Songkran - what are you going to do?

This is the first year in three that I won't be in Udon for Songkran. My school here in Maha Sarkham has summer camp starting the Monday after Songkran and I'll be worthless for a day or two trying to recover. I am one of the brave or foolhardy souls that happily ventures out into the madness. Last ...

Re: Udon Dungeons & Dragons club!

Another adventure will be starting later this month. I will be in town on the 13th or 14th and were planning on gaming for 10 days or so. For those of you that have played before I am planning on running the module "White Plume Mountain". This is a true D&D classic and I have great memories of going...

Re: Udon Dungeons & Dragons club!

Through my best efforts ScorpioPower managed to stay alive through another dungeon. It was quite nice seeing another person wanting to join the group. If you fancy joining PM me or ScorpioPower and we will help set-up your character. We have a program to make it simple just ask one of us. Don't worr...

Re: Udon Dungeons & Dragons club!

The game is on! We're here at the The Book Shop now and the game is going great. Looks as though we have new player and possibly attracting others.

Don't be shy, come back and give it a try. You may find that this is a great way to spend a few hours with friends slaying dragons saving the world :D

Re: Working in Thailand. Language school

Deepest Issan...25 clicks out of Mahsarakham into the middle of the rice patties and fields of mun. Great school but it is very "banok". Paul, the TCT is for "all" teachers who work in the government schools. The MOE has tied this into renewing your your visa. So, in theory no teachers license, no v...

Re: Is there an art club in Udon Thani?

Don't give up hope! I have found that passion can account for a lot here. Sadly, I'm living and teaching here in deepest Issan here but I my time here (short) I managed to start a monthly falang meeting that is still going strong. So, when you land here start your club and just like the movie says (...

Scorps is right the game has come a long way now. We are involved in a online game and it has turned out to be a lot of fun. Give it a try and you may find that old spark is still alive. ;)

Re: Model Railway club

Biggest problem I see is getting the model RR equipment. I left a large collection back in the USA. Never sold it just in storage at my families warehouse. A club would be the best way to have something like this a the members could pool there resources and have a reason to meet regularly. I never d...

Re: Can you play Dungeons & Dragons or would you like to learn?

Hi gang hope everyone doing well.

As Scorps has said above I'm one of the other guys in the group. If we can get this thing off the ground I'll come in from the bush to play on selected weekends. I need a good excuse to come to Udon anyway ;)
