Role Playing Games

A role-playing game (RPG) is a game in which players assume the roles of characters in a fictional setting. Players take responsibility for acting out these roles within a narrative, either through literal acting or through a process of structured decision-making or character development. Actions taken within many games succeed or fail according to a formal system of rules and guidelines.

Ok get ready to roll for initiative!

Showcasing the following systems
· Dungeons and Dragons 5th Ed (Adventurer’s League & Homebrew)
· Shadow Run 5th Ed
· Dark Heresy
· World of Darkness
· Legend of 5 Rings RPG
· Call of Cthulu
· Gurps 4th Edition
· Bloody Quest
· Starfinder Society

You’ll find something to peak your interest in the RPG area.

So whether you are an RPG veteran or have never played before; bring your strength, cunning and charisma and sign up for some games in the panorama ballroom.
