Brian Chummey, Montsegur 1244

Do you renounce your heretic beliefs and do you wish to receive the forgiveness of the merciful Father? 

In March 1244 this question was posed to several hundred Cathars. They had surrendered to the army that had besieged the castle of Montsegur for more than nine months. More than two hundred answered no, and thereby chose death by fire. Who were these people that chose to die for their belief?

In Montsegur 1244 the players collaborate to create a story about who these people were. Each player takes on the role of one of the besieged Cathars who will face the choice between life and faith.

William Lee, Bedlam Hall

Finally, Summer has come to Bedlam Hall. That means it is time for Lord Blackwood’s annual fox hunt, when guests - wanted and unwanted, human and inhuman - come from far and wide to take part in wholesome sport and jolly revelry.

This year, Lord Blackwood has promised his guests a special treat. His Lordship has been abroad lately and has brought back some new ideas that he promises will make the fox hunt a jollier romp than ever. Pip pip, tally ho!

BEDLAM HALL is a role-playing game based on the Apocalypse World engine, where players take the terrible role of servants for the Blackwood family who just can’t stay out of trouble, both natural and supernatural . FOX HUNT is a BEDLAHM HALL summer-time adventure where the poor Blackwood servants will have to keep the family and their guests from shooting each other’s heads off while making sure the picnic is served on time. (No actual foxes shall be harmed in course of this adventure. Can’t say the same for player-characters though.)
