A group of misfits are trying to save the world… and prom. Can you and your “Scooby gang” stop whatever is terrorizing your high school? More importantly, will The Chosen One be crowned prom royalty?
Come play this high-larious and high stakes Monster of the Week one-shot to find out!
About the GM: Nikki Silveira (she/her) is a teacher, trekkie, LGBTQIA+ activist, pop culture geek, and karaoke connoisseur. Although she’s been a life-long lover of fantasy RPGs via computer and gaming consoles, she didn’t get into tabletop RPGs until about five years ago. Once a student’s parent (and fellow geeky teacher) asked what it’s like game mastering; to which Nikki replied “A lot like teaching third graders, really.” It’s about being prepared, flexibility, knowing when to enforce the rules and when they can slide, ability to foresee what might happen next (to roll with it when you cannot), knowing all of the things, and funny voices.
About the System: Monster of the Week is a d6-based, standalone action-horror RPG for 3-5 people. Hunt high school beasties, travel the country like the Winchester brothers to bring down unnatural creatures, or head up the government investigation like Mulder and Scully.
