Lakeland Role Playing Guild provides two gaming events each month on the 2nd and 4th Fridays from 7:00-11:30pm. We meet at 3140 Troy Avenue in Lakeland (inside the UU Congregation of Lakeland).

Our events provide multiple scheduled gaming tables as well as room for open tables for board games or card games or pick up RPG games. Check out our event descriptions in the category Guild News, Announcements, and Schedule.

Events are free to check out, although we do encourage regular attendees to join the Guild. Beginning in Activity Year 18 (Sept 2017), dues are $40 per person to become a member. If you do not wish to become a member, after two visits as a guest, there will be a $2 door charge to play. Your dues help us pay for our rent of the space and other items as needed.

We do not provide matchmaking services for home tables. We do not advertise home tables. We are involved primarily with running our two mini-con events each month. If members wish to recruit for their own personal home tables, they are welcome to do so both at Guild events as well as in the member-only section of the forum. The Guild holds no responsibility for those tables run outside of Guild.
Welcome to the new Lakeland Role Playing Guild forums. All content has been imported from our old system and slightly reorganized. If you encounter any issues or cannot located particular content, drop me a message in the Off Topic category by including @mightyrocket or send us an email at guild @

A few notes:

1. First and second time visitors are free to check us out.
2. After that we ask that you either become a member at $40 a year or pay $2 at the door. If you are a past member and have not renewed, it is $2 at the door.
3. If you'd like to reserve a seat at any table, just comment here with which table you'd like and we'll put you down. We will alert once a table is considered full and names will go to a waiting list for that table. We do request that you arrive by 7:15pm to claim your spot. Unless we hear otherwise, your spot will be released at 7:30 for the waiting list.

Now on to our games:

Table 1: BattleTech 3039 - House Davion of the Federated Commonwealth wages renewed war against its long-time foe House Kurita of the Draconis Combine. Taking advantage of this distraction, the House Liao of the Capellan Confederation strikes back against Davion in vengeance for losses suffered during the earlier and devastating Fourth Succession War. Full military resources have not been rebuilt by the Houses in recent years so much of these actions are untaken with mercenary commands taking large roles. It is a time of warfare and profit in the Inner Sphere! Guild Master Scott P runs this BattleTech Alpha Strike miniatures game and has room for eight players using pre-generated forces. All miniatures are provided!

Table 2: Mandarin Meerkats - The Empress is in jeopardy. What faction will your clan assist? Guild Member Howard Y runs this historical Cortex + game and has room for eight players using a mix of pre-generated and player created characters.

Table 3: Betrayal at Baldur's Gate - The shadow of Bhaal has come over Baldur’s Gate, summoning monsters and other horrors from the darkness! As you build and explore the iconic city’s dark alleys and deadly catacombs, you must work with your fellow adventurers to survive the terrors ahead. That is, until some horrific evil turns one—or possibly more—of you against each other. Was it a mind flayer’s psionic blast or the whisperings of a deranged ghost that caused your allies to turn traitor? You’ll have no choice but to keep your enemies close! Guild Member Eric L runs this board game with room for three to six players.

Table 4: Barel's Blade - This six game story arc takes place in the Beasts and Barbarians setting for the Savage Worlds rule set. Players that play in each of the sessions will be able to continue with the heroes they had in the previous session and be able to influence their upgrades as the characters progress. Guild Member Shawn A runs this Savage Worlds game and has room for eight players using pre-generated characters.

As always, we have our open tables available and a Teen Table.

    Thanks to the excellent work of my go-to painter (thank you, Tracie), I have more BattleTech minis for the table. I have begun working on the scenario I'll be presenting at this Guild Event and I am thinking that it will be a three-way battle. Finalizing the unit rosters and map sheets insanely early by my standards so I might even be able to take a test run of this before official game time!

  • I am so severely bummed that I will be missing this.
