Dragonmeet Games Update

Due to circumstances beyond my control I will only be running an afternoon game session at Dragonmeet:

The Pirates - In An Adventure With Aliens
Diana: Warrior Princess rules


With Earth under attack by deadly aliens, Queen Buttercup of the former People’s Republic of Florin decides to issue Letters of Marque and Reprisal to any pirate or privateer prepared to rise to the challenge. The adventurers are retired pirates, immortal and bored; this might be their chance for new adventures, if they can sort out a few minor problems such as not actually owning any ships. And there might even be money in it, anyone who calls themselves “gold” and flies around in pyramids probably has some treasure lying around…

4-6 players, 2-3 hours.

Note - this was inspired by a management game run by SF author Jo Walton (author of Tooth and Claw on which FFX was based, and other fine books) at a con many years ago, in which a crack team of experts had to rebuild Florin's economy, and ended up getting the Dread Pirate Roberts to do most of the heavy lifting.

Many apologies to anyone who was planning to play in the morning session.
