The Face of Oblivion

Facilitator: Catherine Pegg
System: LARP
Players: 6-8
Round: 2

Blurb: 2277, May 17, Asteroid Habitat Aoraki Mountain, Captain’s Address to Crew:

“People, we’ve done this before. The system newcomer Oblivion, whatever it’s mass, is just another flying rock. Killing rocks is our trade – we have the technology, the manpower, and the will. Earth will not fall on our watch.”

2278, April 4, Asteroid Habitat Aoraki Mountain, Captain’s Address to Crew:

“… in light of Oblivion 3′s failure due to catastrophic equipment malfunction, technical crews will be inspecting Aoraki’s infrastructure early this year. We trust that our crew will behave in the spirit of Aoraki as Oblivion passes through our orbit…”

2278, April 4, Captain’s Private Log

“This isn’t over.”

For more than a hundred years the people of Earth and its surrounding space habitats have been fighting the Rock War – a collection of solid masses are passing willy-nilly through the Solar System, many of which could profoundly damage the mother planet. Most have been neutralised – humanity is winning!

But now the largest planet-killer of them all, code-named Oblivion, has defeated the last three attempts to divert it. Soon it will pass through the orbit of Asteroid Habitat Aoraki Mountain, almost close enough to see, and the Captain has one last desperate gambit in mind…

But oh – this will cost. Join the habitat’s officers in the last two hours before an irrevocable decision is made. Sometimes there aren’t any good choices.

What compromises will you make, in the Face of Oblivion?

Classification: PG
Scare: 2
Suspense: 5
Splatter: 1
Strange: 1

Do you have what it takes to make the hard choices in the Face of Oblivion? This original, small-group LARP from Catherine Pegg comes highly recommended after a stellar showing at the Kapcon earlier this year.

Harvest

Title: Harvest
Facilitator: Dale Elvy
System: EPOCH (http://epochrpg.blogspot.co.nz/)
Players: 4-6
Round: 2

Blurb: Every year the good people of Hudson’s Point celebrate the bounty of the land with a spectacular Harvest Festival. This year is no exception; scarecrows are beginning to show up on street corners, in front of homes and stores and just about anywhere you can put a stake in the ground. It’s all part of the fun, which culminates in a costumed torchlight parade. This Fall, Hudson’s Point is the place to be!

EPOCH is a game of character-driven survival horror. The goal is to deliver a tense and scary experience in a single game session. EPOCH players are active participants in the creation of the game atmosphere and have complete control over the creation and ultimate fate of the characters.

Classification: R18
Scare: 4
Suspense: 4
Splatter: 5
Strange: 2

An exciting new scenario from horror maestro and EPOCH creator Dale Elvy is coming to Fright Night. EPOCH is an innovative, Ennie nominated RPG which delivers a tense and scary experience in a single game session.

Having participated in the play-test for 'Harvest' myself, I can attest that all is not right in the town of Hudson's Point. Not everyone will survive the harvest - will you?

Dead Horse Corner

Title: Dead Horse Corner
Facilitator: Andy Millar
System: Trail of Cthulhu
Players: 4-6
Round: 2

Blurb: The death and suffering on the Western Front provides of the backdrop for many dark and unsettling mysteries. Most of these are dismissed simply as the fears of scared men, but others seem to take on a life of their own.

When the British forward observation post at Dead Horse Corner suddenly falls silent, it’s up to the brave men of the Royal Fusiliers to reinforce the post and work out what has happened to Lieutenant Somerset and his twenty men.

However they will soon find that there are far worse things than snipers, gas attacks and artillery strikes to worry about in the desolation of no-man’s land.

Classification: R16
Scare: 3
Suspense: 3
Splatter: 4
Strange: 4

In the centenary year of World War 1, Dead Horse Corner explores the death, madness and despair of the awful period of our history.
