Roleplaying at The Treehouse

Treehouse Worlds

Roleplaying games present a unique opportunity in gaming - a chance to tell stories collaboratively, and build worlds with friends and strangers alike. Treehouse Worlds is a series of regular events that provide games for would-be players, turning the cafe into whatever kind of world we imagine!

We're always running new games, from our flagship project Solken (see below) to various one-offs. Check out the event calendar for dates, see below for more details, and send any inquiries to worlds@treehousesheffield.com.

We also now offer custom roleplaying sessions with our expert Game Masters, suitable for both complete beginners and experienced players wanting to try something new. See below for more information.

Custom roleplaying sessions

If you fancy giving roleplaying a try but aren't quite sure how to get started, or if you've played roleplaying games before but want to broaden your horizons, our custom roleplaying sessions could be for you! Book a session with one of our expert Game Masters, who will run a game for you using a system and setting of your choosing, while explaining the rules as you go along as required. Check out the brochure below for more information (downloadable version here if needed).

Solken

Solken is a fantasy world created by The Treehouse, and the setting for our Dungeons & Dragons games. It's inspired by apocalyptic storytelling, Eastern European fairytales, and the art of Katie Ponder. Solken adventures run in six-part Seasons, every other Thursday. Sessions start at 6pm and last roughly 4 hours.

I found the world of Solken to be incredibly engaging and immersive. The GMs/writers created a real connection with the characters and the universe itself. Well done and massive thanks to all involved.

The sessions are aimed at roleplaying newcomers and D&D veterans alike, making use of our expert Dungeon Masters and great facilities. Playing through a Solken story also allows players to make their mark on a living world, one that changes and evolves over time.

Currently Solken is in its third Season, which is only open to existing players. In the future, we may re-run the first Season, so keep an eye out! For existing players the events calendar has the session dates.
