Role Playing



6474 Fiasco: Tekumel: A Vindication of Instability - Cancelled, GM: George Hammond, 0 players, No XP/Simple, Friday 9a-1p. Fiasco is inspired by cinematic tales of small time capers gone disastrously wrong – inspired by films like Blood Simple, Fargo, The Way of the Gun, Burn After Reading, and A Simple Plan. You’ll play ordinary people with powerful ambition and poor impulse control, big dreams but flawed means. It won’t go well for them, to put it mildly, and will probably end in a glorious heap of jealousy, murder, impalement and recrimination. Lives and reputations will be lost, painful wisdom will be gained, and if you are really very lucky, your character just might end up back where he started. This is a GM-less game. We will use a playset custom-made for Tékumel . Players are not expected to have any experience with the Fiasco rules, but should have some familiarity with the Tékumel setting. Adults Only (18+) Seminar 5. $4.00


6235 Lamentations of the Flame Princess: The Labyrinth of Elongated Shadows, GM: John Till, 6 players, No XP/Simple, Friday 1p-5p. 17th Century Stargate! Servants of the Spanish Crown step through an obsidian mirror, entering a strange plane adjacent to fabled Tékumel - one filled with unearthly monsters and threats. General Audience (13+) Seminar 5. $4.00


6118 Diceless: A matter of honor, GM: Patrick Brady, 7 players, No XP/Simple, Friday 8p-12a. When someone runs away from an arranged marriage, it causes a problem for the entire clan. It is a delicate matter of honor and relations with another clan. There are many ways to resolve this - persuasion, intelligent problem-solving and brute force are all available. Which approach will you take? Mature Content (18+) Hotel Restaurant. $4.00

6929 Microscope: Lord Thumis's Resplendent Conclave for the Illumination of Antiquites, GM: Howard Hendrickson, 6 players, Some XP/Simple, Friday 8p-12a. Microscope is nominally a RPG, but at at a fractal scale, moving in and out of event scope and detail and encompassing an expansive timeline in a nonlinear manner. We will be exploring a hitherto undefined period of history on Tékumel. In this case, we shall try to illuminate the area of She’nyu, from the time of Darkness until the fall of the Dragon Kings. Some experience with Tékumel will be needed, but expertise is not expected. Microscope works on a fairly simple mechanic, and it will be taught. Come, noble historians, servitors of change or stability, illuminators of antiquities, scholars of primeval lore, share what you know, or even what you suspect, of the obscure annals of Tékumel. General Audience (13+) Seminar 5. $4.00



6128 The Petal Hack: Beneath the Mound, GM: Brett Slocum, 6 players, No XP/Simple, Saturday 9a-1p. A fresh underworld is known only to your clan.

6237 Fate of Tekumel RPG (Fate system): Under Hmakuyal, GM: John Till, 6 players, No XP/Simple, Saturday 2p-6p.

6274 Tekumel (Bethorm): The Bequest of Kalusu hiKarodai, GM: Krista Donnelly, 7 players, No XP/Simple, Saturday 8p-12a.
