SEPT 24: Diaspora Fate kicks off with NODE STATION ZETO



As if September and October weren't packed enough already, we've added another new space opera game to the calendar. We're welcoming a new game master, Patrick Schifano to the table to run an original adventure called NODE STATION ZETO!

He'll be using Diaspora rules for Fate 3.0. Diaspora is a hard science fiction setting. Visit the official Diaspora website to learn more. The publishers have also posted a nice primer on Fate. Here's a brief from Patrick on the setting:
The general setting of Diaspora is a universe where interstellar human civilizations rise, fall, and rise again. Often the great societies of today are built on top of the high-tech archaeological ruins from the civilization before The Collapse of one, or many Collapses.

September: Save reality again and again in The STRANGE Anthology!


Not one, but THREE thrilling Saturdays in September and October we're bringing you A STRANGE Anthology. You'll have three chances to change the destiny of the universe as you travel through "recursions" (alternate realities). Play as one group of investigators that adopts new personas with each jump. It's like The X-files meets Sliders meets Quantum Leap!
 
Each game will be run by a different game master, completely independently so as to offer a different feel to each reality. Here's a taste of what wild world-hopping is in store:

September 10

OUT OF THE BLUE, INTO THE BLACK
It begins as you, neophyte agents of the Estate, find yourselves adrift in a heretofore unexplored recursion, known to it's inhabitants as Blue Prime. What mysteries await you on an alien shore? Surf's up.

October 1

AT THE EDGE OF EARTH'S SHOALS
Travel to the edge of Earth's Shoals that appears to be influenced by alien minds from elsewhere in The Strange--a planet who's own shoals overlap ours. A world where magic and science are indistinguishable.

October 15

THE RIGHTWISE KING
The final leap brings you and your companions face to face with evil personified. One who gave everything to have their revenge on reality.

Join us and play THE STRANGE as it was meant to be played!

All games: 6:30 pm at
