Rookie One Shots

Rookie One Shots

So  you  want  to  try  running  a  game?  Want  it  to  be  somewhere  you'll  have  support?  Don't  want  to  spend  a  fortune  on  miniatures,  books  and  dice  for  your  first  game?  Why  not  sign  up  to  run  one  of  our  Rookie  One  Shots?  Rookie  One  Shots  are  a  single  gaming  session  lasting  4  hours  and  offer  new  GMs  a  chance  to  get  some  experience  and  confidence.   

Alternately if you're a great player with a kind heart, endless patience and a desire to support new GMs running their first games, why not sign up to play in one of our upcoming Rookie One Shots?

Rookie  One  Shots  are  a  single  gaming  session  lasting  4  hours  and  offer  new  GMs  a  chance  to  get  some  experience  and  confidence. To  run  a  Rookie  session  we'll  offer  you  help  and  advice  and  you'll  have  access  to  our  library  of  books  and  other  supplies  but  you'll  need  to  be  prepared. You'll  need to provide  4  pre-generated  characters  for  your  game,  a  short  overview  of  your  story  with  key  moments  and  a  synopsis  we  can  share  with  potential  players. We'll review this and provide notes and suggestions to help the game run smoother and to ensure you have everything you need for a great game.

Tables  will  be  limited  to  4  players  to  keep  you  from  getting  overwhelmed  and  we'll  have  experienced  players  and  GMs  on  hand  to  help  you  if  you  run  into  any  problems.  These  games  will  run  from  6.30pm  to  10.30pm.
