The League of Extraordinary Cats

It’s time for shameless self-promotion! ConQuest NW is in less than two weeks, so I thought I’d invite people to post their game descriptions. I’ll start the ball rolling:

I will be running a game of Cat from Wicked Dead Brewing Company. If you want to know what Cat feels like, click on the image to see a cartoon from A Softer World that (coincidentally) captures the feel of the game.

You play a cat. Cats protect people from things they can’t see; Boggins, specifically. Boggins, like the Man Under the Bed. Players fight to protect humans from the creatures that feed on children’s fears and rejoice in men’s shortcomings. Cats also venture to the Kingdom of Dreams where the surreal is common place, and anythings is possible. The game uses the Advantage system, a simple system using a narrative approach and six-sided dice.

I ran games of Cat at the last two editions of ConQuest NW; you can see photos of last year’s game on Heath White’s Flickr page, here and here. It’s been a lot of fun, and I’ve had returning players. Last year, everyone got to keep their “miniature”.

Here is the program blurb for this year’s game:

The League of Extraordinary Cats: When the Cheshire Cat, Duchess, Orlando the Marmalade Cat, Ame Tomoe, Lion-O and Schrödinger’s cat team up, is there anything they can’t do?

The game is scheduled for Sunday from 11:30AM to 4PM. I will bring a long list of fictional cats to get ideas flowing, but you get to create your own cat character (it’s a painless 10-minute process).  I hope to see you there!

I will also be hosting several time blocks of the Story Game Lounge.  What are story games?  If you don’t know, come and find out.  We have had Story Game Lounges at ConQuest NW, Dragonflight, and Emerald City Gamefest, and they were greatly popular. Everyone who wants to run a certain game comes and makes a pitch, and we play whatever games players are most interested in (we can have several games running in parallel.

We’ll bring lots of different games for people to try.  Games that might be played include: Nine Worlds, In a Wicked Age, Dogs in the Vineyard, Trollbabe, Principia, and too many more to mention.  If you’ve never heard of these games, you should come check one out!

Let’s have some more game blurbs: who’s next?
