Even though I don't own the book, I've got a crazy notion to do a Spirit of the Century one-shot for this thing. As for what the premise/setting would be, I'm not sure, but it wouldn't be straight pulp. IIRC, quite some time ago I was on about a game wherein the PCs are part of an interdimensional security and recovery agency. SotC would be good for handling the wide variety of possible player characters that would/should be a part of something like that.

Oh -- can we make requests? Like "I'd love to try X, so if someone runs that I'm in"?

[quote="mrlost"]Well I did just buy the Dark Sun boxed set at Games Empire...[/quote]

That's funny, I just sold my Dark Sun boxed set to Games Empire. :P



I would like to try and run two games at this thing, but there's one for sure that I want to do.



Low Life. This would be a tale of high adventure, where your band of brave adventurers had discovered a map that would lead you across the Teats of Boorglazar, where you would face rampaging, cannibalistic tribes of horcs and werms, and eventually to the ruined outpost of Yewnork, there to find it's lost treasure!



The other game I'm not so sure about... I was thinking of Serenity, where your team would be hired by a rich Core worlder, to find his wayward son, who seems to be involved in illegal hover car racing out on the rim. But, not all is as it seems on this job.



A couple of other games I would like to run one shots of:



- Flatland, where your characters are literally 2-dimensional

- Torg, where multiple dimensions invade Earth.

- Diana, Warrior Princess: Imagine our present day view through eyes 2000 years in the future. Then imagine a TV show made about that time, with the same care and attention to detail we expect from shows like Xena, and you get the idea.

- BESM's Cute and Fuzzy Cockfighting Seizure Monsters, where I would do a post-apocalypses epic called Apocalyptic Monster Hunter Zero.

My Games:

Monster with a Heart of Hate (Feng Shui)
- In ancient China a devil has escaped to the future. It is the job of two Honor Guards to go forth, kill it and bring back its heart which holds the power to change history. To do this the Guardsmen must seek the help of heros from the present. Hong Kong Action in Ancient China in Hong Kong circa 1996.

The Devil in All of Us (Savage Worlds: Rippers)
- Events haven't been going well for the Rippers agency, a group that hunts down monsters during late 19th century. Someone has been leaking plans to the enemy and an entire Rippers cell has gone missing. Action adventure in Victorian England.

The Prisoners (World of Darkness) - You know something important, something someone else wants to know and that someone else has locked you up in The Village closely with 5 other someones. They're reliable but who can you really trust. Paranoia and Suspense set in the world of The Prisoner.

Within 24 hours of playing SotC yesterday, I came up with three games that I'd love to run for this thing, although right now I only have the vaguest notions of what the plot would be for each. As much as SotC is made for pulp, I found out this weekend that it's also made for plenty of other games (especially Star Wars...). Anyway:

Spirit of the Century: Across the Eighth Dimension
"Calling all Blue Blazer Irregulars...." Buckaroo Banzai and the Hong Kong Kavaliers are in trouble, and it's up to you, the local chapter of the Blue Blazer Irregulars, to pull their bacon out of the fire. But can a fanclub, however enthusiastic, succeed where their idols have failed?

Spirit of the Century: When a Plan Comes Together
One hyphenated word: A-Team. This has a pretty hard limit of four players. I just think it'd be awesome to play characters who have aspects like "I Love It When a Plan Comes Together" or "I Ain't Flyin', Hannibal!"

Spirit of the Cimmerian
Pulp-style sword & sorcery in REH's Hyboria. There's not much to say about this one, but I think you'd have to experience the system to know how awesome it'd be for Conan.


EDIT: Oops. Thought of another on the way home.

Spirit of the Future
"Good news, everyone!" Interplanetary package delivery in the year 3000!

The Conan one sounds fun interesting. I really want to try Spirit of the Century though.
Whenever I get confused about D&D alignment morality, I just imagine Abraham Lincoln and Mahatma Ghandi arm wrestling shirtless on the back of a killer whale.

In other words, I remember that it doesn't really make a whole lot of sense and deal with it best I can.

Okay, I gotta vote for Buckaroo Bonzai.

And as much as I am a fan of the Prisoner, I would have to say that Rippers sounds cooler. Plus, I really dig the Savage Worlds system.

Dark Sun: the Eye of Imix

Post by mrlost » Mon Feb 19, 2007 10:42 am

On a world ravaged by sorcery and the hellish rays of a crimson sun, seven travelers will venture far in search of a legend. Across the desolate barren and rocky wastes of the Tablelands, the bone dry shores of the Silt Sea, and through the salt covered Great Ivory Plains on an expedition in search of the fabled Eye of Imix.

The Eye is a flame red diamond the size of a man's heart that is said to hold the key to savage elemental powers lost since the days of old. According to rumor the jewel lies in a ruined castle on the shore of an inland sea long since faded to dust under the relentless gaze of the Dark Sun.

A Castles and Crusades adventure in the Age of Kings for up to six brave souls. Pregens provided.

Do you have the courage to withstand the fury of Dark Sun?


EDIT: I also vote for Buckaroo Banzi!

Mike you have me with Buckaroo Banzai

Chris...The Feng Shui has got me drooling but since I played in your Vampire game awhile back I can see your Prisoner game out shinning anything possible

Mr Lost...Senior citizen II. I can see this game being at every annual meet up

Blanche....Serenity totally beats out the stinky poo fight of Low Life. Albeit Low Life roxxors!

Ok here is my Feng Shui idea...I think it should be different enough from Chris's idea.

The Killers at Gila Bend

Gila Bend is a dry barren wasteland in the middle of a desert, we call Arizona. You might stop there to take a pee and a dump but you’ll never really stay. In fact, only thing that will stay is the crap you leave behind. The town is on a strip of high way leading out of Phoenix to no where...
Truckers and weary tourists take a break at the Javelina Pit Stop to fill up on gas and maybe get a one pound bag of jerky for $12.99 for the long road ahead. This isn’t the place where you think the fate of the world will be decided by a handful of people living on the fringe of society. But it is!
There’s a motorcycle gang, hitmen and a boat load of Japanese tourist with cameras. Oh the shit is going to hit the fan tonight…and tonight the Gila Bend is the fan.
Ready for martial arts fun in the vein of Big Trouble in Little China and the replacement killers?!

Oh, and those who created polls for your games, are you only submitting the one with the most votes?

That was the plan.



So it looks like Dark Sun is my submission since the interest for zombies is lukewarm.

Chris have both games you want submitted....He's going to have another poll with everyones proposed games. The top voted games get headlined at the meet up...Just be prepared to do it if the voting favors yours or if some one drops out.



We've had some games be so popular that they needed to be run twice. Like Mords Adventure and Cthulhu's THS.

Looks like SotC: Across the Eighth Dimension has the most "votes," so that'd probably be my primary submission. I'm shocked -- shocked! -- that SotC: When a Plan Comes Together didn't get any attention... I thought that'd be a surefire winner.

I would've voted for it, but I'm not sure I'll be able to be there. (I suspect that "When a Plan Comes Together" would appeal to a very specific age group.)

Hrm... seems like a lot of games this year to vote on. I'm uncertain as to whether I should even submit any ideas. But okay, I will anyway...

My first idea is a dystopian near-future setting (ala Blade Runner) supers game using Wild Talents, where you are "heroes" working for the (oppressive but well-paying) government, hunting down renegade supers.

My second idea is using Deadlands Reloaded. The PCs will come in to a small town beset by mysteries left and right, and it's up to the them to put things a-right.

Naaa.. AMHZ didn't get enough votes to warrant putting it on the big vote list. I'll just have it as a back-up, just in case. :)

These are both "4 teh win!!1!" but I think I like the Wild Talents game better. I'm curious to try out this ORE thing.

professional GM comes out of retirement

Post by To Peace » Thu Feb 22, 2007 9:48 pm

Oscar Simmons is offering his services for the upcoming San Diego meet up with one of two games: Operation Jungle Drums for Heavy Gear or In the Shadow of the Crab for the Legend of the 5 Rings.

Operation jungle drums features an elite team of gear pilots as they investigate mysterious strikes against material cargo shipments within their own borders.

In the shadow of the crab follows an eclectic group of samurai as they are gathered together to conduct a non partisan investigation of a seemingly cursed land within the Crab territory.

Both of these games were originally created to introduce new players to their respective systems and have received numerous accolades. Would you care to be a part of either of these great games? (more details available on request.)

With over sixteen years of GM experience, Oscar started his professional GM career with Dream Pod 9 in 1996. He founded the Pod Corps in Austin, Texas; San Diego, California; and Tokyo, Japan. In 1999 he was recruited by AEG President and founder, John Zinser, to promote the Legend of the Five Rings role playing game. With an ever expanding family and responsibilities, his free time has lapsed, but he continues to be a fan of both companies.

We don't have a date yet, nope. You bring up a valid point. We usually vote on dates too. So, since this even will most likely happen at the wintermute/neuro residence, I propose they start the date suggestions, and we go from there.

We will set two dates as possibilities, soon. I have become very ill and this may affect the scheduling.

This is a frickin' awesome lineup.



The name of my game may change, but whatever.



And get well right quick, Neuro -- not because of this thing, necessarily, but just so you're, y'know, not sick.

I hope everyone remembers that out of that big list o' games, there'll probably be only around 4-6 actually run.

PS - get well, Neuro!!

Yeah, but any four to six out of those 11 would be great. I get so tired of people running RPGA events at our One-Shot Days. I'm like, "I don't give a shit! Living [i]what[/i]? What the [i]fuck [/i]are you talking about?"

WHAAA?!?! When did this happen?

Whenever I get confused about D&D alignment morality, I just imagine Abraham Lincoln and Mahatma Ghandi arm wrestling shirtless on the back of a killer whale.

In other words, I remember that it doesn't really make a whole lot of sense and deal with it best I can.

I have a general question... the crew I have in mind for the Serenity one-shot I'm working on is 5 people... is that good, or should I make it 6?
