Event Title: A Night Of Enticing Stories

System: 1001 Nights

Blurb: 1001 Nights is the game of storytelling, courtly intrigue and self-preservation in the palace of the Sultan. “You play members of the Sultan’s Court, whiling away the sultry nights by telling pointed stories to advance your own ambitions. Navigate the social maze and you could win your heart’s desire; offend the wrong person and you suffer the Sultan’s wrath.” This rotating-GM style game gives everyone the opportunity to tell tall tales and enjoy the parables of others.

Maximum number of players: 6

Event Title: The Burdens Of War
System: carry. a game about war.

Blurb: carry. a game about war. is a short-form game that follows the story of a squad of U.S. Marines in the Vietnam war. The players take on the roles of soldiers from this squad, and create the weights and issues that they bring with them into the war. As the unit falls apart under both external attack and internal strife, how will you shape the legacy and memories that you will leave behind? This is not a convention scenario; this game is played in its entirety in one 4-hour session.

Event Title: The Guardians of Time

System: Timestream

Blurb: It’s a big responsibility, the preservation of history. And those tasked with it have started to slip. Strange events and changes are started to erupt in every era, and now you’ve been tapped as a replacement. Unfortunately, you have your own goals and interests – which may or may not match up with your new duties. Will you and your compatriots be able to stand up to the test of time itself? Or will you let your personal interests get between you? As Time Travelers, Temporal Manipulators and Thralls, the fate of the timestream itself is in your hands.

Maximum number of players: 6

Keepin’ my Sunday open, baby. I’m looking forward to this one.
