stretch goal: art book of various taker groups with their customized dronkeys - the deer one is obviously for hillbilly takers

SOLD!

Dronkey disguises!



This is super cool.  The legs hit that uncanny valley of expecting an animal but encountering a robot.

Suggestions!

-Give the deer dronkey six legs for added stability and spookyness!
-Upon the hillbilly suggestion, my first thought was "where is the beer holder".  Clearly any taker group worth their salt is going to jury rig a refrigeration unit to a dronkey for a cold one after a long day of zombie killing.
-Maybe the antlers can hold beer cans, or someone slapped a baseball cap/beer holder on their favorite dronkey.

I think we're watching taker society/traditions form.

Also, googling "dronkey" just pulls up images of a donkey/dragon hybrid... along with some diagrams of how that might happen.

I had a weird dream about playing Red Markets last night. We were supposed to be fighting animatronic crocodiles at a crappy amusement park, but instead we spent all our time arguing about how we could fake the success of our mission and rob our employer when he tried to pay us. Caleb was getting more and more irritated as we refused to complete the mission.

So there's some early playtest feedback if you want it, Caleb.

Is this the creepy part where Caleb looks at his notes about the animatronic crocodiles job being planned for the GenCon playtest and wonders if reality is truly just a dream?

Also, NPC set piece: warlord who keep a pit of animatronic animals "gone feral" in a pit that the tribe throws criminals into.

Farther consideration: At some point in the future it will become more cost efficient to use robots for interactable taskes. Which means at some point the cartoon characters we encounter in theme parks will be machines rather than actors or college students. Such a place would be really interesting to explore in Red Markets, especially if someone is maintaining the robots in the park because they control the flow of infected within the park, like they would have directed and controlled human traffic previously.

I'm in for the playtest (Friday afternoon is free, as is Sunday afternoon), and for the playtest rules. I can't promise my group will run a campaign, but we'll certainly do a few one-shots.

I have an idea for a Base Raiders character or group themed after modding animatronics with alien tech and deathbot parts but that's probably for another thread.

My group is open for anything and is too lazy to play anything other than what our two GMs put in front of them. They have the patience and obsession to spend years on a campaign. The lack the assertion to demand we present them with a game not of our choosing.
We volunteer for campaign testing. May Augustine have mercy.

I'd really like to playtest, but I don't have a group to play with. Do you think there'll be a pbp/skype group of Red Markets?
