Weekend in RokuganWeekend in Rokugan is an amazing three-day tabletop roleplaying convention in Overland Park, Kansas, March 13-15, 2014. It is the "home" convention for the largest living campaign focused on the Legend of the Five Rings world. This is the third iteration of Heroes of Rokugan, which has attracted thousands of players from around the world to take part in a collaborative storytelling and gaming experience like none other.

However, while the campaign has always been free to play, the costs of running the show have gone up as time has gone on. This year, we're in a nicer hotel, which is great! But it costs more, which is less great. Normally, samurai would not concern themselves with lowly matters of commerce, but in this case, the cause is worth it!

This is the fifth and final Winter in Rokugan convention for Heroes of Rokugan III. We'd love it if you joined us!

It's a fun event and if you have a character and haven't already heard of this, check it out. It's an awesome game with a lot of awesome people. You won't be disappointed. Unless you hate Feudal Japan. Then you're just wrong. Have fun people!

Extra Life 2014

For the Kids

The RPGKC Extra Life 2014 special event is being held in conjunation with our monthly Game Day, Saturday, October 11th at Galaxy Games' new location at 3500 S 22nd St, St. Joseph, MO (map).

What is it?

In addition to our usual RPGs and board games, we are soliciting donations for the Extra Life charity, benefiting Children's Miracle Network hospitals. Each year Extra Life organizes gaming marathons. Participants solicit donations from friends, familiy, anyone really, similar to the March of Dimes' March for Babies and Bikers for Babies or the Alheimer's Association's Walk to Remember. Donors usually pitch in a dollar for every hour gamed. Game 24 hours, each donor pitches in $24. Voila! We aren't gaming 24 hours at Galaxy Games, but we are gaming 12! How about $2 for each hour? =)

Extra Life Display PictureHow can I help?

Help just by coming and participating, or donating a few dollars (or more), or join our team to solicit donations/sponsors yourself! The charity works all year, culminating in a national gaming event October 25th, so if you can't help out at our special Game Day event, consider alternatives.
