Dark Vigil

Dark Vigil is a post apocalyptic game set in the Victorian era, where the sun has been stolen from the sky. Things now stalk the Dark, tainted and twisted creatures that may once have been beast or human but now Corrupted by the Dark. You risk your life and humanity every time you leave the sanctuary of the Great Lanterns, but something drives you to do so. How long can you hold out against the Dark...and do you really want to?

Iron Valley

System by M. Kirin

GM: Steph

Inspired by games such as Stardew Valley and Animal Crossing; In Iron Valley you take the role of someone moving into a small community and starting their life anew. Maybe you’ll restore your family’s farm. Maybe you’ll explore the mysterious forest just beyond town. This is a game about living a cozy life with good company, one day at a time. This is a collaborative game where we will be creating a town / npcs together as well as our own characters.

Serious rating: 1/5

Crash Pandas

System by: Grant Howit

GM: Luka

You're a raccoon and you're involved in the dangerous world of illegal LA street racing. Except: you can't drive a car on your own, so you need to team up to do it. But no conferring.  Good luck!

Serious rating: 1/5

Dungeons & Dragons

System by Wizards of the Coast, written by Kai Linder

GM: Claire

While seeking shelter to survive the harsh winter, a gang of six goblins stumbled into the cave of a large and exceptionally greedy goblin called Big Boss. He’s promised shelter in his cave if the goblins can steal enough cozy things from the sleepy village of Little Humbleton to build him the comfiest nest a goblin ever did burrow into. Fail, and the goblins are out in the freezing cold with no hope. All that stands between them and survival is a snowstorm, sturdy doors, sleeping townsfolk, and an evil adventurer!

Serious rating: 2/5


System by: Monte Cooke Games

GM: Magdalene 

There have been eight previous worlds. Each world stretched across vast millennia of time. Each played host to a civilisation that rose to supremacy but eventually died or scattered, disappeared or transcended. During the time that each world flourished, those that ruled it spoke to the stars, reengineered their bodies, and mastered reality, each in their own unique way. ' Each left behind remnants. People of the new world -- the Ninth World -- sometimes call these remnants magic and who are we to say they're wrong? But most give a unique name to the legacies of the nigh-unimaginable past. They call them Numenera. WARNINGS:  sci-fi / fantasy violence and themes approximately M rating equivalent. Safety tools Lines and Veils and X-Card will be used. 

Serious rating: 3.5/5
