Elf Day: From the creator of Fiasco, Jason Morningstar brings you Elf Day. Elf Day is their contribution for the 2018 Golden Cobras.
Young students in the first year of the healing track at wizard school are presented with their first challenge - the gemectomy simulator. Who will rise to the occasion and who will wash out? And what’s the deal with Elf Day, anyway?
Tags: Wizards, medicine, arts and crafts, creepy injustice, semi-larp/freeform
Soft start: 6:30pm
Hard start: 7:00pm
(It's ok if you can't make it by 6:30pm, but we'll be starting play at 7pm sharp...ish)
If you RSVP "yes", but your situation changes and you can't come, that's ok but please let us know. It affects our planning on the night.
=== About ===
In Elf Day your friends will take on the role of a student wizard practicing a
common surgical procedure on an elf simulator. They’ll have a chance to interact with their fellow students and you as an instructor, and in the end they will pass or fail. There may be some ethical challenges along the way!
(This game also teaches you how to perform an appendectomy, but shhh!)

=== About Weekly One-Shots ===
Weekly One-Shots is an opportunity for casual tabletop roleplaying, ideal for those who are into indie, story-based gaming, can't commit to long TRPG campaigns, or are too busy on weekends to game. We'll be playing a different game each week (more or less).
It's casual, so if you see a game come up that looks like it's up your alley, and the meetup suits your schedule, come along!
Also, if you want to request a game, or volunteer to run a game, please do so!

=== About one-shot tabletop roleplaying in general ===
• the whole game begins and ends in one session
• no need to commit to attending every week: just pick the games that appeal to you, or the dates that suit your schedule
• many one-shot systems are GM-less
• emphasis on storytelling and improvised acting, rather than dice-rolling, resource allocation, and probability-based strategy
• opportunity to sample lots of different gaming systems, genres, and gaming worlds
