Welcome to the RPG half of our annual Halloween party! All games will be held simultaneously, so please pick the game you most want to play in and register for that one only. Beginner players are welcome! Don't worry if you've never played an RPG before, we'll help you along the way.
The following games will be available:
Dread (GM: Jody Kline): Dread is a game of horror and hope. Those who play will participate in a mutual telling of an original macabre tale. The goal of Dread is to sustain the delicate atmosphere that invokes the hand quivering emotion that lends its name to the game. The thrill of a Dread game lies within the tension between desire and loss. You will take on the role of someone trapped in a story that is only as compelling as it is hostile—someone who will find themselves making decisions we hope never to face in real life.
Call of Cthulhu(GM: Chris Campbell) If you have ever been enthralled by a ghost story or spellbound at a horror movie, you are in for a treat. Part the veil that separates frail humanity from the terror that lurks beyond space and time. Investigate forgotten ruins, haunted woods, and nameless menaces.
Call of Cthulhu is a horror roleplaying game using the Basic Roleplaying system and based upon the writings of Howard Phillips Lovecraft and a few others.
The Esoterrorists (GM: Jim Stutz) You are elite investigators combating the plots of the Esoterrorists, a loose affiliation of occult terrorists intent on tearing the fabric of the world. The Esoterrorists introduces the GUMSHOE rules system, which revolutionizes investigative scenarios by ensuring that players are never deprived of the crucial clues they need to move the story forward.
Fate Accelerated Edition (GM: Dave Chalker) Fate Accelerated, or FAE, is a condensed version of the popular Fate Core system that brings all the flexibility and power of Fate in an easily digestible—and quickly read—package. With FAE, you and your friends can step into the world of your favorite books, movies, and TV or you can create a world of your own. And set up is simple—you can be playing in minutes. Whether you’re new to RPGs or an expert gamer, FAE brings something special to the table. Dave Chalker will be bringing you a special horror twist on this easy to learn, quick to play RPG.
All games start promptly at 6pm. Please plan around traffic and Metro work. If you reserve a seat, but do not arrive by 6pm, your seat may be given to someone off the wait list.
