    The Return of GRPA!

    July 19, 2016

    After a lengthy break over the past couple of years, our burgeoning community of role-players has finally demanded the return of a Gamescape legend: Gamescape’s Role-Players Anonymous! On this coming Monday, July 25th, we’ll be adding three special one-shot games to our regular stable of open and curated D&D and Pathfinder tables. All three are run by supremely talented GMs and we think you should consider giving one of them a try. It’s role-playing without the commitment! If you’d like to join in, please either call or write us back with your name and the game you’d like to join. All GRPA games are free and will be filled on a first-come, first-serve basis, and you’ll be responded to immediately with your status in the game.
     
    GRPA – Monday, July 25th 6-11pm

    Game #1:
    Run, War Wagon, Run!
    Apocalypse World and Dread Mashup

    3-6 Players
    GM – Dale Horstman

    Boss Red Hammer’s War Wagon wasn’t easy to nab, but it’s the only vehicle that can carry enough go-juice and keep you all alive on the 800-miles across the burn flat to the promise of Oceana. Hammer’s Dog Boys are loaded and in hot pursuit barking at your heels. Hopefully the wasteland doesn’t have too much more than the odd raider or bike crew to throw at you before they catch up. But you know, no one is ever that lucky and even if you’re lotto-lucky, it’s going to be a very, very long run to that edge!

    This scenario will be a fast-paced chase session using Vincent Baker’s Apocalypse World rules along with a custom card deck of obstacles and threats, as well as a Jenga tower to keep track of the health of your ill-begotten war wagon (a la the Dread RPG).
     
    Game #2:
    Hong Kong Task Force 88
    Feng Shui 2

    3 Players
    GM – Jake Wheaton

    The streets of Hong King have been flooded with a new dangerous drug called “Diet Riot”, which is causing devastating side-effects to its users. A special task force of elite operatives has been called in to deal with the problem – that’s you. You’ll be investigating, kicking butt, and potentially slinging magic in the adventure and drama of this B-movie alternate reality setting.

    Character sheets will be provided and the rules will be explained at the beginning of the evening. You may wish to prepare yourselves by watching a Kung-Fu “cop movie” to get inspired!
     
    Game #3:
    A Wedding Affair

    Exalted 3rd Ed
    2-4 Players
    GM – John Lamperez

    You are the honored wedding guests of the royal family, having been instrumental in ending a long-fought war (these things are easy for Solars). However, this is Exalted, and nothing is simple. The ceremony gets significantly more complicated when rogue gods, ghosts, demons, and other members of the Exalted Host all have a plan coming to fruition on this celebrated evening…and it’s up to your circle to find out what’s going on. Come for an evening of mystery, intrigue, action, and probably some absurdist humor. This is, of course, Exalted.

    Characters will be provided for all players and we’ll decide who gets what at the beginning of the game.
