The Derelict

Facilitator: 
Dillon Burke

A Call of Cthulhu scenario written by Sandy Petersen (the original designer of the Call of Cthulhu roleplaying game) and Mike Mason.

Afterlife

Facilitator: 
Michael Foster

Welcome to the Edge.
Life here isn't always easy. The Mayor controls this city with a tight grip, aided by Agents of the dreaded Corrections Bureau and their faceless Automatons.
There's a war on too, and we all must be vigilant for signs of The Enemy. Their spies could be anywhere, or anyone. But our brave Navy are taking the fight to them and the new fleet about to launch will be the one that finally ends the war. The Mayor says it, so it must be true.
Life in Wartime means some stuff isn't so easy to come by, at least for the likes of you and I. Folks on the East Side never seem to want for much, but that's always the way of things. Prohibition is in force, but you can usually find a drink, if you know the right people.
And of course, you don't want to be outside when the Fog rolls in.

The Apple of Her Eye

Facilitator: 
Luke Walker

Survival in the world under the shadow of the Demon Lord is difficult, not just for risk-taking adventurers, but for ordinary folk faced daily with threats of starvation, illness, and madness. What measures would such folk be willing to take to ensure the survival, even prosperity, of an entire community? And who would deny them, saving them from the memories that will haunt them in the small hours of the night?

This scenario is designed as a demonstration of the Shadow of the Demon Lord, a dark fantasy RPG of horror and madness. It is well suited for those new to roleplaying and/or the RPG. The players will have the opportunity to generate their own characters - would-be heroes risking corruption, madness, and death. Dilemmas will be explored, depravity faced, and nightmares overcome.

Word has reached the town of Old Prados that Wade Dupree and his gang, the famed outlaws, are hiding out nearby in Drymill Gulch. The sheriff has rounded up a posse of gunslingers and concerned citizens to bring these murders and robbers to justice, but in order to get there, your group will need to traverse the dangerous gulch at sunset - the only time of day the heat is bearable. Don't pay any attention to that rustling, pardner. That's just a snake in the brush.

The Laundry offers excellent psychological care to its staff, including where necessary enforced "wellness breaks" at carefully vetted retreats so they can escape the horror of being the world's only ISO 9001 compliant occult intelligence agency. But this means that some poor sucker has to vet those retreats.

That poor sucker is you. Along with your colleagues, you've been sent for a team-building holiday at the Satori Institute. You'll need to do a little work there to make sure that the staff aren't spies or cultists and that everything is safe for future groups, but that's really just a formality. Really, you're getting a fully paid-for junket to a quiet resort. It'll be hell...

A Measure of Faith

Facilitator: 
Luke Walker

The Inquisiton has found the crusader citadel of Martyr’s Point to have fallen to the profane. Rumours of the ancient god-monster, Okka the Eater, spread as quickly as the plague that shares it's name. But the truth eludes those seeking confessions, despite endless nights of torture, and an elite team of witchhunters is called to root out evil and decide where the wrongness lies.

Shadow of the Demon Lord is a dark fantasy RPG of horror and madness by Rob Schwalb, a designer on WFRP2e, D&D5e, A Song of Ice and Fire RPG and the Black Company RPG. Fans of Joe Abercrombie's First Law series will especially enjoy this scenario. The characters are a band of hardbitten troubleshooters, living in a world darkened by the Demon Lord, risking corruption, madness, and death. Dungeons will be explored, depravity faced, and nightmares overcome.

Experimental Error

Facilitator: 
Karen Wilson

You're excited to be the first research team to move into the new Salinger Building, but moving labs kind of sucks. It's tricky getting experiments to work in the new lab. There seem to be some teething problems with the building systems: lights flickering; brown-outs wreaking havoc with your sensitive equipment. You reckon the Megadairy corp lab on the top floor is hogging all the power. Their lights NEVER go out, even in the middle of the night. At least, not until the night of the blackout.

The Sun Over Mesa Amarillo

Facilitator: 
Russ Kale

The sun has been blazing over Mesa Amarillo all day, and you have been out in it, trying to find the perfect spot to camp. You are out and away from it all for two nights - away from WiFi, away from traffic lights, away from rent payments and breaking news. It's been hours since you've seen a Starbucks. Out here, it's just you, your friends, the desert, and the blistering sun.

Only... there's something else out here, too. Out on the horizon. And whatever it is, it owns this desert.

It is 2010 and United Nations Organization Mission in the Democratic Republic of the Congo has been trying to keep the peace for nearly 11 years. Now, the already fragile peace has been threatened by a reported massacre, suspected to have been carried out by a band of criminals known as the Knights of the Lord. A small group of UN specialists venture deep into the jungle of the Congo to investigate the suspected atrocity. What confronts them, however, is a much older and darker evil, buried and long forgotten in the Jungle.
