Who Are We?

"We are the only group that went from Pointless to Cruelty without being Mental in-between."

-- Adapted from Oscar Wilde --

Pointless Mental Cruelty is the name used by a group of writers who work together. We write and run Freeforms, Role-Playing Games and Events at conventions across Australia. We try to help create Games and occasionally host Events as well. Along the way, between the debates, the food and Roleplaying, we have fun and try to entertain anyone who's willing to participate in the Games we run.













Currently there are 6 writers who are associated with PMC.  We've listed our mugshots above if you need to know what we look like, and bio's are available here(we're not sure why you'd want to read them at all really!).

"Recovery" to be Submitted for Arcanacon XXVIII 2010

The Pointless Mental Cruelty crew are currently in the process of writing a Call of Cthulhu Game for Arcanacon XXVIII 2010. The setting is an asylum, and all we can tell you at this time is that a number of odd 'props' will be involved! A blurb will be available on the web site in early September 2008. Stay tuned for more details...
