TALISMAN, a sci-fi adventure set roughly 12000 years in the future.

It'll be using the Lancer TTRPG system via Roll20, a "Mud & Lasers" game with a good mix of narrative play and bombastic combat.

If you like the idea of piloting your own giant Mech suit, hacking into terminals with cybernetic implants, or stealing sought-after equipment from powerful MegaCorps, then this is the game for you.

Sometime in the millennium 2XXX, a catastrophic event dubbed “The Fall” decimated most of society, leaving us to struggle in the mess we created.

Those who survived managed to spread their wings and form a great interstellar Union of countless star systems.

The (give or take) 12,000 years it took to build this new utopia were fraught with violence, so it’s no surprise that remnants of these wars still remain today.

You are a newly licensed, fully-fledged pilot of your own personal mechanised chassis (or ‘Mech’ for short).

You could be a rusty engineer from the outer Cascades, a no-nonsense trader from the Karrakin Baronies, or even a simple baker from the deserts of Moonhammer.

Whoever you are, you’ve just been awarded your Lancer License – giving you access to state-of-the-art technology that some could only dream of.

Running your combat in "Theatre of the Mind" a different Roleplaying experience

First off this is not just limited to Dungeons & Dragons, but can be applied to all systems. How To Run Narrative Combat For those used to running RPGs using a gridded battle map and miniatures, running narrative "theatre of the mind" combat can feel both terribly strange and strangely familiar. If we're used to running combat on a 5 foot per square grid, the switch to combat in the theatre of the mind can easily make us feel like something is missing. How can we really know what's going on in combat if we can't see it? The answer lies in the other two pillars of our game—exploration and interaction. We don't set up battle maps and lay out miniatures when our characters have a discussion with an NPC. We likely don't set up a big map and start counting off squares when the characters explore an ancient ruin (although we can!). We don't have visual queues when we're describing how a thief narrowly avoids a poisoned pin while attempting to disarm

Proposed Game: Ghosts of Saltmire

System D&D 5e Game Master Calum Venue: Glanville Hall Wednesday night A mixture of Roleplaying and action, nestled on the coast of the Azure Sea is Saltmarsh, a sleepy fishing village that sits on the precipice of destruction. Smugglers guide their ships to hidden coves, willing to slit the throat of anyone fool enough to cross their path. Cruel sahuagin gather beneath the waves, plotting to sweep away coastal cities. While Saltmarsh slumbers, the evils that seek to plunder it grow stronger.

Proposed Game: Two Wrongs

System Era: Hitman Game Master Mark C Venue: Glanville Hall Wednesday night In this game, you are a hitman, an assassin who eliminates targets for anyone paying the right amount. Whether your skill is stealth, approaching your enemies unseen, firing a bullet from a neighbouring rooftop, hacking automated defences or demolishing a building to eliminate everyone inside, you are always in demand. You might be new to being an assassin, or you might be a grizzled veteran about ready for retirement. None of this matters to the Assassins’ Guild; only that you can complete the job and your team are assigned. With the protection of the Guild, you need not fear retribution once you escape the scene of the crime – the scrubbers have your back. Every trace of you, every piece of camera footage, everyone who will testify that you were there will vanish without a trace. As a result, joining the Assassin’s Guild was never a hard decision for you, even with the possible downsides... When you are in t
