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!

Mutant Crawl Classics: The Museum at the End of Time

mccWith 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!

Eclipse Phase: The Outside Context Problem

blame-tunnelProxy Cogburn, leader of the Firewall presence on exoplanet Minerva 4, is personally leading a team of agents to explore a possible X-threat on Wormwood, an infamous gatecrashing site. Wormwood is nothing but a massive tunnel network stretching out for hundreds of kilometers in all directions from its gate. It is believed to be an asteroid, but no one has found a way out yet and the tunnels have yet to be fully mapped. Several weeks ago, a Firewall sentinel and gatecrasher stationed on Wormwood detected a rogue team of explorers who breached a wall and disappeared. Given that Wormwood was built by an alien civilization, Firewall needs to make sure the explorers haven’t unleashed some hellish alien technology that could pose a threat to transhumanity. Little do the other agents realize that Cogburn (formerly known as Gerard) might have a hidden agenda.
