Kaleidoscopic Consequences, November 23–27, 2017, Naish Holiday Village, Christchurch, Dorset
It is 1930. Wall Street has just crashed, sea ice lingers in the Bering Straits, volcanos have exploded in Turkey and hurricanes devastate the United States. The mysterious 'red weed' has started to colour shores all around the globe. The Society for Investigative Researchers (SIR) has called for the world's best and brightest to attend a symposium to try and address these natural disasters, among other problems. But the world has not long recovered from one World War - attending too are the players of the Great Game, the murky world of espionage that countries have to play or die. Are rumours of another World War on the horizon fearmongering or dire prophecy? Can such conflict be prevented or will personal vendettas bring down empires? And what are the rumours of dinosaurs really all about?
Volcano's Edge is a game of politics and intrigue in the world of the classic pulp magazines. Explorers, scientists, spies and adventurers all vying to Save the World!

|Information for Players:||Character sheets are quite long - 10 sides of A4 are typical. Costuming appropriately is encouraged to add to the feel of the game. There are certain 1930s prejudices that are implicit in the character's world views but they are not dwelt upon. Violence in character's backgrounds does exist consistent with the pulp genre, but is not graphic.|

Played my first freeform 16 years ago and have been writing them ever since the Peaky writing weekend first began, which was... a while ago now. I like a nice solid traditional freeform but my fellow writers keep making me experiment against my will - they're tricksy like that :) I am neither fish nor fowl nor good red herring, but I do know that Vikings go with everything!
Frocktastic - that's all you need to know right now
