"There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable. There is another theory which states that this has already happened." (Douglas Adams)

The "House on the Hill" on the scenic New England coast is the ideal location for a short break or a long vacation.

Yes, the old hotel did burn down 80 years ago, shortly after opening, but we don't mention that to the guests. And those men in the corner: the ones in the suits with the shades and suspicious bulges under their jackets? Just guests, that's all. And the strange man with the French girl dressed like they've stepped out of a silent movie? More guests. As for the guy with the demented look in his eye, well, he's the owner.

So, who in their right mind would come to the House on the Hill? Well, you'll just have to play to find out. Two games in one, you can play in either 1928 or 2008. Described as a cross between Dr Who, HP Lovecraft and Reservoir Dogs: do you want to find out what's in the cellar and why the place keeps burning down?

Note: Due to the number of players who have expressed an interest in playing House on the Hill we are limiting sign-ups at the moment to those of have not previously played the game. Thank you for your understanding.

AJ is a GM-for-Hire, a Bid Committee Muggins and an occasional Plot Doctor. (He is still referring to himself in the 3rd person. Who knows why?).

Snowden, Mike

The Oracle is in: 5c per pronouncement (in advance, please).

Also known as "Herr Cocktailmeister". Strong men have quaked as they drown a second (or fourth) flagon of whatever Brew I have come upon that night. Women have turned tail and run.

PS - If you need a PA system in a hurry, come and see me.

Williams, Brian

Brian has written and run (usually with the able help AJ Smith) many successful 4-hour freeforms both here and in the US at Intercon. This includes the The Man In Black, Council of Fennas Drunin and Cardolani Succession. Various misguided individuals (Mikey, Sue and Steve) have volunteered to help him and AJ run The House on the Hill and Intrigue in the Clouds this time around.
