    GRPA – Monday, April 22nd 6-11pm

    FEATURED GAME #1:
    Blood in the Fog
    Vampire: The Requiem

    3-6 Players
    GM – John Watson

    Terror grips the City by the Bay. Kindred and kind alike struggle to pick up the pieces in the wake of a horrific bombing at the War Memorial Opera House. San Francisco’s Carthian Mayor, along with his human counterpart, has met Final Death, as have most of the board of supervisors, both human and vampire.

    The Carthians fight to maintain their rule of the city, while also trying to cover up their devil’s bargain. VII moves to finish the job of destroying the kindred of San Francisco and two doomed lovers meet in the wreckage. Can they be true to each other without betraying their friends?

    About Vampire: The Requiem:
    Vampire: The Requiem is a role-playing system that uses a D10 system to tell a quick and memorable story. In this game, each player will portray one of the six principle characters in a story of doomed love and blood obligation. Players will be taking the lead in determining the outcome of this tale. Be prepared for a game dealing with conflicting loyalties that illustrates how dead hearts can still break.

    FEATURED GAME #2:
    Trouble in the Pacific
    Dread RPG + Call of Cthulhu

    4-5 Players
    GM – Adam Breindel

    It’s 1929. You’ve seen and dealt with weird and weirder in a handful of stubborn towns along the Miskatonic River. But having heard no other reports, you hoped there weren’t…problems …like these in other places. You guessed that the U.S. Government didn’t know — or want to believe — any of the strange stories were more than that.

    Guess what? You guessed wrong. Four men with stiff uniforms and square jaws have clarified your error by “offering” you a trip to Hawaii to help research and solve an exceptional personnel issue at a U.S. Army installation and two nearby villages. Since the alternative they offered hinted at time in a secret military mental hospital, you’ve already decided to start packing for Hawaii.

    About Dread RPG:
    Dread+CoC features a scenario and milieu from classic Call of Cthulhu: investigator characters who wish to unwrap secrets and find clues to Lovecraftian horrors … and not go insane or die while fending off evils as best they can (which is not very often).

    However, their character background will be supplemented with a Dread-style questionnaire, to be filled out at the start of the game, which will establish deeper motivations, quirks, and character relationships than typical CoC characters.

    Even better, conflict resolution is via Dread’s Jenga tower mechanic. Whether it’s player-vs-player or player-vs world, the harder you’re trying to do something or fight someone, the more pieces you have to pull from the tower. If the tower falls, you are dead or stark raving mad. As long as the tower stays up, you can stay alive and somewhat sane. But what’s the fun in that, right?
