BTT EoW 1.7: Tell Me Everything

EOW

It appears that the paranoia is not all unwarranted, as there is an unexpected attack. So we get our first look at the combat mechanics in the Open D6 System. We also stay true to our form and drop a horrific twist at the end of the episode.

BTT EoW 1.6: Three Weeks Older

EOW

Clandestine train station meetings, cryptic and misleading phone conversations, paranoia of being a sitting duck while helpless in the hospital… we hit a myriad of mystery tropes, but the story is heating up as the threat seems to be more complex than anticipated.  And at the end even the unassumingly innocent reveal something horrifically magical.

BTT EoW 1.5: Commentary 1

EOW

Here’s a great commentary session on the beginning of this campaign.

BTT EoW 1.4: Stoking the Fires

EOW

In the aftermath of the explosion, the characters get some much needed intel on the threat the city faces. And befitting his style, the GM drops some more metaphorical bombs by “giving the right information to the wrong characters.”

BTT EoW 1.3: Safe… Not Safe?

EOW

As we pull on the plot strings that will tie the characters together, Julian and Jerr meet up with Gaspar, Sam’s date with Katari yields a glimpse at the dangers in play, and when the “bomb” finally drops on what can cause 20D of damage, we say goodbye to our favorite hangout spot.

BTT EoW 1.2: The Slippery Weasel

EOW

Sam runs into an old military friend, and something seems to be not quite right about the encounter. Chime arranges a meeting to catch up with his estranged brother, Choler, and Gaspar summons Jerr to find out if something of importance was stolen before the fire. The players also begin to speculate what the agent of chaos is that Jordan has up his sleeve… something that causes 20D damage!
