Uncharted Worlds: The Falcon Expanse

Facilitator: 
Idiot Savant

You hit the jump button, the world turns inside out. On the other side of nowhere is the Falcon Expanse, a three day crawl across a dull transit system in the heart of a nebula. But instead of hot gas and pretty scenery, you have proximity alarms, a debris field, and a system full of dangerous wreckage. Who fought this battle? Who has survived? And what sort of a mess are they going to get you in this time?

Into the Aether

Facilitator: 
Paul Wilson

You could not believe your eyes as the merchantman came into view, fat with booty and ripe for the taking. Solar sails the size of buildings and shimmering with waves of energy. The crew were starving for the filthy lucre that they could take from the hold. Silks from Saturn, Plutonian Ales and arcanotechnology to fit the ship with.

You are the Privateer Crew of the RAS Grey Caller fighting in a space opera world. You will sail the archipelagos of the rings of Saturn, dive to the depths of the Neptunian seas and fight with the lizard men of Mars only to slip away into the Aether and avoid the reach of the Terran Navy.

A game of swashbuckling action and planetary romance.

Red Ball Express

Facilitator: 
Michael Charles

Imperial Operations on Typhon are stretched to breaking point, with supply lines coming under constant fire from the Heretic Traitors dug into the mountainous terrain. The main supply line, known as the Red Ball Express, is the most vital of these routes, being the only viable passage for the heavy vehicles of the Astra Militarum between the Landing Zone and the battle lines.
With heavy losses on the front, the survivors of the 92nd Cadian have been reassigned to guard duty on the convoys while they await desperately needed replacements. Little do the men and women of the Second Company know what dangers await them on the Red Ball Express
It is the 41st Millennium, and in the Grim Darkness of the far future, There is only war!

It was meant to be a simple job: recover a "package" from the locked cargo vault of a crashed starship on SR-388. And then everything went wrong...

Don't Mind the Donkey

Facilitator: 
Mike Foster

Welcome to Gately Comprehensive, a secondary school where no two days are the same. It could be anything, from the swimming pool being filled with jelly, a stampede of zebra through the gymnasium, right up to an alien invasion.
As the put upon teaching staff it's your job to take care of these problems, while ensuring you still cover all your classes, keep up with the marking and avoiding being volunteered for any extra-curricular activities. And all sorted in time for a pint down the pub after school, of course.

Mission Drift

Facilitator: 
Mike Foster

The Mission could not be allowed to fail. Lives depended on your success.
Now you’re adrift in space and nobody knows what happened. You don't even remember the mission. But it hardly seems important right now, because you need to find out what's going on right now. The navigational aid has vanished, and that's never a good sign.

Doctor Who: FIFTY

Facilitator: 
Morgan Davie

Fifty years of Doctor Who! Here's a game to mark the occasion.

The Chatfields were an ordinary enough family, until 1963. Then things went a bit strange. And they kept on getting stranger. Over the ensuing decades they would keep crossing paths with a very interesting man indeed. He was called the Doctor, and he would change their lives forever...

This is an 11th Doctor adventure, so you'll be playing the Matt Smith incarnation and companions from his run.

It is also the Moffatiest adventure I could come up with. It will probably work best with people who've watched some recent Doctor Who and have enthusiasm for timey wimeyness. Obviously. But there'll be plenty of nods to the history of the show - classic Who geeks might enjoy the references, but you don't need to know anything about them to get along.

Anyway. This will probably be a bit unpredictable and might not work. It would be good if players came ready to set scenes and do some narrative stuff. Oh, and I have no idea how to end it, but that's just another Moffaty feature, innit.
