Hey Redcap, welcome to the forum.
I am a brikwars player from Princeton, NJ and (as I mentioned in the other thread) make frequent trips to Philadelphia on the weekends. If you end up carrying BA or BF products, you'll likely see some business from me, but not anything overly reliable. Graduate students lack disposable income.
I have two forces at the moment (medieval and sci fi) and would support tournament/open play. That is, as long as both are light-hearted, sans rule-mongering, etc. I have little desire to play against opponents (and the regular gaming community is full of them, as you know) who are anal-retentive Spikes and cannot see the irony of playing with plastic.
PM me if you'd like to start chatting at length about possibilities.
