12 Virtues of Krynn

System: Dungeons & Dragons 5th Edition
GM: Roderick Easton
Description: 350 years ago mortal hubris reached its height… and was struck down. The gods shattered the land by dropping a Fiery Mountain on the city of Istar and then turned their backs on the world. With them went divine and healing magic. Now, a group of adventurers meet in search of the Gods and their magic, while an oppressive empire rises in the world.
This is an adaptation of the Dragonlance Campaign 15th Anniversary Edition. As well as updating to the current ruleset, I have replaced the traditional alignment system with one of diverse virtues where there is no absolute Good or Evil.
Format: Discord(Voice), Roll 20

Content Advisories: Corruption, oppressed minorities, potentially bad family relationships.

The 19th Level

System: Homebrew
GM: YY Hutchison
Description: Welcome to the Midnight City, a place where vagrant spirits, demons and ghouls of all kinds revel under the lights of a thousand lanterns. It exists at twilight in the mortal world, ruled over by the fearsome and elusive Ghost Empress.

Word has it that deities have been mingling amongst your kind as of late – but you don’t believe it until you come across a mysterious stranger. He dons a black cloak and a wry smile, half-hidden by the veil of his bamboo hat. The stranger gives you a waist-card carved out of peach wood. And then he is gone.

This waist-card is the key to the nineteenth level of Hell. A level which does not exist.

Just then, a commotion can be heard: the guards of Hell are conducting a raid, grabbing everyone in sight and escorting them to the infernal gates. You are caught, and are now waiting to stand trial for your mortal sins.

In this game, you will have the chance to tour every realm: the mortal, the divine and the infernal. Can you escape the underworld? Will you reach the 19th level, and what lies beyond it?

(Genres: Xian-Xia (Chinese Fantasy), Adventure, Dark Comedy, Supernatural Horror.)

Content Advisories: As this game will take place largely in hell, it will have considerable themes of violence, death, supernatural horror and gore – although descriptions will not be very graphic. Players will be asked to inform the DM of their triggers beforehand so that extra care may be taken to avoid these during the game. There will also be a T-card system in place where players can flag the DM if they are uncomfortable, and we will take a time-out.


System: Dungeon World
GM: Brooks Elder
Description: A legendary band of heroes awaken from a magical slumber and find themselves in a world very different to the one they remember. They’ll adventure across the land, uncovering ancient secrets and searching for purpose in this new world. Think ‘Breath of the Wild’ meets Arthurian legend.
Format: It’ll be via a Discord voice call. Video is nice, but not required.
Spaces: 6
Age Rating: 12
Content Advisories: Fantasy violence, scary monsters.

Curse of Strahd (Maya)

System: Dungeons & Dragons 5th Edition
GM: Maya Beauchamp
Description: Bats screech, wolves howl, and innocents cower from the darkness that threatens to stamp out the light – and over this Gothic landscape of Barovia rules the enigmatic vampire lord Count Strahd von Zarovich. How will your heroes prevail in a world filled with monsters, madness, and basically just Evil things occurring? Excellent for fans of vampire films, Tim Burton movies, supernatural horror and dark fantasy.

Curse of Strahd is a Gothic Horror campaign set in a world of shadowy forests, terrifying monsters, suspicion, intrigue, and basically anything you could find in an even more messed up version of a Tim Burton movie. While there is plenty of light to balance out the dark, the campaign can get very dark if pushed that way, but in session 0 we can discuss what players are comfortable with and tone down anything that would stop people enjoying the game.

Content Advisories: Strong fantasy violence, manipulation/abuse, murder, racism, mental illness, child abuse, animal cruelty, body horror, alcoholism, drug abuse, torture. All content warnings can be discussed and made lines or veils as appropriate to ensure everyone can still have fun despite the grim setting! So don’t worry if any of that seems offputting, we can work it out of the plotline with relative ease.

Curse of Strahd (Graham)

System: Dungeons & Dragons 5th Edition
GM: Graham Hunt
Description: Curse of Strahd is a gothic horror adventure that takes players from levels 1-10 in the dreary land of Barovia. Count Strahd von Zarovich is the master of this realm in his castle Ravenloft, a classic dnd adventure. While Barovia may be grim, there are numerous places to explore, allies to win over, and enemies lurking around every corner. Barovia is also a very isolated place, so don’t expect to be able to waltz into a shop and find exactly what you want. This adventure is about survival in a land that is trying to kill you!
Format: Video with Roll20 or in person

Content Advisories: Gothic horror, suicide, murder, blood and gore.

Star Wars Indie Anthology

System: Various Indie RPGs
GM: Vivek Santayana
Description: The Star Wars universe encompasses a broad range of genres and settings. This campaign will hop across different genres within this universe using a series of different indie RPG systems for each session and/or arcs (with roughly two to three weeks per system). We will use the same characters across different systems, and be very flexible with the setting and timeline to accommodate this.

Possible settings include a traditional space opera adventure using Impulse Drive, a session about rebellion pilot space battles using Rebel Blackbird, a cyberpunk heist in the underbelly of Coruscant using Remember Tomorrow, solving mysteries of the Force using Cthulhu Dark, and a game about religious fundamentalist law enforcers in the frontier using Dogs in the Vineyard.

The campaign will be about exploring how the same characters engage with and respond to the different political and ethical questions across different genres and contexts in interesting ways, and how the big picture conflict across the galaxy against space fascism interacts with local power struggles in the grass roots. It will also be to try out a bunch of different indie systems.

No prior knowledge of Star Wars outside of the 9 mainline films is required, and we will be playing incredibly fast and loose with the canon.
Format: Discord for dice, Zoom for voice and video, Google Docs for paperwork
Spaces: 5
Age Rating: PG
Content Advisories: Themes of colonialism, slavery, war, fascism, and genocide likely to be present in the setting.

Strixhaven: Curriculum of Chaos

System: Dungeons & Dragons 5th Edition
GM: Jack
Description: A game set on the University Campus of the interdimensional, famed respected and mutluniversally recognised Strixhaven Academy of the Magical Arts, most likely to contain exams, pub crawls, young love and the most spetacular magical developements and innovations ever seen across the multiverse and most definitely not a secret scheme behind the scenes to destory the school. Magical university hijinks and tomfoolery are expected and encouraged. (Mostly just pinching the setting and some inspiration so things could go very wild indeed)
Format: Discord (Voice Only)
Spaces: 6 (2 reserved)
Age Rating: PG
Content Advisories:

Vampire: The Masquerade – Noctune

System: Vampire: The Masquerade 5th Edition
GM: Craig Oxbrow
Description: Vampire: The Masquerade is a storytelling game of personal horror, playing as people drawn into a society of monsters hunting in the shadows of a world that looks like our own. Knowledge of the system and setting is not required, the system is straightforward and characters can be new to the night.

The game is set in a city where vampire elders fight over power and the young have a chance to make their own fate.

Expect personal connections to humanity complicating existence as a vampire, mysteries and conspiracies, some violence though not much action, in a backdrop of dark alleys, nightclubs, galleries and graveyards.
Format: Discord(Voice with optional video)
Spaces: 3-5
Age Rating: 15
Content Advisories: Blood, violence.

Wraith: The Oblivion

System: World of Darkness d10 Storyteller system
GM: David
Description: You have died, but you have not passed on. You still have work to do, perhaps it’s to help a loved one, to deliver a message, to get revenge, or learn the truth behind your death. You are not alone, your death splits you into two distinct personalities, the part that hopes and has passion, your psyche, and the darker side that wants to tare down, your shadow.
You play as your wraith’s psyche, but also as another player’s shadow, whispering dark thoughts or pleasing little lies. The shadow feels the call to oblivion and with it the desire to take down everything the wraith holds dear. The shadowlands are a harsh environment filled with wraiths from centuries gone by, but how many of them have succumbed to their shadows? Some speak of transcendence, where a wraith can resolve their business and finally pass on, but is it real?
Format: Discord(Voice and video), Roll20
Spaces: 4
Age Rating: 18
Content Advisories: Death, paranoia, deception, enslavement, horror, deep emotion, trauma. We will brief and debrief before each session and make good use of safety tools. Some parts of the setting can be curbed or removed entirely if desired.
