Interview with a GM - Freddie

Hi as one of the three GMs for the October Rotation in venue, I thought of a bit of a mini interview on you. When did you first start playing RPGs and what were they? About 4 or 5 years ago. I moved to a new area and did not know anyone. Looking on MeetUp, this looked quite interesting so I gave it a go…  I started playing in a Cthulhu game and then played some D&D 5e. I enjoyed the stories and interaction. What was the most memorable part of those sessions? I enjoyed the roleplaying aspects, playing different and wacky characters. I also enjoyed the stories and developing characters within the world. It is those interactions that were most memorable. If you have put time and effort into creating a character who has a nice backstory, acted consistently within the world and developed a personality, it’s tough to roll a D100 sanity and hope that this one roll does not mark the end. Why did you start GMing? Just wanted to give it a go to be honest. Seemed fun… How long have you been G

Interview with a GM - George

Hi as one of the four GMs for the October Rotation in venue, I thought of a bit of a mini interview on you. When did you first start playing RPGs and what were they? I started playing RPG's in school, GURPS and 3.5 DnD. We were young and it was a chaotic mess where we barely understood the rules... but it was the stepping stone to better games later. What was the most memorable part of those sessions? The most memorable part of those sessions, and any session in RPG games really, is the memorable story beats. Whether it's something the GM has been planning, a player throwing a curveball or a combat round creating a story: all exciting stuff Why did you start GMing? I started GMING recently, just last year. My resident 'forever DM' was getting burnout so I stepped in for some oneshots How long have you been GMing? Oops, I answered this in the last one. I started last year properly, there might have been a casual game I ran one session of much earlier... but since I can&#

October Rotation where 4 become 3

There are 4 games being proposed for the October Rotation in hall which is excellent. To try and ensure the maximum amount of viable games, those 4 will become 3. How, I hear you scream...

October Rotation

Hi, we are starting to get some pitches in for next Rotation, so I thought it would be best to pull some of them together to tout some interest and support. As always they can be viewed on our website . But for a snapshot summary read further....

Proposed Game: Baldur's Gate: Descent into Avernus

System D&D 5e Game Master Freddie In Hall Looking to run from October with a party of 4 or so. It's a relatively long campaign but takes you into hell, so what's not to like! It starts in the city of Baldur's Gate "as it slowly succumbs to the sway of corrupt powers and evil gods".  The adventurers will go on a search for redemption as they descend into Avernus, the first layer of the Nine Hells, which is ruled by the Archdevil Zariel.  Players will also have the option of wading into the Blood War.

Proposed Game: Deadlands

System Savage Worlds Game Master David H In this award-winning, best-selling setting, gunfighters, braves, hucksters, martial artists, shamans, mad scientists, the blessed, and more square off against far more than desperate bandits.  An event called "The Reckoning" awakened an ancient evil, and you'd best hope the howls you hear on the High Plains are just a pack of ravenous wolves...

Proposed Game: Alien

System Free League Publishing Game Master Paul In Hall "I can't lie to you about your chances, but... you have my sympathies." Space is vast, dark, and not your friend. Gamma rays and neutrino bursts erupt from dying stars to cook you alive, black holes tear you apart, and the void itself boils your blood and seizes your brain. Try to scream an no one can hear you — hold your breath and you rupture your lungs. Space isn't as empty as you'd think, either — its frontiers are ever expanding. Rival governments wage a cold war of aggression while greedy corporations vie for valuable resources. Colonists reach for the stars and gamble with their lives — each new world tamed is either feast or famine. And there are things lurking in the shadows of every asteroid — things strange and different and deadly. Things alien. This is the official ALIEN tabletop roleplaying game—a universe of body horror and corporate brinkmanship, where synthetic people play god while space tru
