5838 Lamentations of the Flame Princess: Forgive Us, GM: Dave Kesler, 6 players, Some XP/Average, Friday 10a-1p. 1625 was a plague year in Norwich.

5545 Call of Cthulhu 7e: In Media Res, GM: Rom Elwell, 4 players, Some XP/Average, Friday 2p-6p. The release of eldritch energy courses through your body and causes your knees to buckle. You blink your eyes and shake your head in a futile attempt to clear the cobwebs from your memory. Looking around, you find you are not the only man standing over the dining table in this shabby room. Stretched across the table top is the bloodied body of a man; the badge pinned to his shirt now barely discernible under the crumpled top and slick sheen of all that blood. A voice loudly booms, "To know me is to join me! I am the Opener of the Way!" Panic sets your nerves on edge! Who am I? And what the hell is going on? Dare you step into a reimagining of this classic scenario from Pagan Publishing? Mature Content (18+) Conference B Table 4. $3.00

7p

5544 Call of Cthulhu 7e: Let The Children Come To Me, GM: Rom Elwell, 6 players, No XP/Average, Friday 7p-12a. Children are disappearing in Aylesbury, Massachusetts. Over the past 8 months, poor children, workers at a local textile mill, have vanished under mysterious circumstances. Such a situation should be cause for panic and uproar, except that most of the children reappear after a few days, just as suddenly and mysteriously as they disappeared, each perfectly fine and claiming that nothing happened. Investigators will be challenged to the edge of sanity and beyond as they examine whether the horrors of the Mythos are indeed worse than the evils which mankind can inflict upon itself… Mature Content (18+) Conference B Table 4. $3.00

8p

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

5804 Chill 3rd Edition: Cold Dark Earth, GM: Jae Walker, 6 players, No XP/Average, Friday 8p-12a. There is something terribly off about a recent murder in New Deal, TN.

5320 Lamentations of the Flame Princess: The Tower of the Stargazer, GM: Dan Domme, 6 players, No XP/Average, Saturday 2p-6p. Legend tells of a wizard so arrogant that he felt the entire sky was naught but a lens for him to view the stars. So great was his hubris and defiance that even when smote with the power of storm and fire, the wizard laughed. He feared not retribution from man nor God, for he drew his knowledge from something greater. Something darker. Something outside. The legend of this wizard grew, first whispered by men in fear, and later in awe. But then there was no more news. No more talk. Something had finally brought the wizard low, for though the sky still blazed down on him and his abode, he no longer blazed back. And now you're going to walk right through this wizard's front door. Mature Content (18+) Conference E Table 2. $3.00
