Lewisham Branch

Welcome to The RP Haven

We're the largest gaming role playing club in London, with branches in Lewisham (South East London) and Stratford. We play games ranging from the classic Dungeons and Dragons, to more recent publications, such as Star Wars: Edge of the Empire; or new age indie games like Fiasco and Apocalypse World. With at least half a dozen tables to choose from at each branch, you'll always find something to suit your gaming needs.

The Role Play Haven is a non-profit Community Interest Company (CIC), focused on delivering an excellent gaming experience, while raising money for charity. You can either run your own game, or take part in games with some of our award winning Games Masters.

We currently have two branches of The Role Play Haven and are looking into creating many more over the years. Our aim is to build a better community across the United Kingdom. Please select a branch, if you're unsure use the menu option "Select Your Branch" below.

What is Role Playing?

If you've never played a tabletop roleplaying game before, don't worry! We are more than happy to show you how to play and launch you into the wonderful world of roleplay! 

Your role is to play a character in a fantasy scenario created by your Games Master (GM). They will lead you through your adventure with detailed descriptions, scenarios and puzzles and will shape the world around you. 

Your Games Master will use a core set of rules, detailed in a rulebook. These provide the mechanics of the universe in which you are playing, enabling you to easily step into another world.

The objective is to allow YOU as a player to do what you want as your character within the story. YOU control your actions and YOU are the Hero or Heroine of the story... unless you are the Villain! YOU decide your fate.
