Shadows on the Nullarbor – VtM Actual Play
Tasked by Prince Sarrasine of Sydney with protecting sensitive goods, you board a specially chartered running of the iconic Indian Pacific train. Taking the trans-continental railway from Perth to Sydney, via Adelaide, a group of vampires must ensure the goods arrive safely or face the consequences. But what dangers face they on a train crossing the middle of Australia? And why didn’t they just get freighted across?
Something doesn’t add up, but will our vampires be the ones to delve into the mystery, or will they simply play the dutiful guard? And who is going to stop them, regardless of their choice? Scenario by Nephthys Nile. Storyteller Nepththys Nile.

Panel – Evolutions of Gaming: How new designs will change games as much as technology
4pm – 5pm
It has been clear that the gaming landscape has been changing, and that COVID-19 has only supercharged that change. It’s common to see discussions about how going digital and long distance has changed tabletop gaming, but increased use of digital tools is not the only development in games media. Megagames, ARGs, and hybrid or crossmedia games are starting to make a deep impression on what it means to be a game in the modern day. Join Lee Cope, Sidney Icarus, Nellie Seale and Dr Lucy Sparrow, games academics and experts, for a discussion of the future of games as a medium, discussing both the difference that digital tools can make and the opportunities for mixing gaming locations, styles, and media for a truly innovative future of gaming.
