    GRPA Play with the Designers Special Events

    Saturday, August 24th 12-6pm

    “Legends Never Die”
    Theater Noir RPG
    (formerly known as Vigilante)
    3-5 Players
    GM – Ashton Saylor

    The Green Acres Recuperation Home is a calming place for long-term patients who are deemed not dangerous, but unfit for life in the real world. When one of the Home’s wards slips away, the police are called in and it becomes a manhunt. But one young nurse at Green Acres has second thoughts about the escapee; that’s why she’s called you. As a favor, she wants you to talk to Bill and make your own judgement before alerting the police. But “Bill,” so he claims, is his last name. His first is Pecos. Yes, that one. Sans the bull. Meanwhile, the remains wash to shore of a woman who has been missing for almost five years. And Pecos seems to have taken an interest in the news.

    About Theater Noir RPG:
    Designed to have a focus on normal humans in a modern world, the system allows for the possibility–but not the necessity–of supernatural goings-on. It could be magic, it could be mayhem, or it could all be illusion. Probably mayhem, at least.


    Monday, August 26th 6-11pm

    “Terror of the Fury”
    Grymvaldenn RPG

    3-6 Players
    GM – Bert Lechner

    Ships have been vanishing in large numbers along the busy trade lines of the west coast of Ieva. Witnesses report seeing unnatural fog banks engulfing small fleets of trading vessels, leaving behind nothing but an indescribable stench. With winter rapidly approaching, sea traders in the north are hurrying to get their goods and head south before they are locked in by encroaching ice from the pole, and by the horrors which ride in its wake. As members of the a mercenary faction known as the Bloodgeld Legion, your regiment has been hired to escort the last fleet of traders as they make their way south, and to meet with the armada which is forming to bring battle to an invisible enemy.

    About Grymvaldenn RPG:
    Grymvaldenn, currently in Beta, is a role-playing experience spawned from the mind of a madman (yours truly): an avid gamer who thought it would be a wise decision to forgo the tried and true mechanics developed over the past decades and proceeded to build a game from scratch. The result? A game with deadly, teamwork-oriented combat, player-created equipment, spells and abilities, and a faction system which fits your character into the very fabric of a medieval world built upon the ruins of a futuristic civilization, populated with steam-punk vampires and science-fictionalized perversions of every fantasy creature you’ve ever known or loved. Because the game is still in development, some elements of gameplay may be unbalanced, incomplete, or simply made up on the fly, and any suggestions or comments will be seriously considered.
