The RPG Pharaoh’s Challenge

October 15, 2018



The RPG Pharaoh once again emerges from his Iron Gaming Pyramid and issues out the command: “Ancient Spirits of Role Playing, send out the call for the  The RPG Pharaoh’s Challenge!”


Do you have what it takes to be the RPG Pharaoh’s GM?  The Pharaoh’s challenge must be met: The Game Master who shows their ability to prepare and run an RPG given certain... royal constraints will win this awesome title for the year 2019.  (Along with some other cool prizes, including an Eternal Membership with SCARAB Gaming Convention.)


GMs will be given random elements to work into their games, which could include:

Plot hooks, NPCs, Maps, Strange Props, And maybe, more…






They will get (at least) an hour to prepare their game, and run it for ordinary convention goers of SCARAB Gaming Convention, some of whom will be SCARAB Staff Members, ad the previous year's winner: Donald Dennis,


… but wait!  The Pharaoh has declared an even bigger challenge to the GMs:  Each GM will be given a Random Gaming System to run their game in! (Last year's games included a variety of games from the Era line by Shades of Vengeance.)


The call has gone out to the challengers.  Four GMs will compete, but only one will be victorious!  GM's wishing to compete should contact Jon via email at jonmaness @ s-c-a-r-a-b.com. 



Players wishing to sign up and play, may do so at SCARAB Gaming Con, Saturday, January 19, 2019 (2pm Slot).  Sign up will be available on Warhorn.net.
