Pinned down at the municipal airport by anti-amp thugs, we engage in a gun fight. There is propwash, gasoline, and people on fire. Meanwhile, Tom hides in the plane. He is NOT a fighter. But he CAN do something exciting that ISN’T a fighting thing.
Mike McConnell has now released the latest Nova Praxis book! Machinations is a GM tool for the FATE system.
Machinations expands upon the Nova Praxis setting, delving deeper into the Coalition and Houses while also introducing several new factions. Machinations also offers new gameplay options, campaign advice, campaign examples, and a ready to run introductory scenario. This GM’s companion is littered with plot hooks and inspiration for new and experienced Nova Praxis GMs.
As part of this expansion, Visionary has announcedDeadlands-focused partnerships with IDW Publishing, which will be publishing the first trade,Dead Man’s Hand, in March of 2015, and Tor Books, which will be publishing a line of prose novels coming later next year.
Dead Man’s Hand collects Deadlands one-shots published by Visionary and Image Comics, and features a stunning list of talent: David Gallaher, Steve Ellis, Jimmy Palmiotti, Justin Gray, Lee Moder, Ron Marz, Bart Sears, Jeff Mariotte, Brook Turner, and Michael Atiyeh. The comics were called “All-Star Westerns” by the media, and the full collection has been much anticipated.
We are back with the Amped Up game! The crew had been given Amps that “fixed” various problems they had. Everyone had woken up from the implant surgery to missing medical personnel and dead bodies. And THEN they were attacked by anti-amped bigots. They ventured outside of the clinic to MORE bigotry and ended up with one clue… Elysium.
So now you are caught up. In this episode, Tony looks up his cousin. Tom burgles and ends up with something fun. Fast Jack gets brutal, and we find out where Elysium is. And Joe tells us we crossed a line.
It’s our GenCon Special Interview episode. GenCOn 2014 was a great convention. We played some great games and some not so great. It was a fantastic time and I can’t wait for next year. Here is a collection of interviews from some fun booths in the Exhibitor’s Hall. And here are all the links….
This the game Jeff and Todd put together to run for Origins and GenCon this year. It’s a play test using incomplete rules and so it’s not our usual story game. But we thought you would like to listen an example of how to put together a short game for a convention. The game is based in the Nova Praxis setting in anticipation of the Savage World rules set. Part two will arrive on Saturday. If you are in Indianapolis at GenCon, look for us. On Saturday we will be wearing the red RooSackGamer logo shirts. Find us. We will be handing out dice.
