Possible Games for Orccon 2012

With Gateway 2011 behind us, I’ve started thinking about games for Orccon 2012 in February.

Because of my work schedule, I don’t think I can run three game, but I can definitely swing two.

Here are my ideas, I’d love to hear feedback from readers about which games you’d be interested in playing.

Tales of the Corazon del Oro: Spider Nazis on Mars

  • System: Savage Worlds.
  • Setting: a custom pulp/sci fi setting where physics are thrown out the window and adventure abounds.
  • Synopsis: The part British/part American crew of the Corazon del Oro has been sent to infiltrate a German colony on Mars. Informants say there’s a secret weapon being developed in the idyllic neo-Bavarian hamlet. Can the crew discover this secret weapon? Can the crew sabotage it? Can the crew speak German?
F-Troop: The Shadow Over Fort Courage
  • System: Savage Worlds, Realms of Cthulhu.
  • Setting: Post Civil War America.
  • Synopsis: The end of the civil war was near, when quite accidentally, a hero who sneezed, abruptly seized retreat and reversed it to victory. His medal of honor pleased and thrilled his proud little family group, while pinning it on some blood was spilled and so it was planned he command F-Troop. Then shit got real and people started disappearing in Fort Courage.
Gilligan’s Island: The Doom That Came to the Island
  • System: Savage Worlds, Realms of Cthulhu.
  • Setting: 1960s Desert Island
  • Synopsis: One of the seven castaways has gone missing. It’s an island, right? How hard can it be to find one person? Strange pentacles drawn in the sand. Forms seen moving in the dark seas at night. Something that should be asleep is stirring. Something is terribly wrong. Hopefully Gilligan won’t fuck it up.
The Tulupian Avian Part Two
  • System: GURPS
  • Setting: Traveller (GURPS Alternate, Circa 1108).
  • Sysopsis: A year ago, xenoarcheologists on Forine discovered a object of Ancient psionic technology in the form of a smiling statue. A statue that has recently shown signs of sentience. It killed hundreds before it was secured. Now Forine is in the throes of political upheaval, as an extremist religious sect is poised to seize control of the Parliament and the Chancellery.  Not only will this sect have control of the planet, but they will gain control of the Tulupian Avian … or will the statue gain control of an entire planet? The hapless crew of a merchant trader has been hired for a covert mission. The goal is simple: secure the Tulupian Avian.

    I’m lovin’ that Gilligan game also. Being stuck on an island makes for extra scariness and seems like a great setting for a con game.

    I am digging the Gilligan Idea but that may be because I have been thinking of creating a Gilligan’s Island of Doctor Moreau game.
