Larp: Higher Powers: Issue #25: Champagne Supernova

“Well, my friends, we’ve reached a new milestone. Six years of research into the Paradigm Event and the UN and Tetrasoft have finally seen the fruits of our labor. We all know whatever caused all those people to get super powers came from space but we are still in the dark as to how or why. Intelligent design? Random chance? My money’s on the latter but I can’t prove it… yet. Regardless, we are having a party in Russia’s Special Astrophysical Observatory where the majority of the research on the Paradigm Event’s origins has been conducted, spearheaded by the UNESCO and Tetrasoft Research and Development Team of course. We will have important businessmen, high ranking officials and parahumans both affiliated with international organisations and freelance, all coming to see what we have to say about how this all started. It’s a time of celebration and opportunity, my fellow scientists, and I hope we can make the most of it.”

RPG: Unwanted Attentions

The title of this game doesn’t tell you much, and neither does the system, so you glance down to the blurb to try and make sense of it. Then you realize your actions are being narrated by a soothing voice on the radio, and an eerie sense of deja vu washes over you; like the feeling of seeing a person in their twenties that reminds you of the you that you could have been. If only you’d made other choices. If only those choices had felt fair. If only you could have rolled some dice and known the odds were stacked in your favour.

Before you’ve really thought about it, you’re reaching for your wallet.

Welcome to Night Vale.

RPG – Titansgrave: Gateway to the spires 

You police this city. Vorakis is  the last city before the broken spire mountans and the ruins of the saurian empire. You’ve seen it all or at least you thought you had. but you haven’t seen anything like this. it isn’t just the grizzly nature of the murders. Its the fear on the streets, The way it seeps from the pores of the city to bathe the populace in terror. This isn’t bad it’s evil. It’s almost like the prophet Dhwawn is coming back somehow and everyone can feel it in their bones.
You have to stop these murders at any cost if only to keep the lady from changing into the lord…because if that happens there won’t be a sense of wandering dread. Rivers of blood will run in the streets to wash the murderer away.

RPG: Ride along

As a roaming pack of bikers you’re often asked to run errands between Septs. But when the Alpha of the Sept of the Green in New York calls you to attend a meeting, you know it’s going to be a bigger errand than usual. And you’re not disappointed. The Bone Gnawers have successfully founded a new Caern in Freehold and whatever it is you’re delivering, it’s important. It may be a good way to get a favour or two from some influential figures, and it sounds easy enough.

But is anything ever easy?

Sunday Evening 7pm – 10pm

Larp: Star Wars, Tales of The Old Republic, The Mandalorian Wars.

The Old Republic has been living in a golden age of peace, or at least it mostly was right up until the Mandalorians started to tear through the Outer Rim. Local Resistance has been piecemeal and the juggernaut that is the Mandalorian offensive seems unstoppable. The Senate, Beacon of Democracy that it is, is completely bound up in bureaucracy and completely incapable of action. But you are not the senate, you are more than the water pump politicians sent off to Coruscant, and you will do everything you can to stop the destruction of the Republic.

RPG – Supernatural: Family Ties – With a Side of Butter

Sometimes adventures come from the most unlikely of places.  Squamport island, Maine is a remote provider of seafood and celebrates this bounty with a Lobster festival every September. One of the highlights of the festival is the all you can eat lobster challenge.  Franko has been dared by Ollie and Bran to take part in this event.  So you are on your way to Maine to enjoy some time off and to potentially watch Franko make himself sick.  So put on your bibs, melt that butter and get your shell crackers ready! Oh, did you really think you were going to have a quiet vacation? They say that Lobsters are immortal and when left to roam free continue to age and grow in size. Well they have taken offense to the reaping of their kin and are looking for a bit of payback for the generations consumed. Congratulations you and the town are now on the menu. All the best!

RPG: Same Bat Time, Same Bat Channel

 

You can run but you can’t hide from the Batman.

No matter what you do, he can’t be stopped, can’t be killed, can’t be reasoned with.

You had him trapped once, everyone does, nearly killed him too, but he escaped moments before it was too late. He always does, and foils your plans.
The joker has broken you out of prison once again, but this time will be different.
He can’t be everywhere at once. If you work together, this time you might actually accomplish something. Or at least that’s what you’ll tell the others.

RPG: The Last Will and Testament of Dr. Ramsey St. John.

“Dear Friends,

It is with great sadness that you are to receive this. Our dear friend and cousin, Dr. Ainsley Marcus Ramsay St.John, has taken ill with a terrible case of consumption. He fears that his life is soon to draw to a close, and so calls together his closest friends and family for a final meal before he draws his last, and to discuss the execution of his will, while he is in a fit state to do so – the date of this event will be the 30th of October.

Please dress accordingly for a feast which Dr. Ramsay St.John happily lays at his guests’ feet. We hope to see you then, for an evening that we guarantee will not be unpleasant.

Best Regards,
Martha McCardle,
Head Maid and Steward”
