What we're about

WHO ARE WE & WHAT WE DO: We are a Cinema House for the Mind, specializing in Dungeons & Dragons (and other fantasy and sci fi role playing games) for newcomers and veterans alike!

We are here to provide a comfortable and welcoming environment to not only play the game but to experience it. For our (GMs) game masters D&D and other roleplaying games aren't just games, but vehicles of entertainment, self-expression, reflection, team building, and community building that when facilitated well create an emotionally unforgettable experience.

We invite you to join this beginner friendly D&D (5th edition) based group whether you are looking for a casual game or a full on campaign.

Our games encourages players to steer the course of the adventure. Everything is provided for you. To get a feel for the games check out:

WHAT YOU NEED TO GET STARTED:

We provide all of the essentials for you. You don't need to worry about bringing dice, mini's, maps or anything else! Just show up ready to have fun. (applies to in person games but we also provided access to most digital content as well!)

First timers: For your first session you can choose from a pre-made character or build your own.

WHY DO WE CHARGE A TICKET FEE?

We all pay for high quality entertainment and D&D is no different. Now don't get us wrong, we are not saying you NEED to pay to play D&D. If you have a great home group of friends you’ve been playing with for years and/or a solid group you play with at a game shop then we may not be for you. That said, maybe you are that "forever GM" who's always running the game but never gets to play a character. Maybe you are part of a group in which players constantly flake or that group of friends who have been too busy to get together recently. Maybe you have played a lot of games where the GM just didn’t seem well prepared. Maybe you are newcomer or an old player coming back to the game and you are looking for a great place to jump back in! If any of those apply to you then RSVP for a game. Our GMs treat D&D with passion and professionalism which adds to your overall experience. Below are just a few reasons why we believe a good gaming session is worth paying for!

· Accountability: GMs plan session according to the number of players who RSVP and tickets hold players accountable to attending games. This makes a better experience for everyone at the table.

· Leveling Up: We see skilled GMs no different from artists, musicians, writers, directors, teachers, and the like. If you have been doing something long enough with proficiency (pun intended) there’s nothing wrong getting paid for it. (In D&D this is essentially adventuring 101. Adventures are usually offered coin for completing said adventure. )

· Time & Money: On average our GMs spend 3 to 8 hours planning a single session. They are often spending their own cash for modules, game books, miniatures, digital products, dice, etc. to give their players an awesome game!

TICKET PRICING:

· Games range from $6 to $30 per session with price being based on GM experience level, time and prep cost, overall estimated length of session, and cap on number of players at the table.

· Note that we are not clock watchers and session often typically go over our allotted time due to everyone having so much fun. We will never charge for going over.

Our Code of Conduct

Purpose

Our primary goal is to facilitate collaborative adventure based storytelling through the medium of Tabletop Role Playing Games (TTRPG’s). We are committed to providing well crafted games that not only entertain but provide friendly, safe, and welcoming environments for all players.

This code of conduct outlines our expectations for everyone who participates in this community, as well as consequences for unacceptable behavior.

Expected Behavior:

All players should come to the table prepared to have fun while being aware to be respectful to all others at the same time. All players should be allowed time and space to express their opinions and listen respectfully, regardless of whether or not you agree with the other player’s opinion.

Refrain from demeaning, discriminatory, or harassing behavior and speech.

We see Game Masters like artists and therefore do not believe in stifling their voice or censoring their games.

Sometimes games will cover more mature subject matter such as body horror, suspense, terror, violent combat, language, and/or sexual themes. The gamemaster should make this clear in game descriptions and discuss possible themes and subject matter before a game. If players are uncomfortable with any particular scenario, they should refrain from participating in that session. If the session breaks any rules players should report it. (See unacceptable behavior below)

Depictions of specific sensitive subject material should be avoided for club games. E.g. Hate crime, rape, domestic and child abuse

Unacceptable Behavior:

Disagreements are a natural part of the game, but the attacking or use of verbal abuse to fellow members of the table will not be tolerated.

Offensive comments (in or out of character) based on race, gender, sexuality, religion, or politics will not be tolerated.

Players of gamemasters who talk to other players in a condescending or belittling way will not be tolerated.

Consequences of Unexpected Behavior:

Offenders of the Code of Conduct will receive a verbal warning for the first offense. Consequences for multiple offenders include, but are not limited to, offenses temporary suspension from a particular table up to being permanently banned from the Group.

Reporting Guidelines:

Please report any perceived violations of the Code of Conduct to your Game Master. If that makes you feel uncomfortable, or if your issue is with a particular Game Master’s behavior, then please immediately message the head Game Master, Malcolm. He will respond ASAP.
