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 @ lakeland-rpg.com.
Are you looking for a game or have an open spot at your home table? We added a Looking for Game category for Members only. Be sure to check it out. Game on!

A couple of reminders:

1. All visitors can attend their first & second Guild Events for free to check us out.
2. After those two visits, you either can pay $5 at the door for every visit thereafter or become a full Guild Member for $40 for a one-year term.
3. If you wish to reserve a seat at a specific table, comment your preference here and we will put you on that table's list. We will make an announcement when a table is considered full, after which additional names will go on the stanby list for that table. Please arrive at the Guild Event by 7:15pm in order to claim your spot. If you do not arrive or do not let us know that you will be running a bit late, your spot will be released at 7:30 for those on standby.


Now, on to our games:

Tables 1 and 2 are the Final Exams for our latest round of the Game Master Academy under our College of Gaming program!

Table 1: Interstellar Overdrive -- W.E.S.T. (GM Phil)

It is a troublesome time for the Outland Colonies. What was supposed to be their refuge from the chaos of the greater Empire star systems has become a strategic hot spot. Internal conflicts, rogue factions, an oppressive church, and the ever-encroaching space-time anomalies from the mysterious Badlands has made the region desperately in need for those reluctant hapless heroes. Join the WEST freelance freighter crew as they scratch out a living in this fiercely independent and lawless region. (Part of the LRPG’s official science fiction In-House Campaign.)

Table 2: Interstellar Overdrive -- Couriers (GM Erika)

On the edge of Sector Orba sits a small region of space that is fully-aligned with (but not officially-claimed by) the Empire which lies several Jump transits coreward. The region also is influenced by the Technocracy some Jumps spinward. A team of Independent Scout Services agents is hired by an Imperial noble to find his missing child and learn that nothing is simple in politics or religion. (Part of the LRPG’s official science fiction In-House Campaign.)

Table 3: The LRPG's "Regular" D&D5e Game (GM Alex / Tristan)

Traditional high-fantasy with a bit of pop culture flavoring presented by a tag-team of two of our most dedicated Game Masters.

Table 4: D&D 5e -- The Hoard of the Dragon Queen (GM Glenn)

An Exclusive Event for our Teen Table! In an audacious bid for power, the Cult of the Dragon, along with its dragon allies and the Red Wizards of Thay, seek to bring Tiamat from her prison in the Nine Hells to Faerûn. To this end, they are sweeping from town to town, laying waste to all those who oppose them and gathering a hoard of riches for their dread queen. The threat of annihilation has become so dire that groups as disparate as the Harpers and Zhentarim are banding together in the fight against the cult. Never before has the need for heroes been so desperate.

Open Table 1: The LRPG's "Other" D&D5e Game (GM Eric)

A new high-fantasy adventure for novice heroes facing the great mysteries of the unknown.

  • My name is Eric Smith and my wife Lisa and I would like to make this our first event. We would like to join table 3 if possible. We are completely new to D & D but have been wanting to play for some time. If there are any openings at table 4 we would also like to bring 3 teens with us who would like to join that game.
  • Hello there Eric and thanks for checking in with us! I will put your names on the list for Table 3, Table 4 and even Open Table 1 and will contact those GMs about seating. It is not unusual for players to go direct to the game runners for seats but I will make sure that all of you guys get playing time. Looking forward to seeing you folks on Friday!

  • Hello Eric! I have an update about gaming on Friday.

    I have heard from some GMs and all of you certainly are going to get seats at tables. I have not heard directly from Alex & Tristan about seat availability at Table 3 but so far only a couple of players have claimed places officially, so getting to play that D&D5e game looks possible. There are other options though.

    Glenn, running Table 5 for the Teens, said that he is close to his player limit but can go over that a bit so all three of your kids can play together if that is what they want to do. Eric, running Open Table 1, said he would be very happy to take you & your wife at his D&D5e game where he already has a couple of new hobbyists.

    And Guild Alderman Rich & I both can have something available for all of you to play at should seat allocations fall through for some reason. (But, keep in mind that my game uses the Pathfinder rule set instead of D&D5e. The differences aren't terribly large but they do exist.)

    We all are looking forward to seeing you on Friday and introducing you to the hobby!

    Peace and respects,
    Guild Master Scott
