Offering games

Send us your game blurbs via the UK Roleplayers forum or any of the other places where we publicise Concrete Cow and we'll put them here!

Note for GMs

If your game has pre-generated characters, please take a look at their demographics. If the pre-gens are mostly straight white men, ask yourself why. If that's what's required by the scenario, fine. If not, please include more diversity in the characters.

If you game involves content that some people might find upsetting, please note that in the game blurb.

If you don't want someone at your table, you have every right to ask them to leave, at any time. You don't have to provide a reason, but please try to remain civil. Ask an organiser to step in if it's needed.

During a game, if you notice that one person's behaviour is making someone else uncomfortable, please don't ignore it. Do something about it. Take note of the harassment policy.

The GenCon Games on Demand advice and parts of How to Run Safer, Accessible, and Inclusive Game Conventions go into much more detail, even if it is rather US-centric.

The Games

Note that, depending on circumstances, not all of these games may run on the day.

Morning

I Love the Corps: 28 TRAINS LATER

Not a typical I Love the Corps game, this is Thomas the Tank Engine meets 28 Days Later! Set in the Isle of Sodor, in the modern day, can a group of people trapped inside Annie escape alive? A comedy survival horror. Not for the faint of heart, or for kids.

GM: Christopher Dean
Players: 4-6

Afternoon

I Love the Corps: Pandora's Box

Prepare yourselves for a psychological sci-fi thriller. It is 2450, and you are the Unstoppables, infantry veterans and propaganda darlings of the Corps. You committed a heroic action that helped win the Minos Campaign, and are doubly renowned as every squad member survived three years of one of the deadliest campaigns. The game opens as you awaken from stasis after being sent off to fight in another campaign. You are being urged by marines to evacuate after an attack on their base, and the story propels from there. But where the hell are the lab techs that would normally wake you and check you out and why is the lab door blasted down? Only one way to find out!
