D&D 5e5 of 60 of 1

In your hopes to defeat Count Strahd, conqueror of Barovia, you decide to investigate rumons of Rudolph Van Richten's return. The legendary vampire hunter, it has been said, has been seen at the derelict tower of Khazan in the Svalich Woods. Khazan's Tower has lain dormant for centuries...will you find the aid you so desperately need there?

The first Dungeons & Dragons game was played back when Gary Gygax and Dave Arneson chose to personalize the massive battles of their fantasy wargames with the exploits of individual heroes. This inspiration became the first fantasy roleplaying game, in which players are characters in an ongoing fantasy story. This new kind of game has become immensely popular over the years, and D&D has grown to include many new ways to vividly experience worlds of heroic fantasy.

The core of D&D is storytelling. You and your friends tell a story together, guiding your heroes through quests for treasure, battles with deadly foes, daring rescues, courtly intrigue, and much more. You can also explore the world of Dungeons & Dragons through any of the novels written by its fantasy authors, as well as engaging board games and immersive video games. All of these stories are part of D&D.

The Dark Eye0 of 60 of 1

A small coven of witches needs the heroes help. Their leader is power hungry and looking to dominate everyone and control the region. This is not why they manipulate magic and he has to be stopped. And only the heroes can do it.

The Dark Eye is a fantasy roleplaying game wherein you and your friends play the leading roles at the center of heroic action. Travel the land as a virtuous knight, elven ranger, or erudite mage. Rebuild the war weary Middenrealm, marvel at exotic wonders in the Lands of the Tulamydes, discover lost ruins in the steaming jungles of the South, or try to drive back the evil of the Shadowlands. Rescue innocent victims from the cult of the Nameless One, navigate labyrinthine plots and intrigues at the Court of the Empress, or stand shoulder-to-shoulder with the brave defenders of the border cities to repel the ever-growing Orc Storm. Experience the breadth of Aventuria, The Dark Eye’s immersive fantasy world crafted by those who grew up steeped in medieval lore amid ancient forests, forbidding mountains, and fairy-tale castles.

The Osbornes are a peaceful family living on a farm growing fields of corn, but when a band of raven men set their sights on the farm, mere scarecrows are not nearly enough to keep them at bay. They need adventurers. Hurry to Game Theory at 11:00 on April 29th if you're brave enough to help!

Atlas Kings Game System: Easy to read. Easy to play. A perfect game system for young players just starting their life of adventure.

Additional Notes: Pencils, character sheets, and a dicebox doorprize (on me) will be provided to each player. Parents welcome to play, also. First come first serve.

Numenera0 of 60 of 1

The adventurers discover a town afflicted with a strange malady that causes horrific nightmares. Can they discover the source of these dreams and save everyone from madness?

Numenera is a science fantasy RPG set in Earth’s far, far future, in what is called The Ninth World. The world is littered with the detritus of previous civilizations, much of which is incomprehensible, and very dangerous, to the current inhabitants. The players will explore the Ninth World, discovering the relics of the past, and perhaps putting them to good use. The game uses the Cypher System, which uses a 20-sided die as the core mechanic. The players do all the rolling, leaving the game master free to tell the story. The players improve their characters, not by killing or acquiring wealth, but through discovery.
