We be... monsters?

You are all members of a monstrous race. Maybe all the same, maybe some sort of crazy cross cultural group. Regardless the dirty sunloving butchers are muscling in on your territory. What are you going to do about it?

Slaves of the Moon

Facilitator: 
Luke Walker

”…the cult of death and night, personified by the moon, whose white, implacable, frozen lips were appeased only by the warm blood that flowed upon her altars. They caught the blood in goblets as it ran from the stone grooves... they raised it aloft... and the goblets were swiftly drained in mid-air by the remote goddess, as if the sacrifice had proven acceptable.”
— Clark Ashton Smith: An Offering to the Moon

In the wake of Atlantis' fall beneath the waves, there is an antediluvian age filled with mysteries yet uncovered. A band of adventurers seek refuge from the Red Tyrant in a city lost in the mists. They are welcomed by the ruling dynasts with a great feast in the shadow of the Temple of the Moon. Will the fruits of the city be theirs, and will they survive long enough to enjoy them?

This is a traditional sword and sorcery scenario written by Xoth Publishing converted for use with Khepera's "Atlantis: the Second Age" (a re-envisioning of the classic "Arcanum" RPG). The PCs are classic pulp heroes facing impossible odds and supernatural foes in manner worthy of tales and songs.

Break a Leg (aka The Stand-Ins)

Facilitator: 
Mike Foster

Filming on the movie event of the year has begun. J.J. Abrams is executive producing and some big names have signed up to appear. After years of legal wrangling, delays and rewrites, production on the shocking true story of the brutal criminal gang that terrorised London for years is finally underway.
But tensions are running high among the cast and crew. Rumour has it that an actual member of the gang is on set as a consultant, and death threats have been received, advising in great detail exactly what will happen if production is not halted immediately. To keep everyone calm filming has been moved to a secret location and extra security added.
Lights, camera, action!
