TABLETOP GAMING SCHEDULE: https://tinyurl.com/vzjz7s5

BACKGROUND

Since 2018, Fantasy Faire has hosted a series of tabletop gaming sessions that have been open to the general public. Games provide a unique opportunity for players to tell a story together while having a good time. Much like the bands of nobles who gather to solve a murder mystery of the lord, or a novice adventurers to dive recklessly into a cave that promises treasure, or a horde of goblins going about their shenanigans, games that spark the imagination,  and everyone contributes to the team effort regardless of their overall abilities.

In 2019, we continued to open our arms to welcome many talented story-tellers and Gamemasters from all around Second Life to come over and held amazing game sessions. And for the first time ever, we allowed all members of the audience the ability to alter the story as a mark of divine power for their charitable contributions, such powers may come in the form of granting player character’s new abilities, sudden and unexpected celebrity encounters,  dice re-rolls, and so on. And these powers did not stop with the story itself, the audience was able to alter the accents from a serious to a funny one of both the characters and the GMs through the session as well. 

For 2020, building on the success of 2019, we are going to introduce Tabletop Game Classes to the general audience and newcomers who haven’t had any experience with several specific Tabletop games while keeping most of the successful aspects that have been built upon in the past. This year, we are once again introducing new tools to aids with the communications and reinforcing the general rules to minimize the interruptions to the story-telling session while bringing in exciting gifts from multiple fantastic Second Life creators to reward the generosity of the donors who contributes to the charitable cause. Much like an experience bar, we are experimenting with a milestone or tier, so with a minimum of 250L$ (or 1USD) donated to the Fantasy Faire kiosk, donors and participants will gain access to the gift room with certain gifts depending on the milestone that we have reached together. Together, we will go home with great times while doing the world well.
