My games at Conception 2009

 0 Conception 2009. Naish Holiday Village, Highcliffe, Christchurch, Dorset, UK. 
Wednesday 28th January - Sunday 1st February 2009. 

Here are my games that I'll be running at Conception 2009.


Thursday 09:00 – 13:00 Slot 2
'Street Urchins of Ancient Pavis' by Darran Sims narrated by Darran Sims. 
Glorantha: HeroQuest adventure for 6 players. 
Newcomers very welcome. Maturity preferred. 

"Abandoned by Family, Ancestors and the City itself, the street urchins have a very hard existence in the shattered remains of Ancient Pavis. They live on the discarded scraps from the city dwellers and *other* denizens of the Rubble, a place where life is very, very cheap. 
The only future they have to look forward to is a quick death somewhere in the unforgiving ruins of this once splendid city. 
The River Flock has a nice hidey-hole under the Sculpture Garden, a safe haven in this deadly world. Yet many of the street urchins are turning up dead, their bodies discarded.
Now a stranger in red is poking around the upper entrance. 
Just what is he after and is he responsible for the deaths of the other urchins?"


Friday 19:00 – 23:00 Slot 7
'Cropcircles and Lights Out' by Darran Sims narrated by Darran Sims. 
Supernatural: HeroQuest adventure for 5 players. 
Newcomers very welcome. Maturity preferred. 

"Police reports are coming in from Fulton County, Georgia of cars driving at night without their headlights on. When helpful members of the public flash their lights in courtesy to warn the drivers they become victims to the drivers.
All that seems to be left are the abandoned cars with their headlights smashed out. No trace of the occupants have been found. Forensic reports do confirm that the blood found in the broken headlights is canine, not human.
Are these incidents related to the gang tags found in the recent spate of crop circles that also plague the area?"


Saturday 09:00 - 13:00 Slot 8
'Rocks and Hard Places' by Darran Sims narrated by Darran Sims. 
Serenity: HeroQuest adventure for 7 players. 
Newcomers very welcome. Maturity preferred. 

"Why do my gorram jobs never go smooth? 
So we’re on a scavenger hunt in the biggest scrap yard in the ‘verse.
Gettin’ to the place was slow and troublesome, gettin’ past the guards was a flip and findin’ the needle in the haystack was shiny.
The trouble is we have competition for our prize and our rivals ain’t playing fair. 
Also the boss, a particular Crime Lord with his own Skyplex and a very nasty rep, ain’t happy with us either.
To top that there seems to be another bunch of Feds on our tail and we’re stuck - a certain turn of phase come to mind."


Sunday 15:00 – 19:00 Slot 12
'We are the Boys...' by Darran Sims narrated by Darran Sims. 
Dad's Army: HeroQuest adventure for 6 players. 
Newcomers very welcome. [im-]Maturity preferred. 

"Excuse me, er, attention men. If you kindly all fall in, that would be rather nice. Thank you."
"Right men, GHQ has organised a series of military exercises, under the watchful eyes of Colonel Pritchard, to test the Walmington-on-Sea platoon’s ‘fighting fitness’ and to see if we can use diverse tactics and strategies in the field. 
"Well, that is a given of course with my experience, but there is a little nuisance in that we are paired off against the Eastgate platoon. We must deal with their Colonel Blimp mentality..."
"His name is Captain Square, a Rotarian you know?"
"Thank you Wilson!
"Well men, I think that you will not let me down? Corporal Jones get the platoon to fall out. Wilson, WILSON come with me!"
