About us

Athenaes Siegel was founded 1985 in Vienna, with the main function to popularize, promote and play pen and paper role-playing games.

For this purpose regularly club meetings take place, where role-playing games are played. We are playing „The Dark Eye“, "Dungeons & Dragons", „Shadowrun“ and many other systems, some of them little-known and some of them old-established.

Furthermore we support our members by maintaining a library, which allows them to play different systems without buying every rulebook by their own. Our rounds find together either beforehand or directly at the club meetings - depending on the game master. To join the club meetings simple come around and participate. If you want to play along at the very first evening, and you don’t have a figure - or like role-players call it, a character - we recommend raising your hand in the forum in advance. Thereby we can sort out your interests and prepare ourselves.

Our association is also present at many different role playing events in Austria to introduce our hobby to the public and to arouse interest.

Athenaes Siegel - Roleplaying Club Logo

Our logo shows Minerva (also known as Athene or Athena), the goddess of wisdom, strategy, warfare and art.

She is holding the most important tools of roleplayers. A die (represented here as a 20-sided die) and a pencil.

Club history:

Athenaes Siegel is the oldest roleplaying club in austria.

Bedeutende Ereignisse in der Vereinsgeschichte


The first role-playing evenings take place in Café Zartl. In the same year we moved to the restaurant Laurin.


The club is founded as Athenaes Schwadron. Since the term squadron has a military and unpleasant connotation for many members, the name was changed shortly afterwards to Athenaes Siegel

The Laurin's tenant gives up the restaurant and opens the Reginas restaurant in the 15th district. The club, which now has a friendly relationship with the owner, has also moved.

The club is celebrating its 20th anniversary and is helping to found the Fantasy Gaming Council.


The Reginas restaurant will be closed and the club will have to look for a new club location. The Café Sperlhof is temporarily used as an alternative restaurant. Due to its layout, it is not suitable as a permanent solution.


The Café Goldengel in the 3rd district will be our new club location.


The club acquires the web domain www.athenaes-siegel.at.

The club is celebrating its 25th anniversary.


Due to the new tobacco law, we have to clear the back room of the Cafe Goldengel, which has been converted into a smoking area.

We tried for some time to come to terms with the new circumstances, but in the end we had to realize that we would have to relocate at some point.


After we agreed with the WoW/Keepers to use their club rooms, we can finally move into our new club premises.


The club is celebrating its 30th anniversary.


We got a stand for the first time at the Vienna Comic Con and are presenting our club there.
