Dread
6 of 61 of 1

(Mature content, adults only)

You wanted to do something a bit more adventurous for Spring Break. The trip was great until last night, when something mauled your guide and stole your food. Can you make it back to civilization?

Dread is a game of horror and hope. Those who play will participate in a mutual telling of an original macabre tale, featuring a unique mechanic of building suspense and horror - the Jenga tower. As blocks are pulled, the tension rises as the tower's collapse could spell certain doom for you.

FATE
4 of 51 of 1

Written by Mark Diaz Truman

Sitting at the edge of the galaxy, beyond which there is nothing—not even
the vacuum of space—lies the Dark Star. It’s large, nearly the size of a planet,
but it has no mass. It emits no light, absorbing whatever strikes it without
growing in size or density. No sensor can penetrate it. All probes that are
sent into it cease to function immediately upon entering the sphere.

Technically, the mysterious sphere is called Object 7232B. Everyone
who works at Outpost 7232B-a and the garrison of Imperial soldiers that’s
been assigned to protect that Outpost call it the Dark Star, even on official
reports to the Imperial Academy of Sciences on the Core planets.

With a war going on at the front, the characters are ace Imperial fighter pilots, assigned to the farthest reaches of the galaxy as the result of bad luck and poor choices.

After a few days on flight detail, Blue Squadron finally has some time off from running missions on behalf of the outpost scientists. Ah, time to relax with a cool drink in 10 Forward...

Pregenerated characters will be provided; no experience required.

World of Darkness
2 of 61 of 1

On a day just like today, the apocalypse finally rears its ugly head. Some blame the military, some blame scientific meddling, while others blame the creator itself. No matter what caused the catastrophe, the dead rise from their sleep with hellish fervor, mauling, mangling, and consuming the living. Humanity has entered a panic as the human race finds itself overwhelmed by terror. However, not all of them are unprepared.

By fate or pure chance, a band of survivors has found each other in the mayhem. During the very first night of this hell on earth, these people will fight to overcome, facing exhaustion, mania, and the evil cannibals that claw at their sanity.

Do you have what it takes to survive the night?

Fiasco
4 of 41 of 1

The steel chair crashes against your back with a thunderous clap, and the crowd’s roar signals you to drop and pretend you’re out. As El Diablo turns his back to signal his victory, you make your move. He never sees your finisher coming. The crowd counts with along with the referee, “1! 2! 3!” and victory is yours. You rise from the mat and raise your new championship belt overhead to an arena going mad. Professional wrestling is scripted, but it is not fake. The money, fame, and glory are all very real, and the belts still go to those who work hardest: in the gym, on the microphone, in the ring. But some work— maybe most—the fans will never see. The underhanded backroom deals, the chemicals that performers pump into their bodies, the backstabbings that aren’t a part of any angle. It takes a lot to get to the top, and a lot of people are fighting for it. So hold your new championship belt high. You earned it.

Pathfinder Adventure Card Game
3 of 61 of 1

Enter a world of adventure with the Pathfinder Adventure Card Game, a cooperative game for 1 to 4 players. Each player has a unique character composed of a deck of cards and a set of stats. Role-players will find the stats very familiar—characters have classes such as fighter, wizard, and rogue, as well as numbers that define strength, dexterity, intelligence, etc. You'll improve your character by acquiring new items, allies, spells, and weapons as you explore and overcome challenges; over time, you'll be able to customize your deck to better suit your own individual vision of your character.

For a long time, we were at war with The Jackals. But now, we’ve driven them off, and we have this – a year of relative peace. One quiet year, with which to build our community up and learn once again how to work together. Come Winter, the Frost Shepherds will arrive and we might not survive beyond that. But we don’t know about that yet. What we know is that right now, in this moment, there is an opportunity to build something.
