Open Day – April 18th 2015 – Call for Game Submissions

The Gamers Guild is planning to hold an Open Day on Saturday, April 18th.

As part of the Open Day, we are asking our regular members to set aside long-running campaign games for that day. This is a great opportunity to try out something different or play with a different group of players!

We are calling for anyone who would like to run a one-off game to submit a short description of the game via email (to The games should have self-contained storylines, and should have pre-made characters (or extremely rapid character building) so that anyone can join in whichever games they find interesting on the day.

We will be advertising the Open Day at various venues outside the Guild. We would like to include descriptions of the games that we will be offering in the flyers, so we would appreciate it if they could be submitted by the 14th of February.

Here are two examples of the type of blurb we are looking for:

Roleplaying in a world of Angels and Demons

They are very much like us.

Some seek to do good, others corrupt and destroy. Some set out to do one thing, but accomplish another.

Some are fiercely devoted to their work. Some doubt that they really make a difference. And some wonder, in the small hours of the night, if they picked the right side.

They have great powers, for good and evil, but they are merely pawns of greater powers still.

They are very much like us.

System: In Nomine
No experience necessary


1950. Deep in the Siberian wilderness, at the Adgorod Corrective Labor Project, the convict miners have demonstrated the superiority of the Soviet system by breaking through to a greater depth than any capitalist mine of the West. But rumour swirls around the camp, of strange happenings at the blasting face. No man knows what may lie beneath… or what might be released.

System: Dread (the diceless, numberless Horror RPG which uses a Jenga tower)
No experience necessary
3-5 players

We will also have a library of board games available for anyone who wants to use them, and the Pathfinder Society will be running a series of “Pathfinder Quests”.
