My mother said I never should, play with the Faeries in the wood…

Well… It was actually your grandmother, and she never used the F word. She called them the good neighbours, the fair folk. She warned you to never turn away an old lady in need of aid, or play near a lone tree in the middle of a field or follow strange lights in the darkness. She told you a lot of things that you wish you could remember now that your friend has been taken and you have to bargain with the Sidhe for their, hopefully safe, return.

Masks: A New Generation

GENRE

Superhero Action-Comedy a la Marvel – Horror Undertones

It is now December 31st, 1999, the dawn of a new millenium. You are a group of teens dedicated to using your powers to help people. Labels of “hero” and “villain” are contentious these days, applied differently by everyone who uses them. Despite any apprehension on your part, any worries about the future of your efforts, or your place in this new essential dichotomy, you know you are heroes.

When zombies, dripping with neon blood, start terrorising the city of Metropoville, all of that fades away. When the future of this new superpowered world hangs in the balance, all of that fades away. It’s up to you to stand up for those who can’t, and make sure that the age of the hero starts now.

GENRE

Sci-fi

The USS Dunsany is on a routine mission, delivering supplies to a long-term research colony stationed on Vesbius-IV. Vesbius-IV is a recently discovered extinct planet, once home to advanced civilisations that died out centuries ago. Located far away from any other space-faring race, the planet has remained entirely undisturbed until a Federation spaceship stumbled on it several decades ago. Ancient Vesbiusians are renowned by modern historians for their rich culture and unique advancements in technology.

However since the silent dead planet was first uncovered, one question has remained unanswered: Where did all the life go? As you approach the planet, a message sent to you from the researchers indicates the uncovering of a new series of monuments. Have they finally found their answer or does something much darker await them in the shadows of the hand-carved monoliths that tower over empty streets of rubble?

One of Outpost 11’s most recent caravans has gone missing, and with it, vital steam cores to power New London’s most advanced machines. You have been volunteered to find the caravan and bring it home.

Fantasy – Personality-Driven – Thriller

You were told it was a simple job; cross the border, kill a few kobolds and morlocks, go to town, party with the loot funds and get back to the Adventurer’s Guild for the payday. Good times with good friends.

And then that accursed fortune-teller claimed that one of you is a shape shifting Grimm in disguise. Now you’ve all brushing it off as a carnival joke; after all, you guys are all battle brothers of hundreds of adventures (and misadventures), no man eating, inhuman fiend could impersonate any of you lads and not be found out, right? And yet, you can cut through the suspicion and suspense with a knife.

Now, how you are supposed to fulfil your secret mission so that your companions don’t find out?

A WWN game for 3-5 players of a sworn brotherhood of adventurers turning on each other due to personal secrets and star-crossed conspiracies.

Heart: The City Beneath

GENRE

Steampunk – Fantasy – Horror

An ancient paradoxical curse courses through your veins. Taken willingly, unwillingly, or otherwise, this curse binds you to the Blood Witches of Hallow, the grand occult cathedral built in their name when time and blood flowed equally.

They have inscribed on every drop of blood in your body an impossible task: Sink the City Above into the Heart, a blossoming tear in reality, a parasite universe of blood and bone seeping into the dreams of all living things. It is also the twisted mass of half-real subterranean demesnes you call home.

So, fetid adventurer, it is time for you to complete your impossible task. Drown the world in blood, and revel in the nightmare heaven you bring it.

You and your mates are a bunch of larcenous petty criminals from the bad side of Far Far Away.

Triple B has threatened to revoke your breathing privileges and demote you to undead thralls unless you can clear your debt to him before the end of the week, so when a careless uptown janitor forgets to dispel his portal after throwing away a bucket of rancid caviar, you don’t hesitate to dive through, more than eager to get your hands dirty and filch some shinies from the big wigs in their – literal – ivory towers.

You were trained to be among the commando teams to head up direct attacks.

Root

GENRE

Fantasy – Comedy

The Woodland’s been having a hard time of it lately. The birds have decided infighting is a better pastime than ruling (which they weren’t great at anyway), those crows that just moved in have had to resort to crime to make ends meet, otter merchants are exploiting the situation for all the clams they can get, and many desperate, helpless denizens turn to the sinister Lizard Cult for help.

All of this is coming together in the worst way in the clearing of Linmullen. The local beavers finished their new mill, just in time for their eagle overlord to swoop in and lay claim to all their hard work. Then the beavers made the sensible decision to get the crow mafia involved. The same crow mafia who were also extorting the otter smugglers. With the town ready to erupt into violence at the drop of a feather, the lizards offered solace and hope – mostly through vague prophecies. Now, they really need some of those prophecies to start coming true. That’s why they hired you; to a band of vagabonds, “apocalyptic desperation” sounds a lot like “gainful employment”.
