Dr. Nefarious and the Paradise Project

“Welcome to the Paradise Island resort! A deluxe hotel resort set on an exotic Caribbean island, with discreet and capable staff ready to attend to your every need. Don’t miss visiting the Paradise Casino, the world’s premier destination for the rich and beautiful with time on their hands.”

Deep beneath Paradise Island lies the secret lair of the infamous villain, Dr. Nefarious. From this underground base he gives the orders that make Presidents tremble. Here he commands the terrible superweapons that will bring the free world to its knees. Here his forces train to tread the nations of the Earth beneath their polished black boots.

Well... he will when it’s finished. The lair got relocated to Paradise Island after the Swiss mountain chalet had that accident. And the tunnels aren’t all finished yet, because that one CIA agent slipped in through the casino and blew up the M.O.L.E. Machine. And some of the superweapons aren't actually built yet.

Still, the revised plans are more or less on schedule.

Dr. Nefarious is currently enjoying his regular anniversary holiday.

And the satellite death ray had better be ready when he gets back.

Dr. Nefarious is a horde game written at Peaky 2013.

Unlike most horde games, there is no firm distinction between cast and horde. Ambitious minions can be promoted to officers of the organisation, and the coveted position of Dr. Nefarious's right-hand-lieutenant is up for grabs. Of course, it's also possible for minions who fail to be... demoted.

Curd, Nick

After last year I'm running more games, playing in less (for sanity sake) and have been bribed with free [s]fruit[/s] chocolate to spend time on the Ops desk first thing in the morning. Looking forward to seeing many people I don't get to see anywhere near as often as I'd like to.

I'm the one with beard, glasses and an armful of props, and hopefully a pint. OK, that's half of the con. Replace "prop" with "PA", and I'm more easily identifiable.

I'm an experienced writer and player; Previous games include "Come Hel or Hiawatha", "Small Town Folks", "Veterans Day" and "Carry on at Camp David". "Dr. Nefarious and the Paradise Project" is my last offspring from the Peaky writing weekend.
