Monsterhearts

Our Entire High School Sinking into the Sea

Facilitator: 
Russ Kale

It's the end of another year at Silverward High, in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, and everyone's getting ready for the senior prom. The theme, after a lot of argument and compromise, is 'The Sea and Stars', so you can expect a certain... diversity of gowns and tuxedos.

However, Silverward has been abuzz over the last few months with rumours of some horrible evil lurking in the school grounds. You don't want to be spending the best night of the year averting disaster, but you may have to team up with your friends (and enemies) to make sure there's still a student body left to vote for prom queen.

You play monsters in a modern setting. Monsterhearts is part of the increasingly popular lineup of Apocalypse World hacks and focuses around the intertwined lives of a group of monsters struggling with their lives as teenager.
There are usually many moments of humour in the game but it's usually raging hormones, anger and the struggle to fit in that drive these stories.

Monsterhearts Double Feature part 2

Facilitator:

What evil lurks in the near by high school, apart from teenagers of course, I have no idea. In part one of this double feature the weird and scary was unleashed, now your here to set things right. For those who are unfamiliar with these games they are both Apocalyse World hacks, the first with a focus on the more unhealthy aspects of teenage life and all the drama that entails. Think Jennifers Body, Teen Wolf, the Craft. The second game is more along the lines of Supernatural, Fringe and the X-Files.

Monsterhearts Double Feature

Facilitator: 
Daniel S

Live the messy, horrific and selfish life of a teenager...oh and be a monster too.
I will be directing a game of Monsterhearts. This will be followed up with Stefan Tyler running a session of Monster of the Week, where the hunters track down the and deal with the outcomes of the actions and decisions of the first game. For those who are unfamiliar with these games they are both Apocalyse World hacks, the first with a focus on the more unhealthy aspects of teenage life and all the drama that entails. Think Jennifers Body, Teen Wolf, the Craft. The second game is more along the lines of Supernatural, Fringe and the X-Files.

I may run Monsterhearts again but the double-feature is a one off.

Dropping Like Flies

Facilitator:

Another trimester at VUW and everything's just damn *peachy*. The philosophy students are splitting hairs to try and get laid, biology professors are killing rats, your crush just walked through a concrete block the other day, scarves are the latest fashion (especially for pretty male first years), you've got three assignments due in the second week, your roommate has the weirdest collection of books you have ever seen in your entire life, you think your theatre lecturer is some kind of fae or something and there's been a string of weird suicides lately.

...wait, *what*?

All is not well at VUW's Halls of Residences, and for once, the fact that a devil is after your soul may be the least of your worries...
