It’s all or nothing in this single-session adventure.

Sucrose Park Finale

Two weeks ago, I ran Sucrose Park for a couple friends in Chicago.  Due to a sudden and unexpected time constraint, we had to turn this into a two-session game.  I didn’t have my recording equipment (pronounced “webcam”), but it was pretty sweet, so I brought my mic to record the final session.

This session includes the Brain Trust Dungeon Crawl and Robbie Drake, both of which were not seen in RPPR’s playtest.  I believe the entire scenario played for around 6 or 7 hours across both sessions.

Rock Band Zombie Apocalypse

Congrats!  You’ve booked your first gig at a local Chicago bar!  You start rocking faces, but after a brief power outage, you see a couple of drunks shamble on in.  First a few, then a few more and. . . are they eating your fans?  Time to strap on your axe, pull on your shiny spandex pants, and show the undead what it means to be a rock star.

The Faculty Party

The Miskatonic University English Department is holding their annual Halloween party, and you have been cordially invited. The English Dept party is unlike the kind of party found at the local speakeasy; their party is a series of dramatic readings covering some of the greatest authors of horror fiction. The party-goers meet in a smoke-filled room and debate the authors over snacks, coffee, English and Indian tea.

Conversations and smoke float through the air as the faculty and guests are having a good time, everyone except Prof. Janice Moor. Prof. Moor teaches French Romantic Lit and has been in a blue mood for several weeks now. Her friends and coworkers had hoped that the party would help cheer her up, but no amount of joy has succeeded in lifting her out of her dark depression. Everyone secretly wonders what is bothering her.
