System: Troika! (Tabletop RPG)
GM: Graham Ruston
Where & When: Room: BOLDHOME, Slot: 2- Friday evening
Mature Themes: Yes
Player Led: No
The famous (i) Mandelbrot Scholarium of Supreme Wizardry, learning that a former professor has vanished from her wizard tower further down the Shadow Coast, is assembling a multi-talented (ii) party of junior staff, college servants and other hangers on to investigate – and, if appropriate, to attempt a rescue (iii)! That’ll be you then…
(i) At least locally.
(ii) “Ill-assorted” sounds a bit churlish.
(iii) Or perhaps steal her stuff before someone else does.
TROIKA! is a simple game system and no prior knowledge is required.
Genre: Psychedelic science-fantasy.
Adult Themes (Minor): Let’s be honest – wizards, with their kewl powerz and wretched lack of social responsibility, can be total jerks. We may encounter some or none of: magical torture, enslavement of sentient creatures, mistreatment of domestic staff, mild body horror, implied kink, or reckless behaviour endangering the entire universe. Actual on-screen ickiness level is low, but maybe not for youngsters.
