GRPA – Monday, November 29th 6-11pm
Game #1 – A Funny Thing Happened…
GM – André Sisneros
The year is 1102. You and your companions are returning home after nearly four years in the Holy Land. You were present at the taking of Jerusalem, now under Christian rule. You have seen glory, bitter fighting, and strange magics, but the time has come to return home: England! It is a long journey across all of Europe and there are many strange lands to pass through. But you wear the red cross of a Crusader, and all good Christians will pay respect to the returning heroes. After all you have seen and armed as you are, what could possibly go wrong?
We will be playing out a historical story using the GURPS system. This is a highly-versatile system capable of portraying any setting you can imagine. For this game, the setting is gritty and realistic. Life is hard and combat is deadly. Thank goodness you are well-armed and experienced knights. Good luck!
Game #2 – Rocket City Rocks!
GM – Dale Horstman
Racing across Rocket City to make a concert by the renowned Metal band The Zombie Lords of Jupiter, the Danger Patrol smacks right into a giant Space Squid that suddenly materializes in their flight path. As the sparkling black energy of a Stygian portal dissipates from around the creature, it reaches out immense barbed tentacles and grabs hold of the Danger Cruiser. “Well, we’ll probably just miss the opening act,” mutters one of the passengers as the cruiser rocks violently. Danger Patrol to action!
Game #3 – That Time a Bunch of Heroes Stopped some Marauding Orcs
GM – Jordan Walraven
The people of Glorian have lived in peace with the Orcs of Nagrad for generations. Over the last three seasons, the Orcs have grown more and more aggressive. In the last few weeks, they have taken to raiding the surrounding towns and taking the prisoners back to their war encampments. A group of mercenaries has been hired by the surrounding towns to discover what has caused this shift in the behavior of the Orcs and to put an end to it.
This is a 1st-Level adventure for players of any experience level. Everyone is free to bring his or her own character but are restricted to only the official published Paizo material. Characters will be provided for those that do not bring their own. So come fight some Orcs, solve a mystery, and maybe even rescue someone of arguable importance!
