Have Dice, Will Travel

I was going to wait and post this later, but since I've started talking about it, I wanted to have a central place to discuss it. Starting in a few months, I'm going to hit the road. The short form is that I'm planning to travel around the world and run games in exchange for hospitality - so, if you've got a couch and would like me to run Eberron or Over The Edge for you, hey, that just might be possible.

Going into more detail, I've got two goals here. First, I want to meet gamers from as wide a range of backgrounds and geographic locations as possible. Second, I want to see interesting places. As such, there's two levels of visit I've got in mind.

If you're an ideal subject, then I'd like to have some time to get to know you and your home. As such, what I'd like is hospitality (be it couch or floor space) for three nights. One of those nights, I will entertain you and your friends - running Eberron or OTE, playing Gloom, whatever you want. Another night, I'd like YOU to entertain ME. What is it that you feel I should see in your home? Not necessarily the biggest tourist attraction - but the thing YOU thing is most interesting. Is there a game YOU want me to play that I'm not going to find anywhere else? Something that inspired you as a gamer? Or just the Biggest Ball of Twine in Oslo? The third day, I'll rest and mind my own business... look at things that have caught my eye. In the meantime, I'm always will to talk about gaming, Eberron, or what have you. Needless to say, you're welcome to spread these three days out over your gaming group; I'm happy to spend a night on three different sofas, as long as my goal is met.

Of course, I'm simply not going to have time to spend three days with every interesting person (and I'm sure there will be many people who just don't fit on my travel map). So I'll also be looking for flyby visits - crashing just one night while I'm en route, either running a game for you or just hanging out and talking.

And hey, as option number three, if you've got a convention going on and you're looking for a guess, well, most conventions are three days... I'd certainly be happy to run games and meet people.

If this sounds appealing to you, let me know, either on this thread or by contacting me directly at onesmallkeith@gmail.com . Feel free to pass this along to anyone else you know who might be interested. As I said, I'm sure I won't be visiting everyone on my list; right now I'm putting the list together, and then I'll start mapping out a course and seeing where the lines fall. I'd like to know where you are, who you are, and why you think I should stop in your town... what makes either it or you especially intriguing?

So, it's going to be a strange year - help me to make it a little stranger!
