    GRPA – Monday, November 30th 6-11pm

    Game #1 – Super Zombie Vampire Apocalypse
    Truth & Justice (PDQ)

    5 Players
    GM – Dale Horstman

    In 2021, the world had been gripped in the throes of wide-scale war for years. The United States, as a self-appointed worldwide police force, has been barely holding it all together, especially after the Atlanta incident. One bright light flickered on the horizon – the Magnificent 5: a top-secret U.S. program managed to create five honest-to-goodness Super Heroes – real comic book stuff. They jump into the fray with their energy blasts and super TK shields and after six months, the world settles down a bit. Then the Magnificent 5 mysteriously die. The official word is that the process used to create them was unstable. Unofficially, it was unstable enough to create a mutated air-born virus with a 75% mortality rate. Those who survive being infected are shockingly changed. By 2023, the fallout of this worldwide plague has left humanity on the brink of extinction. Only a mere 100,000 humans remain uninfected. Of those billions infected, most were turned into zombie-like creatures, constantly feeding on flesh for protein and sustenance. Others became dark, vampiric creatures who are the zombies’ masters, always shrouded in shadow. A very few, however, became the saviors of humanity, called the Supers. These individuals are endowed with awesome powers but little time. No infected Super has lasted more than two years before self-destructing. Today, one of the last humans is close to a cure and a plan – can the only heroes left in the world help her realize it before their time is up?


    Game #2 – A Day Late, A Shilling Short
    Warhammer Fantasy RPG 3rd Ed
    4 Players
    GM – Blaine Patrick

    Something is definitely wrong in Ubersreik. Vaerun, the High Elf Envoy, is expecting an important package that was supposed to arrive on the last coach. The Roadwarden Birgitta’s partner, Rutger, was escorting the package. The coach, the package, and Rutger are all a day late. Worried about what may have happened, Birgitta and Vaerun head off to investigate. Kurgi Balginson, the Dwarf Troll Slayer, joins them, eager to pay back his honor debt to Birgitta – or die trying. What became of Rutger and Vaerun’s package? The adventuring party may find out if their investigation doesn’t end up a day late and a shilling short…

    Come try a sample of Fantasy Flight’s new version of the Warhammer Fantasy RPG. It’s really a novel concept that we’re all very excited about, and we think you’ll agree that it’s a great imagining of a rich and venerable role-playing world.


    Game #3 – Like the Corners of My Mind
    Penny For My Thoughts
    4-5 Players
    GM – Adam Breindel

    Sitting with a bunch of strangers in an unusual medical clinic, trying an experimental drug and an odd form of group therapy… Alright. At least you’re pretty sure that’s what’s going on right now. As for what got you here … well, you don’t remember much. But by the end of the night, if this treatment works, you’ll have it all back, the good and the bad. The doctor said you all just need to follow the process and the group will help you remember. But you’ve never seen any of them before. Or have you?

    Penny For My Thoughts is a diceless, improvisational storytelling game where all of the players are patients helping each other recover lost memories to unearth the story. An active game, this may require caffeine and may involve mature themes inappropriate for young players.


    Game #4 -Subject Zer0
    Mutants & Masterminds 2nd Ed
    4 Players
    GM – Doug Hagler

    Doctor Harold Carver, clinical audio records, Project Liminus day 32. Morning observations. Primary subjects numbered 3, 4, 8 and 13 remain neurologically restrained; TENS units continue to stave off significant atrophy. Subjects have not manifested since the incident on day 21 when their restraints were adjusted. Unfortunately, it seems that termination of the project is inevitable – The light fixtures overhead rattle and one falls free, showering Doctor Carver and the four prone bodies with fragmented glass and sparks. Alarms begin to scream through the reinforced door, and Doctor Carver knows it is already too late to save the city. Subject Zero has arrived.
