Charity Auction Lots

We’re having a charity auction!!! We’re still figuring out some of the logistics, but we’re going to be supporting the Grassmarket Community Project with the proceeds. We’ll be listing the lots here as they come in and updating this as we have more information. Please be aware that there may be a delay in getting physical lots to you and we cannot ship physical lots overseas at this time

If you would like to make a donation to the auction (especially virtual goods like game PDFs to which you own the copyright) please get in touch with us at scaledcon@scaledevents.co.uk

The Lots

A Knitted Blue Mouse (Physical Lot)

A Knitted Blue Mouse

The first lot donated to the Charity Auction is a Knitted Blue Mouse. This was hand-crafted by the mother of Convention Director, Tiggs and is as such bound to make you smile. Guaranteed not to turn into a Lovecraftian horror, unlike the next lot …

A Complete Digital The Yellow King RPG. (donated by Pelgrane Press – Virtual Lot)

  • the four YKRPG PDFs:
    • Belle Époque Paris, where a printed version of the dread play is first published. Players portray American art students in its absinthe-soaked world, navigating the Parisian demimonde and investigating mysteries involving gargoyles, vampires, and decadent alien royalty.
    • The Wars, an alternate reality in which the players take on the role of soldiers bogged down in the great European conflict of 1947. While trying to stay alive on an eerie, shifting battlefield, they investigate supernatural mysteries generated by the occult machinations of the Yellow King and his rebellious daughters.
    • Aftermath, set later in the same reality, in present day North America. A bloody insurrection has toppled a dictatorial regime loyal to Carcosa. Players become former partisans adjusting to ordinary life, trying to build a just society from the ashes of civil war. But not all of the monsters have been thoroughly banished—and like it or not, they’re the ones with the skills to hunt them and finish them off.
    • This is Normal Now. In the present day we know, albeit one subtly permeated by supernatural beings and maddening reality shifts, ordinary people band together, slowly realizing that they are the key to ending a menace spanning eras and realities.
