Here's the almost obligatory tabletop RPG thread. Given that Epic.24 is a week after UK Games Expo I'll have a ton of games I can run. Fantasy, Weird West, World War 2 Commandos and I've also got the itch to run some post apocalyptic sci fi. There will be other folk running games as well I'm sure. All welcome including folk completely new to D&D and tabletop roleplaying, we're usually playing in the board game area.
Here’s the run down of d20 @ epic23! Shop Opening Hours We decided that as most of you guys are basically nocturnal at LAN we figured we’d try opening the shop late in the evening.

Competitions On Saturday at 11am we will be hosting a Smash Up tournament! Join us for a chance to win a £10 gift voucher, useable in the shop or for when you come and visit our Board Game Café in Watford. Of course we will have our usual raffle with lots of board game and geeky prizes up for grabs. Games Last but not least we will of course be bringing a few of our games along that we will leave in the board game area for you to play with. Let us know if there is anything you want us to bring and we’ll see what we can do! See you all at LAN <3
1-3rd June 2018 Birmingham NEC I'll be there all weekend running RPGs as usual, I'm ruining five games but will always try and make time for beer, coffee, hugs etc with epic people RPG games are listed here http://www.ukgamesexpo.co.uk/bookevents.php?category=rpg
I'm going to be staffing epic 23 so I'll be spending less time in the board games area this event, that said I am hoping to run a Tabletop RPG session on the central stream and I'll be looking for victims players who want to take part. I'll be running my favourite system, Dungeon Crawl Classics which is a modern D&D like game with some new funky rules. I'm running great little adventure called The 13th Skull (which @gunmens may remember from last years UK Games Expo) "Thirteen generations ago, the ambitious first Duke of Magnussen made a fell pact with an unknown power, who asked for but one thing in return: the thirteenth daughter born to a Magnussen duke. Now, generations hence, the daughter of Duke Magnussen XIII is stolen away by a hooded executioner riding a leathery beast. As it wings back across the city walls to drop behind the Duke’s mountain-top keep, all who watch know it alights in the Magnussen family crypts, where the devilish secrets of thirteen generations have been buried and forgotten – until now…" Here's last summer's broadcast to give you an idea of how the stream games work: https://www.twitch.tv/videos/152680422 No previous RPG experience is required, I'm happy to teach the game as we go but I AM looking for players who are reasonably confident and happy to take part in a session on stream. Times are to be confirmed, but I think we're looking at a Friday afternoon session and we're usually limited to four players but it would be good to have a standby or two given that schedules change with tournaments etc. Let me know if you're interested below!
Hey all! We are very excited to be coming back to our favourite LAN! Saturday at 16:00 we will be running a 7 wonders duel fun tournament for a chance to win £10 store credit. All skill levels welcome and we are happy to teach you the game. It’s free to sign up but all we ask is that you do so before Thursday 12th Oct to make sure we have enough copies of the game. Along with an array of board games we will be bringing along Star Wars Destiny. The new CCG has boomed in popularity in the last few months so we will be bringing decks along for anyone interested in trying it out. No doubt Werewolves will also be happening in the social room around midnight so we will be hanging around to join in, as well as having a few other social deduction and party games to hand in case the numbers dwindle in the earlier hours of the morning! Lastly we shall be having a good old fashioned raffle with some goodies up for grabs. Our shop opening times are below: Thursday 14:00 – 18:00 Friday 12:00 – 18:00 Saturday 12:00 – 18:00 Sunday 12:00 – 15:30 We will also be bringing our travelling library with us and these will be available outside of the shop opening hours. Let us know if there are games you would like us to bring along and we’ll try to do so. Also if there is anything you’d be keen to see in the shop, just ask. See you soon you beautiful nerds!
I'll be running RPGs at the UK Games Expo again this year. I usually bump into some epic folk there so if anyone wants to meet for a pint (or better still, sit down and play a game!) give me a shout here. The RPG games are now live on the booking system so if you do want to book a place at my table check them out: http://www.ukgamesexpo.co.uk/bookevents.php?category=rpg
I'm know it's a bit early to be planning stuff for the LAN but it's a quiet here so I'm plotting stuff... I usually run a Dungeons & Dragons game at epic using an old school ruleset (Labyrinth Lord or Dungeon Crawl Classics RPG) I try to make it a simple, fun and accessible game. I got a bit carried away at the last LAN and tried to run for 10 players and whilst it wasn't a total disaster it wasn't as much fun as it should have been, so I'm going cap numbers this time but I'll try to run two different games if there is enough interest: The first game will be another Dungeon Crawl Classics RPG funnel adventure. Similar to D&D but each player starts with several 'level zero' characters who are peasants and farmers rather than heroic fighters, wizards and rogues. Chaos, carnage, misfiring spells and much character death usually ensues. I also want to run 'White Star' which is a Sci Fi system, also based on old school D&D (which makes it easy to learn) White Star doesn't have a specific setting but I'm working on an adventure idea set 'A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away' This will be a bit of a play test and if it works out ok I may run it at the UK Games Expo in May. As usual I'll set dates and times when we're all at the LAN to try and fit around tournament and shift commitments but feel free to ask questions and get involved, all welcome!
