I need to run a game based on this map

I'm pretty sure this is available from Hebanon games.

If Caleb hasn't written it yet then it'll be available soon

We just started a Savage Worlds Dead lands Weird west game. Our kind DM picked up a copy of the old Twisted Tales IC Journal and asked us if we would be so bold as have one of us write a journal entry at the end of each session having a different character voice their point of view each time. For the first session I was volunteered to write the first entry.

So here it is, hopefully it will speak for itself. As time goes on I'll put up the additional entries as they are written.

Journal entry #1

So this rube comes along with this “I’ll pay you $10 if you guard my turkeys on the way to the middle of nowhere”. I figure I need a bit of spendin money so I hop along for the ride.

What a bunch of misfits we had here - An above-board Brit broad packing her own metal tinkered horse sportin a horn… A horn! Why? “Science” she says as if it meant anything with a glazed faraway look in her eye. She was sitttin pretty on the coach along with her Injun Scout friend. I didn’t know much bout her but can’t say I asked neither.  I figured Little Miss Science was payin her as a guide or somesort. Thought she was going for the firewater but a tee totaller… though I saw everythin till then. There was this little Jewish feller too, looked a right snake oil salesman and no doubt, stingy too. Doc Holliday was on the coach too, beat him at hold’em for $5. Damn I’m good.

Now there’s Roy. He’s a mean sunovabitch. Before we left I saw him blow a kid away for spillin his whiskey. I won $1.50 off the Injun scout for that one too. Lightning fast for an old codger but I’m not getting on the wrong side of him, a real curly wolf and no mistake. Then there was this China girl, nuthin much to her at all but she started askin all these questions about me… I got to figurin that that Ol Steinberg is still sore I haven’t coughed up his money and sent for rubes to come collect so I’m layin low. “Just Jack” to anyone who asks is the best course for now.

The trip went well, barring Lil Miss Science gettin fixin up the wagon when it slipped a wheel. If someone told be she’d do that before we left I’d be thinkin they were full of blow but lo and behold there she was doin better than I could have thought. Hats off lady, you’re all right. We also had an old prospector with a nameless ass come along and share his bacon. Good stuff.

We arrived at the town with no turkeys and after gettin my hard earned dinero I went straight to the waterin hole where the bartender was bleatin on about people being dragged from their homes at night and hung on an old oak outside of town. Lil Miss Science was deep into this one firin questions like no one’s business. I guess this is when the posse got together

I don’t rightly know why we banded together but it just felt right at the time. We got to the tree with the scout diggin all about the tree, lookin for tracks I figure and I thought this is a good time to crack out one of my good hexes, the one that gives me the knowin of things. I saw that tree was bad, real bad and old and thirsty for blood. Knowin what little I knew about the other side I figured this was the problem. Like the ol docs say, “Find the rot and cut it out”. I didn’t know how to tell the others but I knew that this tree had to go.  Stupidly I figured, make it a bet… yeah they called my bluff and I folded like a cheap suit. I wouldn’t be stopped though; I went straight to the general store to get provisions for burning this evil thing down. Storekeep was shuttin up but I gave him my good grin and he let me in.

When I got back even the Brit was sayin I was crazy by this time. Soon they left leaving me and the Scout behind, poor girl… I feel bad for what happened to her. That tree lit up like a bonfire then all hell broke loose. I clambered out of the ground and lunged at us. I don’t remember much, just running… so much running.

We made it back to town where it looked like the others were havin a fuss of their own. The scout went down, bein choked by the tree. It weren’t her fault bein there with me, didn’t deserve that. I got angry and threw out my all in a big ol hex. Ol scratch musta been playing bad cos I’ve never hexed that powerful before. There was nothin left of that tree just sawdust and ash. It was stupid, throwin that much out in one go right in the middle of town. The posse saw it and even some of the townies. Lil Miss Science gave me an out though, shoutin about fosfers or something. The Jewish flimflam man musta smelt an opportunity cos he came clamberin out of his hole to sell his “Medicinal whiskey” to calm the nerves of the townsfolk. I helped him do it cos it helped my case. Stingy snake didn’t even give me a fair cut either… last time I do that for certain.

The townsfolk wanted to know what happened and knowin I couldn’t just tell them that a demon tree was killin people and raisin the dead I spun a tale about bandits and complicated schemes. It works every time. When I get my big win I could be a snake oil salesman too.

And that’s all I gonna say about that.

Diamond Jack, Huckster

For the three of us who aren't at Gen Con, I heard about a restaurant near the Con who redesigned their menus for the crowd.

Definitely fuel for a sci-fi/horror game.

That's a cannonball suspended in a bathtub of mercury,

Ahh... now I feel stupid.

Remember, being a juggalo means never having to feel stupid about science. Also you get to wear face paint and drink Faygo. So wins all around it seems.

Oh god I'm a Juggalo now too?!

I'm afraid I'm not smart enough to understand what's going on here.

RPGs / Quick MAOCT Question
« on: August 14, 2013, 04:01:08 AM »
Hey guys,
Thought I'd just drop a quandry your way.
I'm getting ready to run Road Trip and one of my players is basing his monster on an anime character, namely Nel from the series Bleach. While making the monster he informed me that her drool can heal. So this leads me to ask, Are there any mechanics for accellerated healing during monster battles (e.g. Healing spells from Dnd) as a monster's useful ability in MAOCT?
Initially I think not but I wanted to put this past you guys first before making a hard ruling.

The first? I was way off. Damn fine game though. I bought Fear Itself and the book of unremitting horror after listening to that.

Game Challenge:  build a horror game built around number stations

Didn't Ross already do that?

Yup, It was a Fear Itself game with Tom and Cody. I'll admit it wasn't "around" number stations as such but they did feature in there. I think it was mentioned in Episode 50(?) in 2010. I'm not sure where to find the AP but it was pretty damned good.

Chris Hussey of the Fear The Boot podcast has just put out a Kickstarter for his new web series "Table Tales".

Basically its gaming stories made into live action shorts. Think "Gamers" but in 6 episodes.

I personally would like this to succeed, simply because he put on a suit and looked dapper.
