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 will run various games in the Chicagoland area. If you are interested in running a public game, let the organizers know. We are happy to give you a listing and will help you find a space or players, if you need them. Otherwise, we hope you'll use the meetup to discuss and to look for players or games of you own.

Hopefully we'll see you at en event some time soon!

Vampire 20th Anniversary Edition Dunning Asylum. The War to end all Wars is over. The world is healing. Welcome to the roaring 20s. Milk and Honey for everyone. Well everyone except the patients of Dunning. For them, nothing ever improves. October 24, 1929. Black Thursday.

Cthulhu and Other Horrors...Return to Potato Falls

Once again, strange things are afoot in the town of Potato Falls, Ohio. Eerie sounds in the trees, pale light in the window of an abandoned house, and movement in the shadows inside the sewer tunnel…They all seem to point to something. So why are all of the adults so unconcerned? Return to 1982 with the Potato Falls kids as they hop on their bikes—or into their Corvette—and investigate the mysterious forces lurking around their hometown. We'll be using the Dark Places & Demogorgons RPG rules, which are very easy to pick up. If you were with us last time, feel free to bring back your kid, or roll a new one. New players welcome as well. If you like Stranger Things, Goonies, and Stephen King's It, this game is for you!

Department Of Unconventional Philosophical Resolutions - A GURPS Steampunk Game

Hi there! We’re looking for a new player for our Steampunk game. Read on, and if you’re interested, let me know. The game will be in Mount Prospect, and the exact location will be revealed once you RSVP to the game. The next session will be on May 3rd at 7 PM, but I would like to meet you ahead of time, one on one, to make your character and go over the game. The year is 1896, in a world superficially like our own, but drastically different beneath the surface. The Department of Unconventional Philosophical Resolutions (or DUPR), a secret department of the Crown, investigates mad scientists and other unusual or unexplained threats to the British Empire. They wage a secret war against a cabal of Prussian nobles calling themselves "Das Ubersehen", and you are about to be recruited into there secret war. This is a GURPS Steampunk game that's kind of a 19th century X-FIles. Knowledge of GURPS would be helpful, but by no means necessary.
