d100 Highway Murder Menaces & Moon Mission Madness

Today started team on astronaut training and sent to moon by the Lunar corporation (many companies, governments and the Vatican). Sister Uriel, The mutie and the Sheriff with tag along therapist arrived at the Tycho crater city. Mutant got into bar fights, Uriel investigated signs of evil and sherrif looked up missing astronauts and search protocols on the missing astronauts the party were sent to find. Most importantly the team mascot Dorothy the midget raptor dino pet of the sheriff looked adorable in her space suit. The company suspected there was a extra terrestrial intelligence directing the zombis on Earth. Team were worlds foremost zombie hunters and expert death racers were selected (not the cyber psychos). Aparently the lunar comunity expected party to put on moons first death race. So they left the pristine white Tycho City and went to their next base for the alien hunt, a mining town who had flattened a square kilometre of the moon for the deathrace. Uriel refused as did sheriff - they only wanted to kill undead. Base was a shabby industrial dirty hell hole. Commander explained death race was a cover  and if they would put on a demo show vs automated rigs the public would be sated and forget about them. Also they would get the chance to arm and armour moon vehicles for their search after the moon murder motor sports.

Uriel fitted a moon truck with powered sawblades on a ram plate with cone rifles and a turret with a industrial rivet bolt gun. The therapist would act as her gunner. Mutant got a truck with ram plates. Both got rocket boosters. Sheriff got a buggy with bolt gun and three cone rifles. Military arms were supposed to be banned. They did get recoiless ingrams, gyrojet guns and cone rifles as personal arms. The deathmatch let the team destroy the three enemy construction tracked vehichles and the audience loved it. Karumi the ninja girls arived from earth to join team and while base celebrating they broke into Seabourne foundation office and discovered deepone dna, drugs and occult secrets. Party next got ready to go looking for missing astronauts and find the alien intelligences relay beacon where the attack on Earth was directed from. All look keen on building new vehicles when back on Earth with big fat paychecks.

Anyway here are more encounters for the outback. These are more direct threats not just hazards or obstacles or curiosities. These things are out to mess you up.

Babylon BRP: How To Burn a City

Very behind on my blog posts on this game sorry. This is about 4 games summary.

Party have moved into mode of being Nobles and directly helping the Empire. Game moving to climax of war and heroes learning arts of summoning and enchantment. Climax coming soon.

So the band of heroes granted 4 chariots and 60 medium armoured veteran auxiliaries (with spears, wicker shields, archers, javelins). They departed Babylon to bring Sumeria properly under control and prepare for war on Elam.

Party nominated to punish the city of Kartullu and the heretical Dagon cult in that degenerate town. Faced large but backward army of Kartullu but hero led force smashed them with leaders jumping in canals to escape. Began siege around city and could hear them chanting. So heroes sneaked up to a poorly manned wall by boat and entered the city by stealth. Wathched the great ceremony on crumbling ziggarut where king and priests were trying to use peoples faith to call Liogor to their cause. Kull the Champion of Marduk used hid command dragon spell to make Liogor unwilling to manifest physically. Ariana called on the power of  Adad and struck the holy leaders and king with a thunderbolt from heaven. Other fired arrows and helped finish city leaders. They fled getting a chance to damage the gate house of city. Mob panicked and heroes fled and escaped by boat through the deep one filled canals.

Army poured into the panicked town battering down the weakened gate and torching the city. Well into the night they continued killing any tainted by evil fish men and cultists. Stacked up pyramids of severed heads and Toth was busy decapitating the unclean until dawn. Some of the lesser tainted were castrated and sent to be slaves in worst jobs possible. Others were sold into slavery and distributed as war booty.

The next recalcitrant non-tax paying city was more cooperative and managed to negociate peace and payment. Spent some time in court of king working him, killing cultists in court and singling out those against empire. Toth invented a new punishment where witches were thrown from a high building into a burning pit. King was displeased by arrival of a Babylonian army expecting to be barracked but he accepted his lot. Being on border of Babylon and Elam was always bound to be trouble.

Party had time to rest and atend families. Arian had given birth to hideous centaur baby and kept it in a tower in her mansion courtyard hidden from everyone including her husband. His family were increasingly displeased by her. Most of party are priests and champions or apprentice sorrcerers now.

Got to spend more time in court and Ariana began affair with a prince who arranged to have her husband sent to front lines and killed. They were married and her ex Assyrian kin were outraged. Toth was made governor of a small city and appointed his friends in various positions. Weeded out cultists and helped raided armed force for attack on Elam. Party helped plan campaign with Princes of Babylon after squeezing as many troops as they could from city including militia, cult troops and offering Kassite barbarians and Gutians land to get lots of irregular troops.

A large Gutian force led by Kull and their king harassed the Elamite holy sanctuary city drawing away troops. From South army drew out Main Elamite army by appearing weaker than they really were. Meanwhile the heroes led their force to attack Susa the capitol. Managed to drive defenders into the city then Ariana used her prayes to Adad the weather god to destroy the gates. MAnaged to look the city quickly and take many Sumerian relics long held by Elam then fled before Elamites could rally their forces. While not able to hold the Elamite cities they had done a lot of damage. Party given talents of silver and some magic relics recovered and many cities of Sumeria grateful to have their statues of gods returned after decades in the dungeons of enemy gods.

Toth was made a king of his city as a reward and had a coronation celebration. Gutians took heavy losses and a band came to complain to Kull about this and he gave them gold to be his guard which they accepted. Their much diminished tribal king hated Kull even more.

After more rest time the Emperor asked them to travel on a diplomatic envoy to Haddadbad a city dedicated to Addad near the coast. The emperor wanted to get troops to the Mediterranean so they were to get support of Haddadbad or spy on their weaknesses. Got on well with the king and convinced him to support Babylon but he wanted no Babylonian garrisons in city and a fortune to bribe local Amorite kings to support invasion of the Mediteranean coast including territory of Tyre and Sidon. Were many cultists about also - Tiamat cult following the Leviathan form were thriving in Phonecean  lands. Killed some Asag cultists and went into mountains to harrass cult to find the mythical gaint Humbaba was guarding the forests, cutting off the supply of cedar to the civilized cults of the world.

Shamash the sun god sent the party seven magic rocks, each would diminish one of the giants defensive auras. Managed to destroy his auras from afar with sling stones and down him by cutting his legs. Once down they killed the intestine faced giant who broke down into maggots and rotten muck that began to sprout trees. Pleased the heroes went to the village of his cult to finish them off...

Otherworldy Relics pt 2 Unearthly Powers


While im not online as much as i should - have written lots of tables for my roadwar game on my notebook inspired by con sessions. Sorry not posting much - lots of work, flu and arthritis slowing me down. Have got lots of nice toys and books and comics. Cthulhu wars and red and pleasant land. Moon Knight comics. More 1/72 minis.

Also i thought about my 1918 weird war one setting idea more - too many ww2 games out there - im thinking ww1 with martian tripods, undead germans  (like in sucker punch) - between steam and deco punk - feature flying aces, secret society wars, mystery men, land ironclads, aerial dreadnaughts and of course cthulhu (the chocolate coating of game genres = bums on seats) - a dawn patrol based game for next con (3 sessions) and tsr marvel: masters of evil vs avengers, (3 sessions) - i will go to zine fair instead other days I can make $300 selling zines instead of working for free.

At con learned a lot about my organisation-interfacing skills and need work with con bit better. I am way too used to charging money and bad rockstar antics from being a artist and entertainer for 20 years. Im still shy at awards and con I feel compared to my other arenas I feel professionally authoritative with. I guess there are a whole bunch of gamer ego and argument styles i can be less patient for now. Twenty nine years of reading history, pre modern poetry, philosophy and the classics makes me less of a fanboy than i was at 16. My enthusiasm and faith for corporate pop has waned. I dont trust companies top monetise my dreams as product. I have more hope on G+ and blogger community than most brands. I did have some pleasant arguments. I am far better at rhetoric than logic and probably feel a need to be "nicer" among gamer peers and nerd culture than say politics. One player said I am a horrible human being for my cthulhu death race game which i took as a compliment. I will use big classroom white boards better next time as they enhanced game play with lists of npc, initiative order, etc.


So here is part two listing of unearthly powers for relics.

I'm considering the items have alignment restrictions with one part of alignment in common to use mundane powers and two parts of alignment in common to use unearthly powers. Possibly also need  approval of some being (monster, god, queen) might be required or Name level status.

Items are typically linked to the god or elf king or elemental ruler. They might disprove of user and punish them with minions or steal your lover or something more personal. They might also send rewards or a message or a vision.

Other world entities may be offended at abuse of item and may try to reclaim or kill user

You might be nice and declare that empathic light shedding +1 door detecting swords might actually be a otherworldly relic and declare it activated and more powers appear. Seems a bit sad to retire old magic weapons when they add to character. This class of item can be good to make tings to suit a character. Heirloom campaign where each starts with one item and it grows with the wielder would be fun.

Just to note most effects activate when item used which might require you say items name "In the power of...". Intelligent items might set off powers and effects. DM might set off just for narrative driving reasons.

Many effects suit occasional use with activation or actually succeeding at a task

Otherworldy Relics pt 1

Ive last 2 years gone from being bedridden 16 hours a day to currently having 3 jobs for 36 hours a week. A temporary promotion and nice words from boss ay moment.  Have 3 art gigs this fortnight and scrounging a deposit a studio. Next weekend is a con im running 3 games - space Cthulhu (need to make character sheets), road war game (characters and car sheets and vehicle hit locations) and tsr marvel fall of the mutants (Print out lots of character sheets and this time bring several copies of the one table needed in game). So some entries on that after the weekend art gigs over.

I wrote a catalog-zine essay for Anything goes sticker and paste up exhibit. Was in show and helped out show a bit. Was good fun show with great new and old talent. Good rehearsal for huge PASTE MODERNISM no.4 show this year.

I have 2 week holiday season work coming up instead of term programs I teach. I will try to do a magic item and treasure compilation from this blog during that time.

So his is another type of magic thingy.

I'm kinda mean with magic items in my Exiles settings and all the weird curses has players wary to test stuff in the field with one identify per property not enough info to test on the fly. But I do like items that can grow with a character.This is another type.

Basically the items have two power settings one mundane and other unearthly. When you find most items they are in mundane state with one roll on the d100 Mundane Effects and d100 Mundane powers. They have remained hidden, depowered and lost to their origin plane. When mundane property used or in the presence of cross planar activity like a monster or gate or portal or god the items mundane effect may activate.

When origin plane crossed, or in a gate and a period after or in presence of certain planar beings the weapon will reveal it's d100 Unearthly Effect and Unearthly Powers when in use and possibly when gates, planes or certain beings near. When a character reaches name level noble status of the objects unearthly and mundane abilities are usable while the name rank character wields it.

Some affects might suit a certain alignment so feel free to re roll. Possibly a negative effect could be removed by some deed or feat. Negative effect could be a taint from mortal world or a divine being. Instead of rolling on unearthly effects you could increase a mundane effect to a greater extent.

Part of the point is you get items that grow with you and are intriguing enough to generate plot.

the Items should have some personality, a name and a striking appearance.

The Items history should be unveiled level by level and as new abilities are exposed. (Why not play magic items dependent on living pawns and their level for Item to fulfill destiny).

Instead of getting new items, these items will get new abilities and effect and triggers as wielder grows in power. By name level at least one greater powers should be always on.

These items are jealous so only one each.

Typical Lv Features
(This is a yardstick, DM could introduce a one off power, or add due to in play events like uncovering item history. This might even be a guide for character as item game. Work your mortal to near god status then reveal you true status as the puppet master and you are claimed by the gods). Make you own version or improvise on fly for your campaign.
