Gauntlet Playtesting Weekend
Vow of the Knight-Aspirants: Into the Bleakwood
Alexi S. runs for Brandon Brylawski, David L., Greg G., and Marc Majcher
In the very first playtest of a new game, we follow a quartet of squires venturing into a dark fairy tale wood to prove themselves worthy of knighthood. Bronwen strikes down a wolf that turns out to be a cursed man. Lancer recovers tome full of spells and considers whom it rightly belongs to. Ozadeam glimpses a terrible future and works to prevent it. Caelia taunts an angry mob and a bitter sorceress to buy time and space for her allies.
Marc Majcher runs for Erez, Jim Likes Games, Pat P., and Sebastian Deterding
In our first online playtest of Icebox: Timeline, we learned a bucketload of interesting things about the post-Deviation journey of the Sequoia, including the secret cloning project of the mission leaders, the cells of resistance that grew into fullness over several hundred years, and why you always want an uplifted chimpanzee in your air ducts. 😄 Thanks so much to our players for helping to bring I:T from the tabletop to the onlines!
Donogh runs for Blake Ryan, Brandon Brylawski, David Schultz, and Horst Wurst
An unexpected pregnancy, a mining collapse, and dark visions of death creep into the dreams of these few villagers. But their dreams come from the Devil, and are a foretelling of the future...
Uncharted Worlds 2E: The Cluster (Session 4 of 8)
Alun R. runs for Grey, Joe F, and Pawel S.
We discover what Harper was doing while Gema and Riley were fighting off a gang in the neon washed alleys of Hub City before fast forwarding to the surface of Zandora. This is the principle world of the Fertility system, with its implausibly large number of garden worlds. Riley's star power fails, Gema's silent menace speaks eloquently, and Harper remembers the Zandoran cowboy tri-dees of his childhood. A local vet helps with an increasingly wakeful problem before there's a chance to experience local culture. Then...rumours of a hollow planet, a train, and a robbery...and a 'dinosaur' on the loose.
Delta Green: Divergence (Session 8)
Lowell Francis runs for Alun R., Horst Wurst, Paul Rivers, and Will H
The team begins to investigate Hoachapoka, AL and right away walk into the lion's mouth between a spotted surveillance drone and a roadside shakedown by cops. But their reception shifts as half the team finds themselves in sinister luxury and the other half in creeping squalor.
The Twilight Throne: Throne of Oblivion (Session 5 of 9)
Jesse A. runs for Darold Ross, Harry Coins, José Feito, and Steven S.
Our Nobles regroup after freeing the Twin Soul.
Fate of the Faerie Queen (Session 9 of 10)
Shane runs for José Feito, Kyle H., and Lowell Francis
In a small town with a strange history, the characters pretend to be podcasters to try and learn the truth behind some local legends. But when they find a powerful fey being in disguise at a truckstop, things start to fall apart, and they find themselves travelling further than they ever expected.
Old School Essentials: Against the Slavers (Session 6)
Mike Ferdinando runs for Harry Coins, Jim Likes Games, and Tim Leitner
AD&D module A2: "Secret of the Slavers Stockade" (published in 1981) - Zalalaz, Topaz, Kaf, and Clintock continue their infiltration of the slavers' stronghold, and sneak their their way into the main fortress...they have thus far evaded detection, but for how much longer?
Star Wars Saturday
Bounty of the Week: For A Few Creds More (Finale) (Session 9 of 9)
Will H runs for Anders, Paul Rivers, Rich Rogers, and Sabine V.
SHOWDOWN ON KAMINO! PANDIT MORG, the padawan turned BLACK SUN crimeboss, strikes back! The Crew of the Bright Beauty do one last job but this time, it's personal. Can they rescue BLX-1?
Gun & Slinger (Session 1 of 3)
Donogh runs for Rich Rogers and Sabine V.
August the Gun and Clock his Slinger walk the land seeking the Sorcerer, who brought the Twist to this world. When the Night-Beasts speak to them, they know they are on the right track; to a small farmhouse with a garden maintained by Helen, the Sorcerer's sister...
