Welcome to the Third 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 run by our super GM’s may be on offer.

But now you remember dying, and you don’t remember how you ended up in that pod.

But here you are, in some abandoned facility being chased by the unnatural and the unliving; have you been thrown into the infernal pits of hellish Karzahni or has even Artakha fallen into the vile hands of the Makuta?

All you know is the last you remember you were Matoran, and now you’re Toa heroes.

“In the grim darkness of the far future there is only war”

Far enough from anything important yet close enough to enjoy Imperial protection it has been a peaceful and prosperous planet in the far future of the 41st millennium. In fact the regular tithe has become less of a concern and more of a time of celebration.

That is until now.

It appears the entire Imperial Tithe has gone missing. And with the Emperors representatives arriving soon it is up to you to find out what to do or who to blame. Trouble stirs on the paradise planet and secrets may come to light as you must find a way to… Render Unto Caeser.

A political science fiction larp set in the Warhammer 40k universe for 10-14 loyal citizens of the empire
