like to know ahead of time so I know what to bring.)  The clock is always ticking and events move off screen. If you decide to travel to the Dwarf strong hold of “Flairveyah” to look for the Hammer of Thrum that’s up to you.  If you look to travel to the land of the great lizards you may know about where that is.  If you want to investigate villager refugees there is an adventure behind that. For the most part these are not static placements that can be followed up on anytime they events they represent have lives of their own accord.

This forum was created as a non-commercial place to help with meetups after Katrina but things have improved since then.  You can find people for all sorts of activities on meetup.com and for gaming, there is a local, healthy game store you can support:

Anyone interested in playing a sci-fi RPG using a custom white wolf system? Very in depth storylines, focusing on role play. It includes multiple genre's, starwars, star trek, Babylon 5, Dune, etc.. I need at least one more mature player. We will play in Bedico/Ponchatoula on Saturdays.
