RTR Game Day

You want to broaden your horizon and try out some lesser known games?  You are interested to find out what indie and small press games are out there waiting to be discovered?  You have trouble committing to the time needed for a long-term campaign but you would really like to try out new games?

Then RTR Game Day is for you!

We are offering Try It Out style games, preferably in indie and small press games, on a 2-sessions-per-month cycle.  Come and find out what RTR's GMs have to offer you!

We ask that you commit to both events in a month. Our GMs put in the effort to prepare and run a game for two sessions, one session per day.  All you need to do is show up and enjoy the games we offer.

 

First May session (Check out the second session)

 

Game of Thrones -- GM: Ron Rossbach

Based on the book series by George R. R. Martin, the game was custom made to fit the setting and has experienced a soaring of interest since the release of the HBO series.  Part of the character generation process is the house creation, during which players cooperatively piece together the noble house and its lands.  Using only d6, the system captures the world of Westeros lovingly and efficiently integrates both social and military combat.

Players: Chris DeCarolis, Jennifer Stanley, Pedro Nunez +2, Ellabell (6 of 6)

 

Dungeon World -- GM: Brendan Clougherty

Dungeon World fuses the familiar trappings of D&D with a rules-light, story-focused system. If you've ever wished your D20 game was a little less about detailed skill lists and turn-based combat and a little more like your favorite fantasy novels, then this might be your game.  If you love fantasy stories and want your character to do awesome and exciting things, face hard choices with every roll of the dice, and drive the action - then come play Dungeon World!  All you will need is a set of polyhedral dice (although having two d6 speeds things up a bit) and a pencil.  Character generation will happen at the table.

Players: Rick Hunt, Alok Baikadi, Gregory Fox, Joe Carr (4 of 6)

 

Changeling: The Lost -- CANCELLED!

The fifth supplementary role-playing game line published by White Wolf.  It uses their signature Storytelling System for rules and is set in the new World of Darkness setting.  "Changelings" are ordinary human beings who were kidnapped by the Fae and taken as slaves to their world, but who have managed to return to Earth.  Like all of new World of Darkness, Changeling: The Lost uses dice pools of d10, made up of a combination of (usually) one Attribute and one Skill.

    @Naveed -- What game would you like to play?

      I think I'll skip then. Changeling was the only game I was interested in.

    • Ron R.

      Naveed, Changeling has been cancelled because the GM can't make it. A different game for you then?

  • Ron R.

    @Everyone -- I need some feedback as to what games you want to play. Otherwise it's a first come first serve basis and some of you may not get what you hoped for.

    @Robert Miller -- What game will it be for you?

    May 9, 2013

    • Robert M.

      Changed my RSVP Ron, nothing there interests me and I definitely don't want to spend table time doing character generation. Sorry, hope the tables make.

    Just an FYI: Atomic doesn't have anything on their meetup calendar for either date.

    • Isa M.

      I see it on their online store calendar.

    • Ron R.

      Once put on their Meetup calendar it would enable people to sign up for the event. We prefer having the sign ups on the RTR Meetup page, however, to be able to work with it. So no worries, this is very normal. :)
