System: Best Left Buried
GM: Stephen Blythe

As officers of The Peekers, the Great Lunden city watch, you’ve been charged with searching your ward in case “The Finger Eater” is hiding there. You’re hoping he isn’t – you’re fond of your fingers and would like to keep them! Surely he will have fled the city. But then nothing is quite as you would expect about him. Why, for example, wasn’t he executed like other murderers? And there are tales of him regularly receiving a strange masked visitor at the Gaol.
Best Left Buried is a rules light grim and perilous fantasy game. The Midderlands setting and its capital city, Great Lunden, are a fantasy version of medieval Britain with a dash of horror and dark humour.

Game: Mork Borg
You’re beginning to wonder if this was a good idea. A handsome payment to simply rob a funeral procession? What could be easier?
Until you discovered that your employer was Glax, the infamous blind traitor. And that the funeral procession was that of the sister of the blood countess, Anthelia, on its way back home across the bleak wastes of Kergus to the Glass City. All Glax wants is the sarcophagus. Just a dead body. Harmless. Isn’t it?
Mork Borg is a rules-light game of dark fantasy, set in a doomed world ruled by mad kings and tyrannical cultists.

No sane person would go there. But go there you must….
