A Romantic Mystery (Hot Guys Making Out)

Facilitator: 
mundens

Consider Gonsalvo Hidalgo, one amidst the countless children orphaned by the Fascists during the Spanish Civil War (1936-1939). And yet, at the age of 16, he is whisked away from his orphanage in the middle of the night by a taciturn man in a fine suit, driven by motorcar to a remote mountain village in the Pyrenees.

The car races through the dark mountain roads, pelted by rain and gravel, until it finally arrives at a noble house, well-kept but ancient. In front of the house stands a beautiful man, his eyes distant, his mouth frowning slightly as he looks over the scene. Next to him, a maid holds an umbrella to keep the rain off of his long, flowing hair.

The driver opens Gonsalvo’s door. Somehow, at that moment, the boy knows that he has arrived at his new home. How does he feel? Does he dare to speak his mind? Who is this gorgeous mystery man, and what connection does he have to Gonsalvo and his family?

To find out, you must play the game ...

Crucible of the Gods

Facilitator: 
Tim Oliver

Centuries ago, the four deities – Kishar, Kotaresh, Lyth, and Asar-Segt – threatened to drown the world in a flood of saltwater to punish the living for their impiety.

The oracles and witches of your realm struck a desperate bargain with the gods, however, and convinced them to spare the world. In exchange, the mortal tribes were bound to demonstrate their faith once each generation by sending their most courageous and adroit warriors to the Crucible, a ziggurat in the lowest valley of the land.

Your tribes stand waiting in fear and hope. Prove the world is worthy

The Great Kiwi Summer Holiday

Facilitator: 
Trish Plunket

"Muuuuum, I'm booooored."
You've ridden your bike, played with your rollerblades, padda tennis is lame, you broke your water pistol three days ago, you've played "Guess Who" eighteen million times, and your sister is annoying you.

And there's no TV.

You're a kid and summer holidays at Lake Taupo are always wet and boring. The grown-ups just want grown-up time and the kids next door went home two days ago. Kind of weird that they didn't say good bye. And now, not only is it going to rain, apparently there's a big storm coming...

(Note: yes, I will run this this year - sorry about the whole not making it last year due to sickness.)
