Details

One Last Job by Grant Howitt is a collaborative storytelling game, played around a table, with dice and pens and paper. Take on the role of a washed-up, past-their-best crew and tackle one last job that'll set you up for life.

The Second game of the night will be Dusk City Outlaws. It is inspired by books, TV shows, and movies like The Lies of Locke Lamora, Leverage, and Ocean's Eleven, where players take on the roles of thieves belonging to the eight cartels that rule the criminal underworld of a massive fantasy city. The players come together to form a crew and take on a job, planning and executing a criminal scheme and earning the respect of their peers.

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 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
