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

You can read Part 1 HERE

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.



Title: Moonlight Narcissus

Author: Eoin Moore

System: D&D 5th Edition

Age Rating: T for Teens and Older

Suitable for Beginners: Yes


You, a devout servant of Lathander, arrived on the shores of Chult many months ago.

Your goal was to reopen a long-abandoned abbey and resume its mission: to provide medicine and education to the local people and, in doing so, convert them from their heathen beliefs to the light of Lathander.

Things have not gone smoothly. The locals remember the last mission with disdain, and while some accept your services, none of them seem convinced by your god’s promises. The land itself also seems to reject you: your crops refuse to take root in its soil, the weather is oppressive and there are reports of terrible monsters lurking in its dark, mysterious jungles.

One day you are summoned by Celestia, your Mother Superior. She has asked you to investigate the source of a mysterious flower, with seemingly magical properties, that the locals treat with great reverence. In your investigation you will visit strange places, face tremendous adversaries and determine the fate of this fledgling mission.

Content Awareness: Religion, Colonialism

The Tomb of the Profane One was once a place of horror, where countless adventurers went to disappear. But times change, even if Liches don’t.

These days, the once isolated Dungeon exist well within city limits, and a steady stream of adventurers has left the place in disrepair; the traps are broken and abused, the minions have left their stations and the upper floors of the Dread Tomb are populated with squatters, food vendors and gift shops. Even worse: rent is overdue. With just hours before a group of government-licensed adventurers arrive to repossess the Dungeon, the Profane One has taken desperate measures.

You have been summoned onto the scene; the most powerful magic workers from across the ages, ressurected with a simple task; fix up the Dungeon and fill it with the most devious traps you can conjure, before the champions of the realm arrive to snuff out your second chance at life
