Ok, everyone feel free to pimp your games here! Please remember the following:

* a max of 2 submissions per person
* any game, any game system - we're pretty open around here
* bring your best pitch, because it won't get on the schedule without some votes!
* also, please note whether you would be down to run 2 games if you submit 2 and both are voted in, or if you would prefer only one. Doesn't always come up, but helps us organize it if it does.

Pimp until: October 13th (bring your A-game people!)
Vote: Oct 14th - 22nd (primary vote, run-off afterward if needed)
Prep: from the final vote tally until the Hyph (for those lucky GMs with winning pitches)

Ok, post those pitches!

Tribe 8: Children of Fire

Far in the future man kind was enslaved by gods and freed by goddesses. Everything has changed and the people have formed into tribes under the 7 fatimas. However, you belong to the eighth tribe; a tribe of outcasts that have been rejected by fatimas.

Now, the child fatima, Agnes, has been kidnapped by the demon-like Z’bri and it is up to the fallen to help bring her back.

Dresden Files Accelerated: Shalam Colony 1887

In Las Cruces, New Mexico John Newbrough established a utopian colony a few miles north of Las Cruces. He claimed an angel guided his hands to write Oahspe: A New Bible. The book inspired the founding of Shalam Colony. The colony included farmland and thirty-five buildings. The primary purpose of the colony was to raise orphan children in a strictly controlled environment "to become sinless leaders of the world."

However, Shalam Colony is more than it seems and the White Council suspects a Warlock might be behind it. Dresden Files in the Old West.

Villains and Vigilantes 3.0: The Revolutionaries

It's 1776, and the American Revolution has been going on now for about a year. But, the British are already sick of this conflict, and want a quick, decisive ending. To that end, they have sent Lord Alistair Malice to the city of Roanoke, where he has a devilish new weapon. But you, extra ordinary men and women with skills and powers far beyond those of mortal men, have come across Lord Malice's plans. You must now band together with your fellow Revolutionaries to stop him, before all is lost.

(Note, this will be a low powered Supers game, with characters more along the lines of Zorro and the Lone Ranger than the Avengers, and definitely nothing like the Justice League).

---------------------------

Torg Eternity: Day One

Six strangers are enjoying a boat trip in the East River near Manhattan when what can only be described as bridge made of vines crashes into Queens. Now, dinosaurs and lizard men are storming the streets and New York, killing anyone who get's in their way, while the landscape of New York itself starts to turn into a jungle. Trapped on board the boat, your first goal is clear: Get to shore, and survive this chaos.

The Expulsion of the Jews - Summer 1492 (In Nomine - Angelic PCs)

In the summer of 1492, Spanish Catholicism is ascendant. Moorish Grenada has been recaptured. Spanish Jews have until August 1492 to convert or depart. These events resulted in conflicts, both moral and physical, for those Celestials with skin in the game. Can you provide aid to the persecuted People of the Covenant? Should you? Will you? And at what cost?

------------------------------------------------------

The Trial of the Templars - Spring 1310 (In Nomine - Angelic PCs)

In 1307, almost the entire Order of the Knights Templars were arrested and charged with "supremely abominable crimes", including in no particular order, sodomy, obscene kissing, and the denial of Christ. After almost three years, the trials are coming to a close, finally garnering the attention of the Archangel Michael. Can you aid these mystic Crusaders of Christ? Should you? Will you? And at what cost?

Pitch 1
---------
Apocalypse World, 2nd edition

They say Oocla used to be a place of learning; of science; of healing even. Since the Fall it's been none of those things. From the Matthias Death Garden to the B-Ruin stadium, all the way to Fernando's Doom Valley and the Great Drowning Ocean beyond, our people have always avoided the North. But now, with the Tezkat Hombres pushing up from the South, we are desperate for new resources to drive back the invaders; or failing that, a new home that is more defensible. The land of Califa is burning. What do you do?
