Shadowworld: Crime Leagues

Robert Haight
Slot 6 - Sat 7pm-12am - 5 hours

This serial campaign is set on Earth in the 1950s, an alternate timeline where psionics exist and most psionics for various reasons turn to a life of crime. Characters are drawn into a newly established criminal syndicate to use their wits, cunning, powers and brute force in the transformational years where old world orders are crumbling with money and power to be had in plenty for those who can take it. Note: This game has the potential to turn historic and religious events upside-down. Players who have difficulty separating their personal cultural or religious beliefs from those of their characters may find elements of this game disturbing and may wish to look elsewhere.More ...

What do players need to do to prepare for the game
GM will contact players before the game, but because GM tries not to be a hypocrite and is terrible at getting characters done before a con, GM can not hold it against you if you do the same....

Striding Sunset

Eric Todd
Slot 7 - Sun 11am-5pm - 6 hours

World War Z. The Walking Dead. In the days and years before, we lapped up these stories of the apocalypse, of the end of society, of zombies. It was as if on some level the world knew what was coming. Like we were trying to prepare ourselves for the horror that lay before us. So when it finally happened, it was a dream we'd summoned into reality. A nightmare made flesh. And yet, there was so much we failed to imagine. So much pain and beauty only a survivor could know.

What do players need to do to prepare for the game
This is an experimental, diceless story-game. All game concepts and rules will be explained at the beginning of the session and characters will be created on the spot.

1777: Valley Forge

James Arnoldi
Slot 2 - Fri 9am-1pm - 4 hours

After defeat in Philadelphia, a cabal of Continental Officers have started pushing to have Washington replaced as Commander of the Army. You've always been loyal to the General, but it is easy to understand why many have been deserting. You've been marching for days and many have had their shoes worn away to nothing. At least you hear that you will be stopping marching soon as the army will make camp. Winter is coming.

In this game, the players will play a fictional group given a special mission by General Washington during some of the darkest hours of the American War for Independence. This is a historical scenario. There are no wizards or magical elements.

Pregenerated characters will be provided.

Fatal Flaws and Faustian Flim-Flam

John Czarnota
Slot 4 - Fri 8pm-12am - 4 hours

You are a complex person really. Good, but flawed. You have your own agenda, but mostly it keeps you social. Still, someone knows your weakness and has offered that one thing you just can't resist. - Can "happily ever after" even exist with a title like this?

Modern day... Normal(ish) world. Full, detailed pregens will be provided. Collectively these characters and backgrounds will inter-relate and complicate. Accent on deep character motivations and interactions.

What do players need to do to prepare for the game
Pregens will be provided. Familiarize yourself with yours and be ready to make it your own. (minimal prep required, but some reading and forethought)

Guardians of Chaos and Amber

Craig Johnson
Slot 1 - Thu 7pm-12am - 5 hours

Life has sucked... It was a crappy year...
First you were abducted from your home and had to escape. Then you ended up arrested by these jackboot goons who framed you and sent you to a nasty prison in the centre of the dimensions where you slaved for benefit of the Tree.
Now - they need you. They all need you!
Seems that one of your parents was a Lord of Creation, a Prince of Amber or Chaos and you have suppressed powers. You are a good guy, sort of, well, misunderstood.
Seems that Mandor and Fiona, your two Wardens have come around offering you a Pardon from their bosses to stop some very bad dude and his army of thugs from taking everything over. They are worse than Mandor and Fiona!
Now power has shifted - and you are ready to become with your fellow prisoners - the Guardians of Chaos and Amber.
The Universes will just not be the same again!

What do players need to do to prepare for the game
Characters have a wide range of options and backgrounds. Some character ideas could get darker and there could be some humour. This is parallel to but different than the Suicide Squad that ran at ACNW. Please contact the GM Craig - calj at mts.net

My room.
Rae H. Williams
Slot 6 - Sat 7pm-12am - 5 hours

Another dinner in Amber, that the family is “asked” to attend.  Random is king and he and Vialle are celebrating their anniversary.  There will be dignitaries from Chaos and some others attending as well.  But when certain people don’t show and can’t be contacted, the party takes on a different tone.

Random is king, but the Merlin books haven't happened yet.

This was run as part of the Shakespeare game at AmberCom, and had such a strong result, I’m running it as a one shot here, so Shakespeare won’t show up.
It was also run as a one shot at Amber Central 2016.

What do players need to do to prepare for the game
Children of the elders and Chaosians with strong ties are welcome.  150 point characters, but the points don't really matter. Shared universe.

Flight of the Red Court Refugees

James Holman
Slot 6 - Sat 7pm-12am - 5 hours

Something is terribly wrong. All of the masters have been destroyed by some powerful spell. Even some of the other half bloods died. But you have survived - either you were too weak, or too new to the blood.

The call of the blood was too strong, and you have recently killed and fed for the first time completing your transformation into full members of the Red Court, maybe the last on Earth. The other supernaturals are hunting you, looking to erase your kind forever.

Then you had the dream. One of the Nobles somehow survived the cataclysm and is calling you to a new center of power - Prague in the Czech Republic. You start by traveling to Dallas, Texas where you find several other survivors.

Now you just have to figure out how to avoid the Wardens, the White Court, and all the other magical creatures out to kill you...

What do players need to do to prepare for the game
Contact the GM with character concept. The GM will generate the character stats from that input. Then show up at the game. :)
