[Game Chef] The Eleventh Hour

A number of readers wrote in about Game Chef, and both of them asked, "Hey, when does the next Game Chef start?"

The answer: Last week!

Next question: When's the submission deadline?

Answer: About 90 minutes ago!

Yeah, sorry I didn't mention anything about it until now. Honestly, I've just been busy with stuff, including my own Game Chef entry, and ended up not getting around to posting about it in time. So... I hope you found out about it on your own and submitted something, because I was useless in that regard.

Anyway, the theme was "Last Chance," in honor of the imminent demise of The Forge. I'm sure it'll produce a lot of lighthearted, fun little games. Like my game.

This is a game about four cultists working in the shadows to bring about the end of the world. The Grand Convergence – an alignment of heavenly bodies that only occurs once a millennium – approaches, and with it a rare opportunity to call forth an otherworldly entity of unimaginable power into the Earthly plane. Extradimensional portals don't just open themselves, though. It's going to take a lot of effort on the cultists' part to drown the world in blood and darkness. 
However, all is not what it seems. At the eleventh hour, one of the cultists is revealed to be an investigator in disguise, working from within to foil the cult's plans. But will it be enough to save the world? Or will the cultists make good on this last chance to summon their dark god?
The rules are here. The character sheets are here. The cult sheet is here.

Happy end-of-the-world!
