Saving...please wait...

2018 Game Nights

All dates and times are subject to change!

Events may be run more than once, so keep an eye out for announcements on the home page, email, Facebook and/or forums. This page will be updated as plans are modified and solidified. Contact Verran at verran@descentrangers.com if you are interested in hosting one or more of these game nights, or if you have an idea for something new to add. Or post in the forum thread.

Except where enforced restrictions are in place, extra weapons may be added to any level if the host and all players agree. Same with 'spawn with afterburners' and any other setting(s). Adjust as necessary.

Also, feel free to play any of these types of events whenever you want. You don't have to wait for the actual game night to try these out. If there's enough members online and willing to try something, give it a shot. Let us know if anything needs refinement, too, and we'll update as necessary.
