SwissRPG is proud to introduce the Zürich Megagames initiative with our very first megagame. What is a megagame you ask? Read below and find out everything there is to know.
• Den of Wolves - A megagame of politics, survival and paranoia in the 27th Century by John Mizon of South West Megagames
It is the 27th Century and human society has spread to multiple planets. Despite political differences and internal problems, most of humanity is at peace. The various factions, spread across multiple star systems, are governed by the Interstellar Council.
This all changed eighteen days ago when the military of Wolf-1061, an insular and secretive planet-state, launched a massive, catastrophic attack against the other inhabited planets. Through a mixture of cyber-attacks, espionage and sabotage, they managed to disable the vast majority of the Interstellar Council's military, and went on to devastate their targets on the various planets.
Through the chaos, the battleship ICSS Aegis was able to survive the attack and escape to interstellar space. It soon found itself protecting and aiding numerous civilian vessels attempting to escape the Wolf forces. The "Survivor Fleet", as it has come to be known, must now provide critical resources for its survivors and vessels, whilst simultaneously trying to maintain government and social order, root out the undercover spies within the fleet and mount an effective defence against pursuing Wolf forces.
• What to expect
Den of Wolves is a game about political, military and survival choices in a long-term crisis scenario. Players will take on the roles of starship captains, officers, and engineers, as well as politicians and military personnel. The game has a focus on managing resources, as well as various units and assets – however, talking and negotiating with other players will be crucial in order to achieve success. The game also seeks to represent political and military systems, and their decisions, and so players should expect some political simulation.

• What is a megagame?
A megagame is a day-long event for a large number of players that mixes elements from board games and role playing games. They usually involve negotiations, operational mechanics, military combat, role-play, resource management and more. Players can choose roles focused on the aspects of the game they enjoy, so there’s really something for everyone. The important thing is that they’re a lot of fun, which is why we’re bringing them to Switzerland!
