What we're about

Welcome to the RPG Switzerland Meetup Group!

Calling all adventurers! Let's play some Dungeons and Dragons, Call of Cthulhu and many other role-playing games on a tabletop, with pen and paper and rolling dice. We started this group to meet other role-playing enthusiasts, beginner and experienced alike, to get together and play characters through endless adventures.

Dungeons and Dragons is the most popular tabletop role-playing game of all time. The game is played usually with 4 to 6 players. One person takes the role of storyteller, AKA the Dungeon Master or DM, and narrates the story in a high fantasy world filled with magic, monsters, romance, intrigue, and adventure. The rest of the players take on the roles of individual fictional characters and explore that world, often becoming the heroes of a completely interactive story. Different shaped dice are used to determine the outcome of attempted actions.

Finding players and scheduling RPG games is a little more complicated than just showing up for a game. Our goal is to make this happen for as many DMs and players as possible.

If you're new to Roleplaying Games or a seasoned player, whether you're an experienced DM or are curious but worried to try, join our group, and get in touch with our vibrant community.

Our games are primarily in English, though we mostly speak it as a second language, so don't worry about not being fluent. We run introductory games for first timers, one shot adventures (a one evening only adventure), and mini and long campaigns which can run from a few sessions to many months.

Join our Discord (https://discordapp.com/invite/r5CMgtq) server for more shenanigans.

Call for DMs

After only a few months of opening this group, we are over 180 adventurers already and most are players. Although we wish we could run games for all these players, we are quite dependent on volunteer DMs to propose games to players of our community. If you're a DM and would like to participate, please let us know. We have lots of resources we can make available to you to help you out and organize finding the players, find a venue and publish your adventure.

You've never been a DM but don't feel enough experienced yet or you just don't feel ready? We can help too. We helped several new DMs, even some who never played RPGs before, get their feet wet with a very easy adventure to run the Lost Mine of Phandelver and with beginner players to discover D&D with. It's a lot of fun.

If you want to be a DM with us, please get in touch with any of our organizers.

Betrayal at Baldur's Gate

Online event

The shadow of Bhaal has come over Baldur's Gate, summoning monsters and other horrors from the darkness! As you build and explore the iconic city's dark alleys and deadly catacombs, you must work with your fellow adventurers to survive the terrors ahead. That is, until some horrific evil turns one — or possibly more — of you against each other. Was it a mind flayer's psionic blast or the whisperings of a deranged ghost that caused your allies to turn traitor? You have no choice but to keep your enemies close! **WHAT WE WILL DO** We will play the Boardgame Betrayal at Baldur's Gate using the Virtual Tabletop Simulator Simulator application. Which means you will need to buy it directly from Steam https://store.steampowered.com/app/286160/Tabletop_Simulator/ Betrayal at Baldur's Gate is a board game in which the players contribute to the outcome of it actively in every one of their turns, discovering new locations, treasures and monsters as they explore. At some point during the game, one of the player's becomes the enemy and plots against the others, making it a collaborative and competitive game at the same time.

Natural and Unnatural [Numenéra] [One Shot]

Hirschwiesenstrasse

IMPORTANT: This will be an in-person game. It will be played outside on a big, private terrace. There will be 4 players at a table that seats 6 and the GM will sit at a small additional table. Please don't join if you are part of a risk group, close to people in a risk group or if you are in quarantine. Remember to wash your hands regularly, wear masks in ÖV and keep your tracking app active. The event might still be changed into an online event. • What to expect In this adventure strange creatures stole the only source of fresh water a village has. It is your job to travel into their lair and retrive it. Get to know the Cypher System and discover the weird Ninth World. The Cypher System was developed by Monte Cook and is a pretty easy and quick game engine. It facilitates player creativity and focuses heavily on storytelling. This is the first of a planned event of Numenéra Intro Games. The idea behind them is to play several One Shots with different people, depending on the interest. In the end, if enough people like the system, we might start a Numenéra Campaign. • What to bring Your favorite d20. If you don't have one, I can lend you one. Paper and Pencil. Some snacks and drinks for everyone. Hand disinfectant. Everyone is welcome! •What is Numenera? "Set a billion years in our future, Numenéra is a tabletop roleplaying game about exploration and discovery. The people of the Ninth World suffer through a dark age, an era of isolation and struggle in the shadow of the ancient wonders crafted by civilizations millennia gone. But discovery awaits for those brave enough to seek out the works of the prior worlds. Those who can uncover and master the numenera can unlock the powers and abilities of the ancients, and perhaps bring new light to a struggling world." - Monte Cook Games • Join our Discord In order to receive information from the GM on the adventure, ask your questions and meet your fellow adventuring friends, please join our Discord server (https://discordapp.com/invite/r5CMgtq) and ask for me. The definite adress will be disclosed then.
