What we're about

Welcome to the Hong Kong tabletop gaming group!

Here you will find some ongoing, regular events:

- Dungeons & Dragons 5e games on Monday, Thursday and Friday; contact the GMs to find out more about these and whether they have openings for new players.

- One-Shot Saturday, an open-table, no-commitment RPG meeting every Saturday in Sheung Wan. It's ideal for people who are new to Hong Kong or to roleplaying games, and people with busy schedules. One-Shot Saturday also has a Facebook group, which you can join here to find out what's on or share you ideas for upcoming games: https://www.facebook.com/groups/oneshotsaturdays

In addition to these, you can use this group to set up your own game sessions – maybe you want play some board games, or you have a particular RPG you want to try out. Starting a discussion thread is a good way to find people to join you! Send a direct message to the group organisers if you need help setting up an event.

WHAT IS A TABLETOP RPG?
It's a game in which you never know where the next stop will be, because it’s all down to the decisions you and your fellow players make.

Usually one person is the Game Master (or "GM"). Everyone else will be players, taking the role of the characters in the game. The players get to say what their characters say, think, and do. The GM describes everything else in the world.
Then... we play to find out what happens.

The game is a conversation: I say something, then you reply, maybe someone else chimes in. We talk about what's happening to the characters we imagine and the world around them. We also talk about the rules, which help us decide what happens next if the next step is in doubt.

The rules differ from game to game: some use dice to shape the story, others use cards or something else. It's always a conversation, though.

D&D 5E - "The Bathrobe Brigade"

3/F 346 Jaffe Road

**CLOSED GROUP** Hi all! This 5th Edition D&D campaign is already full up and in progress! Will update if a slot becomes available! Dead are rising, dark lords returning, the end of the world is nigh. But that why would that stop this group of idiots having fun? Current Roster: Me! (Rick DM) Brennan Eric Derrick Dan David Currently meeting at a lovely but small mahjong parlor in Wan Chai/Causeway Bay. Please don't add yourself if you're not on this list! We've gotten requests from people to watch but unfortunately, the venue is a bit too tiny for that!

5E D&D Friday Nights

Baptist Oi Kwan Social Service

Run by Gus, a 5e sandbox campaign that starts somewhere from 6 to 7 and ends typically at 9:30. It's on the third floor, just ask where Gus is. Meetup is set to repeat every week as a broadcast, even though it won't run every single week as displayed, so do ask Gus for the whatsapp group to keep up to date with current events and if it's running or not.

One-Shot Saturday (tabletop RPG): The Legend of the Golden Condor (EAMB)

An indigenous legend describes a sacred grotto, filled with gold, in the unexplored areas of Brazil's interior. Many have already disappeared in an attempt to find this treasure. Dom Casimiro de Lucena, however, believes that this story is a clue to the whereabouts of an object far more valuable than gold. When he also disappears, will your group of adventurers will be able to follow in the footsteps of Dom Casimiro and unravel this centuries-old mystery? This session will use the Elephant & Macaw Banner system, as part of 'Elephant & Macaw Day' – ready-made characters will be provided. WHAT IS ONE-SHOT SATURDAY? It's a weekly meet-up in Sheung Wan/Central, focusing on indie games and single-session games (one-shots). 而家所有游戏係英文嘅但如果你要嚟玩中文游戏,我哋會無任歡迎。只要湊啱玩家就行! You can drop in and play at any One-Shot Saturday – you do not need to have played in a previous session or commit to playing again. Whether you've played an RPG before or not, you're welcome to join us. Join the conversation, make plans, suggest games to play, etc. — Facebook group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/oneshotsaturdays/ _________ WHAT IS A TABLETOP RPG?
