The SDC Archive has been updated with two of this year's entries, including Stephanie Pegg's winning entry, But Nobody Loses An Eye and Donna & Malcom's amusing Down & Out In Middenburg

We've also added the missing 2008 winning entry For the Honour of the Family. Sorry it's taken us so long to get that one up there!

Mind the WMDs

Facilitator: 
Conan McKegg

About thirty years ago the TITANs, powerful AIs designed to protect us, went rogue and brought about the fall of humanity. Earth is a post apocalyptic wasteland and humanity has fled to the other worlds of the Solar System.

Now we have changed, we are no longer known as humanity but as Transhumanity. We have conquered death, our minds kept in backup ready to be downloaded into new bodies when required. Our forms can be anything, our bodies now just another resource for our minds to use and replace at our whim.

Valley of Lost Children

Facilitator: 
Karen Wilson

You are a member of an elite unit in the Brassicacean army, hand-picked by the charismatic captain. You’re a close-knit unit of specialists, usually assigned to ambassadorial missions or diplomatic protection, but now, mysteriously assigned to a tax collection detail. Apparently some hick town in Umbellifera (a province you’ve barely heard of on the western margin of the empire) is attracting the attention and jealousy of its neighbours by having a few more sheep than them or something.

The Golden Pegasus Home for Retired Adventurers

Facilitator:

"The Company of the Argent Banner" were once a bold band of adventurers. However, time waits for no man (although it seems quite happy to wait for elves and dwarves), and now many of the party have retired to "The Golden Pegasus".

Quest for the Tainted Mask - Darmouth Harbourside vs. Blackraven

Facilitator: 
Jonathan Tailby

In a kingdom where adventuring is a spectator sport; warriors, wizards and thieves risk dungeons, kill monsters and rescue treasure, and it is all shown live in taverns and inns throughout the kingdom. All your heroic deeds on display for your adoring fans.

In the third round of the Association Cup, the once great Darmouth Harbourside are matched against the heroic Blackraven questing for the Tainted Mask. So our brave heroes venture forth with only their referee, camera crew, coach and reserves to back them up, hoping to revive former glory.

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...

[This was originally run at Kapcon 07]

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.
