Mall Ninja/Night Shift
« on: December 02, 2009, 11:53:54 PM »
Alright, So I still cannot believe how awesome this episode was.
I wish I could have been in any of the games. It just blew my mind.

However, It had inspired me to create my own MALL NINJA CoC game, at least a several session long descent into Carcosia.
The Mall Ninja thread itself is pretty Fucking Insane, and I know guys like that- bullshitters and musketeers.

Any suggestions after running it so much Ross? I mean, I don't want to steal, but i want to take, so like,
How did the flashbacks work mechanically? Is there a resource I might check out?
I wish I was Tom.

Granted, you are now Tom.

You need to make the night mall wave public. I tried to link it on the Delta Green wave but someone told me they couldn't get in.

Well, the main trick is that you have to walk a fine line between absurd and horrific. The initial setup is quite odd so some players will think it's a comedy game. On the other hand, you can't just go full blown crazy right off the bat.

Here's my general run of events - this is a very barebones thing

check the dumpsters outside
sniper rifle on roof - shoot the bunny
cinnabun - Cinnabun is a turning point - most players have a strong reaction to it
Arcade gunfight - by this point hte players NEED to be wondering what the fuck is going on. After this point, keep ramping shit up. Don't let them recover.
Supervisor MacCready goes Col Kurtz
Book Store
Restaurant
Finale

I ad-lib shit pretty well so I throw in and change stuff around every time.

I might just not know how to work my wave correctly, but I can't even find the DG wave. Haelpp Pleasee.

And yeah, I mean Aladdin's Castle was pretty important to everyone I game with So the arcade boosting is gunna be alright.
And of course some NeoNazis, crips, and a mayors nephew?

I haven't seen you edit anything yet. Feel free to just add a bubble and start writing down your ideas.

I can't imagine a much better resource for a game like this than Mall Cops: Mall of America.  After all, where better to be a mall ninja than in a grotesquely oversized mall?  Plus, it would make it seem a lot more normal for a bunch of special-forces/covert-ops types to infiltrate mall security in what appears to be the world's elite mall security force.

Yeah, I can now see an entire night mall campaign. During the day, it's more or less a normal mall but at night...

Wow. I wish my mall was big enough that I could defend it with firearms. We don't even have a parking strucutre, just a lot.
