As the three moons cast ominous conflicting shadows across the land, the strange figure all in red raised skeletal hands heavenward in silent supplication.
The cliffs shook and rent themselves heaving and twisting in time to the cacophony in the skies above. Writhing as if alive, the black stone began to glow an eerie penumbrial violet and to slowly flow like thick black blood.
Minutes or eternities passed, as time and space twisted to accommodate this new birthing, this new spawn of blackest magik.
And thus was born a tower.
For eons evil gathered and receded from the grim black hell-tooth of what was now recognizably a haven of sorts, for all that was foul and evil. Yet with each cycle of the ages some of the evil lingered, building upon itself to become, eventually, a presence, a reality, of its own; a second birth. And with it, came a name: Caliban.
And Caliban ever was, a lasting thing that outlived even the dynasties of the immortal Elves.
No longer joyous as in their early days of their youth, the Elves, grimly determined to destroy their nemesis once and forever. Withdrawing to their heartlands central stronghold, they ignored the nightmare that gleefully engulfed their once bright lands, for they were forging the mightiest rune the world had ever seen.
Every single living inhabitant of the Elven kingdom Khaer-Mideon formed the essence, the driving force of the mighty rune. The Elves were laying their very existence on the line, in supreme effort to destroy Caliban.
As the climactic moment arrived and the rune of doom was envoked, Caliban, not unaware of its enemies plans, cast a counter rune. A rune powered by the eons of souls it had possessed and eaten.
The forces unleashed by those opposing runes were so awesome that the very planet lurched, stumbling in its orbit about the sun and the rotation of the world slowed, permanently, by one hour. Time and space reeled and buckled, the astral plane was aflame, and every single Elf ceased to exist.
Caliban was bathed in agony, awash in the power of the self-annihilating runes, and in fear for the first time in its long existence. Caliban retreated into time in a desperate attempt to save itself, but only partially succeeded.
Now, adrift in time and ghosting through distance, Caliban is like the Flying Dutchman of dungeons. Seldom seen, even less visited, Caliban now wanders aimlessly, awaiting only the gods know what.
Caliban is here. Dare you enter?

Written by David Hargrave as the first of published dungeons based on Hargrave's Arduin Trilogy and deliberately constructed as a very dangerous and high level adventure. This version is adapted to run with the 5th edition rules of the World's Most Popular Role Playing Game.

Players: 8
LARP Experience: Beginners Welcome
Game Content: Family
Genre: Star Trek DS9
Costume Suggestions: Any DS9-era Trek

You finally took Quark up on his 2-for-1 holosuite deal. It seemed like such a great way to blow off a little steam with some friends. Unfortunately, you seem to have triggered an old Cardassian boobytrap, sealing the room and shutting down most of the systems. Engineering is locked out, transporters aren't functioning, and there's an ominous countdown proceeding toward zero. You need to somehow make sense of the station's systems and puzzle your way out of this before something bad happens.

Notes:
1. This is a game event that requires you to use your keen mind and powers of deduction to succeed. While knowledge of Trek may be entertaining, it is not necessary.
2. Gather items, find codes, and solve puzzles to restore system functions and escape.
3. Strategy and cooperation with your team members is essential? more heads are definitely better than one.
4. Failure to escape the holosuite is nothing to be embarrassed about. After all, you are matching wits with the Cardassians, widely known for their devious plots and ingenious traps.
5. Do not worry if you are still in the holosuite when time expires. Odo has told Quark he's not allowed to charge you extra.
6. Dressing like your Trek character may help to sharpen your mind. Wear comfortable clothes but refrain from wearing heels or anything else that might slow you down.
7. If you want training before the actual game, google 'Escape Game'. There are many Escape games on the internet you can try. (You know, those low-tech holo-simulations)
8. Please do not spoil the fun for other participants at Con by telling them the answers to the puzzles.
9. You escape attempt will be timed. Can you get the fastest time at Con?

The only known threat strong enough against the empire's power and plans is the legendary 'Defender of the Universe' Voltron, a 100-meter tall robot warrior composed of five lion mechas whose pilots are known as the Paladins. At the crux of the war that ended with the destruction of planet Altea, Voltron was separated by King Alfor of Altea in order to protect Voltron from falling into the Galran Emperor Zarkon's possession. King Alfor bonded the five lion's energies to his daughter Allura's life force and sent them across the universe to different locations until the time for the next generation of Paladins to appear and pilot Voltron arrived. Princess Allura, her royal advisor Coran, and the Altean Castle of Lions were hidden on planet Arus along with the Black Lion.

So, the zombie apocalypse happened. It sucked, that's for sure. But it was decades ago; civilization survived and rebuilt and things are back to normal. It's just that 'normal' now includes zombies and ghosts and horrible necromantic abominations and whatnot.

Oh and the Morticians. That's you: a loser with the most dead-end job there is. You keep the undead from getting into the city. It pays peanuts and you'll probably die, but at least they're always hiring!

There's been reports of a whole swarm of zombies moving with dire purpose toward the city, which suggests that somewhere behind it there's a necromancer with malevolent intent, and it's up to you to stop them.

They've got access to the arcane energies of life and death itself, along with a literal army of flesh-eating ghouls. You've got, like, a baseball bat and some gumption. Good luck!

You finally took Quark up on his 2-for-1 holosuite deal. It seemed like such a great way to blow off a little steam with some friends. Unfortunately, you seem to have triggered an old Cardassian boobytrap, sealing the room and shutting down most of the systems. Engineering is locked out, transporters aren't functioning, and there's an ominous countdown proceeding toward zero. You need to somehow make sense of the station's systems and puzzle your way out of this before something bad happens.

Notes:
1. This is a game event that requires you to use your keen mind and powers of deduction to succeed. While knowledge of Trek may be entertaining, it is not necessary.
2. Gather items, find codes, and solve puzzles to restore system functions and escape.
3. Strategy and cooperation with your team members is essential– more heads are definitely better than one.
4. Failure to escape the holosuite is nothing to be embarrassed about. After all, you are matching wits with the Cardassians, widely known for their devious plots and ingenious traps.
5. Do not worry if you are still in the holosuite when time expires. Odo has told Quark he's not allowed to charge you extra.
6. Dressing like your Trek character may help to sharpen your mind. Wear comfortable clothes but refrain from wearing heels or anything else that might slow you down.
7. If you want training before the actual game, google 'Escape Game'. There are many Escape games on the internet you can try. (You know, those low-tech holo-simulations)
8. Please do not spoil the fun for other participants at Con by telling them the answers to the puzzles.
9. You escape attempt will be timed. Can you get the fastest time at Con?
