Hi all,

Games on Demand this year has a bigger team and so hopefully a bigger variety of games.

Some of you considering signing up are probably keen to know what we'll have. I'll be asking everyone else to put their list of games soon.

In the meantime, here's what I'll have:
Apocalypse World: great character-centered post-apocalyptic action
Fiasco: the game of ordinary people with powerful ambition and poor impulse control
InSpectres: What if there was a reality TV show about ghostbusters?
Lamentations of the Flame Princess: Old school recreation, with emphasis on weird fantasy and dying horribly.
Freemarket: Life in a space station where you can do anything you want, unless your reputation gets trashed and you get exiled forever.
3:16: Space marines kill aliens! HOOAH!

Let me know if you want to know more about any of them.

Plus, if you have a special request this might be a good place for it - that might tip the balance for one of us on a game we are still on the fence about bringing along.

I don't have anything nailed down yet, but I'm thinking:

Dogs in the Vineyard

World of Conan - a Conan hack for Apocalypse World

Tunnels and Trolls: Marathon - One dungeon, thirty pre-generated characters, an entire day of no-holds-barred, open-entry, dungeon mayhem. There will be deathtraps.

Steal Away Jordan - if you don't want to play, it's probably because you are racist.

Mike, how about Monster of the Week?

I shall be bringing my own game: The Silver Kiss of the Magical Twilight of the Full Moon. It's amazing, come play it. Four people take on the roles of emo teenagers falling in love, two of them are supernatural creatures.

I will also be happy to run Best Friends by Gregor Hutton which is a genre flexible game where you play best girlfriends. In the past I have run it as: Teen girl band, Star Wars, superheroes and villains in the big brother house and Robyn Hood. It's good, silly fun.

In a pinch I can run Fiasco or Wuthering Heights.

Simon, if I end up running LotFP while you're running T&T, I say we have a bet on who can get the highest bodycount. Are you in? Or are you a wimp?

Well, MotW is not ready to be played yet. It's just nearly possible I might get it revised before then, in which case I'll bring it along.

Wuthering Heights is indeed a roleplaying game, and an excellent one at that. I based my Pride and Prejudice game off it.

You can see it here: http://www.unseelie.org/rpg/wh/index.html

I will be offering...

Dirty Secrets - Scratch the surface of the city and you'll see the corruption hidden below thin beauty. Adultery, theft, blackmail and of course murder. Everyone has a secret. Some are deadly.

44 - A Game of Automatic Fear - Your neighbour is not your neighbour. Your husband is not your husband. They used to be. You can survive the conspiracy. Know your enemy. Know the steps to take.

In Spaaace - It's just like regular SF, but with 73% less dignity.

A Wilderness of Mirrors - Get the mission, make the plan, execute the plan. All you have to worry about... is each other. In the world of spies, enemies may become friends and friends may always have been enemies as you become lost in a Wilderness of Mirrors.

Dust Devils - The greatest foe you'll ever face in the Old West may be your own devils.

Zombie Cinema - When hell has no more room, Satan will send the souls of the damned back. The dead shall rise, and they hunger for your flesh. You won't all make it.

I'm also considering, for some of the longer form games I'm bringing (Apocalypse World, Freemarket, Flame Princess, etc), offering a second session if the first one goes well.

This will (a) show off the way the game works over multiple sessions and (b) give us some more story than a single 3-hour session can manage.

Does that sound like a fun plan to any of you potential games on demand players out there?

(I guess Simon's T&T marathon will work similarly)

The games I'll probably have available to run are:

Primetime Adventures: The greatest TV that never was! In the interests of speeding up set-up, we'd probably use one of the following settings:
    Monster Hunter Extreme! Our protagonists are the frontmen and technicians of a reality TV show where they hunt monsters!
    Brooklyn Borscht An exiled Russian prince or princess and their entourage (including some supernatural monsters?) living in 1940s New York.
    Seven Samurai Ripoff A fantasy village is in peril from an overwhelming force, and has sent someone to collect heroes to defend it; but the "heroes" have their own reasons for fighting. We'd probably run a game from somewhere later in the season.


Or I could run:

Panty Explosion: You're all Japanese school-girls. At least one of you is psychic. You must survive supernatural horrors, shadowy cabals, and the crushing hot-house of the Japanese educational system. Successes are narrated by your best friend, and failures by your rival...

Ocean: You wake up in an underwater facility. You must work out (a) who you all are, (b) why you are here, and (c) what are the monsters that are hunting you... A cooperative storytelling game.

I could also run Inspectres (either straight, or as 1950s military), or Shadow of the Mountain Witch (either straight, or as a noir police procedural).

I pitched to Steve last night an InSpectres concept that might be fun one session - to focus more on the reality show side of the game, we could run 2 InSpectres franchises in competition for a generous cash prize! (Svend, if the numbers come up, we could even have 3 teams, woo!)

OMG competing Inspectres teams pick me pick me!!!!

I am exceptionally good at scaring off rival ghost hunting companies.

But can you handle the criticism from our panel of expert judges, flown in direct from InSpectres global HQ?
