🎲RPG ZONE🎲
Below is a run down of the bookable RPGs we have running at the All-Dayer on the 2nd of April.
If you'd like to book yourself a seat please send an email to [email protected].

Grab 🎟️tickets🎟️ to the event here = www.wegottickets.com/dungeonsandflagons

🎲 The Full-Dark Stone (Into the Odd)🎲
Up to 4 players, beginners welcome
13:00-18:00 with an hour’s break for the quiz
The area around the Wintpeaks, far into the archaic Deep Country, has been rocked by a recent earthquake, stirring up all manner of ancient relics. Word has reached your school, the College of Esoteric Academia, that magically powered automata have been spotted collecting resources around the banks of the River Eulor. You have been tasked with finding where these automata are coming from, discovering what is powering them, and claiming it for your school, before the uncultured imbeciles at the Academic College of Esotericism get their buffoonish hands on whatever it is. Venture forth from the bureaucratic safety of Bastion, the only city that matters, and stride Into The Odd!
Into the Odd is a rules light industrial fantasy TTRPG, with characters rolled in seconds that are an integrated part of the world. Seek out strange and powerful arcana; fight or flee from eldritch creatures; and deal with the most dangerous enemy of all: bureaucracy!
The Full-Dark Stone is suitable for gamers of all age and experience levels, but has some minor content warnings of mind control, shapeshifting, and insect parasites
The table will be run with the X-Card Safety Tool, and Lines and Veils can be shared before the session.
-
🎲Dungeons & Dragons🎲
Up to 6 Players
11.30am – 8pm latest (break for pub Quiz)
“The Lich-Queen’s Begotten” - an adventurer’s league module for up to 6 13th Level players. Starting in Waterdeep, our adventurer’s will travel to The Astral Plane and foil a plot that could destroy the multiverse! Lots of Gith and Spelljammer flavour for those who like their Dungeons and Dragons with high magic and sci-fi sprinkled on top. Experienced players preferred, but not essential - there will be a range of pregens available, but please feel free to bring your own official creation. I’ll run from 11:3am until 8:00pm latest, taking an hour break while the quiz is on.
-
🎲Alien RPG🎲
Up to 4 players
1pm Runs between 3/4 hrs
There’s something out there…..and it ain’t us
ALIEN RPG one shot
On the fringe forest world of LV1769, nicknamed The Damp, have been lost contact with the science outpost in the remote northern jungles. A special forces unit of 8 Colonial Marines have been sent to investigate. A long trek through the humid, sticky jungle brings them to Outpost Helio 9, where all is quiet and overgrown. What happened here? Where did all the personnel go? Strap on your boots and body armour, check your mags are locked and loaded, thermal imaging in this heat does squat so keep your eyes peeled, it may not just be the giant mosquitos and poisonous plants we find here.
A quick intro game into the horror rpg game Alien, by Free League. Open to upto 4 players, 18+. This is a horror game and will deal with themes of body horror, violence, isolation and death, we will be running with the X-card and I will be asking players for lines and veils (hopefully before-hand and in private so they can be shared anonymously with the group on the day without putting anyone on the spot) so we can make the game fun and safe for everyone. The nature of the game and the way it works, expect characters to die, there will be 8 PCs available and if yours die, you will be able to take one of the others to continue playing.

Today is #InternationalWomensDay, the ideal day to reflect upon on women’s rights, achievements, and this year’s theme of #BreakTheBias . Some ingenious women have passed through this pub over the years, in addition to the innumerable women who’ve become synonymous with our city. On the wall outside, you’ll find our Charlotte Brontë blue plaque, commemorating that the author began ‘Jane Eyre’ here. Inside, you’ll find various photographs that draw attention to pioneering women, including one of Annie Swynnerton (nee Robinson), a political activist and artist who studied at the Manchester School of Art before founding the Manchester Society for Women Painters in 1876 with fellow student and suffragette, Susan Dacre. . Head to The Union, Manchester Metropolitan University site to see what events are happening on campus today as part of #IWD2022
