What we're about

We are a group of Decatur area game players, looking to Meetup with other gamers.

We host several "official" Meetups per month (consult the Calendar (http://www.decaturgamers.com/calendar/)). Everyone is welcome to attend these "Open Game Nights," we will have games available for you to try, or you can bring your own to share!

Most of our events are family-friendly (we'll let you know in advance if it's not!), so bring the spouse, kids, mom & dad - whomever likes to play games!

DON'T BE SHY! Even if you have no idea how to play a game we're playing, just let us know - we are happy to teach you!

We're friendly, easy to get along with, and fun! Join us!

Midgard Adventures (5e) - Everyone Lies

Needs a location

The regions of Midgard spin around the Crossroads like spokes around a wheel. Everything that goes from north to south, and east to west, passes along the River Argent, the Sultan’s Road, the Great Northern Road, and other well-trod trade routes, all with their own difficulties and dangers.

But the nations that thrive in the heartland know how to spin copper into gold, and how to turn a sinking barge into a prince’s ransom. Though they borrow language, customs, tools, and even gods from all their neighbors, the Crossroads have their own code, their own pride, and their own way of doing business.

Born in the fires of revolution, the Free City of Zobeck shares borders with the dwarven Ironcrag cantons, the undead-ruled Blood Kingdom of Morgau, the human kingdom of the Magdar, and the female-dominated Duchy of Perun’s Daughter. Together, these regions—along with the Margreve forest, the Cloudwall Mountains, and the subterranean cities of the Ghoul Imperium and Lillefor—constitute the Crossroads of Midgard.

Welcome to the beating heart of the world.

This is part one of a multi-part 5e game set in the world of Midgard. Players can come and go from the campaign as needed, as this is more akin to individual missions than a full campaign. Pre-generated characters will be available if you want, or you can bring your own/create one on the first night.
