[size=+1]Game 1: STAR WARS: Behind Enemy Lines[/size]
Fate Accelerated, Pbartender, Table G
Kid-Friendly


IT'S A TRAP! When the Republic destroyer Nyancat is ambushed by a Separatist task force, the crew must find a way to live to fight another day. Can a pair of rookie Jedi Knights and the veteran senior officers of the Nyancat's clone command crew escape certain death?

[size=+1]Game 2: Legacy Code[/size]
The Laundry, WJMacGuffin, Table C (private room)
Adults Only


This time, there's no emergency meeting, no midnight phone calls, and no panic. We all had the VOLUME TEACAKE meeting on our calendars for weeks, and now it's time. But as we sit in the meeting room, I find three facts very disturbing. One, HR sent a manager here--that usually means more paperwork. Two, I think I overheard talk of sending us to St. Hilda's--any trip to the Funny Farm is scary. But the worst? There's a distinct lack of both tea and cake in this room. Then what the hell does VOLUME TEACAKE mean?

The Laundry (based on the Laundryverse novels by Charles Stross) mixes Call of Cthulhu with modern technology and intelligence agencies to create a unique rpg that's part silly fun and part pants-wetting horror. The percentile-based skill system is very easy to pick up, and this game encourages thinking rather than running into a room guns drawn. (You can do that, but you'll probably get possessed by some creature that bullets don't hurt.) Plus, you'll have the latest in occult intelligence technology like the Necronomiphone, banishment rounds, and the virtual Tillinghast Resonator app! (If you're rated for it. And if you're budget has room for it. And if you sign forms saying you'll eat a live dhole before letting anything happen ... fine, just ignore the shiny tech, grab your charms, and let's go.)

Rated R for violence, gore, potential cannibalism, and entropic beings who want to chew on your soul.

*This will the be third in a series of linked games played by different groups, so don't let the "Part III" scare you.

[size=+1]Game 4: Trouble for Hire[/size]
Trouble for Hire, Nathan Paoletta, Table E
Adults Only

Set in a hyper stylized pastiche of 1970′s road movies of hi-octane road adventures in the post-western world, Trouble For Hire is a cooperative storytelling game for 4-6 players. It’s a macho, high-octane trek across the American west populated with amazing ner-do-wells and madcap eccentrics living by their own code and damn the rest. A game where the rubber meets the road and all hell breaks loose.

Kid-friendly

The crew of the Stardust Dancer were given one simple job: deliver a load of cargo, no questions asked, no Imperial entanglements. What could go wrong?

[size=+1]Game 6: Long Orbit[/size]
Monsterhearts, JoeBeason, Table A
Adults Only


It’s the distant future. You are part of a modest crew aboard a freighter headed for a planet that’s being terraformed. You are awoken from stasis at the proper time, but a major storm on the planet’s surface makes landing much too dangerous. Your ship will be stuck in orbit for days. A minor inconvenience, except that you haven’t felt the same since waking up. You seem disquietingly capable of impossible things and you’re pretty sure your fellow crew members are too...

This is a setting (not rules) hack of Monsterhearts.

May include themes of isolation, body and psychological horror, romance, desperation, and survival.

[size=+1]Game 8: Dawn Patrol[/size]
Dawn Patrol, Isawa Hochiu, Table H
Kid-friendly

Dawn Patrol recreates the thrilling dogfights and air battles fought during World War 1. Each player pilots an airplane in a fiery test of his or her skill and nerve. There is a role-playing element, as players maintain records of their pilots' missions. Experienced pilots have some advantages over rookie pilots.

[section]
[size=+1]Game 9: Ghastly Things Come in Small Packages[/size]
Dread, Reidzilla, Table C (private room)
Adults Only


Trying to pass Professor Jones' Archeology class is a nightmare. Luckily he gives extra credit for unpacking and processing new international exhibit items. When you and your fellow academically challenged classmates come across a tiny, unmarked crate in the latest shipment can they make the grade before the FINAL exam.

Dread is a unique horror story game system using a Jenga tower as a randomizer. No experience is necessary to play but a love of old cheesy horror movies and a desire to make poor survival choices for the sake of entertainment is useful.

Eternal Contenders, DainXB, Table A
Adults Only


Take on the mantle of an ambitious gladiator or a deadly duelist - an eternal contender! Prove your worth in the arena and fight your way out of the gutter. Can you become a renowned champion? Can you escape to a better life? Or will darkness and pain consume your world?

Based on the award-winning Contenders RPG, this GM-less game brings the spirit of fighting games like Soulcalibur to the tabletop. Torn between Hope and Pain, the contenders strive not just for victory, but to save their heart's desires. As the story unfolds these warriors’ dreams will be realized, or dashed!

[size=+1]Game 11: Lady Blackbird[/size]
Lady Blackbird, Sailorkitsune2004, Table E
Adults Only


Lady Blackbird is on the run from an arranged marriage to Count Carlowe. She hired a smuggler skyship, The Owl, to take her from her palace on the Imperial world of Ilysium to the far reaches of the Remnants, so she could be with her once secret lover: the pirate king Uriah Flint.

HOWEVER, just before reaching the halfway point of Haven, The Owl was pursued and captured by the Imperial cruiser Hand of Sorrow, under charges of flying a false flag.

EVEN NOW, Lady Blackbird, her bodyguard, and the crew of The Owl are detained in the brig, while the Imperial commander runs the smuggler ship’s registry over the wireless. It’s only a matter of time before they discover the outstanding warrants and learn that The Owl is owned by none other than the infamous outcast, Cyrus Vance.

How will Lady Blackbird and the others escape the Hand of Sorrow? What dangers lie in their path?

[size=+1]Game 12: Rock & Roll Will Live Forever[/size]
Supernatural RPG, Ninjacat, Table D
Adults Only


There's definitely a Hunt on the Seattle music scene when the ghost of a rocker who died a decade ago appears on-stage with some of his old bandmates. The problem is that Chris Corbin died in a freak pyrotechnic accident, burning to death on stage right in front of his fans. . .and his ghost re-living his death sent several fans at the barricade to the hospital with third-degree burns. This ghost needs to be put to rest before someone gets killed...

This event is in the setting of the CW's Supernatural television show, using the Classic Cortex ruleset. Cortex is a simple stat+skill system, using one or two full polyhedral dice sets (d20s are not used, but d2s are.) Several canonical show characters are available, but no Winchesters or angels, sorry. If you don't know the show, all you need to know is the supernatural is real: ghosts, demons, hauntings, possession- -all real. And some people who know about it fight back: Saving People, Hunting Things...

[size=+1]Game 13: Steamscapes: North America, Rivalry Plot Point Campaign[/size]
Savage Worlds, Fairman Rogers, Table I
Kid-friendly

You have been hired by Wells Fargo to escort a very important automaton prototype across the deserts of Texas to San Francisco in the Rocky Mountain Republic. Someone working for the Southern Pacific Railroad has already tried once to steal it, so you will have to be extra vigilant. Throw in bandits from Mexico and airship pirates from the Plains Tribal Federation, and this is going to be one messy trip.

[size=+1]Game 14: Cold Fusion[/size]
Dead of Night, buzz, Table G
Adults Only

A cutting-edge power plant in northern Canada promises a solution to the world's energy problems: a process that produces energy at 100% efficiency and with no harmful by-products. What is the mysterious substance at the heart of this process? What does the newly-elected Minister for Energy hope to discover during his inspection? Why is it getting so cold in here?

Dead of Night is the roleplaying game of campfire tales, slasher movies and b-movie horror. It is a game of screaming victims, unstoppable killers and slavering monsters, where the horror movie clichés flow thicker than blood and the only victory is survival.

Characters will be provided and rules taught. Players need only 2d10 and perhaps a pencil.

Torchbearer is a game of dungeoneering, where every roll matters, and each torch may be your last! Careful planning and resource management are a must as you delve into the dungeon, and try to escape with as much loot as you can carry... and your lives.
