“Eschatology Code”
Teen-friendly (13+)

You’re an operative of the Estate, a secretive organization that monitors activity on Earth that originates in alternate recursions and, generally speaking, puts a stop to it for Earth’s safety.

Your Mission? Investigate a priest who claims the end of the world is nigh. This Father Foss began publicly counting down to the “End of Days” a few weeks ago. Of course, crackpot evangelists do that all the time, but in this case, local televised news reports showed him pulling off several tricks that bamboozled the local media. A few reporters went so far as to call the tricks actual miracles.

But you know a lot more than local reporters, and if you don’t get to the bottom of this quick, Father Foss just might be right about the End of Days.

No experience necessary, simple rules taught at the table, and characters provided. Bring a writing implement, d20, d6, and optionally some percentile dice.

“Devil Take The Hindmost”
Teen-friendly (13+)

They killed the dominant and they took your pups. Life was hard enough after the two-legs burned the forest and ate most of the herds, but you gnawed at the bones they left behind and kept the pack alive. Sometimes you even caught some of them alone, and the eating was... good enough. But then they came back. They even had some of your folk with them: slaves with collars and coats of steel who'd never known the moon or the hunt. And they killed the dominant and they took your pups — to make them slaves, too.

But tonight you will hunt. You will get your pups. And the two-legs and their slaves will pay.

Burning Wheel is a game about fighting for your character's beliefs — it rewards passionate play, and will quite possibly pit you against both friend and foe. Characters will be provided and rules will be taught. Bring a pencil and a handful (i.e., 7-10) of 6-sided dice.

“The Chaos of Void”
Adults-Only (17+)

I WAS A TEENAGE CREATURE is a narrative-focused, urban fantasy RPG where it doesn't matter how strong your werewolf is, or how fast his vampire is, or how beautiful her fae is... what matters is how these characters feel; WHY they're doing something, not just how capable they are of doing it. What keeps the viewers of Buffy or Teen Wolf or any other young adult urban fantasy TV show coming back every episode — is it the monster of the week? No, it's the characters and the angst and drama of their lives. Come play a character on such a show, struggling with what it means to be human as well as coming of age and facing things that go bump in the night. Pre-gen characters will be provided and all rules taught.
