What game should I run?

Post by BlanchPrez » Tue Feb 13, 2007 10:04 am

I'm having trouble picking the two games I want to run, so I thought I'd open it up to you guys, and see what games you want to play! :)

Below is the descriptions of the games. Pick the two you want to play from this list. The poll is set up with multiple choice.

Serenity: You and your crew sail the black, trying to find what ever work you can, honest if possible, not-so-honest if necessary, and always as far away form the Alliance as you can make it. So, when your contact on Persephone contacts you about a job for a rich businessman from the Core, you’re surprised. But, the money offered is too good to pass up, so you meet this guy. The job is simple. His son is missing, and the lad seems fond of illegal hover-car racing, he would like the boy brought back under the wire, so as to avoid a scandal. Sounds simple enough, but not everything on this job is as it seems.

Low Life: You are all recent graduates of the University of Treasure Hunters in the city of Floom, when you get a message from an old professor, Smergan von Smergan. It seems ol’ Smergan has discovered the location of the Lost Treasure of Yewnork, and he wants your help! You’ll travel across the Teats of Boorglazar, face carnivorous tribes of werms and horcs, solve mysterious puzzles and overcome death-traps, and possibly unoith some artifacts of the hoomanrace!

Torg: Later today, early tomorrow, some time next week, they came. Invaders, raiders from… someplace else, transforming pieces of the world to look and act like the realities they came from. They came to conquer and destroy, but mostly to steal Earth’s possibilities. In the wake of the Reality Storms their invasions produced, you were changed. You went from being an everyday person to someone that can bend reality itself. You became Storm Knights, fighting to protect Earth from these invaders. Some of you are from Earth, others are Earth natives changed by the invading realities, and others still are aliens from the invaders worlds fighting against the evil your people have spread to Earth. Now, traveling together in a transformed Africa, you hear a psychic scream, a plea for help, and you all feel compelled to respond!

Flatland: You are all upstanding, honest figures of the State, friends or servants of Sir Septimus Septagon. Recently, in a village near Sir Septagon’s estates, an Isosceles family gave birth to an Equilateral, a momentous occasion. As is customary, the child was being escorted to another village, where he would be adopted into a Regular family. Unfortunately, along the way, the escorts were attacked by bandits, Isosceles mostly, but being lead by a shadowy figure, some say a pentagon, while others whisper that he was an Irregular Figure! Sir Septagon offers a reward of 50 gold to any that can recover the child.

Apocalyptic Monster Hunter Zero: In the future, after decades of constant warfare, constant stripping of resources and general deterioration of the environment, the world died. In those areas clear of radiation, the survivors try to re-build the world, pushing back the radioactive wastelands. Out of these wastelands came monsters. Cute, fuzzy, powerful monsters, that children were capable of befriending. With these monsters at their side, humanity feels they have a chance. You are monster trainers, traveling from town to town. You’ve now come to the town of Red Rock, who is experiencing trouble in the form of bandits. Can you help the town by defeating the bandits, and discovering who it is that’s behind the recent attacks?

It may also be that people will need to one run, rather than two games, if there are a lot of people who want to run. So you should probably pick a favorite and a standby if we have space for people to run two.

I can do that, once I have it narrowed down to two.

I'd want AMHZ just for the name, but for actual playin', I voted for something else.

I voted Serenity.

If I recall, we usually hold a vote to see who wants what so that potential GMs can get prepared. But even the stuff that gets voted on sometimes doesn't end up being run. Last year I had an Adventure! scenario created cuz it was voted in, but we never actually got to it.

Yeah, I had a Battlestar Galactica one-shot halfway ready to go, but it didn't get the votes. (And now the show has moved so far beyond that scenario I was going to run that I'm not even going to bother.) Knowing what you want to run is no guarantee that you'll actually end up running it.

Oh, okay. I wasn't sure what the process was. Didn't mean to jump the gun.

Well it's perfectly fine for you to have a poll for people to vote so you can narrow it down.



But afterwards those of us who want to run will have our games compiled into a list and everyone will vote. Those games with the most votes will be run. That's how we've done it both years.
