Jumping the Sharky

Mike 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.

NB: There will some elements of "shared narrative" indie gaming carry-on as all character interaction will take place in the form of telephone conversations (feel free to supply your own props) and action will occur "off-camera" with the participants narrating the outcome afterwards.

Do Not Go Gentle

The Brothers Dingwall

30 years ago you were the best. A team the Mob and the cops both called on in turn when things needed to get done. No one could touch you.

Now it's 1987, and people are starting to die. People you know from the old days. You know you crossed people, you know many many things didn't end right - but you don't know who's killing your friends or why.

You put the word out. It's time to get the old crew back together - the Bedlam Kids can take on one last job before they die...


Do Not Go Gentle is a tragic crime drama by The Brothers Dingwall, using their homebrewed Goatsong system.

Burying the Hatchet

Michael Foster

The London criminal underworld is ruled with an iron fist (wearing knuckle dusters) by Neil "Sharky" Baxter and all has been peaceful in his realm since he put an end to his arch-rival Vince "the Hatchet" Carver in a fiery conflagaration. But now someone is stirring up trouble and rumour on the street is that the Hatchet is back for revenge.
It's up to Sharky's top men; Don and his hand-picked gang of nutters Kev, Desmond, Lance and Weasel; to embark on a head-stomping, finger-crunching, face-searing orgy of violence to discover the truth and finally bury the Hatchet!


Not Ideal

Michael Foster

Daz is a small-time dope dealer who works to the simple mantra of "no cash, no hash" and doesn't sell the hard stuff. He wants nothing more from life than to sit on his couch eating pizza, playing on his xbox360 and getting high.

Unfortunately for him, the people who knock on his door seem to have other ideas.

Welsh Jeff is Daz's best mate, he can name every number one since 1960, but can't find Cardiff on a map of Wales.

Tracey is tall and beautiful, a pole dancer with big ideas.

Sausagemeat is a hitman, obsessed with gossip.

Sachiko is Daz's next door neighbour, she seems more than a little odd.

Chisels is the psychotic local gang boss and a difficult man to say no to, who always has some mad scheme or other on the go.

Life for Daz and his mates is about to become less than ideal.

*May include some larp-style elements if people are up for it.*

Precinct '77 - Kings of Hazard (S02E01)

Marcus Bone

Copied from the TV Week:

"Precinct '77 returns for a second session of guns, gals and crime in Empire City.
In this episode, Crane returns from suspension, Wilks edges ever closer to retirement, while James' past in the ghetto comes back to haunt him. The trio also becomes a foursome, as they are joined by the rookie Bayder, an up and coming flatfoot with a thing or two to prove to the team. And, hell, we ain't even got to the plot of the episode yet!"


What is Precinct 77?

Big collars, bitchin’ cars, side burns, Fog Hat. Yeah, you remember the ‘70’s. Or at least you've heard of it. Welcome to Empire City, just upstate from Springfield. The heroes are the detectives of Precinct 77. This isn’t about procedural law. Th is is about kicking down doors, grabbing the punk by the neck and getting the information you need. Here in the cinematic land of 1977 men are men, women are women, the spirit of justice trumps the letter of the law, and political correctness only means that you just voted the bum out of office. Th e only rule to remember is the good guys never shoot first.
