D&D 5e In Volo's Wake

Register for In Volo's Wake on Warhorn 

The town of Phandalin, nestled in the foothills to the east of the Sword Mountains, continues to grow since being rebuilt after the devastation wrought by rampaging orc hordes. It recently survived violent gang activity, drow machinations, and even the attention of a green dragon. But can it withstand a new threat, bizarre but no less perilous: the fame brought by a visit from none other than loremaster Volothamp Geddarm?

Six 1-hour mini-adventures for 1st-4th level characters (optimized for APL 1,2,3,3,4,4)

The town of Phandalin, nestled in the foothills to the east of the Sword Mountains, continues to grow since being rebuilt after the devastation wrought by rampaging orc hordes. It recently survived violent gang activity, drow machinations, and even the attention of a green dragon.

But can it withstand a new threat, bizarre but no less perilous: the fame brought by a visit from none other than loremaster Volothamp Geddarm?

This session should include the first two or three of the six Mini-Adventures for 1st-4th Level Characters.

Fiasco - Open Playbook

Fiasco - Open Playbook

System: Fiasco
GM: Violet
Saturday, March 24, at 8am 
Register for Fiasco on Warhorn 

"Fiasco is inspired by cinematic tales of small-time capers gone disastrously wrong particularly films like Blood Simple, Fargo, The Way of the Gun, Burn After Reading, and A Simple Plan. You’ll play ordinary people with powerful ambition and poor impulse control. There will be big dreams and flawed execution. It won’t go well for them, to put it mildly, and in the end it will probably collapse into a glorious heap of jealousy, murder, and recrimination. Lives and reputations will be lost, painful wisdom will be gained, and if you are really lucky, your character just might end up back where he started."

We will select a playset at the beginning of the session based on player experience and preference.

Pathfinder Society

Trouble in Tamran 

GM: Trent Chestnut
Friday, March 23, at 10am 
Register for Trouble in Tamran on Warhorn 

Character levels 1-5

Written by Benjamin Bruck

Less than a decade ago, the Pathfinder Society established a lodge in Nirmathas, an act that infuriated the nation's expansionist rival Molthune. The latter outlawed the Society soon after, and ever since Pathfinders have relied on smugglers like the Varisian entrepreneur Guaril Karela to slip supplies past the Molthuni blockade for both the lodge and the Society's war-torn neighbors. Something has intercepted those shipments. Can the PCs uncover the culprit and save the Society's reputation in Nirmathas?

Content in "Trouble in Tamran" also ties into a special metaplot element from Pathfinder Society Special #6–98: Serpents Rise. Players who have completed that special event are encouraged to bring its Chronicle sheet when playing this adventure.


Shores of Heaven 

GM: Ray Sullivan
Friday, March 23, at 10am 
Register for Shores of Heaven on Warhorn 

Character levels 1-5

Written by Cole Kronewitter

The Pathfinder Valais Durant has lead a troubled existence, ever since the demon-worshipping former venture-captain Thurl fused her body with parts from two demons. Pathfinder agents destroyed one of the demons, bringing some solace to Valais and allowing her to resume a somewhat normal life. However, the remaining demon's essence recently asserted control in an event that could have resulted in great bloodshed were it not for Valais's quick thinking. If the Pathfinders are to restore her to her original form, they need help, and the Society has just a contact who can escort them into the libraries of Heaven itself to uncover a powerful healing ritual. Navigating the customs and laws of Heaven is only the first of the challenges that faces the PCs, for they seek to purge demonic forces from Valais without raising the ire of Heaven's inhabitants or risking the fate of her soul.

Contents in "The Shores of Heaven” also contribute directly to the ongoing storyline of the Silver Crusade faction.


A Case of Missing Persons 

GM: Ray Sullivan
Friday, March 23, at 4pm 
Register for A Case of Missing Persons on Warhorn 

Character levels 3-7

Written by Alex Greenshields

When several Andoren officials vanished, the Pathfinders of the Almas lodge were quick to lend their aid in investigating the disappearances. It’s since become apparent that the officials didn’t leave; they were abducted, and the captors’ trail leads into revolution-torn Galt. The trail grew cold in Woodsedge, where Venture-Captain Eliza Petulengro has gathered a team of agents to renew the investigation. The PCs must rediscover the trail, and in the process they’ll uncover a secret that has long plagued the town.

Contents in “A Case of Missing Persons” also contributes directly to the ongoing storyline of the Liberty’s Edge faction.


Signs in Senghor 
GM: Trent Chestnut
Saturday, March 24, at 10am 
Register for Signs in Senghor on Warhorn 

Character levels 1-5

Written by Kris Leonard

In the port of Senghor, it is taboo to even speak of the accursed ruin of Boali that sits on the other side of the bay, let alone to set foot in its rubble-strewn streets. Yet rumors have reached the Pathfinder Society that the Aspis Consortium has sent agents to search through this forbidden city. Although few people willingly travel to its shores, Boali is far from quiet. It falls to a small group Pathfinder agents to get to the bottom of the Aspis plot without falling prey to the ruin's dangers. Can the PCs bring the Consortiums' true motives to light?

Contents in Signs in Senghor also contribute directly to the ongoing storyline of the Exchange faction.

Birthright Betrayed 

GM: Trent Chestnut
Sunday, March 25, at 10am 
Register for Birthright Betrayed on Warhorn 

Character levels 1-5

Written by Sam Polak

For all its rich history and heritage, Taldor has not always welcomed the Pathfinder Society's inquiring minds. This is especially true of a small museum in Ridonport, birthplace of the legendary General Arnisant, who confronted the dreaded Whispering Tyrant during the Shining Crusade. However, the Society's ally Lady Gloriana Morilla has secured a small group of Pathfinders a unique opportunity to study the museum's relics. All she needs in return is the Pathfinders' investigative skills to uncover the local earl's indiscretions—an earl who proudly identifies as Arnisant's direct descendant.

Contents in Birthright Betrayed also contribute directly to the ongoing storyline of the Sovereign Court faction. This is one of several scenarios that also set the stage for and directly tie into the upcoming War for the Crown Adventure Path.

The Last Hurrah

Register for The Last Hurrah on Warhorn 

One final trip with the boys before Steven gets too sick to do this anymore. Between a pretty powerful storm that sweeps through the area, rock climbing, and spelunking the times where great.  A really great way to end a chapter.  Unfortunately it seems only one thing has gone wrong.  The world up and ended while you all were away.  

Dread is a game of horror and hope. Those who play will participate in a mutual telling of an original macabre tale. The thrill of a Dread game lies within the tension between desire and loss. It is the horror roleplaying game that uses Jenga instead of dice. Pull from the tower and you succeed. Refuse to pull and you fail. The choice is yours. But if the tower falls . . .

Everything starts with a crime. As homicide detectives from the 31st Precinct, it's your job job to figure out whodunit. Today’s taste of criminal intent involves murder most foul. At 12:27 a.m. this morning, someone gunned down Sarah and Hunter Williams in cold blood. You have to follow police procedure to chase down the clues, question the witnesses, and build an airtight case for the district attorney to prosecute. But sometimes evil won’t go down without a fight. You’ve got that covered too.

Put on your cop shades, dramatically...

Weird War II: Mein Hirs

System: Savage Worlds
GM: Darren Miller
Saturday, March 24 1pm 

December 21, 1944.

The Battle of the Bulge is only days old.

The heroes are assigned to man a roadblock at a bridge crossing the Aisne River in the small Belgian town of Fanzel, home to barely a hundred souls. Allied command does not believe the Germans are likely to exert much of a push in that direction, as Fanzel has little strategic importance, and the Aisne River is not a serious impediment to any major offensive, as it is relatively small, and there are numerous crossings.

But what do the reports of ancient standing stones in the vicinity mean for our heroes... and their enemies?

At ShushCon 2016, there were "Dead Men Walkin'". At SushCon 2017, we gave you "All the Purdy Little Horses". For SushCon 2018, I would like to tell "A Tale of Two Killers". Life in the Weird West can sometimes be a meat grinder.

North of Virginia City, Nevada, the land turns dry and mean until a traveler reaches the flyspeck burg of Dante’s Ferry and the banks of Pyramid Lake. But these days, sodbusters who walk that path don’t come back. They just get swallowed up by the shadows.
