MAOCT: Sucrose Park at Fear the Con 2011

WE CAN'T STOP HERE - THIS IS ROBOT COUNTRY I ran one of my favorite chapters from Road Trip at Fear the Con 4 with special player Chad Wattler from Fear the Boot. As before, the intrepid kids and their monster pals are investigating a strange theme park in Las Vegas called Sucrose Park. Kids enter but they never leave. At the center of the mystery is a giant brain and the bizarre mascot, Cool Rat. Enjoy! (Sorry about the noise levels but it’s unavoidable during con games).

Special thanks to Violet Kirk for the art!

What happens after the heroes pass through Sucrose Park and defeat Cool Rat? A group of kids finds out that robots with true AI,  self-replicating technology and errant programming shouldn’t be left unmonitored. Kids have been kidnapped from tourist traps from around the country and forced to join strange factions in a weird underground facility. The robots have something planned but it’s hard to tell what.  This game is based on material from the campaign Road Trip published by Arc Dream.

MAOCT: Candlewick Manor at Gencon 09

I ran a game of Candlewick Manor at Gencon 2009 for 7 lucky players including my co-host Tom Church. In short, bad things happen to weird children. The new orphans of Candlewick find themselves confronted with a lake monster, the strange residents of Candlewick township and more! What a tangled web we weave…

Monsters and Other Childish Things: Sucrose Park

Designed as the ultimate daycare center, Las Vegas’ Sucrose Park looks after thousands of kids while their parents gamble away their college tuition in nearby casinos. A corporate wonderland of rides, ball pits, arcades and the mascot CoolRat await. Too bad the owner of the park never wants anyone to leave. Ever. Instead, when the parents come to pick up their kids, a robot duplicate is given to them and few parents notice the difference. After all, they’re too concerned with how much money they just lost. The players discover that the owner is a monster who decided that it couldn’t be friends with just one kid, it had to be friends with all children. All the neon lights and laser tag arenas can’t hide the fact that Sucrose Park is a prison. It’s time to break out.
