Memphis

Friday 1/23 through Sunday 2/1
GMs: Ken Clary, Lian Guertin, Stephanie Paige, Joy Perkinson, Eli Stickgold

A 10-day game of modern-day magic...

The city is centered on a short bluff, along the Mississippi, at the head of the Delta, at the greatest focus of the continent's largest watershed. It is named for another city, that sat at the head of another delta, in an abandoned time.

Every seven years, they come, and this year is no exception. Some live here, but most do not. They come from near and far. The Convocation invites all of power, though most that travel are the mages. This year, the gifted will deal with greater matters than usual --- the winters are worsening, and those northern runemages who still follow the old traditions whisper of fimbulvetr, and the return of the Frost Giants. Meanwhile, a grand doom is settling upon the city, of a strength not seen since 1945 in Kyoto, when the Order of Gray Knights was able to divert the world's first nuclear strike. The auguries may be cloudy, but one thing is certain: a storm, one that will not be forgotten, is brewing.

Some will pray, some will feast, some will wander, some will speak. Memphis is a game of food and soul, of memory and horror, of treachery and faith, of power and reckoning, all bathed in mighty waters.

The game is partly inspired by the songs of Delta Rae, the most relevant of which can be found here.

London Underground

Weekend of 4/4 (Three-day game)
GMs: kbeth, Tom Boning, Haley Brandt-Erichsen

In the year 1900, London is abuzz with preparation for the upcoming World's Fair, celebrating peace at the dawn of a new millennium, the end of the Second Prusso-British War, and the hope that lean times may finally be at an end. But in the slums and hideaways of the beggar gangs, the shadow of the gleaming new Ferris Wheel is a constant reminder that the powers that be in Britain care little for the well-being of the lower classes. The Fair's construction and the thickening fog have pushed tensions to the breaking point as the gangs battle for the remaining scraps of territory left to them in the Old Quarter. Meanwhile, they must contend with the ever-present threat of wych-kin, wolves, and other beasts of the night, fighting for survival against foes beyond human understanding.

The Fair opens in three days. The Prussian diplomatic zeppelin arrives at any moment. London waits with bated breath. And something is stirring in the fog.

London, Underground is a three-day steampunk-inspired game of horror, intrigue, and Victorian values set in an alternate-universe London from the world of Chris Wooding's The Haunting of Alaizabel Cray.

Spring Guild Meeting

Weekend of 4/11
GMs: The High Council

Politics and backstabbing without character sheets!

The Lower Decks

Weekend of 4/25
GM: Sophie Monahan

The first duty of every Starfleet officer is to the truth. Scientific truth, or historical truth, or personal truth.

Scientific truth is written by an unforgiving universe of matter and energy. Scientific truth is why your friends are dead. Historical truth is written by the victors, the heroes, the politicians who got you into this in the first place. Personal truth is the only truth you have left to tell.

The long struggle is over and you.re discharged to go home. But home isn't what it used to be, and neither are you.

The Lower Decks is a one-night about loss of structure and reintegration into civilian life, set in a postwar Star Trek universe and intended as an introduction to experimental freeform LARP techniques.

X-COM: Revelations Evolved

Weekend of 5/9
GMs: Andrew Chen, Rudy Garcia

A SiK game, with more details forthcoming.
