The Grand Wannabe Adventurer School Tournament

Facilitator: 
Julz Burgissser

It's the end of the school year at Wannabe School, the starting place of all truly great adventurers in Isen. Which means it's time to showcase everything you've learnt this year in the school's Grand Tournament! Sign up for as many competitions, duels and challenges as you like, there's something for everyone. The giant Golden Trophy with it's gleaming ruby shining brightly at the top of it, has been placed on the trophy table and it towers over the smaller awards. Everyone wants to be crowned Tournament Champion. Everyone wants to take that trophy home. Will it be you? Play to find out!

Set in the homebrewed World of Isen, created by Brad Zimmerman. Session DM’d by Julz Burgisser who plays Marley Kraff in the D&D 5e actual play podcast ‘Fate of Isen’ available for download on iTunes, Spotify and all good podcasting apps. See www.fateofisen.com for more details on Isen.

‘The Grand Wannabe Adventurer School Tournament’ is a homebrewed one shot adventure created by Julz to teach people how to play and use their characters skills, while playing in a learning supportive environment, based in The World of Isen created by Brad Zimmerman. The one shot is played over 3.5 hours (can be altered to suit timeframes shorter or longer if needed) with pre-generated level 1 characters.

Warnings: This session is fairly fun and super welcoming of all ages, abilities and who folx are or want to be. Due to the game being set at Level 1, no D&D knowledge is needed. This game is designed to teach and as such I would ask players with more game knowledge that still want to attend, to roleplay along in the spirit of that. I like to keep my players safety in mind at all times and run a respectful table with safety tools to keep it that way. Any questions regarding this, please ask.

AVAILABLE PRE-GEN CHARACTERS Dwarf Barbarian, Gnome Druid, Human Bard, Half-Elf Ranger, Halfling Wizard, Tiefling Rogue

Escape across the Desert

Facilitator: 
Julz Burgissser

Arkvale Empire is crumbling after the Evil Empress was executed by Hero's and being an Arkvale soldier doesn't seem a good idea anymore. You've got a plan. You're going to head across the giant burning Dorekis Desert, surely you won't be followed and bought back. There's rumours of giant monstrous creatures seen all over the continent, but the desert has never been home to anything but sand, so you're not worried. All you have to do is make it across and you're free and you even have someone with you who knows the way! What could possibly go wrong? Play to find out!

‘Escape across the Desert’ is a homebrewed one shot basic monster encounter adventure created by Julz, based in The World of Isen created by Brad Zimmerman. The one shot is played over 3.5 hours (can be altered to suit timeframes shorter or longer if needed) with pre-generated level 10 characters.

Warnings: This session is fairly fun and super welcoming of all ages, and who folx are or want to be. Due to the game being set at Level 10, some basic D&D knowledge would be useful as the encounter is a little tricky, but I can assist those who really want to play. I like to keep my players safety in mind at all times and run a respectful table with safety tools to keep it that way. Any questions regarding this, please ask.

The Pinebridge Slasher

Facilitator: 
Julz Burgissser

A shadow has been slipping across Pinebridge, leaving a trail of gruesome murder and bewildered towns behind. It seems that whatever is behind the gory deaths has made it to Mept, Capital City of Pinebridge as they find another victim. The local force, known colloquially as the Mept Muckers for their slogans about cleaning up the filth, are scratching their heads about the strange circumstances around the death and Mept is humming with gossip, even more than usual. Captain Bobby Horg, has reached out to the only Investigators that he thinks can save his beloved city before the death toll climbs. The Famous Wistal Whistles Mystery Solvers are on the case. Can they find this Slashing Serial Killer or will they too succumb to a grisly death? Play to find out!

Warnings: This session is fairly fun and super welcoming of all ages, abilities and who folx are or want to be, there are one or two moments of scary. Just the usual monsters that make you go mad to gaze upon and gory death stuff but I like to be upfront and keep my players safety in mind at all times. Any questions regarding this, please ask.

Freeze | Thaw | Broil

Facilitator: 
Alasdair

Your life wasn't normal, but you had a house, a car you drove to your job, friends you played poker with on a Thursday evening. You had a Best Buy Mastercard and were working on getting your handicap down to 11. You also had three passports and speak 5 languages, because you used to be a spy. Then you were burned, and put into deep freeze; persona non gratis. Espionage is a wilderness of mirrors and a game of shadows, and for just a moment, you saw behind the curtain and saw the unbelievable - Vampires are are real. When you looked into that Abyss, it looked back, and you were lucky to get out with your life, because you took a chance that the synthesized voice on the other end of a burner phone was on the level with you. Not everyone in your team was so lucky.

Now you're southern Kentucky, with a borrowed name, the contents of your go-bag, and the name of the first rung on the ladder out of the deep freeze and into the sunlight. Your only friend is a voice that might answer the burner phone, and you've got nothing left to lose.

Games on Demand urgently needs more facilitators! Can you help?

Necessary qualifications are:
