[size=+1]Morning Game 2: Tip Top Bounty Hunting Agency[/size]
Star Wars Saga Ed., sw3333, Table TBD

An emergency on the Galactic Republic's prison ship Sentinel IV led to a prison break, and while most escapees were caught and dealt with, a few managed to elude recapture. Enter the Tip Top Bounty Hunting Agency. They're the best, and they've been hired to track down the two most dangerous prisoners. Their orders are to being them in, dead or alive. With a couple of names and a couple of leads, the agency members are on the case.

This is a Star Wars Saga edition game for 5 players. Pre-gen characters will be used. No experience in the game or the SW universe are mandatory, but both would be useful.​

[size=+1]Morning Game 3: Goblins[/size]
Savage Worlds, willowx, Table TBD

Life as a goblin is nasty, brutal, and short, much like goblins themselves. Now adventurers are coming into your caves to kill you and take your stuff! Seats for 6 players, youth friendly.​

[size=+1]Morning Game 4: Curtain Call[/size]
Supernatural, Ninjacat, Table C

As if the Crew didn't have enough to worry about with the Greek Pantheon meddling in their lives, they can't forget that the third Demon Lord of Hell is still out there, too. Asmodeus' plans seem to be moving towards some goal...a rowdy biker babe, a barmaid who's known to go hunting with her uncles, a vigilante ex-cop, an amorous Army Brat track runner, and a wise old junkyard owner have all been killed, torn up by "a wild animal"...
..Is Asmodeus siccing Hellhounds on people again? And this time it's a pretty clear calling out of the Crew; what's he up to now?

To find out, it looks like it's time for another RoadTrip.​

[size=+1]Morning Game 5: Big Trouble In Little Canyonside: Snakes on a Plane Redux has been CANCELED[/size]

[size=+1]Morning Game 6: Trollbabe[/size]
Trollbabe, Nev the Deranged, Table TBD
Adults Only

So, there are humans, and there are trolls. And then, there are trollbabes. You're one of those. Neither fully human, nor fully troll, you stride through the world like a force of nature, bringing change wherever you go. Also probably some violence, and probably also some magic. You're pretty good at both of those, it turns out.

Materials Provided,
No Experience Necessary​

[size=+1]Morning Game 7: The Saint-Germain Frame[/size]
Grimoire, ekb, Table TBD

The "Man who never dies" has somehow died. Murder, it seems. You're the prime suspects...

4 players (all ages), no experience necessary, pregens provided (with minor tweaking of stats at the table). Grimoire is a tarot-based RPG system, but the players in this event need nothing besides the occasional pencil and odd scrap of paper to pass notes with. A playful curiosity is helpful.

* Casanova, infamous Italian rake
* Benjamin Franklin, "American" statesman and Master Mason
* Martin de Pasquale, Rosicrucian voodoo master and Saint-Germain's chief rival
* Voltaire, playwright and proto-goth entertainment superstar
* Anton Careme, architectural pastry-mancer
* Madame du Pompadour, Courtesan & His Majesty's finest swordswoman - TAKEN!
* Othar Tryggvaasen, gentleman adventurer!
* Baron Munchausen, ... well, what needs to be said of the Baron?

[size=+1]Morning Game 8: Orbital Decay[/size]
GURPS Transhuman Space, buzz, Table TBD
Adults Only

Vandegrift Station, a top-secret orbital research lab, has suddenly stopped all transmissions. Why has the station gone silent? Where did all the bio-tech researchers go?

What's that clawing at the airlock?

Orbital Decay is a horror-themed adventure for the GURPS Transhuman Space setting, updated to the 4th edition GURPS rules. Characters will be provided and rules will be taught. Players will need at least 3d6. A love of fiddly, complex rules will also prove helpful.​

[title]Slot 2: Afternoon[/title]
[size=+1]Afternoon Game 1: I WANNA ROCK AND ROLL ALL NIGHT...AND kuáng​huān ​EVERY DAY.[/size]
Serenity, TracerBullet42, Table C

Work is hard to come by in the Black. When the hot new band, "Steel 'N Nails," approaches The Crew to be their tour bus on their "Worlds Tour," Mal is quick to say, "Shiny." A little bit of pay for travel and doing other respectable jobs along the way ain't no bad way to get paid at all.

Besides...rock stars don't ever get into trouble, right?

This event will be kid-friendly-ish. Serenity is more of a story driven game, so it may not be for the youngsters, but I don't anticipate any "adult content." No experience is necessary, as the rules can be taught as we play, but some familiarity with the show/movie/characters will be helpful, as we'll be playing as "The Crew."​

Players will need to sign up for the playtest in advance at Dungeons & Dragons Roleplaying Game Official Home Page - Playtest Other details may change based on any new playtests released up to Game Day.​

[size=+1]Afternoon Game 5: Jaws of the Barracado[/size]
Bulldogs!, Vyvyan Basterd, Table D

Who could be desperate enough to sign his life away for five long years? Desperate enough to take a job hauling volatile and hazardous cargo to the most dangerous places in the galaxy? Planets where the very air is a corrosive acid. Planets where the locals might cut your throat just so they can turn you into a nice steak. Planets where petty thugs and warlords are engaged in constant running gun battles and you’re just as likely to catch a blaster shot in the skull as get a signed delivery manifest. You are, that’s who. Welcome to Bulldogs!

Bulldogs! is sci-fi that kicks ass! Bulldogs! is a high action space adventure. Bulldogs! is about freebooting ruffians flying from planet to planet causing trouble. Bulldogs! is about far future technology—sci-fi movie technology that probably wouldn’t work given what we know about the universe today, but who cares? Bulldogs! is about blasters and faster-than-light travel. Bulldogs! is about hopping from planet to planet and running into a vast variety of weird aliens. Bulldogs! is about being shot at and pissing off powerful locals and fleeing just in time. Bulldogs! is about starship dogfights and ambushes by space pirates in rarely traveled star lanes. Welcome to Bulldogs! You’ll be flying in a starship and kicking ass in no time.

You’ve carried suspicious packages before, but this one takes the cake. A planet you’ve never heard of, deep in territory known for pirate attacks, with a mysterious seal that you’ve been told not to tamper with under any circumstances? Are you delivering something to the leader of the Barracado pirates himself? Will you be coming back from this mission?

Pregenerated character standups are attached, with artwork and aspects for each character. The captain of your ship is included, but he is an NPC controlled by the GM.​

[size=+1]Afternoon Game 6: The Bloody Temple of Jel'al[/size]
Swords Without Master, Nathan Paoletta, Table TBD

Rogues in a fantastic world of masters and slaves, each of you wants something that is said to be buried deep in the heart of the lost Temple of Jel'al. Using your brawn, wits and magic, will you overcome the dangers lying between you and what you seek? Swords Without Master is a narrative-heavy sword-and-sorcery game that encapsulates the “gigantic melancholies and gigantic mirth" of the protagonists.​

[size=+1]Afternoon Game 7: The Deepening Madness[/size]
Griffins & Grottos, Mark CMG, Table G

This game will begin in media res at the bottom of a slide in the depths of an extensive tomb complex. The party will consist of explorers and researchers in the employ of the Great Sage of the City State of Ronk. Soon after breaching the outer seal and stepping cautiously into Havner the Mad's mauoleum, a place no one should dare go, a collapsing floor plunged the party hundreds of feet below, the tunnel blocked by tons of stone, rubble and debris. Can an alternate route to the surface be discovered before the traps and guardians of the tomb claim everyone's lives? It's time to test your mettle against one of the most dangerous adventures ever devised.​

[size=+1]Afternoon Game 8: The Wreck of the Grinning Jenny[/size]
Dungeon World, JoeBeason, Table TBD

The pirates of the Grinning Jenny have been the bane of the South Seas for many years. Now they've sacked the Hesperus, taking its treasure and kidnapping Annabella, the daughter of Soubeton's governor. But the pirates' luck may have come to an end: they've foundered on a mysterious coral island in the Cursed Isles, and your band of adventurers has them in its sights. Can you defeat the pirates, seize their ill-gotten wealth and rescue Annabella? And what of that mysterious spire rising from the island's height?​

Also- I'm planning on bringing baked goods of some kind- that's ok, right? Thanks!
