LARP: Mad-Winter Christmas

Facilitator: 
Sally Hayes

You are attending a mid-winter Christmas party with your in-laws. It’s August, you’re wearing a snowman jersey and you couldn’t work out if you were supposed to bring a present. How did they find crackers at this time of year? Did they steal the tree from someone’s back yard? Did … Did they record last years Christmas TV to play endlessly in the background? Time for a nice ten minute stint in the bathroom… Oh. Someone else had the same idea. Well then.

LARP: Glitch

Facilitator: 
Lee Patrick

Greetings, crew and passengers of the Starship Lethe. We regret to inform you that your cryogenics have failed, and you are now awake. We further regret to inform you that there has been a computer malfunction regarding your memories. Please proceed to the central computer terminal to retrieve your memories. Or someone else's memories. Frankly, at this point we're really not sure whose memories are whose, what's going on, or whose fault the whole thing is. You're just going to have to sort it out yourselves.

Glitch is a card-based LARP about memory, politics, and identity.

Oakwood Heights

Facilitator: 
Luke Walker

It is a grey and cold winter’s day in Detroit, as members of the public prosecutor’s office and police force shepherd the accused Franklin Mills around his crime scenes, located throughout the city. The objective is to attain clarity of what happened on that fateful day back in August, the motive behind the cruel murders, whether Franklin Mills really lost his memory and what happened to the missing boy.

This is a horror scenario, which contains dark and mature concepts, including murder, abuse and suicide. Players of a young age and those who do not wish to explore, or are sensitive to, such matters should not sign up. The scenario uses a Powered by the Apocalypse system, which has been altered to shift the narrative toward the GM and reinforce the horror themes.

This is a Monster Hunting game set just a stones throw away and right around now.

The Shrouded Moon of Tagata-V

Facilitator: 
Luke Walker

The moon of Tagata-V is shrouded by its many rings - rings that stories say are haunted. The first attempt to colonise the moon failed before it landed. The crew and passengers aboard the colony ship, Khonsu, simply vanished. The derelict now floats amid the rings like a tomb.

The second attempt successfully established the mining outpost of Izu. But the miners have been plagued by sinister events and a growing sense of dread. As vital supplies and travellers disappear without a trace, the situation has become critical. With the Stellar Amalgamate failing to respond to calls for aid, the colonists now seek salvation from those brave (or desperate) few who are prepared to risk death for reward and reputation.

This scenario is inspired by introductory adventures for D&D, though it is set in the space opera universe of Esper Genesis. It is suitable for all ages and experience. It uses the D&D5e rule set, though no prior experience with that system is required. There will also be a light use of miniatures and maps.

The Cats of Epeiros

Facilitator: 
Ivan Towlson

Wandering the seas on the way back from the Trojan War, a group of heroes find themselves on the island of Epeiros. The tiny kingdom is prosperous, happy – and a haven for hundreds or thousands of cats. It is said that if the cats were ever to leave the town of Epeiros, it would signal doom for the kingdom. But with what fate could the capricious gods possibly threaten such a place? What secrets do the unblinking eyes of the cats conceal? And, most important, what glory would accrue to the hero who could save Epeiros from its mysterious prophecy?

Agon is a game of Greek myth, in which you cooperate with your fellow heroes to succeed in a quest, while competing with them to determine who will take their place among the stars, and whose grave will be forgotten along with their deeds.

Some jobs sound like money for jam! Here you are, with an offer to kidnap someone who wants to be kidnapped!
