Go Play Online Sat 28 & Sunday 29 March Register now!

In place of our regular face to face meet up at Fanboy 3 this week, we are running an Online version over two days, with a social at the virtual pub the Mitchester Arms the night before.

Friday Night: Social at the Mitchester Arms.  Our regular guest GM Paul Mitchener set up a virtual pub for gamers over Google Hangouts, which ran with great success last Friday. He’s making it a regular weekly thing, and we have a table where we can meet and say hello to one another before mingling with the rest of the pub.

GPM Online March
The main event split over two days with two games on Saturday and Sunday, with more to be announced during the week.

Saturday 1-5 pm

  • Message from St Michel – Actung Cthulhu (Fate version) with Blythy.
  • The Edge of the World – Skyraiders of the Floating Realms (D100 Fantasy) with Newt

Sunday 1-5 pm

  • The Bishop’s Treasure – Wolfshead (Fate) with Paul Mitchener.
  • Nyarlathotep: His Part in My Downfall -WW2 Cthulhu using the Only War rules with Roderick.

More games to come since we’ve had at least one GM throw his hat into the ring since we got the initial line up sorted.  Also, I’ll release the full descriptions of each game, along with requirements for virtual gaming tabletop and any joining instructions from the GM as the week progresses.

For now, register your attendance. You can attend just one day or both. If demand is high, you might only get into one game.

Once you’ve registered, I’ll email you when you can choose your games, which should be either Wednesday or Thursday. I’ll then notify you when people have been allocated to the games, either Thursday or Friday night at the latest.

If you are new to online gaming, I’d recommend this guide to playing RPGs online by Dom, who is a seasoned convention GM.

 

You’ll need a headset with a microphone as well as pc with a robust internet connection.  I would recommend getting a reconditioned call centre headset with a USB connection. Not only are they cheap from eBay, but the quality is also excellent, and they are amazingly robust.

Any questions please get in touch via the contact page.
