Each of the Major Arcana of the Tarot has its own story to tell. Taken together, they create a self-contained world, spinning in the formless void that gives birth to archetypes. This world is coming to an end. If nothing is done, all will be lost. A new world must be designed to replace the old; a hard enough task by itself, without the conflicts that have been simmering...

Two characters. One foxhole. Forty five minutes. No GM. Gunner & Sarge is a short intense larp of surprise twists set in the mittle of an alien battlefield. Comes with a soundtrack which needs to be played during the larp.

So, he worked with Chanukah Harry to call a meeting of all the... (read more)

Take all of the great 50's B-movies like "I Was A Teenage Werewolf," "It Came From Above," "Assault on Party Beach," and even worse fare, and place in a blender. Puree for 15 minutes. Pour the mixture (colloquially known as "schlock") into a bowl. Add large sprinkles of angst, romance, and actual horror. Bake in the feverish mind of... (read more)
It is the age of exploration. Battling navies roamed the high seas, looking for trouble and unaffiliated seamen.
Don’t look at me like that. I said “seamen,” not “semen.”
“IMPRESSMENT!” is a game of stealth recruitment into four rival navies. You could be pressed into service by:
Tetrana is a small but ancient and prosperous kingdom. Its most distinctive feature is its strong caste system, which divides every individual into a rigid caste based on affinity to one of the four elements: Air, Fire, Water, or Earth. Each caste has rigidly defined roles and a strict place in the social hierarchy.
Most unusually, however, every 100 years a mystical Convergence of the four... (read more)
