SoCal

Postby Tuefish » Sat Mar 22, 2008 7:41 am

Is there anyone in southern California?
my friend I used to play with lives in lake elsinore, I live closer to O.C.
the dilemma should be obvious to anyone who knows where I'm talking about.

I'm in SoCal a lot lately on business. Often enough, in fact, that I've started consolidating a big chunk of my Lego collection down there. I think it's the most Lego that I've had in a single location since I was actually at Lego.

Edit: Kind of near this place. They have good gaming table space there, I keep thinking it'd be a good place to host a battle.

southern california yes, but O.C. is laughable at your socal claim. San Diego for me, although REAL gangstas come from Chula Vista.

regardless, i ain't driving to O.C. for a "game" where we play with children's toys for hours, and then i show up and find out you're a homocidal snuggler/murderer. besides, gas is expensive.

IVHorseman:
social claim? please clarify.
Actually I live near Silverado canyon, where one of those fires was a while back. And yes, gas is Explensive*.

Rayhawk:
I don't know the facility you've linked to, as Brikwars is my introduction to wargaming in general,
and I've only played a handfull of times, with Very loose rules.

From a Norcal perspective, anything south of San Luis Obispo is SoCal.

The southernmost point of NorCal is actually somewhere around Big Sur, although if you head further inland then parts of SoCal extend much further north, with residual influence felt as far up as Sacramento.

San Diego and the O.C. are further south than L.A. proper, but there is nothing in the world more SoCal than L.A., nor should anyone desire such a trait. L.A. is like a black hole of SoCalness, with the caveat that the black hole would also have to have many of the quantum properties of some kind of galactic unwiped anus, the force of whose anosity was so great that it sucked itself into an infinite anal well of SoCalhood.

I believe the mathematics to describe this process were first theorized by Stephen Hawking in the 1970s, but thinking too closely about the magnitude of Los Angeles' disgusting SoCality caused him to fail his Horror check and be instantly overcome with Lou Gherig's disease leading to almost total paralyzation.

LA is an anomaly. i wouldn't even call it socal as much as it is just... LA. it's it's own kind of monster!

and nothing holds a candle to the nocalness of... eureka.

I have a Brikwars circle of sorts in LA... but we don't play often, and the last time we invited outside players they turned out to be Warhammer squares who retreated.

In my mind, I often think of Lego bricks as being kind of like Warhammer squares.
