Creator of Draiochta @ Adventure Games today!

One of the creators of Draiochta the RPG, Jay will be at Adventure Games helping them celebrate Free RPG Day by running a brand new unpublished module! The Event and module start at noon and plays again at 3pm. All you need to play is your mind…oh yeah, bring your body too. Something has to roll the dice and carry the large brains us geeks and nerds have.

Today’s adventure: Mecha-techo-spelanco (gnomish for cave with lots of gadgets)
Can your team find and stop the crazy ancient clockwork machines that are terrorizing local towns? Who is behind it and why? Can your team put an end to the madness?

Update from the Labs

Hey all Jay here. I wanted to pop on let you all know what’s going on here at the Labs. We have been quiet for a few months and I am sure you were beginning to wonder. Surprise! We are still here, we have just been uber focused on creating some new great games for you.

Check out our almost beta release of Ep-Bit Battles Currently only available to you our friends!

We are nearing completion of our Draiochta (dray ack ta) revised edition coming to a game store near  you, Amazon and fresh of the press at drivethrurpg within the next couple months. There are still some numbered collector editions floating out there at game stores and on Amazon. These will not be reprinted and they have the original concept art that will probably never be reproduced. Get ’em here

The majority of the files have been uploaded to the printers for Maelstrom! You can get your player booster packs HERE. These packs have the chance to pull a very special Uber Epic rare hero.  These are also only available to you our favorite people.

Get em early before they go live!

I’ll try to update you all very soon.

Draiochta Plays for Extra Life Oct. 17

Draiochta Labs is psyched to begin a 24 hour game jam at noon on Saturday, October 17. Not only will the team be playing games for an extended period of time, they’ll be raising money in the process!

Extra Life is a group that was created a few years ago with the mission to help children. Gamers play, well, games, all over the nation and take donations for each hour of gameplay, each game played, or just general donations. Where does this money go? To Children’s Hospitals. Draiochta will be specifically playing for the Children’s Hospitals of Wisconsin.

The public is welcome to join us anytime for this great event. Bring games to play or play some of ours – either way, just show up to the DL office for some great times!

If you want to join our team, you can be going to this link to sign up for Team Draiochta. We hope to see lots of people who are ready to play!

Sharfenhaufer’s Draiochta Survival Tip

Draiochta Labs

Imagine a world filled with elemental magic and steam punk technology. Erase what you know of your world and allow yourself to imagine humanoid dogs, cats and alligators. Now, imagine you are walking with your best friend, but your friend is a centaur that stands 8 ft at the shoulders. As you are walking you catch a sweet smell of some unknown substance, you look over and see a fae fluttering around inside of the apothecary shop, creating a potion. As you approach your destination you spot a glimpse of a strange wheeled machine that is carting around a gnome with bushy hair and a weird looking backpack that seems to be emitting steam.

You arrive at The Un-Stable Inn, open the door and waft of cooked mutton crosses your nose. You smile as you recognize some of your friends Tully the leprechaun tavern owner, Onyx the fae blacksmith, Bruno the wolvec adventurer, Lar the slithix prize fighter and Ty’Kil the shar’kal acrobat. You and your friend find a spot at the “trough table”. As you sit down you think to yourself there should be more meeting places like this. So many other inns do not accommodate your centaur friend.

Tully breaks into a boisterous story of how your group once took on 8 bandits that thought they could waylay your group and make off with Tully’s barrels. He goes on in a jovial manner about the sheer horror that befell the bandits faces as you leap off the wagon kicking one of the unsuspecting bandits in the face while throwing a dagger at the next and how the group easily made quick work of bandits and sent them home naked and bound to one another.

Ty’Kil pipes up, that reminds me about the time we…

Fondue Fest

fond du fest

What does Draiochta Labs have in common with melted cheese? Both of these things will be at Fondue Fest in Downtown Fond du Lac on Saturday, September 12! One of the largest festivals in the city, Fondue Fest will have tons of food and fun spilling into the streets from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Draiochta Labs will be located right in front of the Combined Building on the corner of Main and First Streets with fun for the whole family. Check out martial arts demonstrations by our numero uno, Jay, and meet some of our awesome team.


Stick around for a while and play our family friendly game -VS-. You’ll get to debate with your friends and family on which food is better. Is cake better than pie? Are nachos better than pretzels? Better yet, put a spin on the game for the day and bring fondue into the mix! Is fondue better than pretzels? You better be ready to explain why!


Not only can you have fun with our -VS- game, we’ll have our other games displayed so you can find out more about what Draiochta does and how we are changing the gaming world forever!


So stop on down by Draiochta Labs while you’re taking in the sights and smells of the festival and say hi to our guys and gals both old and new!
