Tabletop Role Playing Games

Following the success of the Dungeons and Dragons game last year NordicFuzzCon are expanding the role playing game track to include several game systems and settings.

Whether you are a seasoned roleplayer or are just interested to try out tabletop role playing games there is something for you. The Gaming team and helpers will be running a number of sessions over the period of the convention suitable for anyone, from dungeon delving to star wars space adventure!

Panels

There will be a couple of panels for those interested in role play games to meet up and discuss them.

Role Play Game Meet and Greet

A chance for anyone who is interested in tabletop RPGs to meet other players, discuss their favourite types of games or just learn what the hobby is all about. This will be a general roundtable and folks are welcome to speak about the games they love or bring along examples.

There will also be discussion of the games we are offering at the convention and a last chance to sign up for games which still have spaces.

Game Master Roundtable

Whether you are an experienced dungeon master or a novice Keeper of Call of Cthulhu, this event is for GMs to swap ideas on how to handle troublesome players, or discuss their favourite styles of play. It is open to anyone who wants to run games or wants to share their knowledge. The session will include advice from fellow GMs but also a chance to express your own ideas on what makes a good style of gaming.

No matter the circumstances our heroes needed some sort of relief, they can see a light shimmering in one of the smaller buildings, and they can hear the sound of animals coming through the wind slightly drowned out by the flow of a flowing river beyond.
