RPG Sessions

Over in the tabletop area, we have four dedicated tables which will running continuous Call of Cthulhu and RuneQuest sessions from 11.00am - 11.00 pm each day (4pm on Sunday). For that, we must thank the wonderful team of volunteer "Tabletop Teacher" Keepers and Gamemasters who will be running the sessions.

We're also running two seminars, both of which will be well worth attending!

CALLING CTHULU

“No swords. No wizards. Just regular humans, in way over their heads as they work to uncover the mind-shattering horrors of the Lovecraftian mythos. That's the promise of the Call of Cthulhu RPG, and over 30 years later we're still coming back for more" (Gizmodo). A panel of leading Australian game writers and developers discuss the phenomenon that is Call of Cthulhu and its influence on bringing the Cthulhu Mythos into the mainstream popular imagination.
