    • Enjoy a custom made one-shot campaign specifically for Game Day. Here’s the plot:

Seasons change and with spring snow melt comes celebrations of the warm months ahead. Most nights, the town of Shimston is safe. Most nights, it is quiet, too. Tonight, however, the town of Shimston is bustling as Blossomfest is finally here! Last year’s festival was canceled from late winter rains but this year, the weather is clear and the food stores have lasted quite well through the winter. There is feasting and singing and dancing and all manner of revelry! All the farmers from the outskirts come up the road to the town square! All the children, wide-eyed and cheery-cheeked! It is a celebration of togetherness and family. But all is not well.

When everyone has had their fill and all the children are safely tucked in their beds, a great crashing thunder echoes through the town. Glass shattering, walls breaking, the snapping of bones. Townsfolk peer from behind closed curtains and barred doors yet see nothing. The sounds came from the town square and in the morning, they will see the ransacked food stores and the shattered glass of the temple window.

It is with the utmost importance, and utmost opportunity, that this mystery is solved. Some are drawn by the chance to prove themselves, some are drawn by the town’s reward – which are you?

  • Free Play Games

    • There will be game masters dedicated to running these free play games throughout the day. Everyone is welcome to drop-in and out of these games for the entirety of Game Day.
