Game Master Profiles

In case you wanted to learn more about the fantastic people who run games for the program, I’ve added profiles for all three of our Game Masters on the About page. I’m still waiting for profile submissions from Alex and Joe, so expect some changes to those profiles in the near future.


Rhül:Conquest of the New World

Join us tonight, Monday, October 25 for Rhül:Conquest of the New World. 6:00 pm at the Lewisville Public Library.

Shadows of Prophecy

Having escaped the Tangle of Madness and won the Iron Maiden’s graces, the heroes now stand at a crossroads. The prophecy looms large as you must decide which course to follow next.

Join us for Warlords of Aros.
Monday, October 18th, 6 pm at the Lewisville Public Library.

All Quiet in Seric

Less than a day’s travel from New Brion, Seric is a small colony of mystics, soothsayers, and warlocks. Once a bustling little thorp, things have now gone mysteriously quiet. What has happened to the people of Seric? Perhaps the strange tower north of town holds the answers.

Join us for Rhül:Conquest of the New World.

New Facebook Groups

As part of our program upgrade rollout, we have introduced new Facebook groups for both of the Roleplaying program games, Rhül:Conquest of the New World and Warlords of Aros. The original plan of having a single group for the program got kiboshed by our librarian friends, but groups for the individual games is just fine. In addition to providing a forum for discussion of the different games, we’ll be using the calendar functions to alert players as to upcoming events. This is a huge step up from our previous process, which involved sending regular emails to 15+ different addresses. Ah! Glorious progress!

So if you are a player or parent with Facebook access, be sure to sign up. If not, be sure and register for email alerts from this site to receive announcements and schedule information.

Welcome to the new Lewisville Public Library Teen Roleplaying site!

Can you believe it’s been over three years?  Three years since we first sat a table at the Lewisville Public Library and taught a group of kids what a d10 was, and how to explore a world that existed only in their imaginations.  Back then, quite frankly, we were just hoping people would come back next month to play again!

In the three years since we began the roleplaying program at the Lewisville Public Library, we’ve gone from a once a month, two and a half hour game session to hosting two alternating episodic game campaign, with as many as fifteen players at a time, as well as contests for monster and adventure creation and a miniature figure painting workshop.  The response to the program, from the library personnel, kids, parents, and others, has been phenomenal.  It’s been so successful that its inspired many others to go out and sponsor or create similar programs in other public libraries across the nation.

It’s been so successful, we simply outgrew the format and purpose of the previous site!  There are so many players, so many twists, so many hooks, that we just could not maintain the semi-weekly episodic updates across two blogs.  The increased popularity of Facebook also forced us to question whether or not we were using the best medium to serve the players and followers of the program.

Our new site aspires to be a hub that joins all the different aspects of the program together.  Here we aspire not only to be a portal by which players and parents can learn more about the program and roleplaying in general, but serve other enthusiasts and librarians who wish to create roleplaying programs of their own.  It has always been our intent to promote the roleplaying hobby beyond the program itself, to encourage our players to go out and explore the other aspects of the hobby, be it wargaming, miniature painting, cartography, board games, or create and run campaigns of their own.  This too, we hope to encourage and shepherd through this site.

Soon, we hope to migrate all the resources from the old Warlords of Aros blog here, as well as provide similar resources for Rhül:Conquest of the New World.  Once that is done, we will slowly begin bringing new features and columns online.  So please be patient as we bring things up to speed around here.

And for all of you who have helped make this program so successful, with your attendance, your interest, your praise or simple enthusiasm, thank you every one!
