    GRPA – Monday, January 25th 6-11pm

    Game #1 – A New Hope
    Star Wars Saga Ed.

    4-6 Players
    GM – Aaron Nievar

    The Empire has just been born. As we all know, while trying to to defeat the Emperor Palpatine, all the Jedi masters were killed outright but one: Mace Windu. Using his great powers of the Force, he is able to make it back to the Jedi temple and warn of the coming attack that is to befall the Jedi order. While the Emperor calls for Order 66, only Coruscant’s clones are affected at first. A young group of Jedi at the top of their class are the only survivors organized enough that can lead an assault against the Empire’s forces. Their target: the planet Endor houses a device that can send out a beam of force that will activate every clone to commence their final orders. It’s up to these young but brave Jedi to save their order from the forces of the Dark Side.

    This is an adventure set in the Star Wars universe featuring an alternate history of the Jedi extinction attempt.

    Game #2 – Chapel of the Angelic Heart (Chapter 1)
    4 Players
    GM – Nick Lundback

    Having recently arrived in the small Nirmanthian town of Kassen, our group of Friends are struggling to make ends meet and are determining whether or not to move on. Luckily, they have been approached by a chronicler of Angelic Lore and have been given the task of recording a series of inscriptions thought to be located in a nearby ruin. With few options available and the monetary rewards sufficient, the Friends have left the town walls behind and head out into the wilderness…

    This 1st-level introductory adventure marks the beginning of a continuous Pathfinder Campaign that will see a cast of characters develop their own story through the manipulations of different players. As they progress, the plot of the story will be player-driven, though the same players may not be present each time. Through twists and turns, we will see the characters develop their skills and abilities while they explore the wide world of Golarion…

    Game #3 – Welcome to Upfenbrunnen
    Warhammer Fantasy 3rd Ed.
    4 Players
    GM – Andre Sisneros

    The World of Warhammer is a dark and dangerous place. There are more dangers out in the world that you can imagine. Greenskins raid into the Empire all the time and have to be fought off. Beastmen roam the deep forests pursuing their own dark agenda. And always there is the threat of internal corruption. What hope does a girl in a small village have? About a week ago, Bischof and Ulfman, a Witchhunter and his associate, arrived in town. Amid threats of investigation and suspicion Bischof took a liking to Else, the peasant girl that helps out at the tavern. Everyone in town watched with dread as the advances got more and more insistent. Lukas and Waldor had always been fond of the girl and wanted to intervene, but Bischof made it known in no uncertain terms that if they interfered with the actions of an ordained Witchhunter, perhaps their own families should be thoroughly investigated for heresy. This morning things finally came to an ugly confrontation. Else rebuffed his advances once again. He slapped her to the ground and she rose and broke a tankard over his head. She was immediately accused of witchcraft and dragged into the street. Here she was beaten and then forced to build a pyre at the center of the commons as Biscof and his lackey harassed her and leered at her. As the townsfolk gather around town everyone is afraid of what comes next but no one is brave enough to step up and bring this to a stop. Just another day in town. Welcome to Upfenbrunnen!

    Looking for a whirlwind introduction to the new edition of Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay? We’ve got the ticket for you! Witchhunters, Greeskins, and Beastmen all in one session. This little adventure will give you plenty of action helping the small village of Upfenbrunnen, and boy, do they need the help. We’ll be using the new edition of WHF, which has been making quite a stir. There are many new ideas and mechanics that make game play fast and intuitive, while there are still enough of the older mechanics to please old-time players of Warhammer. Come ready yourselves for a gritty world where life is cheap and everything is set against you. Come ready yourselves for Warhammer!
