Auckland After Dark
Vampire: the Masquerade campaign, runs 2nd Saturday of each month. This group seems to be the re-incarnation of the Vampire: the Masquerade campaign that died down (no pun intended) a few years ago. They run games on the third Saturday of every month.

Haven't run a game in a while, but Anna says it will happen.
