5853 DCC RPG: Ride the Rising Tide of Darkness - CANCELLED, GM: Scott Kellogg, 0 players, No XP/Simple, Friday 2p-6p. Each year in the benighted city of Purdimal, priests of the Supreme Principle of Change celebrate the high holy day of The Rising Tide of Darkness by offering living sacrifices to their dark deity Hru’u. Deep within the Underworld, persons of low or no clan are released from imprisonment to suffer their grisly fates. Most serve to feed the demons of the dark, but the handful who, by chance or wit, survive until daybreak are deemed by the temple priests blessed by the Dispenser of Calamities. Offered education and status by the priests, these lucky souls can rise high within the Empire. This game will use the Dungeon Crawl Classics RPG rules to present a “character funnel”. Each player controls several 0-level characters in a desperate struggle to survive. No experience in DCC RPG or Tekumel is required. General Audience (13+) Seminar 5. $3.00

5204 Tekumel: You killed my father..., GM: Patrick Brady, 7 players, No XP/Simple, Friday 8p-12a. Five years ago your father was murdered. It has taken you this long to find the perpetrators, and now it is time for you to take your revenge. But it will not be easy, as they will be hard to get at and not all of your siblings share your vision of what closure might mean. Some just want these guys dead, some of you want them to suffer, others want a pile of bodies as a shrine to your late father. Which are you? Mature Content (18+) Seminar 5. $3.00
