Incident at Talos

Marcus Bone

Talos IV, the most advanced space station in this region of the Bleed, faces destruction.

Karia Darsell, intergalactic terrorist and unstoppable assassin has posted a warning - Talos IV and everyone onboard will be destroyed unless her demands are met in the next 24 hours. The problem is no one knows exactly what those demands are...

So it is up to our Heroes, the Lazers (the region's freelance police), to not only stop this terrorist threat, but also find out who or where Karia is hiding, and what has made her so angry.

This adventure is a science fiction game using the Ashen Stars (GUMSHOE) system. Combining action and investigation it is set-up as a race against time, in which the character's actions will determine whether or not the space station is saved and just who might survive. It would best suit players wanting a challenging investigative (GUMSHOE at its heart is a investigation game) roleplaying experience where they will have to make hard choices and difficult decisions.

Operation Thundering Faith

Marcus Bone

Mr Verity requires your attendance...

And so it begins again, another mission for the Ordo Veritatis (a secret organisation dedicated to the protection of humanity and the destruction of Outer Dark Entities). In this operation the characters find themselves called into investigate the apparent suicide of a high school student, who has seemingly, almost overnight, developed a vestigial twin.

Facing a hostile town, reluctant witnesses and a hidden evil, the operatives are in a race against time to prevent the permanent destruction of the membrane that protects reality from the horrors of beyond.

The Esoterrorist (2nd Edition) is a modern day conspiracy horror game using the GUMSHOE system. This adventure is one of investigation, discovery and drama, and would best suit players looking for a hard hitting, plot driven, game session (i.e. more SVU/Criminal Intent than Action/Adventure). Please note that this plot includes some adult themes, although the depth to which these are explored will be left up to the players to decide during play.

The Lesser Evil or the Greater Good

Andy Millar

Berlin 1950: In the shattered ruins of a once proud city, the occupying powers of the USA, the UK, France and the Soviet Union sit uneasily side by side as the city and its people slowly rebuild. Although the Third Reich's time has now passed, its legacy lives on in the shadows, and many surprises still await the unwary.

Against this backdrop, ex-Nazis are starting to turn up dead. This would not be particularly unusual except these individuals have been providing the allies with information on the Reich's secret weapons programme.

Now a multi-national team of Reserve Policy Agency (RPA) agents have been called in to investigate these murders and find out who - or what - is doing the killing. In a city where nothing is as it seems, these agents must make a decision between the lesser evil or the greater good, while trusting each other as much as they dare.

Note: This game deals with themes related to the Second World War in a mature and sensitive manner. However if you are easily offended or upset by these, you may wish to consider another game
