HarnCon - The Witch-Stone of Calamísa

Facilitator: 
Fastred (Jeremy Baker)

A young man exiled from his clan has returned home from studies overseas. He believes he has discovered important and troubling news that could affect his clan and his nation. He is estranged from his clan, so seeks help from lesser known persons to verify his discovery.

As the players explore and seek answers, it becomes clear that they are not the only group after the artefact, and that it may, indeed, be a very dangerous thing indeed....

Set in the Kingdom of Chélemby in the Gulf of Shôrkýnè, the "Witch-Stone of Calamísa" is a great way to get to know the culture and society of Chélemby and the politics and mysterious past of the region.

A Stiff One

Facilitator: 
Stephanie Pegg

You've just had the worst week of your life. This thing happened, and it was awful, and no matter what you tried to do about it, it was still unspeakably horrible. Well, almost unspeakably. That's what Friday night drinks are for - to sit down with your mates, have a stiff one, and vent about all the stuff that's been happening in your life. Just wait 'til they hear what happened to you.

The world is getting weirder. Darker every single day. Things are spinning around faster and faster, and threatening to go completely awry. Falcons and falconers. The center cannot hold. - Jim Butchder "Storm Front"

Project Sparrow

Facilitator: 
Jacqueline Brasfield

As an expert in your field it's not uncommon for you to be approached by organisations who want your assistance. So when a representative of "DeNeCo" got in touch you were quite happy to consider their proposal. The initial brief was vague (the accompanying confidentiality agreement was much more robust) but they paid well. Very well. After doing some research on DeNeCo you decided to accept the offer.

For the past 2 years you've visited the facilities once every 6 months with a group of other experts who have a wide variety of skills. The work is engaging and challenging and is similar in many respects to other projects you've been a part of - with two major exceptions: You don't know what you're actually helping develop, and you're always brought to the facility wearing a blindfold.

Note: This game may not be suitable for players with claustrophobia or who otherwise might not be comfortable being blindfolded for a long period of time. Players will likely be leaving the building for all or a portion of the round. Pre-registration essential as character bios will be mailed out in advance of the game. Any costuming required (minimal) will be provided at start of game.

The Lesser Evil or the Greater Good

Facilitator: 
Andy Millar

Berlin 1950: In the shattered ruins of a once proud city, the occupying powers of the USA, the UK, France and the Soviet Union sit uneasily side by side as the city and its people slowly rebuild. Although the Third Reich's time has now passed, its legacy lives on in the shadows, and many surprises still await the unwary.

Against this backdrop, ex-Nazis are starting to turn up dead. This would not be particularly unusual except these individuals have been providing the allies with information on the Reich's secret weapons programme.

Now a multi-national team of Reserve Policy Agency (RPA) agents have been called in to investigate these murders and find out who - or what - is doing the killing. In a city where nothing is as it seems, these agents must make a decision between the lesser evil or the greater good, while trusting each other as much as they dare.

Note: This game deals with themes related to the Second World War in a mature and sensitive manner. However if you are easily offended or upset by these, you may wish to consider another game

Not Ideal

Facilitator: 
Michael Foster

Daz is a small-time dope dealer who works to the simple mantra of "no cash, no hash" and doesn't sell the hard stuff. He wants nothing more from life than to sit on his couch eating pizza, playing on his xbox360 and getting high.

Unfortunately for him, the people who knock on his door seem to have other ideas.

Welsh Jeff is Daz's best mate, he can name every number one since 1960, but can't find Cardiff on a map of Wales.

Tracey is tall and beautiful, a pole dancer with big ideas.

Sausagemeat is a hitman, obsessed with gossip.

Sachiko is Daz's next door neighbour, she seems more than a little odd.

Chisels is the psychotic local gang boss and a difficult man to say no to, who always has some mad scheme or other on the go.

Life for Daz and his mates is about to become less than ideal.

*May include some larp-style elements if people are up for it.*

Eating Annabel Anderson is Wrong

Facilitator: 
Ivan Towlson

Winterdene is one of the jewels in the crown of British private education – a prestigious school in a magnificent setting, with a towering academic reputation, a formidable old girls’ network and a hockey team that strikes fear into the hearts of all who face it. That’s what it said in the prospectus, and that’s why your parents sent you there.

What the prospectus didn’t mention was Annabel Anderson, the cruel, conceited bully of the Fifth Form. All through your first year she made your life a misery. All through your first year you dreamed of getting back at her. And now, as you start your second year, you’re going to get your chance. Because this year you have a new best friend, and your new best friend will know how to deal with Annabel Anderson.

Oh… and did I mention your new best friend is a MONSTER?!
