CORE Playtest – Ghost of a Chance, Part 1

In Seattle, four friends receive a mysterious letter that was lost in the mail. . . for over 50 years.  They bring the letter to its rightful owner, but their concern for the recipient’s mental health draws them into a chilling mystery with hints of the supernatural.

Perhaps they should be more concerned for their own safety.

This session is the first in a series of playtests for Lester Smith’s Core Role-Playing Game Rules.  For more information about the system, please visit corerpg.com.

D20 Modern – Blackhawk Down (Walking Dead)

A month after the zombie apocalypse started, some of us found ourselves fleeing Michigan for Ohio. Then it really got hairy.

My name was Frank Strazynski, though people who knew me called me Sarge. I worked with the DEA before as part of a secret squad that dealt with drug problems in a straightforward way: with a gun. When my partner, Sam “God” Everready had wanted to get back to Michigan to be with his family, I went with him. I had nothing to lose. We ended up at Hopesville, Mich., just before it hit the fan there. The two other members of our squad were a couple of Michigan National Guardsmen: Nate Parker, who’s nickname was, for some reason “Flamboyant Hat” and a medic that went only by the name “Doc.”

At CaesarCon 2014, a friend of mine (Steve) ran a D20 Modern game based on the Walking Dead television series. This game was played on March 28, 2014 and continues the adventures of Sgt. Strazynski. Other players included Chris, Xavier, and Matt.

D20 Modern – Walker: Texas Danger (Walking Dead)

Some terrible things happened just as the zombie apocalypse was starting. This is one of those stories.

Before the zombie apocalypse that essentially ended civilization, I had been a cop, essentially. My name was Frank Strazynski, though people who knew me called me Sarge. I worked with the DEA as part of a secret squad that dealt with drug problems in a straightforward way: with a gun. My fellow squad-members were Chester Brickhouse, our heavy weapons guy; Sam “God” Everready, a sniper; and Jed Caliber, our medic.

At CaesarCon 2013, a friend of mine (Steve) ran a D20 Modern game based on the Walking Dead television series. This game was played on March 23, 2013 and was a prequel to The Walking Dead, actually. Other players included Adam, Chris, and Kevin.

D20 Modern – The Walking Dead

The end of the world has come: the dead walk the earth and seek to take the living down into hell with them.

I was known as Shaggy McGuire in those end days, a washed out comic and pothead. I rode with a few others in our struggle for survival. There was Joey Lawrence, a former pawn shop owner, who rode with me. In the other car were Maize, a college co-ed; and Todd Schlachter, x-military. Finally, riding on a motorcycle (of all things) were Sam Jones, a factory worker; and Frank Edwards, who had been a cop.

At CaesarCon 2012, a friend of mine (Steve) ran a D20 Modern game based on The Walking Dead television series. This game was playing on March 17, 2012. Others playing the game included Scott, Angi, D.J., Rick, and Neal.

Base Raiders Episode 01 – Loot Bases. Live Better

In the poor, rundown city of Bucketsford, Wisconsin, the Mahatma Gandhi Cultural Center is about to be replaced by a Super Walmart. Since the stereotypical redneck town is more concerned about guns and the Packers, they don’t seem to care about losing a cultural center dedicated to .00025% of the population (Old Sam Hurley’s great-grandpa had an exciting night with an “escort” in India once).

Yet there are those that suspect a hidden truth beneath the cultural center. The player characters (a wealthy pair of Russian brothers with telepathic and old-school beatdown powers, a master con-artist driven by the almighty dollar, and a retired cop just trying to keep valuable base loot from falling into the wrong hands),  having heard rumors of the cultural center serving as a front for an old super-villain, must investigate the base and make off with the loot before Super Walmart is able to get their hands on the goods and make them available for insanely low prices.

If it were only that easy. There are many secrets that lurk in the base. . . and not all of them can be sold on the black market. And the people of Bucketsford may not appreciate visitors. . .

Southern-speaking Wisconsinites, surprising revelations, and layers of mystery await!
