Corporation Game

Murph – I played in the finale of Destroyer of Worlds for Alien RPG run by our friend Chris aka iPwned on the Discord. It was great! I was able to determine that Roll20 only allows you to roll 18 dice at a time, so my attempted 90d6 roll had to be done in chunks.

Then I also ran a game of Troika! for some of my Wednesday Group. And it was soo much fun! Troika! is an rpg that was apparently created by putting a magic-mushroom eating Lewis Carrol and William Burroughs on junk in the middle of the Surrealist Exhibition in Birmingham and asking them to create an RPG setting. It’s fantastic.

Dave – I am waist deep in play-testing my super secret Cthulhu game, and that’s going great. I am also prepping to run Alien Chariot of the Gods for my Sunday group, and will start that tomorrow. I’ve been watching the Alien movies in preparation, director’s cut and all. Covenant… sigh.
