What have we been playing at the Sentry Box? May 7th – 13th

It has been a some what slower week for games this week for the staff with a fairly poor showing this week as aside from the regular RPGs from Gord playing 5th Edition D&D and Kris running his Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay session not a lot else was played…
