The Dark Zone (The Sprawl; Friday, 8pm, 4 hours, 4 players)

Those in the know call it The Slice because it’s the sharp end of the bleeding edge. The corporations call it the Dark Zone because they don’t enter it, don't control it, can't see inside. You carry the law with you in the Slice. It’s the warm plastic of your gun, the cool metal of your blade, the white hot sear of the names on your tongue: Curtis and Sever. To which do you pledge allegiance? Either will keep you safe from random violence. Both will open doors. Both will close doors too, and both will make you a target.

Yeah. The Slice. That’s where he is, for sure.

The Sprawl is a game of mission-based action in a gritty neon-and-chrome Cyberpunk future. You are the extended assets of vast multinational corporations, operating in the criminal underground, and performing the tasks that those multinationals can’t do, or can’t be seen to, do. Deniable, professional, and ultimately disposable.

Mission Boston (The Regiment; Saturday, 9am, 4 hours, 4 players)

It’s the eve of D-Day. You are all paratroopers in a stick of 3rd Platoon, Baker Company, 1st Batallion, 508th Parachute Infantry Regiment.
You will be among the first Americans to face the Nazis in occupied France. Tonight you’ll be jumping out of a transport plane together into Normandy. Your mission is to raise hell inland so that the Germans can’t counterattack against the Allied divisions that will be hitting the beach at dawn.
Each of you is carrying nearly 100 lbs of gear -- some of it is stowed on your person and some of it lugged in a jump bag that dangles beneath you as you drop.
Though you’ve been trained well and your morale is sky-high, this is likely your first combat jump.

The Regiment is a WWII-themed Apocalypse-powered game. You play a squad of soldiers in a combat zone engaging the enemy and doing all that stuff you see in war movies. Think Saving Private Ryan or Band of Brothers.

Call me Brede (Conquering Corsairs hack of Dungeon World; Sunday, 2pm, 4 hours, 4 players)
You hear stories of monsters in the water
Endless counts of horrific manslaughter
Sailors tell of the beasts of the sea
What they don't say is that the worst one is me.
Sea Monsters, Captain Dan and the Scurvy Crew

Legend tells of the elven corsair Brede's repeated expeditions into the far west and the wealth with which he returned. You didn't pay much heed until you found this map in a cluttered dock-side curiosity shop. "The Sea of Gold and Jade" says the label. If only the tales were more specific regarding the return of Brede's ship as a shattered hulk crawling with zombies...

Call me Brede is set on the Silver Seas of the Conquering Corsairs deck-building game and using a setting-specific hack of Dungeon World. No familiarity of the game or world is required.

The game will be played in a room wired for sound by Plate Mail Games and will feature PMG's awesome background loops.
