What we're about

The Garden State Gaming Society is a group of local adults (age 18+) who share the common interest for a variety of genres for role-playing games as well as board and non-collectible card games. We meet almost every week to play, discuss and test games of all kinds. It's a great way to meet new friends with similar interests.

Please note that meetups that involve, encourage, or promote illegal activity (including drug use) will be deleted.

Call of Cthulhu RPG: Down Darker Trails (1870)

The Bearded Dragon

We're looking for a few additional players ... no CoC experience necessary. We've started a new campaign set in the Old West circa 1870, using the Down Darker Trails setting from Chaosium. This is a horror-based mystery game, and is a departure from traditional heroic-based RPGs. Investigation, light role-playing and fun are our focus. But be sure to bring your Schofield or your Spencer Carbine! (OK, please don't really bring one). And don't worry - there will be plenty of opportunities to lose your mind ... *** FOR NEW PLAYERS *** Be sure your Meetup profile is setup to allow messaging, otherwise I WON'T BE ABLE TO RESPOND. New players should download and review the (free) 7th edition Quick Start PDF from the Chaosium website: http://www.chaosium.com/free-quick-start-pdf/ Select a profession and assign skills using the PDF. We'll help you adapt it to an 1870s investigator at game time. Down Darker Trails is not needed to get started.

Starfinder Society (SFS) at The Only Game in Town

The Only Game In Town

• What we'll do The Starfinder Society Roleplaying Guild is a worldwide science fantasy campaign that puts you in the role of an agent of the Starfinder Society. The gods have mysteriously spirited Golarion away to an unknown location and refuse to answer questions about it. In its place, the cultures of that world have evolved and spread throughout the solar system, especially to a vast space platform called Absalom Station. Gifted access to a hyperspace dimension by an ascended AI deity, the residents of the system suddenly find themselves with the ability to travel faster than light, and the race is on to explore and colonize potentially millions of worlds. But there are horrors out there in the darkness... The Only Game in Town is hosting Starfinder Society [SFS] (and many other RPGs such as Pathfinder Society and 5e) every Tuesday evening. The Starfinder Campaign will feature organized play scenarios allowing you to create and advance a character you can then take and legally play at any other SFS event , convention or homegame, wherever it occurs. Come on out and try Paizo's newest and fastest selling roleplaying game. New players are welcome and rules are taught. Pre-generated iconic characters will be available but you are welcome to bring your own SFS character if you already have one. ******** 10/15/19: We've been running sessions and are currently in the middle of Part II: The Reach of Empire. We currently have slots for another 1-2 players in the group if anyone is interested. Drop me a line at my email address: pfshenwy at gmail dot come if you're like more info on the game and the dates we'll be playing. I'm sometimes out of town and will forget to cancel sessions on the meetup so always double check with me if you're thinking about coming to a game. 8/20/19: We have started Against the Aeon Throne and are currently in Part 1.
