Proposed short-block games

From Milton Keynes RPG Club
Jump to navigation Jump to search

This page is for games that are on offer for the next short block. The Proposed Long Block games are on a separate page. If ideas in here sound interesting to you, please contact the GM in question.

These are the proposed short block games for Block 2: 25 June 2024 – 9 July 2024. Because many short-block games are organised ad hoc on the night, this is necessarily incomplete.

Week 1

(Including pitches for the next long block.)

The Dragon of Icespire Peak

In this final short block for Icespire Peak, the team will search for a legendary dragon-slaying sword and slay the white dragon atop the Hold!

Note: If you are interested in playing please bring a level 5 character ready to play, though due to the nature of the first-come-first-served short blocks, I cannot guarantee your place at the table. As this is continued from the previous short block, I would like to give priority to returning players.

Week 1: Frozen Thief

Menace Under Otari

The small seaside town of Otari is known for its fresh fish and skilled sailors, but above all, it’s a big logging town, providing valuable wood to the nearby metropolis of Absalom. But for you, Otari is home. You grew up playing on the docks, getting lost in the nearby woods, and hearing the fantastical stories of travelers from faraway lands, tales of terrifying dragons and virtuous knights. Such adventure always seemed so distant—until today!

Word has begun to spread around Otari that there’s a problem down at the Otari Fishery. Some are saying that some sort of beast is lurking in the basement, feeding on the stores of salted fish. Folks are worried that whatever is eating the fish might get hungry enough to eat the fishers next!

You’ve received a letter from Tamily Tanderveil, the owner of the Fishery. Inside is a desperate plea for help. With the town guard busy protecting the loggers, she needs a few brave souls to venture down into the basement of her warehouse and put an end to the beast that’s feasting on her fish! Do you have the courage to face the menace under Otari?

An introductory adventure with pre-gen characters, suitable for beginners.

Tales from the Wildsea: The Jade Lotus of Brantu

A game of discovery and wonder amidst the brambles of a treetop sea.

You'll play Wildsailors - a motley crew consisting of: "humanity's battered and weathered descendants, brambled cactus-folk gunslingers, silk-covered spider-folk and all manner of stranger things" (to paraphrase the books). Sailing across the lingin tide of the Wildsea, you'll engage in strange ruins, deal with weird creatures and commune with all sorts of diverse cultures. For this adventure, you're all part of a skiff dispatched to the ruins of Brantu to obtain the strange, restorative lotus flowers that bloom within this ruin of the Pre-V. The local town needs it, since there is a strange affliction stalking the windswept streets of the only island in this sea of green for miles around!

This will be a fairly low-stakes drop-in/drop-out game.

About the only thing you'll need is a set of d6s and a willingness to roll with the bramble waves!
