Next One Day Adventure Oct 23!

This One Day Adventure features a “One Shot” Adventure Game, a story that will be entirely contained to this event!  We’ll be playing The Last Dance, a game by Stella Feldschuh and Pika Whitman, two long time Wayfinder participants. Join us for a very special spooky One Day as we roll into the Halloween season!

This One Day will be a roleplay focused game with some horror elements so the age for this is 11 and up. (Our next One Day, set for November 20, will be the 5th entry in our Gelgador series and and will be open to children 8 and older.)

Writing Workshops Return Oct 24!

We are running two series of Writing Workshops this year.  First is our Submission Series which will take participants through the full process of writing an Adventure Game. Participants who come to all of the sessions will have a chance to work with a member of our Story Board and our Programming Director to see exactly what it is that goes into writing an Adventure Game, and write one of their very own. Our Story submission deadline is in late January, so participants could write and submit games for next season. This last summer alone we ran three games that were written in our Writing Workshop!  Registration is open! Dates: Oct 24, Nov 21, Dec 19, 2021 and Jan 16, 2022!

Second will be our Skills Series which will highlight specific elements of Adventure Game writing for participants. Each session we’ll take a close look at some of the more exciting (and often more difficult) elements of writing an Adventure, whether that be worldbuilding, coming up with monsters, or the intricacies of creating characters. In these sessions the writers of our Legends of Gelgador game series will bring some topics and ideas for participants to work on to put into the games as we run them in the Spring! We look forward to seeing you for this unique and exciting look into Adventure Games! Dates: Feb 20, Mar 20 and May 22, 2022.
