The truth, or something like it

System: Ashen Stars

Authors: Piers Beckley

Deadline: March 30th

Description:

50 years ago, at the height of the Utopian era, the most powerful starship ever launched disappeared after a battle on the edge of the Bleed. Everyone on board was listed as missing, presumed dead.

Today, the lasers answer a distress call to find that the Mercator is back – and that the survivors haven’t aged a day. But how and why have they travelled through time?

Eyes of the Stone Thief

System: 13th Age

Author: Gareth Ryder-Hanrahan

Duration: 1-2 sessions

Deadline: 31st March

Description:

There’s one Living Dungeon out there that’s different, one that’s unique. It doesn’t claw its way blindly to the surface, to survive or perish as fate dictates. This dungeon is awake, aware, and cunning like some wild beast made of stone and iron.

It’s called the Stone Thief.

It hates you.

And it’s going to destroy people and things you love until you hate it too.

And then one or the other of you will have to die.

 

The New World

System: The New World

Author: Bill White

Duration: 3-4 sessions

Deadline: 31st March

Description:
The New World is a story-telling game about cultures in collision, and about the struggles of the people who are caught up in the middle of that clash. It is “slipstream” history, not quite fantasy or science fiction but not quite mainstream either, characterized by a cavalier impatience with the specifics of historical detail in favor of a license for the active exercise of the historical imagination. To play the game, players invent or choose a quasi-historical setting—an alternate reality, a parallel Earth, or a historical pastiche—to be the backdrop against which their characters strive to achieve ambitions that will allow them to bequeath some sort of legacy to the world they will leave behind them.
