TORG FreeRPGDay Sign-Up Thread

Postby Eric USNA » Thu Apr 06, 2017 9:55 am

As I mentioned in today's post, Torg is participating in this year's Free RPG Day!

We won't have physical products (for Torg) on the shelves, so the best way we can encourage stores to participate is to get people in the door. You can help by running events at those local stores. And because the Kickstarter will have finished well before Free RPG Day, everyone who backs the Kickstarter will already have their PDFs in time for those events!

If you know a store near you that's participating, great! Help them out by offering to run a game of Torg!

If you don't know whether your local store is participating, ask! If they say no or they're not sure, suggest that you would be willing to run and publicize games to help bring people in.

Meanwhile, in this thread, help us keep track of where you'll be. If you are planning to run a game, please reply to this thread with the following:

Name of the Store
Yes/No for FreeRPGDay Participation
Whether you'll be running full Torg or the trimmed-down demo (anyone who backs the Kickstarter will be able to run full Torg)
Times for your events, and any other information that's relevant

You may not have some of that information right away, so you can start by just saying you'd like to run an event and then update your post later. (Please edit old posts instead of adding new ones. That will make it easier for me to track.)

I would be really glad to run a full demo at my LGS if they approve it.

The store is:

The Green Dragon
7671 Northwoods Blvd
Charleston SC 29406

They are not registered yet, but I have contacted them.

I will be running Torg at:

Patriot Games
Sheffield, UK
Jim's store always participates in FreeRPGDay
I will probably be running the demo game, though I am backing the KS to the hilt!

Do you plan to offer the free RPG day product as a PoD option in late june/july for those of us who are too far from a participating store ?

I'll be running 3 games!

Guardian Games
Portland, Oregon, USA
Yes, they're participating.
Times: noon and 2pm

Probably the full game but since that store prefers 2 hour time blocks I might use the trimmed down version.

It may be released in PDF form after the fact, but probably not print-on-demand.

Haven't contacted them yet, but Salt Lake Gamecon is in the beginning of July. I'd be interested in running a full game there. I wanted to contact you first to see if you are already covered at the event before talking to them.

We're not currently at Salt Lake Gamecon that I know of. Thanks for asking!

(Note - when you do schedule your events, please post them in a new thread with the convention listed in the title. This thread is mostly for Free RPG Day.)

I'm planning on hosting an event in the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania area for Free RPG Day. Just waiting for final ok from my venue at The Games Chateau

Long time fan of Torg and proud to have a complete set of West End Games Torg products (many thanks to West End Games who helped me complete my set even when they were shutting down. They were awesome.
