Proposed Game - Original Adventures Reincarnated #5: Castle Amber

System D&D 5e Game Master Andrew Venue: Glanville Hall Wednesday night In 1981 a game called Castle Amber was released by TSR to be run with the Expert D&D set. In a nutshell the characters get stuck in a mysterious mansion and have to find their way out. Castle Amber has been updated to 5th edition and is described as the perfect old-school “funhouse dungeon”. However, I can assure you that Pat Sharp will not be making an appearance! Follow this link for further information about the game.

Proposed Game: Fee-Fi-Phobia

System D&D 5e Game Master Marco Venue: Glanville Hall Wednesday night It is set a year after Giants have invaded and taken over the land. Giants of different types working to an unknown common goal for reasons equally unknown. The party, part of a resistance movement that has tried to find a way to beat these impossible odds, finds help from an unlikely source and a battle against time, evil (and giants!) ensues. It has been over a year and a half since they came. A largely peaceful world torn apart by invasion. Giants of all kinds despite their historic enmity joined in unexplained alliances catching all around them off guard. Within a few short weeks, villages were razed to the ground, towns overrun and cities were taken over with overlords and their minions keeping control. Despite most means of defence being confiscated and enslavement being the norm, small pockets of defiance remain, desperately holding onto what is left of their freedoms in the hope of one day getting the

Interview with a GM - Marco

Hi as one of the four GMs for the April Rotation in venue, I thought of a bit of a mini interview on Marco. When did you first start playing RPGs and what were they? I started way back in 1980 playing 1st Edition AD&D What was the most memorable part of those sessions? Spending lunchtimes meeting up by a copse of trees with fellow geeks. I remember being more than a little fast and loose with rules and rolls but feeling happy being allowed to be me! Why did you start GMing? My kids reached about 11 years old and expressed an interest in playing so I set up a game just for my family to play How long have you been GMing? For about 14 years (but with BIG gaps in between!) What systems have you GMed? I am a monogamous AD&D guy. I have GM’d 2nd edition and 5th edition What are the pleasures and pitfalls of GMing? Having the ability to create something that people look forward to is a great pleasure. Its hard work at times but so worth it The pitfall (other than not being able to pla

Interview with a GM - Calum

So I asked Calum for and interview as he is up for GMing one of the April Rotation Games. His response: "Sure - this is my first time GMing so there's not too much to say really..." When did you first start playing RPGs and what were they? I first started playing RPG's a few years ago, with an online game of 5e a friend was running for a group of new players. What was the most memorable part of those sessions? The most memorable part was a fight in an underground, waterlogged cave.  My character was a tabaxi, and we all know how cats don't like water!  It became a game of trying not to get in the water, leaping from rock to rock whilst trying to get close to the witch we were fighting.  It was really fun, and a great example of how creative roleplay from both players and the GM can spice up combat encounters. Why did you start GMing? This is my first time running a game, but I put myself forward because I think it will help me appreciate being a player more, and t

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.
