Naish Holiday Village, Christchurch, Dorset, UK

by Jenni Wildman

ST*R W*RS (sci-fi, futuristic), set in the time of the Old Republic.

The lead senator for Alderaan in the Galactic Senate has been killed in a suspicious shuttle crash, leaving Alderaan leaderless in a time of desperate strife for the planet.

Therefore, the Organas (staunch allies of the Republic) have called an extraordinary gathering for the main Houses in order to democratically choose the next senator.

However, Alderann is a planet divided. Between those that pledge their allegiance to the Empire and those who have yet to declare their loyalty for any side, it is ...


An August Moon...


Naish Holiday Village, Christchurch, Dorset, UK

by CJ (& GJ) Romer

AUGUST 1943 There is a full moon tonight, and the barn is decorated, and the big dance is about to begin. The boys and girls of the confirmation class of 1940 are all 18 now, and they are looking for fun, to find a good husband, or to find a good night. The bonfires are burning on the beach, the cider barrel is open, and the fiddler is ready to lead the dance tune. The problem is everyone knows each other, and even schoolyard sweethearts understand that familiarity breeds contempt... If only the German kids from ...

The Final Cut


Naish Holiday Village, Christchurch, Dorset, UK

by Liz Hayward & David Townsend

It is 1953. As the new queen ascends the throne, Anvil Productions attempt to churn out another of their critically panned but financially successful pot- boiler horror films at Balvinnie Castle, a half ruined castle in the middle of a Scottish loch; the perfect and cheap location. Abandoned since the old laird died, it creaks back into life and the legend of the Beast of Balvinnie Castle seems nothing but a ploy to generate publicity. However, as the evening fog swirls in from the sea, a scream rings out and the mutilated body of a ...


Coffee with AlIce


Naish Holiday Village, Christchurch, Dorset, UK

by Roderick Easton

AlIce was the first program to pass the Turing Test, several years ago. But having passed the test, she had no further use or skills, and was sold to a young entrepreneur setting up an online meeting space for users of the new cyberjack technology and called it 'Coffee with AlIce'. For many years it was a hangout for AI enthusiasts and assorted hackers, but is seen as a little dated these days. Now the same, slightly older, entrepreneur has announced a new business opportunity - an app to let users experience the taste of coffee through their ...


From Bassethwaite With Love


Naish Holiday Village, Christchurch, Dorset, UK

by Mel Harper, Mo Holkar, Wendy Prosser

It's Trans-Siberian Excess all round, as a cultural exchange visit and friendly football match at Bassethwaite's twin town in the depths of the Russian heartland go horribly wrong. Will our heroes survive would-be defectors, SMERSH agents, the last Siberian tiger and the horror of the manufactured pop group Steppes to find seven brides for seven brothers, or will they just be fiddling on the roof?

After the Shadow


Naish Holiday Village, Christchurch, Dorset, UK

by Alex Helm, Rich Wood

For as long as the world has existing, the Dark has battled the Light.

Before time recorded, the world was young and volatile. Powers gained substance and substance gained form. One such form became known as the Dark Mistress Sadahla, and she brought shadow to the lands. She raised a great citadel out of nothing but pure darkness, and the forces of evil flocked to her banner.

It is unknown how she was defeated. Was it a great hero who defeated her armies, or was she betrayed by one of her own? The answer is ...


Nakitomi Plaza


Naish Holiday Village, Christchurch, Dorset, UK

by Hanbury Hampden-Turner

The grand opening of the Nakitomi Tower and Plaza complex promised to be a dull corporate affair, but that was before things started to go badly wrong. In the face of danger, unlikely heroes can emerge. But what happens if too many action-heroes emerge at once?

A game for 12, where (most) play the kinds of heroes that action-films love. It should be noted that action-heroes aren't necessarily good at working what is actually going on, and may get in eachother's way.

Involves mayhem, big guns, implausible martial arts, improvised explosions, villains in three peice ...

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.

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?

Down and out in Middenburg


Life in Arlandia isn't all knights in shining armour and heroes winning pots of gold.

For the court of the Beggar King of Middenburg the deeds of Mighty Kings and Wizards aren't nearly so important as defending your begging spot, avoiding being roughed up by the city watch, and finding a decent recipe for rat stew...


Owl's Hollow: Prelude


Your goal is simple: survive the night.

Background: New England, 1650. You are a group of colonists trudging through the early spring to establish your new township, Owl’s Hollow, in lands west of the Taunton River. You have little supplies left - some have spoiled, some have been pilfered, some have been ruined by weather and accidents. You have made camp for the night, but food, water, and medicines are scarce. You must leave camp and search through the forest if you expect to survive the night, but who knows what dangers lurks there…
