Monsters and Other Childish Things: Junkyard on the Edge of Forever

Spoiler alert?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.

  1. Game date approx August 13th 2012.

  2. Because I can

  3. Yes Ross, I DO read the AP descriptions.

  4. As do I, and I’m at 2:40:55 and have yet to hear Jason, Thad, or Caleb, and David isn’t even tagged a little bit! SHEESH

  5. We all know Ross cannot into tags

  6. Only Arron could have made this game and chosen this setting. Kudos Arron and keep’em coming.

  7. Yay!!! MaoCT, and Aaron is running it!!! Woot!

  8. Just got done listing. WOW! Great game, would love to here the gen con one, love the revised ideas at the end, great job Aaron.

  9. Letting a kid watch those old HK movies is pretty irresponsible. Kind of awesome though.

  10. Between this and the Legacy of NIMH game, Aaron seems to have the perversion/corruption of childhood memories down to an art. Kudos to you, my good sir.

    The image chosen for the AP really embodies this. I remember the first time I saw that picture, I welled up a little.

  11. well just to let you know, I downloaded this cos i first read the description… I was curios about Aaron’s development as a GM.

    Good stuff. Would have be annoying to be playing a kid and not a monster. So it was a good suggestion, though I’d hate to come up with a pre-shadowing scene the day before a genCon.

  12. This episode was a load of fun to listen to, on equal footing to the NIMH game in nostalgic greatness.

  13. Sorry for the necro, but I just got around to listening to this.
    My favorite part?

    “Actually, it would be an Iron Cross”
    “Alternate reality, shut up!”

    I had to pause for a while to laugh.

    Purely for future reference, an even better reply would have added “Besides, it would be a Balkenkreuz, so double shut up!”

    Keep up the great work guys. I may not be able to play as often as I would like, but you keep me in the groove with your recordings.

  14. This is the third time I have listened to this and whiz Aaron would print the damn notes so that I can run it with out having to do all the real work myself. 😀

    Ross is a demigod!

  15. In what pocket dimension does WISH get auto translated as WHIZ?

  16. @Thunderbelly At first I thought you were insinuating that Aaron was in fact a wizard. (Which may or may not be true)

    Also I agree that Aaron should release his notes or do up a ransom or something.
