High Combat Play
This will be lavish three-day, mystical, holiday-themed mini-camp! Think Gawaine and the Green Knight meets Krampus meets the Mari Lwyd and tradition of the mummers and wassailers, all within the excitement of an Adventures in Cardboard battle game in the evening! After each game will be songs and stories for the player's entertainment. And on the last night, the Winter Solstice, there will be food, music and theatre for campers and their families afterward.
All across the Realm, and particularly in old Arkoland, Yuletide tradition demands the hosting of rambunctious hunting games between convivial villages. As the dying year is supplanted by the new one, hunters compete for New Year's fortune as they stalk the Wild Stag of the Wood. However, after sunset, these activities rouse a beast out of its slumber each night, and the hunters become the hunted! Those who solve a desperate group quest, before too much time passes, may avoid or overcome the beast for a special Yuletide blessing, while those who lag behind may not live to see the New Year!
Join us for our first evening gaming event! Build arms and armor by the hearth in the short light of afternoon! Hear the horns call you out to the hunt in the dying light! And after sunset... beware the beasts!
Joyous, mystical and terrifying - a different beasts emerges each evening before campers merrily romp back to the Chalet fireplace for music and yuletide festivities!

Curse of the Terrorhorns
Known as the Na Féauns in the Wyddic language of the west, the Terrorhorn mountains have always been avoided by the people living near them. For centuries the uneasy alliance of Wyddic and Iztanic strongholds on the periphery kept watch on the accursed things of that land, until the watch grew sleepy and a creeping doom arose in nearby Morgaunt Leesh, strangled all living beings in that stronghold and spread toward the jeweled city of Hirulan!
Can you unite against an unknown foe in a time of conflict, mistrust and betrayal?

Domini Arborum, Imperial Custodians and Shoppers
In our last episode, bio-engineered flora managed to wrest control of Fauna Orbital Station from the Bot-anists in charge, but not before several custodians managed to escape the destruction with vital battle data. The station's descent to the planetary surface was cushioned by landing on, and crushing, a local megamall. Though Fauna Station was destroyed, most Domini Arborum survived and quickly adapted to their new environment... and with a new-grown eye to wiping out the sleepy, little, slipper-wearing denizens. Can the custodians organize these hapless locals before it's too late?
Nerf and Melee Combat
An assortment of over ninety nerf guns and gear will be mixed with melee combat and armor in this adventure themed after a century of popular science fiction soap operas.
