On Saturday, September 5th, Eric and Drew will be running a demo of an RPG game  called Insanity, beginning at noon.

Here’s a little info:

Insanity is very much a beer and pretzel game – it’s not to be taken seriously. Players play normal folk who are a little edgy. Then, something over the course of the session pushes them over the edge and they go on a murderous rampage we refer to as Frenzy. Combat is simple and fast. And this is one RPG you can actually win; last player standing wins (basically leveling up).

Insanity is an exercise in adaptive thinking:  when a character Frenzies, they enter a dissociative fugue state, thinking they are someone else and that the entire world around them now fits that paradigm. For example, one frenzied character may believe they are He-Man, and that they have to find Kringer and defeat the evil hordes of Skeleton, another character may enter frenzy a few rounds later and think they are a Spartan super soldier from Halo and that they need 25 kills to win the match. It becomes quite humorous watching how these delusions are role-played out.

Drew and Eric are both planning on running a few sessions and will have pre-made characters available.  Sounds like an interesting concept.  Come check it out!
