PG 13+, sci-fi, suspenseful exploration game, 3 hours, 3-5 players.

The Players take on the role of down-on-their-luck salvagers in a ship that barely flies – they need a big payday. When the call goes out to investigate the ancient ghost ship Carthage, most would put sense before greed and stay away from the job. But the Players don’t have the luxury of turning down a job as lucrative as this one.

Mansion of the Raven Lord


GM: Wade Dyer (Games Designer)

MA 18+, gothic horror game, 3 hours, 3-5 players.

Lord Bennison has recently gone mad, killing his family, staff and locking himself inside his illustrious mansion on Raven Hill. A team of city guards were sent in to arrest him, but none have re-emerged. There is a magical build up at the mansion and the PCs must rush to find out what is going on and rescue any surviving servants or city guards.

Qularr Invasion


GM: Jye Lambert

PG 13+, Super Heroes, 3 hours, 3-5 players.

The Qularr alien race has returned to try and conquer Earth, the focal point of their invasion; Millennium City. The Champions are all that stands in the way of this alien race and their evil intent. Take the role of one of the five Champions (Defender, Ironclad, Kinetik, Witchcraft or Sapphire) and defend the city against the alien invaders and their huge monsters.’

The Tower of Thall Barak (Pathfinder, Part 2)

GM: Frank Mikes

PG 13+, High Fantasy, 3 hours, 4-6 players.

After facing many dangers in the forest, the adventurers finally arrive at the Tower of Thall Barak, the artificer that originally forged the Massal Stone.  The locals believe the tower to be cursed and that none have ever returned once inside.  Who knows what the adventurers will find inside?

Return to Lord Crommin  (Pathfinder, Part 3)

GM: Frank Mikes
