Welcome to the first part of our list of RPG and LARP Blurbs, descriptors of original scenarios created specifically for Gaelcon by wonderful writers!

These scenarios are designed to fit within a three hour play session, some are suited for beginners and some are not so we’ve marked them. We also have age ratings so con goers can decide if they want a game that deals with adult issues or something a little more PG.

Age Ratings are:

A: All Ages

T: Teens and Older

M: Mature: Adults Only

A “Suitable for Beginners” tag does not mean all ages can play, please pay attention to the age ratings too.

We also have a Content Awareness to highlight if there is anything involved in the scenario some players may find problematic.

These games will be run only once in a time slot (which is yet to be determined) but multiple tables may be on offer.

You are Tremere. Only you may have secret knowledge of souls. And then you eat them because you have a gaping maw of the nothing-dragon where you own soul used to be.

No House has ever initated you into its secrets, but these mystical desert weirdoes might just have the knowledge a “young” lich needs to found their own secret tradition of soul-eaters. And hey, even if it’s a dead end, no-one will miss these dropouts, and you’re getting hungry.

Night City, City of dreams, if those dreams are Nightmares!

Your gang was never big, or important, just mostly a group of friends that hung around and looked out for each other. Just Kids on Kabooki messing around. When Jimtoe joined Militech you thought he had made it, thought he was going to be rich and live the life of a Corpo. You knew that would be the last you saw of him. He was off to much better things than you.

That was why it was so weird when Billbob got the message from him. He seemed scared, alone, but that’s the thing about the Mudchute Choom. They always look after their own.

And once a Mudchute Boy, always a Mudchute Choom.

Content Awareness: Drugs, poverty, body modification and Horor, distopia


Title: The Articles of Colonisation – A Battlestar Galactica Larp

Author: Xander Cosgrave

Age Rating: T for Teens and Older

Suitable for Beginners: Yes.


The Cylon Rebellion began on Caprica, it began with technologists and ambition, but it spread throughout the colonies like a wildfire. Everyone had them. Everyone was using them. But their initial attack was uncoordinated and messy, it caused chaos, but there was nothing decisive, and the Cylons with the ships they built when they had control over Scorpia Yards fled.

But they are returning and now Caprica has brought a proposal to all the other colonies, to unify in the face of this new external threat, to build a fleet that can protect the colonies and stop the war that is seeping in from the edges of the system. It is a time of great opportunity, and it is a time for action.

So Say We All
