First of all, I want to thank everyone who came out for both or 7th Sea and Halloween events! Judging by the enthusiasm, mayhem, and volume, both were rousing successes. I also want to thank everyone who has been part of this program since the beginning. We wouldn’t be where we are without all of you.
The reason I feel I need to do this is because…
It’s Our Anniversary
Believe it or not, this year marks our tenth anniversary of the Lewisville Library Teen Roleplay Program. For 10 straight years, we’ve been firing up the imaginations of young men and women with a variety of magical, horrifying, and inspiring worlds of wonder.
Next year, we are going to do something we’ve never done before. We are going to go back into our back catalog and revisit a game world. Its a world with plenty of potential for heroic action, swashbuckling derring do, dramatic tragedy, and soul stirring horror. Just the kind of stuff we love around here. What is it, you ask? Mark your calendars! Sharpen your swords!
The year is 1636 and France is a troubled nation.
A great and terrible evil gnaws at its core.
Darkness stalks the land.
All that stands between chaos and order…
…are the King’s Musketeers.
This is the world of All For One: Régime Diabolique, a world of epic swashbuckling adventure and white knuckle horror. You are members of King Louis XIII’s elite guard, the Musketeers. In addition to the wild intrigues of the royal court and the machinations of the scheming Cardinal Richelieu, your duty is to protect the throne from dread horrors only whispered about. Werewolves, vampires, witches, and other fiends stalk the land, preying on the weak, the innocent, and the naive.
Everyone says there is no such thing as monsters. You know better, monsieur!
Explore a France of swashbuckling action, powerful magic, daring deeds, courtly intrigue, witty repartee, and vile monsters! The characters are France’s bravest and proudest defenders, the King’s Musketeers. Pitted against them is a plethora of corrupt nobles, black magicians, fell demons, and twisted secret societies.
Set at the height of power of Cardinal Richelieu and Louis XIII, All for One: Régime Diabolique mixes the action of literary works such as The Count of Monte Cristo and The Three Musketeers with horror and intrigue to create a unique, vibrant setting.
Strap on your sword, salute the King, and prepare to cross swords with the creatures of darkness!
All for One: Regime Diabolique is a fantastic game by our friends at Triple Ace Games. We last visited the Kingdom of France back in 2011. This was actually the basis for the sample scenario we hosted at TLA in 2012. Now we’re going back. This time, we will be using the world’s intended game system: Ubiquity from Exile Game Studios. This is the same system that powers such fantastic worlds as:
- Hollow Earth Expedition (Exile Game Studios): Fighting Dinosaurs and Nazis in a race to the center of the Earth!
- Leagues of Adventure (Triple Ace Games): Exploration and Steampunk science in the Age of Queen Victoria.
- Desolation (Greymalkin Designs): Post Apocalyptic Fantasy
Get ready for a new world to explore in the new year!
The adventure begins on Monday, January 16.
