I have decided to run 4 games on each day of the convention this year. Only three of them will be in keeping with the End of Days Them of the convention. One of them is something I have been wanting to do for a long time as kind of a one shot adventure. It is based of the Knights of The Dinner Table comic strip and will keep in fashion with the silly and stupid antics of the comic strip. As well as wild and unconventional home made monsters and loot. The game is going to be a High Powered game, starting at level 5 with numerous chances to level as the game progresses. Treasure and magic items will be given out like candy for no reason. As well as magical items that are high powered but silly. Like a Vorpal Longsword +5 with Holy, Returning and Bane: Chipmunks. The Arch Mage's ring of "Oh my god your stepping in quicksand, make a reflex check", and maybe a few holy hand grenades of Antiock. So with that being said I hope you will enjoy my games and I can't wait to see you at the convention. ThursdayGame Name: The Red Mist
System: Warhammer 2nd edition
Because of the high powered and fast nature of this session only veteran warhammer players should play. Characters will be in their 3rd careers and this campaign is designed to be brutal and fast paced. Understanding of the system is essential to enjoying this session.
100 years ago.....
For several centuries, Archaon quested for the "Six treasures of Chaos". According to the myths of Chaos worshippers, the one who manages to gain all of them will bring about the final triumph of Chaos. He finally managed to gain the six treasures in the year 2521 IC. At the same time, the Chaos Warlord Surtha Lenk attacked Kislev and pushed through to the Empire, sacking the Ostland capital of Wolfenburg before being crushed by Imperial reinforcements.
Your characters adventured together 10 years ago before parting ways to achieve your various personal, and professional goals. Before that time you had all been together for 24 years adventuring and working as a team. Now you have come together in the city of Middenheim to the funeral of your oldest and dearest friend, Oran Bellmont. Oran was a Master Wizard in the College of Middenheim. He tough Life magic there and it was he who first introduced all of you. While attending his funeral in miday, a strange red mist smelling of copper comes rolling through town and blackens out the sky. Your characters pass out and when they awaken they find that they have been transported to a strang and grotesque land, of forbiding mysteries and dangerous denizens. Can you survive in the red mist? FridayGame Name: STAR WARS "The Jedi Purge"
System: Star Wars West End Revised edition
None, anyone who wants to play can play, up to a max of 7 people.
It has been 5 years since the fall of the republic and the rise of Emperor Palpatine. The rise of Lord Vader has now begun. The galaxy is held in a state of Imperial terror and no one is safe from the ever watching eyes of Stormtroopers. Jedi have been branded as wanted criminals, held responsible for the fall of the Republic. It is because of this that a small group has formed the Rebel Alliance on both a Political front and Tactical front. This is the time of the “Jedi Purge”. Senator Bail Organa is leading a secret underground resistance with the help of a Jedi Master who was presumed dead, one Mace Windu. Most Jedi have gone into hiding and given up their ways of using the force, in order to survive. Planets are racing to maintain either their independence within the outer rim the only area that is not under Imperial Control. Or begging for Imperial protection and doing the best they can to remain in the good graces of the Empire.
Slavery is running rampant withing the confines of Imperial Law. The planet Kashyyk, is the latest to fall to the Empire. A crime lord by the name of “Jabba the Hutt” has built a compound on Tattooiene and along with the Hutt council on Nar Shadda have opened up a criminal smuggling line. For reasons unknown, it is protected under Imperial Sovereignty. A Bounty Hunter named Bobba Fett, has become a well known name throughout the galaxy, as being one of the top Imperial Bounty Hunters. Your characters are members of Mace Windu's elite strike force special ops unit, called Twin Sabers. Your function is to work as a Black Ops unit, using advance weaponry and tactics to strike at key focal points, thereby weakening the Empire. It is the Rebel's hope that you will lead the charge and bring in more support for their cause. With each mission you bring strength to the Republic, and get one step closer to defeating the Empire. SaturdayGame Name: Attack Of The Killer Gazebo & Return of "Red" Gurdy Pickens the "Bag Wars" Champion.
System: Dungeons and Dragons 3.5
: A sense of humor and the ability to roll a d20. This game is based off of the comic strip called Knights of the Dinner Table by Kenzer and company. While the group in the comic strip was playing Hackmaster primarly, I am going to be running this as a light hearted comedy game of D&D.
You characters are going to be classic adventures with a rather old school feel to them. I will be making a total of ten character. A male and female of the following classes; Cleric, Fighter, Paladin, Rogue, Sorceror. All starting at level 5 in a high powered, light hearted filled event. Knowledge of KoDT is not neccessary to play the game but you will enjoy it more if you have. I will be incorporating silly elements and fun quests into the game. Like killer attacking Gazebos, beggers with advanced degrees in unarmed combat and magic broken bottles with vorpal capabilities. This not a SERIOUS campaign. All of your characters will have the following alignment, Chaotic-Stupid (CS). Which means you can do whatever you want in the game and get rewarded for it, with large amounts of xp and gold. I will even level you in game if you get that much XP I don't care. This game is to focus on players who want to have their characters rob, loot, steal, kill and maim all to get ahead in the game. Yes there will be plenty of deaths hence why I will be having back up character sheets. Heck if you die you can erase the name on your sheet and play the same character over again. The purpose of this game is to laugh, roll dice and have a good time. I encourage players to come up with stupid and ridicilous ideas to simple easy problems. The dumber and funnier your actions are the more experience points you get awarded. SundayGame Name: Zombies in Outer Space
System: All the Flesh Must be Eaten
None, anyone can play if they want. This game will feature elements based off the Aliens trilogy and the popular video game Dead Space. But is compromised of my own home brewed universe which in your characters are elite members of a Rescue team sent to a planet. Once you get to the planet you realize everything on the planet is dead and it is devoid of technology.
The National Security Act of 2101 established the Colonial Marines structures as four combat divisions and four aerospace wings, plus the support services organic to these formations. At present the Colonial Marine Corps strength stands at 165,000 Marines. Reserve manpower stands at around 50,000, comprising a fifth division ande aerospace wing. Your characters are part of the Emergency Response Team (ERT). You have been called out from Vega 6 Training base, to head to an unknown planet, classified J9QQ and rescue a downed space yacht named "Destiny". As well as rescue any and all survivors. Your team has all recently graduated the CMC academy on Earth and this mission sounds like a cakewalk.
ERT teams are exclusive to the CMC. Their charter expands beyond the normal requirements for a basic marine corps. They are needed to meet the demands of the colonies they serve. This expands beyond the need to protect their borders. Often, the CMC is called in for rescue duty, usually because they have the fastest ships with the longest range. To combat these demands, the ERT was formed. They are sent in to rescue people from a variety of conditions.
