It's Super Bowl 2013, and a crowd seventy thousand strong gathers at the Superdome in New Orleans to watch the pivotal football moment of the year. Everything goes off without a hitch until the third quarter, when suddenly the lights go out. Darkness and confusion reign for a full half hour until power is restored and the game runs to its conclusion. Now the Super Bowl is over, the managers and the coaches are busy pointing fingers at each other for the bizarre power outage, and rumors spread of terrible, suicidal nightmares haunting thousands of fans.
Old West meets horror: It's a rough winter for the little town of Perdition, nestled in the mountain foothills and waiting for spring thaw. Cabin fever can strike anywhere, and it doesn't help that something out in that howling snow-filled wilderness is waking up...
There's trouble in the old mansion on the edge of town, and the residents are afraid the evil family that went away has come back! Folks are disappearing and people are scared. It's not what brought you and your fellow Royal Inspectors to this neck of the woods, but it's part of your job now!
This will be a mash-up of Dungeon World along with some mini-games and other oddities. Dungeon World is an easy-to-learn 'Yes, But' system that will give your PCs some difficult (and often hysterical) choices to make. Characters provided.
New Spain, 1605. A mission located deep in the rainforest hasn't been heard from in some time. The local Spanish government won't send an expedition to discover what happened due to hostile native activity (and reports of the kidnapping of Europeans). You walk the Path of Kane - and if there are people in trouble you will save or avenge them, whether you face mortal men or the Devil himself.
All is well in the bustling city of Aalterdam - until prominent worshipers of Emptea, goddess of trade, secrets, and magic, start dying mysteriously. You are a diverse team of guards, insurance adjusters, priest-auditors, and other specialists tasked to find out who is committing these murders and why they are happening. Hopefully, you can keep from killing each other in the process of your investigation.
It doesn't seem possible that Los Angeles never had an Inspectres franchise, but that's no longer the case! You and your fellow new hires are ready to take on all the strangeness the City of Angels can throw at you. Oh, and the supernatural horrors as well. Characters provided, rules taught in a matter of minutes. Silly, lighthearted game in which a good roll lets YOU tell the GM what happens.
"From the New Haven Register, Oct. 31, 2012: ""It was an ironic Halloween twist: the discovery of skeletal remains in the root system of an oak tree on the New Haven Green toppled Monday by Hurricane Sandy....Experts said they were recovering fragments that are being turned over to the office of the state’s chief medical examiner for analysis.""
Part of the Dark College Years series, but it is not necessary to have played any of the other games to understand and enjoy this one."
A year after the Mal Reynolds and the crew of Serenity broadcast the Miranda project's disastrous consequences to the Verse, Alliance ships scour the edges of known space for Reaver stragglers.
The players are one of the crews assigned to this mission; in their search, they come upon a distress beacon hailing from far outside known space. It is up to you to decide how far to follow the signal, and how deeply to delve into the darkness outside the Verse!
