We have tons of games and you can always bring yours.

Games, drinks, and everything you need to spend some hours playing boardgames

Call of Cthulhu: Escape from Innsmouth

====================================
Escape from Innsmouth
====================================

Innsmouth was once a prosperous trading town located on the north coast of Massachusetts. Early in the 19th century her great sailing ships traveled the world in search of trade and treasure. A series of mishaps brought the town to the brink of financial ruin, but it was saved when Captain Obed Marsh discovered a secret source of gold among the islands of the South Pacific. Some whisper that old Obed Marsh made a pact with the devil. The truth is much more sinister.

The first part of a campaign of the same name released in 1992 for the Call of Cthulhu tabletop RPG takes a group of investigators answering a call for help to the infamous fishing town. Unwelcoming townsfolk and horrible secrets await them, will they be able to leave unscathed?

Shadow over Innsmouth has always been my favorite story by H. P. Lovecraft and when I found a pdf for this campaign some years ago I loved how the authors had fleshed out the whole town. If, like me, you have played the videogame Call of Cthulhu: Dark Corners of the Earth you will know how the main story of this adventure develops. However, there are lots of characters and locations that the videogame left out and, in order to make this experience fresh I intend to give bigger roles to some characters not seen in the videogame.

====================================
Me as a Keeper
====================================

Since this would be my first time ever running an RPG game as Keeper/DM/GM I’d rather just play the first part of the campaign, the one that gives it its name and leave the second part, the Raid on Innsmouth, for a later time. Mostly because this way we could complete it in just 2 or 3 sessions.

Getting the investigators to go to Innsmouth requires some inventive on my part since I’d like the characters to have a solid motivation or interest to go there. Therefore, I’m going to ask you to prepare a character beforehand. Not necessarily their stats but their occupation at least. This is just so I can work on a way to make them interested in going to the town.

The main occupations I have in mind right now are (but feel free to suggest any other):
+ Private Investigator
+ Police Officer (preferably retired)
+ Journalist
+ Drifter (or someone looking for a job)
+ University Professor or similar

We can talk about this using the Meetup’s comments or private messaging (so be sure to have that enabled!) or through good ol’ email.

====================================
When and Where?
====================================

**Still to be decided!**

I would prefer to play on Friday or Saturday evening but the biggest problem is that I can’t offer a place to play!

Jenna’s farewell / Netrunner

Horror Summer: Hereditary

Dear geeks, do you like horror? Are you having problems dealing with the heat by night? Come watch ‘Hereditary’ with us and spend a chilly time!
‘Hereditary’ follows the story of a seemingly normal family: dad, mum, teenage son and little daughter. After the reclusive grandmother dies, things start getting increasingly weird, especially for the mother, because some secrets run deep in some families. Check out the disturbing trailer here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YHxcDbai7aU
This movie has received great reviews (with an 87/100 on Metacritic), many comparing its brand of horror with that of classics like ‘The Exorcist’ or ‘Rosemary’s Baby’, so don’t expect cheap scares.
The movie starts at 22:20, so let’s meet at the doors of the cinema and get the tickets together.

Cthulhu Old West: The Iron Trail

Lovecraft country, they say, is way back in the East. Out here in the West, it’s just dust and grit and death. Ain’t noone needs a monster to kill them here. The sun will do that just fine. And, failin’ that, we got all sorts of shooters, hucksters and strange folk just waitin’ for ya. Nah, you wanna shit your pants ‘fore ya die, ya stay East. Out here, ya stare it right in the face. An’ then ya die.

The Cthulhu: Down Darker Trails Role-Playing Game is the chronicle of what happened before the Investigators ever investigated The Haunting, before the got their tickets to the Orient Express and looked behind the Masks of Nyarlathotep. It is the stories of That Which Should Not Be in the 1870’s North America.
It is a time of connections, when the great transcontinental railways were built and the Gang of Four ruled the tracks. It is a time of risk, when your horse going lame would mean you wouldn’t reach the next water hole. And it is the time of six-shooters and harsh judgments when sheriffs lived more by their word than the letters of the law.
Your character is one of Pinkerton’s Investigators, hired to go into the wilderness and seek out what holds up the Union Pacific Rail Road. And we ain’t talking cowboys here.

You up for the job, pardner?

This adventure will be the first of three, run once a month at my place in Guindalera.

Star Wars Role-Playing Game: Force and Destiny

Have you ever dreamt of becoming a Jedi knight? Have you always felt there is something special inside you, some… force that will eventually take you away to other worlds? Have you ever wanted to follow in the footsteps of Luke Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Ahsoka Tano? Or rather Darth Vader, Kylo Ren and Asajj Ventress? Well, this is your chance to test your real Jedi mettle!
After the fall of the Galactic Republic, Emperor Palpatine has drawn a blanket of terror and iron-fisted control over the majority of the galaxy. In an effort to quell any powerful opposition, his Imperial Inquisitors smother all traces of the remaining Jedi knights and Force-sensitive creatures as soon as they are detected. But this galaxy is too vast even for Palpatine’s reach; this is where you come in.
We are recruiting reliable players for our RPG, daring padawans with some free Sunday afternoons/evenings a month on their hands. We’ll be meeting in July (the date published here being orientative) for character creation and to discuss what kind of game we’d like.
You’ve never played a role-playing game before but you love Star Wars? Don’t worry, the only requirement is that you enjoy using your imagination with like-minded geeks to tell an exciting and fun story.
So join our game and fulfil your destiny among the stars!
