Vala  Adventures – Spring Holiday Program


Week 1

Monday 20th September

Time Bandits BK Excalibur, Sword of Power

Travel back through history with the Time Bandits, midgets who once served the Supreme Being (and starred in a film!) but were fired for their practical jokes during the creation of the Universe. Having stolen the Supreme Being’s Map of All Time and Space they now travel through history stealing its greatest treasures!

The legendary King Arthur is said to have fought one last great battle, against his own son, the treacherous Mordred. But forget about King Arthur! The Time Bandits are only interested in his greatest treasure, Excalibur, the Sword of Power. It’s not getting thrown into the water to be reclaimed by the Lady of the Lake if our mischievous midgets have anything to do with it!

Will your character get their hands on King Arthur’s Sword of Power before it is returned to the keeping of the Lady of the Lake, mistress of legends?

Tuesday 21st Sept

Vikings in North America The Micmac Princess

Set a square sail upon the longship of the Norse Sagas and travel back in time to days when the same Vikings who carried war, plundering and conquest throughout old Europe and even into Asia explored the mysterious shores and hinterland of a New World across the Western Ocean. There they traded goods as well as unfortunate blows, with the native peoples. Come relive some of the heady days of the Norse in North America.

How will your character contribute to the founding of a new colony and the forging of alliances with the indigenous people?

Elf Towers of Dawn The Shining City

Sites of mystic wonder, the Elf-Towers mark nodes of earth-power flowing through the Ancientmost Realm. 

Join a band of adventurers, the Peregrines, and answer the Summons of the Towers- to raise the sleeping power of the Towers, and to heal The Realm and prepare the Way for the Choosing of a High King and Queen to lead us against the Evil Empire that threatens the Realm’s destruction.

Sailing up the Great River towards the splendid capital of the Ancient Realm, the Peregrines escape pursuit by Imperial navy ships and sudden attack by giant ravens, only to be shipwrecked on the rocky shores of the Keepers Isle, the isle of tombs, where it is said every six feet belongs to a chief or a king or a queen who died long ago, and the only living beings are ‘the Keepers’, mysterious members of the ‘Black Branch’ of the Realm’s druidic religion. 

Do you have the making of a true Peregrine? Come solve the mystery of the Keepers Isle.

Thursday 23rd September

People of the Old Stone Age Summer Heights

At the beginning of the last Ice Age, tribes of early humans learned and thrived amidst changing climate conditions and challenging environments which disrupted traditional ways and demanded adaptation and innovation in beliefs and technologies. Summer is upon the Tribe of the Cave Bear and so they pack up their camp and trek into the green pastures of the High Country, alongside their fellow Tribes and herds of animals. But this year’s annual migration promises to be like no other, as a force of warlike, masked ‘Renegades’ emerges from the caves of Summer Heights and lays claim to the territory.

What special skills might your character develop to help your tribe survive and thrive at the start of the Ice Age?

Vala Knight School Fall of the Templars

Like their Templar ancestors before them in medieval times, students in today’s world accept secret invitations to join an ancient College of Knighthood which remains hidden deep in the countryside of mysterious time-hallowed Wales.

Inspired by their experiences in the legendary Arthurian past, the students have won their first skirmish with the Enforcers, striking a first blow against the Illuminati-influenced regime of Sir John D’Eville.

But it soon dawns on them that this is but the first battle in the war that is to follow before Temple College can be free once again…

Crew of Odysseus Isle of Circe

Take up the role of one of the adventurous crew onboard the Greek hero Odysseus’ ship sailing back to their homeland after the decade-long Trojan War.  Legend tells best of the actions of the great hero himself, but we can easily imagine that he was at his best when supported by wily companions. 

After a string of misfortunes brought about by the sea god Poseidon, Odysseus’ once-mighty fleet has been reduced to but a single ship and its crew. Imagine their joy when, stopping at a lush island to resupply, they discover a banquet fit for the gods laid out for them by mysterious hands. All is not as it seems, however, on the Isle of the lonely and powerful sorceress, Circe!

Can your wits make up for the foolhardiness of your captain and hero Odysseus, on the dangerous Isle of Circe?

Tuesday 28th September 

Knights Templar Lords of Outremer

Journey into the heyday of coexistence and cultural contact in the sacred city of Jerusalem and discover the truth about the most famous order of holy knights. Share their struggle to establish a place of respect and influence among the Crusader States of Outremer established after the First Crusade while also being forced to deal with a series of tragedies and triumphs that ended in the collapse of European power in the Holy Land.

On Christmas Eve the Knights Templar are left reeling by news of the fall of Edessa, first of the Crusader Kingdoms. As calls begin among the other knightly orders for another crusade, the Templars must work tirelessly and see with wise and unclouded eyes if they are to keep the hope of peace alive on the Eve of the Second Crusade.

The goal of your Templar Knight is more than to defeat your foes. Can you also maintain peace in the Holy Land? 

Wednesday 29th    

Elf Towers of Dawn The Choosing

Sites of mystic wonder, the Elf-Towers mark nodes of earth-power flowing through the Ancientmost Realm. 

Join a band of adventurers, the Peregrines, and answer the Summons of the Towers- to raise the sleeping power of the Towers, and to heal The Realm and prepare the Way for the Choosing of a High King and Queen to lead us against the Evil Empire that threatens the Realm’s destruction.

The Lancer Hero & his Warriors came across the Great River laden with treasure and set themselves up in the old abandoned Elf Tower as though it was their right. They didn’t spare a thought for fairy tales about an ancient guardian. Every day the Warlord commands his followers to dig drains to take rising water away. But every night the flood water comes back and the Warlord and his warriors awake drenched to the bone. As a last ditch effort the Warlord has hired a band of Adventurers called The Peregrines to try and sort out his problem…

Do you have the making of a true Peregrine? Come solve the mystery of the Nameless Tower.

Roman Britain Mission to the Britons

In its time the Roman Empire expanded to rule the ‘known world’ but as mighty as the legions of Rome were they still had their limits. Travel back to the days when the Romans had built Hadrian’s Wall from shore to shore across the north of Britain to separate their territory from the unconquered Pictish North.

Now accustomed to their duties along Hadrian’s Wall, the legionaries are sent into the unfamiliar territory of the North on a diplomatic mission. Assigned as bodyguards to a superior officer they must safeguard him on his journey to the Selgovae, a tribe of allied Britons, to collect the annual tribute. But on their arrival among the Selgovae they discover that a Pictish envoy has already been welcomed and seeks nothing but to stir up trouble for Rome.

Where in the Roman Empire will your character come from? If you’re a local recruit (a Briton) where will your true loyalties lay?

Friday 1st October

Vala Knight School Keys to the Mysteries

Like their Templar ancestors before them in medieval times, students in today’s world accept secret invitations to join an ancient College of Knighthood which remains hidden deep in the countryside of mysterious time-hallowed Wales.

The darkest hour has arrived for the students of Temple College. The halls are overrun by their enemies and they are bereft of the guiding hand of Sir Harold a.k.a ‘Harry the Jack’. Cut off even from entering Merlin’s Cavern, they must delve into deeper dungeons than they even knew existed in a desperate search for the Keys to the Mysteries, and a new hope for the fallen Templar Order.
