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 ...

Smite the sounding furrows; for my purpose holds To sail beyond the sunset, and the baths Of all the western stars, until I die. -- Alfred, Lord Tennyson

Now he calls to him the comrades who were left behind on his long journey home; to set forth on one last expedition, beyond the western stars of the Spiral Arm: to ...

It's the end of Year 13 (Seventh Form) at Raumati High School, and Mr. O'Strate's theatre class has just performed 'Much Ado About Nothing' as part of the school's cultural concert, to rapturous applause. You all decided to attend the cast party at Leonato's place, while his parents are out of town, because they've got a pool and a well-stocked liquor cabinet that would have kept you busy, even if Don John didn't bring the keg. Needless to say, you all got absolutely hammered. Now it's the next morning ...

A producer has drawn the best living TV food personalities to make an “ultimate showdown” of tv food related personalities. Some are new, some are old hands - but will they band together against the toxic forces of reality tv or boil over in the pressure cooker of life in the public eye?
Who will end up on the chopping block? Who will get their own better and brighter TV deal? What scandals will sink their chances faster than a souffle?
Warning: swearing, adult themes, and spray on whipped cream. Written by someone who learned everything about the ...

This is a story about the end of the world.
At some point, it became inevitable. The first bomb was launched, then the next, and the next, and within a few days the radiation clouds had spread, and covered the world. Those who survived retreated to underground silos, to live out our lives beneath the surface.
With no way to contact other silos, we formed our own societies, our own rules and laws, our own ways of living.
We estimated it would take 200 years for the radiation to clear enough to make radio contact with the ...

A special exhibition showcasing selections from the history of Western Art has finally come to the Louvre, and it was at this stop that the artworks had planned to have their big vote to decide whether postmodern art would be accepted into the ranks. There’s just one problem – the Picasso is missing. Beyond that, things are starting to get out of hand as the classics are getting snooty, the Expressionists won’t have a bar of it, the Van Gogh’s depressed, no one even wants to know what the Bosch is doing ...

There are three great heroes in the Kingdom of Arkhos. Their fates are bound together, like sticks in a bundle. And those fates will manifest very soon.
One will be king. One will be happy. One will die.
This much is woven into the skein of destiny, and cannot be changed. But destiny can manifest in many different ways. Humans can pull it one way or another, within the confines of its essential nature, if they wield the right sort of power.
That power is called witchcraft.
Exactly one year ago, on the Night ...

Content Warnings: Grief, sustained physical activity
Note: This is a game that is intended to have a significant amount of walking. This is the part of the fantasy story that isn’t usually told: the large amounts of relatively uneventful travel by foot. As such, this game is more focused on your relationship with your companions than on action and heroics.
You are part of an adventuring party, making their way to the Tears of Heaven, a waterfall that is said to fall all the way from the celestial plane. Your party recently fought and defeated a ...
Borrowing heavily from the universe of Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, Layercake and Snatch, this short and potentially rather silly game gives you the chance to release your inner East London Gangster.

In a far corner of the galaxy, there is a planet no outsider should ever see, surrounded by an opaque dome.
There are many legends about the domed planet, and just as many theories about what might lurk on its surface, but one common thread runs through them all:
This place is not for you.
It's a shame humans have never really been good at following instructions.
The Sky Like Glass is a sci-fi horror LARP about crossing boundaries, uncovering secrets, and the consequences that follow.

A group of soldiers on the losing side of the war band together out of desperation rather than any liking for each other and attempt to escape their now occupied country. They travel for days, weeks, through the rain and the mud, heading for the nearest border. They survive on meagre supplies scavenged from burnt out farm buildings and old encampments. Progress is slow - they constantly have to hide and double back and wait to avoid enemy patrols. Finally they reach the mountain range that marks the border and begin their treacherous climb. Deep in the mountains ...
