    Slot 1


    Game 1: Horse Shoes & Hand Grenades
    Serenity RPG
    FCWesel, private room
    The crew of the Symphony have been in some tight spots to say the least. They have escaped the grasping clutches of Reavers and the Alliance as well as a few other problems, including one Mr. Niska. But nothing—and I do mean nothing—so "interestin' a time" has been had that a small blind child, a seeing-eye-monkey and a 500 year old music disk from Earth-That-Was of someone called "The King" are about to give them.

    Rules taught while we play. Characters WILL be provided by me. Be on time and ready for fun. (Fun will be provided by all of us.) Check out my Serenity message board: http://wavesintheblack.aimoo.com/.

    Game 2: Escape Initiative
    Buffy RPG
    Ninjacat
    Congratulations. You are one of the Few, the Proud... no, not the Marines. You're a part of Uncle Sam's military, but your job is a bit more covert than being an average leatherneck. You are part of the Initiative. The things that go bump in the night are Hostile Sub-Terrestrials, and it's your job to take care of them, quietly, to prevent the public from panicking. The Initiative has a new underground compound in beautiful lakeside Cleveland, Ohio—where HST activity has seen an alarming increase of late. Both the field Commandos and the lab Techs have been busy trying to keep up, and one night, while you were off-shift, Something Happened...

    A fast-paced game in the spirit of both BtVS/AtS and Resident Evil. Rules will be taught (Unisystem is very easy to use and simple to learn) and characters provided. For 6-8 players (planning on six, but walk-ins and guests will be welcomed, system is fast & easy.

    Game 3: Accursed City #1
    Mutants & Masterminds 2e
    Reidzilla, table by the door
    Verde city was once a nice place, but not anymore. It’s amazing how fast a large city can go to hell. Something happened years ago. Ask around and anyone will tell you. Not that they have a clue as to what happened. It just did.

    Some people think it was about the same time as when the supers started appearing, here and there around the world. Others say it was after the Bjord comet passed so close the Earth. No one really knows or, at least, nobody who cares to tell.

    Anyways, crime and corruption reigns supreme now. The few parts of the city government that aren’t on the take try to clean up the place, but it never works. They just don’t have enough juice. Most citizens stay indoors after dark and hope that no one comes calling. Those that do brave the night, they roll dice with the devil every step they take. Fact is that there is only one thing stopping corruption in this city from devouring all the innocent people who still live here. Us.

    We call ourselves the Nightwalkers and we use our gifts to fight crime, clean up the streets, and generally kick corruption in the butt. So, you game to join? Or are you going to let your talents rot while you listen the city eating itself alive.

    Join the Nightwalkers as they begin the fight for justice in the once fair Verde city. Power Level 8 Characters will be provided and rules will be taught. If you want to create your own character, contact me at sales@dicegoblins.com after Oct 1. For 6 players.

    Game 6: Southern Exposure
    Call of Cthulhu d20
    Joshua Dyal
    During the long, dark winter, most of the Antarctic research stations shut down to no more than a skeleton crew, checking in periodically via radio. The last transmission from the Vostok Research Station was garbled, but the message is staggering. Evidence of pre-human intelligent life discovered deep under the ice on the icebound shores of subterranean Lake Vostok.

    Now they are 48 hours past due for their latest radio check-in. Intelligence reports that a Russian rescue team is being assembled. Our administration decides that is unacceptable; you will be part of a hastily assembled emergency team sent to Antarctica to get there first and evaluate what happened...

    Characters will be created at the table.

    A low-level D&D3.5 adventure with some d20 rule tweaks. Characters will be provided. Suitable for all ages.

    Arcana Unearthed/D&D3.5
    William Ronald
    A band of heroes find that they suddenly have common cause with their hated enemies, members of a hobgoblin nation, and must help them overcome a common foe. Can your characters tell friend from foe, and find an ancient weapon to use against your common enemies? A Dungeons & Dragons/Arcana Unearthed adventure featuring roleplaying, intrigue, and combat for 9th level characters. Pre-generated characters using both the AU and D&D 3.5 rules, although I am willing to consider requests. No previous knowledge of AU is required, and rules will be taught as needed.

    GM approval of player sign-ups required.

    D&D3.5/Iron Kingdoms
    TracerBullet42
    It's hard working at the Iron Kingdoms biggest and best amusement park, "Great Cygnar." As the time of the annual Festival of Fright draws near, you can't help but feel that something foul is afoot, and that little old man who dances so wildy must surely have something to do with it.

    Come join this steam-powered adventure for 6 players (characters provided) who will battle the strange, the unusual, and the over-priced. No experience necessary. Rules can be taught as we play.

    Harry Potter and the Flagrant Violation of copyright? Oh hot damn, I'm all over that.

    Sign me up for slot one game 6 cthulhu, and for the aformentioned HP game. While you're at it, sign me up for breakfast.

    I'm excited about this. I don't get to game nearly enough here down at school. Stupid homework and drunken debauchery getting in the way. Well. Mostly the first one, unfortunately.
