Okay, I realize that this is BGG.Con and not RPGG.Con, but I know that a lot of people play both board games and RPGs, and I was wondering if there was enough interest in playing some RPGs. Obviously, I don't want to do this all weekend, but I wouldn't mind running a game and playing in one or two.

So, add something to this list if you are willing to GM a game of it. If you GM, you are offering to bring all the materials necessary to play (though it's reasonable to have the players bring writing utensils and dice), including pre-generated characters (if necessary) and an adventure prepped and ready to go (again, if necessary).

If you're willing to GM something already on the list, add a comment to that item.

If you'd like to play, then give a thumb to the RPG. After we get a gauge of interest, we can nail down specifically who is running what, when, and handle sign-ups.

If there's a specific game you want to play (but not GM) and no GM has stepped forward, just add a comment to the bottom of the GeekList.

I have no idea what the response to this will be, so I don't think it's necessary just yet to have a player count in mind or a specific adventure that you're planning to run.

It's perfectly reasonable for a GM to list several games that s/he is able to run, but only actually run one or two.

UPDATE

There wasn't overwhelming interest, but enough to have a few things going on. There is a D&D game and a Call of Cthulhu game, both of which are currently full. Also, we have plenty of room in Fiasco.

Call of Cthulhu: Given that Sandman is unloved, and Monsters and Other Childish Things has only one interested, I can offer Call of Cthulhu.

This is my favorite game ever, and I've run various iterations and campaigns for a good dozen years.

I have a GREAT brain-melting one-shot in mind that supports up to 6 players with pregens. When I ran it last, a jaw nearly literally hit the floor as a player was trying to walk when he suddenly understood the entire depth of the problem.

But I could run happily with as little as 4. And newbies are more than welcome. Call of Cthulhu doesn't require rules explanations. A minute or two with your character sheet and you just get it.

Game set for Thursday 7-11PM whereever we can
I will be in the dex game area probably at theFrankenstein Croke table wearing an I'm evil t shirt.
Players:
1. weizur
2. Carmilla
3. georgeofjungle3
4. agentzen
5. aereas
6. nyriv
Robert bidder. Alternate.
Last bit: Character balance is 4 males + 2 females. That means one of your guys is gonna need to go across gender.

This is a no-prep GM-less system for 3-5 players, but I can make sure to bring all the materials. We can decide on a playset later.

SCHEDULED!

We'll meet outside the Sunnyside Room at 1pm on Saturday. Currently, we can support 10-20 players. This is not a space-intensive game, so we can easily find a place to play.

This is my favorite one-shot game of all time. Designed as a my first RPG. It kind of almost dismisses rules, character sheets, and has a unique setting. And is designed for 3 players, but can expand to 6 in a pinch.

The setting in dreamlike craziness. And ideal for people that either don't want to muck about with rules, or want an easy starter RPG.

8. RPG: Unpublished Prototypes [Average Rating:9.50 Unranked]

I'm bringing materials to play my collaborative (GM-less) game, Death of the Vele, which is in play test now. I can play any time Wed, Thu, before lunch Fri, or 7pm and after on Sat. Two hours was enough to get a feel for the game when I demoed at Gencon.

Death of the Vele is a collaborative role playing game that tries to feel like a traditional RPG, even though there's no single GM or prep outside of play. It traces its ancestry to Blood Red Sands (Universalis), FATE, and Lady Blackbird (The Shadow of Yesterday).

Here's a link: Death of the Vele.

Please send me geekmail or comment if you're interested. I'm also interested in meeting up with other RPG enthusiasts (indie and traditional).
