Nevermind the Buzzcoughs


System: Vurt
GM: Chris Hart (aka Dirk The Dice).

Get feathered up and enter the Vurt space of Bolton: one of the wealthiest and most influential areas of Manchester, where you’ll find the most courageous feather-heads who have a taste of all the new feathers before they hit the other boroughs; Hybrids, Blacks and yellows, they’re all here and you’ll get to taste them. Meet me in ‘The Man and Psyche’ as we adventure in futuristic Manchester created by Jeff Noon. It’s a cyber-punk journey into dream-space with unusual characters and exotic encounters: it’s Numenera, with rain. (Mature content- simulated drug use – 18+)

This is one of the games being offered for November’s meetup, which we are doing player registration for so we know numbers.

Steel Rain

System: Eclipse Phase
GM: John Ossoway

Mars.

What should have been a routine patrol has ended with a Ranger flyer wrecked in a dust storm—20 klicks inside the Titan Quarantine Zone.

With your fellow rangers stranded inside the Zone, your station was preparing to deploy a search team to their last known position, but someone high up in government has had other ideas. Rumour is the patrol officers saw something they shouldn’t have, and now you have been ordered to leave your comrades to their fate.

But fate seems to be favouring you. The dust storm is preventing the powers that be from tasking an orbiting kill-sat to target and drop a tungsten-steel rod on the crash site. There is a window of opportunity.

Can your team reach the downed rangers in time—get them the hell out of there while their cortical stacks are still intact and perhaps learn what they saw?
