Golden Sky Stories with Rachelle
Join us for our third Golden Skies Stories RPG Meetup Holiday Special: Permanent Daylight! Originally released in Japan as Yuuyake Koyake, Golden Sky Stories is a heartwarming role-playing game. Players take on the role of animals and monsters with just a little magical power, including the ability to temporarily take human form.
It’s almost time for the winter solstice: the longest night of the year, when the barrier between magic and the mundane becomes very thin. It’s traditionally the role of Grassdale’s magically inclined animals and creatures to help make sure the night passes smoothly. However, our young heroes have found themselves lost in a strange place where the sun never sets and no roads lead back home.
This adventure uses content from the core Golden Sky Stories game and the Fantasy Friends expansion.
Players (5/5): Zack W, Erin Kenny +1, Mina, Marc-André
Dungeon World with Erica Stevenson
Dungeon World is a world of fantastic adventure. A world of magic, gods and demons, of good and evil, law and chaos. Brave heroes venture into the most dangerous corners of the land in search of gold and glory.
Adventurers take many shapes in Dungeon World. The races of elves, men, dwarves, and halflings all have their heroes. Some are near-invincible beasts of battle encased in iron armor. Others are more mysterious, conjuring up and wielding the mighty forces of magic. Treasure and glory are sought by a holy cleric, a tricky thief, a mighty paladin, and more.
It isn’t all easy heroics and noble bravery, though. Every time the ranger guides his friends through the ancient woods there are a hundred things waiting to bite his head off. Slavering hordes of goblin troops, maybe. Or is this the Cursed Wood, where dwells the Gray Witch? Or the throngs of hateful dead, looking to drag a meaty corpse back to their lair? Scary, sure, but there’s treasure, too. More gold and jewels and magic lost to man have fallen between the cracks in the world than you can imagine. Who better to retrieve it than a band of stalwart heroes?
You and your friends are those heroes. You go where others can’t or won’t. There are monstrous things lurking in the world. Are you ready to face them?
Players (4/5): Diogo de Souza +1, Stephen, Alexander,
Dream Askew with Rob
Dream Askew gives us ruined buildings, ruined lives, ruined faces, loaded handguns, psychic powers, heartbroken underdogs and turbulent skies, asking “What do you do next?”
Imagine that the apocalypse didn’t happen everywhere at the same time. Instead, it happened in waves. It’s still happening in waves. You were hit recently. You’ve fallen out of the society intact. You’ve found others who you can relate to, and you’ve banded together with them to form a queer enclave. Gangs roam the apocalyptic rubble, and scarcity is becoming the norm. And just beyond our everyday perception, howling and hungry, there exists a psychic maelstrom.
Dream Askew is a game about post-apocalyptic lives. It’s a game that queers the post-apocalyptic genre, exploring how the apocalyptic process could impact our sexuality, genders, livelihoods, experiences of marginalization, and experiences of liberation.
It’s a story game. You create a character and then you play as that character – narrating their actions, making their life choices, speaking their words, demonstrating what it would mean to be that person.
Players (5/5): Derrick, Mark Shaw +1, Russ G +1
Dungeons & Dragons with Aaron (A.A Ron Befus)
Stone age humanoids fight to survive in a savage world. The Elves and Dwarves shun the savage humanoids, keeping the secrets of writing and steel to themselves, while the more primitive humanoids huddle in caves. The dwarves sit grouchy and xenophobic in their grand palaces in the mountains and the elves prance fabulous and aloof through their woodlands. Both elves and dwarves viewing the communities of cavemen as “fauna that paints on rocks”.
One village, the Moon People, have a special gift. A magical silver goo that gives their people special powers. They call this liquid “The Ichor of the Gods”. A rare fluid, stolen from the elves and dwarves. If the the Ichor were ever to be lost the Moon People would be greatly reduced in power, and a band of young Heroes would have to set out to try and recover it on an epic quest for Ichor!
Quest For Ichor is an adventure for not too serious 1st level Cavemen using the 5th edition of Dungeons & Dragons.
Players (4/5): Bennis Pavisian, Tara Benest, Nabil S., Vladimir Vucinic
Masks with Patrick
In Masks you play young superheroes who are growing up in a city several generations into its superheroic age. Halcyon City has had more than its fair share of superheroes, superteams, supervillains, and everything in between. Over the course of three different generations of super-people, Halcyon City has seen it all.
You play members of the fourth generation, young adults trying to figure out who they are and what kind of heroes they want to be. The rest of the world is telling them what to do, but they'll find their own path amidst the noise. And kick some butt along the way. After all, what's the point of being a hero if you can't fight for the things you believe in?
Masks produces stories like those found in Young Justice, Teen Titans, Young Avengers, X-Men, and more, using the Powered by the Apocalypse rules to provide an easy but useful skeleton for awesome storytelling!
Players (4/5): Ryan L. Neale, Stuart Kenny, Michael, Dave McGuinness
