Hi everyone. First, click below to RSVP for the May RPGala:
May RPGala

I have to say, not that we don't ALWAYS have a good lineup of games, but the games this month are REALLY good. I am having a very tough time deciding what to play.

For those who are new or who forgot, this is how it works. 1)RSVP. 2)List your top THREE game choices, you may not get your first choice. 3)List FOOD:YES or FOOD:NO The RPGala is catered with *nearly* free food. 2 Dollars gets you a sandwich from Potbelly's Sandwiches and a soda. Additional soda can be purchased. 4)Show up. If you RSVP yes, please show up unless an actual, bonafide emergency arises. The GMs are counting on your attendance.

If you have already RSVP'd (THANK YOU!), please be so kind as to update your RSVP with the above information. THANKS!!!

Directions can be found in the main listing for the event. The event is this Saturday from 12-5 at the MLK Jr. Library in DC. Show up a little early because games START at 12 noon.

Here are the games for this month:

Spirit of the Century/GM-Mel/Type-One Shot/4-6 Players
"The Century Club is renovating its Hub City headquarters, bringing in art from the best European artists. The Club's efforts have attracted the attention of foreign powers, who will stop at nothing to get their hands on the Club's new decor!"

Spirit of the Century is a Pulp Novel RPG that utilizes a unique, fun, and unobtrusive system that encourages creative thought and roleplaying.

Savage Worlds/GM-Erskin/Type-One Shot/3 Players
You have no time now to ponder the strangeness you see about you on this unfamiliar world. You have a mission to complete -- the success of which affects the life of each and every Earthling on the planet.

Will the Earthlings realize you come in peace? Will the your superior technology amaze or frighten? Will you succeed in your mission? The fate of the world is in your little green hands!

This one-shot adventure is based on the B-movies of the 1950s and uses the "Fast, Furious, and Fun" Savage Worlds gaming system. The adventure offers opportunites for both social roleplaying and creative problem solving as well as grand action combat.

All materials (including pregenerated characters) will be provided. No experience with Savage Worlds, or even roleplaying in general, is required.

Dungeon and Dragons, 4th Edition/GM-Rishi/Type-One Shot/4-6 Players
I will be running Keep on the Shadowfell, which is the first published module utilizing the 4E rules. The mod comes with five pregenerated characters and quickstart rules. Here is the official description: The town of Winterhaven stands watch over a ruined keep that was once a bastion of good in the realm. This keep overlooks the Shadow Rift, a dark scar in the world that was once a gateway to the Shadowfell but has been dormant for many years. Now, an evil cleric of Orcus, Demon Lord of the Undead, seeks to re-open the gate, and the only thing standing in his way is a small yet determined band of heroes.

Khymir/GM-Rich/Type-One Shot/4-6 Players
Join a stalwart group of adventurers in the gritty fantasy world of Khymir. This new game was designed by Mark Rogers (author of the Nightmare of God and Zorachus) and veteran GM Dr. Rich Staats. Rules will be taught. Play in a world where good is good and evil is EVIL. Characters increase in power both through success and failure, and risk taking is rewarded.

Exalted/GM-Josh/Type-Campaign/4-6 Players
PLEASE NOTE: This is a new Exalted Campaign

In a world where Heaven is run by divine and massively corrupt bureaucrats, where slavery is a fact of life and marauding things from beyond the boundaries of Creation imperil the existence of everything, and the only thing keeping them at bay is a decadent empire of supernatural and dogmatic aristocrats, one would not expect to find much in the way of hope. But that's all changing now - the Solar Exalted, the champions of the Unconquered Sun and former masters of the Creation, are returning from their centuries-long absence. The enemies of the Solars might have wealth, training, knowledge, and numbers, but if the records of the First Age are any indication, they are certainly no match for the sheer might of Solars who can fully appreciate and control their power.

You will play one of these Solar Exalts, in the Southern jungles of An-Teng, a land suffering greatly under the imperial yoke of the Realm of the Dragon-Blooded, the once-treacherous underlings to the Solars who slew their masters and Usurped their position. Will you seek to right past wrongs and injustices against your previous incarnations and your people?

Exalted is a world of high fantasy, sorcery, magitech, gods, demons, mysterious fortresses, and righteous martial arts butt-kickings. PCs are Champions of the Unconquered Sun, the most (potentially) powerful entities in the whole setting, and starting characters reflect this - you will start play with the power to seriously upset the status quo of the world. If you'd like to try something that lets you do more more quickly and have a real impact on the game world, try Exalted.

If you'd like to make your own character in advance, please contact me. Otherwise, pregens will be available.

Spycraft 2.0/GM-Gabriel/Type-One Shot/3-6 Players
Operation Tiger Hunt

When one of their leaders is captured and finally put on trial for past crimes, a Balkan extremist group threatens severe reprisals if he is convicted. The agents are in a race against time to find the would-be terrorists and prevent them from following through on their ominous promises.

This Spycraft 2.0 mission is suitable for 3-6 players and uses pre-generated characters. No prior knowledge of Spycraft is needed.

Dark Heresy/GM-Christopher Campbell/Type-One Shot/Up to 5 Players
Part detective story, part gothic psycho-drama; Dark Heresy combines futuristic horror and investigative gameplay, creating a role-play heavy environment that is a blast for fans of the 40K setting or gothic/horror-genre as a whole. Similar in theme and play to a far-future Call of Cthulhu/Delta Green, all characters are initiates in the ranks of the Holy Ordos of the God-Emperor's mighty Inquisition. It is their duty to investigate possible heresy and uncover the true nature and depth of the horrors that lie beneath the filthy surface of the unholy. As Inquisitors, characters move through the Imperium like an avenging shadow, striking down daemons, aliens and heretics by the will of his Lord the Ever-Vigilant Savior, the God-Emperor of Mankind.

This new game from Fantasy Flight Games ( is the most recent edition to the Warhammer RP family. Not to be confused with the Games Workshop Miniature war-game of the same name, Dark Heresy is a table-top roleplaying game based in the same, bleak, gothic universe. For the Gala, I'll be running an intoductory one-shot that will highlight the unique aspects and mechanics of the system and the themes and setting of the universe. I can take up to 5 players for this go-around.

Thanks folks. See you @ the Gala
