A group of private investigators in the 1970s are hired to look into the new members of an exclusive country club. They have wealth, power, stolen art, and connections to organized crime. They also have sinister plans. The investigators will face everyone from low level street gangs to a conspiracy they never would have imagined…at the Country Club.
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!
With an unsettling combination of eager anticipation and uneasy courage, you and the friends of your youth face the portentous prospect of setting out upon your Rite of Passage. Your parents and extended families embrace you for what may be the last time. You pat your slung leather pouch full of jerked roxen meat and your overfull waterskin, making sure it’s all there, as you cradle the ﬂint dagger carried in a thigh-bound sheath. You seek triumph and technology, winning it with mutations and magic, soaked in the radiation and quantum fields of the mutated, the savage, the semi-sentient, and the artificially intelligent. There are treasures to be won in the taboo lands and ruins, and you shall have them.
This funnel adventure was released as a free preview adventure for Mutant Crawl Classics, which is being Kickstarted right now. If you dig crazy sci-fi dungeon crawling, check it out!
