Larp: No Such Thing As A Free Lunch

“…don’t forget to tune in and join me on Saturday where I’ll be reporting live from the opening of Horizon’s newest community outreach program, Daily Bread! We’ll be getting our hands dirty in the Redmond barrens from 12 o clock Pacific, helping out those poor unfortunates who can’t help themselves. 

And hey, if you’re one of our regular barrens viewers, why not drop down in person? Because whoever said there’s no such thing as a free lunch, clearly hasn’t heard of Horizon.

Now here’s Tom with the weather”

Saturday Evening 7pm – 10pm

Larp: Crossroads

You thought that when the zombies came, you would be ready for them. Don’t tell me you haven’t thought about it. We all have at one point. We’ve all had those late night conversations, and we all thought we’d be one of those who survive.

But we didn’t know then, that surviving was only the beginning. The worst part, worse than the zombies was yet to come. The long winter, the food shortages, the rising tempers, those can be more dangerous than the zombies themselves.

Can you work together to survive the dead of winter?

RPG – Tropic Kill 4: Hollow Point Quarter

It takes a lot to make mercenaries like Dog Company do a job pro bono. Paying a madman with an 800 kiloton nuke, in exchange for erasing you and and an entire city off the map? That’ll put the Sultan of Kazarawad right at the top of Dog Company’s list for dirty deeds done dirt cheap.

When you’re a well armed and morally flexible mercenary company whose stock and trade is taking good money to do bad things, revenge is a dish best served hot from the business end of a gun barrel. But even that might not be enough to take down an absolute monarch of a police state. So it’s time to bring out the biggest guns, fastest cars, and add Insultan’ to Injury.

RPG: Fallen London; The Great Northern Expedition.

Thirty Years ago, London was stolen by bats. That has rather put a damper on Her Enduring Majesty’s imperial ambitions, and the few colonies the city has been able to build on the great unterzee beneath the surface of the Earth are rather beset on all sides by general ne’er do wells. It is because of this that the Foreign Office has commissioned you! Yes you, indeed! To take part in a great expedition into the uncharted North of the Unterzee and find new lands for the Empire to Civilise. Don’t worry about no one ever returning, Because you might! At the very least it’s better than risking being eaten by Tigers, Enslaved by Devils or Brutally murdered by Madmen, Anarchists or the Khanate.*

*The foreign office cannot guarantee that NORTH is preferable to any of these things.

RPG: Suffer The Little Children.

Ireland. 1965. The Taoiseach met his counterpart from the north this year. We entered the Eurovision. They’ve started saying Mass in English. That’s the one that matters to you, the one that affects life in St. Joseph’s Industrial School. Otherwise, nothing changes, here – the uniforms are still drab, the days are still long, and the brothers no less cruel. It’s a cold October, and you stood in the wind until your teeth chattered while they lowered James Fitzgibbon in the hard ground. There’ll be no talking back to Father Murphy now. Not while you can still hear Jimmy screaming at night.

RPG: Trauma Team

Most people think of Trauma Team as a handy, if expensive, get-out-of-death-free card.
But you know how much effort and skill is necessary to provide the service.

You could be making more money on the streets, as an edgerunner with no way to contact your employers.

Or be safer on the front lines, as a soldier dodging tanks and artillery.

But for whatever reason, you’re stuck here, dragging critically injured idiots out of firefights, bringing them back from the brink of death, and shipping them off to hospital.
