Continuum Leicester, 12-15th August UK

#1 Postby zackspacks » Wed Jul 20, 2016 1:42 pm

Hi All
Crikey - not a lot of UK stuff on here, hope this is okay to post here?

Thought I would post my Savage games up for the biannual con, Continuum in Leicester this year. This will be my fourth appearance at the con, and I have ran some Savage every time.

Below are my Savage games for the con:

Hope to meet up with some forum members there!
Cheers all
Paul

PS: Apologies, as I have had to break up the post as it would not post as one document, I kept getting an error message about my post not being in English :lol:

The planet Mercury, has a network of underground cities, inhabited by the citizens of the Mishima Megacorporation. The planet is proliferated with Mishima controlled mines, which provide a huge source of income for the megacorp. Today started with an earthquake growing in force over several minutes, before finally a huge decaying spire pierced one of the underground motorways, tossing cars and trucks around like rag dolls. A portal on the spire opened releasing the stench of decay, and spewed out the forces of the dreaded Dark Legion, beings from a dark dimension. Their aim: corrupt or destroy the living.

The fate of the world rests on the courage of five disgraced Samurai…

Slot 4: Saturday afternoon
Title: Blondie: Call Me
System: Realms Of Cthulhu
GM: Paul Lawrence
Time: 4 hours
[6 players]

The year is 1985. You are members of Her Majesty’s Extra-Secret Service ( a.k.a. ‘The Laundry’) , Workgroup Codename ‘Blondie’, whose job remit is to investigate any discoveries of the Turing Theorem, and suppress them ( in accordance with BS 5750 ).

A Gate has opened up opposite Woolworths, and you are called out to remove the problem, and find the culprit responsible. Put that can of Quatro down, and scramble into your Xr3is.

Game Notes :
[1] Contains background elements as detailed in Charles Stross ‘Laundry’ novels, although no prior reading is necessary.
[2] The pop group ‘Blondie’ does not exist in this alternate reality, however, everything else, is ‘our’ 1980’s.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Slot 8: Sunday evening
Title: Tales of the Uncanny Rum
System: Savage Worlds Lankhmar
GM: Paul Lawrence
Players: 4
Length - 3 hours

Lankhmar, City Of Thieves; and last night your group butchered some of their number. Not clever, as ‘City Of Thieves’ implies they may have a Guild. They do, it’s huge, and now there is a large bounty on your heads.

Last night, your group were out on a Rum Tour in the shady area known as the Plaza Of Dark Delights. You seem to remember rolling home without any incident. Time to find out the truth, before the bounty hunters find you.

You could drink a murder...
