Planning to run RPG Sessions at SHUX

The below information is being cross posted here in addition to being posted on the SUSD community organized RPG geek list in order to get more visibility for the RPG sessions I’m planning on running SHUX weekend. I’ve picked 1pm on each afternoon but I’m not absolutely committed to that time and I’m very willing to move to a different time if that works better for people who are interested in playing but want to attend some of the planned SHUX events.

Session 1 - Friday afternoon

  • Game Title: Root RPG
  • Number of Players: 5
  • Date and Time: 1pm Friday afternoon
  • Location/Table: RPG area
  • Expected Playing Time: 3 - 4 hours
  • Experience Required: None. Everyone is welcome!
  • Suggested Age: 8+

In Root: The Table Top RPG, you all play vagabonds, denizens of the Woodland who have been cast out of “civilized” society, whether by their own volition or by exile. You venture throughout the Woodland fulfilling jobs and tipping the scales in the conflict between the factions.

This game focuses on fun adventurous action and escapades, on the meaningful, lasting
backdrop of the Woodland and its war. You’ll get into big fights and stage cunning heists, and by doing so, you’ll earn reputation with different Woodland factions, and perhaps even help them to take control over clearings.

See the the official kickstarter campaign or the Shut Up and Sit Down game news page for details on the Root RPG and its quick start preview rules.

Session 2 - Saturday afternoon

  • Game Title: Blades in the Dark - War in Crow’s Foot
  • Number of Players: 5
  • Date and Time: 1pm Saturday afternoon
  • Location/Table: RPG area
  • Expected Playing Time: 3 - 4 hours
  • Experience Required: None. Everyone is welcome!
  • Suggested Age: 13+

Roric, the ward boss who ran the criminal operations in the Crow’s Foot district, has been killed. With Roric died, the peace he had brokered between two rival gangs, the Lampblacks and the Red Sashes, has exploded into open war on the streets. Your small gang is approached by the the lamp blacks to perform a job for them that will swing the street war in their favor. The job is simple enough and the pay is good, what could go wrong?

Blades in the Dark is a tabletop role-playing game about a crew of daring scoundrels seeking their fortunes on the haunted streets of an industrial-fantasy city. There are heists, chases, occult mysteries, dangerous bargains, bloody skirmishes, and, above all, riches to be had — if you’re bold enough to seize them.

Session 3 - Sunday afternoon

  • Game Title: Fall of Delta Green - On a Bank, By Moonlight
  • Number of Players: 6
  • Date and Time: 1pm Sunday afternoon
  • Location/Table: RPG area
  • Expected Playing Time: 3 - 4 hours
  • Experience Required: None. Everyone is welcome!
  • Suggested Age: 18+

The year is 1968. Two deaths in a small town are troubling the Police. Reports contain references to chanting, graven idols and strange moonlight ceremonies. As Agents of Delta Green, a top-secret branch of the US Government, your mission is to investigate those deaths and eradicate any unnatural influences.

Born of the U.S. government’s 1928 raid on the degenerate coastal town of Innsmouth, Massachusetts, the covert agency known as Delta Green opposes the forces of darkness with honor, but without glory. Delta Green agents slip through the system, manipulating the federal bureaucracy while pushing the darkness back for another day — but often at a shattering personal cost. The Fall of Delta Green adapts Delta Green: The Role-Playing Game from Arc Dream Publishing to the GUMSHOE rules system used by Pelgrane Press games such as Night’s Black Agents and Trail of Cthulhu.

See https://www.shutupandsitdown.com/rpg-review-trail-of-cthulhu/ for Shut Up and Sit Down’s review of Trail of Cthulhu, which uses the same rule set as Fall of Delta Green.


EDIT: Due to the fact that no one has yet expressed any interest in the Schlock Mercenary RPG session neither here nor on the RPG geek list, and I’m super excited about the Root RPG kickstarter campaign, I’ve switched the Friday session to the Root RPG.

There’s now an official RPGGeek list for RPGS (I’ve added the sessions I want to run): https://rpggeek.com/geeklist/261310/shux19-community-organized-rpgs

Awesome! I’ll move these games from the board game geek list to that list.
