Proposed Game: Two Wrongs

System Era: Hitman

Game Master Mark C

Venue: Glanville Hall Wednesday night

In this game, you are a hitman, an assassin who eliminates targets for anyone paying the right amount.

Whether your skill is stealth, approaching your enemies unseen, firing a bullet from a neighbouring rooftop, hacking automated defences or demolishing a building to eliminate everyone inside, you are always in demand. You might be new to being an assassin, or you might be a grizzled veteran about ready for retirement. None of this matters to the Assassins’ Guild; only that you can complete the job and your team are assigned.

With the protection of the Guild, you need not fear retribution once you escape the scene of the crime – the scrubbers have your back. Every trace of you, every piece of camera footage, everyone who will testify that you were there will vanish without a trace. As a result, joining the Assassin’s Guild was never a hard decision for you, even with the possible downsides...

When you are in the field, you have only your equipment, wits and stamina to protect you from discovery and death. Guards, friends and even other assassins may stand between you and your target but you have a mission... and no-one fails the Guild and lives. The few who have ever failed and survived found themselves hunted by other members, a contract the Guild pays for itself. They lived the rest of their short lives looking over their shoulder until the day someone caught up with them and removed them.

Various agencies around the world serve as fronts to offer the Assassins’ Guild’s services, and you are sent wherever the money is. Usually, a team of assassins is sent by the guild to ensure the success of your mission. 

Assassins have existed since the birth of Humanity and they have hidden a secret for much of that time: amazing powers manifest in Humans from a certain lineage.

While most Humans will never know this, some assassins have a mutated gene. They identify and train these “Kinetic Abilities” within their ranks. Depending on who you are, it can cause affinity with metal, the ability to create force fields or even to control one of the fundamental forces of the universe! It’s far from a requirement, and not every assassin possesses an ability of any kind, but those that do are often seen as vocational assassins.

The contracts The Organisation provides are from anonymous sources: you generally don’t know, and are not encouraged to care, who the client is, as long as you are paid.

You don’t work alone, however: any good hitman knows that a support team is vital to survival. Any of the others in your team may also be skilled assassins, but only one of you can be the trigger man on any mission. Fortunately, they pay is distributed equally by The Organisation to everyone who contributes.

Your phone rings; number withheld. It is that time again.
You have a mission to complete. You are given a location and a name – your contact, not your target.
You grab the small bag you keep by the door and stride out confidently.
Your next target will never see what’s coming...

Running your combat in "Theatre of the Mind" a different Roleplaying experience

First off this is not just limited to Dungeons & Dragons, but can be applied to all systems. How To Run Narrative Combat For those used to running RPGs using a gridded battle map and miniatures, running narrative "theatre of the mind" combat can feel both terribly strange and strangely familiar. If we're used to running combat on a 5 foot per square grid, the switch to combat in the theatre of the mind can easily make us feel like something is missing. How can we really know what's going on in combat if we can't see it? The answer lies in the other two pillars of our game—exploration and interaction. We don't set up battle maps and lay out miniatures when our characters have a discussion with an NPC. We likely don't set up a big map and start counting off squares when the characters explore an ancient ruin (although we can!). We don't have visual queues when we're describing how a thief narrowly avoids a poisoned pin while attempting to disarm

Online games

We currently also host Friday night online RPG sessions For Xmas and New Years eve they are moving to Thursdays (22nd and 30th) then back to the Fridays. At the moment there are two games running alternate weeks. Talisman Where you play both the pilot and the Mech it rides in. We are in Talisman and have just escaped the clutches of the K-Rex They are now with Rabbas and the resistance. What strengths will the team bring to this rag tag resistance...... Empowered The team has just returned from the Cretaceous Period, our "Heros" find that the city has been taken over by Master Mind, the prisoners all released and the Police in the prison. So what next for our intrepid heros, how will they restore order to Ibadan, only time will tell...         What next? We are looking for more players as there will potentially be a third game being run as well. Depending on number of players we can be split over two games running the same time.
