Red Markets

Red Markets: Black Death at Origins 2019

In Medieval Europe, the Black Death has taken countless lives. Some of its victims have arisen as the restless undead, killing any who fall in their grasp. The survivors huddle together in walled fortresses and towns, trying to eke a living. Some of the hardier survivors take mercenary work, no matter how dangerous it is. One such team has agreed to retrieve a spice chest from an abandoned fortress. What price will they pay to complete their mission?

This game was run by Ethan Cordray of Technical Difficulties podcast, using his beta version of Red Markets Black Death, a medieval hack of Red Markets.

Cast: Ross, Birk, Adam T (from RPX), and Greg B.

Red Markets: Papers, Please at Patrecon 2018

A group of Takers have been hired to secure printers and laminating machines from a DMV in an overrun mall. Along the way, they will have to fight casualties, a toll booth, and other Takers. I ran this game for a group of mostly new players at Patrecon 2018. Be sure to check out the following creators:

Red Markets: The Torus

Shipping Rates Lowered for Red Markets! PREORDER NOW!

A powerful tech company’s main campus fell to the undead five years ago. Today, the hordes have scattered enough that taker crews can access the Torus. One such crew will attempt to accomplish multiple jobs at once while on site. Will they make a profit or will their greed doom them? Find out as special guest players Adam Scott Glancy (preorder Delta Green!), Peter Nielsen, (author of Galaxy Inc.) Micah Nielsen (check out Drunken Dwarf Designs for great LARPing gear) and RPPR’s own Faust (check out Thrilling Intent!)

Red Markets – Cowboy Singing

A new group of takers has formed in the enclave of Trabajo, looking for work. A client in the Recession wants them to retrieve a painting, Thomas Eakin’s “Cowboy Singing” from a museum in Denver. Venturing into the heart of a city is never easy or safe, but the pay is worth it.

This is the first of three games I ran in different systems, linked by famous paintings, a triptych if you will. Enjoy!

Red Markets: Fallen Flag – Episode 13

Just One Last Score. Mr. JOLS. It is time for Fallen Flag to seek out Two Banners, a theme park held by a violent cult of archivists. The territory and its resources are invaluable, so Fallen Flag must push the cult out to succeed. Of course, there’s a reason why no one else has wiped out the cult. Their secret weapon may be too much for Fallen Flag to handle, but the die has been cast. Even if the crew takes the water park, what will happen to them? Will they reach retirement? Can they ever be happy again? Find out in the campaign finale of Fallen Flag!
