Time Nazis Must Die

What’s worse than Nazis? Nazis with a stolen time machine that’s what!

GM: Simon Proctor

System: Timewatch

Players: 3-6 (pre-reg will be available)

Age Rating: PG

Time: Saturday Afternoon (3pm to 6pm)

One of the most tedious and yet important jobs Timewatch agents get lumbered with is the Hitler protection detail.
Stopping well meaning new time travellers from killing Hitler is a job that gets handed round from team to team.
Except this time it just got worse because this time the Nazis got their hands on the time machine and are looking to change history.

A pulp race against and through time to track down and stop the time Nazis before they DESTROY HISTORY!

 

Some Instances at Junction Station

Its an open secret that The Hand run Junction Station, and a demonstration of their power that they can do so when everybody knows.

GM: Matthew Barrowcliffe

System: d6 Redux

Players: 3-6 (pre-reg will be available)

Age Rating: 15

Time: Saturday Afternoon (3pm to 6pm)

Description: The Resistance is rising and the forces of the Federation are struggling to keep control over their faceless empire of bribery, deceit and propaganda. However the Resistance needs supplies, contacts and smuggling routes, and for that they need The Hand, or at least Junction Station.
Junction Station lies just outside the Federation territories and it is on a major conduit between the outer colonies and the Federation and it is rumoured to be not just a stop off point for trade, but also one for entertainments both legal and illegal. Officially it has a neutral corporate government, owned by a number of trading houses both independent and Federation owned.
The Resistance are about to have to ship supplies through Junction Station. They need you to find a safe route through and if necessary find out who is running the place and make sure they let your packages pass unchecked.

 

To Hades and Back

When your loved one is consigned to Hell there is really only one thing to do.

GM: Matthew Barrowcliffe

System: 1001 Tales (Homebrew)

Players: 3-6 (pre-reg will be available)

Age Rating: PG

Time: Sunday Morning (extended, 10am to 2pm)

Description: When you lose your love to the whim of the gods there is only one thing you can do: Gather your friends and fight your way down into Hades to get them back. One hero of a Greek myth, lost to time, has decided to do this and they and their friends are going to succeed or there will be hell to pay.

This is a tale of action and adventure based partly on a mash up of Greek and Roman myths. It is an end tale of great heroes set in a world of fantasy, where gods play chess with the souls of their people, and any who stand up to them can be called Hero.

The Keepers of the Woods

Members of a London based literary and folklore society are drawn to a isolated, rural village on legend haunted Dartmoor by a friend’s death under apparently mysterious circumstances.

GM: Frederick Foulds

System: Trail of Cthulhu

Players: 2-5 (pre-reg will be available)

Age Rating: 15

Time: Sunday Morning (extended) 10am to 2pm

January 1934 – Members of the Miscellany Society receive a letter from their friend, Margaret Blackwood, a professor of British folklore. It invites them to meet in the quaint Devonshire village of Postbridge, where she has made a discovery regarding “active worship of an ancient god”. Before they set off, however, the morning’s paper announces her death in a mysterious car accident, which some have attributed to a local ghost legend, known as the ‘hairy hands’.

*A selection of pre-gen characters will be provided. This scenario is geared more towards the Purist style of play for Trail of Cthulhu (think Graham Walmsley’s Final Revelation and Cthulhu Apocalypse).

The innermost circle of Hell is named Judecca for it’s guest of honour – The Great Betrayer. In the back stairs and halls of power of Europe the deals and preparations have been made to bring him forth from Below and grant him form.

A disavowed, ramshackle coalition of The Above stands against from the shadows. In Frankfurt it falls to a hastily assembled squad of knights of the perpetually fractious and eternally troubled Order of The Temple of Solomon
