MotW: Zombieland!

Facilitator: 
Jenni Sands

That outbreak of mad cow disease that jumped to mad people disease and is now mad zombie disease? Yeah, that was a couple of years ago. It's too late to save the world, the world is definitely on its way out. But you can save yourselves! With guns.

Zombies are everywhere and you're just a rag tag group trying to survive... will one of you manage zombie kill of the week? Will you encounter a dead celebrity? Will you find true love? Forget it, Portland, it's Zombieland.

Experimental Error

Facilitator: 
Karen Wilson

You're excited to be the first research team to move into the new Salinger Building, but moving labs kind of sucks. It's tricky getting experiments to work in the new lab. There seem to be some teething problems with the building systems: lights flickering; brown-outs wreaking havoc with your sensitive equipment. You reckon the Megadairy corp lab on the top floor is hogging all the power. Their lights NEVER go out, even in the middle of the night. At least, not until the night of the blackout.

It Ain't Easy Being Gilled

Facilitator: 
Anna Klein

Remember high school? All the angst, the drama, the rebellion, the gossip, the crushes, the homework, the exams, scholarships, careers, family obligations, fashion, music, and being very misunderstood?

It's no different when you're a student at Innsmouth High School. Well, all right, maybe it's a little different - maybe in other towns they don't go skinny dipping at Devil's Reef, maybe other teenagers don't have arranged marriages with Deep Ones to worry about and maybe other teenagers don't have to worry about how their gills look with the latest looks in Cosmo. But other than that, it's not much different being a teenager in a decaying town trapped in an ongoing alliance with a race of underwater monsters.

A group of ten friends are having a small party to celebrate their graduation - to reflect on the last few years, to talk about the future, and maybe resolve some of those unresolved feuds or unspoken crushes.

A comedy larp for ten players. As they say at Innsmouth High - it's only funny until someone gets sacrificed to Dagon. Then it's HILARIOUS.

The Temperance League of Vikings

Facilitator: 
Freya

You are Vikings! Conquerers of the North, followers of Odin, warriors, and you have just sailed across the sea with Thorkin the Tall to attack England!

Having crushed a small barony, you have been leave to do what your particular vikings does best - oust drunken Englishman from the pubs and tell them off for giving into the sin of alcohol! But can you do it without giving into the sin of drink yourself?

A silly apocalypse-world hack designed to maximize ridiculousness, slapstick, and as many opportunities for laughable accents.

Disclaimer: Any resemblances to Vikings living or dead is purely coincidental.

BLU is the Night

Facilitator:

The year is 2076. Deep in the heart of Seattle, a secret rivalry between two companies is escalating. Murder, sabotage, theft, and arson are only the beginning. One company, known only by the code-name "Builders' League United", has finally amassed the resources needed to launch a final assault; and that's where you come in.

You are an elite team of Mercenaries, experts in your chosen fields. The nine of you have been hired for a delicate job; somewhere in the headquarters of a powerful company lies a heavily defended safe. The contents... well, you haven't been told what's in it, but your employers are paying you a lot of money to retrieve it for them. Enough that you could all retire and live comfortably for the rest of your lives.

The catch, and there's always a catch: the safe lies deep within the heart of one of the most secure buildings in the city. You'll need to work as a team to pull this one off.
