Goblins of Zarth – Idol Hands

Image by Herbert Peppart, Tabletop Dynasties

Goblins of Zarth is a unique fantasy setting for 5th edition where goblins rule and all other races have receded to live on the fringes of society or been reduced to work in service of the social elite.

At the heart of this world sits the vast labyrinthine city of Zaranthurul; capital of the Zarth Empire. Here, decadent nobles play dangerous games of control while armies of administrators, skilled craftspeople and labourers work tirelessly to keep the world turning.

The Goblins of Zarth setting swings between satire and fictional realism; it embraces the chaotic nature of goblin society while defining the beliefs and cultural nuances that stop the Zarth Empire from collapsing in on itself.

In Goblins of Zarth: Idol hands, you delve deep into the stinking bowels of Zaranthurul to discover ancient secrets, long-buried by a march of progress that spans 2000 years of goblin history.

The Goblins of Zarth setting and Goblins of Zarth: Idol Hands is written by Herbert Peppard for Tabletop Dynasties.


Call of Cthulhu

In Call of Cthulhu, you take on the role of everyday people who become investigators of the unknown – whether they are prepared or not. The mysterious places, people, and situations you encounter are often not what they seem – you and your friends are the only thing standing in the way of diabolical cults and cosmic monsters from beyond space.

This year’s module is The Necropolis.

EGYPT, 1924: A stone slab shifts unexpectedly, trapping the investigators in a tomb in the Valley of the Kings. Only then do the explorers discover that they might not be down here alone. Can you escape before doom engulfs you all?

The Necropolis is a 1-2 hour demo session offering players an introduction to the Call of Cthulhu tabletop RPG.


Suggested age range is Teen 13+. 
No experience required; will teach rules to new players. 

Find out more about Call of Cthulhu at the Chaosium website.

Vampire: The Masquerade is the original and ultimate roleplaying game of personal and political horror. You are a vampire, struggling for survival, supremacy, and your own fading humanity—afraid of what you are capable of, and fearful of the inhuman conspiracies that surround you.

If you refuse to deal with it, it will overcome your mind and drive you to terrible acts to slake it. You walk this razor’s edge every night. Dark designs, bitter enemies, and strange allies await you in this World of Darkness.

In A Strange New Hunger, you find yourself in a group of people left in a dark and dirty basement. There appears to be one way out through a trapdoor, but it is hot and it sounds like a fire is raging on the other side. You need to get out and fast. You also need to find out why some of the people you are trapped with smell so delicious… This one-shot will introduce you to the game system of Vampire the Masquerade 5th edition (V5) and the World of Darkness as seen through the eyes of a fledgling.

Decaying Orbit

On a distant space station, an AI awakes. The engines are silent, the data is corrupted, and the station is falling into the star. As players, we piece together what mysteries, joys, and horrors occured on board. Then, in our last moments, we decide what the AI salvages before it is consumed by heat.

Decaying Orbit, developed by Sidney Icarus and published by Storybrewers, is a scene-based story-telling game, inspired by stories like Sunshine, Alien, Observation, and Ad Astra. Clever prompts and evocative art make every scene dramatic. Three distinct ship types promote vastly different stories. Playing as a wide-reaching computer intelligence allows players to frame stories in unique ways.
