The Black Cat Society Across the Pond

Okay given our track record,

I finally see why people call us infamous.

 

As we work to get things in order to move to a new home, as well as dealing with moving to a bi-weekly schedule for a bit, the Black Cats get called into action for two whole games!

Our good friend Jeff ran a game for the Cats, you may remember him from some very early games on the podcast, we're hoping to have him back more often.  In this first game, he sets the stage across the pond in the US!  The first time most of these Cats have been over there stateside,

Cascade - Spinning Plates

October 9th, 2017

Cascade

Can't the world stay saved for just five minutes?

 

It has been six months since the events of Panicnookie.   The city's been quiet, and life starts to mend. Our heroes take some much needed time off, attempting to rebuild their lives, destress, upgrade, and gain some measure of control over their lives.  The day is October the first, and already thoughts turn to last year, and the disastrous event known as Devil's Night. The city has barely recovered from the rioting, looting, and arson.  Even now it struggles to show that it can stand on its own two feet.  The matter is made worse after an Irish mob shootout attacked a one-time nemesis of the heroes of Cascade, The Bones of Utu.   The heroes start to dig up a trail that leads them further away from the crimes on the surface...to the things happening below.

Robotech - Shallow Victories

September 25th, 2017

khyronsend

For the glory of Khyron!  Victory!

 

It has been a huge investment of life and heartache.  The Zentradi Control Zone is aswarm with malcontents.  And yet those hostages lurk in the grounded ship.  It doesn't take long to realize that something is desperately wrong with the situation, but with the Kill-Bunnies' command structure now in pieces, can they avoid making a fatal mistake while trying to anticipate the mad warrior Khyron's final assault?

The Paragons - The Wyold Times

September 8th, 2017

lucca

Being an incomparable genius, and the savior of the masses is certainly a lot of hard work, I'd just be happy if I got the credit I deserve...

The Paragons receive an urgent message regarding a kidnapped princess, but there's only two of them available to look into the matters.  So one of the resident outfitters for the team, the incomparable Lucca Ashtear, (yes from that game, don't judge me), joins up to take her GK-009 armor for a field test.  But when the Black Dog robber knights demand the King of Midland abdicate his throne, there's surely something hidden at work here...

 

Paragons-

Lady Mournblade - Cityrat turned Sword Mage

Lucca Ashtear  - Greatest Genius of her time, Savior of the masses, Caster down of the Gods themselves, and occasionally deigns to make things for people.  What?  A girl's got to make a living.

Cinder - Dwarven superweapon with an evershifting power structure.

Ran by Zakk, who also ran the Cascade game 'The Secret of the Magnum Opus'  (a good listen, give it a go!)

The Paragons - Of Fools and Floating Stones

September 5th, 2017

ship

If this boat goes beneath 55 MPH, the campaign explodes!

The Paragons snuck in an extra game on Labor Day.  Join Cinder the kicking fiend, Rina the noble Palladin, young Ashton the Ice Knight, and the cantankerous Guardian Iatos as they explore a mechanical island in search of stone-man raiding pirates.  The Paragons have certainly met their match this time, so may the cards be ever in their favor.

The Paragons - Twenty Year Grudge

September 4th, 2017

draco

I feel like I missed an integral part of the plot...

 

The Paragons of Palladium have returned for another trial run.

 

Cinder     Cinder - Fiery superweapon made during the Elf-Dwarf War.

 

(not played today) Black Arrow Iatos - Elder archer, granted a tiny sliver of supernatural skill from the creature simply known as 'The Archer'

Ashton - Elven Noble with exceptional Ice powers.  Fanboy of the Paragons

GiGi - Goblin Cobbler who made a deal with a Deevil.  Informant for the Paragons

(not played today) Rina - Raised as a Barbarian, skilled as a Paladin, with the blessing of her Pantheon.

 

The Paragons, or perhaps a second string of them, find themselves investigating a theft, that ends up having the thief beat a path to their door.  Literally.

Robotech - Meltdown

August 28th, 2017

1640158-khyron_03

Nothing so satisfying as scratching names off of a list...

 

 

Miriya
Gerao
Grell
Azonia
Khyron

The final battle of the Killbunny Squad draws ever closer.  In the heart of the Zentradi Control Zone, the possibilities of ambush are insanely high.  With only the Zentradi ex-patriot Grell to lead them, the Killbunnies seek to ID Khyron's home base without awaking the hornet's nest.

Robotech - Just One Last Mission

August 14th, 2017

Nalide

They sent me to die, but I've been dead for years.

The war ended.  We won.  That should've been it.  We should've gotten to go home, cast off those uniforms, and just try to return to humanity.  But an attack on New Macross City has trailed back to the Zentradi Control Zone in South America, proving exactly that we need to keep pushing this fight.

Nalide Nakamea is now a single mother; addicted to Zone, the combat drug that helped her survive that last battle.  She and her team have been ordered to finish this fight in South America, by hunting down the dread figure known as Khyron...also known as the Butcher of Mars.  The same place, the same battle in which Nalide was the sole survivor of...

The Paragons - Welcome to the Paragon Age!

July 16th, 2017

vanguardfreetoplay
High Action and Adventure in a whole new game concept, with Cards!

 

We're back after a few weeks off.  The Paragons of Palladium takes place in a slightly-altered timeline, which may or may not be the real events of the Elf-Dwarf War.   As it stands, the Elf-Dwarf war has been stopped by the might of a collection of 100 individuals of great strength and power.  Whether or not this tenuous unease returns or not, depends largely on the actions of this free company.

The elder bowman, the Dwarven powerhouse, the ancient monk and his apprentice, and the flirty assassin.  Together they compromise a team of the Paragons, intent on keeping the world at peace.

 

The cards played, will be presented to Kevin Siembieda at Gencon in hopes of stirring a new fun side game for the Rifter's publication.  .pub docs may be made available upon request.
