System: River of Heaven
GM: John Ossoway
Mars has fallen to the Renouncers, who continue to wage their relentless holy war against intelligent machines and their allies.
The Martian Space Tether is down, and as Renouncer war machines ravage the surface, a network of orbital kill-sats capable of destroying any ship approaching the red planet performs an effective orbital interdiction against Hegemony space assets.
Olympus Mons is the site of an important node in the command and control infrastructure for the Mars Planetary Defence Network. It is also the location of a Visser Cube – a traversable wormhole paired with a twin in your home system of Alpha Centauri.
Both of the Visser Cubes are currently offline.
You are a squad of Hegemony Marines. Best of the best. Your mission profile is clear:
- Get to the surface.
- Penetrate the Olympus Mons Citadel.
- Take and hold the Visser Cube chamber
- Realign the wormholes, allowing the Hegemony to deploy troops to the surface of Mars directly from your homeworld.
So check those suit seals, warm up your smart rifles and show me your war face.
It’s game time.
River of Heaven is a D100 Science fiction game published by D101 Games set in a far future where humankind nears transhumanity, using nanoaugmentation, and the Singularity Event is just over the horizon.
System: Eclipse Phase
GM: John Ossoway
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?
Eclipse Phase is a game of Sci-Fi Transhuman Horror, using many of the troupes from modern cyber-punk like Altered Carbon.

System: Star Wars Edge of the Empire
The galaxy is in turmoil.
In the wake of the Battle of Yavin, the Empire struggles to maintain its grip on power in the midst of bloody civil war.
On the edge of the Empire, bands of scoundrels and smugglers, bounty hunters and bandits, explorers and exiles all scramble to make a living. You are one such group – the crew of the freelance freighter Good Omens.
An “Imperial entanglement” has left you trying to keep a low profile on Ord Mantell while you make repairs to your ship. A chance encounter with an old friend in need of help quickly escalates out of control, leading you on a treasure hunt that brings you into a confrontation with a local crime lord, rebel sympathisers and imperial forces. The question is – who will secure the ultimate prize: the fabled Elemental Goddess?
Number of Players: 5.
