Bunny Heist: The Carrot Caper

System: Honey Heist
GM: Duncan Henley-Washford
Description: A bunch of bunnies… stealing carrots… weighing up their morality/criminality with their bunny nature… standard stuff really.

Format: Discord voice, potentially Roll20
Spaces: 6
Age Rating: 15
Content Advisories: Very much co-operative storytelling, so determined by players. BUT whacky violence and potential strong language to be expected. Any additional lines and veils will be established before starting.

Call Me Maybe

System: Boy Problems: the Carly Rae Jepsen RPG
GM: Vivek Santayana
Description: All of Carly Rae Jepsen’s music has been stolen, especially her vault of 200 unreleased songs for future release. All of you are going on a heist to steal the master records back. You’re all specialists with impeccable knowledge and expertise on crime and pop music. This is a rules light one page RPG. It’s all fairly cheesy and simple, and the idea is we have a fun and wacky ride.

Format: Zoom, Discord to roll dice
Spaces: 3-5
Age Rating: PG
Content Advisories: May contain romance

Everyone is… Warlock edition

System: Everyone is John
GM: Rowan Edmunds
Description: You are a patron, cursed item, mind trapped in a magic ring, ghost looking to possess an unwitting adventurer etc. A rogue warlock has contracted you, picked you up, been possessed by you and now you are all trapped in their head, together. You have goals, quirks and you will not let the morons trapped here with you keep you from achieving your dreams!

Format: Voice, video and MS paint where necessary
Spaces: 3-10
Age Rating: 15
Content Advisories: There will be themes of mental illness due to the system, Injury, usually self-inflicted by incompetence, I will avoid any trigger topics other than these if requested.

Jackelope Jamboree

System: Deadlands: The Weird West
GM: Craig Barnes
Description: Howdey Partner, Welcome to the 3rd annual Jamestown Jamboree! Best Party in all of Texas! Now don’t y’all be minding those nasty rumours about accidents and such,That’s just folks trying to get a rise out of ya. Now just get on in there and enjoy yourselves, I promise it’ll be the night of your life!

In a wild west filled with creatures straight out of your nightmares, the Texas rangers are all that keep the good people of the south safe from harm. When they heard about a series of unlucky accidents coming from the small village Jamestown they were unfazed. But now there’s reports of strange looking fellas out on the prairie, people getting in real unlikely situations, and worst of all, rabbits, lots and lots of rabbits.

You’re saddled up and heading west. The question is, are you feeling lucky?

Content Advisories: Light horror


System: Trophy Dark
GM: Jamie Wheeler
Description: The fairies of the woods promise a gift to anyone who can find them:
The Great Mycelium holds an army of slaves who will do whatever
you like. They can act as soldiers, scribes, or servants — anything
their master desires. They never tire, never need to eat or drink, and
are powered by shadow and a drop of water. You set out into the
forest to find the Great Mycelium and take its army for yourself.

Format: Video preferred but not required.

Under Blackford Hill

System: The Warren
GM: Charlie Barker
Description: “All the world will be your enemy, Prince with a Thousand Enemies, and whenever they catch you, they will kill you. But first they must catch you, digger, listener, runner, prince with the swift warning. Be cunning and full of tricks and your people shall never be destroyed.”

‘The Warren’ is a Watership Down-influenced Apocalypse World hack about rabbits. You’ll be doing some things that rabbits don’t do, like talking, but mostly you’ll be doing things that rabbits do do, like running, eating, possibly breeding and probably dying.

The system is light & fun, with a flexible approach to playbooks (i.e. classes), that will allow you to very quickly become the bunny you’ve always wanted to be. The tone will be similar to that of Watership Down with rabbits fluffy in tail and floppy in ear but also sometimes red in tooth and claw.

The game will be set in Edinburgh during Easter 2020 – how’s THAT for escapism?

Format: Video & some screen sharing.
