Friday 2 p.m.: Steel and Flesh
Hey, do you know this little indie wuxia game called Rivers and Lakes? No? That’s okay, because I’ve hacked it for sword and sorcery. It uses a quick, easy system that emphasizes drama and cinematic action. No experience playing Rivers and Lakes is required. I mean, I don’t have any, so why should you?
Saturday 9 a.m.: Robo Force
Robo Force is the codename for the UN’s league of highly trained Action Science Commandos. Their purpose: to defend human freedom against Baron Helsingard, a ruthless megalomaniac determined to rule the world at any cost. Led by the daring Atomic Robo and armed with cutting-edge science, Robo Force never gives up the fight! Rohhh-BO!
Sunday 2 p.m.: F3: Return to the Expedition to the Sinister Temple of the Reptile Cult on the Borderlands
OMG you guys, there are totally some more problems that only a party of adventurers can solve! This ode to AD&D (via Fate Core) is a sequel to a couple games I ran at the last OrcCon. If you played in those games, come reclaim your character! If not, come claim a character before those returning players beat you to it! Experience with Fate Core not required.
