The Babysitters Club

Martijn Verburg [karianna]

Down on your luck and desperate for any sort of paid gig, you and your intrepid group of 'heroes' spy a well paid job on the local noticeboard.

"Mercenary Guards wanted for security at Lord Chadsworth Farquat's 18th Birthday Event! Candidates should make themselves available to the Guard house at Farquat manor at the first bell on the 13th of Jules. 10gp per guard for the day's work."

Lord Farquat is the heir apparent to the Farquat's, an ancient founding house of the sprawling metropolis of Eisenberg. His estate is on the Noble's promenade, close to the Sanguine Gates that lead to the lower city. It will be a dull day standing security for a bunch of snooty privileged young nobles, but hey 10gp each will keep you in ale for a few weeks yet! You all head to bed early, to the distant sounds of the beating drums from the latest protest down in the slums, a regular occurrence these days...

Martijn Verbirg [karianna]

Your squad has recently graduated from the Elvish Imperial Navy Marine Corp, the Empire's Elite! Your first mission is to retrieve a communique from the fast picket “Death Becomes Her” in the Mors system. Upon entering the Mors shellspace, sailors on your lumbering Man o’ War start to nervously spin tales about lost ships and entire crews going mad. Pffft, that’s just typical Navy talk to scare the new recruits! There’s nothing to fear for you, the Navy’s elite marines – long live the Empress, OORAH!*

HardTime - Two for the price of one

Arcane Crimes Division: Triptych of Blood


Arcane Crimes Division brings light-hearted buddy-cop style action to a fantasy city bursting with magic and thick with scheming villains and ruthless scoundrels. The focus of the game is the relationship between detectives, as they crack cases, engage in thrilling chases, and confront criminal masterminds.

During each shift, teams of detectives battle the clock, pursuing leads across the city to unravel crimes, and bring the guilty to justice, before it’s too late. While the detectives always crack the case eventually, should time run out, the villains receive an advantage in the final confrontation. At every juncture, detectives must decide whether to trigger their special abilities to boost their success, potentially risk causing collateral damage, that could see them both consigned to paperwork hell.

Play as a Siege Automaton, powered by magic and steam; a Spell-Runner, skilled at navigating deadly dungeons, a Crimson Court Vampire, ageless and unnaturally attractive; a Blade, acrobatic and fearless and many more. This game works best when detectives riff off their partners, so be prepared to collaborate and lean-into the genre.

Triptych of Blood
The recent death of the city matriarch has created the sale of the century. As the last member of her family, she leaves behind no heir, meaning her impressive collection of jewellery and art will be sold at auction. Treasures mundane and magical will see the light of day for the first time in centuries. What wonders and horrors stand to be unveiled has gripped the imagination of a whole city.

Security is a paramount concern. The auctioneers have spared no expense in hiring the best private guards and thief catchers that money can buy, and the polarity police department chief has personally guaranteed that the only action or excitement will be frenzied bidding. Criminals- you have been warned.

One Hell of a Party

Dave Cadman

There’s a house party by the lake and everyone who’s anyone is there. Sure, you don’t remember how you got there and if you really know any of the guests, but who cares when there are bangin’ tunes, an assortment of highs, and so many strange and beautiful people to explore.

One Hell of a Party is a (highly modified) Monsterhearts adventure where the characters are hormonal teenagers who may or may not also be monsters. Confront the supernatural, solve a mystery, or just go on an epic bender! But be careful, one wrong move and you could be slain, or even worse, embarrassed in front of your peers!

Due to its adult themes, this is an R18 adventure. Respectful play will be required and an ‘X card’ and ‘lines and veils‘ will be used throughout.
