You will be creating a Jane Austen-ish character with a clear motivation. Over the course of a week’s long society party in Regency England, you must complete your goal: Is it to marry for love? Money? To marry off your useless, layabout son? To get laid? To be the talk of the town? To insult everybody and have a great time?

Much of the story will revolve around Eligibles, those young bachelors and bachelorettes that set Society all a-twitter. But there is a role in every story for the sneaky servants, overbearing Grand Dames and nefarious rakes as well. Come have fun in Regency England!

Elve Days of Christmas

[Yes, I get it is early. It is called planning ahead. We will start in December.]

A fun, festive game with an international feel, allowing players to explore their inner elf. And you will never see “The Twelve Days of Christmas” the same way again…

Santa has gone missing - can our heroes ensure Christmas arrives on time?

It will be a light, fun game for a lot of players.
We will start on around the 4th December. Our game will see our characters preparing for Christmas from 14th December. Each “day” in the game will be covered over 2 days in real life - its ok if players do not get to post that often. Christmas eve will be played out 24-26th December so no-one has to post on Christmas Day (though it might be fun to!) and Christmas Day itself will be played on 27 and 28 December.

The Guild-Mages

The guildhall doors BANG as they open and in trudge several adventurers - tired, aching and covered in slime. They hold the head of the beast they’ve slain aloft. It slathers them in more gore, but the room hollers and cheers, raising their drinks in recognition of their triumph.

Being a guild-mage is a pretty tough job. The work is full of magical triumphs and magical mishaps. It’s varied and unpredictable. The only constant of guild-work is casters doing what casters do - Learn magical crafts, attain magical items and hunt magical creatures.

(This game uses the same cardset and player principles as Jinxed and takes place in a similar fantasy setting.)

Five strangers took a hike across the dark mountains, only four remained unharmed after the rock gave way. They have four cans of beans, climbing equipment, ham and cheese and one water bottle. They rested at a cave for the night and have no where to go.

The usual assignments are filed as with every other year.
However, not quite as usual.
The first submitted is a rather impressive yarn.
So one by one, the students seek to out-do one another, as each successive submission becomes more embellished than the last.
By the time it comes to show-and-tell, imagination has totally run riot…

One of the most polarizing figures in Emerald City is Maximillian Mars. Now a successful industrialist and businessman, Mars was once a dangerous supercriminal known worldwide as one of the smartest and most dangerous people alive. In recent years, Mars claims to have gone legit, and his charitable and business dealings seem to support this. However, some people are slow to trust the former villain. What’s more, some current villains see Mars as a sell out whose new direction shows that he’s no longer got the skills and determination that once made him so deadly.

Now that Emerald City is slowly gaining a larger superhuman presence, Mars is a wild card. Will he try to direct and aid these new heroes, providing funding, insight, and support? Or will he become an obstruction — or even fall back into villainy? Current trends seem to suggest the former, but not everyone is convinced that Mars will remain reformed forever.

Have you noticed on Storium how many games go really well for the first scene. Often this continues to the second scene, but it can start to slow down. It can be a challenge to keep going. If you are still going strong past scene 4, you might make the shortlist for a Nobel prize.

So this story is constructed for just one scene. We can have all the usual enthusiasm of building our characters and starting the game, and tell our tale in one scene.
Of course, if things go well we can add in a second scene.
I am not ruling anything in or out, but I would see us having a sequel if people want to continue.
Just imagine it - a Storium game that actually goes the distance and never runs out of steam!
