If day 1 is dedicated to board games, day 2 is for tabletop RPGs. It will feature CCCs, or Community Created Content, being run by people from the Greasy Snitches, and Gamers & GMS. Find out what RPGs are about, and have fun in games spanning different genres like the standard fantasy games like D&D, scifi with LANCER RPG, or maybe you just want to play as a sentient house plant in Planted.

throughout the convention, there will be open tables for playing other games that weren’t listed here. With all that you have knowledge on all the happenings next weekend June 1, 2019.
