Hyphen-Con VII: Bring Out Your Vote

Post by devlin1 » Fri Mar 11, 2011 12:01 am

Okay! So here's our list of 18 prospective games. A ton of variety here -- arguably a more interesting range of games than you might find at, say, Strategicon. That's right, I said it.

You have three votes to spread around, so use them wisely. We can't enforce that three-vote limit, so you're on your honor to not be a dick about it.

Voting ends March 20th!

Operation Blackbird (Lady Blackbird)
Can the world's best secret agents stop the evil organization B.E.D.L.A.M. from taking over the world with their Ultra-Lazer Cannon?! 60's style spy adventure using the Lady Blackbird system.

Hijinx in See Wod (4eD&D Gamma World)
Mutated Killer Whales and hive-mind penguins.

Ducktales: the RPG session (PDQ)
There's trouble in Duckburg!*

Dread Not (Dread, 2 jenga towers)
England, 1888. Bandits, Death, and a Runaway Train... then things start to get BAD.

Danger Patrol, an awesome free-form RPG where you play members of a retro-future super-police organization called... THE DANGER PATROL!

White Pallet, Ivory Horns (Hackmaster Basic)
You're band of newbie adventurers is heading to the hot spot of action in the kingdom, Frandor's Keep, but on the way you get caught in a small village in the rain, where thick mud makes travel difficult. However, a merchant in town seems to have lost some supplies to goblin raiders, and wants your help. Adventure calls! Will you answer?

Exalted: Dreams of the First Age (FATE)
Before the Usurpation the Solar Exalted ruled and created one of the greatest civilizations man has ever seen. Play a god during the height of their reign when they seek out one of their own who is newly exalted.

Firefly: Back in the Black (Cortex+)
River has taken off in a shuttle and left a note "went to hang with Crissy." The crew has to chase after her (again) but do they risk their delivery in the process.

Devil's Gulch (BRP)

Cthulhu Dark-Black Bird Horror
A Cthulhu rules lite...errr Dark game that does not need huge character sheets but a name tag.

Lady Blackbird
Help Lady Blackbird escape her betrothed, Count Carlowe, as you fly through the aether seeking her pirate lover. Play the big damn heroes as you hit your keys and tag your traits in this gaslamp fantasy of avoiding Imperial entanglements.

The Kerberos Club: The Gauntlet (FATE)
You are four young friends growing up together in Victorian London. But even the divine queen can't curtail the strangeness creeping into the world. Even you four are touched by it: an unnatural taint that gives you powers. You are Strangers seeking entry into the Kerberos Club which is made up of Strangers like you. And though it is an egalitarian forward thinking organization, getting in requires you to pass a trial, a test of your resourcefulness. You must run The Gauntlet.

The Pillage of Hommlet (Cortex+)
The Village of Hommlet has grown up around a crossroads in a woodland. Once far from any important activity, it became embroiled in the struggle between gods and demons when the Temple of Elemental Evil arose but a few leagues away. Luckily for its inhabitants, the Temple and its evil hordes were destroyed a decade ago, but Hommlet still suffers from incursions of bandits and strange monsters... AND DRAMA! Because this is Cortex+! Smallville kills D&D and takes its stuff in this return to an old classic.

Slave Pits of the Undercity (Old School Hack)
It is time to put a stop to the marauders! For years the coastal towns have been burned looted by the forces of evil. You and your fellow adventurers have been recruited to root out and destroy the source of these raids. But hundreds of good men and women have been taken by the slavers and never heard from again. Beware, lest you suffer their fate!

Shadowrun (FATE)
A Mirrorshades and Pink Mohawks style game using FATE rules to deliver a high octane game of Shadowrunning action. Magic and Machine, meets Metahumanity on the neon lit, rain soaked, mean streets of Seattle.

Day After Ragnarök (FATE)
Know, O Prince, that between the years when the Serpent fell and the oceans drank America and the gleaming cities, and the rise of the Sons of Space, there was an Age undreamed of, when nations guttered low and flared brilliant across the poisoned world like dying stars&#8212]
Cthulhu wrote:
Slipstream: Lost Fragment (Savage Worlds)
The crew of the Argos look on in horror as their ship blasts off from this tiny jungle world fragment. The first mate has betrayed them, and they've been left stranded on a tiny worldlet with no supplies and civilization to be found. How will they get off this rock and retake the Argos before their treacherous first mates sells it to the highest bidder?


The Laundry Files: A Queue to a Kill (BRP)
In the last two weeks, three Laundry agents have died under mysterious circumstances. Each was last seen at the local DVLA (Her Majesty's DMV equivalent). A team of raw recruits has been dispatched to investigate the issue, and learn the horrifying secret of their disappearance.

That's what Gamex is for. It's the Hyphen-Con overflow.

I put in for Danger Patrol and Dread, because I love me some unusual indie-flavor gaming, and Slipstream, for the old-school gamer that still lives inside my soul (and doesn't pay rent, damn it.)

Okay, so no Exalted. Sad face.

I want to play that at a Strategicon, Chris! (Gateway in Sept?)
