Small Running Title


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.


This is a one-shot designed for experienced players (no tutorial) and includes everything you need to play. It is not required that you have ever played level 6, just that you know how to play (e.g. know the difference between the dice and when to use them, know how to do skill checks, saving throws, opportunity attacks, cast spells etc.). 


We provide the characters for you to choose from and final selection will be made at the start of the game. 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. You are always welcome to re-flavor your character including name and gender. We will do our best to post the characters here and to our socials before game day to ease the character selection decision, and you will have the choice to use our custom character sheets or play digitally on (bring your own device).


We begin at 6pm and the game is expected to go to 9:00 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. We provide dice, trays, minis and character sheets -- all you need to bring is yourself (and your device if you wish to use a digital character sheet)! 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)

Each of the Courageous And Thoroughly Astute Learned Investigators Seeking Truth and Safeguarding treasures (CATALYSTS) has pledged to search, rescue, protect and return treasured ARTifacts using their skills and expertise. Some are scholars (but still badass in battle!), and some are strongly built, specialized security forces.

Observant Resilient Custodian of Scholars

These characters have high AC, constitution, and hit points, who are often melee specialists dedicated to protecting the party with their bodies. Great for anyone who just wants to smash stuff! 

The security team! 


Diligent Optimistic Resourceful Scholar

These characters are usually intelligence or wisdom based users of magic, flavored as a scholarly area of expertise. They tend to be more role-play heavy and often have knowledge the player will be prompted to share with the party (provided on a handout at the start of the game).  

The Scholars! 


Below you will find the list of characters available for this game. Keep scrolling to see more details like their backstory and character sheets.


Experienced players, be sure to bring your device if you'd like to play with a digital character sheet.
