The Urban Guerrilla Gaming thread has gone silent for to long. I call all you gamers out there and challenge one and all to propose a new game for our thread. My gaming juices are flowing (get that dirty thought out of your head, unless of course you are by some miracle a hot chick reading this crazy thread. If so post a pic:worthless:)
Anyway back to the subject at hand who will step forward and take up the gauntlet that I've cast? Who's got the muscle for the tussle, who has the grit to get hit?

I could do a one shot of my Halloween adventure:
THE MASK OF NEIL MARLOW'S PET
For Halloween, Neil Marlow bought a mask for his pug dog, Moochie, from a thrift bazaar held at St. Michaelâ€™s Church. Unknown to Neil, and anyone at the bazaar, was the unique nature of the mask
Also thinking maybe a simple rehashed D&D adventure game I did way back when:
Nicophears Magic Shop Emporium
This is that game I told you where the players are like the repo men of D&D. So instead of going down to dungeon and kill the dragon to get the treasure because that would be cool. You're going down the dungeon and making the dragon return back the magic she did not pay for and get the interest on damaged items because that would be the reality. Also when you were not working on repo-assignments you would go on various mission to collect spell components for mass production. Welcome to the Corporate Wallmart of D&D...at least they're not outsourcing jobs to the Astral Planes

I won't be free until really until May, but was hoping to get back into gaming then (at least until September when I get busy again).

I don't know if you kids will welcome me back, but I would be willing to go for the occasional random one-shot. If you didn't live so far away and in the wrong direction for traffic, it would be way easier to do this whole thing.
I will not commit to campaigns, but if you want to try out random stuff, I could probable be available.
Posted: Tue Apr 08, 2008 6:57 pm
yeah I was thinking a one shot or something episodic would work for folks
Posted: Thu Apr 10, 2008 10:42 am
I could do the occasional one shot/episodic game as well.
Posted: Thu Apr 10, 2008 5:47 pm
Is that all you guys are good for is one shot
. What are yah guys porn actors? Welcome back Uber. Would you guys be willing to do a one shot Rune Quest Adventure?
Posted: Thu Apr 10, 2008 6:39 pm
yes you bastard!

I will call him "batard" to sound more french ;P

However will be hard to commit to campaign with a baby due in July...

It's like CoC only no SAN and U can kill beasties

Yes it is similar to Call of Cthulu as far as the rule of the game. It is based on a Fantasy Setting Called Glorantha. Which has a flavor more close to the Roman Empire and the Bronze age than the Mid Evil type setting of classic D&D.
In RuneQuest there are no levels, no experience points. Your character improves in his skill through successful use of his skills and training. The fights are bloody and more deadly, you can lose limbs, and even your head. No Vorpal Sword needed.
I have an idea of what the scenario will be for this one shot. I think it will be a competition. Many warriors come together to showcase their skills, their courage, their athleticism and guile.
There will be more to come and a cast of characters, should there be interest.

Anyone got a game they want to run? I might have lost my desire to run, but still want to play if we can get something going...
Posted: Thu May 15, 2008 5:04 pm
Given that my SLAVE game doesn't look promising for the meet-up, I'd be willing to run it as a one-shot for all ya'll.

Oh thank GOD!!! Let's play that. I be willing to host if we figure out a time and day. When it only got minimal vote I was getting depressed.
Posted: Fri May 16, 2008 9:26 am
I've never been much good at playing bad guys.
Just let me know when and where.
Posted: Fri May 16, 2008 10:46 am
Right, well. This is SoTC based supervillainry. I'm reposting the application form here.
We can do this a few ways.
1. I bring a selection of wacky Supervillains for you to choose from.
2. You each post resumes for Supervillains of your own creation. No stats necessary, just whip out a resume/CV/cover letter and post it here.
3. Some combination of steps 1 and 2.
Is there some particular weekday evening people would prefer for this to occur on? My weekends are looking ugly for the next month.

Uber, this looks very interesting. I'm open most nights as long as I have notice. Resume coming.
Posted: Tue May 27, 2008 4:48 pm
I was wondering if we should just put this in the one-shots category?
Posted: Wed May 28, 2008 12:07 am
Some of the players might not know the SoTC format with aspects
Posted: Wed May 28, 2008 11:01 am
Well, that is why you should send your Supervillain's resume. So relevant details like superpowers, origin, arch-nemesis, general attitude, and salary requirements will all be right there.
I'll convert that to a skeleton character sheet for gaming purposes. People can fiddle and change those character sheets to their liking during the game once they get the hang of it or if I ask them to roll something. The whole thing will very much be a pick-up game.
Posted: Thu May 29, 2008 7:04 am
I dont' know the system, setting or anything beyond supervillians. Just tell me when and where and I'll just play whatever character you have.

George Poser III
1244 Kingsberry, apartment 12
Frosty the Snowman
Vice of Ice
1998-2001 Altas Sinister Societyâ€¦held position of Union Representative. Title U Rep A.S.S.
1988-1995 The Terrible Triadâ€¦with Face Mangler(deceased) and Master Funk Factor(deceased)
[SIZE="3"]Powers:[/SIZE] Frozen Touch, Wall of Ice, Project high velocity snow balls of death and destruction and can sustain myself in sub zero conditions. Co-workers will appreciate my [font="Arial Black"]ability to serve cold beer at party functions.[/font]
[SIZE="3"]Weakness:[/SIZE] Extreme heat. I have the unfortunate ability to pick names that have copy right issues or is a name someone else that has established the name before me. Iâ€™ve been sued more times than I care to remember. Iâ€™m in debt as a result and have had to file for bankruptcy. Iâ€™m hoping my current title does not violate any intellectual property.
[SIZE="3"]Nemesis:[/SIZE] The people who want to sue me like Midway games and the ABC Holiday special department. On a professional level: Little Miss Sunshine(My illegitimate child) and The Board Flamer
I think Iâ€™m a perfect fit to any team. Iâ€™ve worked in a medium size group (The Terrible Triad) and belong to A.S.S. for several years before I was asked to step down for changing my name to Witches Teat, which as you can see has changed. As a solo worker in the field I have specialized in Kidnapping, Bank Robbery, Vandalism, several attempts at becoming a dictator of small countries and Cult leader. Iâ€™m dependable and love the work of Jackson Pollack, which I have stolen several times.
It's my name until someone tells me otherwise

[SIZE="5"]Alternate Cycle 5[/SIZE]
Good day Flesh sack. Iâ€™m the infamous cyborg Alternate Cycle 5. You have probably already heard of me and my exploits but let me give you some of my high lights from my career.
2003 I devoured the sacred cow of Jack in the box to gain my powers of awesome killing
2003 My body soon melded with the mechanical components of my mothers Whirlpool Washer.
I killed the White Mongoose of Justice in 2003 with my magical katana â€˜Otaku.â€™
In 2004 I was caught stealing from Fort Knox and realized stealing is for pussies
In 2005 I broke out of Arkham Asylumn because there was not enough Thorazine to keep me down
In 2005 I killed the judge that sentence me. I also killed his puppy â€˜Filch.â€™ Just remember automatic rifles are the bomb
In 2005 I killed my mothers neighbors for parking in our drive way.
In 2006 I was arrested for hacking into various websites to kill kittens and for stealing my neighbors cable, which I got off on because they were dead anyways, so it wasnâ€™t stealing. Because stealing is for pussies.
In 2006 I proclaimed I was the God of Ultimate Destruction on Fox NBC News. No one took that news seriously so I broke into CNN and tried the same thing. I made Wolf Blitzer my bitch on TV before that stupid super hero Assunder came in when I was not looking.
In 2006 I got the braces of ultimate power for my teeth. Bling bling baby!
In 2007 I held David Hasselhoff hostage for 40 days till the ransom was paid. I have video of him being my bitch during the whole time. I canâ€™t fight that feeling Biatch!
In 2007 I broke into Target and went on rampage. Clubbed little kids down with a sponge Bob Doll before Assunder came in and broke up that fun time.
In 2007 I broke out of Pescadero State Hospital Prison because there is not enough Haldol to stop what I got going! Before I broke out my therapist suggested that I build on my social skills and associate with peers appropriate for my age. So here I am to be part of a team with my peers.
SO I figure this is one of those entry level positions, but I donâ€™t care. Itâ€™s better than flipping burgers. Iâ€™m like really strong and can take lots of punishment. Just ask my Step-Father. My major weakness is deciding between cutting someone up or bludgeoning some one down. I figure my team mates could help me through those indecisive moments. Now if this is one of those organizations that want to steal from people or governments then Iâ€™ll be ok with it if I get to kill some one or some thing. Because stealing is for pussies but Iâ€™m a team player in the big picture. So yeah dude hire me and you wonâ€™t be disappointedâ€¦ unless you drug test of course.
Alternate Cycle 5
Hey dude if you need to get a hold of me call 555-2398 and let my mom know your looking for me.

Drew you really need to know anything beyond what would be a cool supervillian
Like the guys I posted above. All he needs is a simple description. You can also take one of the ones I just wrote up or ones that he writes up.
How about we play in June 11 my place?
Posted: Mon Jun 02, 2008 10:51 am
Awesome characters Skyman.
The 11th of June works for me.

From: THE ADMINISTRATOR
Please see to the recruitment of the Crimson Rage. As you may be aware our efforts of converting the Unstoppable Crimson to our cause has mostly succeeded. After the murder of his wife/partner by his own sidekick caused him psychotic break and he is now calling himself the Crimson Rage and is bent of world destruction. Perhaps the right insentive will put his efforts to use for us.
See attached video file:
Failure to comply will be met with termination (and we don't mean your employment!).

Excellent. That is another anguished SuperVillain added to the mix.
Anything from Mike B? Are we expecting anyone else?

Don't know but I'm going to move this to the One Shot forum
Posted: Mon Jun 09, 2008 8:52 pm
Hey, sorry about saying I'm going to put up a resume and not doing it and still not doing it. Doh!! Anyway the concept sounds good and I would be still willing to try it out. I can make it on 6/11, but I don't get off of work till 6:30pm that day, so I couldn't be there till 7:00pm.
Posted: Mon Jun 09, 2008 9:37 pm
I was going to ask what time we should start as well.
Mike, if you have a character concept at the game session, we can make a character on the fly. Otherwise, you can choose among one of the Supervillains I'll be bringing along.
Posted: Mon Jun 09, 2008 11:36 pm
7 sounds good
Posted: Tue Jun 10, 2008 3:50 pm
No chance we could swap for the 12th? Julie has plans on Thursday evening but not Wednesday and since her birthday is Friday (yes her BD is Fri the 13th this year) it would be better for me to game on Thursday instead of Wednesday. She likes to get a head start on her birthday.
Posted: Wed Jun 11, 2008 7:49 am
I can make it tomorrow, but would prefer today if possible.
Either way, let me know!
Posted: Wed Jun 11, 2008 7:56 am
Tonight's fine... I just need to know where.
Posted: Wed Jun 11, 2008 9:37 am
I believe we are meeting at Skyman's.
Chime in if that is not the case...
Posted: Wed Jun 11, 2008 9:46 am
That much I know, but what I don't know is where his place is.
Posted: Wed Jun 11, 2008 10:24 am
Check your inbox. I forwarded his info.
Posted: Wed Jun 11, 2008 10:40 am
See you there and then...
Posted: Wed Jun 11, 2008 12:52 pm
I've been to Simons before, but I can't remember exactly what house, could you send me that info to Uber. I'm willing to play a random Villian, unless I can think of something cool before I get there.
Posted: Wed Jun 11, 2008 1:30 pm
Info should be in your inbox.
Random Supervillains are abundant. I've run this scenario as a campaign and as a one-shot twice, so I can whip something up in moments.
Posted: Wed Jun 11, 2008 1:39 pm
damn I'm behind
Posted: Wed Jun 11, 2008 2:46 pm
Cool Uber, see yah all there
Posted: Wed Jun 11, 2008 4:58 pm
Reality is interferring with my gaming fun today. Just found out we have family coming in this weekend for Julie's birthday so I have way too much to do to get out tonight. Really sorry about the late notice! Was looking forward to it!
