Han Cluster: Reunification!
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

Your crew is taking some downtime, all doing your own thing: repairing broken friendships on Edenic, visiting family on Onyx, or just on your way to participate in a unique, dense-atmospheric flying competition on the planet Schaest. But then a well-organized attack by a powerful terrorist group bent on “reunifying the human race” at all costs creates a-Cluster wide crisis that threatens the lives of millions. You may be on vacation, but you are the only ones with the unique abilities required to stop it. Seconds matter, and it’s all up to you. This is a new sci-fi adventure of wild action, uncommon heroism, and heart—set in my own imagined human future: The Han Cluster. We will use the Savage Worlds ADVENTURE EDITION (SWADE) system. Pregenerated characters are provided. This adventure is suitable for players ages 13+. No experience with Savage Worlds is necessary. Possible Content: Suggestive Sexual Themes, Mild Language, Violence. Role playing and character arcs encouraged.

Pedigree: The Animal Breeding Boardgame
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

Pedigree is a board game based on actual genetic biology and real-life decisions of animal breeding to produce show ring champions and top-dollar animals. Each player is a breeder trying to make the most money by raising the best animals and building reputation through winning trophies. Your ability to breed champion stock will be determined by your management and mating decisions, along with the luck of genetics. You pick the best animals based on their phenotype (appearance), but their phenotype is an imperfect predictor of their genotype (DNA). You won’t find out the true genetic potential of the animal (prove the animal) until they produce offspring; unless you use DNA testing in advance. Each generation you compete for the Trophy against other players in the Show Ring, and champions build your breeder reputation causing your animals to command higher prices.
For the Western themed RinCon, we will be breeding horses or cattle - players choice.

Legends of Kralis: Hero's wanted
Limited Capacity seats available

The Age of Heroes has past, and the great tide of enlightenment and prosperity it brought with has sunk
below time’s horizon. This current age is a time Between; between light and darkness, ignorance and
wisdom, good and evil...life and death. The horrors of the old world that have lain sleeping in the dark
corners are waking up, and new shadows join the old in this twilight time.

All is far from lost, though. Many relics of the past stand strong, swirling with energies eldritch and
arcane, immune to the erosion of time. Tomb delvers and treasure hunters unearth ancient secrets, and
mystical scholars push the boundaries of knowledge and skill to shine a light across the world.
Technologies new and old are invigorated, and in some cases melded together, wielded alongside the
sword and shield.

While countless empires have fallen, many great cities still stand across the face of Ta Los. And while
creatures from black rifts and forgotten times rise, it is the heroes of this age that will meet them. With
steel and spell, the cry of battle and the thunder of guns, shall this new age be forged.
What will you make of it?

Come found out what the Legends of Kralis has in store for you. Come choose your own adventure! Will you delve into the depths of the Tav Aedhun in search of the Gravestone?
Or will you race against the werathi void pirates to reach the Thunder Idol? Or will you scour the sewers beneath Dardura Sheva in search of the missing power core of a local merchant's ship?

Sage and Sand
Limited Capacity seats available

Sage and Sand is a role-playing game set in an alternate distant future on planet Earth. Nuclear war has occurred, with several countries having struck all over the globe. Millions of people died from the initial blasts; resulting in nuclear winter, urban skirmishes, and of course the abominations. No one knows for certain their origins. Few abominations have been killed for research, none captured alive. They have crawled, flown, and slithered out of bomb blasts and caves after the blasts. Humanoid in appearance and yet very un-human, to notice one long enough to describe it usually means death. Alien contact seems to appear almost daily now as well.

This role-playing game focuses on story-telling and character development. There are certain "factions" controlling the planet, with each character belonging to one of them. Players in a party struggle for basic survival, and try to piece back their lives after chaos erupted barely over a year ago. Come play in some Post-Apocalyptic fun!

Union Stockyards: 1886-1927
Limited Capacity seats available

A medium-weight economic worker placement game based on the history of the great Union Stockyards in Chicago. In its heyday 40,000 people worked within this one square mile and 100,000 animals passed through daily, supplying 80% of all meat consumed in the USA. You play one of the "Big Five" meat packers trying to increase your profit margin by using all parts of the animal, while manipulating and using the supply-driven livestock market prices to your advantage. You must continuously battle the labor unions, and sometimes deal with labor strikes. You can campaign for politicians to increase your influence (turn order). Historical events occur each round to the benefit or frustration of all players. This is a playtest using an ugly prototype of an unpublished game, which will hopefully be a beautiful published game in 2020.

Meltwater: A Game of Tactical Starvation
Limited Capacity seats available

Meltwater is a tactical abstract/wargame for two players. Session is for multiple parallel games. Designer will sit in for odd number of players.

“Restraint? Why are you so concerned with saving their lives? The whole idea is to kill the bastards. At the end of the war, if there are two Americans and one Russian left alive, we win.” ~Gen. Thomas Power, U.S. Strategic Air Command 1957-1964

19XX: The unthinkable happens. The world is scoured clean in nuclear fire. The oceans are poisoned for generations to come. One last patch of habitable land remains: Antarctica. The remnants of humanity huddle together in a fragile patchwork of research stations and refugee ships. But even here, the Cold War survives. And our civilization may not.

In Meltwater, two players take command of the shattered remains of the superpowers, struggling for control of the ice. Simple diceless mechanics let players displace, corner, and isolate their opponent’s survivors. Here, hunger is a crueler weapon than gunfire, and the barren tundra can only support so many souls. And every turn, radioactive contamination pushes in from the coastline, shrinking the available space and forcing the belligerents closer and closer together.

In the end, there is only either submission or annihilation, and whatever world is left.

Legends of Kralis: The Dawn of Adventure
Limited Capacity seats available

The Age of Heroes has past, and the great tide of enlightenment and prosperity it brought with has sunk
below time’s horizon. This current age is a time Between; between light and darkness, ignorance and
wisdom, good and evil...life and death. The horrors of the old world that have lain sleeping in the dark
corners are waking up, and new shadows join the old in this twilight time.

All is far from lost, though. Many relics of the past stand strong, swirling with energies eldritch and
arcane, immune to the erosion of time. Tomb delvers and treasure hunters unearth ancient secrets, and
mystical scholars push the boundaries of knowledge and skill to shine a light across the world.
Technologies new and old are invigorated, and in some cases melded together, wielded alongside the
sword and shield.

While countless empires have fallen, many great cities still stand across the face of Ta Los. And while
creatures from black rifts and forgotten times rise, it is the heroes of this age that will meet them. With
steel and spell, the cry of battle and the thunder of guns, shall this new age be forged.
What will you make of it?

Come found out what the Legends of Kralis has in store for you. Come choose your own adventure! Will you delve into the depths of the Tav Aedhun in search of the Gravestone?
Or will you race against the werathi void pirates to reach the Thunder Idol? Or will you scour the sewers beneath Dardura Sheva in search of the missing power core of a local merchant's ship?

Your crew is taking some downtime, all doing your own thing: repairing broken friendships on Edenic, visiting family on Onyx, or just on your way to participate in a unique, dense-atmospheric flying competition on the planet Schaest. But then a well-organized attack by a powerful terrorist group bent on “reunifying the human race” at all costs creates a-Cluster wide crisis that threatens the lives of millions. You may be on vacation, but you are the only ones with the unique abilities required to stop it. Seconds matter, and it’s all up to you. This is a new sci-fi adventure of wild action, uncommon heroism, and heart—set in my own imagined human future: The Han Cluster. We will use the Savage Worlds ADVENTURE EDITION (SWADE) system.
