Roleplaying

We are bringing exciting content back to the social games area in partnership with Games Quest, GM Moley and The Shropshire Dungeon Master

We will be putting on scheduled daily events each afternoon for groups of up to 5 players. Each session will last 2 hours, see below for timeslots for different games.

We're pleased to offer 3 separate games, Dungeons and Dragons 5E, Star Wars: Age of Rebellion and Cyberpunk 2020.

When players arrive at the sessions they will find characters ready to roll, each set up with powers and equipment appropriate for the adventure.

Whilst we have a timetable for the three different games, if you and your friends book all 5 seats in a session GM Moley has kindly agreed to run whichever game you like for that session.

Dungeons and Dragons - 5th Edition


Whether you wield hardened steel, or sling powerful magic spells, call on the power of nature, or the gods themselves, come take on the role of a mighty hero in this quintessential pen-and- paper fantasy role playing game. Now in its 5th edition new mechanics have been added to simplify and streamline game play, making this the perfect system in which to introduce new players - while many features have been retained from older systems to satisfy all previous generations of gamers. Players who sign up will be able to play one of the following scenarios: In this 2 hour session, adventures will investigate the Spectre Tower and its ghostly owner who can supposedly grant wishes.

In this 2 hour session, players will take the role of Redcloaks, elite guardians of the City of Towers, as the city faces a crisis.

In this 2 hour session, adventurers will be called to a small village to hunt down a legendary creature that haunts the nearby forest.

In this 2 hour session, adventurers will be hired to attend the hanging of an unknown man, each will have their own motives for being there.

Call of Cthulhu - 5th Edition

Chaosium’s Lovecraftian adventure system allows you to play anyone from regular Joes to elite agents, but all must face horrors beyond comprehension born from the works of H.P Lovecraft and his contemporaries in cosmic horror. Decades with only minor rules changes, and supporting a wide array of genre-blends, Call of Cthulhu remains the most popular Lovecraftian role playing game. In this 2 hour session, normal people working their normal jobs will find the familiar faces around them suddenly become strange.

Pokethulhu

The free to download parody RPG combining the collectable monsters and the eldritch horrors is simple to pick up and play. Created by Cumberland Games, with art from Dork Tower’s own John Kovalic to depict the adorable, slimy, extra-dimensional nightmares beloved by young children with a taste for danger. In this 2 hour session, young cultists take a holiday to their Uncle Delapore’s house, only to find that they are not welcome.

Sentinels of the Multiverse

Drawn from the adventures of the card game, Sentinels allows you to play as heroes from a fictional – but strangely familiar - comic book universe, in which super-heroes battle super villains for moral supremacy. Still in its infancy, the RPG is still only available as a starter set, including six characters, and a short campaign with a branching narrative. In this 2 hour session, heroes will sample the life of a superhero, defending the city’s power grid from an army of robotic spiders.

Archenemy

Gideon Jura, Chandra Nalaar and Nissa Revane are planeswalkers, a select few who have the ability to travel across the many planes of the multiverse. Although each is a powerful being, alone they are no match for the great and ancient forces that threaten the existence of all these world. Threats such as Nicol Bolas: one of the most powerful planeswalkers of the Multiverse and at 25,000 years old, possibly the oldest being alive.

So together, Gideon, Chandra and Nissa form the Gatewatch, sworn to protect the people of the multiverse and strong enough to take on any force that threatens it.

In this 3 vs 1 format, you take on the role of one of these heroes - represented by a pre-constructed 60-card deck ready to play at the table. All you need to do is round up the Gatewatch and bring 2 other players with you to battle it out against our nefarious champion who plots to take over the worlds as you know them.

Think you’re up to the challenge? Sign up today to find out. The fastest team will win the Archenemy box, containing: the four 60-card decks required to play, four planeswalker cards with new art, and a 20-card scheme deck containing 20 all-new, unique schemes. Playable right out of the box!
