Spider and Me Are Mates

Played in a small one-shot tonight ran by Ian F. White that was based in a version of the Mad Max apocalyptic future; had great fun despite numerous technical problems at my end (halfway through my powerline adaptors lost their link to each other so I lost connection for a while and had to get on wirelessly which isn’t ideal).

The game featured (as befits a Mad Max style game) an odd assortment of characters:

  • Squirrel (played by Chris Wilhelm): A violent bastard for hire, older brother of Rat and our driver who owned a machete that was actually taken from the Thunderdome that was his prize (and blood-splattered) possession.
  • Pig (played by John Aubrey Moore): An information dealer who may not be much in a fight but had keen eyes and an ability to spot an enemys weaknesses.
  • Rat (played by Ian Christiansen): A curious kid who was always getting into trouble but could be vicious if he was backed into a corner.
  • Sebastian Crow (played by myself): An ex-priest who had lost his faith during the apocalypse and now wandered the deserts looking for a sign that God had not deserted the world.

The game was a fairly simple scenario where our motley band of people were supposed to meet up with our contact Spider only to find out that he’d been kidnapped by a local gang trying to force him to tell them where the gasoline stores he’d discovered were located; we then rode in like bad-asses to rescue him. Even though the game was only a couple of scenes long it was good fun and I believe demonstrated how dramatic Fate combat can be when you have a group of players who are up for just throwing themselves into the spirit of the game.

Very enjoyable and I hope to game with the people again soon.
