Atomic Logo

This is primarily a Pathfinder Society and D&D Adventurer's League event running scenarios and modules (other games are offered sporadically, check the schedule to see what games and when they are offered). Register and log in to sign up for tables. Although you should sign up on this site to play, you do not have to be a member of the Pathfinder Society or Adventurer's League to start playing; you can get a membership number to join the night you visit the store to play (which is free).

Pathfinder Society games are labeled as PFS.  D&D 5th edition games are labeled as DDAL (D&D  Adventurer's League).

Atomic Empire hosts these games (and charges us nothing for the privilege) so you should buy stuff from them.
