Friday Night  7:00-11:00+ PM  (Slot B)

NYPD Occult Crimes Unit (Squad 4): Case #47 * Call of Cthulhu 5th Ed.
B-RPG-3 * $ 2
Game Master: John Whitehead * 6 Players * Teen14
The city of New York has had crime since a certain crooked real-estate deal in 1614. And weird crimes since about the same time. So much so that the NYPD has formed the Occult Crimes Unit. Most of what they do is sort through the New Age or heavy metal or magazine rack satanic drek to find what ever greedy, stupid, incompetent human problems are responsible for what ever crime was committed. #Most of what they do. Not all.

    The crimes that aren't just human stupidity, or human greed, or human anything, are the purview of OCU Squad 4. The very unfortunate members of the NYPD who know that not all evil has a human face, that humans are not the first nor the last beings on this planet, and that world is not all it appears to be. Guess who you are.

    Two women have been murdered in two days. Sounds like typical homicide cases. Except, both bodies completely drained of blood. Guess who gets this cases? Yeah, you. And its only going to get worse. Beginners encouraged.

Saturday Morning  9:00 AM - 1:00 PM  (Slot C)

Pray for Dawn * Chaos 601 AD
C-RPG-2 * $ 2
Game Master: Adam Cybulski * 10 Players * Mature18
Waking up with no memories on a pile of corpses tends to be a downer, and it's staring to look like that was the best part of your day. The sun is setting, an acid storm is coming, vampires and zombies lurk around every turn, and your plasma sword won't turn on, if you’re going to make it through the night, you'd better Pray for Dawn.

    Chaos 6010AD is a gritty post-apocalyptic cyber-goth horror game and definitely not for kids. Beginners encouraged.

February, 1945. The Third Reich is crumbling, but news of a last-ditch Nazi doomsday weapon has spurred Allied intelligence into action. A team of agents are about to parachute behind German lines and link up with local partisans. Their target: the Black Monastery of Toberg, now occupied by the SS and used for research into weapons more terrible than they can fathom. If they succeed, the world will never know. If they fail, the nearly-victorious Allied armies could be obliterated by forces beyond their comprehension. No pressure. A World War II era Delta Green adventure for Call of Cthulhu.    Beginners encouraged.
