Content Advisories: Fantasy violence, death and danger, Lovecraft “Too big” style horror


System: Dungeons & Dragons 5th Edition with homebrew aspects
GM: Tay
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)

Tales Composed in Theros

System: Dungeons & Dragons 5th Edition
GM: Jackie Luu
Description: Theros is a magic setting inspired by Greek Mythology in which the players will act as champions for gods of their choosing. There will be some recreation of some classic tales from various mythology as well as some hopefully original tales.

I like to create a story around the character the player make so the story will be build with with players pushing towards a direction in which the characters may or may not achieve their individual goals while working together for a common purpose.

Sagas of the Icelanders

System: Sagas of the Icelanders (PbtA)
GM: Joe Mclaughlin
Description: “One day Thord asked Gudrun what consequences it could have for
a woman if she wore trousers like the men. Gudrun answered:
“Same as for men who wear shirts cut so low their nipples can
be seen – both are grounds for divorce.” Thord made his way to the
Law Rock,and announced he was divorcing Aud…

The following summer Aud rode to the house and entered the bed
closet where Thord slept. She drew her sword and struck him a great blow…”

Set in 10th century Iceland, Players play newly arrived Norse settlers who must struggle against the inhospitable landscape, rival clans and tensions within your own family. It is a harsh, cruel medieval soap opera where honour is king, and death is preferable to losing it.

While Male and Female PCs are equally respected, Norse society narrowly defined gender role. Men are to defend their honour, often violently, against any slight and avoid appearing “effeminate” at all costs. Women are expected to administer the household, to speak sense when the men are squabbling and wield magic. How PCs interact with and challenge these oppressive expectations is a major theme of the game, a Shieldmaiden will have a very different experience than a male huscarl.
Format: Discord, Voice only
Spaces: 5
Age Rating: 15
Content Advisories: PC’s will be subject to, and struggle against, the rather strict social expectations Norse society places upon them based on their gender, slavery is a feature of Norse society, Violence is likely but probably intermittent, references to real world religions, homophobia and the questioning of masculinity, Extreme weather and harsh climate are constant threats, starvation and disease are likely to come up, references to pregnancy are likely.

Vampire: The Final Night’s

System: Vampire the Masquerade 5th Edition
GM: Craig Barnes
Description: Join together with your fellow vampires to survive the apocalypse. There will be political scheming, monsters, magic, and if you do a good job, maybe even survival.
In this game you and your fellow players will take on the roll of vampires living within the complex political ecosystem of a fictional city we shall build together. And then things will start to get… bad. The end times are arriving and it will take everything at your disposal to get out alive, and maybe with a little luck you can even save the day.
Do you have what it takes to survive the final nights?
