1. Hello., I'm moving to SLC on Sunday and it'd be nice to get to make some friends that have a few similar interests. I've never lived in a big city before and would like any advice and maybe what to expect.

    1. @baneshea Welcome to RDN, where for every grape, there is a papaya!

      Saturday, 17-May-14 07:14:46 UTC from Gravity Falls, OR
    2. @stardust Now you know what my life is like.

    3. @stardust No, I mean the whole "moving away from somewhere and then meeting someone on the internet who lives there" thing. Happened to me moving from Austin, then again moving from Nashville. :c

    4. @stardust You're living in England right now, right?

      Saturday, 17-May-14 07:20:43 UTC from web
    5. @stardust You're gonna pick up an obnoxiously fake British accent before you leave, right?

    6. @baneshea Hiya. Thanks for joining us here! I recommend you look into the !Utahbronies Facebook group. I live in Provo myself.

      Saturday, 17-May-14 07:23:46 UTC from web
    7. @stardust Oh.

      Saturday, 17-May-14 07:25:13 UTC from web
    8. @baneshea and
      are the two main Utah Brony FB groups. We're having a big summer meetup soon.

      Saturday, 17-May-14 07:29:13 UTC from web
      1. @pony Yes, I found both of them already!! Thanks! ^^ You're all so welcoming!

        Saturday, 17-May-14 07:31:08 UTC from web
        1. @baneshea Glad you feel welcomed! I'm looking forward to that meetup. Hundreds attended last summer and will probably do so again this year. My wife and i will be there.

          Saturday, 17-May-14 07:35:13 UTC from web
          1. @pony O.O holy... I've never been to a con... and the largest meetup I've been to had 14 people. This is gonna be quite the change ^^"

            Saturday, 17-May-14 07:43:26 UTC from web
            1. @baneshea heh! Well the big meetup is only a yearly event. I think that SLC has a much smaller weekly meetup group similar to the one I attend in Provo.

              Saturday, 17-May-14 07:44:44 UTC from web
              1. @pony define small.... Since the 14 people one is a twice-yearly meetup and the weekly one i go to has a max of *counts* 6 people ._.

                Saturday, 17-May-14 07:47:22 UTC from web
                1. @baneshea I think the weekly one gets up into the teens fairly often in SLC. In provo it's larger at about 30 during the school year (because it's technically a BYU group but open to everypony).

                  Saturday, 17-May-14 07:49:07 UTC from web
                  1. @pony Do they play the card game, fighting is magic, roleplaying is magic, or anything else?

                    Saturday, 17-May-14 07:50:14 UTC from web
                    1. @baneshea There are actually separate weekly groups for MLP:CCG players and on occasion you'll find a tabletop RP campaign for ponies that's starting fresh. Usually they use a DnD related system instead of RiM. I prefer RiM personally though. I don't know any video gaming brony groups, but that would be easy to set up with your local group I'm guessing.
                      Lemme see...

                      Saturday, 17-May-14 07:55:03 UTC from web
                      1. @pony Thanks!! I started roleplaying just this year with RiM and am now in a pathfinder game. That campaign's gonna be on hold while I'm away though...

                        Saturday, 17-May-14 07:57:07 UTC from web
                        1. @baneshea Ah yeah. I'd love to GM an "episode" of RiM some time, but I wonder if my group of players would be able to handle it.

                          Saturday, 17-May-14 08:06:10 UTC from web
                          1. @pony I'd love to join, but I fear it wouldn't finish unless it's a short episode or we meet frequently. I'll only be in UT for 3 months.

                            Saturday, 17-May-14 08:07:41 UTC from web
                            1. @baneshea aw that's too bad. I'm not even ready to do it. It's more of a pipe dream. Maybe I'll offer to host it remotely online or something some day.

                              Saturday, 17-May-14 08:08:45 UTC from web
                            2. @baneshea What I like about RiM is the emphasis on the social and moral aspects of the game.

                              Saturday, 17-May-14 08:09:22 UTC from web
                              1. @pony Yeah, I'd love to join! I have two characters I've played.

                                Saturday, 17-May-14 08:11:00 UTC from web
                                1. @baneshea Sounds awesome! I'll keep that in mind for sure. Right now I'm busy with too many things to make it happen in reality.
                                  It sounds like you might be here for the convention anyway. Do you think you'll make it? Aug 8-9th

                                  Saturday, 17-May-14 08:13:35 UTC from web
                                  1. @pony I believe so. I was never told an end date, all I know is "mid-August."

                                    Saturday, 17-May-14 08:14:58 UTC from web
                                    1. @baneshea Ah cool then.

                                      Saturday, 17-May-14 08:15:43 UTC from web
                        2. @baneshea I hope you'll excuse me if I use the wrong terminology. I think that's how they call things in RiM.

                          Saturday, 17-May-14 08:06:42 UTC from web
        2. @baneshea Oh yeah. And we have a local pony convention in SLC coming up soon too. !utahbronies

          Saturday, 17-May-14 07:37:13 UTC from web
        3. @baneshea It's not huge like Bronycon, but it was still a lot of fun last year.

          Saturday, 17-May-14 07:38:02 UTC from web
    9. @stardust Are you coming to the con in SLC?

      Saturday, 17-May-14 07:35:59 UTC from web
    10. @vt3c oh yeah! I was wondering why it looked familiar

      Saturday, 17-May-14 07:45:32 UTC from web
    11. @vt3c hehe so we do! except for eye color that is! they could be related! lol
