Role Playing Games

Role Playing Games are at the heart of Conpulsion. There are usually many games on offer, from D&D to bleeding edge Indie Gaming. System based, homebrew and freeform, we intend to have it all.

As part of Conpulsion Lite, we will run a block of one-shot games on Sunday 10 April, 2022, from 1 pm to 5 pm BST.

You can sign up to a game by joining our Discord and letting us know which game you’d like to join.

Games will take place on the Conpulsion Lite Discord Server:

Description: Your crew has been hired to investigate recent damage to Alkanz Alkhafiu Station. A treasure trove of technology lost in the Long Night, any Faction would love to persuade this independent operation to sign up with them.

Figures in White Glass

System: Trail of Cthulhu
GM: Phil Masters (He/him)
Description: The year – 1783; a CERTAIN GENTLEMAN, an antiquarian and scholar of Chthonic Sciences, is lately returned to London from the Kingdom of Naples, bearing with him an ANCIENT AND MYSTERIOUS ARTEFACT, which has caused a stir in the town. Master Wedgwood, of Stoke-on-Trent, is most curious on this theme, in part because Doctor Darwin, of Derby, theorises that it is associated with the ELEUSINIAN MYSTERIES, but in greater part because it may be a Challenge to his Mastery of Certain Arts.

And thus, Agents of the Lunar Society are commissioned to travel to the Capital. But WHO among the Nation’s Lords, Libertines, and Miscreants may be trusted, and WHAT may the Truth Make Free?

A preview of BOUNDARY OF THE DARKNESS, the upcoming alternative campaign frame for Trail of Cthulhu.
