Intervention 6 will be hosting a large dedicated gaming room with a large selection of games available for open gaming, with the room open all weekend long.
We will also have some panels over the course of the weekend specifically related to gaming:
Introduction to Game Mastering for RPGs:
You can’t have a roleplaying game without a Game Master! But many people are frightened of stepping up to run games — it’s a lot of pressure! This panel is designed to help players become GMs, and new GMs to become better and more confident in the role.
Topics of discussion would include controlling the game, working with pre-made modules, creating original stories and dungeons, pacing, designing fun and effective (and dangerous!) encounters, and knowing when to follow the rules — and when to make the call to ignore them.
Intro To Tabletop Roleplaying Games:
Tabletop Roleplaying Games — lots of people have heard of them, but what are they, exactly? And how do you get involved? Why are the books so thick? And what’s with those crazy dice?!?!
This panel is for all the people who’ve heard of Tabletop Roleplaying Games (RPGs) and are interested in trying them out — but have no idea where to start. We’ll demystify a gaming world that’s been around for 40 years, but still sometimes scares people away. The panel will answer the most basic questions, starting with “What IS roleplaying, anyway?” It’ll explore how to start a game with friends, the tools you’ll need, the different types of games that are out there (it’s not just D&D!), and even some online options to help play remotely. There’ll also be some tips and tricks to make those first gaming sessions as fun as possible.
