Facilitator:

It's another day in the bowels of Ravnica keeping the system moving. You're part of Golgari Recovery Squad 23 and you've got plenty on your hands in the miasmic sewers of this immense city. Your job is to recover what the citizens above didn't want to lose and dodge what they did. But your buddies have got your back and you're going in for another 10 hour shift. It's time to ship out.

Just fly

You have a ship.
You have a crew.
Space is yours... if you can find away to stay ahead of the debt collectors, the Galactic Hegemony and your own vices.

Tommygun Requiem

Facilitator: 
Alasdair

"When a man's partner is killed he's supposed to do something about it. It doesn't make any difference what you thought of him. He was your partner and you're supposed to do something about it. Then it happens we are in the detective business. Well, when one of your organization gets killed it's bad business to let the killer get away with it. It's bad all around - bad for that one organization, bad for every detective everywhere." - Sam Spade

"You wanna get Capone? Here's how you get him: He pulls a knife, you pull a gun. He sends one of yours to the hospital, you send one of his to the morgue! That's the Chicago way, and that's how you get Capone!" - Jim Malone

Don't you understand that when you go out for revenge you have to dig two graves? You will.

Rise of the Bloodstone

Facilitator: 
Andrew Wood

Centuries ago a large dark red crystal was constructed using magical techniques akin to creating the blood of a god. Formed from the blood of sacrifice and power wrested from the deities. It is said a band of heroes emerged to stop the effects of this power from causing a cataclysmic event where the earth herself was being ripped asunder creating rifts that opened the way for chaos beings to emerge. In the battle that ensued the crystal amorphized appearing to lose its abilities and was overlooked and left to lie with the battle remnants until an archeological dig recently uncovered it. Academic interest was roused, and with that the awareness slowly built again, both in those who would use the stone and those who would seek to see it destroyed for good. A decision was made to move the stone offsite and far away to be studied. Knowledge of the stones movement was revealed when an unsuccessful attempt was made to take the stone near its journeys end.
The region the stone is now within is rough, unforgiving and lies in turmoil with the defeat of the empire and the emergence once again of dragons. You, as seasoned adventurers having sworn oaths to the Lord and Commander of the outpost IO, have been asked to retrieve the stone from those studying it and see that it is destroyed.

Magical Girl Blues

Facilitator: 
Thomas

You are a magical girl ... that is a title, you might actually be a boy, a cat, a sentient potted plant that levitates ... use your imagination. You are attending a special school for gifted people, creatures and such. One day you will become a defender of Japan and your neighbourhood - you are not there yet.

Something goes bump in your town. Trouble is that all adult magical girls are off dealing with a Kaiju crisis somewhere at the coast, so you and your friends are all that there is.

This is a home-brew system using very simple rules learned in 5 minutes. Anything goes to some degree, but keep things civil and PG. There will be only a very rough outline for a story, you will build the world, hopefully - I feel kind of lazy.

The Cats of Epeiros

Facilitator: 
Ivan Towlson

Wandering the seas on the way back from the Trojan War, a group of heroes find themselves on the island of Epeiros. The tiny kingdom is prosperous, happy - and a haven for hundreds or thousands of cats. It is said that if the cats were ever to leave the town of Epeiros, it would signal doom for the kingdom. But with what fate could the capricious gods possibly threaten such a place? What secrets do the unblinking eyes of the cats conceal? And, most important, what glory would accrue to the hero who could save Epeiros from its mysterious prophecy?

Agon is a game of Greek myth, in which you cooperate with your fellow heroes to succeed in a quest, while competing with them to determine who will take their place among the stars, and whose grave will be forgotten along with their deeds.
