Chaos in Rome

Facilitator: 
Liam

The political landscape of Rome is shifting subtly and the family is under attack. First the head of the family was assassinated and now the daughter, Oppia, is missing. The family, along with trusted friends, now gathers at the family home for an evening meal. While this is the opportunity to discuss family business the main topic of discussion is the suspicions of your honoured guest, Senator Strabo, and how his story relates to the disappearance of Oppia.

Prepare yourself for a roller-coaster ride through ancient Rome where assassins and much much worse lurk in the shadows and players try to keep their wits and their head about them (literally) during these dangerous times.

I first ran this at Confusion 2010.

Something is up at Wormwood Mental Hospital. The friendly Doctor Rice has disappeared with rumours abound and now some the patients are behaving oddly. You feel unsafe, nervous, about to go over the edge. You reach out to your friends, if you can call them that in this odd place, touch their hands, friendly hands, warm hands, you're not alone. You feel better. If only you could find out what was going on....

Pit Stop Earth

There's this great concert at Alpha Centauri, so you all piled in your buddy's clapped out old starship for a road trip. Then something started making a grunking noise, and now you're stuck on some backwater planet called Earth. You need to find a way to fix your warp shunt, while dodging MIBs, UFO cultists, and the gun-toting redneck whose wheat field you crashed into.

The great Kiwi summer holiday

Facilitator: 
Brat

"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...

Things Fall Apart

Facilitator: 
Sophie Melchior

London. Winter. 1963.

It is a year since the Cold War went hot.

And this was not just a nuclear war.

Far more sinister, darker weapons were deployed from the shadows.

Survival and re-building are all that matter now. But human nature and tragic circumstances mean that everyone has their own ambitions.

...a Government desperate to hold on to what remains of the country.

...military forces who wish to expand their power and influence.

...frightened and brutalised refugees who simply want a place to call home.

Into this maelstrom steps the Special Situations Group, a motley band of men and women tasked with the jobs too dirty or dangerous for anyone else.

'Things Fall Apart' is a Hot War scenario written by Scott Dorward for the Hot War Transmission Issue 2.

Facilitator: 
Luke Walker

Mayor's Log. Star date Six Monkey Slap Slap.

A matter of national security has arisen in Freesboro. Strange lights, explosions and sounds have been seen on the horizon toward the ancient site known as Medcen Park. I fear for our future.

When fear, explosions and strangeness are rife I can think only of one solution - the Alpha Mutants. Paula be praised they can help us before it is too late.

Based on the Gamma World Game Day scenario "Trouble in Freesboro"
