EPOCH

Mass Destruction

Facilitator: 
Dale

It is 2003; the eve of war. The United States has accused Iraq of secretly conducting a programme to produce weapons of mass destruction, and the world watches as the final 48 hour deadline for the surrender of Saddam Hussein and his sons approaches. A small group of journalists will be in the vanguard of the invasion. Eager to substantiate its claims to the press, the U.S. military plans to reveal one of Saddam’s secret weapons facilities, deep in the Iraqi desert. What they find, however, may unleash an ancient evil onto the world, causing massive destruction and suffering on a scale far greater than anyone had imagined…

Its the year 2150 and hungry humanity has stretched out into the solar system to find the resources it desperately needs. Three corporations compete violently for lucrative mining rights on Mars, found to be rich with gold and uranium, both in short supply everywhere else.

Ascend Corporation mining survey 242 has gone silent after reporting the largest deposit of gold ever found on the red planet. An elite crisis team is dispatched to rescue any survivors and secure the site before a giant planetary dust storm buries them forever.

Death In The Streets

Facilitator: 
Alasdair Sinclair

Prohibition was the best thing that ever happened to you. You used to be the lowest scum on the streets, now you’re welcome at every fancy place in town. Millionaires know your name, and your phone number. Gin, whisky, champagne are the lubricants of high class life: your life. You were a big man about the towns, and had the respect of all your friends.

Now when you drive through the streets it’s with a shotgun on your lap, and when the mists descend you don’t go out at all if you’re smart. It ain’t the law. You’ve got him beat. It’s something else. Something that ain’t no respecter of authority, and ain’t too worried by bullets and armoured glass neither.

Some say it’s the devil come for his share. You say: fuck him. This is your town.

Pleasures of the Flesh

Facilitator: 
Alasdair Sinclair

Your voyage on the Sea Princess is a dream come true: at sea in a 5-star floating hotel. Every luxury known to mankind is readily available aboard this floating city. Food, wine, sex, even drugs. On the High Seas you are beyond the reach of the law, perhaps beyond the reach of morality. You are also beyond its help. As you indulge your desires and shed your inhibitions your vices seem virtues and your virtues are commonplace. It is a dream life, a dream that could be yours forever. When offered the choice of eternal pleasure, at the price of a moment’s suffering, who will say no?

Fever Pitch

It’s the hottest summer on record. People are doing everything they can to beat the heat, but with regular brown-outs interrupting the electricity supply and a forecast for soaring temperatures ahead, many people are short on sleep, and tempers are beginning to fray. The city is a tinderbox and just one spark will set off a chain reaction of terrifying events.
