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.

Spirit of '77 - Action packed one-shot

Online event

Evel Knievel and Pam Grier. Alice Cooper and Bruce Lee. Smokey and the Bandit and the Six Million Dollar Man. Shaft. Spirit of 77 is a combination of muscle cars and Mack trucks, CB radios and kung fu fighters, cross-country road races and big scores in the big city with a killer soundtrack. Can you dig it? Put the pedal to the metal and drop the hammer. We got places to go, ammo to use and buckets of fuel to burn. This isn’t a game about exploring deep personal relationships between characters; it’s about fast-drawing gangsters leading angry cops on a non-stop high-speed chase through rain-slick city streets, swaggering away from explosions in slow motion and striking a cool pose while delivering an awesome one-liner at just the right time. In this installment: The players run afoul of both the local brewery and the highway patrol after stealing a truck with a surprise cargo. Will they get caught, and what will happen if they do? Play to find out.
