July In hall Rotation

As there is a light, and no its not over at Frankenstein's Place, but is the glimmer of in Real Life Tabletop Roleplay Games on Wednesday nights from 7pm at 8-10 Glanville Rd, Bromley BR2 9JA.
I thought it prudent to highlight the games that will be running:

So how does this sign up system work?

Well gone is the shared google sheet - yay I hear you cry
Instead there is a form, dun dun dunnnnnn
All you need to do is enter your name and select a minimum of two games you would like to play (you can select them all).

How it works:

  1. Each member selects number of games being run -1, ie in this case three games are being run so you selected a minimum of two games you would like to play. 
  2. Then when all members have nominated the games they would like to play, in tables in the background dived the number of players by the number of games.
  3. Then it looks to evenly distribute and set each game up with those minimum numbers.

Say Whattttt

Well, shove your details into the google form
These details get fed into a sheet, looking something like:
Example of 3 games and 12 players having listed their 2 min games

From here through a series of Auto calcs/removals etc, something like this is produced.

Which means:

  • Game 1:
    • Player 1, Player 4, Player 5, Player 9
  • Game 2:
    • Player 3, Player 7, Player 10, Player 11
  • Game 3:
    • Player 2, Player 6, Player 8, Player 12

The idea is that:

  • Every player is playing a game they selected.
  • Each game table has equal number of members, so there is room on each table for new members to rotate between games.
  • Each game should now be stable
So sign up now for July rotation.

Running your combat in "Theatre of the Mind" a different Roleplaying experience

First off this is not just limited to Dungeons & Dragons, but can be applied to all systems. How To Run Narrative Combat For those used to running RPGs using a gridded battle map and miniatures, running narrative "theatre of the mind" combat can feel both terribly strange and strangely familiar. If we're used to running combat on a 5 foot per square grid, the switch to combat in the theatre of the mind can easily make us feel like something is missing. How can we really know what's going on in combat if we can't see it? The answer lies in the other two pillars of our game—exploration and interaction. We don't set up battle maps and lay out miniatures when our characters have a discussion with an NPC. We likely don't set up a big map and start counting off squares when the characters explore an ancient ruin (although we can!). We don't have visual queues when we're describing how a thief narrowly avoids a poisoned pin while attempting to disarm

Proposed Game: Ghosts of Saltmire

System D&D 5e Game Master Calum Venue: Glanville Hall Wednesday night A mixture of Roleplaying and action, nestled on the coast of the Azure Sea is Saltmarsh, a sleepy fishing village that sits on the precipice of destruction. Smugglers guide their ships to hidden coves, willing to slit the throat of anyone fool enough to cross their path. Cruel sahuagin gather beneath the waves, plotting to sweep away coastal cities. While Saltmarsh slumbers, the evils that seek to plunder it grow stronger.

Proposed Game: Two Wrongs

System Era: Hitman Game Master Mark C Venue: Glanville Hall Wednesday night In this game, you are a hitman, an assassin who eliminates targets for anyone paying the right amount. Whether your skill is stealth, approaching your enemies unseen, firing a bullet from a neighbouring rooftop, hacking automated defences or demolishing a building to eliminate everyone inside, you are always in demand. You might be new to being an assassin, or you might be a grizzled veteran about ready for retirement. None of this matters to the Assassins’ Guild; only that you can complete the job and your team are assigned. With the protection of the Guild, you need not fear retribution once you escape the scene of the crime – the scrubbers have your back. Every trace of you, every piece of camera footage, everyone who will testify that you were there will vanish without a trace. As a result, joining the Assassin’s Guild was never a hard decision for you, even with the possible downsides... When you are in t
