Shadowrun Campaign Catchup and New Seattle Scream Prop (#59)

7 April, 2019

Seattle, Exterior, NightShadowrun gaming has fallen a bit behind in our rotation due to a variety of reasons (such as playtesting a supplement for [redacted]) which has eaten up gaming time.  The monthly games at Tyche’s Games (every first Saturday every month, come and join) continue apace.

Still trying to decide where to move the focus of the campaign as the major villain has receded into the background and the primary organizer of runs they were working for has had to go on the lam.  One-off adventures are fine but I am looking for a greater amount of connective tissue between stories. but I have not found it yet.  Hopefully inspiration will strike soon.

Our NorCal game continues apace, the latest report from PinkCat can be found here.

The latest news from my version of Seattle, 2075, can be found in the Seattle Scream #59.

PinkCat: Running in the Shade “Surfs Up!” (A different sort of SR campaign report)

2 April, 2019

To understand what is going on here, you had best read the first PinkCat: Running in the Shade post, but short summary, this is a campaign report for our Shadowrun campaign set in NorCal through the filter of a cartoon made by one of the team members.

Episode Forty Two: Surfs Up!

Guest Starring: DoubleUp and Rani (and in the cartoon everyone else too)

At the beach

It is spring break and everyone has decided to go to the beach!  This is basically a fan service / remember all the characters? episode with cameos from all of the characters who have graced the cartoon in the past with lots of jokes about California celebrity culture, surfing, tiki style, and suchlike.  Lots of short scenes and visual jokes, a musical number, and just a celebration of the cartoon and California as a whole, a very upbeat and colorful episode that moves nothing forward but is just entertainment.

PinkCat: Running in the Shade “Babysitting” (A different sort of SR campaign report)

10 February, 2019

To understand what is going on here, you had best read the first PinkCat: Running in the Shade post, but short summary, this is a campaign report for our Shadowrun campaign set in NorCal through the filter of a cartoon made by one of the team members.

Episode Forty One: Babysitting

Kids todayGuest Starring: Clawz, Rani, Tora and Doc Cav.

Pink is asked to watch over the children of her neighbors, all six of them, all troublemakers, so she has to call in help from more and more of her friends as the night goes on.  Much classic comedy shtick ensures, Rube Goldberg-esque traps, chases in and out of doors on a long corridor and so on, lots of call outs to classic cartoons.  At the end, Pink and her friends are frazzled, the kids are exhausted and asleep and the parent arrive to see that nothing went wrong . . .  and the whole back wall of the apartment building falls off.

Shadowrun campaign news, heading into a new year, and a new Seattle Scream (#58) prop

30 December, 2018

Our various Shadowrun games continue on, not least monthly with introductory games at Tyche’s Games (every first Sat, feel free to join us), and the occasional game as part of our Thursday night rotation both the NorCal game and occasional one-shot adventure in Seattle.  I got to GM both a Halloween and Christmas themed adventure, with plague spirits for the former and rescuing stolen toys for the later, and play in a Christmas themed one in the NorCal campaign (“Secret Santa“).

The latest news from my campaign here in Seattle Scream #58, the EcoTerrorist piece is laying some (undeserved) blame on one of the player runner teams but that is corporate controlled media for you.  We will see what people make of the rest of them.

Now, be careful out there in the shadows my friends.  The world is dangerous so keep your wits about you and your weapons near to hand.
