Clubs at Kortepohja

Peer-organized social hobby clubs meet at Kortepohja in the afternoon or evening, each focusing on a specific area of interest. Some club activities include an instructor, others are more informal gatherings.


Role-playing Game Club Marope

Time: Mondays at 6 p.m.
Place: Clubroom of R building (Taitoniekantie 9, R building staircase B)

Role-playing games involve interactive story-telling. You adopt the role of a fictional character in the narrative planned by the game master. Anyone is welcome to join the game and to learn more about role-playing games as a hobby. Food offerings are welcome. No earlier experience of role-playing games is necessary; you only need to be interested in getting inside the head of another person. The facilities may force limitations to the number of players.

Due to the nature of the group, at least intermediate Finnish skills are required. If you want to start an English-speaking game, gather a group of friends and adopt a game master to get started with your own!
