    GRPA – Monday, February 27th 6-11pm

    Game #1 – A Penny for My Thoughts
    A Penny for My Thoughts
    2-4 Players
    GM – Yoshi Creelman

    Having trouble remembering things? Do you know someone who cannot remember who they are? The Orphic Institute for Advanced Studies can help. We are seeking volunteers for the final stages of a new drug, Mnemosyne. Combined with a revolutionary new treatment process, Mnemosyne can help you remember who you are. Call immediately to setup an appointment, lest you forget.

    A Penny for My Thoughts is a collaborative storytelling game in which players take the roles of amnesiac patients undergoing therapy to recover their lost memories. With the help of your fellow players, detailed memory triggers and a series of directed “Yes” and “No” questions uncover the details of your character’s story. A Penny for My Thoughts is a fast, GM-less, diceless game designed for single-session play. Come be surprised and excited at situations, events, and choices your character has brought to the Orphic Institute for Advanced Studies!


    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 City of Strangers, Pt. II: The Twofold Demise
    Pathfinder Society
    4-6 Players
    GM – Joshua Archer

    A powerful local gang in Kaer Maga demands that you end the threat of the Shadow Lodge at once, as the Lodge’s very existence upsets the delicate local balance of power. Refusal means both the expulsion of the Pathfinder Society from Kaer Maga forever and also your untimely deaths. The choice is yours. The Twofold Demise is the second and final scenario in The City of Strangers campaign arc.

    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.
    Game #4 – In the Face of Death
    Outbreak: Undead
    2-4 Players
    GM – Mike O’Brien

    As the early morning sun rises on a new day, the world does not stir from its titanic slumber, nor has it been wrested from its dormancy in many months. And as earth sleeps, it dreams of death. Death in homes. Death in the streets. Death walking on the rotted ivory of teeth. Death is no longer a concept or a state, but the mask worn by the ones we love. It is the children who gnash their teeth at flesh, the husbands and wives who stalk their partners and the monsters that wear the skin of household pets. Abominations now control the globe, feeding on the meat of the living while the survivors starve. We are starving and we need you to help. Fetch us what you can from the supermarket across town, but be warned. The streets are avenues into Hell’s gaping maw, and it has coughed up the most abhorrent demons it could muster. Getting there will be hard, and getting back will be harder. Yet if you manage to survive, you will save us all.

    Outbreak: Undead is a zombie apocalypse role-playing game where life is no longer a guarantee and waking up in the morning is cause for celebration. Four players will take on the role of survivors and, using an innovative percentile system, attempt to make it through the day.

    Warning! This game is intended to be dramatic. It will contain graphic and mature themes that may be upsetting to some. If you have any problems with the concepts of death, violence, or the moral dilemmas that arise from life-and-death situations, we do not recommend signing up for this game.
