Karen runs the local game store where Eric and his friends have gathered every week for years to play their favorite tabletop roleplaying game. His childhood friends Luke (the paladin) and Valarie (the ranger), the group’s strategist and a regular tabletop game fanatic Ken (the wizard), and his little sister Sarah (the fighter) begin their next adventure in Vaelrun while Eric’s wife, Emily, who used to play the group’s druid, is pregnant and out “attending her grove”. Everything starts to change when Brandon, Valerie’s new boyfriend, joins the group. While these friends can’t seem to pull themselves away long enough to handle their real lives, Karen watches on and wishes for an escape. Tabletop explores the way we use games to disconnect from our own realities by following the weekly fantasy adventures of these five friends.
