RPG Roulette: Numenera @ Mayfair
Feb 7 @ 6:00 pm

Welcome to the Ninth World, and to Numenera.

Join Game Master Anthony for a mini campaign on Thursdays through all of February!

New players are always welcome! We’ll be starting with brand new characters and covering the basics of the game before we begin.

About the Game
Numenera takes place on Earth, well sort of. One billion years have passed and nine eras have come and gone—great cities, alien races, machine dynasties—all have risen to power, made sweeping changes to the planet’s people, its structure and its atmosphere. And all have fallen, leaving the planet a shell for the next to fill in.

It would be error to refer to you as a true human, and yet human is how you think of yourself. A resourceful wanderer in a landscape beyond your comprehension, full of seemingly “magical” devices and technology left behind by past civilizations.

Select who you will be in this world: Are you Glaive, armed to the teeth, a master of weapons? A Nano, someone whose mind and control of themselves can even affect their surroundings? The Wright, a builder, designer, craftsman? An Arkus? Leader of people, architect of councils and towns. A Delve, destined to explore ruins that may have the chance to slay others, but never yourself? Or are you a Jack? Pulling and teasing from the other styles, touching each of their disciplines, but never mastering any yourself.

Read the first moments of the campaign here. We hope you’ll be able to join us!

Dungeons & Dragons for Kids! (Class) @ Greenfield
Feb 17 @ 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Welcome to Barristerberg Adventurers Academy!

This mythical and magical place is where young adventurers begin their journeys and build lifelong knowledge of how to be a great Dungeons & Dragons player.

Dungeons & Dragons isn’t just about tracking statistics and defeating imaginary dragons. The real fun of the game is in telling a communal story, cheering when your teamwork pays off, and laughing when everything goes wonky.

 

Class Event
This D&D “class” will prepare young players to join in on any of our D&D for Kids adventures in the future.

Stick around for a same-day adventure at 4:00PM, February 17!

Tier 1 Event
This “Tier 1” event will focus solely on the fundamentals of Dungeons & Dragons gameplay. Participants will learn the essentials of:

  • Choosing an adventuring class and race (elf, dwarf, gnome, human, etc) for their character;
  • Listening to descriptions of the story world and making choices for their characters;
  • Interacting with the Dungeon Master’s story world and the characters it contains;
  • Basic rules of adventuring and fighting (Example: Roll a die and add your attack value to see if you hit this goblin);
  • Acting in turn so that the whole group participates.

A “trimmed” portion of the Dungeons & Dragons rules will be used during this gameplay session. To continue learning the complete D&D ruleset, also join us for our Tier 2 and Tier 3 events.

About your Dungeon Master
Chris has been playing Dungeons & Dragons and other tabletop roleplaying games since 1981. For many years, he has run events in Board Game Barrister stores, at official conventions, and at home. Chris has published several pieces in third-party roleplaying books and has written numerous adventures and campaigns.

Dungeons & Dragons for Kids! (Adventure) @ Greenfield
Feb 17 @ 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm

Your training is complete and it’s time to begin your life of action and adventure in Dungeons & Dragons!

Together, we’ll tell an amazing story about your character’s heroic choices and amazing quests. All game materials will be provided, but players wishing to bring their own dice or a miniature representing their hero may do so.

Important:
Players who have not yet graduated from Barristerberg Adventuring Academy will first want to attend our D&D for Kids Class event earlier that same day!

 

Adventure Event
This D&D “adventure” will allow young players to use the knowledge they learned in the academy to tell a story as a group and accomplish great deeds!

D&D with Eric @ Greenfield
Mar 21 @ 6:00 pm

Join us for a weekly Dungeons & Dragons campaign!

Create a character, prepare to combat great threats, and dive into your own unique story in this massively popular roleplaying game! D&D is as much as game of collective storytelling and memorable moments as it is about slaying dragons and collecting loot.

Your Dungeon Master, Eric, will guide you through this “homebrewed” adventure campaign, welcoming all players new and old to a fantastic world.

New players welcome!
Players with little or no experience with Dungeons & Dragons are welcome at this event. Your Dungeon Master is available to provide guidance and answer questions during the event.
