InSpectres by Jared Sorensen is a game about the burgeoning supernatural investigation and elimination market. Start a company and try to stay afloat long enough to cash in those sweet, sweet stock options.

Monster of the Week by Micheal Sands is a pen & paper roleplaying game of modern day monster hunters. There are monsters out there. Most people don’t believe in them, but they’re real. Mostly, when someone finds out that monsters are real, that’s just before they die. But some people are mean enough, smart enough, crazy enough, or hurt enough, that they live. They go on a crusade to kill the monsters. That’s who you are.

In Dogs in the Vineyard by D. Vincent Baker you play God’s Watchdogs in a West that never quite was. You stand between God’s law and the best intentions of the weak. You stand between God’s people and their own demons. Sometimes it’s better for one to die than for many to suffer. Sometimes, Dog, sometimes you have to cut off the arm to save the life. Does the sinner deserve mercy? Do the wicked deserve judgement? They’re in your hands.

A Few Changes

23 Jul

I am very happy to say that lately our games have been very well attended. So well, in fact, and so consistently, that we are forced to change our format just a bit.


First of all, thanks to everyone of you who has made this group a success. Without you guys RSGpdx would not be what it is, and maybe it wouldn’t be at all. This goes double for anybody who has facilitated a game.


For now on there will be two or three games to choose from, and we may not get to each one every time. But those games that we do not get around to may appear in the near future. Hopefully with this change we will be able to have tighter and more focused games that fit the time slot more effectively.


If you expect to be late it is important to voice your anticipated arrival time on either the facebook or Portland Gamers Meetup event page. If you say when you plan to be there and which of the games you would like to play (if you have a preference) then we will try to wait for you. But if you don’t speak up then we will just plow ahead and get gaming.


So… let’s game!



Session 23: A Thousand and One Nights

9 Jul

5pm – 9pm
Tuesday, July 17
Guardian Games
303 SE 3rd Ave at Pine St

Mysterious strangers. Beautiful women. Enchanted swords. Talking camels. You play members of the Sultan’s Court, whiling away the sultry nights by telling pointed stories to advance your own ambitions. Navigate the social maze and you could win your heart’s desire; offend the wrong person and you suffer the Sultan’s wrath.
