General Shadowrun campaign news and a new Seattle Scream (#57) prop

3 October, 2018

The CityOur 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.  Last month we even got to playtest a Prime Runner level game scenario that was played at Dragon*Con.  The NorCal campaign, the game were I actually get to play a character, has seen some more play and remains one of my favorite games with lots of problem solving (latest report from that here).

The latest news from my campaign here in Seattle Scream #57, this one is mostly setup for potential adventures and maybe some stuff for the NorCal campaign to riff off of.

Now, be careful out there in the shadows my friends.  The world is dark place with the threat of betrayal ever present.

Shadowrun campaign updates, Podcasting thoughts and a new Seattle Scream (#56) prop

7 June, 2018

Shadowrun continues to be played, 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.  The NorCal campaign, that I am a player in, has seen some more play and remains great fun and moving forward (latest report from that here).

I am plotting a short Shadowrun podcast that would be split half in-game/in-character advice to shadowrunners and half “how you do that in the game”.  Would that be of interest to people?  And if so, what would you like advice on?

The latest news from my campaign here in Seattle Scream #56, the troll town murders are from the last Saturday session, where the player found out how scary spirits are when you only have limited magic support.

Now, be careful out there in the shadows my friends.  The world is cruel and dangerous place.

More Shadowrun campaign updates and a new Seattle Scream (#55) prop

20 February, 2018

ManaWave HQ, maybeThe Shadowrunning continues with more games, including monthly the 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.  So hot on the heels of the last issue, there is a new issue of the Seattle Scream (#55, March 2074).  The main news story, about ManaWave Technologies, is the endgame of three years or more of in-game encounters with Dr Shipson’s machinations.  So happy to have her motives finally unveiled.

The NorCal, that I am a player in, is back in session and remains great fun and moving forward (latest report from that here) though we have just lost one of our players due to medical reason.

Now, be careful out there in the shadows my friends.  The world is cruel and dangerous place.

Shadowrun Campaign Update for the New Year (’18/’74) and new Seattle Scream prop (#54)

25 January, 2018

The Shadowrunning continues apace, with monthly 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.  Indeed, the central story (about metahumans and schools) ties into these Monthly games and how the last two have played out.

The NorCal set game on occasional Thursdays, which I am a player in, remains great fun and still moving forward (last report from that here) though we have just lost one of our stablest players due to medical reason.

I even had a chance to play my Seattle based character Slappy in a one-shot adventure themed to the New Year!  Rah!

Again, I have fallen behind on keeping up on the Seattle Scream but here is a new issue for the New Year (#54, February 2074)!

Now, be careful out in the shadows my friends.  Trust no one and keep your weapon handy  More news soon.

Shadowrun Campaign Updates and new Seattle Scream prop (#53)

21 September, 2017

Again, I have fallen behind on keeping up on the Seattle Scream but finally a new issue (#53, October 2073)!

Things have been going well, with monthly 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.  Indeed, the story in the lower right hand corner refers to the last Thursday night mission (which was a failure or it would have been a very different news item).

The NorCal set game on occasional Thursdays, which I am a player in, is still moving forward (last report from that here) and still great fun.

The rock tour set game I was running is on hiatus and I work out how to better coordinate the players involved.

But, be careful out in the shadows my friends.  More news soon.

Shadowrun Campaign Update and new Seattle Scream (#52) prop

29 June, 2017

Ghoulish, ne?If it seems like a while since I did one of these, it is because it has been (October, in fact, here).  But Shadowrun continues apace with monthly open games held at Tyche’s Games and occasional other games scattered almost randomly.  Though the PinkCat/NorCal game is also going strong having racked up more than thirty sessions at this point (most recent here).

I have been using Shadowfist cards to randomly generate adventure ideas which has been working out really well.  One of the character was almost eaten by ghouls in the last adventure (see the Cannibal Army card which inspired their inclusion) which was great fun for me, maybe not so much for the player and character!

Playing again this coming Saturday and felt it was past time for a new Seattle Scream, so here you go, Issue 52 (July 2073).

Shadowrun, Anarchy and a new Seattle Scream prop (#51)

15 October, 2016

Happy Haoweener!It is almost Halloween(er) Time!  Been running quite a bit of Shadowrun over the last two months.  We have some new players for the monthly game, including one who tried an in-game betrayal (which ended badly for the character and his ganger buddies)!  The games for this week have mostly focused on dealing with the crazy Seattle gang, the Halloweeners, which has been fun.  Hope to get in at least one more appearance by the Halloweeners by the end of the month.

This week, due to payer absences, we gave a the new Shadowrun: Anarchy system a spin.  It is very narrativist and pretty neat, but it will take some getting used too.  I do not think we used the system to its best advantage, but there is always next time and we will certainly try it again.

And now for the latest news from my Shadowrun word: Seattle Scream #51.
