Gauntlet Calendar is our space for playing roleplaying games online. Our calendar hosts over 100 game events per month. We play a variety of systems and genres, with an emphasis on indie RPGs, story games, and the OSR. Gamers who subscribe to our Patreon at the $10+ level get three days of RSVP priority for all new games. After that anyone can join a game. If the game you want to join doesn't have room, join the waitlist! You'll receive an email notification if space opens up.
Three Steps to Getting Involved
Step 1: Check the RSVP Site
To see the schedule of games and to RSVP, go to the website linked below. Once you login, event start times will be listed in your local timezone (when not logged in, times shown are EDT). By default, games are presented in a list, with upcoming games at the top. You can see the games presented in different forms by clicking All Events Info or Calendar.
Step 2: Watch the Gauntlet Calendar Section of our Forums
New games are announced on the Gauntlet Calendar section of our forums. To be alerted when new games hit the schedule, join the forums and turn on notifications for that section.
Step 3: Consider becoming a $10 Patreon Subscriber
The best way to get involved with the Gauntlet Calendar is to subscribe to our Patreon at the $10+ level. At this level Patrons get RSVP priority to new games as well as access to our Slack group, where pick-up games are regularly organized. Your $10+ subscription supports everything we do in the Gauntlet, and also gives you access to the Codex magazine.
Running Games on the Gauntlet Calendar
Unlike many larger platforms, the Gauntlet is a pretty selective place when it comes to new games on our calendar. We place emphasis on play culture and safety, and so we prefer game facilitators play several sessions with us before they begin adding games. That's not a hard and fast rule, and we make exceptions when there is an opportunity to satisfy a particular need of the community, but it is a very strong preference. The use of safety tools and adherence to our Code of Conduct are required as well. We also have some community resources and mentors to help folks get set up as game facilitators. If you are interested in running games for Gauntlet Calendar, get in touch with Lowell Francis. Lowell can be contacted via social media (@edige23) or via DM on our Slack.
