You have volunteered to re-experience the original Consilience experiments through the use of a hazardous and discredited technology to discover more about how this breakthrough came to be and the people who took part.

Grandma's Resting Place

It’s been three years since Grandma Dot’s cancer diagnosis, and the last two annual family beach parties have been centered on her long—and happy—goodbyes. Now she’s passed away in a hospital far from home. Rather than turn her body over to the usual pipeline of hospital to funeral home to cemetery, the family took it and drove off in their RV to take her home and decide what to do.

Possible pickup games

These games aren't likely to end up on the schedule, since they are very small. But if there's sufficient interest--i.e., enough players when the GM is willing to run--these may happen.
Drink Me: 1 hour, 3 players
Three mysterious travelers, all hailing from Victorian London, meet, perhaps not coincidentally, in the depths of the long-thought-lost Cave of Wonders. Within the cave, they have found six elixirs: drinking any one could bring madness, death or power. But all three travelers have reasons for drinking -- and all have decided it's worth risking their lives on a swallow. A game of Victorian horror.
