REGISTER NOW for The Alien Assault

Friday 08:11:2019 13:00-17:00

Now open for registration, a spectacular OSR event featuring ENnie Award winning MOTHERSHIP, hosted by very good friend Old Scouse Roleplayer at FanBoy3. If you are signed up for GROGMEET, you should have had confirmation that registration is open.

GROGMEET eve games and the main event will be available for sign-up in October.

The research vessel USS Arkhangelsk is at the start of it’s return journey back to Earth following an exploratory mission to the planet Goloka in the Ivaldi system. The ship’s course has been set, autopilot engaged; prior to entering stasis the crew gather in the cargo hold, the largest single room on the ship, before heading off to their cryo bays. Commander Scott Gorman addresses the crew, commending them on a job well done; the scientific mission was a complete success with the sample in storage being a real coup for the company. Better yet, the reports of a xenomorph presence in the area have been wildly exaggerated. 

A toast is made; champagne would have been nice but would hardly sit well during statis. Standard pre-cryo protein rations are eaten.  All is well and as the crew feel the anti-statis drugs kick in they head to their bunks, drifting into a deep sleep for the long haul, secure in the knowledge that the ships’ androids will see them safely home.

Games on offer this time include:

Vintage classics, such as Golden Heroes, with Simon Burley himself, as well as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Ghostbusters, Mercenaries, Spies & Private Eyes and Expert D&D.

There’s some new-old too with OSR favourites Old School Essentials and Black Hack reviving favourite modules from the past.

The authors of Crypts & Things and Quarrel & Fable will be demonstrating their games with a distinctly old school flavour.

King of Dungeons (currently on KickStarter), by Baz Stevens, will be available in the worlds of Earthdawn AND Glorantha.

2000ad is represented by Dredd games, Strontium Dog miniatures shoot-em-up and the macabre world of Absalom

How about playing Dave Morris’ Dragon Warriors in Mythago Wood? or visiting Sanctuary from Thieves’ World? or being an Agent of Excalibur for the secret service in Pendragon.

There’s Blades in the Dark or the Scum and Villainy of Blades in Space.

There’s more – Call of Cthulhu, HeroQuest, DCC and others to be confirmed.
