Project Olive Branch

Facilitator: 
Trond Nilsen

Welcome to the Project Olive Branch Troubleshooting Task Force. You may be aware that Quality Assurance have recently detected several critical defects in the first batch of Vindicators, due to be delivered to Alpha Complex Armed Forces in only a few days. Executive has determined that while these defects are most likely the fault of commie traitors and rival firms, a full review of the project is needed to examine these challenges and determine a preferred strategy for overcoming them.

Please report to conference room B14 for briefing.

Herald of the Yellow King

Facilitator: 
Andy Millar

As a cold December settles over the kingdom of Shereborne, you are brought before Lord Boniface and commanded with the simple task of delivering an apology for a past grievance.

However it is hard to undo that which has once been done, and a chain of events has now started which may result in madness, murder or much worse for the lands of Wessex.

As the herald of the Yellow King spreads his dread news across the land, you will need to summon all your courage, cunning and wisdom if you are to halt the power of the yellow sign.

Monsters in a Manual

Facilitator:

In 1983 the Reagan administration approved a 2 billion dollar bill for the relocation and resettlement of 18,000 refugees from "non-reality-based" countries and regions to start new lives in the good ol' U.S. of A.

Today is a proud day for Gary the Beholder and his friends, the first native-born generation of “Monstrous Americans” as they embark on a road trip along the classic Route 66 to start their first year of college.

The Rosetta Plague

Facilitator: 
Luke Walker

“The TAS Thoth! Sounds like a musical, looks like a music hall! I thank you!” The Doctor throws the TARDIS doors open and leads you out onto a wide open, brightly lit hall inside the Archive ship. A symbol, a ‘T' made of hexagonal cells, is engraved on the wall.

"Torchwood. They're doing good work in this time period, to be fair. Lots of archiving, lots of research. None of that imperialist, if it's alien it's ours, nonsense from the 21st Century.” He breathes in, looks up and smiles. “No, here, all they're concerned with is the endless, complex tapestry of hist-Oh.”

Running towards you, arms waving, teeth bared, are a variety of aliens. Each one looks furious, each one is brandishing a weapon and each one is screaming one word over and over again.

‘DEATH! DEATH! DEAAAAAAAAAAATH!'"

Play the Doctor, Rose, Captain Jack and the gang through an adventure in time and space.

This game will be run on Saturday night, during the larp, for non-larpers. Please contact the facilitator if you want to play in it.

Little Vermin

Facilitator: 
Donna Giltrap

You are members of the Vermin, a gang of Victorian child thieves. A travelling circus has arrived in town and wherever crowds gather there are rich pickings to be found. Your boss, Mr Fladges, is expecting the evening to prove most profitable. It doesn't do to disappoint Mr Fladges, and he has made it clear that anything less than a shilling each would be most disappointing.

Shadowrun: Something Completely Different

Facilitator: 
Grant Robinson

It's Not Just a Show, It's a Happening

As any artist will tell you, the art scene can be brutal, especially in
a high-octane setting like Manhattan. There are plenty of horror stories
to go around—but none of them can touch what’s about to go down at the
Guggenheim.

In this Mission, Shadowrun players will find themselves in the middle of
an art opening unlike any other, with chaos and screaming and dancing
statues. Unless they keep their wits about them, the latest masterpiece
in the museum will be painted in blood—and to make things worse, if they
can’t defuse the situation, they might not get paid.

Something Completely Different is the latest Manhattan Mission, giving
Missions players a chance to learn more about the creative spirit behind
some of the city’s artistic masterworks while also giving them the
opportunity to shore up their alliances with powerful megacorps.

Note, this mission is a part of the ongoing Shadowrun Missions campaign
set in New York. You are welcome to bring along a character if you have
one prepared, you are also welcome if you don't have a character and
would like to try out the latest edition of Shadowrun, since I will have
sufficient pre-generated characters at the table.

Dice required: between 5 and 15D6
