Role-Playing Game Fest
Downtown Library: 1st Floor Lobby
Try out a tabletop RPG like the latest edition of Dungeons & Dragons or something you have never heard of before. Fly missions as a WWII female Soviet pilot. Confront the void in a lost rocketship adrift in space. Build a language and community and see how it evolves. Sessions last an hour each so you can try out lots of different games. You can also take a break from gaming and paint a free miniature at our drop-in paint-and-take. Beginners are welcome.
