After three years, we have learned a lot about RPG.LAB and the folks that enjoy it. So, as with many actual RPGs, we are offering a “new edition” of the program.
RPG.LAB will continue to serve its purpose as an experience where GMs and experienced players can not only play the game, but ask questions about and discuss the actual rules of the game so that new, excellent games that otherwise lack supported organized play can get their day in the sun so as to potentially become new favorites for home or in-store playgroups.
Although RPG.LAB has been great in the past, after review, we’ve given the program a bit more structure with standardized session use and more scenario preparation. In addition, players will also be able to ask rules and story questions of the GM via email throughout the month. This will help maximize playtime so that we all get as much as possible out of the experience.
We will also be introducing a new registration fee of $20 (covers the cost of all four sessions for the month). This fee is to reinforce the importance of full participation throughout the month in hopes of reducing cancellations and disruptive absences. That being said, you get a bunch of stuff.
Here’s what you get:
-Four sessions. The first session will cover rules basics as well as character and party design. The three sessions after that will contain a full mini-arc campaign often written from scratch by the event’s organizer.
-Character sheets, cheat sheets, and player handouts.
-A quiet, private play area.
So please keep an eye out for our new flyers and announcements. This year’s RPG.LAB offerings are not to be missed.
