Role-Playing Game

We are hosting a one-shot RPG, utilizing Dungeons and Dragons 5E in its own Zoom parallel to the gaming stream.

The game will be run by Jesse Harasta, a longtime GM and world-creator.

The premise of the game is:

In the caravan city of Ghoudaia, the Emir’s heir has vanished – again – and discreet help is needed to bring the lad back. However, all rumors point to him joining a caravan preparing for the risky crossing of the Tarvan Wastes, dominion of the feared Sphinx. Can rescuers reach him before the Sphinx’s minions do?

Jesse will host a pre-game session to help acclimate anyone who is unfamiliar with the rules, starting at 12:30pm. The game itself will run from 1:00-4:00pm.

We have filled all the seats for the RPG and cannot take any more players.
