The Lesser Evil or the Greater Good

Facilitator: 
Andy Millar

Berlin 1950: In the shattered ruins of a once proud city, the occupying powers of the USA, the UK, France and the Soviet Union sit uneasily side by side as the city and its people slowly rebuild. Although the Third Reich's time has now passed, its legacy lives on in the shadows, and many surprises still await the unwary.

Against this backdrop, ex-Nazis are starting to turn up dead. This would not be particularly unusual except these individuals have been providing the allies with information on the Reich's secret weapons programme.

Now a multi-national team of Reserve Policy Agency (RPA) agents have been called in to investigate these murders and find out who - or what - is doing the killing. In a city where nothing is as it seems, these agents must make a decision between the lesser evil or the greater good, while trusting each other as much as they dare.

Note: This game deals with themes related to the Second World War in a mature and sensitive manner. However if you are easily offended or upset by these, you may wish to consider another game

Eating Annabel Anderson is Wrong

Facilitator: 
Ivan Towlson

Winterdene is one of the jewels in the crown of British private education – a prestigious school in a magnificent setting, with a towering academic reputation, a formidable old girls’ network and a hockey team that strikes fear into the hearts of all who face it. That’s what it said in the prospectus, and that’s why your parents sent you there.

What the prospectus didn’t mention was Annabel Anderson, the cruel, conceited bully of the Fifth Form. All through your first year she made your life a misery. All through your first year you dreamed of getting back at her. And now, as you start your second year, you’re going to get your chance. Because this year you have a new best friend, and your new best friend will know how to deal with Annabel Anderson.

Oh… and did I mention your new best friend is a MONSTER?!

"Just the Place for a Snark!", the Bellman cried, as he landed his crew with care. Supporting each man on the top of the tide by a finger entwined in his hair...

The Bellman himself lays dead at your feet, the victim of some dastardly deed. But who is of guilt and who is to blame, and which had a desperate need.

The Bellman lays dead, let me tell you again, and your companions all quiver with fear. Each had a cause, and all had the means, yet is that the Boojum you hear?

Their task is to investigate the murders that have occurred there, discern truth from lies, and hopefully uncover the dark truth of Grauschloss’s history.

Communing in Darkness

Facilitator: 
Donna Giltrap

Time was that everybody who was anybody went to seances. Time was that there was a living to made out of being a medium. Some of them were fakes, sure - But some of them were for real, and could put you in touch with the dead. For many rich people, mediums were a necessity. Who else would provide a link with family long gone? In the occult-obsessed 1920s it hit fever pitch, and both the good and the bad mediums thrived in an atmosphere of appreciation.
