Current Roleplaying Games being played

Rotation: 5th April to 26th July


System Troika!

Game Master Liam

Venue: Glanville Hall Wednesday night

Players: Dan, David H, Jerrie and  Mark C

Troika! in Discworld meets Charles Stross's Laundry via Time Bandits 

It's certainly alot more Pratchett than the Gurps rule set of the official rpg setting 

Discworld comes from the genius of the English author Terry Pratchett, a flat planet balanced on the backs of four elephants which in turn stand on the back of a giant turtle.  Discworld frequently parody or take inspiration from classic works, usually fantasy or science fiction, as well as mythology, folklore and fairy tales, and often use them for satirical parallels with cultural, political and scientific issues.

City of Nuln 

System Warhammer

Game Master Chris

Venue: Glanville Hall Wednesday night

Players: Ahmar A (Em), Freddie M, Joshua G and Will L

Travelling to the City of Nuln a group of adventures form, their desire to make connections, get employment and more importantly, earn some Crowns being all too enticing. Finding a job in the city of opportunity isn't too hard, but the deep swill of the city's heart is as dark and rotten as the dangers it contains. How will you face these dangers and flourish with your lives, body and mind intact? 

WFRP 4e uses a D100 system with bonuses for targets, D10s are recommended. The system itself is mid/high-fantasy and far more brutal than D&D. Prepare to lose stats, fingers, limbs, sanity and characters on your adventure. It would be recommended to have a basic understanding of the lore at a high level, there are plenty of resources around for free that can be read in a few minutes 

Dungeon Crawl Classics

System: Dungeon Crawl Classics 

Game Master Graham

Venue: Glanville Hall Wednesday night

Players:  Andy D, James W,, Jo F and Neil

Dungeon Crawl Classics is very much it’s own take on adventuring. Utilising a standard D20 system and borrowing from the early D&D ruleset, it forges its own path and rewards player creativity to overcome challenging odds. 

Character creation is done in a very unique way through the use of a ‘funnel’ dungeon. Each player receives 4 randomly generated villagers who find themselves caught up in local trouble. They are untrained, and range from street beggar to noble to gong farmer. Many will not survive their first adventure, but those who do will find themselves battle forged and acquiring new skills. 

The campaign will be free-flowing from one adventure to the next, although these are not set in stone, and will be chosen to suit the direction things are heading in or the adventuring party we find ourselves with. These range from otherworldly expeditions into the realms of law and chaos, hub town adventures with mysteries to solve, and deep deep dungeons where resource management and mapping will be key. 

There will be player death, but not unfairly so. The system challenges players rather than characters to come up with creative solutions, and gaining an advantage and the upper hand in battle is essential if victory is to be assured. If death does occur then a player will not be out of the action for long, there can always be a cell with a prisoner to be freed around every corner! 

So, Ye who be not afraid, raise up thine pitch fork, or bee keeping staff, or crutches. Your town has been terrorised for far too long… it is time for action! 

d&d 5e

Expedition to Kings Cove

System: D&D 5e

Game Master Andrew W

Venue: Glanville Hall Wednesday night

Players: Helen H, Marco, Richard T and Simon H

5e D&D game for characters starting at level 1. 

The notice read “artisans with adventuring experience needed” to travel to new lands, help rebuild a town and explore perilous places.

Upon further enquiry it turns out that a merchant company called the Onyx Enclave have a trade route between the mainland and various settlements on the Kings Cove, a little-known stretch of coastline a very long way away.

Concern has been raised about Larzetown which is one of the settlements. The Onyx Enclave are hiring skilled people like you to travel there and under the instruction of Admiral Pustulus Lork: 

Should the mission be completed and your alive at the end of it then you will be transported back to the mainland. It couldn’t be simpler. 

You set sail on “The Singing Siren” for a four-week voyage to Larzetown. Our story begins as Larzetown comes into view and you wonder not for the first time what you have let yourself in for. 

Expedition to Kings Cove is a 5e D&D game that I would like to run for one rotation from April. Players will create 1st level characters with bespoke artisan backgrounds. The game will be a mixture of adventuring where characters will explore and gain levels in their class as well as downtime where they will contribute their skills to rebuilding Larzetown. 


System: D&D 5e

Game Master Jason

Venue: Glanville Hall Wednesday night

Players: Benjamin C, George F, Kat and  Richard C

In a forgotten corner of the reams lies Mystvale, a rugged and isolated land amidst the mountains. The people of Mystvale are tough and self-sufficient, surviving and thriving there for centureies. But now strange and terrifying new threats are stalking their homeland, far beyond anything they have faced before, and threatening to destroy their way of life.

Their call for help has been heard.

Join the reconnaissance party, travel to Mystvale and assess the situation. This is your opportunity to gain experience, develop your talents and doo good in this world. A wide range of skills will be needed to handle the terrain, gain the trust of the locals, and understand the dangers.

Interested? Contact Father Abraham at the Hobbit;s Hole Inn wihtout delay!

Game Master Mark C

Venue: Glanville Hall Wednesday night

"Dude! My Alchemical Romance bailed on the battle of the bands, which means we're in! Or, we will be once we change our name... Apparently "DICKPUKE" isn't allowed or something..."

Congratulations, your band has been accepted to be a part of the 34th annual Sclipbert B. Bardangle School of Music Battle of the Bands!

Unscripted Adventures

System: D&D 5e

Game Master James

Venue: Glanville Hall Wednesday night

Campaign Tone

This is really a “default”, because you can and will overturn or modify it with the decisions you make in Sessions 1 and 2.  But, if pressed, here’s what I’d go with:

Port Blacksand

System: Advanced Fighting Fantasy

Game Master Jo F

Venue: Glanville Hall Wednesday night

Recently picked up a copy of Advanced Fighting Fantasy and selfishly have a hankering to run something that will transport the whole table to the fantastic world found within the pages of the Warlock of Firetop Mountain, the Forest of Doom and Deathtrap Dungeon. 

So, if you fancy joining me, we’ll set sail to Port Blacksand – the infamous city of thieves and travel the trade road to the city of Salamonis discovering the nightmarish world behind Steve Jackson and Ian Livingstone’s legendary game books. 

And in case you’re thinking AFF is a poor persons D&D, how very dare you! It’s not. It’s a beautifully streamlined system IMO with a lot of crunch, exciting gameplay and 40 years of pulp fantasy worldbuilding to explore. More to come.. 

d&d 5e

Ovion Circus

System: D&D 5e

Game Master Dan C

Venue: Glanville Hall Wednesday night

5e D&D game for characters starting at level 5 

Softly carrying on from Ovion office.

It will be a Circus set up in the town of Corfin. Who have gifted the many delights to the town. 

This will be a flexible run game focused on the roleplay.

Aim is to run a game that empowers players.

Props will be used aiding Roleplay relating stuff from time to time.


System: Coriolis

Game Master Andy

Venue: Glanville Hall Wednesday night

Coriolis is a Sci-fi game where you play part of a ship’s crew. 

What sort of ship depends on what sort of group you are. Are you Free Traders, Mercenaries, Explorers, Agents or Pilgrims. 

Coriolis uses the Year Zero Engine which mainly uses D6s where a 6 means a success and more sixes means a better success. If you are interested in the game you can pick up a starter set for free from the Free league web store or on DrivethruRPG


System TBC

Game Master TBC

Venue: Online  every Friday night

Fantasy Grounds is a virtual tabletop application and Roll20 is a website both tools consist of a set of tools for playing tabletop role-playing games, also referred to as a virtual tabletop, which can be used as an aid to playing in person or remotely online.

The platform's goal is to provide an authentic tabletop experience that does not try to turn the game into a video game, but instead aids the game master in providing immersive tools online.

The blank slate nature of the platform makes integrating a multitude of tabletop role-playing games possible.
