Time Bandits BK 

The Mystery of the Fabergé Eggs

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.

The House of Fabergé, a famous line of Russian artisans, crafted a set of fabulous clockwork eggs made from thin-beaten gold and precious gems for the Romanov Emperors. Many were captured during the Russian Revolution, but some went missing while en route to Moscow by train. The culprits? The Time Bandits!  Having stolen the Supreme Being’s Map of All Time and Space they now travel through history stealing its greatest treasures!

Will your character get their hands on more treasure than they can juggle as the Trans-Siberian rail heads full steam across the steppes towards Moscow?

Vikings in North America:  The Fatal Shore

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 Viking character face the challenges of a ‘new world’ and survive first landing on its Fatal Shore?

Elf Towers of Dawn  The Keepers Isle

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.

People of the Old Stone Age: Deep Winter

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. 

Huddled around their guttering camp-fire as they wait out the coldest months, the Tribe of the Cave Bear must deal with dwindling firewood, desperate predators, and the strange spirits of the midwinter and their own past as they dig deep to find the ingenuity and adaptability to endure Deep Winter. What special skills might your character develop to help your tribe survive and thrive at the start of the Ice Age?

Vala Knight School : Rise of the Students

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.

Crew of Odysseus:  Curse of Poseidon

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. 

Narrowly escaping from the Cave of the Cyclops, Odysseus and his crew put the rocky island of Sicily behind them and resume their journey home. But the sailing ahead is far from smooth as the Cyclops’ enraged divine father turns his wrath against Odysseus and all who sail with him, who must now face… the Curse of Poseidon!.

Can you survive the wrath of the Sea God that Odysseus’ foolhardiness has called down on all who sail with him?

Templar: Eve of the Second Crusade

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?

Elf Towers of Dawn: The Nameless Tower

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: Attack on The Wall

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.

The new recruits to the Roman Legion have barely had a chance to overcome internal difficulties and settle into life along Hadrianʼs Wall when a handful of survivors from an ambushed scouting patrol return from the wild unconquered North telling of an approaching horde of barbarian Picts. The newly-minted legionaries must deal with the conflicting demands of rival cults and legionary discipline while preparing themselves to face… an Attack on the Wall.

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

July, 9th Friday

School :The Battle for Temple College

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 cheering has finally stopped after the ousting of false Headmaster Sir John D’Eville and his brutal Enforcers from Temple College, when the latest arrival of students from the Redcliffe Express tell their tale of breaking through a swelling siege of the ancient castle grounds to get to the college.

The days of high dinners and student pranks are over! The true Battle for Temple College is about to begin!
