What we're about

We're a welcoming group of roleplayers who play small press, narrative and storytelling games. If you are a gamer who wants to try something different from D&D or Pathfinder you would be really welcome to join us. We play games like Fiasco, Microscope, Monsterhearts and Hillfolk. Why not join us on a Saturday one our drop in and one-off games night in central Edinburgh or look to find other gamers if you are looking to join a regular gaming group?

We’ve had a lot of new folks to Open Saturday so just a few notes on how we arrange things:

- Any RPG game, any kind of gamer is welcome. Many of the regular hosts/GMs prefer indie and storytelling games

- if you want to host a game, or there is something specific you want to play just ask. We can’t promise but we’ll be as accommodating as we can.

- If you do want to host/run a game let me know when, and for how many players, so I can announce and promote for you.

- We’ve a few folks more used to more traditional RPG’s coming along at the moment. I’ll try to arrange at least one of these games a month (I can’t commit to running a planned game like this all the time so people will need to volunteer)

- A heads up that you are attending is appreciated but not necessary.

- Often people form more regular gaming groups off the back of attending. Generally we prefer one offs on Open Saturdays so folks can be casual on attendance.
