Pugmire – Casual RPG Group @ Greenfield
Oct 2 @ 6:00 pm

“Be a Good Dog. Protect Your Home. Be Loyal To Those Who Are True. These are the words of the Code of Man. Dogs have inherited the world, building the kingdom of Pugmire thousands of years after the Ages of Man.”

Join us for Pugmire every other Monday!

Pugmire is a light-hearted and family-friendly fantasy world. These dogs have been changed to use tools and language, and they (along with other races of uplifted animals) seek to rediscover the world they’ve inherited. Some dogs use the leftover technology of humanity, but they believe it all to be magic handed to them by their dead gods. Others seek to create an ideal civilization, using a Code of Man compiled from ancient, fragmentary lore. The world is dangerous and mysterious, but courageous and loyal dogs will persevere.

New Players Welcome!
This is a small group that is hoping to become larger. Players of all experience levels are welcome to join in, create a character, and begin adventuring!

One Shot RPG: Blades in the Dark @ Mayfair
Oct 5 @ 6:00 pm

Join Game Master Glenn for a one-shot session of Blades in the Dark!

Blades in the Dark is a tabletop role-playing game about a crew of daring scoundrels seeking their fortunes on the haunted streets of an industrial-fantasy city. There are heists, chases, occult mysteries, dangerous bargains, bloody skirmishes, and, above all, riches to be had — if you’re bold enough to seize them.

You and your fledgling crew must thrive amidst the threats of rival gangs, powerful noble families, vengeful ghosts, the Bluecoats of the city watch, and the siren song of your scoundrel’s own vices. Will you rise to power in the criminal underworld? What are you willing to do to get to the top?

Dive into a new RPG – every other Thursday!
Each One Shot RPG night, we will explore a new roleplaying system and play a one-time session. It’s your bi-weekly chance to become survivors in a horror story, travel across fantasy landscapes, embrace the absurdity of Japanese anime, and more!

Iron Dragon @ Greenfield
Oct 14 @ 5:00 pm

The Dragon rides at midnight!  er, 5pm!

Join “the” Barrister, himself as we play with crayons and dragons-that-are-trains* in this new gorgeous edition of the classic Iron Dragon rails game.

* Ok, seriously, this is a lengthy game in the Empire Builder series of games, affectionately called the “crayon rails” games because they are railroad games where you draw your track on the board with crayon.  Rails games remain some of the most engrossing, best games I’ve played, and Iron Dragon is the longest, most-involved of them all.  BECAUSE THERE ARE DRAGONS!  And the Rainbow Bridge.  And the Underground (never go to the Underground!)  But I digress.  This game will probably take 5-7 hours, and we’ll be playing long after the store officially closes.  Rails games are not hard, but they are involved.  We’ll hopefully have multiple tables going, so stop by, see what’s going on, and join in.  I typically don’t recommend Iron Dragon as your first crayon rails game because it is the longest and most difficult, but those who have played it as their first seem to love it just as much as I do.

From the publisher’s description

Return to the fantasy-steampunk world of Darwinina in Mayfair Games’ classic Iron Dragon! After a century of ruin and chaos, the dwarves, elves, humans, orcs and trolls have begun to rebuild their world. To do
this, they need to bring back the steam driven dragons of trade, they need the Iron Dragons.

Using the classic crayon rails mechanics, build tracks across this magical land to deliver goods and earn money. Iron Dragon also features random events that can trigger serious dilemmas, making your job more difficult.

Cross jungles, forge rivers and bribe the orcs of the underworld in this returning classic!

One Shot RPG: Mythos World @ Mayfair
Nov 2 @ 6:00 pm

Join Game Master Glenn for a one-shot session of Mythos World!

The universe is more terrifying than mankind can possibly imagine, but you’ve seen things, you know things, and you’ve begun to understand. Can you find a way to stop the evil always lurking in the shadows, waiting to enslave or destroy the human race? Can you survive with your sanity intact?

Mythos World is a roleplaying game of cosmic horror using the Apocalypse World engine. Players investigate bizarre events in a classic 1920s setting inspired by authors like H.P. Lovecraft, Clark Ashton Smith, Robert W. Chambers, and Robert E. Howard.

One Shot RPG: The Veil @ Mayfair
Nov 16 @ 6:00 pm

Join Game Master Glenn for a one-shot session of The Veil!

The room flickers in front of you for an instant like a PMP losing reception. You hear the hammer snap back on a cheap poly and you can almost smell the ozone as the bullet glides out of the chamber. The window flies apart in shatterproof shards the size of disembodied limbs. Your neurochip feeds you the trajectory of the unequivocal sentence of death speeding your way as your eyes swivel in their machined sockets. Juice crashes through your veins. You’ve only got a split second to make a move. What do you do?

The Veil is a collaborative storytelling game Powered by the Apocalypse designed to tell cyberpunk stories of your own making. Use world building tools to come up with unique settings that look and feel like the cyberpunk you and your friends have always wanted. Put questions that drive your characters at the heart of heists, mysteries, and conspiracies. Break a near future world and then try to put it back together. Play to find out what happens.
