Skyreach

Facilitator: 
Luke Walker

The gods have fallen and mortals have failed to make their own. A band of newly ascended demigods travel to the distant reaches of the Raktine mountains to discover the source of strange fumes that destroy city after city. The fumes shroud a mystery beyond their wildest expectations. They must learn how best to use the power that they possess to overcome what lies in wait for them.

This is a scenario for Sine Nomine's 'Godbound', an RPG of mortals granted the power of demigods. The scenario will involve fantastical locations and antagonists, weighty choices for the PCs, and high levels of action and drama. The rules are simple, using Basic/Expert D&D as its base, and suitable for both beginner and experienced RPGers.

The Madness of Their Judgment

Facilitator: 
Ivan Towlson

On your travels back from the Trojan War to your homes in Greece, you have seen many troubled lands, but the city of Nisyros must have given the gravest offence of all to the gods. The women of the city have been driven to madness and have fled into the mountains and forests. The king of Nisyros has appealed to you to save them, but thwarting the fury of a god is easier said than done!

Of course, the quarrels of gods and kings are ten to an obol. Your interest is glory – the glory of greatness in battle, in word, and in spirit – glory that will echo down the ages in poem and song. That is why you sweat and bleed. But only one of you can go down in legend as the saviour of Nisyros. Who among you will be immortalised with their own star in the heavens? And whose grave will be forgotten along with their deeds? Enter the agon, and prove the glory of your name.
