RPPR Episode 89: Scenari-NO

AUTODUEL!?!?! >:ONews: Base Raiders is in layout! Hooray! Raillery is on hiatus until Base Raiders is complete. Boo!

Synopsis: Tom and I once again dive into the “Pile of Broken Dreams“to look at two old modules, Zombietown USA for GURPS and All Fall Down for Cyberpunk. Adventure design was quite different back then. For example, a brutal dungeon crawl was apparently required for every scenario, regardless of genre. Railroading was very popular as well. Regardless, there are useful elements from each scenario. Also, Tom does not care for the needless inclusion of Autoduel stats for a horror scenario. Oh and Tom has a letter too. Plus, shout outs and anecdotes!

  • Channel A: A truly fun game for anime fans AND haters. Listen to our special Actual Play!
  • Fate Core: The new edition of the Fate RPG system and it comes in a handsome book.
  • Boss Monster: A new 8-bit video game inspired card game. Kill the heroes before the other monsters do.

Actual Play: GURPS Modern League of Extraordinary Gentlemen Episode 1

In a world..Our world…Everything is true. Every story you’ve read, every movie you’ve seen, every game you’ve played actually happened. At least those that take place in the here and now. This is the first session of a GURPS 4th edition campaign premised on taking the Alan Moore comic The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen and making the concept contemporary. Anything that takes place in the ‘here and now’ is true. James Bond, Half-Life, Ghostbusters, Hannibal Lector, the X-Files, annoying sitcoms and Freddy Krueger all co-exist in the same world. In this first adventure, the PCs must break into the HQ of Ghostbusters Inc. to retrieve the data of Project Miskatonic before it is too late…

Players:
Jason – Dean Winchester from the TV Show Supernatural
Tom – Basically a pre-med student version of the Lizard
Bob – A Highlander French aristocrat
Drew – Kabuki the ninja assassin babe
RJ – Firestarter age 25
Aaron – An employee of Ghostbusters Inc.
