GM: Richard R System: The Black Hack - 1st Edition Game Code: RPG17108898
Whether from dark sorcery, vile cults, or human misrule, Dunnsmouth slowly dies in the swamp. Within the rot, you will find mysteries, fight evil, & encounter the forces of the Weird. Everyone knows where Dunnsmouth is, but no one in the court knows anyone who's been there. Tax collectors disappear and never return. A dark magic hangs around it in the swamps, but even those sorcerers who've gone to investigate seem to vanish in the gloomy mists. "Scenic Dunnsmouth" is a sandbox adventure setting from Lamentations of the Flame Princess, and The Black Hack is an old-school DIY system from Gold Piece Publications.

GM: Barda R System: Dream Askew - 1st Edition Game Code: RPG17109787
A story game about queer community in a post-apocalyptic world. It's meant to explore themes like livelihoods, experiences of marginalization, & experiences of liberation. Dream Askew gives us ruined buildings, ruined lives, ruined faces, loaded handguns, psychic powers, heartbroken underdogs and turbulent skies, asking "What do you do next?"
Imagine that the apocalypse didn't happen everywhere at the same time. Instead, it happened in waves. It's still happening in waves. You were hit recently. You've fallen out of the society intact. You've found others who you can relate to, and you've banded together with them to form a queer enclave. Gangs roam the apocalyptic rubble, and scarcity is becoming the norm. And just beyond our everyday perception, howling and hungry, there exists a psychic maelstrom. (Official Description from the game's web page at Buredwithoutceremony.com)
