We are proud to support independent role-playing game artists and companies the world over. What’s an Indie Company? Basically, they’re a small press publisher – maybe just a few people with a dream, or as few as one person! We trawl through the conventions and internet to bring you what our staff and players consider shining examples of the format – even better, this event is sponsored by various publishers who send free goodies to players who participate in the event, buy books, and more!
Each player gets seating, some of the swag provided by publishers, printing, any accessories necessary to play, and the chance to learn 4 new independent role-playing games! We will play 1-2 different games each week, running either as one-shots or as a small campaign arc (as appropriate to each game), so everyone should get a chance to play every game. Copies of the books are available for purchase at the store.
The next season begins November 7 at 6 pm and runs for 12 weeks, each week on Tuesday.
Many of these games have Game Masters already lined up, but we are always looking for backup. If you’d like to GM one of these games, buy the ticket that says “I will Backup GM” and we’ll add you to our GM list.

It’s about feuds, championships, betrayal, and righteous victory. It’s about the clash of good and evil on the grandest stage. It’s about whether you’ve got what it takes. And, in the end, it’s about what the audience thinks of your efforts.
