For PAX 2014 I was hoping to run a One Shot table-top RPG. I would likely run the scenario towards the end of Saturday. I plan to run one of these three One Shots:The Bad Man
- A monster has taken up residence in your room, one that won't leave no matter what you do. Of course, no one believes that this monster, this Bad Man, lives outside your window, in your closet, under your bed. Everyone says he's not real, that it's just your imagination. The way he looks at you with a deep, deep hunger… that's more than just your imagination.
The Bad Man is a Don’t Rest Your Head scenario about children facing and overcoming their very real, deadly Nightmare and take their first trip into the Mad City.
Don’t Rest Your Head is a simple independent RPG system, it places narrative power to the players and their characters.Harry Potter and the Handle of Janus
- You are stirred from the blackness of unconsciousness by a sudden burning pain in your scar. You find yourselves laying upon a stone floor, surrounded by a number of black robed figures, each wearing a macabre mask. You are not alone upon the stone floor… peculiarly, also rousing are familiar faces with lightning bolt shaped scars.
Harry Potter and the Handle of Janus is a scenario using the Strands of Fate about a number of Harrys swept up from their respective universes. They must fight and outwit their greatest enemy Voldemort in a foreign Hogwarts.
Strands of Fate is a cinematic role-playing system using fudge dice and Fate inspired mechanics. To suit the Potterverse scenario I have added rules regarding spell casting.Ego Hunter
- You wake up at the body bank back on Mars but you should have been merged back into your original ego after your last assignment. In the waiting room there are other forks of your original ego. You don’t have much time for introductions when a med-tech tells shows you a vid left from Achjima the original, looks like she’s got a mission for us.
Ego Hunter is a convention scenario for Eclipse Phase. It is unique in that most (possibly all) of the player characters are forks of the same person who work together to track down their original (alpha) self.
Eclipse Phase is a RPG of post-apocalyptic transhuman conspiracy and horror. It utilises a revised version of Chaosium’s BRP using d100.
If anyone is interested just let me know and which of the scenarios you would be interested in. I will nut out the details once it gets closer to PAX.
Would you like me to set aside a table for this game in our RPG area? If you can commit to a time, we can save you a table. (We could even book in players for you, if you like).
I also found out last year that people didn't want to set anything in stone before the schedule came out. Consequently, I don't really have a definite time either, just a vague sometime in the afternoon/evening.
If you have players interested, I've gotten interest in the Harry Potter and Bad Man scenarios. The Bad Man scenario is probably more suited for people with little RPGing experience, only needing to bring creativity to the table.
I've never used the Fate rules for Eclipse Phase only the original d100 stuff.
I don't know what I can commit to.
Indeed it can - check your messages Ice
@AdultCrash I believe @Nyogtha is planning to run some Eclipse Phase.
