Mini RPG Con

  • to
  • Grand Arena of Mind Expansion

    8900 N. Armenia Avenue, Tampa, FL (map)

    28.031654 -82.484955

  • Come join us for our quarterly MINI-RPG Convention. We will have guest GMs with one shot, single campaigns set in a variety of genres and systems. 

    No experience necessary. If you have ever wanted to learn to role play, we will have games for beginners. GMs will provide pre-generated characters and explain the system mechanics. 

    Veterans, have you wanted to try a new system? This event is for you too. 

    We will be running two major sessions, from noon until 5pm and another from 6pm to 11pm. GM's will present one or more systems and the members will sign up for the settings that interest them most. 

    Game Masters...want to get in for free? Do you have a one shot campaign/demo of your favorite system with intriguing characters? Looking for new players for a regular game? Register your game with the club (email [masked]) and if approved, we will post your game below. 

    Note: As with all activities at Grand Arena, membership to the club and an activity fee is required. There is no gambling, smoking or alcoholic beverages allowed in the club. If you have never been to the club before, ask for a free tour (including the Artemis Bridge, if it is not in use). Come see what comforts and amenities the club has to offer you and your gaming group.

    I will have several games to choose from, mostly in the Cyphersystem (don't worry, it s a quick system to learn, Utilizes D20 and a D6 for MOST of its rolls). I also have a few in GURPS system (which utilized 3 D6)

    Numenera: (Explore the Ninth world over the runes of 8 fallen civilizations)
    - Shadewalker
    - The Hideous Game
    The Strange: (Think "Men in Black" meets "Warehouse 13"
    - Mastodon
    - Dread Expectations (Be your own super hero)

    GURPS (from Steve Jackson Games)
    - Stargate SG-99: All Roads lead to Rome
    - Doctor Who: Ghost of a Rose Note: I am also working to converting some game systems down to Cypher, like Battlestar Galactica, Stargate, Fallout and more (can you tell I like that system?) IF I get them done before the mini-con, I will offer them as well.

    Once more I'll be running my two sessions that I usually do. In the afternoon game I'll be running Savage Worlds.

    Savage worlds hails itself as fast, furious, and fun. It is a genre unspecific system that you can play just about anything. This games theme will be Cyberpunk. Set in the distant dystopian future you take on the roles of troubleshooters and runners. Taking side jobs to keep food on the table.

    The second session will be my usual Marvel Heroic Roleplaying Game but with a Christmas twist. All the heroes in New York loved Christmas a lot, but Dr. Doom who lived in Latveria did not.
    Doom hated Christmas! The whole Christmas Season! Don't ask why, no one knows the reason.
    And the more Dr. Doom thought of what Christmas would bring, the more Dr. Doom thought, "I must stop this whole thing!"
    "Why, for fifty-three years I've put up with it now! I MUST stop this Christmas from coming! But HOW?" Then he got an idea! An awful idea! DOCTOR DOOM GOT A WONDERFUL, AWFUL IDEA!
