Join DCC RPG Pittsburgh for two different Adventures! James August Walls will be running "Escape the Purple Planet" by Harley Stroh. Michael Bolam will be running "Masks of Lankhmar" by Michael Curtis.

Escape from the Purple Planet:
Every 10 years the dying sun sinks into eclipse. Every 10 years the tribes cease their warring, gather at the Gladiator Stones of Ul'tok, and cast offerings into the pits, praying that their masters find their sacrifices worthy. This year, you are that sacrifice. In order to win free, you must best all challengers, or try your luck in the pits beneath the arena. However you escape – whether by blade or by cunning – you must find your way free before the wierdling sun rises once more, and the hordes of kith return to their forever war!

Masks of Lankhmar:
A heist gone wrong brings an unlikely group of thieves together and sets off a search for forgotten treasures hidden in the City of the Black Toga! Can our heroes of questionable moral character survive the twisting chase that leads through the Plaza of Dark Delights, crosses paths with Sheelba of the Eyeless Face, and delves into one of the oddest tenements in Lankhmar? Not if the Thieves’ Guild has their way!

No experience with DCC RPG or role playing games expected or required to play. We'll provide characters, instruction, and extra dice. You just need to show up. We're going to have two judges for the event, so we should be able to handle 14-16 players.

Trophies for the Pittsburgh tournament!! By +dave eightc​. 

Post has attachment
DCC RPG Pittsburgh is coordinating our second annual funnel tournament for Free RPG Day at Phantom of the Attic Games, in the Oakland neighborhood).

A band of villagers are trapped in a mist-shrouded carnival in the dead of night, facing death at every turn. Can they survive twisted oddities like the corpse-filled Tunnel of Love and the dreaded Bone Coaster?

And there's clowns. Lots and lots of clowns.

No experience necessary to play and drop-ins are welcome throughout the session. Play your characters until s/he dies, then the next player tags in. Winners will be determined by the most survived encounters, with trophies going to the top three!

The tournament will run from 12:00 PM (noon) until 4:45 PM. The trophies will be awarded at 5:00 PM.

The tournament is part of Phantom Games Free RPG Day Events -

Anyone have any experience running +Daniel Bishop's "The Black Feather Blade" from last year's GenCon program? I skimmed it the other day, then volunteered to run it for a Road Crew Event.  I'm not really sure how to involve the NPC parties, particularly given the "one shot" nature of the event. Anyone have any suggestions? Of course, I can start the party off with any sort of motivations, but I'm trying to get them as much mileage as I can out of the NPCs.

I just created a Facebook group to promote Goodman Games World Tour events in Pittsburgh and South Western PA -

Feel free to join or pass it on to others in the area. Not much listed yet, but I'll be running open table/one-shot games about once a month at Phantom of the Attic Games in Pittsburgh starting in March.

I'll be sure to post the information about the events here, too.
