It is meant to a good old holiday away from the noise and stress of modern life. But it's never that easy, is it!

Fear Itself (Gumshoe)

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.

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"

Shadows Within Dreams

Facilitator: 
Luke Walker

“Dreams. These fragments of death... How I hate them.”

An island on the brink of death. A cathedral filled with memories. Dreams plagued by black winged harbingers. Five strangers with destinies obscured by shadow. A girl cries for help into the empty night.

In the world of Gaia, choices must be made, bonds must be formed and a stand must be taken.

So cold in Alaska

Facilitator: 
Karen Wilson

Since Christmas, three people have been bizarrely murdered in Taihape. In each case, abnormally tall people dressed in retro clothing were seen in the area near the time of death. The media have now decided this is a serial murder case and have labelled the killer "That 70s Guy".

Early this morning you were "invited" to a 9.a.m. meeting at Wellington Central Police Station by Detective Inspector Andy Roberts, who is putting toge...ther a team to lead the investigation (and manage the media circus). As you leave for the meeting, there is news of another murder, this time in Wellington.

Warning: Game has a background of intergenerational domestic violence and sexual abuse, including child abuse, and is quite explicit. Some scenes will probably be upsetting.

KapCon needs YOU!

My, you're organised this year, aren't you? Registration has been open for less than two weeks, and we already have 62 prereigstrations. That's double what we had this time last year (when we started earlier). Last year, we didn't get to this stage until January.

Despite organising a pile of games for first and second rounds, I hadn't expected quite this level of demand, and game choices are narrowing fast. Which means we need more games, at least a couple each session. So, if you have an idea for a game, and want to give con GMing a go, then please do. Not only will you gain the acclaim of your players and the thanks of a grateful gaming community, you'll also get discounted entry and the chance to signup for sessions later in the con. So, click that Run a Game link, and help make KapCon happen.
