Role Play Games Tounament

DSC00698A perennial favourite at Mind Sports meetings is the regular RPG game. We have run Dungeons & Dragons, and Space Trucker games at the club over the years. RPGs allow the players’ imaginations to run wild. It allows players to tell stories collaboratively and to explore alternate universes and personae.

The club will be running a tournament for teams of 3 players. Each team will play the same dungeon and their performance will be compared.

Do you have what it takes to be crowned the top RPG team at St John’s?


  • The RPG will be set in 1920s London. The game follows a set of rules unknown to the players.
  • Each team will be given a copy of the introductory setting at the start of the tournament.
  • Each week a different team will attempt the same adventure.
  • Teams are sworn to secrecy.
  • Teams consist of three players.
  • Each team must allocate a set number of points for character characteristics in any way they see fit.
  • Each team may purchase items to a set value.
  • The winning team will be the team with the most Experience points at the end of two hours adventuring.
  • The Games Master’s decisions are final.
