Firefly: Back to Square One

Kristen Gibbs Nyht
Slot
Slot 3

"The world is falling apart around us, and you're down here. I'm not surprised."
Man doesn't stop woodworking. "Yup."
"Well I have a package for you."
Man stops, and looks at the package. He stops, and reaches out to take it, hand shaking just slightly.

This is a story of a ship and its crew, a ragtag group formed over time; they have all sorts of reasons for being on the ship and not where they came from. But you can only run so far from your history before it has a way of catching up with you, no matter how hard you try to always keep your face toward the sunshine.

Essentially, cowboys in space, the setting is from Firefly, the TV show and movie of the same name. *Please* do not sign up for this game unless you are familiar with one or the other.

What do players need to do to prepare for the game
Characters will be made before the con using the GM's simple Amber-like system. If characters are not before the con, one will be made for you... but you won't like it.

Guardians of Chaos and Amber in Trouble! (Again)

Craig Johnson
Slot
Slot 3

Another year has gone by and there has been so many ungrateful people to save...
You get no respect. You should be on par as an Amber Prince or Chaos Lord - it is your right by birth and you have earned it. More than those Court Flunkies have done.
Now - they need you. Again! They all need you!
Yes, 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. Big deal.
Seems that Mandor and Fiona are at it again and need your help. With people like them, it's easy to see why there is a desire for so many in Shadow to obliterate Chaos and Amber.
Now power is shifting - your role is grudgingly recognized as the Guardians of Chaos and Amber, not just the Suicide Squad out of Tartarus or its Juvenile Hall equivalent.
The Universes is not going be the same again!

Magical Customs

Eleanor Todd, Remmington Todd, April Todd
Slot
Slot 3

U.A. Magical Customs and Immigration Service (MCIS) administers the nation's lawful immigration system as it pertains to magical entities and their dimensions of origin, safeguarding its integrity and promise by efficiently and fairly adjudicating requests for immigration benefits while protecting Americans, securing the homeland, and honoring our values.

U.A. MCIS is the nation’s largest paranormal law enforcement organization, charged with keeping problematic entities, their agents and their weapons out of United America while facilitating lawful inter-dimensional travel and trade. The staff of MCIS are responsible for enforcing hundreds of U.A. laws and regulations. On a typical day, MCIS welcomes more than ten thousand entities, screens more than 200 pocket dimensions, arrests numerous entities, and seizes nearly 6 tons of illicit magics.

Due to an increase of incoming volume and range, an additional 86 ports of entry opened in 2018, including your newly assigned duty station in Livonia, Michigan.

What do players need to do to prepare for the game
This is a freeform LARP, wherein you play an MCIS agent responsible for inspection of entrance papers of inter-dimensional entities and deciding which entities will or will not be allowed to enter.

The game explores the intersection of the magical and the mundane, the whimsical and the bureaucratic. It includes light satire of US immigration policy, but is not focused thereon. For example, the players are citizens of the fictional country “United America”, which includes the real world countries of Canada, Mexico and the United States.

No character pre-creation or other preparation is required, but business or business-casual attire for costuming is suggested.

James Arnoldi
Slot
Slot 3

This is the Dreaming City; a sprawling metropolis and home to over a million humans, elves, or other faerie creatures. Creatures from all over Faerie and the mortal realms have come to call this city home. When you joined the police department, you took the oath to serve and protect this city. It isn't always going to be easy. In fact, there are going to be times when you're going to wonder if you can take it another day. That is when you need to remember. It don't matter if you're an elf, a satyr, a pooka, or a human. You joined a brotherhood. We are going to....we have to be there for each other because no one else will understand what you deal with out there on the mean streets. Now, get out there. Do good. Bring honor to this precinct. Most importantly.... be careful out there.

PCs will play various roles in a precinct of the city of Murias, dealing with crime in a city where things tend to get a little weird. Players can create their own cops by email using the KEY RPG rules which will be provided or pregens will be available.

What do players need to do to prepare for the game
The GM will contact the players before the con. If you want to create your own character, character creation must be finished at least one week before the con.

David A. McCreless and Kit Kindred
Slot
Slot 3

For over two thousand years, Lord Drake has taken up arms against what is unjust. Under his flag, farmers discover themselves to be heroes, priests become legends, and mercenaries find their honor, no matter how deeply it was buried.

You ride for Justice. You are a Knight and your heart knows passion for what is Right. The Grand Stair is Infinite. No band of Knights, not even commanded by Drake, can stand against all the Darkness that may pour out of that Infinite wondrous design. What matters is that someone will make that stand. See to your gear, the call has gone out again. We ride!

The Doormen have discovered forces of Lord Bastiano's Ascendancy aiding pirates.
