Kevin, from Walking Eye podcast has asked me to be on his show. We thought we’d talk about cool games and game hacks being written about in AP threads and such. I figured I’d update the games going on at my table and ask you all what was happening at your own.
13 Cities: This game continues, now with Pete added to the mix. We are taking the next campaign to the neighboring land of Occulum; the whole thing should have quite a different flavor than the past arcs set in and around the 13 Cities themselves and I think we are all hungry for combat and blood, so Fight! and Range & Cover should be in heavy rotation.
MoBu City: Pete and I are hitting this game about once a month or more as our schedules allow. When we sit down to play, it is as if we never left. In the coming games, we will get on our first legit heist and finish up the last heist by constructing a lie that will have to be sold to a demi-goddess. I love this shit. It is New Crobuzon meets the Gentlemen Bastards in a Burning Wheel pastiche.
Friday Night: We are going to play some Danger Patrol with Pete at the helm, while we sort out what to play next. Storn is really hot and heavy for some swords & sorcery that is less humancentric than our 13 Cities game, so we are looking at Jaws of the Six Serpents. At some point I will have to write up a debrief post-game post on Diaspora.
For Danger Patrol, I get to play, Jack Geist, the spy who haunts the solar system:
Special Agent Jack Geist traveled the solar system in service to the most noble governments of Old Earth. He was investigating a Stygian conspiracy when the atomics were dropped back home. When he heard the news, he lost all hope and in the reckless, grief-driven days that followed, the Stygian Overlord he had been tracking down got the better of him and he was killed.
His remains were spready all over the ten planets and when he gathers them all together, he will rest and join his family and friends who died in the last Earth war. Until then, he haunts the solar system, smoking Lucky Ghost cigarettes and serving the Danger Patrol.
Sorcerer 2289: Me, Bret and Christine are getting together and playing Sorcerer, taking my science fiction solar system out for a spin. The game is set on Mars with Bret’s outlaw medical researcher and Christine’s R&D exec wrestling with xeno-techological demons. The kickers look really promising.
And you, what is going on at your table?
