American Gothix

Facilitator: 
Jackie

Small town USA, 1986. The goth years.

You and the entire teenage goth population (all 6 of you) have heard the best news ever - The Cure are coming to town!!!

Well, not your town. I mean, nothing ever happens in your one-cow town. This is going to require a road trip, and it's going to be EPIC. You have the family mini van, assorted useful (or not so useful) resources spread between you, and one shared goal: do whatever it takes to meet Robert Smith.

Communing in Darkness

Facilitator: 
Donna Giltrap

Time was that everybody who was anybody went to seances. Time was that there was a living to made out of being a medium. Some of them were fakes, sure - But some of them were for real, and could put you in touch with the dead. For many rich people, mediums were a necessity. Who else would provide a link with family long gone? In the occult-obsessed 1920s it hit fever pitch, and both the good and the bad mediums thrived in an atmosphere of appreciation.

The Book Club

Facilitator: 
Stephanie Pegg

The Calvino Bay Book Club has been meeting for a few months now. It's been OK. The books you've been looking at have hopped around the literary spectrum from the 'classics' like Austen and Dickens, whatever new wunderkind book has got the critics excited, and that time someone wanted to talk about Harry Potter. Something for everyone, you reckon, and you get to meet people you wouldn't otherwise know.

But now, oh now, you're going to talk about The Book. That Book, the one you read when you were 18 that suddenly made the universe make sense to you. The Book that helped you work out who you were as a person. You want, no, you have a visceral need to make everyone else understand what The Book means to you.

Semi-Larp
Comments: 
I expect the runtime to be about two hours, so a good choice for the Just Before the Larp slot. I'm happy to move to a different timeslot if it's needed to balance the timetable, though.

Digging for a Dead God

Facilitator: 
Dale

In May of 1939, somewhere in the jungles of Africa, a small band of soldiers have stumbled across something ancient. Something terrible. And they are about to suffer the consequences.

Digging for a Dead God is part one of the 'Curse of the Yellow Sign' series by John Wick. This is Cthulhu at its darkest, and not a game for the faint of heart. Enter if you dare...

Due to popular demand I'm re-running Slayage by Gaslight!

On the streets of London the gaslight burns, but in the darkened corners something evil lurks. The number of dead ladies of the night continues to climb. Can the Council’s Slayer get to the bottom of what’s behind it, before the next dead body is someone you know?
