RPG Roulette: The Skeletons (Horror One-Shots!) @ Mayfair
Oct 3 @ 6:00 pm

“ARISE AND PROTECT THE TOMB SKELETAL GUARDIANS!”

These are the first words you hear upon awakening in a dark crypt after untold years in blackened silence.  Jerkingly, you arise from your position, and, in shuddering motions, you grab any nearby equipment and stalk forward to slay the intruders in your silent grave.

Join us for an October of RPG one-shots! This week is The Skeletons, where you’ll play a skeletal guardian “living” from one slain group of adventurers to the next.

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

More about The Skeletons
This game takes one of the classic creatures seen in just about any role-playing game, and turns the tables on the players.  Instead of facing down the skeletal remains of creatures guarding a tomb, you ARE the skeletons guarding a crypt.

The major themes of this game focus on storytelling, memories gained and lost, and the slow march of time as your game master guides you players through the ages as your eternal service to guarding the crypt begins.
