Game Book Detail

A Charmed Life

Sol Foster
Slot
Slot 7

Our group of young Wardens of the Grand Stair undertake a perilous quest. Luckily they have the infinite resources of the Stair to help them...

This game is intended for kids 7-14, with parents of kids on the younger side encouraged to join us as well.

What do players need to do to prepare for the game
This game is set in the Lords of Gossamer and Shadow multiverse using a simplified diceless rule system. Character creation consists of determining name, description, and one thing the PC is great at, two things they are good at, one thing they are bad at, and an idea for an adventure they'd like to have. The kids are from our Earth; if they choose to be good at things that don't exist here (like magic), then they will not start the game knowing them, but will be fast learners. All PCs will have the LoGaS Warden power that controls travel between worlds.

Contacting the GM ahead of time would be great, but probably isn't strictly necessary.

Black Chamber: the Keystone

Kristen Gibbs Nyht
Slot
Slot 7

The world is a fragile place. We don't like to think about it; we make plans for days, months, or years in advance, pretending the world will be unchanged when we get there. We have children, assuming they'll live in a world like the one we live in now. We plan for retirement, even when it's 30 years out.

But the world does change. And sometimes, it does so drastically, violently, and suddenly. This is a CASE NIGHTMARE GREEN scenario the likes of which the Chamber has never seen before - and that's even after what happened in Colorado...

========================================
Setting is inspired by the Laundry Series of novels by Charles Stross, which mix Lovecraftian horror, spy thrillers, and absurd workplace situations. The Laundry is the not-quite-official government agency dealing with occult threats in the UK; the Black Chamber serves a similar purpose but for the US. This is one of a series of games by this GM; the games are independent but past players may return to play their characters. No past experience in the games is needed, however you must have read at least one of the Laundry novels to have familiarity with the setting.

Darkest Night, Eagle's Flight : The Company 2019

Kris & Tara Kunkel
Slot
Slot 7

Last year another Gossamer was purged of deadly AquaVitae with such skill that many upon the Escalara speculate perhaps more than just Phoenix was saved by the members of Josiah's Company. This loose alliance of explorers, scientists, and adventurers seem well on the way to finally quelling the dangers that were released when the Fountain Rotunda disappeared from the Grand Stair. Join them to explore these mysteries and perhaps find those responsible hidden behind the furthest Doors.

A series? Yes. A campaign? No. While returning players are free to revisit their characters from previous Company games (or create new ones), no knowledge of the previous games is necessary, or even suggested.

What do players need to do to prepare for the game
50 point LoG&S characters. Email contact with GMs prior to con preferred. Returning players contact for advancement.

Riddles Upon Riddles

Bridgette Ruggles
Slot
Slot 7

You've walked through Hell with the Creepiest Cousin, met the multiverses' scariest Grandmas, and discovered that semantics are important after a deal with the wrong Queen.  The days at the Manor House are looking better and better. Who knew just how much you could miss being 'processed'?

The Answers have led to more questions, your elders are less than helpful, and the Daughters are still missing.

Now what?

Shadowpact: Day of Destiny

James Arnoldi
Slot
Slot 7

When hordes of renegade angels or demonic forces attack the Earth, even the Justice League is powerless against the magical forces. In times like that, an ancient pact made by sorcerers and mystical warriors calls upon them to band together and keep our world safe.

This game is part of a series of stand-alone adventures set in the mystical side of the DC Comics universe. Players will design their own version of a DC character or their own original character. The PCs are all magic-users or character imbued with powers by magic.

What do players need to do to prepare for the game
Players must contact the GM before the convention to design their characters.

ShadowWorld Mainline (Sunday Day)

Edwin Voskamp
Slot
Slot 7

ShadowWorld is a diceless roleplaying game based in our world, except that, under the facade of media, politics, political correctnes and 'reality' there is a ShadowWorld where strange things happen: psionic powers, ancient secrets, dark conspiracies that are hidden from or dismissed by the general public. The players are psionically gifted operators of a secret organization sent on a mission. Though an ongoing world setting, it is an episodic campaign: new players are welcome.

The real world in the current day, with a few changes (e.g. Quebec, Ontario the provinces east of it became a country and, with Cuba, Ecuador and Vanuatu, formed a Commonwealth). To the public there is more terrorist acts, more military action, and, recently, more weird events (e.g. Jupiter ignited into a star, astronomers claim we skipped ahead a day in Earth's orbit, Scotland got covered in ancient forests and physically became larger, the Ark of the Covenant was found).

CONTENT WARNING: ShadowWorld involves many adult themes, in particular, if you take (your) religion seriously, playing ShadowWorld likely is not for you.

Game will run late: I hope, and will work hard to, end by 5pm. It may run as late as 6pm. I hope to end the Mainline games at ACUS big.

What do players need to do to prepare for the game
If you don't have an existing character that you will play again, contact the GM by email (ambercon.com@voskamp.org) with at least a vague idea for an outline of a concept. You can play any character with regards to background, skills, etcetera, as long as your background makes you suitable to be recruited by a US-based organization. Your character will have one or more psionic powers, have some mystical nature, or both.

The Seven Guardians

Michael Kucharski
Slot
Slot 7

SEVEN GUARDIANS were set upon the holy mountain upon the PRIMAL PLANE to watch over the HOLY STAG as it is pursued by two WOLVES (and their brood of lesser wolves). Should the HOLY STAG ever be brought down the world, reality will end. The HOLY STAG has fled into the real world of light, shadow and time and the WOLVES have followed, and now the SEVEN GUARDIANS must act to save the HOLY STAG following it into the mundane world.

The Subways Of New York

East Side, West Side, all around the town
The tots sang "ring-a-rosie," "London Bridge is falling down"
Boys and girls together, me and Mamie O'Rourke
Tripped the light fantastic in the subways of New York

The year is 1977. You are part of the masses that inhabit New York City. Everyday you go to work and home and probably most other places around the city using the subway system. One of the many unremarkable people who take those trains everyday. Until today. And then the lights went out.

This is a game is very loosely based on a book, which I don’t want to give away. It shouldn’t be as boring as it sounds, but we have to start somewhere. If the players enjoy it enough to want to continue, I may turn it into a series game or campaign.

What do players need to do to prepare for the game
Will send details for character creation for those who sign up. This will be a diceless game. Teen friendly.
