For all those who have always wanted to try a pen & paper role-playing game, the Games & LAN is the perfect chance to do so! One-shots are the perfect opportunity to take part in a small adventure as one of the heroines or heros. The players are guided by a game master, but the course of the adventure will be decided by the players.

On Staturday, there will be several role playing rounds taking place in different settings. Dungeon and Dragons (Fantasy), Shadow Run (Cyberpunk), Blades in the Dark (Victorian London/Gothic), the choice is up to the player.

If you would like to lead a roleplaying round at the LAN, then write just send us a mail to

We are living in an industrialized state in the 21st century, what do you think the answer is?

See “Is there a toilet?”

As much as I’d like to see you people getting creative with how you get your own electricity, I’m in deep sorrow to tell you that the answers going to be: See “Is there a toilet” or “Do you provide Internet”
