Von Zeppelin's Last Hurrah

A Cthulhu Freeform for a dozen Aeronauts by Philip Glass

Berlin 1925: Leopold von Zeppelin, the happy-go-lucky patriarch of the well known family of engineers, is not quite dead yet. But it can only be a matter of time. On his 89th birthday he invites friends and family to join him in his newly developed airship prototype for a last tea time above the clouds.

Given that the stars happen to be right that evening, what horrors await the crumbling patriarch and his party in the wild blue yonder?

The Hero Wars

A multi-day Glorantha FreeForm by Jeff Richard

The year is 1628. The world-conquering Lunar Empire is reeling from horrific disasters, and the magical adventurer Argrath the Liberator has gathered his companions to bring war to the Lunar Heartland. The Hero Wars are in full swing - with heroes leading armies, scheming against each other, and adventuring deep into the mythic foundations of Glorantha. You are one of these heroes - your adventurers are the doom of the world!

In this four-day ongoing game, you play one of the great figures of the Hero Wars. Argrath! The Red Emperor! Jar-Eel! Harrek! Jaldon Goldentooth! The Feathered Horse Queen! The Inhuman King! And many more whose names have gone down in legend or infamy! The game is part FreeForm and part tabletop RPG, with even a little bit of a wargame thrown in just for good measure. Certain game actions occur at fixed times, otherwise plotting and actions take place around your collective schedules. The Doom of Glorantha is upon us, and rides with you!
