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 chance to take back their world. This is where you find yourself. A small rag-tag team of resistance looking for supplies wherever possible and hoping for just a chance to put things right. Sometimes though, those chances come from the most unlikely of sources.

NOTE: This campaign will begin with characters at 5th level so some AD&D experience will be needed to be able to play

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
