I've lived in Japan twice for short periods of time... does that count? :)

I'm another Japan dweller, although my 18 years pales to dice4hire's 25!
I live about 45 minutes east of Tokyo in Tsukuba. My DF collection started with KS1, but has gained a decent amount of resin as well. Of course, I want more, more, more of both types!

Last year DF was very popular there at a table a friend of mine ran (MBCE here)

The players enjoyed setting up half the table. Not much DF in Japan, a bit of Hirst Arts though.
I'm also in Japan. Located about 16km North of Nagoya City in central Japan. The above picture was from my 4e epic level game for the convention. I wanted to actually there colossal dragon in a game and the convention was a great chance to do so.

It would be nice to know where others are located.

I just happened to be there visiting and my wife found the convention. I didnt expect to play at all and just wanted to go buy a shirt or something. Unforunately there was nothing to buy but there must have been 30 tables.I guess the 5e basic rules had just been released so I ended up playing a short game with a few guys that spoke a bit of english. Most of the tables were playing 4e and some had some pretty cool terrain. It was a once in a life time experience for sure.

On a semi related note, any Japanese backers happen to go to the Annual Dungeons and dragons convention in Tokyo last October ? I was the other white guy that didnt speak much Japanese :)

Anyone know how many are on her? I know myself and two otehers but wondering if there are more.

Stand up and be counted!!!

no idea how many are on her, or who 'her' is... and I don't think this is an appropriate forum to be speculating about such things!

If you aren't gaming then you aren't living.
