This is the informal name for my regularly Hosted group that's been running since about 1993. We play almost every Wednesday night in Thornbury, Melbourne. One unique feature is that we often end the roleplaying with Magic the Gathering card playing. We also take the fourth week off from the regular game after 3 roleplaying nights and indulge in something else. Access to the Google Group page.
