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.)

Circus Game

Facilitator: 
William Howard

In which a group of young circus performers are abandoned, and must track down their circus family, learning where they come from and how important they are to each other in the process. The players take on the roles of circus performers in America, in the 1870s.
The civil war has ravaged the south, and while reconstruction money is starting to flow into the bigger cities, life is very hard in small town America. Times are hard, and the players find themselves having to make some tough choices..
Thematically the game deals with what it means to be a family, with consequences, and with the price of happiness
