Manuel's Tavern will host our twelfth Intown Role Playing Game Day of 2016 on the first Saturday of December from 10AM til 5PM. We'll start play between 10AM and Noon-ish, depending on when Game Masters begin their respective games. 

If you're keen to run a game, then please fill out this form so we can add ya to the schedule: http://goo.gl/forms/FqEtvxph1j . If you'd like to play in a particular game, then reach out to the GM running that game and ask her or him to hold a spot for you. 

As always, Intown Atlanta RPG Day is open-invitation and beginner friendly. We seek to introduce new people to our hobby as well as give players of all experience levels a chance to meet one another. Please invite friends whom you believe would enjoy tabletop RPGs regardless of their experience.

The last time the Empty Star had risen in the sky, itwas more than fifty winters past, he said. Under the light of thatstrange star a portal had opened by the old stone mounds. He’dseen jewels in there and fine steel spears and enameled armor, buthe’d run when the iron men had attacked. Now, old and dying,he wishes he’d taken the chance on a life of adventure.

Scenario Description: In Dungeon World, you'll take on the role of an adventurer exploring lands of magic most wondrous and perils most dire as you quest for fame, gold, and glory... BUT NOT QUITE YET. First, your character(s) must survive her or his initial zero-level adventure. Think of this adventure as a backstory explaining how your humble villager passed through a funnel of formative experience into the life of a wandering heroine or hero. However, being a zero-level villager is kinda dangerous. Not all of your characters will make it through this funnel, which is why you'll make three of'em (and possibly more.) One of'em is bound to survive! The rest? They'll probably be pulped and baked into Plum Pudding.
