Bedlam Hall is a macabre role-playing game set in the Victorian age, where the players become the hapless servant staff of the Blackwood Family, tasked with maintaining a semblance of order within the House while vying for prestige and privilege among their fellow staff members. The Blackwood family celebrates Halloween, including setting up a fake village so the children may trick or treat. The staff must cater to all of the family’s whims, regardless of the cost to themselves. Find out who may get fired or promoted in this special one shot.
The diary of Ezekiel de la Poer, a colonial-era French necromancer hanged for child-murder in 1736 was stolen at the home of an emeritus professor in the small town of Rosa, Alabama.

A remote hypercorp research facility buried under the surface of Mars holds dark secrets and Firewall wants to know what they are. Before a team of sentinels can enter the base though, a Firewall hacker must open the door for them.

The base is already on lockdown and most of its personnel have mysteriously disappeared.
A group of private investigators in the 1970s are hired to look into the new members of an exclusive country club. They have wealth, power, stolen art, and connections to organized crime. They also have sinister plans. The investigators will face everyone from low level street gangs to a conspiracy they never would have imagined…at the Country Club.
A new group of takers has formed in the enclave of Trabajo, looking for work. A client in the Recession wants them to retrieve a painting, Thomas Eakin’s “Cowboy Singing” from a museum in Denver. Venturing into the heart of a city is never easy or safe, but the pay is worth it.
This is the first of three games I ran in different systems, linked by famous paintings, a triptych if you will. Enjoy!
