In our very first game of 5E Dungeons and Dragons, Sean tries GMing for the first time! Fortunately, this turned out less train-wreckish than the Haunting. After a long war, a formerly powerful nation struggles to rebuild. The switch from monarchy to a republic form of government has also raised tensions between the various political factions. In other words, this is the fantasy Weimar Republic. The new government has appointed a group of troubleshooters to find and capture a dissident leader. Can they find their man? Will he go quietly? The answer is no, we’re playing Dungeons and Dragons, not Dungeons and non-violent solutions to our problems. More background info on the game’s setting is available here.
Five Nights at Freddy’s is a scary video game about a creepy restaurant with even creepier animatronic robots. In other words, it is a perfect fit for Monsters and Other Childish Things. A group of kids visit Freddy’s and get very special prizes that grant them strange new powers (and a very special friend!). Unfortunately for them, it also teleports them into Freddy’s after the restaurant closes. Can they survive the night? Even if they survive that night, can they survive the other nights? I mean it says FIVE nights, that implies more than one night. Anyway, enjoy this special horrific one shot, just in time for Halloween!
In early August 2008, Russia invaded the Republic of Georgia from the North. The Georgian government had expected a Black Sea landing and had deployed its army in the west. Taken off guard, a special forces team was hastily assembled and dropped into the northern part of South Ossetia -a place formally part of Georgia but with many rebel groups wanting to break away. Their mission was to destroy the Roki Tunnel, delaying the Russian army until the Georgians could redeploy. Historically, they failed to destroy the tunnel and instead destroyed a bridge further south and ambushed the Russian armored column, delaying the Russians about a day, but it wasn’t enough. All were lost, but they destroyed a lot of Russian hardware. In this alternate history scenario, a group of Georgian special forces operators attempt to hold back the Russians as long as possible.
