City of Mist is a noir investigative role-playing game of Ordinary People and Legendary Powers. The PCs are “rifts”, awakened legends, in a city that actively fights to hide the presence of the legends that sleep within.

 

City of Mist is a “Powered by the Apocalypse” game (with a touch of Fate), using same rules-light engine as Apocalypse World, Monsterhearts, Dungeon World, Urban Shadows, and Masks: A New Generation to make noir style characters awakening to their identity as living legends.

Star Frontiers + Old School Hack? Yup. Run by Kirin

Strap on your Needler and hop into the cockpit, the Sathar are up to their space shenanigans with this entire corner of the galaxy at stake! They will probably have to be stopped by prodigious use of blasters, anti-gravity and bad dralasite jokes.

No Experience necessary but appreciation of space opera tropes is encouraged. Kid Friendly.

Imagine Hamlet meets Kill Bill, with a couple of strong dashes of Spawn and Ghost Rider. This game is GM-less, featuring a scene-based freestyle roleplaying system, brought to a focus with decisive card mechanics, using a Tarot deck. One person plays the Rider, returned from Hell to get revenge on his former gang, the Devil's Dozen, and the other players play the Leathers, the key characters in the gang. The Rider has until dawn to exact vengeance, while the Leathers will do everything they can to escape the Rider's wrath!

The sun's set, it's Devil's Night, the Rider's on the loose, and the Devil's Dozen are on the run!

GAME CONTENT RATING: Adults *only* (language and mature content)

This is a Gumshoe game set in Waterdeep in the Forgotten Realms. Why? Why not?!

It's The Wire's Baltimore meets 1930's London meets The Club Dumas.

While the destruction of Candlekeep may have been horrible for the Forgotten Realms as a whole, it was pretty good for the shady book trade. Much of that trade runs through Waterdeep, formerly a shining bastion of civilization on the Sword Coast. Now, a seedy, decrepit city where the handful of noble houses suck the last bits of light and magic out of the rest of the populace, wretched Waterdeep teems with malice and dark sorcery. 

You're no hero. Or Wizard. Or Cleric, for that matter. You're just an ordinary gal trying to make a decent living tracking down and selling books. Do you care where they came from? Maybe. Do you care that there are people willing to pay good coin for them? Most certainly. So you brave catacombs, back alleys, and sketchy auctions to find them, trying to avoid fireballs and face rats.

All ages welcome. No Gumshoe experience required. But a strong attachment to any Forgotten Realms sacred cows will almost certainly result in dissappointment.

In Masks: A New Generation, you make and play a young superhero, the next generation of heroes of Halcyon City, a Metropolis-style fiction city at the forefront of civilization.

 

Masks is a “Powered by the Apocalypse” game, using same rules-light engine as Apocalypse World, Monsterhearts, Dungeon World, Urban Shadows, and Epyllion to create stories about young superheroes in the vein of Young Justice, Young Avengers, and Teen Titans. The system emphasizes challenges the characters face and their relationship as much as their abilities.

Come playtest Swords of the Serpentine, Kevin's new fantasy GUMSHOE game of classic swords and sorcery, in the style of Lankhmar or Lies of Locke Lamora! 

In "A Subtle Blade", you find yourself at a noble's ball to match wits with the most accomplished (and smug) inquisitor that Eversink has ever known... but there's a murderer on the loose, and your reputation at stake. 

This scenario focuses on the game's social combat, political manipulation and mystery investigation. Heavy on the roleplaying. No rules knowledge necessary.

Reinstated on Mars, you've joined the impoverished clanking masses of New Shanghai under the boot of the dominant hypercorps doing all they can to keep you down.  Joining a Barsoomian movement intent on making a difference, you are set to infiltrate a Terragenesis facility to expose the corruption keeping people bound to the domed cities of Mars and the will of the almighty dollar.  But when this ramshackle operation doesn't go as planned, you quickly learn that the gaps in your memory hold a dark secret, one that may shake your loyalties to their core.

This is an adventure in the Solomon Kane setting using my somewhat hacked version of the Savage Worlds rules. If you're not familiar with the setting just imagine a mash-up of "Three Musketeers" with "The Witch."

Futureshock Transhumanist Shenanigans and other Orbital Hijinx

Eclipse Phase game (heavily hacked) run by Kirin

The human race has been driven off the earth, if what we have become can even be called human anymore. Download your memories and awareness into one of a variety of bodies and make your way through a space-based existential crisis in this post-singularity game that divides consciousness from manifestation.


This is a heavily homebrewed hack of Eclipse Phase (all the setting, none of the system). Expect some dodgy content (body horror, weirdness, cut-rate transhumanist handwavery) and some cool paper handouts.

No experience necessary. Probably not for kids.

roughly ashcanned from this

This is going to be an adventure involving some seriously effed-up stuff going on in a town haunted by evil emanating from an abandoned asylum/orphanage, using Shadow of the Demon Lord (fantasy role-playing, in a Warhammer FRP-like setting). Adults only, due to mature content, disturbing themes, and extremely gratuitious grotesquerie. 

You are The Malificent Seven: monster-hunters, demon-slayers, and cult-killers extraordinaire. You're not very nice and you don't play well with others in general -- except for the members of your own band troop (and even that's dicey at best). But you're good at what you do, and a young earl with more money than common sense is trying to hack out his own private duchy in a ruined city that has seen more bloodshed, gruesomeness, and deviltry than most places could possibly claim in an eon. And he wants you to hire you to help him get rid of some pesky undead, an evil cult, and various other nasty things plaguing his lands.

You know, the usual.

You got a gut feeling that you should skip this job. But then again, you get that every time you're offered a job like this -- and you really need the money. You always need the money.

But... sigh... really? Hordes of super nasty undead? Yet another cult probably trying to summon yet another demon to bring about the end of the world? And creepy kid-things killing people and dragging their bodies off to an abandoned asylum? Seriously, who needs this shit? 

Apparently, you do. 

(Obviously, I'm bucking for the Camp NCGD Edgelord Award here...)

The unfortunate students of Monster High School are set to take on the jerks from Adventurer Academy in the sporting event of the season: the Dungeon Run relay race and obstacle course, bane of monsters everywhere.  The Monsters haven't won the meet since Great-Grandpa Bugbear's day, but something about this year feels different.  The stakes are higher and there's much more than bragging rights on the line.  Can the misfit monsters pull off the upset of the century?
