In case you haven’t had an opportunity to look at our schedule for the event (https://warhorn.net/events/ccgd-summer-2015/schedule/2015/09/19), here’s a list of all of our open games and their descriptions:

Dungeon Crawl Classics RPG

The elders said that once every 181 years, when the planets align, the Kith Corsairs from the Purple Planet come and raid the lands, taking goods and slaves. You laughed… and then you were taken! Can you escape and return home while the planets are aligned?

Throwdown in Chinatown!

https://warhorn.net/events/ccgd-summer-2015/schedule/2015/09/19/sessions/87970

Saturday, Sep 19, 10am-2pm (GMT-04)

Dungeon Crawl Classics RPG

System: Dungeon Crawl Classics
GM: Eric Hoffman

A gang war is underway in Chinatown, in the Dark Territory city of Brimstone. A giant ball of green flame has inexplicably destroyed an opium den. Miners have uncovered a rare, and extremely valuable sample of Demon Ore. What, if anything, do these events have in common?

Powerful forces are at work and the fate of the entire territory may hang in the balance. As reluctant agents of The Illuminati factor, Brigadier Bellows, your group of gunmen, gamblers, spellslingers and preachers must navigate the dangerous and exotic Chinatown neighborhood of Brimstone to discover who, or what, is afoot.

This is a first level DCC RPG adventure using the Black Powder, Black Magic rules and setting supplement by Stormlord Publishing. No prior experience with either is required to have a rootin-tootin good time in the Weird West!

Titansgrave: Rust & Bounty

https://warhorn.net/events/ccgd-summer-2015/schedule/2015/09/19/sessions/87969

Saturday, Sep 19, 10am-2pm (GMT-04)

System: Fantasy AGE
GM: Jamie Wood

Explore the mysterious Rust Wastes, a technological graveyard in the city-state of Nestora that promises grave danger & wondrous rewards.

No play experience needed. No materials needed. Dice, characters, and pencils will all be provided. Familiarity with the Titansgrave: The Ashes of Valkana web series is recommended, but not required.

Travels on The Whispering Road

System: Travels on The Whispering Road
GM: Brent Newhall

Want to play in a Hayao Miyazaki / Studio Ghibli movie? The Whispering Road was built to emulate the kinds of stories told in Miyazaki movies. Will you create a Rascal, a Mentor, a Special One, or an Ordinary Hero? How will he or she learn to help others?

We will create characters and a scenario during the session. I designed the game and have run it at conventions several times, so I’m very comfortable that we’ll fit the time slot.

All materials will be provided, and I’ll explain the rules as we go. You’ll need three d6s and three d8s.

For more info about the system, go to http://whisperingroad.com

If you’d like to purchase a copy of the rules, go to http://www.magcloud.com/browse/issue/793436 – It’s $10 plus shipping for the book and PDF, or $5 for just the PDF. It’s also available as a PDF on DriveThruRPG at http://rpg.drivethrustuff.com/product/137996/The-Whispering-Road

All For Love

https://warhorn.net/events/ccgd-summer-2015/schedule/2015/09/19/sessions/87960

Saturday, Sep 19, 3-7pm (GMT-04)

System: Honor + Intrigue
GM: John Appel

The Glorious Revolution is underway, and King James II and his ilk are attempting to flee England ahead of the Prince of Orange’s forces. But the beautiful actress Annabelle Cooper, true love of your life-long friend, has been kidnapped by the vile Marquis of Pevensey. Can you rescue her before this blackguard escapes to France? A cinematic swashbuckling adventure.

No experience necessary. Pregenerated characters provided. Cheesy accents optional.

Fury Road Trip

System: Atomic Highway
GM: Sean O’Connor

Who wants to play in a badass one-shot of a Mad Max style RPG set in a post-apocalyptic wasteland ruled by psychotic bands of motorheads and their gas-guzzling death machines?! THE ANSWER IS EVERYONE DOES!

The system is Atomic Highway and focuses on Wasteland Survival, Scavenging, and Vehicular Combat. It’s pretty rules-loose, cinematic, and a blast to play.

All materials will be provided by the GM

Night Witches

System: Night Witches
GM: Casey Steven Ross

We’re playing Soviet women in an all-female night bomber regiment during World War Two. We’ll be pilots, navigators, mechanics and political officers.

Our mission is to harass the German army, which has invaded our country. The war is brutal and horrific.

We fly obsolete biplanes and drop bombs on the Germans. When we don’t have bombs, we drop railroad ties. Things are desperate. It is incredibly dangerous. We fly in darkness, sometimes a dozen missions each night.

The sexist Soviet army wishes we didn’t exist and nobody expects us to succeed.

We are going to succeed anyway.

No materials or prior experience needed.

This game handles some mature subjects (sexism, gender issues), and I’m really only looking for players who can handle this without giggling the whole time or acting like jerks.

The Tertofski Twist

https://warhorn.net/events/ccgd-summer-2015/schedule/2015/09/19/sessions/87966

Saturday, Sep 19, 3-7pm (GMT-04)

System: Ashen Stars (Gumshoe System)
GM: David Wood

Tertofski Station is too far out of the mainstream to be fought over, handles no cargo interesting enough to steal or smuggle through, and doesn’t have enough mechanization for any sort of robot uprising. The only thing that makes it interesting is how boring it is. It’s certainly not the sort of place you’d expect your team of Lasers to be sent on an emergency call. Yet there you are…

Characters will be provided, and may be slightly customized.

We hope to see you all there at Games and Stuff on the 19th!

Eve of Judgment (Mummy: The Curse)

Rio de Janeiro is a city divided, its poor and dispossessed crowded into favela slums that occupy the surrounding hills and ridges. The slums are ruled by violence: armed drug gangs for the majority, and brutal occupation by police for those that become political liabilities. The Arisen concealed in the slums remain hidden, ignoring the bloodshed whenever they can and using it to hide their own struggles.
Tonight, though, the violence is targeted at them. Called back to life by their cults, the mummies of the favelas face an unknown threat with no time to prepare—cultists are dying right now, and armed men are on the way.

GM: Kevin Weaver

System: Mummy: The Curse

Timeslot: Morning (10am-2p)

Number of Players: 4

Special Notes:

Characters provided, though if you’re a Mummy fan already please feel free to bring one for approval. D10s needed but I’ll bring a lot
