Tabletops

 

The table is optional but traditional. On this journey you will meet many tables (even if they're not needed).

Dice may or may not be involved. While some games at Phenomenon are system-based (i.e. a published system), others are "systemless" (which actually means home-brew systems or games that otherwise do not use dice for resolution).

There are also "multiforms", which encourage you to stand up and move around a bit.

All Night Long

By Greg Tannahill

A game about divinity, identity, and one crazy night out with friends

From the creator of The Day Before The Dragon, The Carol of the Bells and The King In Winter.


We all have the right to redefine ourselves.

For Gwynnane, Goddess of the Moon, that means ending a millennia-long marriage to the Sun God, taking back the Divine Spark that she had shared with him, and setting out for something new. She has summoned her four best friends from among the pantheon of gods, and will lead them on an extremely ill-advised pub crawl into the dirtier corners of the heavens. There will be drinks, laughter, and poor decisions.

But there is more beneath the surface than any of these gods will admit. Gwynnane's actions call into question the nature of the Divinity that each god possesses — and with it, their very identity.

Because Gwynnane's departure was an event that Althis, God of Knowledge, did not foresee.

Because Gwynnane's union was one that Cerwu, God of Marriage, did not dissolve.

Because Gwynnane's unhappiness was a wrong that Bralemborn, God of Justice, had not avenged.

And because Jennaby the Trickster, God of Luck, has a dark and wonderful premonition that change—true change—is finally coming to the gods...

But the future hangs in the balance. Because until Gwynnane's journey is complete, the sun cannot rise—and with each hour that passes the night grows longer, and darker...

... and Gwynnane's final destination is stranger than anyone can predict.


All Night Long is a cathartic system-lite tabletop game for five players. Players take on the roles of five gods, helping Gwynnane redefine herself in the aftermath of a breakup. The game is fundamentally serious and emotional. Gameplay is focused on characterisation and emotion, and is fully cooperative, with no betrayal/competition elements.

For the sake of clarity, the game focuses on the future, not Gwynnane's immediate past, and is NOT a game about abusive relationships or getting back together with exes.

Bard: The Crescendo — Stage Lights

By James Woodman

On the climactic final episode of a reality TV show talent contest, something truly magical happens as a contestant takes the stage and begins to sing their heart out.

Truly magical; and horrifying.

They accidentally touch the Source of all creativity, an eldritch being that hates humanity and despises being used for our petty human concerns such as “Art” or “Truth”. In the aftermath, a newly minted Bard has gone missing, armed with terrifying magic powers they cannot understand.

It is up to five artists desperate for inspiration, advancement and enough money to cover next month's rent to find them. Find them, and draw them into your philosophy — What use is a newbie if they won’t end up doing you a favour?

Bard is a fan-made Chronicles of Darkness game about Art and Artists. Art can be anything that uses creativity. If someone touches the Source of creativity by being one of the best in their chosen field, they are noticed by this sentient Source of power, and they see it back. They are forever altered by this connection, trading power for a thirst for Inspiration.

Forced to work with other Bards with wildly differing opinions, what will you do to save the new member of your society? And what will you tell the innocent to do?

The Empty Throne of God

By Joe McNamara

The Demiurge is gone, and all of Creation fights to take their place.

From the bleak corridors of the Pit of Suffering to the green chaos of Pangaea, humanity's wizards war amongst themselves. From the golden spires of the Eternal City to the lightless depths of the Abyss they come, driven by love or revenge or even stranger impulses, all seeking to take up the power the Demiurge set down.

Our cabal has forged its bonds in countless battles across countless worlds. Now, as the endgame approaches and the Demiurge's power leeches out of Creation, all that stands between us and the sunlit slopes of Mount Meru is an army of demons, a trio of terrible archmagi and the immutable fact that we've all been trying so hard to ignore:

Only one of us can sit on the Empty Throne of God.


THE EMPTY THRONE OF GOD — an experimental tabletop for 5 battle wizards about magic words, deep friendships and getting what you want. Very loosely inspired by Stuart Barrow's Three Short Games About Wizards.

The Feast of Saint Sathurn

By Andrew Smith

The mantelpiece clock ticks, cutting the seconds one by one out of Eternity. It is the only sound: Mother can not be disturbed. The five of you have gathered quietly in the parlour, in the gloom of early evening, as is the custom, as has always been the custom. Mother is ill. There must never be any music, nor laughter, nor other boisterousness. Mother could die from a shock!

But this evening is not the same as other evenings: tonight in the town through the woods is the Feast of Saint Sathurn. The harvest is home. The bone-fire is lit. The townsfolk will be feasting and celebrating in the square. There will be lamplight and song and the sweet music of violin and dulcimer, graceful dancing and fine gowns, and the warm gleam of friendly eyes. Revelry and romance. Troubling notions like Happiness, and Love, and ...Freedom.

Mother would not approve.

Your invitations sit in their envelope on the mantelpiece next to the clock. You would go — you desire to go — yet how could you leave Mother all alone? ...But also: how can you stand another night without joy? You furtively glance at each other when old Argus the butler looks away. You see the same desire in their eyes. The same guilt. ...And the same fear. For what if the feast is not for you? For what if all you are, all you ever could be, are duty-worn daughters and sons in an unending tale of despairful quiet, imprisoned in the family’s dismal ancient mansion?

...And what if Mother died because you were disobedient?

The shadows thicken towards dinner time, one eternal second at a time.

Tick.

Tick.

Tock.


A tale of doom and destiny for five gothic (nec)romantics. But Ssssh! Mother is sleeping!

Flotsam's Children

By Random Jones (with assistance from Maz Weaver and Loki Carbis)

Earth, 1980...

How long do you have to live to be called immortal?

One hundred years? Two hundred years? Four hundred years? More?

Or are you just long-lived until you can prove you can’t die?

And what about the person who has lived those four hundred years and has no idea why? How do you handle living a normal life once you notice you simply stopped getting older some time ago? When you see your friends get older and their children get older and you simply... don’t.

How do you handle immortality when you simply don’t know why?

And what do you do when you wake up screaming one morning from a nightmare you can’t remember to a world that no longer feels quite right?


Flotsam’s Children is a tabletop game for 5 immortals stuck on earth having no idea what is going on. It is set in the world of Roger Zelazny’s Chronicles of Amber, however no knowledge of those books is required to play.

Tonight, things are going to get very interesting. Some people don’t appreciate angels and demons fraternizing, and there is always the danger of Satan’s secret police getting involved.

The Great Ramli Burger Expedition

By Selphie

Ramli burger is the best! Tasty, meaty, yummy! Ramli burger is the best! We love Ramli!

Lunar New Year is one of the most important holidays in the Asian calendar. The biggest event of any this festival is, of course, the annual reunion dinner. During this time, people all over the world travel back to their home countries to reunite with their families.

This Lunar New Year, the five families that make up the Ye Clan* have gone on a united vacation to Malacca, the birthplace of the Peranakan race. The family has settled in a rather large traditional Malaccan villa, a veritable maze of a house with narrow doorways and enough bedrooms for its entire army of kin.

Unfortunately, the two oldest members of the Clan’s youngest generation, Cousins Lizzie and Carl, were unable to make it back for the reunion this year due to their overseas studies. Thus, responsibility for the Ye Clan’s substantial youngest generation has passed on to the next oldest in line, Cousin Marky Muller.

It’s the fourth day of the Lunar New Year and the adults have all gone out to attend various business luncheons, leaving the youngsters with the run of the villa and some money for food. Fortunately, everyone is in mutual agreement on what they should eat —

Ramli Burgers, the latest food craze to come out of Malacca.

All they have to do is go out and get them...

...assuming that they really are in mutual agreement... that is...


A 5–6 player tabletop about the true meaning of power and responsibility, and also extreme hanger.

Warning: This game may contain vomiting.

Legacy of Faded Memories

By Stephen Justice

Before others civilization there was the Nameless Empire, ruled by the Shan'iatu, Godlike Kings with vast powers. They created the Arisen, powerful creatures sworn to serve the Judges of the underworld. After their creation these Arisen slumbered only to awaken to a new world without the Nameless Empire they knew, their memories as full of holes as the world’s knowledge of their lost home.

The Arisen, also known as Mummies, leap through time, spending most of their existence in slumber served by their cults. They awaken at the behest of their Judge to accomplish great deeds and retrieve powerful artefacts before once more returning to slumber. With each awakening they regain more of themselves and their memories, but with each slumber it is once more lost to the sands of time. Their existence a struggle between their sworn duties and their own desires.

Each cult that serves an Arisen, is blessed and given powerful gifts. They worship these beings as Gods, and in return they find power and influence come easy. Sometimes such cults are small family linages with powers of sorcery, other times it can be vast business empires, or anything in-between.


This is a legacy story of an Arisen and the cults that built up around them throughout the ages.

Each session is an important moment of the Arisen's long existence as it struggles to remember who it was before it became an enslaved god. The decisions they make can shape the world, but when you cannot remember your decisions do they hold value.

Each session will have the four most influential cult members that are around for that awakening. The sessions will be their personal journeys and being caught up in the storm that is a fully awake Arisen.

Whether they're vying for more personal power, seeking freedom from ancient family oaths, or trying to convince a new loved one that worshiping an immortal mummy is the best thing for their families future, they will all contribute to the growing story.

Each session builds upon the last, with fragments of memories passed along to those that follow. Can the Arisen finally find the truth of their existence? What does it mean for all those who have ever followed it? What happened to the souls of the true believers?

LOVE LOVE LOVECRAFT!

By Jake Nelson

After countless aeons, at last the stars are right. From the cold eternities of space and the blackest depths of the ocean, they come once more: the Great Old Ones, the mad gods, the rightful rulers of the cosmos.

In every dark corner of this insignificant world, their lunatic followers mass, speaking blasphemous incantations and eldritch rituals in foul and forgotten tongues. Their goal — no less than to usher in their masters' reign, to revel in the destruction of the apes that crawl across the planet's surface.

Only a few stand against them. A small handful of brave souls determined to hold back the inevitable and help humanity survive another day.

And they are...

Akane! Chieko! Keiko! Rui! Yume!

New Guards

A Discworld Game set in the Ankh Morpork City Watch

By Talia Bruckard and Pixie Bea, with Mark Bruckard

“Right you ‘orrible lot. Ateeeen-shun!”

You’ve taken the oath. You’ve touched the King’s Shilling. You’ve been issued with your regulation helmet, weapon, armour, and official ‘Officer of the Watch’ (probably-mostly-metal) badge. It’s time to find your place on the rough, tough, and perpetually smelly streets of the sprawling City of Ankh Morpork.

If wading for evidence in the Ankh after practising Community Policing under Nobby was bad, today is looking to be a whole lot worse. Trouble is bound to find you soon enough, just remember not to run towards it alone. And on pain of being yelled at again; the new Commander is On His Honeymoon and is Not To Be Disturbed.

As the newest recruits — a Witch with an eye for Sorting Out Trouble (whether it wants sorting or not), an eloquent troll who’s a few degrees smarter than she looks, a disgraced thief in hiding (who would look for you here?), a Nac-Mac-Feegle looking to commit Community Service to ‘acquire’ a Good Reputation, and a sketchy dwarf finding her way in the world — the most undesirable case is falling to you. Can these green recruits unravel the tangled plots or will the city be sucked into an unstoppable plot hole?

Welcome to policing at the bottom of the pecking order.


A systemless tabletop for 4–5 of the newest recruits to the Ankh-Morpork City Watch.

Disclaimer: this game was written before the police brutality crisis exploded here and in the USA. Police brutality is not part of this game, and we support the Black Lives Matter movement. We will not be touching upon the subject of police brutality in-game and would be grateful if our players do the same.

Piano Man Of Dunwhich Street

By Mathew Sforcina

It's nine o'clock on a saturday, regular crowd shuffles in

Thro’ the ghoul-guarded gateways of slumber, past the wan-moon’d abysses of night,

There's an old man sittin' next to me, makin' love to his tonic and gin

I have liv’d o’er my lives without number, I have sounded all things with my sight;

He says: "Son can you play me a memory? I'm not really sure how it goes-"

And I struggle and shriek ere the daybreak, being driven to madness with fright.

"But it's sad and it's sweet and I knew it complete, when I wore a younger man's clothes."

I have whirl’d with the earth at the dawning, when the sky was a vaporous flame.

Christmas time, 1982

In New York, corner of Dubwich and 52nd Street, there's a little piano bar, with some regulars, and a pretty decent piano man, Bill Martin. Usually pretty quiet.

But this night, there's a minor variation, as a bunch of guys in weird robes busted in and kidnapped the manager and the entertainer.

Now, the regulars, the bar staff, and some woman named Christie Lee who no-one really knows, (don't ask me why), have to team up and take on this storm front before everything from The Great Wall of China to Allentown will be gone quicker than you can say 'Goodnight Saigon'.

The damage will probably stop in Nevada though.


A comedic Cosmic Horror game for 3-6 people using the Neverwhere System. Knowledge of Cosmic Horror is dangerous for your psychic health. Knowledge of Billy Joel songs is only slightly less dangerous, but useful to get the references.

Revengers, Resemble!

By Glen Cox

You play one of the Revengers, a group of suspiciously familiar superheroes, in three adventures set in modern-day New York City.

On Saturday, in VIPER at My Bosom, the Revengers are called in to help with a hostage situation when agents of the evil terrorist organisation VIPER take over a police station. Learn the basics of the game by beating down some vastly out-classed bad guys.

On Sunday, in Super Villain Unlimited Fighting Championship, the Revengers must rescue some missing heroes before they are forced to fight to the death in the SV-UFC. This scenario combines street-level hustle with fighting some super-strong villains.

On Monday, in Quake, Rattle, and Roll, someone is stealing cutting edge technology. The Revengers must unravel the clues and track the villain down before they can complete their doomsday weapon and destroy New York City!


No system knowledge required! Each scenario will help build system knowledge but there’s no requirement to play previous scenarios. The pre-gen characters have a choice of male or female character art. The scenarios focus on skill use and combat, but the second and third scenarios leave plenty of room for role play.
