Re: The Red Dawn Chronicles (The delays! Oh, the delays!)

Just a heads up, some of my group has real life/work commitments preventing us from getting together on November 6th. We are shooting for a November 20th game date. Until then, I present to you story time! Our session record keeper wrote this small fiction piece after the events of session 11 (The ...

Re: The Red Dawn Chronicles

Update 2 We are still getting together on November 6th, no change there. This will be our last session for the foreseeable future. One of my home group members (Ron, aka Miranda) will be moving from the Chicago suburbs to the Seattle suburbs in the spring. He was hoping to GM a game he's been workin...

Re: The Red Dawn Chronicles Delay in next post

Hi all,
Due to some scheduling snafu's, my group will next meet on November 6th, so the next update will likely be around November 10th or so.

Re: The Red Dawn Chronicles (session 13)

Sorry for the long delay. My player got me the recap this past Tuesday. It's been a busy week! We started with Bikrum navigating the narrow streets of (New) Pinebox. We parked outside a row of shops, and Asia and Miranda went to gather some information. Inquiring about Mr. Pan, they learned that he...

Re: The Red Dawn Chronicles (session 12)

In this session, they make it back to Castle Refuge, report in, and learn of some more news about the Splugorth and Vampires. The session opened with Mor'd-kai suggesting that we should have a plan on what to move onto once we reach the Castle. He asked the group what they preferred to do, commenti...

Re: The Red Dawn Chronicles (session 11)

This was a seed from one of the great people over on the Savage Rifts G+ group. The original idea kinda went from a nice side trek/getaway for my players. Then, as the scene unfolded, the player's apprehension kinda infected my original idea and a more horror themed session unfolded. Here's the lin...

Re: The Red Dawn Chronicles (session 10)

Missing this session were Evereth the Dragon's Player and Bikram the Cyber Knight's Player. Also, my daughter will more than likely have to step away for the school year as she is good enough a student to be placed in several honors classes for high school which means a lot more homework for her an...

Re: The Red Dawn Chronicles

Thanks! I have enough ideas and material to keep it going quite some time. But my group does suffer from RPG ADD. So it is possible this game may go on hold for an indefinite period as my group starts to want to try a new setting. We already have one person getting a FFG Star Wars game ready to run....

Re: The Red Dawn Chronicles (session 9)

NOTE: This session I tried using a modified dramatic task for the information gathering montage of the session. This was also my first ever attempt at actually running a dramatic task. As a result, it was not nearly as successful as I was hoping it would be. I think it bothered me more than my play...

Re: The Red Dawn Chronicles (session 8)

Note: This session was my worst one yet in my opinion. I felt like I did not bring enough to the table. Like I could have prepped better or just skipped trying out some new rules variant (see below) I came up with. Luckily, my players did not seem to notice just how off I was this past session. I g...

Re: The Red Dawn Chronicles (session 7)

We began the session discussing what we would head off to do. (Insert Mor'd-kai speech here) Bladey-blah-blah. Honor, people, let's save Castle Refuge. So that is what we decide to do. With a short field trip to a ley line so Miranda can try to communicate with the Castle and make sure we are needed...

Re: The Red Dawn Chronicles (session 6)

As the session began, Mor'd-kai cautiously suggested that everyone grab some weapons to bring with into our afternoon session for the circus. He really did not like the tent suppressing the magical abilities of the group, and wanted to be prepared in case something went amiss. Vibro knives were pass...

Re: The Red Dawn Chronicles (session 5)

This session involved no combat of any kind! This was a purely role playing session and a nice change of pace! Our session began as we regrouped following the major battle with the Coalition forces. Mor'd-kai healed Bikram as he was still wounded from being shot by the armored robot's massive gun. ...

She is from a magic rich world known as Eberron.. ;) The session began with Mor'd-kai healing up the wounded in the logging camp with help from Bikram. Asia scavenged weapons (and GRENADES!...

Sorry for the long silence. Our last session got cancelled due to not having enough players.
So for those who did show up, we played board games.

Re: The Red Dawn Chronicles (session 3)

This is getting posted a few days late, but the good news is we are gaming tomorrow (we normally game every other week, which would be next Teusday). Enjoy! We began with a somewhat subdued reunion with all the ETU (mega-super-heroic) peeps. Subtle changes had left marks upon us all. Mor'd-kai was ...

Re: The Red Dawn Chronicles (session 2)

Session Two Recap Note: We were missing Bikram's player, so he was run as an allied npc this session. We were able to recover three grenades, a laser pistol, a lighter, some smokes and some weapon cartridges from the soldier Bikram and Mor'd-kai dragged off. Mor'd-kai was also able to figure out the...

Re: Which social media platforms do you use?

G+ primarily, Facebook a fairly close second. I agree with RFT above. Facebook tends to be more political in general. When I got on to G+, I made the decision to keep it game and hobby related. Facebook is more for family which usually means getting into political debates as my politics differ from ...

Re: Naruni, Inc.

Has there been any updates to the Naruni Inc weapons?
There was a post on the Savage Rifts G+ group of a PDF of the Naruni Weapons Catalog but a lot of it was incomplete at the time.
I was just wondering if there was a more recent listing of the weapons.

Thanks!
