As a coordinated effort, Duat only has a presence within several games. We are naturally always looking to expand. If you're interested in learning more about our game credentialing, please read "The Houses of Duat" section of The Amduat, as we have a fairly in-depth process. Games we regularly schedule and coordinate play for winds up on our active list, while games we aren't so rigid with and take a more passive approach to playing is put onto our casual list. A third category exists: games we're looking into playing as a community, games we're seeking consensus on as part of our rigorous procedure, are listed on our considerations listing.
Of course, no gaming establishment can exist without the regular CAH game. I mean, let's be real: it's the best way to get to know everyone, plus it's so politically incorrect, it's practically a crime not to play.
Starting in June 2018, we've got a great mega campaign that's starting with Paradox Interactive's Crusader Kings II.
Dungeons and Dragons [dev]
Obviously we're a bunch of nerds, so playing D&D is pretty much expected, right? Well you wouldn't be wrong, as we boast multiple DM/GM's amongst our ranks, and we've got two regular campaigns currently active. Check out the calendar for more details and for when you can join us for prolific conquest and trepid horseplay.
PAYDAY 2 is an action-packed, four-player co-op shooter that once again lets gamers don the masks of the original PAYDAY crew - Dallas, Hoxton, Wolf and Chains - as they descend on Washington DC for an epic crime spree.
As free shooters go, Warframe's a strong contender. It's not too pay-to-win, and there are tons of cosmetic options available. The grind does get repetitive, but with enough new content coming out and planned by Digital Extremes, Warframe is a good contender for time destruction.
