Eclipse Phase: Think Before Asking

An  Eclipse Phase Scenario written by Anders Sandberg and available as a free PDF.

“We call it the gorgon-in-a-box problem. There is a gorgon inside the box, and we want to figure out  what it is doing. Unfortunately we will turn to stone if we see her face, and she might try to make us see  it.

Find out in this episode!

All Flesh Must Be Eaten: Daybreakers

After seeing the film, Daybreakers, I was inspired to run a one shot based on it. Instead of following the main story of the movie though, I based it on a simple premise: the players are vampire citizens in the big city on the night when the blood riots break out. Using the All Flesh Must Be Eaten rules to model the horrific blood-starved subsiders, I let the players come up with their own plans for surviving the night. It was a short but entertaining game.

PREORDER ZOMBIES OF THE WORLD NOW AND GET A FREE POSTER!

In order to prepare for Gencon 2011, I wrote and playtested a Wild Talents zombie-themed one shot. A group of normal citizens wake up in a strange lab. They each have a super power due to the experiments conducted by the Parasol Corporation. Unfortunately, the same corporation has also released a zombie virus on the city of New Arcadia. This virus has turned normal citizens into mindless flesh eating ghouls and superhumans into intelligent flesh eating ghouls. Can these scrappy new heroes find a way to cure the virus, survive countless zombies and defeat ‘subject zero’?

This episode contains two playtests of the same scenario. The first was at Fear the Con 2011 and the second was with most of the regular RPPR group. There is a third playtest with a mix of new and old players that will be released soon.
