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:

As Blossoms Fall

A pre-feudal Japanese oneshot about five people torn between the terrible weight of duty and the bonds of feeling between them: forced to choose what they will save, what they will give up, and what they will destroy.

This adventure was designed by Luke Jordan originally created for live play in a convention setting. The module features a custom resolution mechanic, with heavy emphasis on character-driven roleplay. The Actual Play was ran by RPPR’s “Most Innovative” GM, Bridget, at GenCon 2018, featuring veteran RPPR cast members and a few newcomers. Atmospheric and moody, this is RPPR at its best.

If you would like to run this scenario yourself, you can obtain it from Luke’s itch.io page for a reasonable price. If you want to see more high quality content from our “Most Innovative” GM, Bridget’s patreon can be found here.
