GURPS After The End #12: “Revolution”

I’m outta the wasteland
I’m into this head, man

– Billy Idol, “Wasteland”

Fog and flying fish. On the road again. Conversations with Mindkeep. Politics. New goals. A promotion and an appointment to high office. Movie night! Looting the armory and gathering the troops. The Battle of Mt Hope. Cornered in the Mangled Puppy.

Feeding Liberty Vargas’ Flying Circus

Seems like just about every wastelander has picked up a pet, sidekick, or cherished ally. What does it take, day after day, to keep this show on the road?

No Game

Sadly, our regularly-scheduled game was cancelled due to illness. Pesky flu season.

Pie to the face?

Players were asking about different improvised weapons, and the question came up: what about a pie to the face?

GURPS After The End #11: “Cannonball! Run!”

We got to install microwave ovens, custom kitchen deliveries
We got to move these refrigerators, we got to move these color TVs

– Dire Straits, “Money For Nothing”

Eastbound and down. Reunions, introductions, and story time. What is a “president”, anyway? Who owns who, and why? A rescue. Into the deadly miasma. No reservations. The grand tour. What do you do with all this water? Stealing toys from the attic and major appliances. Dropping names. One houseplant gives the cold shoulder, while another acts suspicious. General Jeremiah Coot and the surgeon general. Exfiltration. Midnight attacks. Evacuation.

Coming Soon…

A new play synopsis! I’m just slow getting it written up this time around. Too many other errands.

Additional Notes on GURPS After The End #10: “Junk Storms”

The first in-game day of session #10, the weather was cloudy enough that Vine had to eat food, rather than just soaking up whatever passes for sunshine in the wastelands. I remarked that the clouds were showing lots of dark lines moving through them. This prompted questions and Naturalist rolls.

GURPS After The End #10: “Deadly Races”

Suddenly ahead of me, across the mountainside

A gleaming alloy air-car shoots towards me, two lanes wide…

– Rush, “Red Barchetta”

New growth. How to arrange for an ox-setter. Driver’s ed in the wasteland. Mysterious utterances of some oracle. Good old-fashioned spikey-haired cannibal raiders. A wild ride, sudden violence, then lunch. Dinner with goat-people who think the van is baaaad. A journey into “dangr”. Lucky that plants don’t breathe. Daring rescues by bicycle – whee! So, what’s a “President”?

GURPS After The End #9: “Unchivalrous Conduct”

The carnage races on well into the night
As the sun creeps up we see the morning light
On the battlefield the tragedy of dawn
Through the crimson tide we still carry on

– Omen, “Battle Cry”

Unexpected, unpleasant visitors. Roadside conversations and startling insults. Dire directions. The charge of the death machine, and the carnage that followed. The sentry bot fulfills its primary function, to its great satisfaction. Negotiations through a locked door. If one ally won’t, sometimes a new ally will. Dealing with the devil. A solo raid and a feast. Repairs.

GURPS After The End #8: “Access”

With parts made in Japan

I am the modern man

– Styx, “Mr Roboto”

The battle for the van. Hostile rocks and hoop snakes. A welfare check and a dinner invitation, a rare hot bath and an unscheduled checkup. Hackles raised. Conversations with a crazy Coot. The benign countenance of the colonel. The biggest map anyone has ever seen. Unidentified flying objects, both ancient and fresh. Online.
