What is the Lakeland Role Playing Guild?

The Lakeland Role Playing Guild was founded to serve the hobby-related interests of the residents of Lakeland, Florida, the greater central Florida area and beyond through convention participation and biweekly meetings encompassing gaming events, seminars, workshops and demonstrations. Our mission is to forge a community wherein its members can engage in and exhibit their creativity, intellect, progressive thinking and problem solving skills.

How often does the guild meet?

We meet on the 2nd and 4th Fridays of every month from 7:00pm to 11:30pm. Sometimes we have special events outside of guild meetings (movie outings, cons, etc) and this information can be found on our forum and our Facebook page. During the holidays our schedule is sometimes affected, but always announced online and in person.

Does it cost to be a guild member?

Guild membership is $40 per person, per year or you pay $5 per session if you don't want to become a member, yet still want to help cover event expenses.

All guild dues are collected in September and are prorated mid-way through the membership year. Dues and event fees help pay for our meeting space, supplies used during meetings (plates, utensils and cups for snacks), and for things like flyers and such.

Can I try it out before becoming a member? How do I join?

Absolutely! We encourage you to "test drive" the guild by attending several meetings before deciding to become an official member. Get to know fellow gamers and try some games for a little while. When you're ready to join, just ask a guild member to point you in the direction of the Guild Master.

Are Guild meetings family-friendly?

Yes! We often have kids playing board games and tabletop RPGs. It's how we keep the hobby continuing throughout the generations!

What do I need to bring? What games will be played each meeting?

Pencil, some dice (but if you don't have any, don't worry, someone is always able to loan you some), and if you're so inclined snacks to share. Games vary depending on the date, but we always have multiple tables running various RPGs and board games. Sometimes we have open tables available for members to share their home table game systems and adventures as well. We do have a schedule up on Facebook and the events are posted there for each meeting with a full description.
