Though we’re running a bit late in getting these games to you during this short month, a couple of intrepid GMs have offered forth their time and imagination to present the following. As we always mention, we’re ever on the lookout for game masters who are willing to run one-shot RPG games at our events from any system at all. Just let us know, and we’ll schedule you in. The more submissions we get, the more games we can offer at the store! Click the link for the official lineup of role-playing games scheduled for our next GRPA event on Monday, February 22nd. Have a look below, and if you’d like to join us for either of these sessions, please select a game in which you’d like to participate and either call or write us back with your name and selection. All games are free and will be filled on a first-come, first-serve basis, and you’ll be responded to immediately with your status in the game. Please note that some of these games are filling up quickly!

GRPA – Monday, February 22nd 6-11pm
Game #1 – The Scents of Urgency
Mouseguard RPG (Burning Wheel)
GM – Arnold Stellema
There is trouble in the Mouse Territories. A shipment of scent bound for Pebblebrook is overdue. Without the scent border, the Territories will be vulnerable to all manner of predators. Gwendolyn has charged our heroes with tracking down the missing shipment and helping insure its safe arrival.
This will be a ground up introduction to one of the best RPG’s ever written: Mouseguard. We’ll build characters from scratch, cover the basic rules (which is to say most of them) and run an adventure all in one night. Mouseguard is a story-driven, interactive role-playing game that lets everyone at the table influence the direction and outcome of the adventure. The world is beautiful, the mechanics mix strategy with dice, and character creation is unlike anything you have ever played. If you haven’t tried this game… NOW is the time!
Game #2 – Onward to Glory? (Chapter 1, Page 3)
GM – Nick Lundback
The Party has completed their goal of acquiring the scrolls residing in the Chapel of the Angelic Heart. They now head back to the small town of Kassen to meet with their current patron, Lukaz Aildoz, and find out what information the scrolls contain. However, there are many more avenues that the Group can pursue and they must decide which fork in the road they are going to take.
This 1st-level adventure continues the GRPA/ORPG ongoing 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…
(If you wish to play in this game, please take a moment to Rread the GRPA /ORPG Patfinder Campaign Chronicle located in the “GRPA” Forum of the Gamescape North website. This chronicle tells the tale of our group and will provide you with the background information to understand the characters and the story.)
