And remember, these tickets are FREE! So come hang out and be social!

Games With Open Seats

Looking for a last-minute game to play? You’re in luck! Here are some events that you can still squeeze into and play today!

12:00 noon EST – Event 1 – The Black Feather Blade (DCC RPG)

Over a century ago, Bran Corvidu ravaged the Northern Kingdoms. Known as the Feast-Lord of Crows for the bodies left in his wake, and the Carrion-Eater for his unsavory devotion to the Crow God Malotoch, Corvidu bore the Black Feather Blade, a magical sword buried with him upon his death. Many have sought Corvidu’s tomb, but none have found it, for it was long hidden by the Scions of Law.

3:00 pm EST – Event 59 – Welcome to Eastwood (MCC RPG)

An odd town suddenly appears near your village. You are among the brave (and foolish) sent to treat with the new arrivals. How did they build this town so fast? And why does it shimmer so? This sandbox style MCC (or DCC) adventure is being run as a mini tournament.

3:00 pm EST – Event 189 – Xcrawl: Louisiana Rising charity event (XCC RPG)

In August 2016 a huge rainstorm brought massive flooding to the Duchy. Xcrawl athletes and fans wanted to help so Duke Edward Bell of Baton Rouge authorized a charity Xcrawl event to help fund relief efforts.

6:00 pm EST – Event 218 – The Tower Out of Time (DCC RPG)

A bearded star has recently been sighted in the night sky. Seen by the locals as an ill omen, the sudden appearance of a lake and odd squatting tower in the woods nearby has the locals in an uproar. Woodcutters who fled the location say that the burning pillar of light that can be seen from miles away emanates from this strange fleshy structure. The terrified townsfolk have convinced you to investigate and get to the bottom of the tower’s abrupt appearance.

6:00 pm EST – Event 100 – Trouble at Big Ed’s Oasis (DCC RPG)

Strange amphibian creatures have been appearing nightly at Big Ed’s Oasis, a small farming outpost about a day’s travel away from what anyone would call “civilization.” It was a funny oddity at first, but something has the residents worried: the creatures are getting bigger. Can the party discover the source of these slimy intruders while protecting the town from the growing (literally) threat of nightly attacks?
