The Long Dark Tea-time of the Soulless

Donna Giltrap

Written by David Morrison

Snowdrop House is a newly established B&B, which boasts the finest afternoon tea in all of Brindlewood Bay. So naturally, when an old friend invites you to tea you are quick to accept. However, Snowdrop House used to be the old Stockton Farm, rumoured to be the site of many dark secrets. Secrets some people might kill to protect...

Brindlewood Bay is a roleplaying game about a group of elderly women—members of the local Murder Mavens mystery book club—who frequently find themselves investigating (and solving!) real-life murder mysteries. They become increasingly aware that there are supernatural forces that connect the cases they are working on and, in particular, a cult dedicated to the dark, monstrous aspect of the goddess Persephone will come to vex them.

The game is directly inspired by the television show Murder, She Wrote, but also takes inspiration from the works of H.P. Lovecraft, “cozy” crime dramas, and American TV shows from the ‘70s, ‘80s, and ‘90s.

World of Avatar: Paranormal Investigators of Republic City

Robert Shaw

A one-off tabletop game using the World of Avatar Roleplaying System.

Set at the end of season three of Avatar: The Legend of Korra, this game is about a small esoteric group of individuals who find their unusual skills in high demand. As a new team of professional amateurs, the Paranormal Investigators are faced with great change in their home, Republic City.
Expect Spiritual Shenanigans, Satomobile Stunts, Civil Construction Chaos and a healthy mix of bending meets technology.

The World of Avatar is a roleplaying system created by America Club members Joshua Eyre and Joseph Dillon, and expanded upon by a dedicated group of play testers. It is a simple d10 system focused on storytelling. While it uses dice rolls to determine how conflicts and actions resolve, the main focus is on the narrative and collaborative character-driven story.

Conspiracy X: What's up with Morris?

Marcus Bone

It began, as it always does, with a phone call. “Mother is ill and requires your assistance…” How it ends, however, is up to you…

What’s up with Morris? is a Conspiracy X adventure in which the characters discover that the “truth is out there” (or maybe not?) Set in the fictional town of Morris, Illinois during the halcyon days of the 1960s, this episode includes strange deaths, UFO sightings, and a sprinkling of conspiracy nuts. The big question for the investigators isn’t exactly who to believe, but rather who not to…

What is Conspiracy X?
Conspiracy X takes place in a world of dark secrets and hidden agendas where the only certainty is nothing is what it seems. The president might not be human, and the sign carrying paranoid on the street corner ranting about CIA mind control satellites may very well be right. In other words, a world just like yours, if you could see beyond the lies.

A combination of X-Files, Fringe and every other alien-hunting, government conspiracy setting you’ve ever read or watched on TV, Conspiracy X sees the players take on roles as agents of Aegis, the front line against and invasion of aliens and the supernatural. It is their actions that protects the world from within and without, often with great sacrifice.

Style of Play?
A story driven game for 3-5 players, it is primarily an investigation and clue-hunting game that throws in a bit of quite deadly combat. Expect handouts, the occasional tactical map and a few stand up figures. It should be noted that this adventure is simply a good old RPG scenario, like the ones you'd likely be playing in the comfort of your own home, and is what the players make it!
