    GRPA – Monday, January 30th 6-11pm
    Game #1 – Dragon Slayers
    3-5 Players
    GM – Yoshi Creelman

    “If You Want To Keep Those Hands, Get Them Off My Magic Cloak.”

    The bumpkins in this pissant mountain town could never have taken down that dragon. Their biggest hero hasn’t seen battle since Drozzek rode down from the Smoking Mountains three wars-to-end-all-wars ago. That old codger they call their town wizard fried his brain with one too many “elixirs of awareness” and can’t even light a campfire with all of his spells combined. So yeah, we rode into town, a bunch of outsiders ready to solve that problem. Solve that dragon problem. And no, we don’t care what they think. And yes, we’re heroes. These yokels should worship at our feet. They didn’t blast those mummies to dust or decimate that deathtrap built with lost technology. And they sure didn’t slay that dragon. That’s our dragon, and its gold is our gold. So unless you’re bringing us ale, get out before we transform you into a turkey and server you for dinner.

    Fiasco is a GM-less RPG for 3-5 players, designed to be played in a few hours with six-sided dice and no preparation. During the game you will engineer and play out stupid, disastrous situations, usually at the intersection of greed, fear, and lust. It’s like making your own Coen brothers movie, in about the same amount of time it’d take to watch one.


    Game #2 – A Darklord Emerges!
    World of Dungeoneer
    3-5 Players
    GM – Thomas Denmark

    The Darklord and his minions are marching across the freelands of Tarnyss. A ragged band of heroes is all that stands between enslavement and peace. You can defeat the Darklord by beating back his armies, by crushing his dungeon strongholds, or by destroying the artifact of evil that gives power to the Darklord. You will face impossible quests and overcome heroic challenges to win – or you will die trying…

    World of Dungeoneer is an RPG-like boardgame set in a grim fantasy world. It is based on the popular card game series published by Atlas Games. At the start of each game, a “Darklord” card is chosen who is trying to conquer the world with his evil minions: Angrihm the Lich King and his Undead Hordes, Nakari the Queen of Darkness and her legion of Naga maidens, or Umbar the Golem Lord and his mechanized horde. Players work cooperatively against the game. The war rages on both a giant world map where armies battle, and small dungeon maps where special Quests are completed by the players’ characters. Run by the famed artist and creator of the Dungeoneer card game, this will be a great chance to try it out before it hits the shelves!

    Game #3 – The Pallid Plague
    Pathfinder Society
    4-6 Players
    GM – Joshua Archer

    Reports from Andoran’s Darkmoon Vale indicate that a new plague is causing the deaths of untold fey. The Pathfinder Society sends you there to aid the nymph queen in stopping the plague and finding and destroying its source. When the plague spreads to the human population of Falcon’s Hollow, the need to find a cure grows more frantic. Can you save the many denizens of Darkmoon Vale from certain death?

    This product is a Pathfinder Society Scenario designed for 1st to 7th level characters (Tiers: 1–7). Players may build characters according to the Pathfinder Society Play rules. I will have some ready-built characters for those who do not have their own. I will also assist those wishing to create PFS characters via email or on the forum. Find out more about Pathfinder Society here.
