Here are the scenarios for Fastaval 2018. This year will have plenty of sci-fi, different takes on fantasy and magical realism, character dramas of love, war and conflict and several scenarios handling illness in very different ways. And we have no less than two scenarios that will run outdoors.

Joan the Vampire Slayer by Kristoffer Rudkjær and Mads Brynnum
Joan The Vampire Slayer is a game about 17 years old Joan.

The players take the roles of Joan and her friends, and together they are up against the main villain of the season. But it’s one thing to fight evil, and something else entirely to navigate through life as a teenager with all the drama it entails. The game is obviously an homage to the tv-series Buffy The Vampire Slayer, and like the original the story spans an entire season.
