A Hole in the Oak / Operation Unfathomable

System: Old School Essentials (aka D&D basic from 1981)
GM: Jamie Wheeler
Description: What began with A hole in the Oak hopefully takes a new arc in Operation Unfathomable. The PCs first exploration of the mythic underworld led to death and transformation (or maybe it’s just a bit more obvious which of the PCs lean into the murderhobo lifestyle). Now as criminals compelled by the Sorcerer-King, or as willing opportunists, they will delve much deeper into the chaos at the heart of the underworld. Their mission is retrieve a powerful artefact stolen by the Sorcerer-Kings son. They will be equipped with magic in quantities and power that likely exceed their ability to use it wisely. Or, according the blurb: BEHOLD the Underworld in all its bewildering majesty as titanic Chaos Godlings and their unsavory cults make genocidal war upon each other! SEIZE eldritch artifacts and treasures far above your lowly station! THRILL as you throw the gauntlet of your life into the smug face of the unknowable and embark upon OPERATION UNFATHOMABLE!
Format: voice (and video optional), roll 20
Spaces: 6
Age Rating: 15
Content Advisories: Fantasy violence, Weird fantasy, Gonzo, (still) Fragile and inept characters.


System: Masks (PbtA)
GM: Vivek Santayana
Description: The teenage angst of going to high school is only made worse by the fact that you’re all monsters in an urban fantasy setting! This game is very much inspired by Buffy and/or Twilight. You’re all sexy vampires, werewolves, fae, demons, witches, or even humans out to fight monsters, and you’re dealing with all the messy love triangles, high school drama, and the trials and tribulations of growing up. The PCs have just thwarted a threat by an evil vampire cult, but they have heard warnings of some greater evils that lie beneath the surface of their beachside town.
Format: Zoom voice and video.
Spaces: 6
Age Rating: 15
Content Advisories: This game will be about romantic and emotional tangles between PCs who are teenagers. All PCs will be 16+ and all relationships involving PCs will only be with other teenagers. There will be romance and sex in the games.

Path of Eternal (*New*)

System: Dungeons & Dragons 5e
GM: Iain McEwan
Description: One day, a letter sealed with the crest of a golden lung dragon is delivered to you. Carefully breaking the seal and reading the letter, you find it has come from the Isles of Arcadia, a island ruled by various elven clans. The letter is signed by end elf named Morikiyo Ashina, a high ranking member of the Ashina elf clan. He makes note of your past deeds, and believes you may be of help to current issues facing the island. The ruthless and sadistic Galdrockian Empire has set its eyes upon Arcadia. Even more alarming, the invasion is being lead by the Galdrockian empress; Amanda Longshanks, an infamous Necromancer known for her hatred of elves, even earning the nickname “Hammer of the Elves.” Within the letter is a golden badge with the same gold dragon seal. Morikiyo has arranged transport for you and four other adventurers. With the seal of Clan Ashina, you will be allowed to enter Isles where Morikiyo will meet you. For your assistance, he has promised “riches beyond your wildest dreams.” Be it for the treasure, a drive to halt the Galdrockians, or some other purpose, you head to the docks and begin the journey to Arcadia.

Tale of Heroes

System: Dungeon World (PbtA)
GM: Alan Jackson
Description: Not-particularly-clever adventurers, doing adventurer things in an adventure world, full of dungeons and maybe some dragons. Using lightweight pbta d&d simulator to achieve the same kind of epic adventure with less seriousness. Collaborative setting generation, then we explore and elaborate on that foundation..
Format: Zoom video

Content Advisories: Expect violence, drama and self inflicted consequences

Tales of Old

System: Dungeons and Dragons 5e
GM: Sam
Description: Players are a part of a classic fantasy party, and will be traveling with a famous hunting group, which are skilled in finding ruins, helping towns, and naturally, hunting monsters! My hope is that RP will be a common thing, but this is for players of any level of experience, from completely new to hardcore veterans! The campaign will also follow a narrative arc, that will be revealed as the party ventures forth.
Format: Discord for Voice-only, Maptools & Hamachi for playing.

You Are in Exile

System: Dungeons & Dragons 5e
GM: Morgan Kane
Description: “Welcome, sinners and wretches, to the Underside. For your crimes against the Commonwealth and its denizens, the Meritocratic Council have sentenced you to a life of exile in these blighted lands – but, in our infinite mercy, we still offer you a chance at redemption, a chance to return home. Conduct the rites. Slay the horrors that lurk in the Underside. Earn your absolution.” Basically, I just want to try my hand at playing with battlemaps, since I only have experience with theatre-of-the-mind stuff. Hence, this – an open-world gauntlet of 10 dungeons (which you can visit in any* order over 10 weeks) to prepare for a Big Finale in week 11. Also features gratuitous use of random loot and effect tables.
Format: Discord for voice, Roll20 for dungeon maps
