Drunk Space Pirate

System: Drunk Space Pirate (Homebrew)
GM: Morgan Kane
Description: Drunk Space Pirate is a collaborative storytelling game where everyone is the GM, because I’m a profoundly lazy person. In it, you have only three stats: Drunk, Space, and Pirate. In it, there is only one immutable rule: No happy endings. You are a merry (and very intoxicated) band of outcasts, rogues, hedonists, and swashbucklers, with a knack for escaping even the most dire of situations. It is after one such situation that we begin every session, as you, the only survivors, recount the tale to anyone who’ll listen over a pint or twelve, embellishing and omitting details as you see fit. Expect a lot of “Pirates of the Carribean – but in space!”-style action comedy, a big helping of hilarious sociopathy and backstabbing bastardry, and a generous sprinkling of incredibly cheap “oh, you like this character I made up? What if I kill them in front of you?” to taste.
Format: Voice (and video, if possible), with Google Sheets for character sheets/notes.
Spaces: 5
Age Rating: 15
Content Advisories: Strong Language, Excessive Alcohol Abuse, Imitable Behaviour, Swashbuckling, Comic Violence, Incredibly Serious Violence, Incredibly Gruesome Violence That May Or May Not Still Be Really Funny Depending On Your Sense Of Humour, and Moderate-to-Severe Peril.

For the Honour of Grayskull

System: For the Honour (Firebrand Framework)
GM: Vivek Santayana
Description: Set in the She-Ra and the Princess of Power universe, this game will centre on descendants of Etheria when, like many times in the past, it is being torn apart by conflict. We will play members of the Rebellion, Princesses of Power, or other people of Etheria who are rising up against the tyranny of a new evil, alongside the mythical She Ra. For the Honour is a GM-less, narrative-focussed game driven by a series of collaborative mini-games in telling the story and resolving the stakes. We will be able to define the core aspects of the setting during the character gen. Our characters will be high-powered protagonists, strong like the steel we carry as we rise like the sun, and we will negotiate inner conflicts, inter-personal relationships, and complex moralities as we fight for justice and for the Rebellion. We must be strong. We must be brave. And we must find every bit of strength and never let it go. The tone will be like the TV show, and no prior knowledge of the minutiae or lore required.
Format: Zoom voice and video.
Spaces: 3 to 4
Age Rating: PG
Content Advisories: We will not have any real-world discrimination, nor will we have any homophobia or prejudice towards different sexual orientations and gender identities. There will be themes of colonialism and there may be themes of discrimination abstracted along fantasy races as a result. There will likely be themes of romance and emotional manipulation.

The Good, The Bad, and the Players

System: Deadlands: the Weird West
GM: Craig Barnes
Description: Saddle up cowpokes and get ready for and adventure spanning across the Weird West. There critters that’ll bite your arm off, bandits that’ll rob ya blind and vast stretches of wilderness that don’t take kindly to strangers.
And if that wasn’t enough there’s talk of all sorts of strange happenings that defy science herself. Superstitious folks claim that a dark magic is growing in the frontier. But you don’t believe that. Do you partner?
Deadlands is a game of dark magic and mad steampunk inspired science. You can play poker with demons for magical powers, build shrink rays and cryo bombs, or just get real good with your shooting iron.
This will be a relativity open ended game with lots of action and some light horror themes.
Format: Webcams Aren’t Required
Spaces: 6
Age Rating: 15
Content Advisories: There’s some light horror but any specific fears can be avoided easily if you let me know at the water of the campaign. The setting has a lot of things built in to allow characters of any gender or race to play without discrimination despite the time period.


System: Exodus
GM: Alexander Kiker
Description: You are members of a small group of adventurers, about a dozen or so companions who have known each other for years and been on many adventures together. A recent mission to an abandoned tower provided you with more questions than answers, so you have decided to pursue the leads discovered in ancient journals in the hopes of finding more knowledge, and perhaps more treasure.
The game will be in a fantasy setting, with themes of exploration and discovery, companionship and family, and a strong focus on collaborative storytelling.
Format: Voice and Video
Spaces: 3
Age Rating: PG
Content Advisories: The game may touch on the meaning of life and inevitability of death, and slavery exists within the fantasy world.

Neon Lords of Rust City

System: Cyberpunk 2020
GM: Milo van Mesdag
Description: As new arrivals in Rust City, you are plunged straight into the heart of a roiling mass of factions, politics and schemes.  This will be an open-world game, the story will be completely up to you and how you react to the complex, morally grey streets of Rust City.  It will also be a very combat-light game: getting your gun out should always be the last resort (unless you really like making new characters).
Also, while I am using the Cyberpunk 2020 system, I don’t like it (and don’t like rule-heavy systems in general) so I’ll probably end up playing a bit fast and loose with it.  I focus on story and character, rather than mechanics.
Format: Video, and I may be using Roll20 occasionally.
Spaces: 7
Age Rating: 18
Content Advisories: This will mostly depend on the players, but classic cyberpunk themes of sex, drugs and body modification will be unavoidable.


System: DWN (Homebrewed Narrative Limited Dice)
GM: Matthew Barrowcliffe
Description: The city of Stormveil and its golden spires lies on the edge of the kingdoms against the Storm Veil desert. It guards the high mountains and is accessible only by narrow paths, the great cable cars, or by zeppelins. Here in the shining spires and the built up town around them a cosmopolitan  people live, many refugees and many cultures all crammed into the winding streets that surround the spires of Stormveil castle. Beyond the Storm Veil desert lie the ever changing forces of the abyss, the swirling pools of chaos, the secrets of infinite knowledge, and the demonically charged enemies of order. Stormveil holds the line, guarding the kingdoms with its cannons, and wards, and people.
Format: Personal Discord – Backup Webex – Vision and Sound
Spaces: 3 to 5
Age Rating: 15
Content Advisories: Survival, Mystery, Discovery.

A Tale of Heroes

System: Homebrew
GM: Alan Jackson
Description: Once upon a time, it was a fantasy land of storybook grandeur. Ruled by the Good King and the Wise Queen, with heroes like the Old Sage and Bold Knight supporting. Against them stood the Dark Lord, the Sinister Sorceress and so on. Famous roles, of grand stories.
Now, they are gone.
The power of story has shattered,  scattered over hundreds of candidates. People with touches of story, possibilities for greatness.
You are some of them. What will you do with this potential?
Your group has chosen to be the heroes of a community. It’s fate is your fate. How will the story of them, and thus you grow.
Format: Zooooooooooooom. Video
Spaces: 3 to 4
Age Rating: 15
Content Advisories: Violence. Consequential Moral choices

Vampire: The Masquerade – Nobody’s Home

System: Vampire: the Masquerade 5e
GM: Craig Oxbrow
Description: Vampire: The Masquerade is a game of modern horror, set in a world that looks like our own but where monsters hide in the shadows. Knowledge of the setting and system is not required, the system is straightforward and the setting is full of secrets.
Your characters are new to the night in a city where a new vampire ‘Prince’ has seized power, leaving the Damned fighting amongst themselves. The oldest cling to their power, the youngest fight for their survival.
Can the prince hold the throne? Or can you tear it down?
Format: Voice or video, with GEAS dice bot or rolling at home
Spaces: 4 to 6
Age Rating: 15
Content Advisories: Blood, violence, horror


System: Homebrew dice pool (Witches)
GM: Angus Barker
Description: The Marshes are a strange place. Ever shifting and saturated with magic, they are a place where the lines between the living and the dead are blurred; home to all manner of spectres, dark spirits and little nameless gods. And to you, of course.
You are a group of witches, folk magicians and other assorted practitioners of magic who make your homes in the clustered little communities that litter the Marshes. For the past few years you have found yourselves caught up, willingly or otherwise, in an insurgency against the forces that would seek to subjugate this place. The rulers of the City would see the Marshes and its people subdued or simply wiped away. What stands in the way of the end of your way of life are a few scattered and disorganised bands of guerilla fighters of questionable competence. That’s you. Good luck.
Format: Discord video call and online dice roller or rolling at home

Age Rating: 15
Content Advisories: Mild horror, violence, some state brutality. Some of the more grizzly aspects of magic such as haruspicy, blood magic, animal sacrifice and necromancy, though I’m happy to be as vague about the details as is necessary for people to feel comfortable.

The Yellow King: Paris

System: Yellow King RPG (Gumshoe)
GM: Angus Balkham
Description: Bohemian art students investigate the absinthe-soaked demimonde of 1890s Paris as the reality-warping effects of a decadent new play spread through the city. Inspired by Chambers’ collection of short stories, this game of reality horror is rules-light and setting-rich, focussing on investigating bizarre and sometimes grizzly matters in the shadows of the city of lights.
Although player characters can succumb to horrific fates, gore and other unpleasantness will generally occur off-screen.
Players new to RPGs are very welcome.
Format: Video, Discord only
