An Adventure Across Ancient Lands
System: Dungeon World
GM: Brooks Elder
Description: You have all arrived here, at this strange barrow out in the wilderness. It beckons you to explore it. Who knows what wonders you might find inside? This will be a game of classic fantasy adventure, with warriors, wizards, and everything in between! As the players, you will be taking on the roles of daring adventurers, travelling across the land in pursuit of your ambitions. There will be many dangers ahead of you, and you shall have to overcome them with your sharp wit and your martial prowess if you are to succeed.
This game will be played using Dungeon World, a conversion of D&D to the PbtA system. All of the standard playbooks will be available, in addition to some cool homebrew ones. It’ll be easy to learn, and I think it should be good for folks looking to play something new or different from usual.
Format: Discord(Voice and video)
Age Rating: PG
Content Advisories: General fantasy violence and blood.
Adventures in Ravnica
System: Dungeons & Dragons 5th Edition
GM: Jackie Luu
Description: Set in the Ravnica setting where 10 guilds control almost all aspects of life in the Ecumenopolis of Ravnica, players will either lore friendly character that’s part of the guild or the players may choose to live outside the system.
The game will be a bit more combat favored but there will be plenty of RP opportunity, as well as story arc tied to player characters provided that relevant story hooks are made.
Session zero will be mostly learning a bit about the world and creating characters that tie into it.
Format: Discord (Voice), DnD Beyond, Roll20
Age Rating: 15
Content Advisories: Horror, social and cultural issues inc. racism, threats to physical and mental health. This GM provided a copy of the RPG Consent List which contains more details [link]
GM: Stephen McMorland

In this game you will play the members of a crew of Liminals, investigators, protectors, survivors, struggling to make your way while powerful Factions wage their wars.
This is an Urban Fantasy with some horror elements, there is something horrible stalking the streets of Edinburgh, can you stop it? What other horrors will you uncover while investigating various mysteries?
Format: Discord(Voice with video optional)
Age Rating: 18
Content Advisories: Some horror and fantasy violence may be in this game but no gore, the attitudes of thousand year old supernatural beings and stuffy Council of Merlin members may not be exactly in keeping with modern sensibilities and criminal shenanigans may be necessary. – but nothing real, only imaginary
System: Dungeons And Dragons 5th Edition with homebrew aspects
Description: Set 200 years in the future, the world has been engulfed in sea water, resulting in the mass extinction of life on this planet. All remaining life has fled to the tallest point on the Earth, now known as the land mass ‘Nativia’. With the great flooding came many political changes, such as the Solaran government – a ‘democratic’ organisation that controls the Nativian population, the domestication of orcs for their survival and a political/racist tension which is tied to this. Technology parallel to that of our own has developed too, phones, beepers, alarms etc. all exist, ran by magic instead of electricity.
This game will revolve around government conspiracy, capitalism and its results and most importantly; lesbian half orcs. Feel free to get creative.
Format: Discord(Voice and video), Roll20(for combat)
Age Rating: 18
Content Advisories: Drugs, alcohol, mentions of sex, explicit violence.
A Pirates Life
System: Dungeons And Dragons 5th Edition
GM: Thomas Tudor
Description: Ahoy there mateys and welcome to the Barmont archipelago, a remote set of islands away from the old continent. Its 1725, the middle of the age of pirates and the pirate lords are well on their way to wreak havoc on the Imperialist Elves. There’s a plundering to be had, or perhaps unveil ancient magitech societies, or just get drunk at the local taverna. Can your group rise to infamy and understand what it truly means to be a pirate?
This campaign will feature homebrewed renaissance firearms and cannons, also plenty of magic items will be had. Not only is this my first time DMing but it will be my first time using Foundry as well. This campaign will mostly be lighthearted and not serious and I will try to provide options to players as best I can.
Format: Discord(Voice with video optional), Foundry VTT
Age Rating: 15
Content Advisories: Blood, Terrors from the Ocean, Guns, Mentions of slavery, Imperialism.
We Didn’t Start The Fire
System: Through The Breach

This is a larger-than-life steampunk game with magic, monsters and mayhem. You can expect to investigate through a web of intrigue and villainy to discover the truth of what awaits you.
Will you cheat fate herself? Or embrace your destiny?
