Default A message of love and unity

Last session was good fun and I feel that there was plenty of opportunity to get shooting time going .

The infighting was vicious and did not improve the partys tactical position however.

There is little use in putting any blame on anyone in particular - pretty much everyone has been a fu***ng basta** against the others from time to time.Some will point to teh GM and say -"he put me up to it!" Or in other words society is to blame and I am not responsible ..

in either /all cases :

" lets not argue and bicker about who killed who ..."

Bad blood from 5 seasons of murderous campaigning with everyone trying their best to topple the others .Backstabbing as an industry,paranoia,fear,hostility and of course-endless bickering....
The cost of life.. ( well ,playercharacter life,but still ..)

But the way I see it there is now 4 NEW characters in my campaign ,and none of them know the last "old hand" ( deCorba ) very well.

You got the young and brash aristocrat "Junior",
the blasè showman with the big ego ,
the scared academic with the scrawny,pale arms ,
you have the sixgun toting bluecollar grease monkey and
the seasoned war veteran warlord - a survivor of pepperspray and mustard gas attacks .

On paper it is a great team .Skilled in many different areas.

Everyone is pretty much new to eachother.

The slates are clean.

In other words :

It is a great opportunity to start building mutual trust and respect for eachothers PCs and get some bonafide camaraderie going .Meaning :
sticking your neck out for a buddy
giving up something you want for yourself for the good of all
supporting your pals when they are hard pressed
and for God`s sake - stop shooting eachother to pieces with the "supporting fire " moves you guys are pulling !
(see the thread "small unit tactical cohesion and combat rules knowledge " )

As a GM I always lay out pitfalls for the players - it is a favourite past time.It can be anything from the one cool gun inbetween the other piecs of junk ,a secret offer of power and riches if you just change your allegiances,an opportunity to oppress one of the other PCs with impunity..

It is never done because I enjoy bickering and bitter feuds so much .
( Although I do enjoy them a little ) .

But rather these are the challenges that your PCs face in ADDITION to all the NPCs charging you with guns blazing .

Take a moment to reflect on this before your PCs next actions.

They may come back to haunt you .

peace
-out

Default Hehe

Sorry about the "supporting" fire...

I guess I got a little too enthustastic as the setting reminded me a little too much about a movie set...

Anyways, I really enjoyed the infighting which was very Al Quida-style, and the on-the-job-training for the new recruits.

The last minute of playing was is a nice cliffhanger for the sequel which I guess will be released in 2010 somewhere:

The old-timer, shot to pieces hanging on to his cannon on top of an exploding nuke storage, the two recruits running for their life in fear and desperation and Iron Man running James-Bond style chased by a helicopter dogding bullets and laughing of death. Where did Grease go - I must have forgot...

Anyways nice session - although we could downplay the infighting slightly next time we meet.

Default hehe indeed

You are quite right, I hadnt really thought of this - the cliffhanger aspect came through strong this time , with you guys running away from the countdown in the nuke bunker and starting out into the area around the bunker that is teeming with desperate ,fanatical NDP cadre that seem hell bent on getting out of there for some reason..

Of course - helicopters buzzing overhead now and then with some kind of task in the NDP operation to stop you guys..

Little time from sitdown to it goes down next time around.

As for the message of love and unity - humanity can only hope that all of you will get your sh*t together and act as a band of brothers sometime soonish.

Sanchez- no worries. I am sure the guys will accept your apology for shooting them down from behind as they were storming the enemy position.And for using a judo throw to push one of them out into the enemy line of fire .And for throwing handgrenades that caught them in the blast radius.

Twice.

hehe.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again: Iron Man is an Epic character!

Sanchez - I love you man! Keep up the great work!

As for Grease, I'm leading the two prisoners in a head over heel escape from what will be known as DeCorbas funeral pyre.

Default yes...

+1 for forgiveness from Willis it is .Thats the spirit man ! Brotherly love ( platonic ) and espirit de corps.hear , hear !

It will also be known as " the charge of the light squad" - the famous attack of a half squad of badly wounded infantrymen against the brigade size mechanized NDP unit that had surrounded the funeral pyre.



both movies will be great !
