BOOT HILL 3rd edition 

Matthew 12:43: Wild West Role-Playing Game, one of TSR Inc’s forgotten gems. Boot Hill is a game of grand adventure in the American Frontier; a world of cowpokes, gamblers, sheriffs and gunslingers. I’m going to run an original adventure based in the official setting Promise City.Matthew 12:43

Assault on Lunar Outpost XIII: A team of Humakti Ducks have formed a death squad to claim a strategic stockade in the hills of Dragon Pass. With Orlanthi companions, they seek to negotiate the eviction of the current denizens, a band of trolls lead by the feared Uzko, Ugrham who has been raiding tribes in the region. Force maybe necessary.

Can the outpost be secured before the Lunar army returns to reclaim it as its own?

D&D 5e

Trouble Shooters: Rumour has turned to action in the city streets now, as your guild finds itself under attack. There can only be one Thieves Guild in the city, so the time has come to put an end to this insult. As the Grandmasters ‘troubleshooters’ you have been tasked by him personally, with finding these upstarts and putting them down, permenantly. Lets hope your combined talents are up to it.

The Lexington Hotel: 1933 G-Men celebrate the nabbing of notorious Public Enemy Number One  Al Capone for tax evasion. Meanwhile in Lakefront City frustrated Federal Agents strike upon using cons to rob Al Tolino’s crooked books from under the City Kingpin’s nose while he hosts his daughters wedding at the swanky mob-owned Lexington Hotel.

‘So you want to join the Alliance eh? A Rebel’s life is not an easy one.  Ill-equipped, outnumbered, hunted, and with no refuge.  Rebels must constantly battle the forces of the Empire.  But the Rebels hold little chance for victory.  The Empire’s reach is nearly boundless, its power overwhelming.

Even so, all across the galaxy, courageous people like you enlist in the Rebellion, determined to halt the spread of Imperial tyranny.  You must join the Rebel Alliance.  But how?  Where?  When?”

This is a modified version of the ‘Rebel Breakout’ adventure from the 1987 edition of the Star Wars RPG core rulebook, but using the 1996 ‘revised and expanded’ 2nd edition rules .  The adventure is designed for 4-6 players and I’ll provide PC templates to get us quickly into the action.  So draw your blaster, ignite your lightsaber, and jump into the cockpit of your battered X-Wing.  There’s Imps to be battled.

GM: @Asako_Soh


Stolen Moments: Duke Avan Astran of Old Hrolmar needs adventurers to help him uncover an ancient Melnibonian tomb. An adventure set in Vilmir with a noble man whose obsessive interest in the Bright Empire may get him more than he bargained for? Your chance to adventure in Michael Moorcock’s young kingdoms. Be a nomad from the weeping wastes, an agent of chaos and invoke Arioch himself to intervene in your adventure, or even a crippled begged from Nadsokor. Demons, mad sorcerers and even madder gods await you.

GM: Judge Blythy
