A battle of Boggins

Facilitator: 
Kairaku

Your dreaming and your cat is talking to you.

I’m gonna let you in on a little secret, your cat says. "You aren’t in charge. Sure, I know you like to think you are, and with your guns and lights and cars, you can kill just about anything you want. But killing a thing with a gun or a car isn’t the same as killing it with your claws, and that’s where you all fall short. When it comes to fierce fighting, your kind are about as helpless as kittens.

That’s why, every thousand years, we win the contest, and why, every thousand years, you all come in dead last. Your champion shows up all half-witted and naked, no more ready for battle than a white blister ready to be popped. You’ve
got no teeth and you’ve got no claws, and you just don’t remember how to fight. It’s a shame, really. You know why? Because the less you know about protecting yourselves, the more we have to know about protecting you..."

Call of Catthulhu: The Great Escrape

Facilitator: 
Nicoletta De Maio

You are a cat. As such, the world has obviously been put in place for your convenience. So why then, you ask yourself, do you find yourself locked up at the local SPCA after your latest caper? What could have possessed them to go look for you, trap you in a corner and stick you in a cage next to a bunch of lowlifes that clearly deserve to be here much more than you do? All you did was chase that rat along the ledge, after all. It wasn't your fault that that flowerpot stood where it did, and that the two-foot below walked past at that precise moment.

This will not stand. You and your fellow cats haven't been guiding two-footkind according to the principles the Great Idea for the last ten millennia, subtly influencing their minds to make the world more suitable for you, just to let it come to this. This is outrageous, and clearly not the way things were intended to be. Besides, that big hairydog in the bottom row just started snoring, and it's getting on your nerves.

You're getting out of here. As fast and as quietly as possible.

The Cats of Epeiros

Facilitator: 
Ivan Towlson

Wandering the seas on the way back from the Trojan War, a group of heroes find themselves on the island of Epeiros. The tiny kingdom is prosperous, happy - and a haven for hundreds or thousands of cats. It is said that if the cats were ever to leave the town of Epeiros, it would signal doom for the kingdom. But with what fate could the capricious gods possibly threaten such a place? What secrets do the unblinking eyes of the cats conceal? And, most important, what glory would accrue to the hero who could save Epeiros from its mysterious prophecy?

Agon is a game of Greek myth, in which you cooperate with your fellow heroes to succeed in a quest, while competing with them to determine who will take their place among the stars, and whose grave will be forgotten along with their deeds.

Tooth and Claw

Facilitator: 
Angela Oliver

Once your life was one of leisure: your food served to you, so that you only needed to hunt for pleasure. There was always a warm spot to lie in, a warm lap to curl up in. Yes, life was grand.

But then, came the night of panic. A loud scream split the air, and all your humans left, taking little more with them then those extra-skins that they wear. You were forgotten, abandoned.

And now the streets lie empty, the houses cold and dark. Your belly rumbles with hunger.
And the dogs are rising up against you.

(Very) Loosely inspired by Stephen Moore's book of the same name, "Tooth and Claw" is the fate of the cats and dogs left behind when their humans are evacuated; survival of the fittest, the fastest, and the most bloody-minded.

Will the cats be able to band together, against their common adversity? Or is there worse to come?
