On Saturday I went to Games and Things to participate in the Charm City Gameday.
First thing, is that Games and Things recently moved to a new location, and this was my first time visiting it. I have to say I like this location a lot better!!
In addition to the Gameday, there was also a Magic tournament, as well as a few miniature games going on at the far side of the gaming area.
My first game was under the Rules Light RPG system, and the scenario was called "I Owe My Cortical Stack to the Company Store" run by Sean. It was described this way: In a universe destroyed, but also sustained, by space travel, you are all “employees” of the space mining corp Exo-ds. You are not necessarily mercenaries, but you certainly do have your price. You rely on the mining corporations, having lost your body to the lethal space jumps, only your mind remains, uploaded to the corporate database, waiting to be downloaded to a new body for your next mission.
I played Dr. Chester, an xenoarchiologist with a thing for explosives. The rest was comprised of:
Lisa, played Telma, a computer expert/hacker
Harold, played Kurt Sinto, an in your face melee brute
Katie, played Vin the bounty hunter.
The basic scenario was very much like the movie Alien. We made our way from the cloning/med-bay to the reactor core, fighting past various mutant zombies.
Fun little TPK!
Then it was time for lunch.
