A few months ago, Dan offered to run a Star Wars game using Wild Talents and Star ORE, along with a few other house rules. It only lasted two sessions but they were fun! So, to provide some holiday cheer, I present to you the Ballad of Kevin Starchaser (and his friends). They have a spaceship and make poor life decisions. Also: Star Wars.
In this playtest of a Gencon scenario written by Aaron, a group of kids look into a mystery and stumble across a time traveling conspiracy of Men in Black and even more sinister foes! When a friendly monster disappears, a group of kids and their monster buddies look for their friend. Their search takes them to a junkyard…on the edge of Forever. Well, I could post more, but I don’t want to spoil it for you. Does anyone even read these things? I don’t know. The important thing is that Aaron ran a great game.
Synopsis: The SCP Foundation watches over the most dangerous and unnatural objects and beings on Earth. When they acquire a new object, they send a team of analysts to study and evaluate it. SCP 5252 is an unusual object of unknown origin but a team of scientists and engineers, along with their offsite mission leader, will do their best to learn its secrets. But will they survive the mission? Find out in this special one shot!
Synopsis: The hospital has shown its dark side to the patients of Ward 2, but more horrors await them. The patients won’t go down without a fight though. As each patient tries to figure out the mystery behind the night nurses and other abominations that stalk the halls of Our Lady’s. As a winter storm further isolates the patients from the outside world, will they manage to survive the tender mercies of the bird-masked doctor? Find out in the chilling finale of Invasive Procedures!
I picked up the scenario Invasive Procedures at Gencon this year and I ran it for some of the RPPR crew as a 3 part game. I’ve decided to post the games as a build up to Halloween. I think you’ll enjoy these episodes. From the scenario’s introduction:
“The kids all say Our Lady’s Hospital is haunted. You can see why, when you look at it, that big gloomy pile of staring windows and rusting beds. They should have torn the place down years ago, instead of letting it linger on like this. I’d hate to be a patient there. They send you there to die.
You are a patient in an old, rambling hospital. Part of it is shut down, part of it lies in decay. The equipment is out of date, the staff are unmotivated and the whole place reeks of disinfectant, death and seventy years of despair. The hospital has ghosts and spirits walking the halls but they are the least of your worries. You should be afraid of what comes out at night. You should be afraid of what makes the ghosts flee.”
