Apes on a Mother Freaking Shuttle

Facilitator: 
Andy Mc

Standing between the forces of technology and the forces of nature lie the knights of the balance, otherwise known as plumbers. These brave souls ensure that neither unfettered progress nor rampant nature triumph. Where necessary they step in, with a trusty spanner in hand to deal out justice. A crack group of master plumbers have been summonsed to Manchester, England, to hear a report of a potential reality dysfunction from Bill 3rd, the Grand master plumber...

Operation Icebox

Facilitator: 
Svend

The year is 1947, and the American Navy is conducting manuvers in Antarctic waters. But for a small group of marines, it's not just the icy conditions they'll be fighting...

The players will be archetypical soldiers (Sarge, Greenhorn, Moose, Doc & Koslowski) dealing with a supernatural menace on a sub-Antarctic island. We will use the InSpectres ruleset. Last time this was run, there was time for two episodes.

Super Stir-Fry Samurai: The Remixed Second Helping

Facilitator: 
Nick Pitt

Take on the role of the Champloo characters Mugen, Jin or one of many other larger then life badasses available and ready to be thrown into this sizzling course of over-the-top samurai madness. Expect a bit of mystery, impossible odds, implausible events and an unlikely mash-up of some very conflicting personalities! Add one part Feudal Japan, two parts Hip Hop and an equal three parts of smack-talking and furious action and you'll hopefully have something that approximates The Remixed Second Helping of Super Stir-Fry Samurai!

Exalted: Worldfalls

Facilitator: 
Tim Oliver

The youth of the Great Houses of the Realm can be so much trouble - the simplest thing to do is to send the annoying brats off to run some embassy or satrapy far, far away where they can't get into any trouble. Well, they can get into trouble, but at least they won't start a civil war or damage the fabric of reality. Or if they do, they're thousands of miles off, deep in the barbarian lands, and they won't interfere with your tea.

Lashings of Ginger Beer - The secret symbol of the lost plot

Facilitator: 
Julia Blackmore

Yet another Famous Five piss take - in the style of the TV comedy Five Go Mad in Dorset by The Comic Strip team. What new spiffing adventure and fearsome adversaries will the wholesome team encounter this time? Or will it just be a pleasant and peaceful trip to some exotic windswept location - not likely old bean!!! No doubt, some kind farmers wife will provide stacks of cream cakes, ham sandwiches, bags of lettuce and loads of tomatoes - wizard!! So bring along your silly British accents, bicycles, camping equipment, and simply lashings of ginger beer - well hoorah!!
