Adventurers Wanted: A 250-Hour Epic Tabletop Roleplaying Game (Total Party Kill! in association with Sweet Venues)

By | Published on Thursday 17 August 2017

A slavering beast approaches, mandibles chattering. You steel yourself, gripping your dagger. What do you do? Such scenarios are commonplace in Total Party Kill!’s mammoth tabletop roleplaying game, a continuing story running 10 hours per day in hourly instalments. The atmosphere is relaxed – get a player ticket and get stuck in, or simply hang back as a spectator. The format means you unavoidably feel like you’ve wandered in halfway through a film – references abound to events you have no knowledge of, and in-group jokes will fly over your head. If you’re familiar with tabletop games, then you’ve probably already got your ticket. If not, give it a try. It won’t be quite like anything else you do at the Fringe.

Sweet Holyrood, until 28 Aug.
