This month’s Gamescape’s Role-Players Anonymous is coming up on Monday, August 29th, and we’ll be adding two special one-shot games to our regular stable of open and curated D&D and Pathfinder tables. Both are run by supremely talented GMs and we think you should consider giving either 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, August 29th 6-11pm
Lights, Camera, Uh-Oh!
GM – Arnold Stellema
Fiasco is a rules-light outline to create a storyline for a movie. Starting with the barest concept and a pile of dice, we will frame a narrative. Then we will work to craft a story worthy of a Coen Brothers movie. We will create characters and help them feel and believe in their goals and desires. We will work together to create a web of lies and betrayal. Then everything goes south and it ends horribly for most everyone involved. Magically, this exercise in cooperative storytelling works! When we are finished you will feel like you walked out of a theater having just seen a really weird movie.
Fiasco is a GM-less co-operative game for 3-5 players (minus one for available slots, as I will facilitate). It requires creativity and a sense of humor. Content will likely be R-Rated.
Swords Against the Dead
GM – Andre Sisneros
Why can things never go easy? All you wanted was a night’s rest and maybe some company and drink in the common room. Not tonight! You suffer the rudest of awakenings when zombies crash through the walls of the inn, and battle is joined. But from where do these shambling menaces arise – the misnamed Isle of Sanctuary, the strangely silent tower of Xuthana, or the Cliff Graves of the Demon Coast? And who or what raised this army of restless undead? Unless you want to join the minions as a fresh recruit, you’re going to have to act!
13th Age combines classic fantasy role-playing with innovative story-based rules that let you get right to the story you want to tell. This introductory adventure for up to six players will quickly let you get a feel for the world and the rules. Bring some dice and your creativity. We’re going to have some fun!
August GRPA Event: Monday, August 29th 6-11pm
