Helpful tips:
  • If you plan on GMing a game be sure to have pre-generated characters on hand for the players, so you don't take up that time generating the characters during your session. If there are special requirements for your game please let us know as well, and we'll post that along with the game summary.
  • Be aware that we can have more games than there are sessions, since we have tables in the atrium for games as well as the ability to set up tables in 105. So don't fret too much if you do see that the session you wanted is already taken.

  • Players: 3-7
  • Ages: 16+
  • Description: The Benedictine Cloister of St. Peter at Tiberias was built upon a foundation of bones. Now, the blood of one more has been added to its mortar--a Frankish abbot and missionary named Eustace of Coligny, whose body was found flayed within the church sacristy, his blood befouling the holy instruments of faith. You, along with every other traveler at St. Peters, are now suspects. Find the true killer and ferret out the meaning of this foul crime before the executioner's sword falls upon you...

The newest Avatar--the only Waterbender in a blasted world--has received a mysterious summons to Zao Fu, a Earth kingdom city which once stood as a technological marvel to rival Republic City itself. But none have come or gone from Zao Fu since The Fall, and the iron dome that surrounds it is all but impenetrable. What could this message mean? Does Zao Fu still stand? And what might they need from the Avatar?
