Best of the Wurst


by Nickey Barnard, Martin Jones, Mike Snowdon, Julie Winnard

1942: Occupied France

In Quimper Castle Hotel, overlooking the sleepy town of Quimper, a very important event is being planned. To demonstrate that German/Franco relations are, in fact, excellent, Colonel Kronenburg has organised a sausage tasting competition – the best German wurst against sausages from across Europe! Is there any doubt who will win? There are even rumours of a visiting Very Important Person. But in a hotel famed for its painting of St Francis of Assisi with the Large Boobies and the Great Tits (it’s a nature scene), the ...


The Always Waltz


by Caroline Murphy, Alex Brune

You are at a decadent masquerade, drinking the sweet wine. Your companion to your left smiles devilishly and bows courteously, your companion to your right tilts her head and curtseys delicately. Never before have you remembered feeling so happy, so alive. You start to remember something... A child crying? Why is she crying? She's calling to you… Calling you, something... Why would you leave your child? Your pulse quickens and panic rises in your throat, the bile of sweet wine sickening your senses. You go to take off your mask… NO! You MUSTN'T ...


S.W.I.P.E. – Symbiotes Will Inherit Planet Earth


by Ciaran Searle

For aeons, the Drik have repeated the process. We find a new world and embed our formless selves within the minds of a number of its inhabitants. We wait and when the time is right we heed the call of the Mothership to ready her approach.

Our latest target: the planet Earth. The groundwork has been laid. We few have melded with a select group of humans. We learned their ways, hid ourselves in their everyday lives and were ready for the call. It has now been one Earth year.

This time, the call did not come…

JUGGERNAUT


by Jason Morningstar

It is July third, 1950. The Korean War is eight days old. National Security Council Report 68 is sitting on Harry Truman’s desk, a grim outline of the Cold War that is to enfold the world for the next 40 years. Alan Turing’s paper “Computing Machinery and Intelligence” is circulating for review. Cinderella is a box office sensation.

And you have invented a computer that can see the future.

Employing cutting-edge Ward-Takahashi identity derivations outside their quantum-theoretical framework, JUGGERNAUT processes enormous data sets, ostensibly in the service of code-breaking once the technology is proven and ...


Super Sparkle Action Princess GX!


You are the cast and crew of TV's hottest new children's show: Super Sparkle Action Princess GX! It's got a ballerina turned action heroine, evil cyborg aliens, sparkly transformation scenes and a lot of riding around on hover bikes. The kiddies love that stuff. But today there's a problem: your footage for this week's episode disappeared in a freak giraffe incident, the script is a collection of incoherent jottings from your drunken absentee writer, and the props mistress hates you. Your deadline is today, and failure is not an option. It won't just get you fired, it'll get you a really nasty phone call from your five year old niece. Are you a trouper?

A-Muse-ment


by lisa malone

How do writers get their inspiration – on their own or delivery by muse? What do you think of when you imagine the muses – elegant, graceful creatures out of Greek myth who kindly bestow this inspiration, or backstabbing, squabbling creatures constantly fighting over who controls the ideas, the writers and the next best seller? It’s the latter. Several famous writers have come to a writers retreat to try and help each other get past their current writers block. Unbeknown to the writers a number of muses have also swooped down into the retreat. But with more muses ...


Harry Potter and the Ten Year Reunion


by jarratt gray

It's May 2nd, 2008, ten years since the Battle of Hogwarts. You've been to a touching memorial service, an awkward memorial morning tea, an interminable tour of the now complete reconstruction of Hogwarts, and you have just taken the first possible opportunity to sneak out of a truly atrocious memorial feast in the great hall.

Thank Merlin there's a pub just down the road in the village. Just a quiet butterbear with your mates at The Three Broomsticks. With none of those annoying gits who were up at the school...


Play Date


by Susan Weiner, Stephanie Marx, Drew Novick and Margaret Simkins (Peaky Midwest 2016)

The Inversion of Me and My Room


by Tory Root

You are in a dream.

You do not know, entirely, who you are. You will probably find out--you may find out that you are somebody rather different. Or rather the same. You're not sure which would be more unsettling.

This is not a dream you will forget easily, nor is it one without consequences. It may well be more real than most of your waking life. You may never wake up at all.

But regardless: you are in a dream, and you keep falling.

This is a small, experimental mindscrew game with speculative elements about identity ...

Davy Jones' Locker


by Freeform Games

It is 1785, and the Caribbean is a hotbed of violence, treachery, the occult and, of course, piracy. Tortuga, an island off the north coast of Haiti, is home not only to peaceful plantations, but also to thieves, gypsies, scavengers, voodoo queens and grave robbers. Tortuga is also a pirate stronghold and a frequent port-of-call for the most feared pirates in the Caribbean.

Abel “Blackheart” Read, the Caribbean’s most nefarious pirate, had wrought havoc for many years throughout the region – but now his reign of terror is over. First, Blackheart and the Pegasus, his ship, was ...


Blackened Hearts


by Matthew Karabache

t is a fine day for larceny upon the high seas indeed! The Devil hisself must have blest the crew of the Black Kraken with his own luck—how else could it be that you would happen upon the fat Spanish treasure galleon the Urca de Lima, separated from her escort and crippled by one of the worst storms that ever scoured the ocean? Then again, even in these most favourable circumstances, the Spaniards fought long and hard before you finally took her. The Urca de Lima now trails behind you, a small prize crew doing what ...


A Wolf By Any Other Name


In the Magimundi, the hidden North American magical universe, two types of creatures can shape-shift into wolves: Lycans and loup-garou. Though their powers are essentially the same, the way they are treated by society is not. Loup-garou are privileged; lycans are persecuted. On this night of the full moon, you are in detention with other New World Magischola students, some of whom are secret lycans, struggling to find the potion that will keep them from changing and outing their condition. What will you do when the moon rises?
