Avalon Games Fools No One in April

You know, there’s a difference between tricking someone and foolin’ someone. I have never minded good GMs that influence their players, getting them to do things they wouldn’t normally do.

But I hate GMs who are jerks about it.

My experience: playing for the first time in years my GM gets us along a waterway and eventually gets us to an underwater hideout. Said hideout has in the middle of the room a big chest on a pedestal. I look around the edge of the room, pick up a few things, and make to leave.

GM: What about the chest?

Me: Too suspicious looking; not touching it.

GM: What? No, you should check the chest.

ME: Nah, don’t want to. I’m leaving.

GM: Come on, check the chest, I swear there’s nothing wrong with it.

Me: ….

GM: I swear.
Me: Fine. I’ll check the chest.

GM: It’s a trap, delivering XX electrical damage. Roll.

Me: (I stare at him)

GM: (Smiling) You should never trust the GM.

Me: We’re done here.

And seriously, I WAS done and told him not to come back as my GM or anything else. I was called a spoilsport and mean and nasty. It was a slimy move and I hate people who do that.

So… in terms of GMs who trick their players…

Don’t be a jerk about it.

Adventures in the Old West

Adventures and Outlawin’, Gamblers and Gunslingers

The Old West: After the Civil War ends, some former soldiers quickly find themselves at the end of their means. Their meager payout from the war doesn't last long, and herding cattle and sheering sheep is seasonal work. Eventually, then, these former soldiers begin to supplement their incomes with various acts of outlawry, using skills they learned during the war. It isn't long after that before they become a gang of outlaws in truth. Believin’ in honesty, they call themselves the Outlaws.

Dead End Gulch: Due to a little “misunderstanding,” a couple of the Outlaws have ended up thrown in jail and sentenced to hang for crimes that they didn’t commit. 'Course they got a number of crimes that they did commit that would see them hanged, too, if’n those around these parts knew about ‘em. But that’s all beside the point to the Outlaws’ way of thinking, and the injustice of this here trial and hanging sore outrages the Outlaws’ sense of justice. They’re not about to let the Law get away with such shenanigans.

Adventures in the CYCLON

Futuristic Cycle Racing and Drama!

The Cyclon: High-speed cycle racing on the ever-changing plasti-tracks of the Cyclon. It’s high-speed thrills and danger in the deadly motorcycle racetracks of the future. Racers may live the high life, but it can all evaporate in an instant in a burst of fire and smoke from a deadly wreck.

In this series of adventures, two of the Players will portray “story characters.” Each story character has a single rule that must be obeyed during character generation. One of the Players will be the Kid. The only thing the Kid character must be is young. The second Player must be the old racing Partner of the Kid’s now-deceased Parent. The only thing the Partner must be is on the same team as the Kid. Other than that, the Players have full control over who these characters are, from name to sex to chosen skills. Also, the Kid has a few added benefits in return for having the character’s age dictated.

The Parent of the Kid was a famed Cyclon racer. One day, though, the Parent died on the track in a ball of flames. The only things most dead racers leave to their family are debts, and the lease on the racing seat they rented from the racing company that controls their cycle. In most situations, the families sell the racing seat back to the sponsor company, using the proceeds to pay off the debts, and then live of the remainder. In this rare case, the family decided to hold onto the seat until the Kid came of age to race in the Parent’s place.

Shammy Spark: In this adventure for Cyclon the Kid is learning the way of things. The Kid's parent was a famed Cyclon racer, but died on the track in a ball of flames. The Kid has come of age and now races the Parent’s old racing seat. But Cyclon racing is an expensive proposition, especially for newcomers like the Kid. Somehow, the Kid is going to have to contrive to scrape together the funds necessary to keep racing, renegotiate a contract with hostile sponsors, and fend off a bunch of racers who would rather see the Kid fail. That Kid had better be clever. Or else exceedingly lucky.

Big Ol’ Feasts for March

I just prepped eighty pounds of meat. I’m not a chef or anything, but every year there are certain events that I volunteer to cook for. This weekend is “Bear’s Tavern”, an early-spring event where the food and drink are as prominent as any other imagined medieval-like inn events that we see in gaming and elsewhere. This is my third year working in the kitchens, and I’d thought I’d share: a lot goes on there! And much of it has nothing to do with cooking….

The kitchen is where much of the socializing takes place, not only among the staff and servants, but where the Lords and Ladies show up as well—don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. What historical records would have us believe is that the noblemen never associated with any of the common people. Often it was the kitchen staff who pulled the noble children in with them when working on a big feast or to feed a hungry bottomless stomach. The children would continue to visit the kitchen area right through adulthood and often associate it with familiar warmth. This is doubly true for taverns and inns, where the children of the owners found themselves conscripted into any sort of assistance they could perform. Visiting relatives would enter the kitchen to chat and gossip with kin and neighbors and visitors often sought out company near the ovens in the wintertime.

Therefore, it makes sense in a roleplaying game to put some of the action in the kitchens. Need to find a constable’s daughter before she is kidnapped? Check the kitchens. Want to introduce a map? Someone left one in the kitchens. Where’s the body? In the soup. You get the idea.

Love flows with Avalon Games for February 2014

 

Things are heating up with our new offerings for February. You’d think I’d have a lot to say regarding sex and love in gaming, but really it comes down to the group dynamics and knowing its limits. Never assume anything when it comes to love and sex in adventuring—what you might find acceptable, comical, or even desirable is not usually shared by everyone in a group. No one should be made to feel uncomfortable in a gaming group and everyone has their own triggers.

Serious note over… enjoy this month’s selections.

Adventures in the CYCLON

Futuristic Cycle Racing and Drama!

The Cyclon: High-speed cycle racing on the ever-changing plasti-tracks of the Cyclon. It’s high-speed thrills and danger in the deadly motorcycle racetracks of the future. Racers may live the high life, but it can all evaporate in an instant in a burst of fire and smoke from a deadly wreck.

In this series of adventures, two of the Players will portray “story characters.” Each story character has a single rule that must be obeyed during character generation. One of the Players will be the Kid. The only thing the Kid character must be is young. The second Player must be the old racing Partner of the Kid’s now-deceased Parent. The only thing the Partner must be is on the same team as the Kid. Other than that, the Players have full control over who these characters are, from name to sex to chosen skills. Also, the Kid has a few added benefits in return for having the character’s age dictated.

The Parent of the Kid was a famed Cyclon racer. One day, though, the Parent died on the track in a ball of flames. The only things most dead racers leave to their family are debts, and the lease on the racing seat they rented from the racing company that controls their cycle. In most situations, the families sell the racing seat back to the sponsor company, using the proceeds to pay off the debts, and then live of the remainder. In this rare case, the family decided to hold onto the seat until the Kid came of age to race in the Parent’s place.


Gelly Rain: In this adventure for Cyclon, we open our story with the Kid. Despite the years, no one can forget that fateful night, when one of the most famous Cyclon racers died tragically on the track in a ball of flames. Instead of selling the racing seat back to the sponsor company, the family held the seat open for the day when the Kid would come of age and race in the Parent’s place. It has meant years of grinding poverty suffered by the family as it struggled to pay the seat rental fees and the dead Parent’s racing debts.  It has meant facing the anger of the sponsors, who didn’t want to leave a racing seat open for so long—a seat that they’re paying good money to sponsor. Yet, the family somehow managed. Now, the Kid has come of age and is ready to take up the Parent’s old seat. This is the Kid’s first race.

When you need a game for just one night, One Knight Games provides everything you need. From reading the rules to making characters to playing the adventure, everything is geared toward having it all happen in a single night. The game rules are free, so download the system at http://www.rpgnow.com/product/124526/One-Knight-Games-Free-Rules?cPath=1658_19945 and check it out.

The adventures of One Knight Games provide the story, maps, and descriptions of encounters—everything you need to run the adventure. However, they do not tell the GM what to say during an encounter, nor do they dictate how to run said encounters. These things are up to the Gamemaster to decide.

This first issue of One Knight Games offers a full night’s worth of fun, everything you need to run a fast, fun game with little effort and very little prep time.

Need a fast game to fill the night? Avalon is ready to help with our One Knight Game system. Get a free copy of the rules on the website, and get your game on.
