In the same vein, what would more people want to see? I have three ideas running around...

1) Grim Tales System: "Arkham Squad: Try the Chicken"

2) Mutants and Masterminds System: "Mutants and Gamma-Minds: Gamma World"

3) Savage Worlds: "Treasure of the Land Time Forgot"

I really enjoyed the last Arkham Tales jaunt! But I also love two-fisted pulpy action...

Honestly, Henry, I don't think you could go wrong with any of those.

Here are some Savage Worlds scenarios I am considering for NC GameDay:

2) RunePunk: The heroes are asked to locate a friend (love interest?) in the district of GreyMesa. RunePunk is a megacity ripped from time and space and features races such as rat-men, ghostlike humans, half-demons and steampunk cyborgs. Think Shadowrun meets Elric.


This sounds intriguing to me...

I have one slot open, Jon. You know you want it!

Shades of the Sith

It has been a sixty years since the Jedi Civil War. Revan and the Jedi Exile, Merin never returned from their journey into the Unknown Regions. The Jedi Master Atton lies on his deathbed within the remains of the Jedi Academy on Dantooine and he calls out to the galaxy for help. The call is only heard by a select few.

On Dantooine, Atton relates his vision, "A time will come when the light of civilization will be threatened by the darkness beyond, a time when the Jedi have been corrupted utterly by the Dark Side. You must find find Revan and Merin in the Unknown Regions and prepare a candle to be lit in the darkness to come. The Ebon Hawk is yours. TM-34 will take you to a place where you may begin your journey."

Soon after, Atton Rand, Jedi Master, becomes one with the force.

While I've never played Godlike, Feng Shui is always a crowd-pleaser. :) You may well have more takers for it.

In the same vein, what would more people want to see? I have three ideas running around...

1) Grim Tales System: "Arkham Squad: Try the Chicken"
--Team members have been dispatched to the Sacramento CA area to handle an outbreak of cannibalism and possible Paranatural corruption of humanity. Will they be the saviors -- or just savory? 6th level, 20 system base, Pre-gens provided.

2) Mutants and Masterminds System: "Mutants and Gamma-Minds: Gamma World"
--An idea I've had before is taking the Four-color basis of M&M and recreating The Wild and Wahoo of Gamma World in its system! Your village is dying, and needs a new food source badly! Can you brave the great FoodBank of the Ancients and bring back salvation? PL 7 characters, pre-gens provided.

3) Savage Worlds: "Treasure of the Land Time Forgot"
--Using the Savage World rules, you play a two-fisted hero of pulp yarns, struggling to find your way home after a science experiment gone terribly wrong! But can you take the opportunity to do some good for the beaten and downtrodden, and maybe bring home the gold, too? Seasoned Characters, pre-gens provided.


The rules for each of these are either familiar to most people, or are easily taught in a half-hour or less. Anyone have an interest in any one of these?

I actually have interest in all of these. Savage Worlds is my system of choice, but Grim Tales meets my d20 Modern needs and I'm always drawn to post-apocalyptic scenarios as well. All of these sound good!

I think I will run Low Life Saturday morning, but also bring the stuff for RunePunk in case we have a GM shortage for Saturday afternoon.

I'm definitely interested in the Savage Worlds action, and morning slot works for me. :D

I will be running the Arkham Squad/Grim Tales game, and I'm slotted for Saturday Afternoon when it gets approved.

And I will be sitting at your table, rolling horror checks! Hopefully. If I can actually remember to sign up when the time comes.

I'll get you up and approved this afternoon when I get back from my errands. I'll also finally put up MY game. :eek:

Due to the holiday-money-crunch, Kennon and I won't be able to make the January gameday. :( You'll be seeing us in April, though!

I'm hoping to make the April event as well (January is out, unfortunately). And as a sort of preview I'm looking to run a Hollow Earth Expedition game titled "Reign of the Radar Men." For those in the know, I ran this at the last DC Gameday.

Sekeetta and I are interested in this. If there is a sentient snack cake she'd like that. I'm definitely looking forward to what else might be available.

We're also interested in this one. Sounds like horror would be to our taste for the afternoon. :p

Low Life characters

I finally got off my own sorry posterior and submitted my Savage Worlds Low Life game, Race Against Slime. If you have questions, please let me know.

Here is a list of available pre-gens. I usually will whip up 10 characters, 6 male and 4 female, to give a variety to pick from. For the adventure I will be using figure flats along with a few special miniatures.


Smyrna Smelf
Smyrna is a lady Smelf dedicated to defeating her foe, the hated Horcs. Smyrna has actually paid clams to having a sword, bow, and dagger carefully crafted like old weapons she’s been told that were used by the Hoomanrace. She’s a skilled warrior that can hold her own.

Tenna
Tenna is a lady Croach Jeezle Freak. A dedicated holy roller, she’s dedicated her life to helping others and spreading the good news of Jelvis. Tenna has taken a vow of poverty and has been afraid of hair bares since her father used to scare her with bedtime stories.

Hoota Loud
Hoota is a lady Bodul taletalker. She’s quite a looker, with her four eyes (but poor eyesight) and big bouncy behind and chest. Hoota has many tales that have been passed down throughout the ages, and she also has no qualms about skewering some jerk that’s giving her unwanted attention.

Blip
Poor Blip is a female Oofo dropped off on Oith as part of an extraterrestrial gag. She is a practicing dementalist in search of adventure and hopefully a way home. Blip has been on Oith for so long she is starting to think she resembles a member of the Hoomanrace.

Smuzzle Smelf
Smuzzle Smelf is a male Smelf who is an accomplished smellcaster. He’d like the opportunity to smite some Horcs as well as find more smellcasting reeks. Small and ugly, he struggles to fit in and be noticed on Mutha Oith.

Frug Smash-em-all
Frug is a male Bodul hoink. That means he can arrest perpetrators and bring them to justice. He wields a battle axe made from double-edged razor blades and armor made from poker chips. Right now Frug is suffering from a string of bad luck.

Trasher Evilstomp
Trasher is a male Pile warrior. He’s a little slow, but there’s no doubt he swings a vicious meat tenderizer made of stainless steel. Trasher believes himself to be a hero, and can’t wait for the day when he meets a contaminator to exact some revenge.

Felinious Birdmonk
Felinious is a male Tizn’t. He is an odd cross of animals, with a cougar’s head, a monkey’s tale and bird legs. Felinious is a skilled hocus poker, poking wherever his travels may take him.

Spunj Untasty
Spunj is a male Cremefillian in search of treasure. Spunj wields a flail made of chains with lugnuts on the end of the chains. He’s a big boy; Spunj descended from a long line of chocolate cupcakes. A former slave, Spunj knows very little of Oith but is ready to travel.

Slimz Laylow
Slimz is a male Werm booty hunter. Poor Slimz can’t add a lick and his demeanor can be less than rosy. Slimz’ prize possession is an Xacto knife he lifted from a Horc last week. He didn’t kill the Horc; he stole the Xacto knife from the Horc while he was asleep. Slimz is now ready to move up to getting paid.

This game looks intensely fun. I think I want to play it. Only it hasn't been submitted at the site as near as I can tell. If you need help with this process, Pepster, let me know.

Thanks, Rel, for letting me know. I submitted this last night late and wasn't sure if it went through. I'll give it another shot shortly. I'll let you know if I need help.

*turning lurk mode off*

ahem

Hi folks. Heard a nasty rumor that there is a lack of DM/GMs for this upcoming Game Day. Last I looked, the trouble we had was too many games and too few players. Could anyone dispel this nasty little gremlin or is there really a lack of games for the January Game Day?

Well, until yesterday, we had one game listed. We have several more games now. Maybe you should wait and see what happens with reg. If most games fill up, then we probably need more.

OK Belen, I'll wait some more. Last time I ran a game, I ran into a player shortfall. So as long as there are enough games running for the folks that are going then Game Day should be golden.
