Titan of Chaos

Facilitator: 
Mel Duncan

You have no memories from before St Daphne's Orphans School. You and your three siblings are the only students, and the staff outnumber you dramatically. Principal Boggins teaches philosophy, Mistress Tally doubles as the nurse and biology teacher. Glum is the groundskeeper. Chemistry is taught by Professor Glass.
The grounds are large, and so long as you attend classes, you are more or less given the run of the place during the day. Each night you are put to bed by the teachers.
You're coming to the worrying conclusion that you've been at this school for significantly longer than is normal. Based on your readings, you believe that you're 17. But, when you count the years backwards, you get stuck well before you reach your childhood.

Based on the Orphans of Chaos series by John C. Wright

Watch the Skies

Facilitator: 
Mel Duncan

It’s 1957, and you are in Palomar Gardens, the slightly seedy California home base of “Professor” George Adamski’s flying saucer cult. Tonight the extraterrestrials that have been visiting Adamski for years are returning. He’s announced that they are arriving to meet his followers and welcome them to the cosmic colloquy of enlightened beings. A flying saucer will fly overhead, and later the extraterrestrials will arrive in Palomar Gardens. It’s the night everybody has been waiting for - the desert sky is clear and bright, the air is charged with anticipation, and the cocktail bar is fully stocked.

Larp registration is now open

This year's KapCon flagship is Crisis Point, a superhero larp covering everything from spandex-wearing caped crusaders to modern gritty and grim antiheroes. You can register for it here. Please remember that you will need to register for the convention as well.

Kaldera: City of Mages

Facilitator: 
Chris Haddock

In Kaldera, you play a magically gifted individual.

Everyone in the world of Kaldera has the spark of magic, but few can stand the training to build that spark to a flame. Those with the potential are taken to the great city of Kaldera itself to either develop their skills of learn to live with what they have.

Using the power Fate Core system, with my own magic rules that focus on the use of glyphs and a player's imagination, we shall create characters that posses skill with magic and throw them into one of the many plots surrounding the constantly bickering guilds in Kaldera. This game is about epic steampunk style ridiculousness, imagination, and above all player input! In Fate you have as much power to bend the story as a GM does, I have no idea what could happen.

Ideally four or five players who love magic, bio-mechs, and being generally over the top. As a bonus, you will get your own Glyph Tokens to take home!

No dice required, as I shall use the Deck of Fate for outcomes.

Conspiracy X: What's up with Morris?

Facilitator: 
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!

Conspiracy X: All Good Deeds...

Facilitator: 
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…

All Good Deeds… is a Conspiracy X adventure in which the characters will discover that the consequences of change can be very harsh indeed. Set in Atlanta in early 1999, this episode includes cancer victims, MiBs, FEMA and more than a few Doctors, as the group races against time to discover the source of the aforementioned change before it is too late.

The Tribute

Facilitator: 
Donna Giltrap

Every year the city of Athens must pay a tribute of 7 of its young men and women to King Minos of Crete. None of those given as tribute have ever been heard from again. This year you are one of the chosen. You must face whatever fate awaits those given as tribute.

EPOCH is a game of character-driven survival horror. The goal is to deliver a tense and scary experience in a single game session. EPOCH players are active participants in the creation of the game atmosphere and have complete control over the creation and ultimate fate of the characters.

Don't Mind the Donkey

Facilitator: 
Mike Foster

Welcome to Gately Comprehensive, a secondary school where no two days are the same. It could be anything, from the swimming pool being filled with jelly, a stampede of zebra through the gymnasium, right up to an alien invasion.
As the put upon teaching staff it's your job to take care of these problems, while ensuring you still cover all your classes, keep up with the marking and avoiding being volunteered for any extra-curricular activities. And all sorted in time for a pint down the pub after school, of course.

Mission Drift

Facilitator: 
Mike Foster

The Mission could not be allowed to fail. Lives depended on your success.
Now you’re adrift in space and nobody knows what happened. You don't even remember the mission. But it hardly seems important right now, because you need to find out what's going on right now. The navigational aid has vanished, and that's never a good sign.

Monsterhearts

Facilitator: 
Daniel S.

You play monsters in a modern setting. Monsterhearts is part of the increasingly popular lineup of Apocalypse World hacks and focuses around the intertwined lives of a group of monsters struggling with their lives as teenager.
There are usually many moments of humour in the game but it's usually raging hormones, anger and the struggle to fit in that drive these stories.
