at the Gen Con tourney. Enjoy.
* At least as much as my befuddled and addled mind can remember. Everyone
involved, please feel free to correct this or fill in the blanks...
BTW: If you aren't your groups GM, and your GM is on this list, check with
him before reading this, or else I'll send Tinner to your house in a kilt!
This is especially true for players in: Dvixen's, Loki's, Bookworm's, Mike
Paff's, or My games...
OK, that's enough of those...
First: The Cast of Character!
Granite -- He ran the first round for us.
Jeff Jones -- The OTHER big bald guy there. He's more of a troll than an
Ork, I think. He ran Round 2.
Bitrunner -- Ran the thrid and final round.
Bull -- Playing a female Ork Remote Rigger named RC. Had a phobia of Fire
and spent most of the tourney flying the drones.
Loki -- Playing a Buffed out Female Sammy named CrapGame. Had a whole
passel of flaws, including Uncouth and Gambling Addiction. Was also
heavily modified and could puta troll to shame. Was played like a Slutty
and Flirtatious Southern Bell. :]
Caric -- Played a Cajun Dwarven Mage who's named escapes me. He had some
healing spells, Vehicle masking, and little else useful...;]
Dvixen -- Played a Male Rigger named Silver-something, or something close.
I can't think of this name off the top of my head either... She drove the
truck most of the time.
Buck -- Played the charasmatic Phys-Ad with Distance Strike and Killing
Hand. Not sure of his name either.
Mike Paffe -- Played an Electronics Warfare specialist. had fun Jamming
signals and rewiring the microwave transmitter! :]
We had access to A Beachcraft Hovervehicle outfitted with Twin machine
Guns, a Wadjina with missiles and a machine gun, and a Scouter Drone.
We started out getting some info and getting told what the run was.
basically, we had to drive from DC to Seattle as quick as possible. We
were free to use any means necessary, but were told that we weren't to make
the corps who were sponsering us look bad. We were sponsored by Renraku.
We started off easily enough, but partway outside DC, we got pulled over by
Lone Star for "inspection". Buck managed to smooth talk us out of that
with a bit of a bribe, and we continues on.
After a short while, we ran into probs with another Cannonballer (An Azzie
vehicle, I think). They launched their Wadjina and were gonna missile it.
Caric, thinking that the missiles would be Heat Guided, fired a flare gun
at it, hoping to draw off the missile. He rolled so well though, that he
ended up shooting dow the Wadjina. It crashed very near us and knocked out
one of our Hover Rotors. Loki then fired a few bursts into the windshield
of the Azzies vehicle and sent the Hovercraft off the road and put an end
to their racing days...
We had to stop in a small town in Ohio to try and make repairs, as we were
losing major time cause of the broken rotor. The town ended up being some
sort of odd Anti-Tech Amish town, with a slightly insane Preacher as their
leader. Loki and the others went to find another vehicle, which someone
mentioned might be found in a barn outside town, while Dvixen and I pulled
the old rotor off to fix it.
While Loki, Caric, and Co. were looking for the barn, they encountered a
Piasma, and made short work of it. They then found an abandoned and
hidden Hovercraft, and managed to salvage a rotor. It was smaller than
ours, but it would be better than working with a broken one.
Wile we fixed this, the town decided to mob us and drive us out, led by the
preacher and holding the typical Mob mentality Torches. Deciding that we
didn;t like this, especially my character who's afraid of fire, we fired
several bursts from the guns over their heads. We almost fired INTO them,
but decided against that at the last minute...
After that, we had to blast our way past a Gang Blockade in Chicago, then
we pulled into the stop pint safe and sound, if a little battered and
tired. We got to sleep for the night, and first thing in the morning,
headed for Denver...
TO BE CONTINUED...
((Man, this ended up longer than I expected... I'll do up round 2
