Coliseum

Seeing Red 

Of the four racing teams, the Reds and the Blues are the oldest. Yet, despite their long pedigrees, both have fallen upon hard times. The Reds have had an even worse time of it than the Blues, though, and the Reds are now the dregs of the coliseum: penniless, hopeless, a laughingstock. In the end, they have come so far down that they will do anything to get back up. Anything— including bribery, cheating, or foul play

So each survivor (should there be any), utilizing the latest in communications technology, will be able to assist anyone else whose attack comes a few seconds later.

Infinite Class, Bounty Hunter 

AVG 3100-2.0-CL-BH 

8 Pages 

$2.99 

A. J. Kenning 

 

Bounty hunters are individuals who hunt down criminals for a bounty, generally a small percentage of the bail put up for the criminal’s release. In later ages, though, those criminals being hunted are often heavily augmented with powerful machinery or biological parts, or even enhanced by strange, alien designs. The wonderful and terrible things that bounty hunters have faced and fought down could fuel many a horror story. And facing down those things comes at a heavy price. Bounty hunter lives were already short, but they only grew shorter as the technology advanced. In order to combat the growing threat, a group of bounty hunters teamed up and began augmenting themselves in return, but in a different way. These heavily armored, heavily drug-induced warriors became the famed Skoecher Brigade, from which all later bounty hunters effectively descend.

Infinite Futures, Terran Marines Source Book 

AVG 3100-2.0-MR 

12 Pages 

$6.99 

David Caffee 

 

In the furthest reaches of unexplored space, there are dangers that few have the courage to face. Not everyone has the resolve, adaptability, and intelligence to handle the unknown and persevere against overwhelming odds. The people of the core worlds stare nervously at the skies, wondering what hidden menace might be lurking in the realms that lie past their own tiny corner of space. Protecting the citizens of known space from the terrors of the night is the duty of a select group of men and women known as the Terran Marine Corps.

Perhaps the most highly regarded military force in core space, the Terran Marines are an elite service branch under the command of Earth’s central government. Recruited from the best and brightest that the human home world has to offer, these ferocious combatants are arguably the best-trained and best-equipped fighters found among the four core world species.

A fully detailed guide to playing a Terran Marine in the Fringe setting, inside you will find several new advanced classes geared toward the Marine class, new information on the Corps, their goals and training, and a wealth of great gaming goodness.

[Avalon Games] The Chillun are Loose in June!

‘Tis the month when all the kids get out of school and wreak havoc on everything. Now, it’s always encouraging to get them into a game, but there are those kids who’d rather eat a bug than do anything that you enjoy.

So we can all agree that children, especially in groups, can be evil.

Which can be a great plot point. You can use a gaggle of them as

-a gang of thieves

-a group of mutant aliens

-little monsters

-petulant godlings

-wannabe detectives or heroes

-effective fighters (or not so effective fighters)

-victims.

So next time you’re stuck, throw some kids at the adventurers and see if any stick.

Here’s this month’s releases.

David Caffee, J. M. Perkins 

Avalon Games is happy to make your life a bit more horrible…

Seven centuries ago, the Christian kingdoms of Denmark, Poland, and Sweden conducted a series of crusades against the pagan lands around the shores of the Baltic Sea. These kingdoms were aided by Catholic military orders from Germany. When the Latgalian tribe decided to side with the crusaders, their leaders converted from the Eastern Orthodox Church to Roman Catholicism. However, there were those among the tribe that still clung to their traditional religion and refused baptism. The medicine man, Izcacus, was one of the pagans who resisted the crusaders, and he paid a terrible price for it.

The party is tasked with traveling to a remote monastery in northern Europe. The Orletz Monastery sits high up in the mountains, near the place where the borders of the German and Russian Empires meet. There are a number of reasons why the party might be making this journey. The hunters might be visiting the monastery at the request of one of the monks who resides in the hermitage, an anonymous plea for deliverance from an unnamed threat. They might also be there in search of ancient texts or holy relics said to be hidden in a sealed vault below the structure. It is even possible that the hunters are investigating the monastery because they have heard rumors of supernatural activity in the area.

No matter the reason for the visit, once there the Hunters find danger and a deadly new foe, a vampire old and dangerous beyond belief…

Invasion 

AVG 3100-2.0-In 

11 Pages

A.J. Kenning 

 

Ever since H.G. Wells published War of the Worlds in 1898, stories about invaders from other worlds are a staple of the science fiction genre. Numerous real-world panics have been created by people terrified by the idea of aliens coming to our planet with evil intent. Certainly there are also many stories about aliens who are peaceful, tolerant, and wise; these beings come to Earth with benign intentions, and often it is the humans who are the villains. Still, it is easy to understand why the prospect of encountering another species is so frightening. What if they are not benevolent? What if their society is not the epitome of advanced culture and enlightened values? In other words, what if they are just like us: flawed, violent, and willing to take what they want by force?

Human history is riddled with negative examples of contact between formerly isolated cultures. Rarely are these events a meeting of equals, and rarer still have the less technologically advanced cultures escaped assimilation, enslavement, or genocide. If one is aware of the Roman conquest of Europe, and the European conquest of the Americas, then how can one ignore the possibility that our first contact will be with an alien conquistador? Can we be sure that our otherworldly visitors will not be greedy, violent subjugators in the model of Columbus and Cortez?

[Avalon Games] It’s A-MAY-Zing!

This month you get a write-up for a little beast that we all recognize.

The May Zing is a particularly nasty bug that only comes out in spring. Existing on millions of worlds throughout the universe, these particularly fast insectoids are capable of being annoying at one point of damage for one of them, but life-threatening when their numbers get up to the dozens.

The May Zing is only heard when within a foot of its victim and often is it in the middle of a dive-bomb action to exposed skin. The May Zing uses its speed to inject its proboscis through the hide or epidermal layer, causing a flash of pain for the quarry, and the Zing ejects itself away from the target to ensure its safe escape. Most victims do not realize the attack is underway until it is too late and is left with a bleeding stab wound of about half a centimeter somewhere on their person.

One in six human victims suffer an additional allergic reaction to the wound, and one in six of those is anaphylactic in nature (once a target has an anaphylactic reaction, that person is considered “deathly allergic” without medication from here on out). Covering all exposed skin is one method of avoiding attacks, as well as bug sprays, and shielding. Spiritually sensitive people and animals (psychics, magicians, psionics, etc.) can sense the impending attacks from two meters out, which is why livestock tend to instinctively flick their tails at just the right time.

Just a little fun creature creation to get you in the mood.

Here’s this month’s releases.

AVG4900-20

A.J Keening

$2.99

The Ultrapolis

Powered Armor and Vigilantes!

Mecha Combat in a Dystopian Future!

The Ultrapolis: The Ultrapolis is a city that dwarfs all other cities ever to exist. Not everyone who works in the Ultrapolis lives in the Ultrapolis, though. Many live just outside, in the Sticks. The Sticks has largely been abandoned by the Powers that Be. Police and rescue departments never enter the Sticks anymore and this is where the Vigilantes step in, filling the void that the absence of the authorities has left, standing the line against crime and chaos through sheer force of will. That, and all the mecha technology that a secret wealthy benefactor can buy.

Conformity

Identity

Warning: They are Watching.

So reads the latest tag showing up on walls, vehicles, and hacked computers all over the city. No one thinks much of it, and the tags soon get lost amidst the constant noise of the Ultrapolis. But Identity soon goes beyond simple tagging. Their demand: all monitoring devices by the government and corporations will be turned off permanently or there will be consequences. Then they demonstrate their power as hundreds of banks are robbed simultaneously all across the Sticks. The local authorities are unprepared to handle such a large-scale threat to the banking system, much less hunt down the hackers who caused it. If the hackers are to be hunted down and stopped, it will be up to the Vigilantes to do it.

When you want to 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. Then try out the new adventures in the coliseum, which combines heroics and intrigue!

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 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.

Mata Hari, a Monster Hunters Adventure

AVG5100-06

7 Pages

$2.99

David Caffee, Tony Chen

Avalon Games is happy to make your life a bit more horrible…

Margaretha Geertruida Zelle MacLeod is an exotic dancer famous throughout Western Europe. For the past six years, she has gained great acclaim under the stage name, Mata Hari. She performs in “authentic” Eastern costumes that are both ornately decorated and extremely revealing. Her routines combine exotic eastern dances she learned in the Dutch East Indies with her own individual style. Her popularity stems from both the European fascination with all things oriental and her willingness to shed clothing on stage.

In the winter of 1911, Mata Hari is performing in La Scala Theatre in Milan, Italy. There she captures the eye of a certain Prince Carlo and is invited to do a private rendition as “Salome” in his manor. Upon her return, she complains of general malaise and is soon too ill to continue performing.

Adventure Summary

Mata Hari’s booking agent, Gabriel Astruc, alarmed at a possible breach of contract with La Scala and disturbed by the nature of Mata Hari's illness, contacts the hunters to look into the matter. The party soon learns that Prince Carlo is a vampire who has become obsessed with the famous dancer. He is also intrigued by the fact that Mata Hari’s social circle includes several highly placed military officers, politicians, and industrialists. He has thus decided to convert Mata Hari into a vampire under his control. Through her, he intends to extend his influence throughout Europe.
