This is no child that dances

Facilitator: 
Karen Wilson

Copper Creek, a small town distinguished only by its private liberal arts college, turkey processing plant and unusually high teen pregnancy rate. Recently, a spate of unexplained fires has the local fire department and
law enforcement agencies stumped. You and your associates suspect supernatural forces may be at work. Last night a caravan in the local trailer park was burnt to the ground, incinerating the elderly resident. Can you solve the mystery and stop the fires before someone else is killed?

Shadows of Esteren - Loch Varn

Facilitator: 
Frank

You're confused. You remember being sent to help the nearby community of Loch Varn. But who are these others with you? Come to think of it, who are you?

A crossbow bolt splinters against the rock by your head, and you taste blood from the chips of stone or steel hitting your face. You try to crouch down, to hide from the incoming fire, and realize you're already pressed against the earth, back against part of a wall, amongst a field of ruins, made of twisted metallic beams and rubble. A few torches lying on the floor provide some light, but not enough to see the enemy.

Your eyes meet those of others, also crouched fearfully in the rubble. They're not shooting at you, so perhaps you're with them? How long has this battle been going on? It's plain the others are as confused as you. Is that a body? Is it a person or... something else?

The only thing that's certain is you can't stay here for much longer, whoever fired that last bolt had line of sight on you. Perhaps that doorway, it looks like the one you all must have entered by...

Something in the Heir

Facilitator: 
Sarah Daymond

When everything goes to hell, it doesn't matter who you know. It's what you know. What you remember.

What really matters is where you came from.

The Proga family came from old money, and they squandered it away. They hold the same grand party every year, but every time it gets a little less extravagant, a little less special. Rumour was, they'd spent it all on secret collaborations with the government. Not that they have anything to show for it, now.

This year, the only reason they're holding the party at all is the weight of tradition. You probably won your ticket from a radio station. It doesn't matter. Are you here for the party, though, or something more important?

Are you ready to learn where you're headed?

Ink Will Have To Do

Facilitator: 
Freya Sacksen

London, 1888. It's July, stinking hot, and the city is crawling with things that can't be mentioned - vampires, werewolves, mummies, succubi, fae (dark horrid things - in the Islands they know, but the upper classmen here sniff and tell tall tales)...

...and now dead prostitutes.

For one reason or another, you're getting drawn into petty mortal disputes that, you're to find, are far less petty than they seem, and far beyond mortal than they have any right to be.

Death In The Streets

Facilitator: 
Alasdair Sinclair

Prohibition was the best thing that ever happened to you. You used to be the lowest scum on the streets, now you’re welcome at every fancy place in town. Millionaires know your name, and your phone number. Gin, whisky, champagne are the lubricants of high class life: your life. You were a big man about the towns, and had the respect of all your friends.

Now when you drive through the streets it’s with a shotgun on your lap, and when the mists descend you don’t go out at all if you’re smart. It ain’t the law. You’ve got him beat. It’s something else. Something that ain’t no respecter of authority, and ain’t too worried by bullets and armoured glass neither.

Some say it’s the devil come for his share. You say: fuck him. This is your town.

Pleasures of the Flesh

Facilitator: 
Alasdair Sinclair

Your voyage on the Sea Princess is a dream come true: at sea in a 5-star floating hotel. Every luxury known to mankind is readily available aboard this floating city. Food, wine, sex, even drugs. On the High Seas you are beyond the reach of the law, perhaps beyond the reach of morality. You are also beyond its help. As you indulge your desires and shed your inhibitions your vices seem virtues and your virtues are commonplace. It is a dream life, a dream that could be yours forever. When offered the choice of eternal pleasure, at the price of a moment’s suffering, who will say no?
