Lambs of a Nameless God

Facilitator: 
Luke Walker

The world ended ten years ago today. Some say it came from the sky. Others that it came from below, twisting through the streets of our city like a darkness. Others simply awoke to find their world have left them. The older ones couldn't survive in this new world without past. So we, the younger ones, thrived.

We live life now bright and free in the wasteland, in defiance of everything that tries to take it from us – apathy, hunger, violence, loneliness. We cling to each other tightly as together we can be ourselves; our whole world, not caring that everyone out there ignores us.

Jumping the Sharky (name subject to change)

Facilitator: 
Michael Foster

The Boss is laid up in hospital, his right hand man on the run and his best men scattered far and wide. Someone's putting the pressure on and there's no time or chance for a gathering to plan their counterattack. But the distance separating them may yet prove their greatest strength, as each man is able to carry out his part of the plan unnoticed while the enemy thinks they're too scattered and distant to be a threat. Of course, communication is key so that every member of the team knows exactly what he has to do, but in this technological age long distance isn't the problem it used to be.

Sitting Shiva

Facilitator: 
Stephanie Pegg

Someone you care about has died. It might have been a friend, a lover, a relative. Whoever it was, their absence has left a raw place in the part of you that thinks about them. You've gathered with other people who knew that person to sit shiva, to relive your memories before they flicker out like a spent candle, maybe to say that one thing you always wanted to, but never did.

Hades Entertainment acquires the award winning DragonStone™ reality game show

12:30pm PST, Friday, April 17th, 2071

Hades Entertainment, a subsidiary of the Draco Foundation, is pleased to announce the purchase of the former Horizon network, Phox. The Phox network primarily known for its multi-award winning DragonStone™ reality game show, has seen a dramatic fall in popularity in recent years. After spirited negotiations, Hades CEO Conal Mc Cumhaill and Phox President Sergei Kurakin held a Matrix virtual press conference at 11:45am today to announce the transaction.

"This sale positions Hades Entertainment to revitalise the highly successful DragonStone™ show, our expanded DragonStone ™ game will revolutionise reality game shows and attract a new generation of fans and promises to be something special."
Hades CEO Conal Mc Cumhaill

“We are pleased to have the opportunity to redevelop the Phox network’s premier show, DragonStone™ with Hades Entertainment. We look forward to bringing Denver the most technically advanced reality game show in existence.”
Phox President Sergei Kurakin

The Phox President declined to respond to rumours about the shows cancellation prior to the sale to Hades and dismissed suggestions that the public were “tired” of the seemingly endless reality shows produced by his network.

Hades Entertainment has surprised many with the purchase of such a niche company, for an undisclosed eight-figure sum.
