The Laundry offers excellent psychological care to its staff, including where necessary enforced "wellness breaks" at carefully vetted retreats so they can escape the horror of being the world's only ISO 9001 compliant occult intelligence agency. But this means that some poor sucker has to vet those retreats.

That poor sucker is you. Along with your colleagues, you've been sent for a team-building holiday at the Satori Institute. You'll need to do a little work there to make sure that the staff aren't spies or cultists and that everything is safe for future groups, but that's really just a formality. Really, you're getting a fully paid-for junket to a quiet resort. It'll be hell...

Night Terrors

Facilitator: 
Jenni Sands

Every night you have to listen to your kid, you have to pay attention to what they say and when they say ‘there’s something under the bed’ you have to nod and go find your baseball bat.

Night Terrors is a new game by Jenni Sands and Jack Newhouse, in which you as a parent discover that the monsters under the bed are real and they really really want to eat your children.

Think Little Fears meets Monster of the Week

Disclaimer: very new game; system may be a bit ropey, may be in playtest, but we'll have fun!

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?

EPOCH is the game of character-driven horror. It aims to deliver a genuinely scary experience in a single game session by placing the focus of the game squarely on the characters, supported by a simple, yet evocative, system. EPOCH players are expected to be active participants in the creation of the game atmosphere and have complete control over the creation and ultimate fate of their characters.

Shades of Grey

Everyone expected another attack after 9-11; be it from Islamic extremists, Arab dissenters or even Russian hard liners. But no one could conceive that the strike would come from those calling themselves true American patriots.

And yet it was. In the space of barely a second, half of Oklahoma was wiped off the face of the earth; devastated by the largest nuclear device to be detonated in the history of man.

The year is 2023, and America is no longer a country of freedom and democracy.

The Book Club

Facilitator: 
Stephanie Pegg

The Calvino Bay Book Club has been meeting for a few months now. It's been OK. The books you've been looking at have hopped around the literary spectrum from the 'classics' like Austen and Dickens, whatever new wunderkind book has got the critics excited, and that time someone wanted to talk about Harry Potter. Something for everyone, you reckon, and you get to meet people you wouldn't otherwise know.

But now, oh now, you're going to talk about The Book. That Book, the one you read when you were 18 that suddenly made the universe make sense to you. The Book that helped you work out who you were as a person. You want, no, you have a visceral need to make everyone else understand what The Book means to you.
