DnD & Roleplaying Groups

A roleplaying game, abbreviated RPG is a game in which players assume the roles of characters in a fictional setting. Players take responsibility for acting out these roles within a narrative, either through literal acting or through a process of structured decision-making regarding character development. Actions taken within many games succeed or fail according to a formal system of rules and guidelines.

There are several forms of role-playing games. The original form, sometimes called the tabletop role-playing game (TRPG), is conducted through discussion, whereas in live action role-playing (LARP), players physically perform their characters' actions. In both of these forms, an arranger called a game master (GM) usually decides on the rules and setting to be used, while acting as the referee; each of the other players takes on the role of a single character

Adventure in RPGs is unlike that in other genres, because RPGs often give you the chance to control your own fate and dictate the experience. For that reason, these games feel like an even more enjoyable joy ride than others! They are personalized, detail-oriented, and thrilling. 

You could have a long-sword and trot off on a horse to a medieval battle. You could blast zombies with a laser gun. You could be a lizard-like creature with humanoid features and a desire to swim through inner-city ponds.

At The Games Room, a team of professional GMs run regular RPG sessions, designed to be suitable for all experience levels - all you need to do is show up ready for an adventure!

Personal Game Masters


Some of you may already have a fantastic group of  buddies ready to get in to the world of RPG, or a group who would like to dabble in to another RPG realm, and you may simply be looking for a GM to guide your way.

The Stable GMs are always happy to help, and 'personal' sessions can be booked for groups of 3 or more players.

Get in touch and let us know how we can help.

If you are a GM or fancy getting a bit more experience as a GM, we'd love to hear from you too and can often pair you up with a group who would be very grateful for your services.
