Description
Each week we run games at a community or related facility, usually open to the general public. Or we show up with the RPG Bus & RPG Trailer at a pre-announced location, such as a park, parking lot, etc. There people can drop in and join either a 1-shot RPG session, or continuing campaigns. This is also where we begin transitioning our GM trainees "into the wild". Giving them ongoing guidance and supervision, but with players other than our fellow volunteers.
 
Game systems include (but not necessary limited to):
  • Wizards of the Coast D&D 5e (fantasy genre)
  • Cubicle 7 / D&D5e Adventures in Middle-earth (fantasy genre)
  • Cubicle 7 The One Ring RPG  (fantasy genre)
  • Hobbit Tales, from the Green Dragon Inn (cooperative story telling card game as ice breaker to RPG sessions)
  • Monte Cooke Games No Thank You Evil (children's imagination mixed genres)
  • FFG Star Wars RPG (science fiction genre)
  • Palladium Heroes Unlimited (super heroes genre)
  • Chaosium Call of Cthulhu (horror genre)
  • Cubicle 7 Doctor Who RPG (police procedural or science fiction genres)
  • Steve Jackson Games GURPS Cops (police procedural genre)
  • Kenzer & Company Aces & Eights (wild west genre) (evaluating as non-mystic Old West RPG versus GURPS Old West, Original Boot Hill and d20 3.x Boot Hill)

 

We may also be running others activities and game systems/settings, some recent examples include:
  • Drum circles
  • Live-action role-playing (LARP), both non-boffer and boffer types.
  • Gumshoe system, Trail of Cthulhu (horror)
  • Top Secret, New World Order (espionage)
  • Paranoia (new) (darkly humorous sci-fi genre)
  • Hero Kids (Kids on Bikes 80s style)
  • Mutant Year Zero (dystopian / post apocalyptic)
  • The Expanse RPG
  • Cypher System RPG (Monte Cook Games)
 
These are not (usually) streamed. Some sessions are privately recorded for internal research & evaluation, but rarely shared with public, if we do stream or record, w then upload the recordings to our Patreon supporters first (as a thank you for their support), and then about a month later to the general public on our Youtube channel.
