Also, if you're attending, do you plan to run any AS&SH? Don't forget - Ghul's got special Russ Nicholson class VII daemon shirts for anyone running a Hyperborea game. They're badass.

Descriptions
The Beasts of Kraggoth Manor (ghul, Sat 8PM-12AM). Travelling to the hills north of Khromarium, seeking sanctuary beyond the Lug Wasteland, the party hears word of a place for respite, a small estate known as Kraggoth Manor which had recently been used as a settlement for a band of pictish adventurers. Yet when they arrive at the shattered walls outside the boarded-up house, the PCs find Kraggoth Manor under siege by a tribe of vicious mountain apes. To gain access to the house, and finally feel the warm comfort of a hearth, the party will have to assist the trapped picts against the mountain apes and their unholy shaman leader. Unfortunately for the PCs, the secrets inside Kraggoth Manor may prove far more dangerous than the beasts outside.

The Black Moss-Hag of Lug (ghul, Fri 8PM-12AM). Out on the farms east of the Town of Swampgate, Little People have been observed stealing across the moonlit fields. Until recently, they were considered nothing more than a nuisance; they neither stole nor vandalized. Of late, however, they have grown more audacious: trampling crops, stealing livestock, breaking fences, and causing other inconveniences. The farms stepped up nocturnal patrols and brought in guard dogs, but the dogs vanished, and the patrols came up emptyhanded.

A week ago, disaster struck: In the dead of night, two young sweethearts snuck out from their respective farms to rendezvous at a nearby toolshed used by local peat cutters. They never returned. Signs of a struggle were discovered at the site, as well as dozens of small, misshapen footprints. The outland farms have requested the aid of Swampgate’s rangers, but the wilderness warriors are occupied, reconnoitering barbarian activity in the north. Now, the town seeks brave and exceptional adventurers to help solve the woes of the eastern farms.

By this Axe I.... Drool? (Eric Petersen, Sat 12PM-6PM). What cursed God allowed this thing to be created a Viking will never know......but obviously they never reckoned with Viking stubbornness. Dragging this implement of Destruction around has been a chore, but perhaps this time there are spoils to be had worthy of a Viking Warrior....

Crash at Corpse Creek (chainsaw, Fri 8PM-12AM, Sat 2PM-6PM). A strange object has fallen from the stars, crashing into the cold, haunted swamp of Corpse Creek. Several curious trappers from a nearby camp went to investigate, but none have returned. The remainder have hired your group to find their friends, but they warn you that Corpse Creek teems with the living dead and that its strange bugs have awakened early from their winter freeze, including some giant varieties never seen before in Hyperborea. A site-based adventure for up to six player characters of levels 3-5.

Descent into Krimmea (Ar'Pharazon, Thur 6PM-10PM, Sat 12PM-4PM). Krimmea: The lost underground Kimmerian city that sealed itself from the outside world a thousand years ago when the Green Death ravaged the lands.Recently, Krimmeans have emerged from their city, bringing rare metals, fungi and other goods that are prized in the markets of Khromarium.Your party has been commissioned by a wealthy merchant along with Khromarium's most prominent sage, to explore Krimmea, bringing back information, maps and if possible, goods.

Escape from Kor (Ar'Pharazon, Sat 10AM-2PM, Sun 8AM-12PM). Your group of Vikings raided deep into the heart of the City State of Kor, seeking ancient Hyperborean treasures long abandoned from the time of the Ashen Worm. Things were going according to plan until the apes discovered your presence and the alarm was sounded. The city has come alive with the sounds of countless angry apes descending on your location. Can you escape or will you fall victim to the hordes of apes coming after you?

Foolsgrave (chainsaw, Fri 2PM-6PM, Sat 8AM-12PM). Khromarium's mysterious spiraling towers of black gneiss predate mankind, an ever-present reminder of how strange and alien things once ruled Hyperborea. During the Festival of Plutonia, a sombre commemoration of death, darkness and the all-consuming void, one such tower's impenetrable doors slowly creaked open, admitting anyone brave enough to descend into its depths. Many have entered, but few have returned - some with wealth overflowing, others simply mad, drooling and babbling. Locals now refer to the labyrinth as Foolsgrave. A megadungeon crawl for up to eight player characters of levels 1-3.

Gutter Waifs and Sewer Rats .... (Eric Petersen, Fri 2PM-6PM). It's a rough life in the City streets......but if you have friends.....and nimble fingers......How bad could it get?

Secrets of the Horned Helm.....part 1 (Eric Petersen, Fri 8AM-12PM). Our intrepid band of Vikings have born this cursed thing with them for leagues on their quest to find their way home..... What is it....and how does it seem to constantly drive their fate to the furthest reaches of Hyperborea......

Shooting Star Watcher (stahlnee, Fri/Sat 8AM-12PM). Passed down through generations is the story of a group of individuals foretold as rediscovering the fabled Royal Library containing the complete knowledge and wisdom of ancient Hyperborean’s. This story is the basis for a variety of rumors and legends told by parents to their offspring to impart their tribal morals and ethics. Consequently, this cycle has repeated itself over the past millennia. As discovered during a teaching exercise where your teacher whispers a phrase into one child’s ear and then the child does same to the next. This process continues between each child in the entire class. When the last child speaks aloud the phrase, the phrase spoken is drastically different than what the teacher originally whispered.

Recently your group has had a consultation with the witch Laveau. During the consultation, the witch Laveau channeled an ancient Hyperborean whom was discussing with their teacher the futile nature of spending years making written records. The teacher explains to the student that after a civilization is extinct, the only thing that exists proving your existence is the written record.

The Strange Tale of Crystal Point (chainsaw, Sat 8PM-12AM). In the far reaches of Hyperborea's Crab Archipelago, lies a small, mountainous island known as Crystal Point. Passing sailors have recently seen a crimson glow in Crystal Point's waters, beams of reddish-brown light shining up from its steep cliffs and frequent lightning storms overhead. One famous sage believes Crystal Point may hold the ruins of a lost Atlantean colony - and its secrets! Eager for adventure and treasure, you agreed to explore the island and, after a long journey, have finally set foot on its rocky beach. A site-based adventure for up to six player characters of levels 7-9.

The Table in the Woods (Eric Petersen, Sun 10AM-2PM). Deep in the woods, in a clearing in the trees, a table set with a fare fit for a King......

This raggedy band..... (Eric Petersen, Fri 6PM-10PM). Tired.....battle worn and weary, you and your band of mercenary companions have been sent to retrieve the personal property of the Sultan Amir Mustafa Hap Hazzrad......a simple brass casket....how hard could it be...

What is this, song in the night? It keeps the stars Alight. (Eric Petersen, Sat 6PM-10PM) As of late, things have been still. Too Still, the streets. Quiet, except for a faint tune. Not a rat, a begger, or a gutter snipe dare stray but something moves there in the mists in the back alley......

Re: Gamehole V (2017)

I hope I can succeed on my save vs registration. Garycon was a disaster...I registered, added games and then skipped the checkout button, thus losing all of my selections. 

I hope to get in on another foolsgrave, maybe survive by running again   

Also, Corpse Creek sounds fun.

I gave the PC sheet back to you at the end of our Sat session at Gary Con. I hope you still have it?

Did you have the Viking Berserker with a great axe? Made level 2?

Re: Gamehole V (2017)

I'm on the fence, but I'd love to go and run some AS&SH. I'm not sure what game I'd submit, maybe something I come up with myself. Are there any published modules that haven't had a lot of showings at cons?

Edit- wow, I didn't realize this was my first post!

That would be awesome man! Plus, you'd get a special Class VII daemon shirt. 

Ghul would probably know best what's not been run in a while, maybe TAKEN from Dunwich or Charnel Crypt of the Sightless Serpent?
