GM: Game System: Event Title: Players:
John Britch Fate Accelerated Edition Diana’s Hunters: The Secrets of Cats in Imperial Rome 6
Description: Rome. Seat of an empire and home to a million souls. A magnificent city built on conquest and commerce, engineering and law. The Romans sleep soundly behind stone walls, mindless of the terrors that lurk in the dark, supernatural forces drawn to the teeming city like moths to flame. But the people are not alone. Heroic cats stalk the night to guard their human Burdens from threats they don’t understand. You are one of these sacred guardians, Diana’s Hunters, blessed by the gods with mysterious powers and sworn to defend the Eternal City. • This is a mashup of Richard Bellingham’s The Secrets of Cats and Pete Woodworth’s Eagle Eyes with a heaping dollop of Chad Bowser’s Cthulhu Invictus for extra flavor.

Keith Stetson Seco Creek Vigilance Committee Justice, Law, Revenge 5
Description: Three notorious outlaws sit in the Seco Creek jail. The evidence against them for the current crime is scant. They’re probably not guilty—at least of this. But their reputation precedes them and the townsfolk have no intention of letting them make it to trial. You’re part of the posse that apprehended them and the fate of the three outlaws is tied to your actions. But so is your own. What will you do? • Seco Creek Vigilance Committee is a tabletop role-playing game of justice, law, revenge, and the discrepancy between what is right and what is good.
• 18 and older only Serious
GM: Game System: Event Title: Players:
Matt Weber No Country For Old Kobolds A World of Ouch 5
Description: Kobolds are the prototypical low-level D&D nuisance, but now it’s time to step into their shoes… over and over again. As they die, they pass on what they have learned to their descendants. Until one day, perhaps the Kobold people as a whole will be free and prosperous, or at least achieve a life expectancy greater than that of the average ferret. • This game is a hack of Dungeon World with unique mechanics relating to the Kobold village as a whole. Even in a single session, players will likely play multiple characters apiece, as the succeeding generations of the village struggle against the ever-present menaces of the world—such as Bears, Elves, and Elf-Bear Hybrids wielding nunchuks!

Description: The Golden Age is ending, and soon all that will be left is humanity. Play elves, halflings, trolls, and other fantasy peoples as they face physical and cultural extinction in a world that no longer has any place for them. Demihumans is more an Apocalypse World hack than a Powered by the Apocalypse game, so AW veterans, come my way. But anyone who has played a fantasy video game or seen Lord of the Rings is welcome.

This is the story of 12 Communards, their messy personal lives and their attempts to create a utopia in the face of impending death. How far would you go for what you believe in? Would you stand firm even if it meant your death? • A freeform game very much in the spirit of Montsegur: 1244 and Witch: the Road to Lindisfarne. • This is a playtest of a game in development.

Daniel Levine Jane December 13 5
Description: From 1969-1973, the women of the Abortion Counseling Service of Women’s Liberation – known as “Jane” – worked clandestinely to provide safe and empowering abortion services.
