6108 Paragraph System: Merlinspawn, GM: David Vandenabeele, 5 players, No XP/Average, Friday 9a-2p. Merlinspawn is set in Victorian England in 1876. Three or four generations ago, Merlin of Camelot returned to London, and magic came with him. Hand in hand with that, revolutions in industry and science began. In the century since this flowering, the world now sees alchemists and diviners working for Scotland Yard. Magical courses being taught at prominent universities, and feats of invention that seem almost magical themselves are becoming visible, if not commonplace. To keep the realm safe, Queen Victoria and her representatives have gathered together people of diverse talents. You are one of these heroes. Perhaps you are a gentle adventurer, possessing mundane skills honed to incredible levels. The gift of magic may be yours to command. You may be a being of legend, gifted (or cursed) with abilities that make you more (and perhaps less) than human. Invention and science may be your gift - or your curse, if what you create works only in your hands. So far, I have among our PC cast a golem, a shapeshifter, several immortals of various stripes, two or three half or full-blooded Fey, more than a few "mundane" adventurers, a handful of magicians with various specialties, a pair of mediums - each with their own relationship with the spirits of the dead, and a few scientists - an animator, a master of etheric engines, and a four-armed cyborg who cheats at cards. Adults Only (18+) Conference F Table 1. $4.00

6127 Macchiato Monsters: Tomb of the Iron God, GM: Brett Slocum, 6 players, No XP/Simple, Friday 9a-1p.

Family Friendly (7+) Conference H Table 1. $4.00

6178 Lamentations of the Flame Princess: The Temple of Laserface and the Kung-Fu Masters of the Fourth Dimension, GM: Dan Domme, 6 players, No XP/Average, Friday 9a-1p. You stand at the foot of an esoteric temple of a long-forgotten super-civilization. Its sudden appearance about a fortnight ago coincides with the mysterious disappearances of your fellow countrymen. Maybe you're here for answers, or simply the treasures that are surely within. But Laserface stands in your way. General Audience (13+) Conference H Table 5. $4.00

6188 Metamorphosis Alpha: Red Shirts Victorious--cancelled, GM: Larry Hamilton, 0 players, No XP/Average, Friday 9a-1p.

6460 Dungeon Crawl Classics: Cave of Glurg, GM: Kevin Wojciechowski, 10 players, No XP/Average, Friday 9a-1p. This DCC funnel adventure will pit you and your even more pitiful commoners against cunning runt like vermin found in the first cavern opening along oft cursed Valley of Uro. The Uro Valley was once home to a mix of happy folk, but long ago creatures lead by the Glade Mystic invaded and lay havoc and ruin unto it. Survivors fled and resettled elsewhere, but as time went on they edged closer to the valley, forgetting or ignoring those old codgers who spoke of the curse. Something has awakened the curse, for recently the closest villages have been burned and gutted, their survivors swelling your village and a few others nearby. A sizable group of warriors sent by the Lord of the Vale were seen heading in the direction of the monstrous host just 10 days earlier. The latest refugees fled from a large bestial man-creature wearing the skin of the Lords champion about its waist. It's at this point you realize it is time to fight or die, you've gathered what fighting implements you can and the bravest of you set forth toward the cursed valley. General Audience (13+) Conference H Table 3. $4.00

6474 Fiasco: Tekumel: A Vindication of Instability - Cancelled, GM: George Hammond, 0 players, No XP/Simple, Friday 9a-1p. Fiasco is inspired by cinematic tales of small time capers gone disastrously wrong – inspired by films like Blood Simple, Fargo, The Way of the Gun, Burn After Reading, and A Simple Plan. You’ll play ordinary people with powerful ambition and poor impulse control, big dreams but flawed means. It won’t go well for them, to put it mildly, and will probably end in a glorious heap of jealousy, murder, impalement and recrimination. Lives and reputations will be lost, painful wisdom will be gained, and if you are really very lucky, your character just might end up back where he started. This is a GM-less game. We will use a playset custom-made for Tékumel . Players are not expected to have any experience with the Fiasco rules, but should have some familiarity with the Tékumel setting. Adults Only (18+) Seminar 5. $4.00

He’s holding a man in his jail exhibiting some rather...extraordinary behaviors. The man attacked a young girl before he was discovered. He was found...well...gnawing on part of her leg!

6909 Dungeon Crawl Classics : DCC: The Accursed Heart, GM: Brendan LaSalle, 7 players, No XP/Simple, Friday 9a-1p. You're no hero.

You seek gold and glory, winning it with sword and spell, caked in the blood and filth of the weak, the dark, the demons, and the vanquished. There are treasures to be won deep underneath, and you shall have them.... The journey before you holds great risks. Your very humanity could be stripped away, your body deformed, your mind erased, your soul snatched away. But if the prophecies be true, one shall walk away with cosmic power and the key to a world of riches. Will it be you? This is a zero-level funnel. General Audience (13+) Conference H Table 7. $4.00

The missionaries of the Red Moon carry Her sacred message of peace and inclusion throughout the land from the spires of Boldhome in the East to the beast-man town of Duck Point in the west. In that ancient city an uneasy tension persists between pensioned Legionaries hoping to reap the economic rewards of conquest, outcast barbarians who have fled their tribal lands and beast men from the far west who claim the territory as their own. And there, amongst the muck and mud of the banks of the Stream, a stick-picking peasant just found the bones of a most senior Imperial citizen. Now the magistrate of Duck Point has turned to you, asking for aid in untangling this murder and helping keep the fragile peace. Who are you to command such respect from a magistrate of the Empire?

There are resources here, though they'll run out soon. If only you had a doctor, you think. If only you'd made it to the base. If only. If only.

Do you protect the weak and innocent, or do you weed them out? Let's find out as the next wave of zombies hits the fences. Eric Todd's _In Extremis_ is a diceless storytelling system in which players develop a shared pool of tragic, heroic, venal, helpless characters (think the survivors in The Walking Dead or Pitch Black) and play out the scenes of their story leading to the epic "season finale" episode. We could use any disaster or scenario that pits survivors against terrible odds, but for familiarity, we'll use a Zombie plague. Adults Only (18+) Seminar 2. $4.00

6109 Paragraph System: Merlinspawn, GM: David Vandenabeele, 5 players, No XP/Average, Friday 7p-12a. Merlinspawn is set in Victorian England in 1876. Three or four generations ago, Merlin of Camelot returned to London, and magic came with him. Hand in hand with that, revolutions in industry and science began. In the century since this flowering, the world now sees alchemists and diviners working for Scotland Yard. Magical courses being taught at prominent universities, and feats of invention that seem almost magical themselves are becoming visible, if not commonplace. To keep the realm safe, Queen Victoria and her representatives have gathered together people of diverse talents. You are one of these heroes. Perhaps you are a gentle adventurer, possessing mundane skills honed to incredible levels. The gift of magic may be yours to command. You may be a being of legend, gifted (or cursed) with abilities that make you more (and perhaps less) than human. Invention and science may be your gift - or your curse, if what you create works only in your hands. So far, I have among our PC cast a golem, a shapeshifter, several immortals of various stripes, two or three half or full-blooded Fey, more than a few "mundane" adventurers, a handful of magicians with various specialties, a pair of mediums - each with their own relationship with the spirits of the dead, and a few scientists - an animator, a master of etheric engines, and a four-armed cyborg who cheats at cards.

The Republic wants the scientist recovered and protected at all costs. The schematics and prototype cannot fall into the wrong hands. Will you be able to extract the scientist, recover the technology, and discover who's responsible? Of course, it could be a trap... General Audience (13+) Conference E Table 6. $4.00

6248 Heroquest: Glorantha: Last Night in Roadend, GM: Robert Ahrens, 4 players, No XP/Simple, Friday 7p-11p. Everyone knows that tomorrow Roadend fort will fall to the besieging Lunar army. Tonight, everyone inside the fort is desperately scrambling to finish their personal agenda … including you. Thirty years ago, King Tarkalor Troll-Killer defeated the Kitori tribe, who had become corrupted by dark Troll magics. He extended the King’s Road south from Wilmskirk to Whitewall and he built Roadend fort where the old road had ended to defend travellers from the surviving Kitori rebels in the hills. Today, the land is under a new threat - the Chaos-worshipping Lunar Empire invades from the north and its bronze-clad legions are everywhere. Now Roadend is one of the last bastions against Lunarism and under siege from a combined force of Lunar peltasts and a mercenary force led by Duke Sanuel of Volsaxiland. After a long siege the defences are stretched thin and supplies of food and water are dangerously low. You are one of those inside Roadend. But why are you there? What is your purpose? And what will you do on this last day, now that the writing is on the wall? Heroquest is a story-oriented roleplaying game that allows any contest to play out with the same detail and intensity as a combat. This game will use the kickers-and-bangs style of play to put the player characters, and the stories you create for them, at the center of the action. No prior knowledge of Heroquest, or Glorantha or roleplaying is necessary to participate but those who like reading up on things may find the following links helpful: The Dragon Pass setting of Glorantha: http://www.glorantha.com/docs/dragon-pass/ Review of Heroquest Glorantha RPG: https://www.rpg.net/reviews/archive/16/16547.phtml General Audience (13+) Conference E Table 5. $4.00

6111 Paragraph System: Merlinspawn, GM: David Vandenabeele, 5 players, No XP/Average, Saturday 7p-12a. Merlinspawn is set in Victorian England in 1876. Three or four generations ago, Merlin of Camelot returned to London, and magic came with him. Hand in hand with that, revolutions in industry and science began. In the century since this flowering, the world now sees alchemists and diviners working for Scotland Yard. Magical courses being taught at prominent universities, and feats of invention that seem almost magical themselves are becoming visible, if not commonplace. To keep the realm safe, Queen Victoria and her representatives have gathered together people of diverse talents. You are one of these heroes. Perhaps you are a gentle adventurer, possessing mundane skills honed to incredible levels. The gift of magic may be yours to command. You may be a being of legend, gifted (or cursed) with abilities that make you more (and perhaps less) than human. Invention and science may be your gift - or your curse, if what you create works only in your hands. So far, I have among our PC cast a golem, a shapeshifter, several immortals of various stripes, two or three half or full-blooded Fey, more than a few "mundane" adventurers, a handful of magicians with various specialties, a pair of mediums - each with their own relationship with the spirits of the dead, and a few scientists - an animator, a master of etheric engines, and a four-armed cyborg who cheats at cards.

Because really, who else would be digging up artifacts of great power? You've been tasked with diving into one of these tombs and securing the artifact before the Reich can claim it for their own. Unlike The Free Wolves: The Resistance, Temple of the Crystal Staff won't focus as much on LGBT issues and race, though diverse characters are still strongly encouraged.

"Know, O prince, that between the years when the oceans drank Atlantis and the gleaming cities, and the years of the rise of the Sons of Aryas, there was an Age undreamed of, when shining kingdoms lay spread across the world like blue mantles beneath the stars. Hither came Conan the Cimmerian, black-haired, sullen-eyed, sword in hand, a thief, a reaver, a slayer, with gigantic melancholies and gigantic mirth, to tread the jeweled thrones of the Earth under his sandalled feet." On the far edge of the Young Kingdoms, deep in the thick jungle, lie the ruins of a once-great kindgom. Legend tells of the noibuluscus, "the black anemone," that blooms once a century in the ruins. Tales of its curative power have the last prince of Melnibone, the architect of that ancient kingdom's destruction, and his companion, Moonglum, to the world's edge. Prince Elric seeks a cure for the silverskin, the condition that leaves him weak and dependent on the runeblade, Stormbringer, which he is certain can only bring him more pain and doom his soul. Elric and Moonglum are not alone in the search for the ancient ruins of Soom. A band of mercenaries and the nobles that hired them are also preparing an expedition to the great city. One stands tall among the mercenaries, a raven-haired barbarian from a far-off land. Shipwrecked on these strange shores, Conan the Barbarian, has found that even amongst the strange people of the Young Kingdoms, gold can buy much and the Princesses who hired him are offering a lot of gold. The dangers of the jungle are great and working together may be the only way to survive the journey down the river and solve the mystery of the black petals of the noibuluscus and the doom of the great kingdom of Soom.
