Re: Marvel: Breakout

I've heard some interesting things about this system, consider me in!

Community-designed megadungeon

So I was looking at those nice big sheets of paper we used for the quote boards last GPNW, and I had an idea. Leave one out Friday before the start of the con, with stairs leading down into a little room drawn in the middle, marked "THE DOOMFOYER" or something, with several doors and passages leadin...

Re: Monster Moldvay D&D

I'm running online, for friends, a slightly silly premise played entirely with a straight face: "Make a character of any system, and we'll throw them into a dungeon generated by the 1st ed AD&D DMG." For "special" room results, I'm using the Fourthcore Alphabet's free web supplement "Iconic Dungeon ...

Re: SAT 02 SAT 03 Lady Blackbird

I just want to point out because I just remembered, but drunken Lady Blackbird was hilarious.

(For everyone else's benefit, that was at a pirates-only bar)

FRI 01 Dungeon World (The Pit Of The Red Mummy)

So there I was, in the pickup doughnut, totally prepared to facilitate a game of Apocalypse World, or maybe a couple of other things, and then I casually mentioned Dungeon World, which a surprising number of people expressed a surprising interest in. "Sure!" I thought to myself. "I'm plenty familiar...

Re: FRI-01 to SUN-02 Grudge Mansion

I, sadly, was unable to kill my target: I knew who it was, but had to get them into one of the non-Lopez rooms and didn't know them well enough to engineer a plausible excuse. If they had been scheduled for games on the board I would have tried bribing the organizer to run them in the kill-zone in q...

Re: SAT-04 In A Wicked Age: Who Rules Mizur?

-Every meeting between IPQU-ANNUNITUM and the tyrant (SHAR-KALI-SHARRI) ended with them both laughing like supervillians. -We only realized that near the end of the game. - The verbal contortions Noah went through as a demon in order to manipulate people. Both of you were fantastic demons. Sometime...

SAT 02 SAT 03 Lady Blackbird

Lady Blackbird I have long admired from afar, and I honestly can't imagine a better first run than this. We had a fantastic group whose names I, embarrassingly, can't recall, and managed to, in the span of five and a half hours (with a couple breaks) and one horse changed midrace when a player didn'...

Re: FRI-00: Dungeon World

PS: Dungeon World is a lot of fun, even when you're not getting to slay the party bard! The bonds are awesome relationship starters. Man, totally! In the game of Dungeon World Tony ran which I played in, I was playing a evil thief, and took the bond that she had stolen something from the fighter. T...

Re: SAT-04 In A Wicked Age: Who Rules Mizur?

I had a blast in this slot! I'd never played In A Wicked Age before, but I was a bit familiar with the rules and loved the Oracles, and secretly I always wanted to do a game where both those demons showed up in the same sitch. So when that exact thing happened, a not insignificant part of me went "Y...
