I'm still curious about the strips of "something" pinned to the overturned, bloodsoaked mattress in the doorway of the master bedroom.

Not a chance, bud. I need it to dilute my five or six prozac and two tramadol per day "holistic wellness" cocktail.

Hey, no sweat. The one thing I learned from Jo is never mess with another person's meds.

Bah. That's pure Disney compared to what's coming next.

You mean everyone's parents are tragically dead, everyone but the hero is freakishly and cartoonisly deformed and the animals all talk to you?

Cool.

Well after reading this story hour, I went out and bought the Dark Matter campaign book, D20 MOdern and D20 Modern Menace, all off ebay or amazon, so it wasnt too bad. Then I went to work trying to hammer a workable system, something I've never done, and being that I'm marreid w/ 2 children and work an extremely stressful job, took a little work. Using this story hour as a guide and my own intuition, i got it together. 4 players have agreed to play, including the one hard to find female. Took some convincing.

So I live in miami, and today a rather wet storm is descending, and an old D&D friend who I bounce ideas off, told me I should make Exit 23 a liitle bit more my own. Hmmmm.

The storm came out of nowhere, you had been lounging om the beach in Miami, getting ready for the MTV video awards, when the hotel management was told they had to evacuate the hotel. WT..,. Man, you had passes to Puff Diddy's pool parties and everything. Tara Reed was gonna be at Crowbar and so were you. This totally sucks. An Aunt lives in Naples, so you decide to hop in your rental car and drive across the state to visit her. Most people were taking Alligator Alley, but you knew of an older road, Tamiami Trail. An old 1 lane road, that conneceted Miami to Naples before the new highways were built. The road is desolate and unkept, but it'll be empty, and thats what you wanted..,

The rain came so hard and fast, it was almost of biblical proportions. You could barely see the road doing 5 miles an hour. Well, at least there were no other cars to worry about. Watch out, an 18 wheeler almost blows you off the road. He had to be doing 60. How the hell could he see where he was driving? You creep on, afraid to go any faster, because you can barely see the road, and there are no guardrails to stop you from going into the swamp here abouts. You pass by a billboard advertising the last truckstop for the next 100 miles. Micosoukee Village Gas Station. 3 miles to go. Stop and fill up. See wally the gator. The home of the original Fan swamp boat.

All of a sudden, the car stalls out. Whats going on. You open the door and water pours into the car. The swamp has risen up and swallowed the road. The engine is half underwater. Crap. You grab your cellphone and back pack and start slogging through the water towards the truck stop. Wind and rain whip your face. Something large splashes behind you. What the heck was that..,


Yah, I think that'll work just fine. Thanks for the inspiration jonrog. ress

well, seeing as I have time off now, I may finally post the outline/stats (in my homebrew, but it''s idiot-easy) for night of the cattle mutilators, gone missing and dark canada.

Digging the true D20 system by the way. I'd be finished if I could just get FX to work properly...

Jo finished. "It's a scream, followed by some gunshots and more screaming, then like a gurgle, and dry snapping sounds." Andy stared at her. "Seriously, we're going to look at a skinned family. Lighten up."

I love these people.
 

Took some time to read through this storyhour (having to work and all) and several things I noticed along the way:
1) John, you are one sick puppy, but I love it. :)
I don't have a favorite character, as I think all players and theire respective characters are awesome.
Seen the comments pointing to this SH in several places on EN World, but the calling-out by Spyscribe (I'm an avid reader of her SH as well) was the one that finally got me to come over. Should have done that way sooner.

2) Having seen all the references to "The Core" and convinced by John's writing of this SH there was nothing else to do for me but order it from Amazon right away.

3) I even get to see peple posting here that I know from the good old days of Baldur's Gate and the Back Room: "Here's to you, NiTessine, you old tea-elf."

4) Now I'm done reading this the other stories of Jonrog are next on my list of things-to-do.

5) I never saw or read about Dark*Matter before, but this really is terrific.

6) This story needs to be back on page 1.

7) Consider this to be a much-needed B U M P
 


Alright. Just finished reading Pulp Spycraft and I must say it's hilarious.
Now all I've got legt to read is Scarred Lands.

How about it John?
When can we expect to see an update.
You bad man, getting me hooked and now leaving me to wait for an update, just like the rest of the addicts out here on EN-World

Update now or I'll use True Resurrection to call back E.T. and send him after you to get himself a little snack by using that little device of his :D

Yay, more inspiration

I've been checking this forum every month or so for a while now and there is more. Me thinks there is a reason I couldn't forget about this story hour.

That's what my therapist says.
