Against the Vampire Conspiracy: Ties of Blood (Session 3)
Will H runs for Alun R., Donogh, Puckett, and Sabine V.
The conclusion to Operation 2! Konstantyn harnesses the dark, Mia makes a friend, Yelena absolutely cleans house and Dylan deals with a contact corrupted by Vampiric Mesmerism.
Against the Vampire Conspiracy: Ties of Blood (Session 4)
Will H runs for Donogh, Puckett, and Sabine V.
The Conspiracy makes a mistake and the operators seize upon it. Scrambling to hide their secrets, key files about EDOM's HMS Prosperine operation have been temporarily stashed in a gangster's storage depot, no questions asked. Some bribes get the team through the door - just in time for the Playboy's rivals to launch an attack on the compound!
Delta Green: Divergence (Session 10)
Lowell Francis runs for Alun R., Horst Wurst, Paul Rivers, and Will H
The team finally forcibly confront the strangeness of the town and see further behind the veil. One team member is rescued and another wakes up with a corpse and little memory of events. Finally they decide to take things on directly leading to a factory of horrors, a conflagration, a cross-country hike, and a new mission briefing.
Revenge of the Faerie Queen (Session 2 of 2)
Shane runs for José Feito, Kyle H., Lowell Francis, and Matthew Doughty
In the final session of the campaign, the characters have the Faerie Queen pinned down in a hotel basement, weakened and isolated. Unfortunately for them and our world, the Queen still has a few surprises up her sleeve.
Old School Essentials: Against the Slavers (Session 8)
Mike Ferdinando runs for Anya, Ben, and Tim Leitner
AD&D module A2: "Secret of the Slavers Stockade" (published in 1981) - Caldas, Kaf, and Bah-Run make a final confrontation against the lord of the stockade.
Gauntlet Reading Club
Urban Shadows 2e: The Chosen and The Beautiful (Session 4)
Steven S. runs for David Morrison and Maria M.
In this installment of our Urban Shadows run inspired by Nghi Vo's The Chosen and the Beautiful, Dante's meeting with Ms. Wentworth takes an unexpected turn and Chloe helps Elian manage with his war trauma.
Monsterhearts: Every Heart a Doorway (Session 2)
Steven S. runs for David Morrison, Kae, Marleigh, and Sabine V.
We are introduced to our final main character, Formorian Grace, and see our characters start their day at the Open Door Academy. Siren Jason puts on a show, Ghost Leigh has some unwelcome visions, and Bailey deals with their jealousy in a completely healthy manner. It's only the first session and we're already doing a musical interlude!
Star Wars Saturday
Burning Hearts (Session 3)
Rich Rogers runs for Jo Lene, Sam Zimmerman, Sawyer Rankin, and Sherri
A duel with a pirate captain, fomenting a small rebellion, and facing off against a TIE Fighter...all in a day for these Jedi.
Stars in the Dark (Session 22)
Anders runs for Marc Majcher, Mark (they/them), Rich Rogers, and Steven Watkins
New Crew?! - Things take a turn as the father of Bria's son shows up and Etema goes on tour! Less action but a lot of discussion about the future of the crew. I guess we're heading into season three?
Road Trip (Session 1)
Rich Rogers runs for Josh H, Peter, Sabine V., and Steven Watkins
The brand new crew of Double Payback set off from Corellia to Bespin...probably.
Dream Aflame (Session 1 of 2)
Donogh runs for Jim C., Sabine V., and SalamanderJames
Bones the Sentenced, Shepherd the Faithful & Professor the Seeker happen across a dammed river, blocked by massive bones from some unknown creature(s), as curiosity gets the better of caution. Jorrith, the Marked stays in the Necromotive on its tracks, as Crozier follows ominously.
