marcus 2013


I appear to be on 999 feedback on eBay. Tempted to buy something cheap to push it over 1000, but it's a bit pointless; it's sales feedback that really counts.

Dragonmeet Games

Finally decided what I'll be running at this year's Dragonmeet


Bring Them Back Alive
Forgotten Futures – Empire of Earth

London Zoo was razed during the Sirian War, but with the war over the Zoological Society has decided to rebuild on a grand scale. Needless to say, some animals will be needed… not just from Earth, but from the other planets. Several lucrative contracts are available, and may appeal to adventurers who find themselves a little strapped for cash. Of course there are likely to be a few small problems…

4-6 players, 2-3 hours.


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 papersky at an SF 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.
