    Slot 1: Morning



    Morning Game 1: Mr. Johnson Must Pay
    Don't Rest Your Head, ekb
    [imager]http://th08.deviantart.net/fs6/300W/i/2005/117/0/9/Shadowrun_Cover_by_Manarama.jpg[/imager]
    Here's the deal, chummers—Mr. Johnson has screwed all of us, somehow, someway. So somehow, someway... Mr. Johnson must pay.

    System: Don't Rest Your Head, with some custom hacking to fit it into Shadowrun's 'Verse. Rules system changes in a nutshell: Madness Talents get split into Edge and Cyber/Magic Talents. The initial questions change a bit, but otherwise it's DRYH by the book. View rules modification document

    Dice: DRYH calls for a special blend of colored d6s. I'll provide, if you don't have 3 white, 6 Red and 6 Black for yourself. If either doesn't fit your fancy, I'm sure you can find such dice for sale in the other room.

    Age Appropriateness: PG/PG13. The central story is about doing not-very-nice things to Mr Johnson...

    Familiarity with System: none needed.

    Familiarity with Setting: a tiny bit is helpful. But not much more than is on the wikipedia page, really.

    Pregens: none. We'll be doing chargen at the table by answering some simple questions and then assigning a few things based on those answers. Really, it only takes about 5 minutes. Okay, 8 if people are futzing about.

    Morning Game 2: Descent: Journeys in the Dark
    Descent, Mark, private room

    Across the land, courageous heroes delve into shadowed dungeons, journey to lost cities, and explore forgotten ruins. In the darkest corners of the world, these heroes confront deadly and terrifying monsters, including Skeletons, Hell Hounds, Giants, Demons, and Dragons. For those few who survive, the rewards are many. Victorious heroes return from the treacherous dungeons with ancient magics, bags of gold, and powerful weapons and artifacts.

    In Descent: Journeys in the Dark, you play one of these daring adventurers. Armed with mighty weapons and powerful abilities, you venture into the dungeon to battle monsters, escape deadly traps, discover lost treasures, and ultimately, confront and defeat the evil masters that dwell in the hidden places. Can you survive the dark?

    Descent: Journeys in the Dark is a game of dungeon-crawling adventure for 5 players. We might manage to play two or three scenarios!

    Morning Game 3: Sanctuary
    Unhallowed Metropolis, Sir Brennen
    [imager]http://home.comcast.net/~joemoon5/UnMet/UnMetCover.jpg[/imager]
    Through contacts with upscale connections, you've learned that some ponce from Hyde Park is seeking individuals to act as security at his upcoming soirée. The promise of a pound sterling apiece was enticing, but for a bunch of East End scratters, the free buffet sealed the deal. So off you go, through the stench of the sooty smog and beneath the hum of the Tesla towers, toward old Doc Johnson's pub, to sign up for the easiest money you've made in a fortnight...

    Set two-hundred years after the advent of a zombie Plague, Unhallowed Metropolis is an apocalyptic Neo-Victorian dystopia written by Jason Soles and Nicole Vega. Inspired by the works of Mary Shelley, Edgar Allen Poe, and Robert Louis Stevenson, and painstakingly researched by the authors, Unhallowed Metropolis provides a rich role-playing experience steeped in alchemy, mad science, and undeath.

    Experience: None (Published intro scenario)
    Ages: T+ for zombie gore and morally questionable heroes
    Pregens: Yes

    The town of Moonstair is held under the sway of a strange mechanical construct left behind by its master. The mechanical beast sets the town ablaze while replaying its master's message over and over. A group of townsfolk have been taken through a strange grey portal, their return only guaranteed by handing over the “uncanny child” Susana.

    This is a sequel to the Gameday XXIII event "An Uncanny Child." You are not required to have played in the previous installment. Bring your own 2nd-level Character Builder legal character.

    Given the horror elements of the setting, consider this event rated PG-13 in terms of age-appropriateness.

    Our heroes are back in action, this time on a journey of peril and exploration to the jungles of Chult. Can they find a powerful artifact in a temple that is only rumored to exist, or will this quest into the unknown be their last?

    19th level 4e D&D fun with pre-generated characters provided. Some 4e experience is helpful, but beginners are of course welcome. Amuse me and the table enough with your portrayal of your character, and you'll win a cheap prize from the DM.

    Afternoon Game 2: Operation: First Breach
    Star Wars Saga Edition, Paul_Klein
    [imager]http://www.wizards.com/global/images/starwars_article_rpgsagaed_pic1_en.jpg[/imager]
    A military adventure set during the heart of the Clone Wars.
    If you own Galaxy at War... don't read the last chapter.

    Pregens can be provided, but feel free to make your own character using any of the published Star Wars Saga supplements. No restrictions on character creation. Pilot characters (unfortunately) won’t figure too much in this adventure. 32 point buy. As you are on the side of the Republic, probably think about either a Jedi or a military-type (clones too!). Characters are 4th level.
    Prior experience is great, but unnecessary.
    Suitable for all ages.

    One player will randomly “win” their choice of a brand new Star Wars Saga Core Rulebook (2nd printing with errata incorporated), the Ennie Award-winning Clone Wars Campaign Guide, or the newly-released Galaxy at War supplement (the book from which this adventure is derived). Purchased from Games Plus, on me.

    Afternoon Game 3: And On the Seventh Night...
    Supernatural, Ninjacat
    [imager]http://www.margaretweis.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2009/08/SNRPGcoversmall.jpg[/imager]
    Las Vegas is known as the City of Lights, but you know there's more than a little darkness in a place whose other name is Sin City. There may be a pattern forming in the Southwest; people die in LA everyday, that's just life. But what are the odds of an overpass collapsing and killing nearly 100 people and injuring 50 more, and a gas main exploding the next day, killing almost 500 people—both at exactly seven pm?

    Whatever it is may have moved on to Las Vegas: seven gruesome accidents, all on the same day, roughly on the hour from one to seven pm...and Ash's research indicates there may be other related "coincidences" throughout the region. Whatever's going on, it's definitely big if it's going from one metropolis to the next, and if it's heading east across the country...

    And On the Seventh Night... is a Cortex RPG in the setting of the CW's Supernatural television show. No familiarity with the system or show is required, but it could prove useful. The only thing you really need to know is that the supernatural is real: ghosts and demons, hauntings and possessions; all real. And some of those who know about it fight back, Saving People, Hunting Things...

    Afternoon Game 4: Mercury & Intuition
    Triune, WJMacGuffin
    [imager]http://www.enworld.org/forum/attachments/general-rpg-discussion/41751d1256092212-planning-enworld-chicago-gameday-24-saturday-november-14th-triune-logo-1.jpg[/imager]
    Three European Union officials are dead. Each was shot in the head, but forensics cannot find the bullet, and local police have no suspects. To make it worse, a virus corrupted their backups and they cannot be recorporated—they are really dead. All three were pivotal to an upcoming vote on some anti-religion legislation. Faith-based terrorism is suspected but has not been confirmed, which is why we were given this case.

    Your job is to investigate the three assassinations; figure out how they were done; figure out where this virus is coming from; arrest the people responsible for both; and do it within 48 hours, before the vote on the legislation. We will not let religious terrorists dictate our laws!

    TRIUNE is a roleplaying game combining real religions, science fiction, and detective work. Humanity opened gates to Heaven and Hell, and now the faithful can use prayers to alter reality. The government has made all religions illegal for fear of these powers, driving faiths underground. Players take roles as government agents investigating religious offenses. Of course, players are also secretly for one religion and have those prayer powers too. Will you work together with other PCs or will you stab them in the back? It's up to you.

    * Pregens will be provided.
    * Familiarity with the rules is not necessary.
    * Any age can play but, because the game uses real religious issues, maturity is required.
    * Quickstart rules in PDF format can be found at my website

    Afternoon Game 5: Going Down
    Reminiscence Error 404, Reidzilla

    Groggily, you awake to an annoying buzzing sound... It’s the elevator panel sounding an alarm because you are leaning on the Close Doors button.

    You feel like you have been asleep for days and you don’t quite remember who you are. It’s like bits and pieces of your memory have been shaken loose like a jigsaw puzzle tipped on its side. It feels like a few pieces that don’t belong have been forced to fit as well.

    Your dress shirt and slacks are soaked with spilled coffee, cold and damp.

    You are not alone in the elevator. The others look just as bad as you feel.

    Now something is banging on the doors trying to get in. It sounds… inhuman.


    Originally created for the Game Fu 4 RPG creation competition, Reminiscence Error 404 is a game set in a near future / cyberpunk world where everyone's memories are corrupted by a virus. Unlike the original competition rules, this event will be taking place during the Purge. Characters will be created at the table. No EXP or dice necessary, just be ready for a bit of indie fun.

    Afternoon Game 6: The Hunt
    The Pool, Tim C Koppang
    [imager]http://www.cosmosmagazine.com/files/imagecache/feature/files/20080314_sherlock_holmes.jpg[/imager]
    Two criminals. Two pursuers. Two very different goals.

    ---

    It's 19th century Europe.* You and your co-conspirator are on the run. You will have to rely on your wits and the kindness of those you meet (remember that news of your escape travels slowly). If you can make it to the coast, you'll have your freedom. Perhaps you can even clear your name along the way -- or perhaps that is asking too much.

    Meanwhile...

    A constable and an assistant. If you can catch those low-lifes, your career will take off. They have a two-day head start, but you're faster. It's not a question of if, but when. Is the case against them a sure thing? Of course not! But if everyone waited for a sure thing, the jails would be empty.

    ---

    Choose from one of four general character concepts and fill in the details before play. We'll create the crime, the chase, and the finale together as we play. Will the criminals escape? Are they innocent? We'll find out.

    If you would like to learn the system ahead of time (which isn't necessary), you can download a copy of the Pool for free from James West's website.


    * No steam-punk. Don't even think about it.

    Afternoon Game 7: The Face of Evil
    Iridium Light, HiterWelt, private room
    [imager]http://www.hinterwelt.com/images/Covers/ChevalierCover200.gif[/imager]
    The Valee de Tenebrae is threatened by an evil that Father Antonio diLombardo has described as "insidious". In his dispatch to King Charles he has begged for aid in rooting out an evil that has possessed his congregation. They have turned away from the one true God and root amongst the pagan ways once more. You must aid him in finding the source of this corruption or truly all will be lost.

    The system we will be using is Iridium Light and the setting is the Legends of Charlemagne mixed with a bit of 800 AD (my typical history/fantasy treatment of the age of Charlemagne). Characters will be pregenned and feel free to call dibs on one that catches your eye. They are:
    Erond the Dane : Northman turned knight of the Realm.
    Father Guillaume Di Genti : Priest of the Holy Roman Church and instrument of God on earth.
    Elaine Auf Rattisbonne : Secret practitioner of the forbidden magical arts and friend of the King. Also, the ward of Father Guillaume.
    Henri the Rat : Criminal caught while attempting to rob a church. This is his only chance at redemption.
    Theudemund : Knight of Charles, protector of the church, defender of the realm.

    I have yet to determine the 6th and would be happy to take requests. I will be posting the characters on my blog as I render them to PDF.
