What we're about

"The most merciful thing in the world... is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents."

- H.P. Lovecraft, The Call of Cthulhu

Terrifying Tabletop is a New York City Horror Roleplaying group open to any and all who are interested in playing or running a roleplaying game! While focused primarily on Horror RPGs like Call of Cthulhu, World of Darkness, and Night's Black Agents; other games--especially indie or experimental games--are welcome and encouraged.

Gamers of all experience levels--including beginners as well as veterans--all are welcome!

And if you are interested in running a game yourself as a GM/Keeper/Storyteller just send a message to one of the Organizers and we'll get you setup as an Event Organizer! Anyone who wants to organize a game is more than welcome to do so!

Only War, Shellshock!!!!

Bread & Butter

"You are a humble guardsman in his holy service! You will fight all the enemies of man in the name of the Emperor! Each foe is a stepping stone to our salvation! Onward you dogs to victory! And for each one of you who fall ten more will take his place!!!!" --Lord General Monthgomery So this is going to be a very simple and brutal campaign where you need to survive the horrors of the 41st Millennium... You will have your wits and your brothers and sisters in arms to survive this... And remember you are not a Space Marine, not a member of the prestigious elite rogue trader family, nor a member of his holy inquisition... You are a simple guardsman, and guardsmen die in the name of the emperor... This is for the Only War RPG from Fantasy Flight Character sheets, dice and pencils will be provided on site! This session will focus on regiment and char creation!

Mouse Guard One Shot

Bread & Butter

Mouse Guard is a low fantasy setting where mice have gained sentience and now have a semi thriving civilization deep in the woods. The peace is kept by the Mouse Guard, a group of highly specialized rangers who fight threats, oversee town disputes and negotiations, and deliver the mail. I will be running a pregen adventure, with pregen characters. Dice will be provided.

Terrifying Tabletop Monthly Meet and Greet

Bread & Butter

(The date is currently tentative, I'll notify if it changes) Hello All and Welcome to the 25th meet and greet of Terrifying Tabletop. We have been going for over 2 Years. We are still looking for new Game Masters to run games for our meetup, so if you are interested, please contact me and I can set you up as an Event Organizer. I figured it would be best to have a general monthly meetup so we can gather, meet, exchange info and ideas and maybe play some board/card games. This will be the perfect opportunity to share with the group, your thoughts and feelings and which tabletop games you would like to play. Anyone interested in running a game can also speak with me and we can discuss making you an Event Organizer for this group. I'll be sure to bring some games like, Cthulhu Munchkin, Fluxx and Zombies!!! and feel free to bring your favorite games to play. We'll most likely only be spending an 1 hour & 1/2 to 2 hours unless the night takes us elsewhere. This Meetup has really taken off and we've met some really cool people, I can't wait to meet more of you. Any questions or concerns? Feel Free to ask in the comments.

Warhammer 40k Deathwatch: Enlightening Truth

On the fringes of the Imperium alien races lurk and plot while chaos daemons leak into our reality from the torment of the warp... The Emperor foresaw the need for warriors without equal, they are more than man, they are steel, they are doom, they are the Space Marines, Adeptus Astartes, they are his Angels of Death! Amongst these magnificent angels, there is the Deathwatch, these Elite Xeno hunters who strike with true fear and precision... Ending nightmares before they begin...
