Stars Without Number Campaign: On Reynold's World (Session 3 )

This is part of an ongoing campaign. You can find the other sessions over on the sidebar.

The players decided to raid Spiros's compound to free Kasama. They quietly moved out of the camp and circled around to a high tower on the same side of the camp as Spiros's compound. Derby Pope climbed the tower and could see over the wall that the small compound consisted of two buildings, two small shed-like outbuildings, and a heli-pad. One of the outbuildings seemed to be an outhouse.

After he reported back in, they slipped around the back of the compound and scaled the rear wall. They decided that the larger outbuilding was the holding cell that Marcus had described and made their way to the door. They took out the guard standing by the door and GB used his teleport ability to phase into the outbuilding while Derby Pope opened the door.

As soon as the door was opened, an alarm went off. GB pulled Kasama out of view behind the outbuilding as Pope pulled himself up onto the roof and Leonalcus used his holocloak to take the general form of the guard they had knocked out. He turned around and pretended to examine the door.

As a group of men came running around one of the larger buildings to respond to the alarm, Leonalcus told them that he didn't know what happened. His disguise was far from perfect, but it worked well enough to draw them in a bit closer before they realized that there was invaders.

Once Spiros and his men were in close, the team opened fire on them. The firefight was over quick, but got a bit messy when Spiros started throwing grenades. When all of the attackers were down, the team slipped back over the rear fence and made their escape.

Once they were sure that they were safe, they questioned Kasama and he told them that Spiros had only seemed interested in learning who he had told about the door. Once he had established that he hadn't told anybody, Spiros had promised to let him go "once the coast was clear". He did not understand what Spiros was referring to,

They took Kasama back to Wood, who thanked them and agreed to resume talks with Chioma. She also agreed to allow them to use Spiros's compound as long as they were on call for security services. She made it clear that she was no longer interested in any violent confrontations with the union.

After they reported back to Chioma, GB hired Lupe using his henchman ability.

Hex Crawls

Those of you who have been reading this blog know that I have never run a megadungeon before. I have always used more realistic dungeon settings, keeping all underground areas to a minimum and keeping the over all size of castles and the like fairly small. There is another style of gaming I have never indulged in: the hex crawl. I have never seen hexes as discrete chunks of the map. I always just used them as a guide to find distance if they were present and not worrying about themif they were not. I have always taken a more continuous view of overland maps. This is another streak that will be ending with my upcoming OSRIC game. I will be using James M's Outdoor Map as a starting pont in my campaign. I will be heavily modifying it for my purposes but most of the features will stay the same. I will be adding my own versions of Castles Blackmoor and Greyhawk to the map. I have been struggling with how a hex crawl works. How do I know if they find features in the hex and isn't 5 m

Traveller: Session 33

  This session was run on June 15, 2023.   130-2108   They confronted Reverend Kavanaugh about the wrench and the explosive bolts and he changed his story again. He now claimed that, even in his revised story, he had still tried to protect Dieter and his memory. Dieter had not just surrendered to fate and drawn straws after his failed attempt to poison Kavanaugh at breakfast. As soon as it was clear that the paralytic was not working, he attempted to choke Kavanaugh. As the two wrestled, Kavanaugh grabbed a wrench from the toolbox, left in the common room during their repair efforts, and bashed Dieter over the head. He had then flushed Dieter’s body, along with the wrench, out of the airlock. He claimed not to have known about the explosive bolts and said that, because there were only two of them aboard, there were sixteen hours each day where only one of them was awake.   Unable to determine if this latest story was true, they informed him that they stil

Traveller: Session 5

    This is part of an ongoing campaign. You can find the other sessions over on the sidebar. This session was run on October 27, 2022. This session contains secret communications between me and the individual players. This means that these recaps do not cover everything that happened in the session. I will be reporting only the information that all players had access to.   131-1116   After the council meeting ended, Nashu, Archduke Ishuggi’s chief of staff, pulled him aside. Following the revelation that Yuri Lang, the emperor’s would-be assassin, had been a member of Archduke Adair’s intelligence service and had been involved in a combined operation with Gateway Intelligence, she had the staff run overlap checks on all recent contacts. The goal was to determine if there were any more unexpected connections between people that could be a threat to Ishuggi or the emperor.   She learned that, in 1113, Yuri Lang (“Baron Pazi”), Zurzi (Archduke Bzrk’s chief of st
