Characters and handouts for BrigadeCon 2015 Game

As some of you may be aware, I’m running a couple of games for #BrigadeCon2015; one of these games is a Fate Accelerated game set in Brian Engard’s Wild Blue campaign world, a sort of weird-fantasy western with superpowers thrown in for good measure.

BrigadeCon 2015

 

To those of you who aren’t aware BrigadeCon is an online tabletop RPG convention that was started last year by the Youtube RPG Brigade and has been continued this year by a talented team of organisers. You can find details on the convention by clicking on the link below:

Basically the Con is 24 hours of online gaming (normally using Google Hangouts), panels and giveaways; last year was great fun with people from different timezones getting together and gaming.

So what am I doing for Brigade Con 2015?

Well last year I ran a couple of panels for the convention whereas this year I’m going to be running two games, you can find details below:


 

The Thing from the Hillssun-birds-people-cartoon-girl-guns-smoke-west-hat-coat-glow-red-steel-2
(Fate Accelerated, Wild Blue Setting)
“Just a few generations ago, the people of what would be called the Blue Lands came in search of wealth and fleeing religious persecution. When they arrived, they found a land steeped in magic, valuable resources… and the Folk, inhuman and amazing magical beings. Unfortunately a war erupted for the Blue Lands, and the settlers won – pushing the Folk far to the west of this vast continent and establishing a kingdom in the Blue Lands.

The Blue Lands is now wealthy and wondrous, taking full advantage of the miracle mineral Cobalt, and the Skywood trees that grow lighter as they go older… even floating into the sky! But too, now are Powers: men and women born in the generations since arrival with gifts of superhuman talents and abilities unknown, and the numbers keep growing…

In order to negate potential dangers of Power abuse resulted in the creation of the Queen’s Wardens, the law-enforcement organization of Major Powers answering only to Queen Aurora V and no limit to their remit to defend the Blue Lands. With vengeful Folk, sky pirates, bandits, noble intrigues, monsters and more… get ready pardner.”

Word has reached the Wardens that something is killing the calves of Emerson Kleebergers herd in the ranching town of Edge Hill, threatening to stop the precious flow of food to Cobalt City; at his wits end Kleeburger has dispatched a message to the Queen begging her to send someone to investigate.

(NWOD werewolf using simplified rules system)

“There’s something wrong in your territory, there have been a rash of strange death, each victim dying with a rictus grin etched on their features; the deaths started when Bobos Circus of the Fantastic moved into the area, but strangely none of the mortal authorities seem to have made the connection, leaving it to the supernatural guardians of the small town of Strangehaven to track down and hunt the cause of this laughing plague.”

This game is a NWOD werewolf game where the players will portray members of the Uratha pack who claim the sleepy American town of Strangehaven as their territory; the game is for 3-4 players and uses a simplified version of the NWOD system more suited to one-offs, there will be a selection of pre-genned characters available as the pack finds themselves with a deadly mystery on their hands. Can they determine it’s cause and end the strange plague or will the small town die laughing?

[Con-RPG] Heading to Dragonmeet on 06/12/14

Myself, my wife and a friend of ours from Dark Cleo Productions are heading off to Dragonmeet at the end of the week, we were lucky enough to get tickets at the last minute thanks to our friends at Dark Cleo and i’m very much looking forward to going.

I have to admit to being a little apprehensive though, the last convention I went to was when a version of Gen Con was still being held here in the United Kingdom about a million years ago and i’ve not really had the time or the funds necessary to visit a lot of conventions since (although I do go to the small Beer & Pretzels convention held in our local town most years); having really enjoyed my experience at the online convention BrigadeCon 2014 (although I understand conventions online and in person are likely to be very different) i’m really looking forward to going to the convention. If anyone sees me there, feel free to come up and say hello, chat about RPGs, i’ll be taking my dictaphone with me and a video camera so hopefully i’ll be able to get some good footage and maybe even some interviews 🙂
