* Con Director and Designer - [[Gaelcon 2010]]
Created at [[Gaelcon 2008]], this has been co-developed with [[Sean Geraghty]]. This setting is in the early 1940s of an alternative history where Soviet Russia deployed supers, or "Icons" against Nazi Germany, devestating the Third Reich's command overnight. Currently, the Soviets have control over all supers bar one, a rogue "God" called "Perun the Hunter", who protects Poland. The setting is distinctly Dieselpunk, with mechs, giant tanks, and invisible men.

A strong focus on development has been integrating real world figures into this new History. As of 1941, Joe Kennedy (father of JFK) is President of the US after FDR was assassinated by the Soviets.

Featuring the fictional Garda Unit for the Bizarre and Unprecedented, the game can be best described as Flann O'Brien's World of Darkness. This organisation was said to be founded by Michael Collins in 1921 at a meeting with several noteable historical figures, some of whom have bizarre supernatural qualities, such as WB Yeats being the most powerful wizard on Earth, Tom Crean visiting the The Mountains Of Madness, and Alastair Crowley being obsessed with the comedy value of crocodiles.

GUBU

Featuring the fictional 'Garda Unit for the Bizarre and Unprecedented', the game can be best described as Flann O'Brien's World of Darkness. This organisation was said to be founded by Michael Collins in 1921 at a meeting with several notable historical figures, some of whom have bizarre supernatural qualities, such as WB Yeats being the most powerful wizard on Earth, Tom Crean visiting the The Mountains Of Madness, and Aleister Crowley being obsessed with the comedy value of crocodiles.

Recurring characters in GUBU include Detective Lorcan Fallon (great grandson of Dick "Bang-Bang!" Mulcahy), "The Bull" O'Cooley (a bull who turns into man form), and at least one priest per mission. Opponents have included included "The Minister For No Fun", the town of Gort, Unprecedented Boats off the Clare Coast, MI5's anti paranormal group the Z-List, the Bureau L'Estrange, the SkangerDragon of Finglas, and The Boss Charles J Haughey.

GUBU also makes a brief, if inaccurate, cameo in Gar Ryder-Hanrahan's Laundry RPG core book.

As best as can be recalled, the GUBU saga so far consists of:


  • "GUBU: Gortbusters" (LARPG...kind of hard to tell) Itzacon IV 2008
  • "GUBU: The Ultimate Showband of Ultimate Destiny", (LARP) Gaelcon 2008
  • "GUBU: F**k Your Doomsday Weapon, I've a Horse Outside" (RPG) Leprecon XXXII 2011
