In tonight's game the PC's got themselves in way over their collective heads, the royal family they were staying with were kidnapped! The high rise that the PC's were staying in was invaded tonight after a new weird science dimensional portal device was unveiled! The party's bard went to check on Samantha Turck after her almost death & poisoning.
A sky ship landed on the roof pad with various mine consortium exacutives & mine heads from the outer edges of the solar system. The deep exploration & elemental planar mines had yielded a new type of portable gate device aboard the sky ship. Its application for new avenues of exploitable mining opportunities was about to be discussed when something or someone interrupted the meeting. Time went funny & the elevators weren't working properly.
The adventurers grabbed Samantha Turck & made a hasty retreat to the roof of their own sky ship. Then they encountered a strange shape changing ooze monster & they were lucky to escape with their lives! One of the PC's henchmen was able to buy the party some time to escape.
Finally the PC's made it past the roof & their own sky ship. They boarded, got skyward, & locked & loaded the guns! What they don't know is that a Visitor saucer is hot pursuit of them!
Will the PC's survive their ordeal! And why are they being pursued by the Visitors?! What strange alien agenda do these alien beings from beyond the stars have for a small child? These and other questions will be answered in next week's game as the players head for the wild & woolly wastelands of New Jersey! There in the wastelands
warbots battle amidst ruined starships & still active Martian war walkers!
Everything in tonight's game was accessed from the Barbarian Conquerors of Kanahu handbook for Adventurer, Conqueror, King retroclone rpg sytem.
Technically I'm working on integrating a bunch of OSR & old school D&D elements from original Dungeons & Dragons as well as Astonishing Swordsmen & Sorcerers of Hyperborea second edition. The pulp elements from Clark Ashton Smith Zothique series of stories has already been cropping up in the background of this game campaign but its time to really move them forward along with a good dash of H.G. Wells for good measure.
