On a Bank by Moonlight

System: The Fall of Delta Green (Gumshoe)
GM: Chris Hart
It might be the Summer of Love, but Delta Green agents must face unimaginable horror…
Agents are sent upstate New York to a small town of Milltown where two members of the same hippie commune have died on one night, one shot in self-defence by the police, the other in a car accident. Recovered from the scene was an idol similar to those found on previous Delta Green missions. How did they come to die? What were they doing with the idol? Does it have anything to do with the commune?
Come and join the stakeout.
Based on the 2018 Quickstart by Gareth Ryder-Hanrahan
Please note this game is a morning game (10.00 – 13.00)

Blood on Brown Corduroy

System: Liminal 
GM: Roderick Hamilton

It’s 1974. Bagpuss is on the telly, John Pertwee’s still The Doctor, and the Three Day Week has just kicked in – but you’ve got your own problems. You’re someone who has been touched by the strange in some way, drawn onto the precipice of the Hidden World, and thought your future was out there in the wider world – but the funeral of an important figure from your childhood has drawn you back to South Manchester and reunited you with your old schoolmates. Something seems off about it all though – Maybe the Hidden World was here, back home, all along? It’s up to you and your chums to find out. And you’ve got to do it all while wearing a shirt with massive lapels.

Blood on Brown Corduroy is a mystery scenario using the acclaimed Liminal game system. It will be run over Roll20, with Discord as preferred voice/video communication channel (although the latter is up for negotiation). Some action and light horror expected, no Player V Player or adult content.

The Birds

System: Tales from the Loop
GM: Guy Milner

You are kids, ages between 10 and 15. It is sometime in the 1980s. You live in the Mälaren Islands, a suburb on the coast not far from Stockholm, Sweden. Nothing ever happens here. Work hard at school, and you might get a job at the Facility for Research in High Energy Physics (“The Loop”) and have a comfortable life doing what your parents do. Except for that one day, in the long, hot summer of 1984, you hear the pigeons near the kiosk talk.

We’ll be using Roll20 and Google Meet with video.

System: Barbarians of Lemuria
GM: Paul Mitchener

So you’ve found yourself condemned to fight in the gladiatorial pit, fighting for entertainment until you die. You will have your revenge, and free the city – but first, you have to band together to fight and escape the arena!

Darkpool Rock – A Midderlands Adventure

System – Best Left Buried)
GM: Steven Blythe
Darkpool in Lankershire was once a bustling seaside town, a place of circus acts, minstrels and fun. Then suddenly its population vanished. Overnight and without warning. Stranger still, a huge black monolith had appeared in the town and is there to this day. The town lies deserted, people fearful that if they step into it they will vanish as well. No sane person would go there. But go there you must….
