MouseGuard

Early Spring in the year 1153 and the mouse territories have just survived a military coup led by the traitorous Guard Midnight. The loyalties of several local militias are in doubt while others have been disbanded entirely. To make matters worse, during the coup raiding parties destroyed food stores in the Western Territories leaving many settlements on the brink of starvation.

Your patrol has been summoned and tasked with conveying honey, a queen bee, and some drones overland to start an apiary in beleaguered Elmwood. The honey will help feed the starving townsfolk and produce delicious mead while the bees can be used as an interim defense if Elmwood is attacked. Under good conditions it’s a four-day journey, but weather-watchers have warned that heavy snows are due. Delay, however, is not an option.

Heroes are rarely made and even more seldom born. Not till after they die do mice sing of their tale.

Witch: The Road to Lindisfarne
It is the year of our Lord 1350 and an unholy plague sweeps across our beloved Britain. Measures have been taken to contain and eliminate it, but still families must surrender their mothers, fathers, sons and daughters to the mass graves.

They say that one in three have been marked for death. But marked by whom? Are the sick being punished for their sins by God? No, this foul curse is the work of the Devil and his wicked agent, the Witch.

The people pray for an answer, and within the great city of London, the source of the vile plague, God may have given it. A woman has been taken prisoner by the Church after confessing the use of Witchcraft to bring the blight upon us.

Three days have passed since then and during this time the heads of the church have been in consultation without rest. Today they emerged and gave their counsel. The woman must be taken in a caged cart to the Holy Island of Lindisfarne. Once there, an ancient ritual will be performed to cleanse this land of her and her black plague. It will take two weeks to reach the site, but as the sun breaks the horizon on the Sabbath then the Witch will face her absolution.

This is the story of that journey.

My Life With Master

At the margins of a misty lake, at the boundaries of a treacherous mountain, a mansion stands.

The red castle of the beast, The Scarlet Devil Mansion!

Thunder booms as lightning arcs through the moonless night sky. Nestled on the far side of the misty lake, this imposing European structure looms menacingly over the oriental countryside of Gensokyo. It's gothic architecture and lack of windows strike fear into the hearts of the village folk. The few windows it has are stained blood red and the clocktower bell rings only at night. Those who know of it, know well to stay away.

But just who is this Scarlet Devil who lords over the Manor?

What of the lives of those residents and servants who reside within?

Surely they must all be monsters...

Fragged Empire

A ship, believed to be a medical freighter christened "Carthage" has recently appeared in the Haven system. A ship appearing in the system would not be unusual, except for the fact that it is over 100 years old, pre-dating the war that the races of Haven are finally recovering from. You have been tasked with exploring the ship and finding what secrets it has been hiding for the last century… before someone else gets there first.

You live in a galaxy 10,000 years in the future, where humanity has long since died out, victims of their own hubris, succumbing to genetic erosion. Before they faded away, they passed on their legacy in the form of other, powerful creations. These creations fought with one another, in turn creating races to fight for them using their own understanding of biotechnology and values. After the culmination of the war, both sides, beaten and bloodied, looking at a galaxy torn asunder, simply left. The four races of Haven find themselves picking up the pieces, banding together with former enemies in the name of survival.
