Helpful tips:
  • If you plan on GMing a game be sure to have pre-generated characters on hand for the players, so you don't take up that time generating the characters during your session. If there are special requirements for your game please let us know as well, and we'll post that along with the game summary.
  • Be aware that we can have more games than there are sessions, since we have tables in the atrium for games as well as the ability to set up tables in 105. So don't fret too much if you do see that the session you wanted is already taken.

The newly-crowned kings of Al'Turin Negrit require the aid of the brave adventurers once again to cleanse their kingdom of the creeping shadows, and are willing to pay dearly for their assistance.
