Kaldera: The Homunculus Gang

Facilitator: 
Chris Haddock

They're ratbags and scoundrels who don't know no law,
They're a horribly cantankerous crew.
The Homunculus Gang are the bosses of town,
And they're coming to say hi to YOU!

Nobody in town messes with the Homunculus Gang. They're small time bullies and thugs, but they have big money and bigger magic behind them. So when they come knocking with their grins and their stupid hats people just clam up and pay them the danger money.

But they've gone knocking a bit too hard on the wrong door.

Barry is mad. Hell, Barry is always mad. Being the owner of the largest Bed and Breakfast chain in Kaldera will do that to you. But today Barry is madder than mad. He's effing furious. The Homunculus Gang cruelly destroyed the door of his favourite establishment, and now he wants revenge. That's why he's calling on you. Mayhem, murder, trickery and treachery, Bed and Breakfast Barry doesn't care how you do it, just so long as you make sure the Homunculus Gang doesn't dare come knocking in his neighbourhood again.

About the Game:

Kaldera is a setting for the Fate Core and Fate Accelerated game systems that I have created. It's unique feature is a custom magic system that uses an alphabet of runes that each have a base name and a multitude of meanings. The goal is to use your imagination and cunning to create crafty spells and grand effects using three runes. Since it is Fate, the sky's the limit! Come to this game ready to do some crazy magic, in a crazy city full of crazy people!

You do not need any prior knowledge of the system or the setting, everything will be learned and explained at the table, although some knowledge of Fate Accelerated will be useful. Character's skill sets are pre-constructed, but names and backgrounds will be done at the table as well. No dice are needed, but some paper and pencils are useful.

Can do a second run in rounds six or seven as needed :)

Kaldera: City of Mages

Facilitator: 
Chris Haddock

In Kaldera, you play a magically gifted individual.

Everyone in the world of Kaldera has the spark of magic, but few can stand the training to build that spark to a flame. Those with the potential are taken to the great city of Kaldera itself to either develop their skills of learn to live with what they have.

Using the power Fate Core system, with my own magic rules that focus on the use of glyphs and a player's imagination, we shall create characters that posses skill with magic and throw them into one of the many plots surrounding the constantly bickering guilds in Kaldera. This game is about epic steampunk style ridiculousness, imagination, and above all player input! In Fate you have as much power to bend the story as a GM does, I have no idea what could happen.

Ideally four or five players who love magic, bio-mechs, and being generally over the top. As a bonus, you will get your own Glyph Tokens to take home!

No dice required, as I shall use the Deck of Fate for outcomes.

This will be the RPGA component of Kapcon 2011. If I can run this in the room usually set aside for the RPGA's in case we get more GM's turning up that would be appreciated.

Destiny Investigations - Episode 5: What will be, will be

Facilitator: 
Conan McKegg

Destiny Parker and her siblings - Chance and Providence - are not your average private investigators. Capable of influencing the various aspects of fate, they investigate crimes that have happened, are happening and will happen all in order to make money and keep the univese safe from those who seek to bring ruin to everything.

There is just one little problem... Destiny is obsessed with finding her one true love, Chance can't stop sleeping around and Providence may or may not have accidently brought about the end of the world while trying to arrange a date!

Smallville is a Roleplaying game about super powers and relationships. It is an ideal television show style game that captures the pacing and feel of a TV series focused on the relationships between the characters.
