Imagine yourself as a fighter, wielding a broadsword to win your way free of enemy warriors. Or a wizard locked in a mystic combat. Perhaps you have pictured yourself as an infamous rogue, slinking into a dragon’s treasure cavern. This is the world of IFGS gaming, where you can roleplay anyone you want to be for a day.
The International Fantasy Gaming Society (IFGS) is a not-for-profit organization created to run safe, live-scale, outdoor fantasy games. If you like fantasy, science fiction, or heroic games, you will enjoy gaming with us. The IFGS has a live-scale fantasy gaming system with mechanisms for fighting, spell casting, lock picking, and other skills. Mix these rules with your own abilities, and you’ve got a recipe for a fantastic adventure! The adventurers who travel with us encounter hungry dragons, sage wizards, brutal trolls, rotting undead, as well as more mundane opponents. They also encounter aristocratic kings, backstabbing queens, honorable damsels, knights in distress, brutal amazons, fae, elven folk, and stout dwarves.
The IFGS is one of the oldest live action role-playing organizations in the United States and has recently celebrated it’s 35th Anniversary! Begun in 1981, the organization started as a group of friends getting together to play games in the mountains near Boulder, Colorado. As the membership spread to Dallas and other locations around the country, the need for a national organization became evident. Inspiration for the Society came from the Dream Park novels written by Larry Niven and Steven Barnes. With their permission we adopted the IFGS name from the organization in their Dream Park novels. Eventually, both Niven and Barnes would participate in several IFGS events.
