TABLETOP GAMING SCHEDULE: https://tinyurl.com/FFTabletopGameSchedule2022

BACKGROUND

Since 2018, The Virtual Tabletop Gaming Society has organized Tabletop Programming at Fantasy Faire. The event would not be possible without the dedicated staff and event volunteers who step up every year to bring this unique form of entertainment to the Faire and to Second Life. Games in particular provide a unique opportunity for players to come together to tell a story while having a good time. Much like a band of nobles who gather to solve a monarch’s murder mystery of the lord, or novice adventurers that dive recklessly into a cave that promises treasure, games spark the imagination, and everyone contributes to the team effort regardless of their overall abilities. In 2018, Nyza and Kitori started things off in “The Bazaar Dungeon”, hosting well over 40 hours of entertainment, and being able to raise over 25,000 Lindens.

In 2019, “story-altering powers” were added which allowed all members of the audience the ability to alter the story or add some unique flair to a game session. Such powers may come in the form of granting player character new abilities, sudden and unexpected celebrity encounters, dice re-rolls, and so on. There was also a unique public auction that consisted of many real-life products up for grabs from well-known tabletop publishers. There was also the “Choose the Villain” contest devised by Kitori for her game campaign. Over 35,000 Lindens were raised in 2019, and Tabletop Central was located on two sims: Thornfast (that year’s Quest Sim) and Tensors’ Flying Market.

In 2020, despite the hardship of the COVID-19 global pandemic, Tabletop Central was able to raise nearly 100,000 Lindens. New for 2020 was the inclusion of tabletop classes and the “Milestones” event, which allowed talented creators to join together with the tabletop community to offer some gifts to donors who helped fundraise for Tabletop Central. In 2020, Tabletop Central has located on the sim Lamented Fens.

For 2021, much of what has made Tabletop Central successful in the past returned with a few modifications and at a larger scale. The Milestones incentives expanded much greater, reaching 17 unique creators from RL to SL, offering back to the community some of the loveliest appreciative gifts for the community’s generosities. The new touch that is expected to become a yearly tradition at Fantasy Faire was the introduction of “Avatar Chess” and the chance to participate in the silent auction to become one of the Chess pieces and listen to some fantasy-style commentaries. Our home in 2021 during Fantasy Faire will be at Scrimshaw Warrens. When Fantasy Faire is concluded, we managed to raise 145,000 Lindens.

For 2022, taking into account everything that is going on in the world, the Milestones incentives will take a break for this year in preparation for the expansion expected in the coming years. Avatar Chess and its Silent Auction will make a return this year along with many series of fun tabletop games this year. Stay tuned, let the dice roll and your stories unfold.
