What we're about

We are a meetup for people who want to play tabletop RPGs, other than D&D or Pathfinder. We like those systems, but feel there are already many groups for gamers who are interested in them. Instead, we'd like to provide opportunities to play the many other sytems out there—including FATE, GURPS, Savage Worlds, Shadowrun, Call of Cthulhu, World of Darkness, and many others. We would also like to make space for people who prefer role-playing and storytelling to power-gaming.

We run various public games in the Chicagoland area, and we hope we'll see you at one some time soon! We also hope you'll feel free to use the meetup to discuss and to look for players or games of you own.

Masks - Season 1 Finale!


Sorry for my tardiness in putting this one up (again)!

This is the final session of the first season of the campaign for our band of young heroes. No RSVPs for this one as the campaign is ongoing, but there will be more games posted in the next days and weeks that will be open to everyone.

A giant robot is smashing down Main Street. Your best friend tried to kiss you. Your mom thinks your grades need work. Your mentor thinks your team is bringing you down. Oh, and your costume is ripped.

Just another day in Halcyon City...

Masks: A New Generation is a superhero roleplaying game in which a team of young heroes fights villains, saves lives, and tries to figure out who they are—noble paragons? Dark avengers? Or regular kids? All against the backdrop of Halcyon City, the greatest city in the world.

Masks makes use of the same rules-light engine as Apocalypse World, Monsterhearts, Dungeon World, Urban Shadows, and Epyllion to create stories about young superheroes in the vein of Young Justice, Young Avengers, and Teen Titans.

So what’re you waiting for, hero? Time to get to work.

CyBorg (spillover group)


This game is for anyone who was on the waitlist for the first CyBorg game who can make it. If there are any spots left once those people get a chance to RSVP, they will be open to everyone else.
Cy_Borg is a nano-infested doomsday RPG about cybernetic misfits and punks raging against a relentless corporate hell. It has \Mörk Borg for a rules light, grunge heavy cyber punk experience.
▶ Poisonous space rocks, nuclear weapons, cyclical revolutions, warring nations, warring corporations, warring neighbors; pandemics, tsunamis, volcanoes. In between it all: direct person-machine interfaces, tactical neural implants, and bacteria from outer space hijacking intercellular nanorobotics. And the sky is full of ads.
▶ Everyone is interfaced/injected/in̴fe̴cted̶/infested with something. Everyone wants something from everyone else. Everyone is a liar and a cheat. Everyone wants more creds. ¤¤¤¤¤¤¤
