On February 6th I ran my first ever superhero-styled game, as well as my first game using the recently improved Venture City superpower rules. You can watch the session here at Roll for Your Fate on YouTube. Here’s a recap:
I ran the first full session of my Magic Earth campaign on January 16th (check it out here). This session stars Dennis K. as Jacques Allard, a holy warrior from France recently recovered from a disastrous Crusade against the Fae, and Tim O. as Rosaleen Quinn, an occultist Irish Traveler with a demonic heritage. Jacques and Rosaleen know each other from a chance encounter: both had attempted to stop The Hands of Everlasting Darkness, a cult, from summoning a demon into the world. They stopped the cult and the summoning, apparently, but at a great cost of life.
Today’s recap is brought to us by Tim O.’s Sunday Fantastic Heroes & Witchery Sessions.
This was my second session with the group, third overall (if I am not mistaken), taking place in the city of Zhao Shu on the eve of the transition of power from one Emperor to another. Last session, the group launched their efforts to recover a magical tome that could heal Urnst (played by Anthony F.) of his withering affliction from the library of Fen Wu.
It’s been a little while hasn’t it!? There’s been travelling and holidays and wrestling with things that must be grappled into submission. I’m not here to talk about that though, I’m here to talk about all the games I’ve ran and played in since my last post. There’s quite a few, so let’s get started with this quick-fire round up:
Ghosts was the session of The Dresden Files RPG that I ran this year for BrigadeCon (Streak!). It was a great four hours with Rob D., Chris J., Lloyd T., and Michael W. and I was pleased with the session. Let’s sum it up:
I had the pleasure of finally playing with Chepe (also known as FaunTrodden on Youtuve) as well as John from Red Dice Diaries and Thashif (who I’ve had the pleasure of playing with before, but it was good to play with him again) for my first game of BrigadeCon 2015! Chepe ran a session of Edrigohr, a Native American-inspired Fantasy based on Fate Core. I was playing Ch’ni’wa, the Spider of First Town. John from RDD was playing as Ja’Sool, an eccentric inventor with knowledge of the Mire and Thashif was playing as Gri’tak, a warrior turned blacksmith that was too old for this business.
This is a recap for an excellent session of The Dresden Files RPG I ran on Saturday, October 3rd. A big thanks to my five players: Dennis K., Lloyd G., Lloyd T. Ian W., and Tim O. Each of you were awesome despite the occasional technical issues that tried to hobble our session. Special mention to Lloyd G. and Ian W. as this was the first time I had the privilege of playing with them and I look forward to many more.
There’s tons of noteworthy things to talk about regarding this session, so lets start with the recap of it:
