MORE DETAILS

This is a great first-time experience to get a taste for using the Dungeons and Dragons rule system in a game we lovingly call ORCS and DORCS. Set in our homebrewed world of anthropomorphic animals headquartered at Catalyst Cabinet of Curiosities, we like to play games in a fun-first style. We use the D&D rules and heavily re-flavored races and classes, while going lightly on the traditional lore of Dungeons and Dragons. Our immersive games also include a fun "loot the room" component that gives an escape room feel. Learn more about the lore of our world on the CATALYSTS page by clicking the link here or the one in the menu at the top of the page. 

 

This is a one-shot designed for new players (but experienced players are always welcome) and includes everything you need to play, plus a full tutorial before the game starts. For people new to D&D, we have created the characters and a stripped-down character sheet with just essential information. We use level 2 characters for beginners because we find level one just a little too limiting and boring. If you want to get a head start on learning about the characters for this game, you can find them below. Character selection will be made at the end of the tutorial before the game gets started. If you have a favorite you'd like to request, note the name and let us know on the registration form at checkout. We will do our best to give everyone what they want and we will have a roll off in the case of 2 people requesting the same character. 

We begin at 6pm with a tutorial and the game is expected to go to 9:30 but can go overtime (so we have added an extra 30mins on the calendar just in case). This is an ages 21+ event with drinks and light snacks provided. All you need to bring is yourself! We provide dice, trays, minis, character sheets, snacks and drinks. Experienced players are welcome to bring their own dice and trays if preferred.

A note on safety tools

Role playing games can present challenging topics or situations. This is an adult only game and we expect adult themes and situations to come up during play, though we never allow sexual assault by characters or NPCs (or by any players in the room). Please let us know if you have any subject sensitivities during checkout. We have never had any harmful situations and don't anticipate having any for this game, but we want everyone to feel safe and comfortable, creating a more joyful experience for everyone! In the unlikely event that you feel uncomfortable with a situation in the game, we will also implement the "X card" safety tool at the table. Flash it anytime and the story will fade to black with no questions. After the game, you can share with Jessica or the game master any specifics that could help us prevent the situation in the future, and in any format that you are comfortable sharing (in person, email, etc.). 

 

(Please note: a reservation is required for each player as we only have room for 6 players and 6 characters prepared. If you would like to add a player to your reservation, please contact us to make sure there is room)
