Hello there, and welcome to E.G.O.-Maniac Mondays!

This is the first in a weekly series of blogs keeping you up to date on the Evil Genius Organized-Play (E.G.O.) program, and all the fun things we have in store for our players and retailers! Stay tuned! the rules for E.G.O. character creation will be LIVE on our website soon!

While we originally planned to release two of our Plots and two Assignments on Wednesday, January 24th, we had a tiny technical error that needs to be cleaned up, which will result in one of the Assignment adventures coming out a day or so late. All of the others are slated to be out on time, ready for our Goons (GMs) to run with! Over the course of the next week, we’ll also begin onboarding our Evil Minions (volunteers) and getting them equipped with everything they need to help get our program off the ground.

Just like the best RPG sessions with a new team of Everyday Heroes, the best way to start something like this is with character introductions—and we do have some real great characters here who have poured a lot of time and energy into making E.G.O. a reality in an extremely short amount of time. Without these people, this program would not exist!

Finally, Matt Francella is the E.G.O. Cartographer, whose maps will be featured in all of our organized play adventures. Matt has a keen eye for detail, and even outside of E.G.O. games, you’re going to love using his maps for your games! If you want to pick up high-resolution copies of Matt’s maps from our E.G.O. adventures, head over to his website at https://www.mattsmaps.org/everyday-places/

And for me—you can catch the “Introducing E.G.O.” blog or my recent Interview with Gaming Divination to hear me talk a bit more about myself and our program. Riding the proverbial whirlwind, I am the producer of the E.G.O. adventurers (wrangler of authors and stories) while also setting up the volunteer-side of things. I’m sure you’ll be hearing a lot more from me in the weeks ahead. If you really want to read more about me beyond the above links, you can find a list of my works in the RPG industry here: https://canisdirus.carrd.co/. If you need to reach me for anything related to the program, please send me an email at [email protected]

As we launch into the very first week of the Evil Genius Organized-Play program, we truly hope you have a great time with the adventures and systems we’ve set up for you to experience. Make sure to keep track of your best (and funniest) game stories, too—I want to hear all about them, and feature them in our future E.G.O.-Maniac Monday blogs!


Evil Genius Games Hosts “The Dark Gathering” – A Multi-Table RPG Event with the “Highlander Cinematic Adventure”

Indianapolis, IN, Sunday, 6, 2023 – Evil Genius Games is working to push the boundaries of immersive modern role-playing experiences by hosting a multi-table RPG event, centered around their popular Highlander Cinematic Adventure – a pivotal piece of the renowned Everyday Heroes System.

Answering an irresistible call, 60 enthusiastic players were drawn to Chicago, enticed by the tantalizing mystery: Is this the true Gathering of Immortals or a sinister ritual culminating in a climactic battle? As the story unfolded, participants grappled with the pivotal question, “Can you be the ONE to survive and claim the Prize?” By the end of the gripping event, only one Immortal remained, proudly wielding a coveted replica sword from Highlander as their prize. This honor went to Tommy Gatton. We also gave a replica sword to one of our outstanding Game Masters, JoshTanski. We want to thank everyone who joined us for this monumental event.

This exclusive Highlander adventure was meticulously written by the talented Michael Bramnik and underwent rigorous development at the hands of experts Sigfried Trent and Ivis Flanagan. The event’s rapid sell-out stands as a testament to the dedication and excitement of the Evil Genius gaming community and the growing popularity of the Everyday Heroes system.
