CATRPGS is a Tabletop Role-Playing game organization with the purpose of creating an inclusive, safe community for Tabletop RPGers around Columbus to get together and play games with each other. We will be hosting some official meetups at different locations around Columbus and will be creating a schedule of any open gaming events going on at gaming stores or other venues.
What You Can Expect Our focus is Tabletop Role-playing games like D&D, Fiasco, Fate, Shadowrun, Gurps, Smaller Independent Games, etc. So long as it is a tabletop role-playing game or ttrpg related, awesome!
• Official CATRPGS Meetups - We will be scheduling some meetup events at various open locations. Bring a game to run, post about it in the event discussion to get players, find games to jump into.
• Open Gaming Schedule - We'll have a schedule or what open gaming occurs at different locations around columbus. If you know of some we don't, let us know.
• A Venue To Connect - We invite you to use the discussion forums here and elsewhere to find a group, look for players, set up your own games.
What We Expect From Members Gaming is best when we can all do it together. Our goal is a safe and inclusive environment, one that is open, safe, and welcoming fore everyone, especially people new to the hobby. We expect members to act with respect and help create comfortable places we can all game together where we feel included and comfortable.
Why CATRPGS? It's a decent acronym and doubles as a punny joke about CAT RPGs, of which there are many.
Why Syndicate? CABS and a few other groups around Columbus already use Society, and it's a great word, but Syndicate means "a group of individuals or organizations combined to promote some common interest". The collaborative nature of Tabletop Gaming is something that is unique, and we want to operate in a way to leverages that nature. Plus, syndicate just sounds cool and kind of mysterious, and lets us get a logo made of a menacing cat.
