Fall of the House of Malan

GM: Jeff Richard
No. of Players: TBC
Requirements: None

Teaser:
Set in Greg Stafford's world of Glorantha the Fall of the House of Malan is a story of clan politics, bloodshed, war, greed and faith.

The Orlanthi are a proud and strong folk, hot headed and always seeking to prove their worth to their god Orlanth. Join the barbarian clans of these fearsome heroes. This is the story of the Tribe of Malan, of its trial and tribulations. Walk with the storm gods, make war with your clan enemies and rejoice at the feasts with your ancestors.


This game will suit all kinds of freeformers, appealing to those who love to boast, covort and conspire.
The game is aimed at all levels of player and a deep knowledge is not required to enjoy in the fun.

Kingsport: Terror in Store

Requirements: None

Teaser:
A Lovecraftian horror freeform to be performed Saturday evening at Continuum 2010.
“In the morning mist comes up from the sea by cliffs beyond Kingsport. White and feathery it comes from the deep to its brothers the clouds, full of dreams…” – H.P. Lovecraft

All players are strongly encouraged to prepare appropriate costumes, further guidance will be provided once players have been allocated their character.

As this game is one of mystery, suspense and gut wrenching terror, no further information will be supplied prior to game other than individual character packs and rules guidance. Details on how to sign up for this game will follow soon! Chris may need support from GM’s to help run his game, if you are interested then contact Simon Bray via the Contacts section.


You Can't Take the Sky from Me...

GM: Simon Bray & Darran Sims
No. of Players: 25 Players
Requirements: None

Teaser:
"By order of the Union of Allied Planets Eavesdown Docks is under full Landlock, no ships may enter or leave the area for the next twenty four hours. Persephone port authorities will be searching all ships; a known fugitive is believed to be hiding somewhere within the vicinity.
The Alliance requests that all citizens carry on their persons their ident cards. If you see anyone acting suspiciously then report it immediately to the nearest command post..."


Things are heating up down by the Docks, and it’s not just the 'Good Dogs' that are sizzling over the grill. There is civil unrest; the filthy underbelly of the city has rolled itself over for all to view and the Alliance are not happy. Tongs and Triads roam the streets, muscling in on the companies of 'legitimate businessmen', smugglers, whores and Browncoats keep rearing their ugly heads. The local garrison is spread thin, especially since the fire bombing of the Glorious Ole Opera and adjoining buildings. To make matters worse, Governor Macon has chosen this time of discord to further the objectives of his Electoral campaign and seeks to meet and greet the fair folks of the Docks. You can be assured that his rivals will be doing likewise. Combine that with the discord amongst the Companions Guild and Miss Dahlia and you have a whole heap of trouble.

Data: "You Can't Take the Sky from me..." is a freeform role-playing game for 25 players, set in the wonderful setting of Joss Whedon's Firefly/Serenity 'verse. There is no need to be a Browncoat or Firefly afficianado, however I do want players willing to throw themselves into their characters and chew scenery, new players are welcome, so long as they understand this expectation.

Comments

Is that all the freeforms, or are more in the pipeline? If this is everything, I think I should repeat my offer to run a game or two myself. I have two that can be run at Continuum - "The Last Voyage of the Santa Anna" a Victorian, 16 player game; and "The UzBournes" for 25+ Gloranthan Trolls. I did email Simon a few months back about this, but didn't hear anything back.

Also, I'll be a the Student Nationals this weekend, and the organisers will let me put up some posters for Continuum if you can point me at something suitable.

Cheers,
Graham
The posters arrived this morning, and I'll get them distributed today. Hopefully it'll generate a few sign ups.

Thanks for organising that.

Graham
Thank you for putting them out.
Right, spent the weekend viciously flyering the con. Claire's games had some excellent players who seemed like they'd enjoy Continuum, including one guy who's in Leicester anyway. Hopefully at least a few of them will sign up soon.

Cheers,
Graham
